Lots of veggies in my life this week! Salads, sandwiches, roasted, baked…you name it!

A salad for lunch: mixed greens, bell pepper, cucumber, red onion, corn (frozen…thawed by lunch!), carrots, and goat cheese!IMG_7870
These greenies were transformed into Kale Chips!


and a super hummus veggie sandwich!

  • lemon hummus
  • avocado
  • tomato
  • mixed greens
  • orange bell pepper
  • carrots
  • pickles
  • sriracha!

SOO GOOD! I had many versions of this sandwich for lunches this week :)

Look at this MINI bell peppers I found at TJ’s!! They look like hot peppers but they are just miniature sweet bell peppers…about as long as a finger. SO CUTE!


I roasted them up tonight… so sweet and a delicious roasted flavor.
I’ve been varying my coffee this week. Some days I’ll brew with the coffee maker, another with the French Press

and of course a foamy cappuccino!

Obviously I’ve eaten more than veggies this week but those are the ones I wanted to share :)

I also made a batch of Ellie Krieger’s Cherry Walnut Bars! My old roommate used to make these once in a while and I haven’t had them since then :( I was CRAVING these babies!

Dry ingredients:


chopped cherries:

Batter! Mmm looks like oatmeal.IMG_7888



Apricot preserves heated to glaze:

All glazed up!


Work It Out

Ok, so today is the first day my foot has noticeably felt better…so annoying.

Monday: Body Combat: I took it easy with the foot work, luckily there isn’t much, so I still got a great workout.

Tuesday: I would of gone to dance class but I decided to take it easy because dance is very “foot” intensive and I basically wear bare feet so there’s no support.

Wednesday: Normal day off because of a class for work

Thursday (tonight!): Still trying to not push the foot so I did 15min on the bike, and then BODY PUMP!! Whoa man! My arms and thighs are SO worn out. Such a great all over strength workout…I’ll be feeling this tomorrow.

Weekend: I want to get in Hot Yoga, and an easy run/walk. I’ve read a lot about Plantar Fasciitis this week and I think with lots of stretching, adding heel/arch inserts, and icing…I should be able to keep this under control.

I think it was partly because my run last weekend was a big increase in mileage for me, and I am not great with stretching before runs…lesson learned.

  4. I love veggie sandwiches! My favorite additions are avocado or marinated mushrooms -- they add some "meat" to them! Glad your foot is feeling a little better.
