Another day, more great food. It's starting to sound the same a lot. I am still really enjoying the food I am eating and I hope I can keep this up long term.
Breakfast: Eggs, Spinach, Mushrooms and Clarified Butter
Yep, I clarified butter last night so it was a nice change of pace today to use the butter instead of the evoo. I cooked up some mushrooms and spinach and tossed in a few eggs.
This is one of the easy, quick and filling breakfasts. I really enjoyed it today.
Oh my goodness, this completely made my happy today. It was really a fantastic lunch.
Dinner: Pork Chops, Sweet Potato, Apple and Clarified Butter
Simple pan cooked pork chops, baked sweet potato and clarified butter with an apple.
Funny thing, this was truly a sweet potato - I knew when I bought it that it wasn't a yam, but a sweet potato. Still it does seem odd to have a yellow sweet potato. The taste was okay though so that's all that really mattered.
I made my "taco salad" lunch today and it was so good. As I was eating it, I kept thinking I could so eat another bowl of that. Funny thing - there would have been no way I could have eaten more and not gotten sick. The amount I had was perfect and I was full.l and satisfied. It still amazes me how different it is when you have the right combination of foods - you really do get full.
So, I mentioned that I would probably feel like my clothes are tight today. Surprisingly not. In fact, I was shocked to see that one of the shirts I usually wear was actually a little looser today. It's not like massive change, but it is still change and I noticed it. That was a huge plus for me today.
Tonight I got in a 30 minute walk on the treadmill. My right knee is still not super happy, but walking doesn't seem to make it hurt worse so that's a good thing. I just have to work up the miles slowly and keep doing what I'm doing so that I can keep doing races and hopefully improve again.
