I’m back in Chapel Hill and working to get caught up on all the class-related stuff I missed this week while I was in DC with my family. Lots of recorded lectures to listen to and an assignment due tomorrow! After class this morning, I came home to make an early lunch.
Earlier this week, I whipped up a Middle Eastern-inspired barley salad with white beans, raisins, pine nuts, green pepper, and various spices, so I had the last serving of that today. It’s delicious — recipe coming next week!
It’s especially yummy topped with plain Greek yogurt
On the side, I had a massaged kale salad. I LOVE massaged kale salads — you literally just drizzle on some olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper, and massage it into the leaves by hand. Takes out the bitterness!
I threw some mushrooms and avocado on top, too.
To drink, I had my favorite enormous plastic sorority cup, which I now fill with water instead of beer. Oh, how the mighty have fallen
I pretty much take this cup all around the house with me, at all times. I <3 water.
Dessert was some refreshing sliced grapefruit.
Time to get down to work with all this catching up I have to do! And tonight I’m going to a fun blog and yoga-related event in Raleigh — stay tuned to see what it is
Do you carry water around with you, too? When I’m out and about, I always have a reusable water bottle in my purse or backpack, and when I’m at home, various glasses of water follow me around the house It’s become habit! Matt always makes fun of me because I’m constantly sipping water. He’ll take one enormous glass every few hours and pound it; I’m the opposite — sip, sip, sip… just a little at a time Writing this post, I’ve probably taken like 20 sips of water, lol.
Have a good one, friends!
