Weekend Eats and Treats

Oh boy, do I have some catching up to do!  You know those weekends that are really busy, but you don’t really know with what?  Well, that was my weekend.

It began with a trip to Fleet Feet for new running shoes! Yay!! My knees were starting to bug me, and I was definitely over

Later that evening, I dug out the ole’ charcoal grill and had The First Grill Night of Nicer-ish Weather!  (I say “nicer-ish” because its only maybe gotten up to 60–But hey! For upstate New York, that’s a heat wave!

The burgers were delish, as were the bakery-fresh rolls and the grilled asparagus.  I love grilled asparagus.  Toss in a little olive oil, sprinkle on some seasoning of your choice, roll them around on the grill for a couple of minutes and BAM! Done. 🙂

Sunday morning I had fresh pineapple and scrambled eggs with salsa verde.  Do you live near a Wegmans?  If you do, pick this up!  I really can’t get enough of it.
Sunday was grocery shopping day.  I got lots of yummy stuff.
Here’s a tip for you:  Clean and cut a few fresh veggies.  That way it’s easier to throw together a quick salad or healthy snack.  Store them in tupperware and you’re ready to go!
I also made a big pot of Quinoa (pronounced Keen-Wah).
For those who may be unfamiliar with this grain, quinoa is a complete protein, meaning in contains all of the essential amino acids.  It’s also high in dietary fiber, phosphorus, magnesium and iron.  Also, it’s gluten-free!  It’s super easy to cook.  Just like rice.  I put this in tupperware too.  I have some delicious meals in my future!

Speaking of delicious meals, check out this breakfast.

Superhero Oatmeal topped with:

  • 1 Tablespoon of Chia Seeds (soaked with the cereal)
  • 1 Tablespoon Nutella
  • A handful of raspberries
  • Sprinkling of Shredded Coconut

Certainly a great way to start my week off!  Hope you are having a great Monday too!
