Last night was relaxing After work yesterday Ben and I took a long walk (my only cardio of the day) and then came home to a super easy dinner.
I am in love with green bean fries. Now before you roll your eyes, let me be clear – I’m NOT the girl who says some bullshit yogurt parfait is “just like Yogurtland!”, or that cookies baked with apple sauce “taste just like the real thing”. No and no.
Since we’re on the topic, Artic Zero is not a real substitute for ice cream. But, it is a good place holder if you are a habitual night time snacker that just needs some hand to mouth action to relax on the couch.
Yes, the “ice cream”, if you would call it that, is a bit gray.
This morning I busted out an easy 4 miler. I’m planning on doing a long run tomorrow and maybe actually training for that marathon I said I was going to do in August.
Why did I sign up for that again?
Then I took a quick poll on twitter to determine breakfast. Yes, I consult strangers as to what I should eat. I’m going to start doing this with every meal. My fate is in your hands!
I topped it with one of the agave packets I got from my Blogher Food swag bag. That wasn’t enough and I grabbed some maple syrup too.
Last night Ben made me an adult beverage, but he’s no bartender so it was just vodka and tea. He said it was, “just like a long island iced tea”. Um, no just because you add alcohol to tea doesn’t make it a Long Island.
If only I had a gold medal I would have people bringing me real drinks. I mean, Mountain Dew…
Question: Do you have a healthy food that really could replace an unhealthy one? Share!
