Oh hi June 1st, so nice to see you. 🙂
I have always loved the start of June. Mainly because my birthday is approaching but also because the weather is so nice, school is coming to an end and camp time is only a few weeks away.
I can’t tell you how happy I am each morning when I wake up. Even if I am a bit tired, just knowing the weather is warm and the sun is rising well before 6:00 am makes heading outside for my run so exciting. I feel like I am celebrating in those first steps outside in my running shoes each day simply for getting to this point in the year after what feels like I suffered through so many early morning dark and dreary winter runs.
Even with the sprinklers on these days which interfere with my running path, I think I am just happy to know that the sprinklers mean green grass which means Summer!
Moving on to What I Ate Wednesday…Let’s take a look at what I ate yesterday!
I have been having an extremely hard time taking pictures of the food I eat because I am usually too hungry too care what it looks like, I just care how it tastes and satisfies my appetite.
I am not a food blogger. I don’t cook to take pictures, I cook and prepare food to eat it. So, imagine my excitement when I was super hungry after my run and this post-run bowl of oatmeal with egg whites, Skoop B Strong, cinnamon and blueberries actually photographed decently!
Usually my oatmeal looks like mush in a bowl topped with cinnamon.
I hate to say that I feel myself slowly getting away from wanting to eat eggs. I have been on a roll lately with the eggs and I am still eating them because the protein serves me well but eh, I am not really in the egg mood.
I did make this spinach and onion omelette though with roasted Japanese sweet potatoes served with mashed avocado. And lots of salt. I need a lot of salt in my food in the summer to keep up with my sweaty runs.
Salads are for dinner are becoming a routine thing around here.
In the mix: roasted brussels sprouts, onions and mushrooms, leftover Japanese sweet potatoes from lunch, feta cheese, avocado and tahini! The exclamation point is for the tahini!
I received two types of tahini from Sesame King (garlic tahini and honey tahini) which I have been playing with using over the last several days. More about the tahini maybe on Friday.
The usual apple with some peanut butter, a sprinkle of Skoop and Trader Joe’s Midnight Moo.
