There’s no better way to start my Saturday morning than with a little action in the kitchen.
And boy was she right! I have not been able to stop snacking on this since I made it. I love the subtle pumpkin flavor and the fact there isn’t any oil in it. I will definitely be making more!
I am really picky about my almonds. I don’t care for raw almonds that aren’t roasted because they aren’t crunchy enough for me. These Planters almonds are the best I’ve found–roasted, crunchy, and not covered in salt—only 40 mg of sodium per serving.
I then ventured out for a nice 6 mile run in the sunshine.
After getting back, I made myself a protein recovery smoothie.
Mixed Berry Protein Smoothie
2 handfuls frozen berries
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1/2 frozen banana
Almond Crunch Granola
I spent a good amount of time foam rolling and using The Stick afterward because I’ve found this really aids in my recovery.
After showering and getting ready, I was really craving some veggies but we were kind of lacking in that department at home, so I suggested to Craig we go to Subway because I had a gift card from Christmas!
I had a Subway Club topped with all the veggies (except jalapenos) and honey mustard.
After Subway, we headed to Fred Meyer for a some grocery shopping . . . . and then Craig spotted them: Girl Scout cookies.
I told him he could go and buy some, but I didn’t think he would come back with 3 boxes!!
I, of course, had to have one!
After Fred Meyer, we went to Costco, and then finally Natural Pantry.
Natural Pantry has a lot of specialty foods the other grocery stores in town don’t carry, but the prices are pretty steep! I really wanted to try Barney Butter, but I just couldn’t fork over $12 for a small jar of it!!
Craig and I had so much fun with our homemade pizza + movie ‘date-night-in’ last weekend, we decided to do that again this weekend!
I made the dough on Friday night, and then a couple hours before we were going to make our pizzas on Saturday, I pulled the dough out of the fridge to bring it to room-temperature. I have found this really makes a difference when you are trying to shape the dough.
I used the same toppings I did last weekend:
- dough (KG’s Homemade Pizza Dough)
- organic extra virgin olive oil
- Muir Glen Organic Pizza Sauce
- seasonings: pepper, garlic powder, oregano, basil
- fresh baby spinach
- organic fresh basil
- sliced tomatoes
So incredibly delicious!
After devouring our pizza, we watched The Social Network—once again courtesy of the Redbox.
I actually went to bed before the end because I was falling asleep—10:30 p.m. is too late for this grandma.
Enjoy your Sunday!
