Short weeks throw me off.
It was a random day of eats. I can’t seem to get enough vegetables in my body post-Christmas. Raw, crunchy green and orange veggies seem like treats right now.
That’s why I went to a burger joint and ordered a veggie sandwich. Don’t judge.
This morning was a rush to get out the door to the airport, but I managed to squeeze in a workout knowing this trip won’t allow time for one. 45 mins on the “glutes” setting of mom’s elliptical and a quick BodyRock – The One That Got Away.
Sweating in the morning almost always translates to a smoothie-breakfast for me. It also means I’m starving and almost chugging the whole thing before I get a pic.
Served with a side of coffee, of course.
Green Apple Pie Smoothie
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1 C spinach
- 1/2 large banana
- 1/2 apple
- 1/2 tsp almond extract
- 1/2 tsp apple pie spice
- 1/4 tsp cardamom
A green smoothie has never tasted so good after all of the post-Christmas indulgence.
Our flight took off right at lunchtime, so technically my “snack” lunch and my lunch at 4p (yes, my stomach was eating my spine at the point). Either way, I ate at 5 Guys Burgers.
And in the rush to shovel food in my mouth, I failed to take a pic.
I assure you that the veggie sandwich (with hot sauce) and Cajun fries were worth the wait.
Being adventurous eaters, Mom and I searched for the top restaurants in the small suburb of Annapolis we’re staying in. A place called Golden Pavillion earned 5/5 stars on Google and Yelp… sold.
Chinese food from random strip malls always has the potential for greatness
or food poisoning.
Since I was on a place, I had my customary pretzels and Coke Zero.
Thank god I got some snazzy boots for Christmas – it’s pouring down rain up north!
