Run #13: 3 Hot Miles and my Inner Fat Kid

We did a 3-miler today that went relatively well considering a few non-working crosswalk signals (you'll be hearing from me, Sandy Springs!!) and some pretty brutal heat. I LOVE my new Brooks Ravennas. Not only are they mad cute and lime green, but they feel great and I'm pretty happy to be in a lighter shoe (compared to my Adrenaline 11s). Thanks soooo much to Big Peach for being incredibly helpful and informative. Matt is my hero.

But now on to what I really want to talk about....food!

I have such an inner fat kid. Food and I haven't always gotten along very well, but our relationship is drastically improving. So, I'd like to share some of my fave things in the world to make. One note: I am not a food blogger. I'm not that great at taking photos. If you want food porn, go here.

Breakfast: Morning meals are generally Mihkel's territory. I love over-easy eggs. I like to mush the yolk into toast and cover it in Tabasco. Mihkel caters to this and manages to make pretty killer less redneck and more run-friendly meals. My fave right now is this:

Man, I suck at food pictures....now making it a goal to get better. Back to the food! This is peanut butter, apple, and turkey bacon on wheat. I love this breakfast sandwich. The best PB is the kind you get ground for you at the Dekalb Farmer's Market, but JIF works fine too.

My favorite lunch/light dinner right now is this:
This is an Alton Brown recipe that I have gotten hooked on. Of course, Alton Brown could give me a recipe for sheetrock risotto and I'd try it. Here's the recipe. This is basically sardines marinated in sherry vinegar, parsley, lemon zest, and the oil they are packed in spread on toast with smooshed avocado.

Now, before you make that face at "sardines" consider...sardines contain a great amount of the good fatty acid, tons of calcium, iron (of which I am persistently deficient) and are mad filling. Plus, they are environmentally friendly and wallet friendly.

So, before you get all "ewww!" and snobby on me, give it a shot. If it's good enough for Alton, it's good enough for me.

Those are two I wanted to share with y'all real quick. There will be much more to come as I figure out how to take better food photos!

Happy eating and even happier running!!
