My friend Jillian and I had a great 5.6 mile run this morning — our last track workout before the D.C. National half marathon in a week and a half! More details on our workout to come :)
But for now, I just packed up lunch and am getting reading to head off to school!
Leftovers are the best type of lunches — they literally take 5 seconds to pack up. I packed up the second half of my “Cheesy” Vegan Coconut SautÃ©ed Chickpeas & Kale:
I also threw in a few baby carrots to munch on, and put the chickpea/kale mixture on top of some fresh mushrooms and spinach, just to mix things up. I’ll heat it all (minus the carrots) before I eat it!
To enjoy with my lunch (I always like ending lunch with something sweet and juicy!), I packed a kiwi:
And for afternoon snacks I threw in a Chobani Pineapple Greek yogurt:
And one of my homemade 5 minute no bake PB granola bars!
I whipped up a batch of these yesterday because I have a really busy couple weeks coming up and want to have them on hand for easy grabbing and go-ing :)
And last but not least, some tea! As always, I packed my mug and a couple tea packets to enjoy throughout the day. Just add hot water and a splash of milk :)
In other news, if you’re on Twitter (are you following me?), today at noon EST is our monthly #attune chat! This month’s topic? Your healthy living “a-ha” moment. Come chat with us! :)
The contest will run from March 16th — May 16th. To enter, all you have to do is upload a photo of yourself on your Facebook wall (be sure to tag @Attune Foods) doing something that matters to you with your favorite Attune Foods product in the photo. Their Facebook fans will then vote on the pictures by “liking” them — the four photos with the most “likes” will be contenders for the grand prize, a year’s supply of their favorite Attune Foods’ product! Meghann, Heather, Alisa, and I are the judges who will decide the final winner :) Check out the Attune Facebook page later this afternoon for more details!
Here is my full picture submission for the promo buttons — it got a little cut off in the button above! I’m rocking tree pose from yoga with some Erewhon Crispy Brown Rice Cereal:
Yoga matters to me because it symbolizes making time for myself to be healthy, both mentally AND physically. And tree pose is meaningful because when I first started yoga a few years ago, I could NEVER do tree pose and it drove me crazy. I was so proud of myself when I finally could!
I’m off to school — have a great day and see you on Twitter at noon EST!
