Busy month, yummy foods

Happy Monday, or if you are sunburned like me, not so happy 😦 I was at the beautiful Edisto beach all weekend (hence the lack of posts) and am fully prepared to kick-off another week of cooking but feel that some minor adjustments need to be made on the training front.

First of all, I can not run outside until this sunburn subsides. It is beyond painful to even walk in the sun. I am really upset because I wore a 30 SPF and even a 70 in some places but this is a great example on why it is oh-so important to “reapply.”

There was no shortage of food but I’m happy to say that while on vacation the girls and I made a conscious effort to keep a healthy diet. In the morning we would cook some eggs along with a vast array of fruits and english muffins. For lunches on the beach we made sure to pack healthy sandwiches with wheat bread, low-fat turkey, cucumber, lettuce and tomato!

Of course there was some yummy treats…it was after all, vacation. These mini cheesecake muffins that Sara made were amazing!!!

…and it was Kim’s birthday so we had to have a cake! It was delish 🙂

Dinners were brown rice with chicken, veggie burgers (and regular burgers for those who wanted them) and kabobs. We didn’t let ourselves eat too terribly but I’m sure with the amount of beer that was consumed I still have some major running to do this week.

I have decided to go to the gym to run my usual 2 miles tonight to shield me from anymore burning and I’m looking forward to eating some yummy steak tonight courtesy of the hubbie-to-be. I plan to make some pan-seared cherry tomatoes and some steamed lemon-brocolli to go with it…

Which brings me to: The meal plan for this week!

Monday: Steak w/pan-seared cherry tomatoes and steamed lemon brocolli

Tuesday: Green Tomato and Honeydew Melon Salad w/Grilled Oregano Shrimp

Wednesday: Seared Wild Salmon w/New Potatoes and Dijon Broth

Thursday: Pasta Salad with Garbanzo Beans, Tomatoes and Feta Cheese (I love some Feta!)

Friday: Artichoke and Feta Stuffed Turkey Burgers (can’t wait to try this from bakinandeggs.com)

Saturday: Chris and I are going to a friend’s house for her birthday and grilling out. Not sure what is on the menu just yet, but can’t wait to have someone cook it for us!

Sunday: Baby Greens with Warm Goat cheese rounds

Also, on a side note: I’m aware that I haven’t posted about healthy and on-the-go lunches but that is only because I figured instead of spouting off to you about what I “think” would be great ideas, I’m going to try them. I’ll be documenting the lunches I eat for the rest of the week and posting the results hopefully before jetting off to NY for my best-friend’s wedding (which will be a weekend loaded with yummy new recipes and meals!)

  2. You sound pretty busy, remember to put the important things in your day first. You’ll find room for the rest and feel better.
