What I Ate Wednesday
Yesterday was a beautiful fall day here in Michigan! I had a 5 mile run on the to do list so after doing a few housework chores in the morning the kiddos and I headed out to enjoy the weather.
I am blessed to have a metropark a couple miles from our house and I love going there to run. They have an 8 mile bike/hike trail through the woods. I love that I can run there and not worry about cars or crazy dogs. I loaded the two younger kids into our Burley jogging stroller and did a 5 mile run on the trail. After the run we went to the playground and played for while.
I am running the Grand Rapids half marathon on Oct 21. I signed up with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training in the spring and have raised over $1300. Only a few more weeks until the race!
I missed taking pictures of a couple of my meals but I actually remembered to take a picture of my breakfast! And it is really hard to make oatmeal look good in pictures.
Breakfast was the standard oatmeal with banana, peanut butter, flax seed, and almond milk.
I actually didn’t have a morning snack. By the time we got back from the park it was time for lunch.
Lunch was leftover curried carrot soup with a Tofurky turkey sandwich. I will be posting the recipe for the soup soon!
For an afternoon snack I had a macadamia oat scone that I had made in the morning. I will be posting the recipe for those later also.
I forgot to take a picture of my dinner. My oldest daughter is involved in an Adventurer club at our church (kind of like boy scouts or girl scouts) and they had a bowling party in the evening. The kids ate pizza there but I didn’t want to eat pizza so I quickly ate a burrito before taking the kids to the party.
The burrito had refried beans, lettuce, peppers, tomato, and salsa in a whole wheat tortilla.
