The Storm Clouds, They Are A’Brewin’

Had a pretty grouchy day –Β  The Huz was stuck waiting for a parking space for over three hours last night so I didn’t get to see him last night (or this morning since I came into the office early) and I need my husband fix! 😦

Here’s a quick recap of yesterday’s food:


2 Super Tasty Flax Wrap! *1 flax wrap spread with hummus, sliced grape tomatoes, alfalfa and broccoli sprouts, sliced yellow pepper and about 1/2 of an avocado. This was an entire meal of foods I didn’t like a year ago – change is possible, folks!!

4 Clif ZBar, Tazo Zen tea

8 Shiritake marinara – I took your suggestions and made a very tasty dish for myself! I prepped the noodles (didn’t notice a smell, but I rinsed the noodles, nuked ’emΒ for 2 minutes and patted them dry – and didn’t inhale near them the whole time), then sauteed the veggies in some olive oil. When they were soft, I added the marinara sauce and noodles and allowed everything to simmer for about 5 minutes. It was delicious and I ate the entire thing!!

Shiritaki Marinara with Vegetables

1 package anagel hair-shaped shiritaki noodles, rinsed and patted dry
1 yellow squash, sliced in 1/4″ rounds
1/2 yellow bell pepper, chopped
handful of grape tomatoes
1 clove garlic
8-10 leaves fresh basil, chopped

Serves 1 hungry Katherine!

After dinner, I made a new batch of Coco Choco Bars (recipe to come tonight, hopefully!) and I snacked on a handful of chocolate chips and some dried cherries while I prepped everything. Topped the night off with a piece of almond glaze and felt very satisfied πŸ™‚

Walked home from work, in spite of the rain, so got my 4 miles total.

Ran with Bodhi after work, approximately 3.5 miles. We ran along the East River Promenade, but I didn’t want to run into the sketchy, less populated parts so I circled back and forth when I saw people coming and tailed them until I got tired. It wasn’t really a well organized run, but it felt good to get out and just jog around without worrying about speed or exact distance. Sometimes I’m glad I don’t have a GarminΒ or Tech4O. (Don’t get me wrong though, I’d LOVE ONE, but my bank account wouldn’t really appreciate the sucker punch!)


Even though I’m in a pretty lousy mood, I do have things that make me happy. For example, today is Jenna’s birthday! And Angela’s Shop 4 A Cause event is finally here! Be sure to stop by both of the blogs today πŸ™‚

    I’m loving that Marinara dish! Wow, what a great way to use all your foods. YUMMY!


  3. I LOVE pasta so I can’t give it up! But I’ve heard other bloggers say that spaghetti squash is a great alternative and much tastier than Shirataki. Plus, I love my food to smell good πŸ™‚
