Are you happy it's Friday? I'm pretty happy it's Friday and with happiness comes smiles- big fat smiles!
It's not only Fridays that make me smile though. There's something else that can break me down, tear me apart, rip away any disguise or poker face I'm trying to pull and initiate a big ol' cheesey grin that simply cannot be hidden. Any guesses? Any at all? No- you're all clueless?
It's food you guys! Gosh I'm good at cryptic clues that leave you scratching your head (the title or the entire genre of my blog were no give away at all ;)
Firstly lets take a time warp back to yesterday, around 12:15pm, the sun is shining, the birds a-chriping, the stomach rumbling, the head full of magical images of different foods dancing and pirouetting through the fantasy land in my brain... Ok, I think I need to draw a line at the extent of the things I reveal about myself on here ;)
So, yesterday- I made a sandwich.
Rephrase; I made the sandwich. One of my all-time favourites (apart from that PB & banana toastie) and this may well have been the best version I've ever made of it.
- Torn up veggie burger
- Char-grilled pumpkin slices
- Sliced tomato (biggest and juiciest tomato!!)
- The rest of the veggie burger
- The rest of the pumpkin
- Grilled mushrooms slices
- Grilled zucchini slices
- Char-grilled capsicum
- And grilled eggplant slices
Now let's take a minute to appreciate this epic-ness of a sanwich:
Something else I've been super excited about, that tastes awesome and brings a smile to my face when I pop it in my mouth? (Phew that was a long sentence, my brain ran out of breath as I typed it!)
This dinner was quickly thrown together and scoffed before running out the door to go and wait on tables for 2 and a half hours (even though I wasn't even that hungry, I knew I had to eat something to keep that friendly waitress smile on my face ;))
And lastly; this morning's breakfast:
- I had just run a fast 7km and was extremely hungry from the early dinner I had last night that was long gone from my stomach's memory of food!
- It tasted sooooo good!
My thick chocolate green smoothie:
1 chopped, frozen banana
1/2 chopped frozen avocado
2 big handfuls spinach
3 scoops greek yoghurt
1 big scoop choc protein powder
a few big dashes of cinnamon
1 tabeslpoon crunchy peanut butter
1 handful rolled oats
1/2 cup almond milk
All whazzed up until smooth (and suuuuper thick!)
3 minutes later:
Well, I've babbled on for a lot longer than I intended! I guess I just have a lot of passion for the topics I write about (ie. FOOD!) :)
What would be in your ultimate grilled sandwich?
Have you ever tried chestnuts? Do you like them?
Do you have a pre-running/ workout snack if it's more of a speed/ shorter workout? I don't usually but sometimes I feel pretty faint at the end!
That's all from me today folks- have a fabulous Friday (almost weekend!) eat something amazing- go on do it! Tell someone you love them :) Bye!1 :D
