Hey everybody! Hope you’re having a great Tuesday. 🙂
I had a good workout with my trainer this morning (low reps with heavy weights and staggered pushups) plus a nice long run. I know cardio sessions will be few and far between this week between all the packing and moving so I’m trying to fit them in when I can. 😉
Then I headed over to Sunflower Farmers Market. I can’t believe I’ve never been in this place before! It kind of reminded me of a mix between Sprouts and Trader Joe’s. I definitely could have gone crazy in there but I tried to reel it in. I am moving in a few days after all and I don’t really need a stocked fridge.
They had a large fresh produce selection. I picked up some asparagus.
There was a decent pet selection too! They even had cat grass.
I did, however, come across one deal too good to pass up…
I couldn’t wait so I had a nice cold kombucha for the drive home.
Some other great finds:
Ezekiel mini pita pockets.
Basil pesto hummus – yum!
Garden of Life Raw Protein in single serving samples. Love this – I’m shopping around for a new protein powder and I like to sample before I commit to a whole container.
A happy fridge.
After I unloaded the groceries I devoured my breakfast cookie like a wild animal. I was starving!
Then I made lunch using some leftover salmon and a few of my market purchases.
Salmon and warm quinoa with spinach, cucumber and asparagus.
I cooked 1/4 c quinoa (Trader Joe’s) according to package instructions. When it was nearly ready (if quinoa can be ‘al dente’) I added in asparagus I’d grilled on the Foreman along with some chopped english cucumber (about 1/4 c of each), 1 tbsp olive oil, the juice and zest of 1/4 lemon, sea salt and pepper. I mixed it all together and heated it on low for a couple minutes. At the last second I stirred in about 1 c of baby spinach leaves and about 1/2 tbsp of the basil pesto hummus I’d bought (this was the secret ingredient!) and served it up alongside a warm salmon filet. So light and delicious!
I always overestimate the amount of quinoa I need so I ended up saving half for a future meal. Another bonus: I also grilled up some chicken on the Foreman alongside the asparagus so that takes care of lunch for tomorrow. 🙂
I’m off to do a little packing before a skype session with my best friends. We’re planning our annual girls’ trip!
See you tomorrow!
