I have a problem. I can’t leave Trader Joe’s without spending $40. I walk in the door with intentions of only purchasing two or three things and end up filling up my whole basket.
And I don’t know how this happens but a full basket magically translates to $40. Take tonight for example, my list included fish, tomatoes, feta and olives.
I left with the items on my list + hummus, pita chips, pretzels, apples, bananas, ciabatta, Larabars, Clif bars, two bottles of wine and dark chocolate with caramel and black sea salt (yes, seriously…I’ll let you know how it is!).
Sigh…I’m hopeless. Trader Joe’s is just too tempting! I want to try everything there!
Does anyone else have a Trader Joe’s problem? What are your favorite things to buy there? My staples include organic apples, hummus, dried fruit, nuts, nut butters, olive oil, wine, frozen fruit, cheeses (especially goat and feta), wine and coffee.
Let’s do something we haven’t done in a couple days…talk about what I’ve been eating and workouts!
This morning started with a quiet ashtanga practice. There is no formal ashtanga class on Thursday mornings, you just show up and practice if you want to. I really needed to be on my mat this morning and was so grateful for the solitude. I’ve been much more in the groove of my practice this week and it’s been wonderful. I think a lot of it has to do with being back in town and back in my routine.
Breakfast was overnight oats at my desk. Especially delicious overnight oats since they were in an almost empty jar of (Trader Joe’s) peanut butter. In the jar…oats, plain Greek yogurt, vanilla soy milk, diced apple, diced banana, dried cranberries and chia seeds. Topped with Crofter’s.
I came home for lunch and made a big salad – mixed greens, mushrooms, avocado, carrots, sprouts, dried cranberries, shredded mozz, almonds and a veggie burger with lemon/honey/dijon vinaigrette.
Guess who ran on the treadmill today?
This girl! I had a few minutes to kill before BodyPump so I hopped on the treadmill and knocked out two miles as quickly as I could. I just turned my music up and kept bumping the pace until I was at 7:30. Before I knew it I was sweaty and it was time to teach. Class was great!
Dinner was a loose take on a dish I’ve blogged about on Bakin’ and Eggs – Sauteed Snapper with Cherry Tomatoes. I seasoned mahi with salt and pepper and sauteed. When the fish was done I transferred it to a plate and sauteed tomatoes, olives, herbs and garlic. I topped the fish with the mixture and crumbled feta on top. Delicious! Roasted broccoli and roasted potatoes on the side.
Sullie says HAPPY FRIDAY! 😀
