I started out the new month with a great 10 miler. The weather was perfect- not too hot or too cold and more importantly, there wasn’t any snow in sight! Even with my ipod dying at mile 2 (really!?), I managed to push myself to average a 7:50 min/mile. It was definitely a less frustrating run than last Sunday!
On a side note, pacing is really hard in the city, there can be way too much starting and stopping, so I try not to read too much into my Garmin. Gernerally, I am pleased if I average under an 8 min/mile. I do really need to get my butt over to the Lakeshore path though so I can run without stopping at every block.
Breakfast was something new. A week or two ago, I remembered that I had purchased raw oat flour awhile back and have started trying to use it more (protein cupcakes etc.). I have also always wanted to make one of Ashley‘s breakfast bake recipes but never wanted to buy buckwheat flour. Well, in one of her recent posts she mentioned that you could sub oat flour for buckwheat flour in the breakfast bakes. It was like the stars aligned, I could make a breakfast bake .
I also mixed some plain greek yogurt, peanut flour, and maple syrup together to make some protein pudding to put on top.
This was a great quick breakfast option. I love that it didn’t take long to make. It was also surprisingly filling! I will definitely be making this again
I have a lot of assignments due in the next two weeks so I started working almost immediately after finishing breakfast. I forced myself to finish my homework due tomorrow before even thinking about lunch.
But when I did, it was glorious.
Arugula, tomatoes, mushrooms, snap peas, and sausage-less sausage.
The true star of the show was the salad dressing.
If you love cilantro, you will love this dressing. Although, I will warn you that you will most likely not love what it does to your breath .
I kept lunch light because I’m working from home today and I’m sure in an hour or two I’ll need a break from homework and I’ll find myself searching for a snack in the kitchen.
Alright kiddos, back to the books!
