Thank God it’s finally the weekend! This week has seriously been dragging by!
Who is ready for some Friday favorites?
1. Bison Burgers
I recently purchased some grass fed bison from Tropical Traditions. They were having an online sale a few weeks ago and I managed to get this cheaper (with shipping!) then it would have cost me at Whole Foods. Actually, the bison at Whole Foods isn’t grass fed, so I probably won’t purchase it there again. When it comes to meat, I am REALLY picky! If it doesn’t meet my standards, I simply won’t buy it or eat it.
2. Peanut Butter Oaties
These are AMAZING.
The second I opened the package, the wonderful smell of peanut butter floated through my nostrils. To me, that is what heaven smells like
3. The Treadmill
Did I just say that?
Between the cold weather and the icy roads, this is the only way I have been able to run this week. It makes me feel like a hamster on a wheel, but sometimes it is the lesser of two evils.
Simply put: Running indoors is better than not running at all.
Running: 9.12 miles
Arc Trainer: 30 minutes
When I woke up this morning, my hip was SORE. If you didn’t read my post yesterday, I slipped on some ice and took a spill.
It doesn’t hurt to walk, run, or move around, but it is quite uncomfortable to sit down. I had to eat my bison burger (see above) standing up last night!
Luckily, running felt just fine. After the initial soreness and tightness went away, I was plugging away on the treadmill for a progressive style run. I started my pace at around 8:00/mile to warm up, but I worked my way down to 6:23/mile for the last one. I am going to be sore tomorrow! I haven’t run that fast in ages!
Thanks to waking up extra early this morning, I had time to cool down on the arc trainer. After 30 minutes of watching Saved By The Bell (best morning show ever), my workout was done. Boy that felt good today
4. Eat, Drink, and Be Vegan Cookbook
I’ve had this cookbook for almost a year now, but I’m finally starting to actually use it!
My diet is nowhere near Vegan and I don’t believe in labels, but this cookbook really does have some great recipes.
So what if I added yogurt to the Banana Cream Pancakes?
It’s still a good recipe
What is your favorite cookbook?
After a few months of re-runs, I am so happy that my favorite show is back to new episodes!
Plus, Lea Michele is smokin’
6. Millet Bread
Soft, buttery, and simply delicious…
This is the best sandwich bread that I’ve ever purchased. Not the best bread ever, but definitely the best “packaged bread”
So tell me, what are you loving this week?
