After my vacation swim at the time share pool last week I was excited to do some lap swimming when I got back home. Jacob even wants to get his swim on with me too!! I checked online to find out when the neighborhood pool opens in the morning and found out it closed as of Feb 28th. Sad, I never got a chance to swim there and it was so close to my house.
Luckily there’s another pool about 1.5 miles away from home and it’s actually the pool I used to swim in when I was on a swimming team growing up. It’ll be interesting to see how the place looks now that I’m not a kid anymore.
I guess what I’m going to take away from this is to not procrasticate when there’s something I want to do that may be new or challenging. I had been wanting to try out the pool when I discovered it almost 2 years ago but never made the time and now the opportunity is gone.
Okay, enough about that. Let’s get to some food! Sunday turned into a veggie day. Just what I wanted and my body needed.
Lunch was a delicious whole wheat naan topped with 1/2 a smashed avocado, black eyed peas and tomato with a side of sliced zucchini.
I dehydrated some sweet potato chips for my afternoon snack using my new mandolin!!
They turned out okay. I’m used to my sweet potato being… well sweet. These were only slightly sweet and had more of a mealy texture to them.
The wraps were filled with black eyed peas, mushrooms, spinach and home made BBQ sauce. I tried to eat it with my hands and it ended up exploding on me. I ate 4, Jacob ate 2. Guess he wasn’t the biggest fan. He said that the filling was good, he just didn’t like the wrap. Lucky him I have extra filling so he’ll be enjoying that over some rice sometime this week.
I’m such a lucky lady. Jacob is so willing to try out my food experiments. The good and the bad 🙂 This was a good meal in my book!
After 20 minutes of yoga this morning I had a yummy bowl of pumpkin chia oats with 2 egg whites whisked in and topped with almond butter and pumpkin seeds. Could I ask for anything more??
