Topping my list of things I’m most excited about for fall would be honeycrisp apples. And I know I’m a food blogging cliché, but I’m ok with that. Honeycrisp apples dipped in almond butter. Nowwww we’re talking. As you can see, my neighborhood is looking pretty green and the temperatures are in the high 90′s. Hard to feel like fall when that’s the case! Soon enough.
It was time to get stocked up on the essentials at Whole Foods. And since it was a lazy Sunday, I enjoyed strolling each aisle and deciding to try some new things. I took a long time finding a cereal with low sugar and high fiber. These wheat squares have 0 sugar, and this morning I paired it with almond milk, sliced bananas and strawberries. It needed a little sweetening.
One of my other “new” items was this Elmo soup. Laugh it up, go ahead. But there’s nothing more comforting than a bowl of alphabet soup on a cool day. I’m waiting for that cool day to comfort myself but I seriously looked everywhere for alphabet soup. (I am 2 years old). It was on the bottom shelf. Perfect reach! For a 2 year old.
This combo sounded incredible..and it was. I don’t feel an ounce of bad about myself when I eat a square of dark chocolate. I read about food bloggers trying to fight chocolate cravings, but why not give in? There are worse things!! (like ice cream…that happened on Friday…and Saturday).
This is the most exciting product I picked up yesterday. I was so excited to see that my favorite kombucha (brewed in Austin, Texas!) Buddha’s Brew is now sold at my Whole Foods on Lemmon! I got 2 bottles of honeydew and let me tell you this kombucha is a TREAT.
For all you kombucha skeptics, you could hardly taste the vinegar aspect and you certainly didn’t notice any of those “cultured strands” you may be afraid of. It’s very sweet and tastes divine. My only problem with this particular flavor is that they added organic cane juice. I’d rather just have the kombucha + real fruit juice. But it’s so tasty, I don’t mind too much.
And to catch you up on my training:
Friday: Rest Day
Saturday: Ran 7 miles in 1:12!!! I was so proud of myself and I definitely felt it in my knees and ankles later that night.
Sunday: Rest Day
Today: I will be running 3 miles…most likely on the treadmill since it’s blazing hot out
