Parents are visiting, and they wanted @2ndavedeli. I insisted everyone eat salads before our order arrived, and this is the carnage that ensued! 😆 I got the matzo ball soup and had a small amount of corned beef and pastrami + 1 slice of bread. So tasty! Here is one of my go-to snacks 60-90min before a workout - sprouted wheat bread with some kind of nut butter (1-2 Tbsp), banana, drizzle honey and hemp seeds. So stoked that I’ve gotten up to 45min / 5+ miles without pain this week, the longest I’ve run since my injury in October!! And what gorgeous weather for it too. I finally signed up for a race - the Brooklyn Half Marathon in May - so time to build back my endurance. Post-run, had two whole eggs + 1/2 avo on top of another slice of bread + orange slices - solid balanced meal to promote recovery. Going veg tonight for dinner with seared ginger soy organic tofu on a bed of colorful stir fried veggies. Happy long weekend! Sharing scrambled eggs with feta, spinach & tomatoes + guac + blueberries with my little breakfast buddy. 👶🏻 What a great care package! Thanks @biohmhealth - excited to try out all the goodies. Already enjoyed some of the chocolate for dessert last night! 😋 Last night’s delicious & healthy dinner, cooked by my husband (who seems to be spending more time in the kitchen than me these days)! Wild sea bass, baked eggplant, & radish/cuc/tomato salad, with s’mores as our treat for dessert. ❤️
