A few weeks ago, I went to a little place called Providence Cafe and had an amazing asparagus and tomato salad. Iâ€™ve been thinking about that delicious meal ever since!
â€¦ And decided to recreate it tonight for dinner.
In the mix:
- Baked asparagus
- Toasted pecans
- Raw tomatoes
- Raw red onions
- Feta cheese
- Balsamic reduction
I love summer salads with fresh ingredients!
And I am obsessed with balsamic reduction (itâ€™s easy to make: just boil balsamic vinegar until it begins thick and lovely):
On the side, I had a four small slices of olive bread â€“ I was hangry after that 10 miler!
Dessert was mini ice cream sandwiches:
Earlier this afternoon, I dragged my booty to Power Mixed yoga. It felt so great to stretch out my legs after my long run.
Iâ€™m REALLY trying to incorporate more yoga into my daily life. I think practicing on a regular basis will help my marathon training tremendously. And Iâ€™m really starting to love the new studio that Iâ€™m going to.
Pre-yoga snacks included an orange:
And animal crackers:
After all of my activity today, Iâ€™m enjoying being la-azy on the couch (and Iâ€™m gnawing on my animal crackers). Having a holiday tomorrow is exciting! I definitely want to spend more time outside.
