I woke up at 5:30 am to run before the heat hit (so I didn’t have to get picked up and driven home like in Costa Rica…see below).
I walked more, ran slower and it felt good.
I took a nap on my couch, which I haven’t done in forever.
I woke up cranky, got out of the house, and visited friends so I wouldn’t be a beast all day. (aka so my husband could come home to a not bwitchy wife)
I spent $130 on a new food processor (thanks to 20% off with Bed, Bath and Beyond coupon). It hurt, but had to be done.
I walked out of JCREW without buying anything…which almost never happens.
I realized the suit I bought my husband (without him to save time) makes him look like he’s in the early 90′s.
I figured out I am drinking too much coffee and not enough water.
I made pesto that became a dip and sauce.
(What doesn’t taste good with Mary’s Gone Crackers??)
(Not Your Typical) Pesto
- 2 Cloves Garlic
- 1 C Pumpkin Seeds
- 1/4 C Olive Oil
- 1 t Lemon Juice
- Pinch Salt (optional)
- 1/2 C Fresh Basil
- 1 large handful fresh spinach
Throw all ingredients in food processor and pulse until combined. Serve over pasta, fish, chicken, with crackers, pizza, anything!
*The pumpkin seeds add protein and provide you with magnesium and B vitamins. You CANNOT taste the spinach in here, it’s a great way to “sneak” in greens to someone who won’t eat them willingly when it is visibly there.
Now that I’ve posted waaayyy too many pictures of myself in one post, I’m going to start my day with an iced coffee with 2 glasses of water!
I’m SO looking forward to going to The Bar Method with Fit Chick in the City and other girls and then going to a Thrive seminar with Brendan Brazier, professional triathlete, plant based nutrition expert and best selling author at Lululemon Soho.
See you tomorrow!
