After yesterday's 14 mile run, I decided I should rest my legs today. I had a fantastic long run despite the cloudy weather and the wretched humidity. I made sure to hydrate at every water fountain and I splashed some water on my belly to keep baby Myles cool =).
Now that I'm all rested, time to get ready for the work week. Here's what my Food Prep looks like for the week:
On the menu:
(From left to right)
- Snack: Dehydrated apples
- Lunch: Walnut and pea salad with balsamic vinaigrette & sweet potato with grilled chicken
- Snack: Green grapes with a slice of pear & cottage cheese
- Snack: Hummus with hard-boiled eggs (Pregnant woman craving!)
How I prepared it:
I bought the bulk size dehydrated apples bag from Costco. Seven slices equals 1 apple.
Walnut & pea salad: I mixed 2 cans of organic peas with 2 cups of walnut, balsamic vinaigrette, ground black pepper, and a dash of vegan cheese (it's not real cheese).
Lunch: I wrapped 2 sweet potatoes in cellophane paper and placed it in the microwave for 9 minutes each. For the chicken, I placed a bunch of organic chicken on the barbecue and grilled them for about 7-8 minutes. I topped the chicken with garlic powder, oregano and parsley.
For the fruits, I placed all the grapes and pears in a bowl and I let the hot water pour on them for a bit.
Voila! I got lunch and snacks for the week!!
I'm grateful for spending Saturday
night with my best friend Andy and his
fiancée Crissy at their engagement party.
