Worshiping Celery

If you haven’t checked out my running post yet, please take moment when you get a chance a give me some advice! Thanks!

I spent part of the day on Friday worshiping celery.

You guys can relate, right? This is completely normal, isn’t it?

I started Friday off with level 2 of the 30 day shred and died on my floor felt amazing afterward!

I crawled to my kitchen and made some broccoli scrambled eggs before class.

Then it was off to class to have my mind warped and flipped upside down. Uncommon Grounds followed shortly after but I forgot my camera at home so no picture for you.

Lucky for you, I took a picture of my afternoon snack before I left my apartment:

I bet you feel much better now. I know you were freaking out that I didn’t capture my Vanilla Soy Iced Coffee on film. I had them put it in my new Uncommon Ground travel mug and felt very cool walking around with it. Wouldn’t you?

Jeff bribed me with a trip to the co-op if I stayed on campus and waited for him to get out of class. Of course, I agreed. Can’t pass up the co-op. Especially when they sell organic celery which clearly needs an owner to worship it.

Picked up a Sweet Potato & Cranberry Salad from the deli’s salad and sandwich case.

I stole Jeff’s phone to take a picture because you clearly need to see this salad.  It contained: sweet potatoes, red bell peppers, organic parsley, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, organic celery(!!!), organic scallions, toasted pinenuts, olive oil, red wine vinegar, local honey,  and stoneground mustard. I ate the whole container because it was delicious and I was starving. 🙂

I also tried this baby out:

YUCK! This sounds good in theory but it was way too sweet. Main ingredients included Sparkling Filtered Water, Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, and Organic Fair Trade Certified Green Tea. I ended up tossing most of it.

When we got home, I snacked on some grapes

And made Sweet Potato Towers

Again, totally normal, right?

Coated in Canola Oil, Sea Salt, Pinch of Paprika, Sprinke of Cinnamon on 450 degrees for 20 minutes (flipping once)

Jeff was in charge of the cheesy broccoli. (That’s sweet potatoes and broccoli twice in one day- amazinggg)

The black bean burgers just appeared on our plates. I don’t know where they came from.

On an Arnold Sandwich Thin topped with romaine, tomatoes, green peppers, Sabra Chipotle Hummus, and Frank’s Red Hot.

Twas an awesome Friday night dinner.

Then came this:

Tazo Tea and a Dark Chocolate Covered Pretzel from the co-op which I munched on while watching Food, Inc with Jeff. (I bought it a couple days ago). The movie upset me when I saw it in theaters over the summer but it actually made me cry this time. It also reinforced all of the reasons I want to be a vegetarian. I’m not going to say for sure until March but I am pretty sure I’m staying vegetarian way past February!

Late night snack was one of these bad boys:

I RAN this morning at the gym!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I did a run/walk interval on the treadmill for about 50 minutes (3.5 miles). I ran more than half of it.

Came home and drank half of this:

Mixed feelings. Can anyone suggest a different one?

Overly ripe banana oats were on the menu for breakfast this morning

Insanely sweet and so amazing. Topped with cinnamon and a spoonful of Monkey Boy PB (banana raisin PB)

Well, that’s all folks!

Tonight Jeff and I are going out with our friends Jess and Seth to a mostly vegetarian restaurant called Moon & River Cafe. They have live music after 8pm. Then we’re all getting up early tomorrow and venturing north to watch a sheep shearing at a local farm. Should be a fun time!

What do you have planned for the weekend?

Have a great Saturday blogfaces! <3

  1. I wish our coop had good foods like that. I love to go in there and look around though.

    And good job with starting with intervals.

    Remember not to increase your speed and distance at the same time. I did that and got tendonitis in my hip. And always stretch after you run. It will prevent injuries.

  2. Please please tell me you tried the chocolate heart thrive warmed in the micro. OMFG best thing ever!! And I love celery too, no worries 😉
