Icing helps SO much for soreness… I would love to do an ice bath, but that would involve 1) scrubbing my bath tub and 2) sitting in a bunch of ice, which sounds miserable.
Icing down with cubes in Ziploc bags might not be AS effective, but it’s so much more comfortable!
While I iced, I had Pita chips and salsa (counts as a vegetable!):
And dinner was easy-easy. I didn’t feel up for cooking so I dragged two stuffed pastas from the fridge.
A lot of people ask how I cook for the Husband, especially because he’s a vegetarian. I do most of the cooking in our house, and he’s a fun person to cook for because he’s down to eat pretty much whatever. He eats tofu, beans, fake meat, veggies… everything I eat.
I usually make him whatever I make myself, but just a LOT bigger portion. That man puts down a tons of food! He eats like a growing 16 year old boy.
Each pasta box has “about” 2 servings, but the servings are clearly sized to be a side dish. I made both so the Husband and I would both have enough to eat.
I had about 1.75 servings of pasta with steamed asparagus on top.
I liked this brand’s stuffed butternut squash, but this flavor was very, very disappointing. Don’t buy it! Bletch. I still ate it because I was hangry from all that trail running. 🙂
I had a spinach salad with sprouts, cucumber, and tomatoes on the side.
I also drank 1/2 a beer while cooking. I fully intended to drink it all, but I just wasn’t feeling it. :) I switched to herbal tea.
Now I’m watching awesome television programs like Sixteen and Pregnant and Too Young to Kill: Teenager Murders. Oh, Saturday nights.
Do you cook for your significant other, family, or roommate? Do they eat whatever you prepare or do you navigate picky eaters? I bet I end up having the PICKIEST kids – isn’t that how it always works?!
