Anyway, I made up for my lack of yoga this morning with 50 minutes of yoga this evening. It felt great, and now I feel good and stretched out for my 3-1/2 mile training run tomorrow morning! :)
Breakfast: Ezekiel Cinnamon Raisin muffin with 1-1/2 tbsp almond butter, sliced apple and cranberry ketchup! Oh my...this was delicious! I love the Ezekiel Muffin/nut butter/fruit combo...it keeps me so satisfied!
Several of you have asked for the cranberry ketchup recipe, which I got from Erin at Care To Eat. I've asked her permission to post, so if she says yes I will hopefully have it up tomorrow! If you can't wait though, just send her an email and I'm sure she'll give it to you, she's a sweetie!
Morning Snack: I didn't need a snack because my super-hearty breakfast kept me happy through the morning. But when my hubb brought me a donut from his office, I just couldn't resist! Actually, it was a spudnut...even better. Have you ever heard of a Spudnuts? I hadn't before moving to Charlottesville. Apparently Spudnuts used to be all over the country but I thought that ours was the last in existence, until finding the above website that states there are still 35 locations spread across the USA. Here's ours...

A spudnut is a donut made with potato flour, and they are heavenly. Better than a Krispy Kreme any day of the week... I chose a glazed spudnut with shredded coconut on top. YUM. It had been so long that I forgot how good they are. Indulgent. :)
Lunch: Whole wheat pita stuffed with TJ's edamame hummus, alfalfa sprouts, broccoli slaw and red bell pepper, along with TJ's split pea soup. I didn't eat the second 1/2 of my pita...perhaps because I was full of spudnut?!?!? The TJ's split pea soup was pretty good. I honestly have nothing to compare it too....I'm pretty sure this was my first split pea soup experience ever! Surprising for a girl who loves her soup...
Snack: I'm in fridge/freezer/pantry clean-out mode, and it was driving me crazy this morning that I had just a little Kashi H2H left in the pantry but didn't want cereal for breakfast. So, I added it to the trail mix that the hubb made me last week and brought the tub to the office to live.
It contains: Kashi H2H, mixed nuts, dried cherries, pineapple and pears, and crystalized ginger. I had about 1/2 a cup of the small stuff and one dried pear.
Dinner: Veggie Bean Chili a la my hubb...he's the best! We had it over brown rice pasta, with a little sprinkling of cheddar on top. I also had a glass of Meridian Cabernet...this is one of our favorite wines for every day.
Well, I officially have 3 full days left before leaving for Florida Tuesday morning!!! Soooooo excited, but this weekend is going to be ridiculously busy so my posting may be minimal... Here are a few To Do's:
- training run (3-1/2 miles!)
- finish knitting

- make christmas gift boxes for c'ville friends (bark, marshmallows and hot cocoa mix)
- finish wrapping presents
- laundry and packing
- yoga sunday afternoon
- make dessert for company party
