I made a poppyseed dressing from Choosing Raw and it was amazing. If you like poppyseed dressings I suggest trying this one out.
I topped my pear and walnut salad with it. Wow Ireally want to eat this everyday it was that good.
Had some green crackers along the side. They turned out okay. I think I needed to grind the rice a bit more, but I was glad to see that I could add swiss chard to them and they still look cracker form. More experiementation will be needed 🙂
I planned to go for a run while waiting for my oil to be changed. Thought it would be a 45-60 minute wait… when I got there I was told I’d be waiting for an hour and 45 minutes! First I was annoyed but then I thought why not turn my run I was planning to do into a long run. The day was sunny and 52 degrees, prefect to run in, and I was feeling energetic so I quickly changed my attitude and went exploring an area I hadn’t really been to before.
It was so much fun going along without a plan. I ended up running 9.1 miles (87 minutes). That’s my longest run since the 1/2 marathon a month ago! Since I hadn’t really been working toward running that much I was majorly pooped toward the end and walk for 30 minutes to get back to my car after my 9.1 miles (plus it was all uphill!). Stopped for a soy hot chocolate at a new coffee shop I’d been wanting to try before picking up my car. It was a glorious afternoon.
The rest of the day was filled with the yard/garden prep, planting my peas outside and starting basil, tomatoes, bell peppers, brussels sprouts and cilantro inside. I still have a couple more things to start inside but I ran out of time before we headed over to Jacob’s parents house for dinner. I was pretty glad not to cook. Long runs like that really wear me out.
Coffee no more
I’ve been doing great without coffee. The first day I was a bit headachey but I’m feeling fantastic without it now. I’ve been enjoying different chai teas in the mornings because I still want my caffein 😉 Jacob’s mom gave me a white chai tea to try. Just drank a cup and really liked it. I think my favorite so far is the double spiced chai tea. I’m a bit fan of all the spice.
Question: Do you make lists when you have a lot to do or do you just dive into it?
I always make lists, at home and at work. They really help me stay focused and on task, plus I always feel great marking things off when I finish them!
