The first time I had to go to traffic school, I actually had to go to a real school and sit in a classroom for half a day. Now, I get to do it onlineâ€¦ but it was still boring. :( And itâ€™s not going to be over for another hour or so, but at least I can do it in the comfort of my own home. (I got into an accident and am avoiding points on my license.)
Post-run snacks include Caramel Oikos, which is growing on me!
And my traffic school snacks included Stacyâ€™s pita chips and salsa.
Andâ€¦. an orange! That 10.0 mile run made me snacky.
Dinner was really good. When I became a vegetarian, one thing I struggled with was alternatives to deli meat or meat-based sandwiches. Iâ€™ve discovered there are so many fun vegetarian alternatives that doesnâ€™t involve tofu or soy productsâ€¦ like mashed sweet potato, black beans, and hot sauce.
Other fun non-tofu alternatives to deli meat:
- Nut Butters
- Melted cheese
- Grilled veggies
- Cranberry sauce and mozzarella cheese
I had my sammie with sugar snap peas:
And I made a fun fruit smoothie (no spinach, for once!). It was based on Kristenâ€™s Raw Cherry Chocolate Bomb Shake.
Mine contained 1 cup vanilla rice milk, 15 frozen cherries, 1 banana, and 1 scoop of Nesquik. Perhaps not quite as healthy as Kristenâ€™s version, but still delicious!
Iâ€™m munching on a few squares of dark chocolate and watching Gossip Girl with the Husband.

Random question: If you could have any other name, what would it be? I would be Claire! I think Iâ€™m very Claire.
