    What did you not like about Push? I hate when movies look decent in previews and then the actual movie sucks. :/

      I didn’t like how bad the story line was and all the holes in it. Also they could have done more with the special effects.

    Yeah, I think Bok Choy is pretty limited expect for in stir frys. I would have done the same thing. Well, it does look delcious!!

    Meghann, I have a question for you. I know that you usualy do your workouts in the morning and you usually run (I run every monring too) but I was wondering if you are still doing strength or another cross training after work. I vaugely remember you doing The Shred workouts after you got home from work, but I didn’t know if that was because you were doing the challenge or if you routinely strength train?

    Hope you are well hun!

      Strength training is always my weakness. I SHOULD be doing strength training after work, but I usually don’t. πŸ™ When I was going the shred challenge last time it just happened to fit in my schedule where I was doing the shred after work because I wanted to keep running in the morning. Doing the challenge again I am hoping to work some of the strength training back into to my routine.

    You rocked that marathon, and I loved your video from that race.

    The tofu looks great! I love the star plate. I think everyone should have one of those πŸ™‚

    Thats such a great keep sake! I bet it brought back all of the wonderful (and maybe not so wonderful ;)) memories from the marathon! I have never cooked with bok choy! Let us know if you find any good recipes.

    Mmm, there’s nothing wrong with stirfry… it’s so good!

    Girl Scout Thin Mints are the best, I ate my once a year box entirely too fast!

    I like using bok choy as a wrap type thing… with a spicy peanut dressing.

    I also used to make a sort of Asian version of a tamale with them (I still used corn meal, just used different spices and veggies). Yum.

    At least you had some thin mints to get you through a terrible movie.

    that is all. πŸ˜‰

    Check out this website:

    I think the grilled shrimp satay with peaches and bok choy sounds really good. There are 68 different recipes here though. Epicurious is one of my favorite places to look for recipes. They compile articles from Gourmet and Bon Appetit magazines. Hope this helps!

    that stir fry looks amazing, I havent had tofu in weeks and now I think it needs to happen soon!

    Nothing wrong with a good old stir-fry… who among us would have survived their early 20s without it? πŸ˜‰ Bok choy can also be lovely in an Asian-inspired salad… I like to add water chestnuts, sesame seeds, tofu, and ginger dressing. Yum!

    the stir-fry looks delicious! try making a soup with bok choy next time. and i JUST bought push on pay per view the other day. it was too confusing for me. i had a very hard time following, and ended up not really paying attention to it the longer it went on for, haha.

    have a lovely evening, girl!

    I like to use bok choy with spinach, chard, arugula, and any other dark leafy greens and, and just cook them all up until they’re wilted. They taste amazing altogether!

    I love using bok choy in soups. I made this light and flavorful miso tofu soup with bok choy, shitake mushrooms and edamame a while ago. Here is the link to my recipe: http://runtolive.wordpress.com/2009/06/30/miso-infused-tofu-soup-with-baby-bok-choy-shitake-mushrooms-edamame/

    This bok choy salad is delicious (I like it without dressing, too) and so easy to make:
    Salad: 1 medium head bok choy, diced, 1 bunch green onions, chopped, chow mein noodles, blanched slivered almonds, water chestnuts, mandarin oranges, raisins (for all ingredients – as much as you want)
    Dressing: put in a container with a lid: 1/2 cup olive oil, 1/4 cup white vinegar, 1/3 cup white sugar, 3 tbsp soy sauce. Close lid, shake until well mixed.
    Combine salad ingredients in a salad bowl. Toss with dressing, and serve.

    Use bok choy as a lettuce (raw) in an Asian salad. Add carrots, cabbage, water chestnuts, sprouts, and bamboo shoots with a homeade peanut dressing…Delish!

    My absolute FAVORITE bok choy recipe:
    bok choy, chopped
    1 cucumber, sliced into rounds
    equal parts: (I use 2 Tablespoons each – but you have to see how much vegetables will need) sugar, rice vinegar, soy sauce, salad oil
    crumbled-up Ramen noodles (the best part)
    Enjoy!

    Oh. My.Yum. Thin mints. How Iove thee.

    Strength Training is still something I have to FORCE myself to do, but it really has helped my metabolism. The muscle just burns up waay more extra calories throughout the day, whereas running just burns them in the moment.

    I notice my body bounces back much more quickly after a vacation, holiday, etc. when I have been strength training more. So keep it up girl!
