Saturday eggs, smoothies, & tuna salad

This morning I woke up bright and early to try and pick up on my interval running (even though I had already decided to take a week off of high-impact excercise)…  I was able to get 1.5 intervals in before my knee started hurting 🙁  Looks like I’m going to be in the walking group at the Healthy Living Summit.


Breakfast of champions

After my disappointing run, I wanted a delicious breakfast to perk me up.  I cooked up 1 egg sunny side up, and had a piece of Country Hearth 12 Grain bread with sunflowers and a half a cup of oven baked potatoes:

Why are egg yolks SOOOO delicious tasting?  I find them oddly decadent!

Soon after downing this delicious breakfast, I was already feeling hungry and decided to make a fruit smoothie. 

I threw the following into the blender:

  • 1 container Yoplait Strawberry Greek Yogurt
  • 1/2 cup Almond Breeze unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 1/4 cup fresh blueberries
  • 6 medium strawberries
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup ice

This puppy definitely filled my belly up!

After watching me down my smoothie, Jarrod got jealous and decided he wanted a smoothie too.  So we threw the following into the blender:

  • 1 scoop optimum nutrition whey chocolate protein
  • 1/2 cup frozen sliced bananas
  • 1 tbsp JIF peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup ground-up quick oats
  • 1/2 cup Almond Breeze unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 1/2 cup ice

This doesn’t look like much, but I tried a sip and it was AMAZING: 

Tasted like a shake you’d get at a hamburger stand.  I’m going to try and make a lower-calorie version sometime!

A little before lunch, I headed over to my mom’s house for some quality time with the fam.  Just as I was about to leave, I locked my keys in my trunk…  😯 What am I, 16 again?  When I was younger, I had the joy of consistently locking my keys in my car.  Actually, the day I first got my license I locked my keys in my trunk and had to have my dad come rescue me…. Oh joy….

Once I got the key situation all worked out, I headed home to make a tuna wrap for lunch.  Here’s what went into the tuna salad:

  • 1 can chunk light tuna in water, drained
  • 1/4 cup red onion
  • 1/2 a chopped roma tomato
  • 1 tbsp Ken’s Steakhouse Lite Creamy Ceaser Dressing
  • S&P

Then I added a few slices of a ginormous banana pepper I grew in my backyard garden:

I put the tuna salad atop a Light Flat-out Italian wrap with 1 cup of spinach:

Then I wrapped everything up burrito-style and grilled on the george foreman grill for about 5 minutes:

I’m hoping to try out a new recipe for dinner tonight.. I have a few ideas in mind.  Maybe a nap will help things come to fruition 🙂
