So last night Jess went to a friend’s house for a bbq with her housemates. They started out with a few appetizers of chips and guac, sausages, and mini spinach phyllo dough pockets. For the main meal she had a cheese burger and fries. Jess topped her burger with a piece of avocado, a tomato and a ketchup smile.
The texture of israeli couscous is really unique. The larger grain makes it more fun to eat!
This morning we woke up with a plan. Earlier in the week we wanted to run the Harvard Stadium but we had held it off. This morning we decided to just suck it up and conquer the steps. We ran all 37 sections of the stadium and were pooped! Our legs were jelly by the time we finished it, but we still decided to bike for a bit and then lift. It was definitely a good workout!
After the tough workout we came back to Jess’ to make breakfast. Before starting breakfast we had to make a quick pit stop at Dunkin Donuts for iced coffee. Less likes to drink hers black and Jess always adds milk and splenda. Once we got back, we started cooking! Jess put together a bowl of oatmeal topped with white peach (yum), banana, blueberries and strawberries. In the center of the fruit circle she added a bit of brown sugar and poured a bit of unsweetened vanilla almond milk in for extra flavor. Less had a piece of toast topped with banana and almond butter with a SIAB (Smoothie in a bowl, another meal inspired by Kath!). In the smoothie she combined peach, banana, frozen berries, almond milk and a spoonful of hemp chocolate protein powder.
It is really important to properly refuel after a hard workout. We would like to believe that we did a pretty good job refueling with these breakfast choices :).
Have you ever tried to run a stadium?
