Hi, everyone! How was your Moan Monday? It’s been a busy day over here, but first, here are some more pictures from Sunday’s apple-picking trip at Beak & Skiff.
We picked Cortland and Macouns yesterday, and the apples were really small.
Ellen and I attempted to make a human ladder.
Oh, well—we had a ton of fun, and I can’t wait to start baking some apple-based recipes.
Workout – Run
After two cups of coffee, plenty of water, and a GU energy gel, I hit the pavement for a 5.25-mile run this morning. Although the run itself was uneventful—just an out-and-back loop with some fartleks sprinkled in for good measure—today’s apparel is worth noting: long-sleeved Under Armour top and bottoms.
This means fall has arrived. Following my run, I also did some upper-body strength training and ab exercises.
My morning meal came in the form of overnight oats in a jar.
This never gets old. Today’s mixture contained frozen strawberries and blueberries, plus Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup old fashioned oats, 1/2 cup almond milk, cinnamon and chia seeds. I love using frozen fruit because it thaws in the fridge and leaves tasty juice that the yogurt soaks up.
My mom asked me to go grocery shopping at Wegmans (more on this shortly), so I picked up soup and sushi for lunch.
I used to have this combo nearly every weekend in college, but it’s been a while since I enjoyed some S&S. To start, I had spicy red lentil soup.
This was my first time having it, and I’m a fan. Sriracha might make an appearance in the future—the spicer, the better! After polishing off the soup, I dug into the spicy shrimp jalapeño roll.
I topped each piece with some Wasabi—delicious!
In other news, here’s what the eating area of the kitchen looked like earlier today.
Ah, the joys of window replacement.
Off to cook dinner–we’re trying a new recipe tonight, Paleo Pad Thai.
What’s your go-to lunch combo lately?
