Southern Feast

April 13, 2011

I continued my productivity into the morning and i cleaned my shower before going to work. I like to clean my shower while I’m already getting in there to shower. Weird? Makes it easier I think.

My legs are super sore today from the running, weights, pilates and spinning this week. I am really hitting all my workouts this week. Recently I’ve had to modify my schedule and not do it all.

This morning I decided I needed the muscle healing protein of eggs. I had a smart ones egg mcmuffin knock off with a packet of ketchup on top. Slightly rubbery but good in a pinch.


Morning snack was a nectarine I bought yesterday at the produce stand. And a few cocoa roast almonds.


Lunch was a sesame chicken lean cuisine. Another favorite. The only problem with this one is that it seems very small. I have to cut up the chicken to drag out the eating process a bit.


Out of the microwave:


My prep:


I have been kind if hungry all day. For my snack I had my last white cheddar rice cake, some grapes (there weren’t many left) and some nuts.


Vita in a meeting.


Fitness: usual wed. Taught my kickboxing class with extremely sore legs (I think from my Jackie Warner workout on Monday).

Dinner was a new concoction Parmesan/old bay/corn flake Crusted Tilapia and inspired my southern feast.


I mixed together the parm, old bay seasoning, and crushed corn flakes and dipped the tilapia in skim milk and then into the mixture. I baked at 475 for 10 mins. For sides I did canned collard greens, super market mashed potatoes and crusty ciabatta bread (had half with spray butter).


This was delicious!! The fish turned out flakey and tasty. The only change I would have made is not used Parmesan because you couldn’t really taste it.


This was also the first time I ever had collard greens. I bought canned Glory brand that were preseasoned and they were so flavorful! They tasted slightly like hame, had a little spice, solo good. They paired great with my faux fried fish and mashed potatoes.


The potatoes I bought are the ones near the chicken in the supermarket. I am nt sure the brand but the country mash are delicious without a ton of added fat.


Great dinner!

Dessert:


I’m finally full.

Moshulu

April 11, 2011

So this weekend was much more relaxing then the last one of staying up until 5am and boozing. Not that I didn’t enjoy that but it’s always nice to not be hungover some weekend mornings.

Saturday (fitness) I woke up and did a take 2 on the trail run that was interrupted by my stomach ache on Thursday. I did 4 miles and averaged about a 9 min mile. it was a gorgeous day and I was glad to start it running outside.

Here are some eats from the weekend. I was pretty good about snapping photos.

Prerun: I had a fiber one that I forgot to snap a pic of.

Post run light brunch (bread and fresh mozz) at Agiato Bread Co in Manayunk:


I also had quite a few sips of Dan’s beer. Never heard of this brewery but this was really good. Hoppy but not too hoppy for me.


Coffee light frappuccino with extra coffee and half a rice krispie treat (not as good as they look! Too hard).


Special dinner at the Moshulu pre Mary Poppins… Aka we’re on a boat.


I had the most amazing scallops, lots of the delicious warm crusty bread, and tastes of all the sides.


Espresso with frangelico…mmmm


After dinner Sweet Endings yogurt:


Sunday was used for running some errands and lazily lying around.

Breakfast at Ruby’s. They had turkey sausage!


I made spaghetti and meatballs.


Later Lauren and I took a stroll for dessert and wound up with these cupcakes from LeBus split. Mmmmmm icing.
