Yay, What I ate Wednesday is back! I was so inspired by all of the posts last week. I had all sorts of grand plans to make new foods from them, but the week just got away from me and I ended up not really going to the store or trying anything new. Next week I WILL be better. :-D
Here it is: What I ate on Tuesday, for What I ate Wednesday!
Lemon barley stew the same as last time, but with an added zucchini.
Another snack of a peanut butter pretzel cliff bar. Mmmmmm.
I lost another bet, but the request this time was one I can *totally* get on board with. Veggie meat tacos! I usually have black bean tacos, but when a veggie meal is requested of course I'm going to indulge.
My taco had some spiced veggie meat, spinach and lazy girl guac.
Lazy girl Guacamole
1 or 2 avocados, ripe. 1 avocado gives a really spicy zesty flavor, while using two avocados makes a creamier richer sauce
Juice of one lime
1 serrano pepper (or jalapeno), seeded
Salt and pepper to taste.
Put the lime juice, pepper and shallot in the bowl of your food processor. Blend! Then, add the avocado. Blend for a couple pulses. Spoon into a bowl and add salt and pepper to taste.
I used to chop all my veggies for my guac by hand. This is MUCH easier. :-). I also no longer add tomatoes to my guacamole because they always seem to make it too watery. I chop up some tomatoes and add them on top.
Goals from last week: "Goals for next week are 10mi total, a speedy workout of 8:30/mi and a long work out of over 3 mi."
6/30- 2.65 @ 9:51/mi
7/1- 1.35 @ 9:05/mi. Not as speedy as I wanted. Note to self--no beers before running.
7/2- 4.3 @10:43/mi. I walked for 1 min every mile on this long run to try to save my knees.
7/5- 2.65@10:00/mi. Just feeling crappy :-(
Goals for next week: Run at least four days for a total of at least 10 mi. Do the same 4.3 mi loop without walking. I am pretty sure my knees can handle it. Speedy run of under 8:30.
Eating goals: Less processed food, more variety! I want to make at least 3 new meals inspired by YOUR WAIW posts. So I'm going to go start looking through them now!! <3
