For breakfast, I orginally had planned to make a 2 egg omelet, but it didn’t quite turn out that way. Sometimes I beat the eggs in a bowl, then add them to the pan, and sometimes, I just crack them in the skillet and use a spatula to mix them around. My husband’s turned out fine doing this, but mine, well, not so much. By the time I got mine in the pan, and grabbed the spatula, they were already starting to set. So they kind of turned out a cross between scrambled and an omelet. My husband called it a scramblet. So anyway, here’s my scramblet. Funky looking, but tasty.
Our workout consisted of run/walk intervals for 2.75 miles. We usually work out in the early evening, but today we decided to go a little earlier. Bad idea. It.Was.Hot. Lesson learned. On the other hand, my pasty white legs finally got some real sun. 🙂
Lunch was a quickly thrown together spinach salad topped with sardines and kalamata olives. A little red onion would have made it better, but I didn’t have any. 🙁 It wasn’t the most beautiful creation, but it tasted good, and the sardines provided a healthy dose of protein and nutrients.
Did you know that sardines are a great source of calcium, phosphorous, and iron? They are also an excellent source of Omega 3 and Coenzyme Q10.
I’ve tried a couple of other brands before, but I recently picked up a can of Wild Planet sardines to try. They have 4 kinds available, but our Sprouts grocery store only had the kind in extra virgin olive oil with lemon. There was actually a little slice of lemon in the can!
The sardines were firm, looked better than the other brands I’ve tried, and tasted better.
As I type this, my husband and I are sitting at Starbucks. He’s working, and I’m blogging. I had planned to get an iced coffee, but it was SO cold in there, I ordered a hot black coffee. Why are all Starbucks freezing cold? I packed some raw almonds in my bag so that we would have a handy snack while we were there.
Dinner: After we left Starbucks, we headed home to make dinner. I had two pounds of ground chicken in the fridge that I planned to turn into chicken patties. I made a total of six patties, so I now have the protein portion of two meals for the weekend. I seasoned them up simply with salt and pepper, then cooked them in some coconut oil. Tonight, I topped two of the patties with the leftover spaghetti sauce from Wednesday night. I steamed some broccoli, and added a little butter to it while it was still steaming hot to melt it. Eating a healthy fat like butter with your veggies helps your body to absorb the nutrients.
I ended up feeling a little hungry later in the evening, so I ate two slices of nitrate-free turkey sandwich meat, followed by a bowl of mixed berries.
Hope you all have a good weekend!
