I had gotten myself a little too busy working on Bar Mitzvah stuff over the last several days rather than working on a post for yesterday so if you were wondering where I was, there’s the answer. In fact, should I continue to randomly miss my normal posting days between now and October 15th, that will most likely always be the reason why.
You are probably tired of hearing about the Bar Mitzvah just as much as I am tired of planning it but this is my life right now. I am really getting down to the nitty gritty parts of the planning which is overwhelming and wonderful at the same time. I am looking forward to the party, of course, but I am also looking forward to when it is over so I can have some of my brain space back.
So it’s Wednesday already but we are going to look at what I ate on Monday.
My friend Dina and I both work for the same company (which I am pretty sure I have told you in the past) and since we both work remotely (or from the city office on occasion) we mixed things up on Monday by working from my house as if we were an office.
It was nice to set up our laptops at my kitchen table and work independently yet together for a change!
I had my usual pre run oatmeal and coffee followed by oats in a jar after my run. I really need to stop using my almost empty peanut butter jars during the week because I really do like to save them for after my long runs on the weekend but I just couldn’t help myself.
Dina arrived shortly after I ate and we snacked on watermelon during the morning while we worked.
I can be so lazy in meal preparation but I wanted to put together a nice salad for us so we didn’t have to go out to eat. I have been eating out way too much and honestly, I am quite capable of making a salad that is much better than any restaurant.
I call it the Power Salad.
In the mix:
Roasted sweet potatoes
Roasted grape tomatoes
This Power Salad does not need dressing. The flavor of the roasted vegetables combined with the feta cheese and avocado reduces any desire for additional flavor or texture.
Roasting your grape tomatoes will really heighten their flavor. Trust me, do it.
I picked up a spaghetti squash while I was in Stew Leonard’s so I roasted it along with some vegetables. Topped with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese, it’s a perfect vegetarian meal.
I have gone back to warming up my diced granny smith apple in the evening and then topping it with the following:
A sprinkle of Skoop B-Strong
A drizzle of Midnight Moo
Trader Joe’s Muesli
It’s cooler than usual outside this morning (67 degrees) so I am looking forward to running a few easy miles before some Pure Barre. Have a great Wednesday. 🙂Monday in Meal #WIAW #salad #vegetarian #oatmeal #Skoop #mitzvahplanning #watermelon Click To Tweet
