Hiya, friends! Anyone else feeling the effects of today’s hotter-than-hot heat index?
There’s nothing quite like a 100-degree-plus heat index to usher in the first day of summer.
In an attempt to escape the humidity, my mom, sisters, and I went to the mall. Before starting to shop, we needed to fuel up. Hitting up Koto, one of our favorite restaurants, was a no-brainer.
I started with a house salad, which came drenched in ginger dressing.
For my main meal, I ordered the Spicy Trio, which included spicy salmon rolls, spicy tuna rolls, and spicy yellowtail rolls. If you can’t beat the heat, you might as well join it, right? Promptly after, I slipped into a sushi coma.
It’s one of my all-time favorite food comas, right behind frozen grapes and dark chocolate.
The Elixir of Summer Life facilitated my revival.
Iced French vanilla coffee with skim milk and one Splenda.
If you’re in the market for a homemade black bean burger (BBB) recipe, then your search is over.
My momma’s California BBB, plus roasted mushrooms and green beans.
To ramp up the burger’s nutrient profile, I placed a handful of spinach between the bun and paddie. I also added a little Tabasco sauce.
CNY Triathlon Club
Wednesday night means CNY Triathlon Club training sessions, but I decided to forgo tonight’s workout—it’s just too hot. It’s important to be smart about outdoor training, especially during temperature extremes. Plus, last week’s triathlon was no cakewalk, and the intense heat would only make the three-sport event dangerously difficult for me. No worries; there’s always next week. Have you ever opted out of a race or event because of extreme temperatures?
I’m off to organize my Pinterest boards! Enjoy your night!
