I’ve been on a little bit of a (healthy) takeout bender lately. I’ve been pretty cranky and have had no desire to cook. Usually when this happens, I finally reach a breaking point. (My wallet always jumps up and thanks me for this.)
Yesterday I was excited to check out a farmer’s market I’d heard about near my apartment. I headed out with my reusable bags…only to find it was closed. I kept walking and walked up to Whole Foods, where I bought A TON of food.
Some of my creations in the past 24 hours:
Chicken, sundried tomatoes, spinach and feta on a whole wheat wrap for a late lunch after a crappy, crappy five-mile run.
A soba noodle stir fry with peppers, onions, chicken and broccoli sauteed with soy sauce and a bit of sesame oil.
A pretzel bagel with sunflower butter as a post-dinner snack. (The Thomas people sent them to me, and they’re REALLY good. I’ve also tried them with ketchup and they’re just as good with ketchup.)
In my mix:
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 cup almond milk
- a few drops of chocolate almond extract that I found in my pantry (I have no recollection of buying or receiving this as a gift or sample…)
- one chopped banana
- whatever sunflower butter melts off the side of the jar
I’m going to need a lot of coffee this morning. I stayed up late to watch Obama’s statement on capturing bin Laden–did you watch?
