Man, this sure feels like a long week. Coming back from vacation can be tough. I fuelled up for the day with a nutrient packed pancake breakfast! I added a packet of Amazing Grass to the mixture for an extra kick;
Once on the plate they got coated with a layer of Crofter’s South America Superfruit jam. The perfect syrup substitute! The base of fruit in this particular jam is maqui & passion fruit blended with morello cherries and red grapes.

I was happy at the end of the work day because I finished up the first leg of a big project that was waiting for me on my desk Tuesday morning. I snacked on this container of grapes & watermelon all day;
And just before going to the gym I ate pat of this Clif Mountain Mix Mojo bar.
I liked this bar so much that I bought a box of them in Michigan last weekend! The other bit was enjoyed in the afternoon.
My run was a toughie today! My legs were feeling the burn, I tell ya! I ran 4 miles in just under 38 minutes and then walked until the 45 minute mark. I also did some stretching before and after.

Lunch was a bit of a mixed bag. I brought some more Can’t Believe It’s Not Potato Salad ;
There’s another hiding under there, I swear!!! :D
I saw a recipe for broccoli dip at Itzy’s Kitchen that I had all the ingredients for, so I whipped some up when I got home. I followed what Erica did, but I had no salsa and I used parsley instead of cilantro.
For the main part of my dinner I thoroughly enjoyed a vegetarian Portobello Swiss burger on an Arnold thin with Sabra jalapeno hummus, pepper jack cheese, chipotle mustard, ketchup, lettuce & pickles.
Holy Hannah….I did not want this burger to end! It was insanely good! I had cut up a cantaloupe and washed up some grapes for the dinner table as well, but I was too stuffed to eat any of it. I saved what was left for my lunch tomorrow.
DS and I took K.C. for a walk as soon as we were done eating because I knew that once I sat down, I wouldn’t be getting back up! I’m pretty beat out. The weekend can’t come soon enough for this Chiquita! I’ll be putting my lunch together very soon and then sitting down with my Clean Eating mag. I plan on hitting the hay no later than 10pm tonight. Zzzzzzz……
Bye for now!!
