Thanks for the excitement and tips related to signing up for my first triathlon! I’m pumped for this new adventure and excited for you all to follow along with my training :) I’ll definitely be hitting up a tri store soon to try on some trisuits and trishorts, too. I’ll let you know what I end up with, of course!
Switching gears, I have to share this delicious dinner that Matt made for us on Sunday night:
Mmmmmm it was SO good! The star was the parmesan and spice encrusted chicken:
He took raw chicken tenders, rubbed a little olive oil, paprika, cumin, and red pepper into them, and then rolled them around in some grated parmesan cheese before pan searing them in a little more olive oil! Best idea ever.
It had such a yummy flavor!
He served the chicken atop a bed of sautÃ©ed spinach and pine nuts (simply sautÃ©ed with some olive oil, minced garlic, and a little rosemary) — also delicious!
Also featured was leftover red beans and rice from the other night:
Best dinner ever :)
We had a good amount of chicken left over since he made the whole package, so for lunch yesterday I threw together a tasty wrap with the chicken:
Yum! The wrap included chicken, fresh mushrooms and tomato, avocado, and baby spinach. No sauce required since the chicken was so flavor packed :)
On a related note, I’m incapable of making a wrap that isn’t stuffed so full it can’t close. This was SO messy to eat, ha. I would be a horrible Chipotle employee.
Aaaaanyway — I enjoyed a Stonyfield Oikos “super fruits” Greek yogurt on the side as well. This is their newest flavor! I wanted to try it so badly and I couldn’t find any near me so they were nice enough to send me some :) It’s delicious! Matt’s a big fan, too. If you haven’t been able to get into Greek yogurt yet, this flavor would be a good one to try — it’s a little more liquid-y like a regular yogurt, but still tangy like Greek yogurt :)
Have you tried this new Oikos flavor yet? What’d you think?
I’m off to school! Busy day ahead with lots of group project meetings — grad school LOVES group projects, apparently. Have a good one!
Oh and p.s. — If you’re in Chapel Hill, the amazing Franklin Street Yoga (my favorite yoga studio here in Chapel Hill) is having a $29 for one month unlimited yoga deal right now — click here to check out details! I just bought one — so pumped.
