31 Days, Days 13-25
Breakfast (6:30 a.m.): Special K low fat granola with Almond milk (haven't has "cereal in years so this was a treat, and the cereal is McDougall compliant-only granola I could find with no added oils).
Lunch (12:00 p.m.): Pad Thai. Homemade. Recipe was totally made up so here it is generally- whole wheat fettuccine actually located in the Asian foods section specifically marked for Pad Thai, 1/2 cup Smucker's All-natural peanut butter, 1/4 cup Jumex coconut water to thin the peanut butter, crushed red pepper flakes, cumin, chili powder.
Dinner (5:00 p.m.): Tortilla soup (finishing up the remnants from the batch from the other day).
I went to the greater Atlanta Metroplex for the past nearly 2 weeks. Since I am so far behind on posting, a recap would be nearly impossible. I will sat I ate several meals at Moe's Burritos and enjoyed them immensely, as well as the Subway Veggie Delight sandwiches. Had a few pleasant surprises with restaurants serving up a good vegan dish here and there. Also, did a lot of baked sweet potatoes and roasted veggies. Faux fried eggplant turned out pretty good (thin sliced eggplant soaked in almond milk and crusted with cornmeal then baked).
Due to my extreme failure to remain consistent in the posting (which I rather suspected I might with the vacation and all) I will be reverting to the normal path of the blog and sharing my adventures through life and what God and the bible are showing me. I will still post an occasional recipe or two when I find something that is worthy of sharing. I will also be starting back to running next week so will share the joys and pains of trying to get back to where I want to be.
My (x) wife and I ran a 5k while I was visiting. It was a small run sponsored by a local church. With no recent training (for me) it was not a fun race, though I always enjoy the social aspect of races and the chance to talk to and encourage runners as we go. While the end result was by no means a "good" time, it is my current Personal Record (PR) since it is my first 'officially' timed 5k race. I will be looking for more o these in the future and hope to get to a decent time soon.
