So far my weekend has played out exactly how I wanted it to. A good mix of fun while still getting things done. Last night after I closed the gym I met two girlfriends for a glass of wine. I arrived home at 9:45 famished.
It was tempting to stop and grab something on the way home but I was determined to stick to my clean eating and knew I had many dinner options at home. In about 15 minutes the following was ready – sautéed brussels sprouts, microwaved sweet potato and a Trader Joe’s turkey burger that I cooked quickly in the skillet.
I was absolutely exhausted from the week and after dinner I crashed hard. A good night’s sleep was all I needed to get me back to normal. I was up and ready to take a yoga class at 7:30 a.m. 90 minutes and lots of sweat later, it was time for breakfast.
TJ’s plain goat milk yogurt, diced banana, Hungry & Co.’s Hungrynola, chia seeds and sunflower seed butter. And then it was farmers market time!
I ventured out to the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market today and got some amazing deals. I was so excited to see North Carolina strawberries and picked up a beautiful and sweet quart of them.
I also bought basil and parsley for my herb garden. My rosemary, oregano and thyme all survived the winter.
Here’s a look at the final haul. Believe it or not, I got all of this for $18.
– Baby eggplant
– Rainbow Swiss chard
– Potted basil
– Potted parsley
– Free-range eggs
One of my favorite Saturday activities is going to the farmers market. I love supporting local businesses and farmers and the values are incredible.
Do you frequent the farmers market? What are your favorite things to get?
It was a gorgeous day so I ran a few miles when I got home and then made lunch. I sautéed spinach, cherry tomatoes and a portobello mushroom with some olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I served them open faced with hummus and goat cheddar. Awesome new combo.
The remainder of my afternoon was devoted to cleaning the house, a Homegoods shopping trip (where of course I had to buy Sullie a new toy) and buying new makeup at the mall. Now I’m off to whip up dinner and prepare to teach my Sunday morning hot class.
Sullie says happy weekend!
