Breakfast: A cup o’ tea and a toasted onion bagel with two generous tablespoons of creamy peanut butter. I almost never eat bagels anymore, but I do love them, and when I saw the rows and rows of bagels (cranberry, chocolate chip, jalapeno, honey oat, you name it) staring at me from behind a glass case at Central Market, I had to take a couple home. I adore the onion & peanut butter combination. This stems from the days back at home when my Dad would buy the Blue Light Special onion bagels at Super K-Mart and would slather them with crunchy peanut butter. It’s a weird combo, but my tastebuds are in love.

Yesterday recap:
Lunch: Half of a leftover brie & smoked turkey sandwich, half a cup of chicken tortilla soup, a side of butter & sugar sweet potatoes.
Snack: Apple slices topped with creamy peanut butter and raisins.

Dinner: Half of a pork fajita burrito and chips and salsa at Chipotle
Dessert: Candied pecans and half of a chocolate wafer; tea

Nothing since Wednesday (I’m counting moving day as a day of mega fitness)….I plan to go on a run today in the new ‘hood! The big idea was to go for a run this morning, but I just got so into unpacking…aiming for the afternoon now.

Green heart:
Makes my heart flutter: Chipotle shares not only our food philosophy but also a love for Mother Earth. I snapped this photo, although my operation was soon shutdown by an off-duty employee….”Chipotle doesn’t want to have pictures all over the place.” Whatever, man. It’s called free publicity! Don’t you know I have thousands following this blog? Well, maybe it’s more like four people, but whatevs….I still love you, Chipotle.

A cold front blew in this afternoon. Chilly & windy! It made for a nice run home, and the electric gray-blue sky served as a beautiful backdrop. There’s nothing like the colors of the sky of a cold front. Powerful.

Afternoon snack: Slice of banana bread and a cup of mate cocido
Dinner: 1/2 of a mega chicken burrito (with black beans, cilantro lime rice, mild tomato salsa, cheese) from Chipotle, which serves “food with integrity;” our kind of food! We used our coupon…what a value! Two meals in one. Of course I could have eaten the entire burrito, but I wanted to have something left for lunch tomorrow.
Dessert: Today has literally been banana bread, morning, noon, and night! I can’t get enough–it’s dangerous to have around!

Healthy Banana Bread Recipe: (trust me, the ingredients do not compromise the taste; I think they make it even tastier)

Dry Ingredients
-1 and 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
-1/4 cup oat bran
-1/4 t salt
-1/2 t baking soda
-1 t baking powder
-1 t cinnamon

Wet Ingredients
-1 egg
-1/4 cup olive oil
-1/2 cup honey
-1 t vanilla
-2 bananas (the riper, the better. If the peel is black, that’s the best!)

1) Mix dry ingredients in medium size bowl.
2) Beat egg in a medium size bowl. Add wet ingredients. Mix well.
3) Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients. Stir until combined.
4) Pour into a loaf pan (or any pan is fine–we’ve used springform before)
5) Bake in a preheated oven at 325 for 50-60 minutes.

Makes 1 fabulicious loaf.

Kind of catatonic

Breakfast: Freshly-juiced carrots, apple, celery, oranges, and ginger. Lucas made it and brought it to me while I was still in bed. So sweet!
Dinner last night: Take out. Chicken fajita burrito from ZuZu’s. We had a buy one, get one free coupon, so you know–it was a must. The ingredients didn’t look that fresh and the taste was kind of bland, but that didn’t keep me from eating the WHOLE thing. And that’s a BIG burrito.

Dessert: Cup of Fage greek yogurt with agave nectar and carob chips AND a cup of hot chocolate (unsweetened cocoa powder, sugar, and whole milk).

We watched Julie & Julia last night. I had seen it before, but Lucas hadn’t. Really makes me want to visit Paris and eat amazing food.
