Sweaty Stats: Thursday I did my last run before the race on Sunday… 5 miles. It felt good and easy, so bring it on 13.1!! Friday I hit up the elliptical and did some ab work. I’m not sure if I’ll do anything today, maybe just walking and stretching tonight.
I feel totally ready and really excited for tomorrow’s Rock and Roll Half Marathon! I have some friends running the race with me, and some friends coming down to cheer me on along the course! Talk about amazeball friends! I’m a lucky girl 🙂
I’m going to keep this post short and sweet because I have a race expo to get to in a bit, but I wanted to share a couple of my eats from this week.
You know I love my bento meals! Check out my last bento post on how to build the perfect bento style meal. Here’s my latest bento breakfast box from this week.
I took 1 piece of my favorite Alpine Valley bread and cut off the very edge of the crust. Then I flattened/smashed the bread, this is important! I spread about 1 Tbl. of peanut butter on the flat bread and placed the whole banana right in there. Roll it up and carefully cut the roll into bite size pieces. I tried to be careful but you can see this is a bit delicate and can break up a bit. Finish off with some fruit and the breakfast bento is complete! It was so good and cute looking, give it a try! 🙂
Next up, this corn-avocado-tomato salad. I’m loving corn right now and it’s cheap and in season! I’ve seen variation of this salad, but I wanted to keep it simple, and free of creamy dressings and cheese. Try this light and refreshing salad for any occasion this summer!
UPDATED – I didn’t realize that half of my post wasn’t up, agh! So here’s the salad and quick recipe for it.
I love love love corn in the summer!! I always try to add it to salads, sides, and pretty much anything I can! This lil salad is delish on it’s own or to compliment a main dish. Since it’s a salad, the measurements don’t have to be super exact…you know how salads go, pretty much throw stuff in a bowl and call it a day!
1 Small Serving (About 1 Cup):
- 1 ear of white corn boiled and cut off the cob (grilled would be even better)
- Small handful of grape tomatoes halved
- 1/2 small avocado cubed – this ones up to you, the more you add the more healthy fats you get…along with more calories.
- Dressing: 1 tsp honey, juice from 1 lime, dash salt, pepper. I added a bit of cayenne pepper for a lil kick
- Mix it all up and enjoy!
