Everything But The Kitchen Sink

This morning started off quite well! I had a piece of toast for breakfast (made with Arnold bread). At work, I had a mid-morning snack of a tiny apple, some grapes and half of a banana. I wasn't that hungry this morning, probably leftover from all the food I ate on Saturday still! The morning really flew by. For lunch I had a salad with lots of toppings. That is my favorite thing for lunch right now. I love to just throw everything but the kitchen sink on top of a bed of lettuce:

Today, it included:
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Cucumber
  • Israeli Couscous
  • Pomegranate arils :)
  • Unsalted peanuts
  • Sprinkle of cheese
  • Cauliflower
  • 2 veggie meatballs
  • Oh... and lettuce
It was one of my best yet. The sweet juiciness of the pomegranate really added to the salad. I am so happy they are in season right now. I was able to get off work early and came home and got pumped for my 5 mile run today!
Snapped a few photos with my cuddly kitty:

When the husband got home we ran our 5 miles.. the longest distance I have ever run! I got 2 really bad side-stitches after about 20 minutes of running. They did go away but I was worried they were there for the long-haul. For dinner we had leftover veggie pizza and I had some steamed spinach. On our pizza we had:
  • whole wheat pizza crust
  • regular spaghetti sauce
  • feta
  • artichoke hearts
  • mushrooms
  • jalapenos
It was really one of my best yet. I like to make homemade pizzas. That way I can control what goes onto it.

I certainly feel a snack coming on for later! Maybe some frozen yogurt.. yum yum.
Have a good night!
