I have to be honest when I say I don’t blog every little thing I eat. On any given day I probably blog about 90% of what actually goes in my mouth.
The other 10% comes from the quick bite – usually 1/2 a z-bar – I have each morning before I run or work out and the nibbles of grapes I have when standing in front of my fridge.
(I know, I really need to clean the bottom of my fridge!)
Grapes are dangerous in my house. I can happily over look the chocolate, cookies, cheese and crackers that are within easy reach, but for some reason grapes get me every time. I often take a couple at a time with out even thinking about it and will easily go through a whole bag of grapes on my own in a week! In fact given the opportunity I could eat a whole bag on my own in no problem.
This morning I decided instead of just randomly grabbing grapes throughout my day, that I would pack them for my snack. Of course that won’t stop me on sneaking a few this afternoon. 😉
I had a generous handful of grapes with a smaller handful of Kashi Go Lean.
The grapes were refreshing and hydrating. I know if I were at home I would have happily gone back for tons more. In fact I may have more when I do get home. 🙂
Lunch was refreshing and hydrating as well. The perfect meal on a hot sunny day.
Last night I combined
- Shredded Zucchini
- Shredded Yellow Squash
- Shredded Carrot
- Shredded Coconut
- Cubed Tofu
I tossed it all with a dressing I made of Vinegar, Honey and EVOO.
The end results were very tasty, but lacking something that I could not put my finger on. I added more honey, but that didn’t help as much as I thought it would. My favorite bites were ones with raisins so maybe it just needed more raisins? Any ideas?
With my make shift salad I had a serving of Whole Wheat Pita Chips.
Last night I also made a batch of Tina’s No Bake Peanut Butter Balls.
I followed her directions to the t and put them in the fridge over night. I had one before my run this morning and another after lunch.
All that was missing was a nice coating of dark chocolate! Yum!
I think if I were to make these again I would add a tad more oats and less agave nectar. Don’t get me wrong they came out great, I just prefer less sweetness. The rest will make great pre-run snacks for the week.
