The thunderstorms in the Chicago land area this afternoon were c.r.a.z.y. I, of course, drove home during the worse of it. The rain was coming down so hard, I couldn't see the road and the clouds were so eerie...I was expecting to see a tornado right in front of me. But I'm here! and still alive! Tornado weather scares the socks off of me.
Onto some tasty eats...
Today for breakfast I had an old time favorite...a breakfast cookie. Who wouldn't want a cookie for breakfast?? Gina from Fitnessista introduced this to me. Warning: they are addicting.
BIG news! My local farmer's market opened yesterday. I literally have been counting the days till its opening. They had around 8-10 vendors and I picked up green leaf lettuce, strawberries (they melt in your mouth), green onions, snap peas, homemade hummus and minestrone soup for D. They didn't have a huge selection but I'm thinking as the weeks go by, there will be many more veggies for sale. I will faithfully be in line every Thursday with my oneluckyduck tote bag.
Today's lunch was a huge fresh salad with broccoli, green onions, carrots, snap peas, and a splash of Annie's italian dressing.
Sweet kiwis...yes I like to eat the fur too.
My Sun Warrior came today!!! Sadly, the box got a little drenched sitting on my doorstep during the flood today.
Good stats, huh? 16g protein in one scoop. 70 calories. That's kinda insane.
I ripped the bag open as fast as I could and made an apricot, strawberry, banana smoothie. Perfect.
I'm so happy its Friday. My sister and I might get sushi tonight, depending on the weather. I'm thinking about ordering 5 servings of seaweed salad. Not weird, right? Today has turned out pretty good...because 1) my Sun Warrior came and 2) look what I found at my friend's garage sale this morning!!!
Hope everyone has a great weekend. Tomorrow we are going out with our friends for their one year anniversary and we're going to brewery in the city. I see a delicious organic beer in my future...
