Tasty Bite, Salad Delight
Hi there! How’s your week going so far? I for one cannot believe it’s already Wednesday! I don’t mind when weeks speed by. It usually happens when the week prior was an expecially grueling one, such as in my case.
Yesterday I had the chance to try out a new product for lunch called Tasty Bite
Tasty Bite offers all kinds of meal inspirations – entrees, sides, sauces, rices – that are all natural and ready to eat in 90 seconds. The products come in microwaveable pouches and are shelf-stable, ready to eat foods.
Loren offered my several samples from the vegetarian line, and I couldn’t wait to try them out.
Yesterday’s lunch was the spiced chickpeas with Basmati rice.
When I opened the chickpeas, I was a little fearful, because the appearance resembled dog food.
What a fun and convenient idea! The ingredients were pretty stellar too – nothing scary!
I woke up super early this morning again – not to train a client, but to get in a workout myself. The alarm went off and I was off – to the gym- where I did a 40 minute tempo run, followed by some bicep and tricep work. I have to admit, my strength training has been slacking lately. Even though I’m a personal trainer, I have to work to fit it in, too. With running season at its height, it’s my main priority, but strength training is such an important supplement to running.
So last night after I came home from training a couple clients, I didn’t feel like spending much time on dinner. And since our fridge looks like a Tupperware party, leftovers it was. But that wasn’t all. Sure, I had Sunday night’s whole wheat portabella lasagna roll ups, but on the side, I had this stellar salad:
It contained romaine, feta, sesame seeds, a bit of pine nuts, fresh figs (!!!!) and a dressing of EVOO + apple cider vinegar + sea salt + stevia. It was SO good. It was actually my first time trying a fresh fig, so I was a little weary. But I like the little cuties – sweet, but not too sweet, and with a little crunch, even. Delicious!
Well I just got home from an early morning treadmill sesh at the gym. The training planned for a 40 minute tempo run, so in total, I ran about 50 minutes with the warm up and cool down and covered just over 5 miles. Feeling great!
I’m off to prepare for the day! Have a good one, all!
