When I got in this morning, I immediately filled up my new water bottle (isn't it pretty??) I had brought in a HUGE Envirosax filled with all sorts of fruits, veggies and "mixtures" for lunches for the week. I also brought a big container of Raw Donut Holes for breakfast and snacks. For breakfast, I grabbed two 'donut holes' from the fridge. It was very tasty. Around 10:30, I cracked open my first Lara Bar!
This flavor was Cocoa Mole and you could certainly taste the spices! It was good, not great, but good. It was VERY spicy though. I liked it better the more bites I took. I only ate half before the gym. At 12, I went to the gym. I was going to do boot camp but last second, I decided to run. I ran three miles FAST. I started at 7.0 and went up to 8.5 and finished 3.0 miles in 24:50.
When I got back to work, it was time for our lunch spread!!! I called Gretchen and we both got several of our tupperware out of the fridge to start the the feast.
We had Romaine Lettuce, Collard Greens, Endive and Radichio to make wraps along with various vegetables- golden beets, red and yellow peppers, guacamole and three dishes from Ani's recipes. I had made the Taco 'Meat' and the Broccoli Mash and Gretchen made the Garden Pate. I also brought a dressing made of EVOO, Balsamic Vinegar and Mustard. I also shredded some Raw Goat Cheese on top of the Broccoli and Meat Mixture. I started off having a romaine lettuce wrap with all the fillings, and then I had a collard green wrap, some 'taco meat' on an endive and a little bit of the radicchio with the mixtures. Here are the pictures!
I couldn't exactly get this one to wrap!
And for dessert, another 'donut hole.'
Around 4:30, I finished the rest of the Lara Bar.
For dinner, I made the Garden Pate that Gretchen made for lunch. My version was a little too ginger-y and garlic-y. I think I'm still tasting it!!! My raisins also didn't seem to want to mix in the food processor so a lot of them ended up whole. But it was still quite tasty! I put the mixture on Romaine Lettuce and rolled it up with celery, carrots, cucumber and avocado. I also added a dressing on top of EVOO, Cider Vinegar, Oregano and Mustard. On the side, I had a spinach and mushroom salad!
I also shredded some Raw Goat Cheese on top for extra flavor. This was feeling, but I did have seconds. I ended up having one more wrap with more avocado, yum! Then I cleaned the dishes and headed up to bed where I am currently blogging while watching Biggest Loser.
Overall, I feel pretty good and today wasn't too difficult and I don't feel like I miss the meat. My stomach still hurt today however so I am hoping tomorrow I will feel even better! I'm going to bed soon, I have a busy day tomorrow and I want to run before work. Hopefully I will get up when that alarm goes off! Nitey nite!
