Thanks for the great tips you left in comments to the YAYS and NAYS post! After this post I’ll be replying to the comments from Tuesday! I had the busiest day yesterday – I didn’t even SEE my home computer at ALL! So I didn’t get a blog post out and I didn’t even get to reply to any emails. I woke up this morning and it feels like Wednesday was a total blur.
I would almost think Wednesday didn’t happen, if it weren’t for my SORE LEGS! They are proof that I did in fact get up and workout yesterday!

Legs = FRIED! I love the day after a good leg workout when all the muscles are reminding you they are there! The legs are TALKING TO ME TODAY!
I’ve had some good eats in recent days that I thought you’d like to see.
A grilled goat cheese sandwich (made on Ezekial bread, what else??) with a side salad and another WONDERFUL new soup (Imagine brand Organic Fire Roasted Tomato Bisque). A very creamy yet DAIRY-FREE tomato soup! I LOVED this soup… very flavorful. A quick and tasty dinner. I went very light on the goat cheese to keep it from being too calorie dense, about an ounce and a half in thin slivers.
I also attempted to make an Edamame Hummus, after having devoured that appetizer at Root Down last week. I had a 10 oz package of organic frozen shelled edamame and scanned through a few recipes on the internet.
This contains lemon juice, sesame oil, sea salt, and some veggie stock. I think what I ended up with was more Eda-mole than hummus. It needed a LOT of added sea salt to have some flavor, so I’ll be trying a few more recipes. This one wasn’t really worth sharing just yet. Not bad, just not WOW. And definitely not nearly as good as Root Down’s.
If you have a recipe for Edamame Hummus that you’d like to share (or ANY hummus for that matter, seeing how I am a HUMMUS-HOLIC) I’d love to hear from you! Drop a comment!
Speaking of hummus, we made a trip to Garbanzo’s and my hummus plate lasted for THREE meals! Now that’s budget- friendly! You get a big dollop of hummus in the middle and then I order all the veggies they offer, and skip the rice, pita and chips. Then I bring it home and using an Ezekial pita, I do this:
Smear a little hummus inside the pita, add two falafel, pickled eggplant, tabbouleh, and the chopped tomato/cucumber salad. Then I made a side salad with spinach from home, added a little hummus, some pickled eggplant and a drizzle of their tahini dressing. THREE MEALS I got out of this for the $6 plate. And TASTY!
No fecal material in MY salads or smoothies, thankyouverymuch!
Well, I am off to take my pics for tomorrow’s FLEX-IT FRIDAY. Send me your pics today to shari at fitfeat dot com. If you DO NOT get a reply from me by email after sending your pic(s), drop a comment here at the blog to let me know. Because I will write each person back when the pics come through to let you know I got them, so no return email means that they didn’t make it through. And if you are a blogger, include your URL and I’ll be sure to link back to your site when I write the post.
Where are the peeps from Cindy’s CORE Challenge? This is for you!
Have a terrific Thursday, friends!
