Feels like SUMMER!

15 06 2008

It’s about time! The weather still isn’t as hot as it should be.. but anyday that the sun actually comes out is a big deal around here. How sad is that?!

Anyways, here’s yesterday’s food!

Breakfast was no surprise obviously.. Kashi Go Lean Crunch, Fiber One with raisins, banana, and strawberries. Cereal bowl end countdown is coming soon, now that we’re almost down to the crumbs 😦

Went for an hour long run yesterday morning while it was still a little cloudy with a slight breeze. PERFECT running weather! Ahh and I realized that I could not survive without my ipod.. Seriously, anything by Beyonce or Rihanna gets me so hyped up that I could run the whole day, no problem. But “Everyone Nose”, N.E.R.D’s new one is up there too 😉

I never really have a huge appetite after a run, but I was craving something refreshing so I stuck this mango in the freezer before I left. It half-froze by the time I got back, a thick mango smoothie-ish texture to it.. YUM!

Still didn’t have much of an appetite later on, so I was kind of just grazing along the whole day.

First, a tiny bowl of leftover Orange Tofu Quinoa. Except.. with no tofu!! Someone must’ve picked out the tofu pieces and ate it out of the container, way to take the best part!!

Then wanted something to crunch on while I studied.. so had a handful of Kashi Go Lean Crunch Cereal & 10 Chocolate Graham Bears (yes, I counted them :P) along with an Iced Coffee which I ended up not even craving, so just took a couple sips before I tossed it.

The bf and two of our other friends wanted to go try out the new Japanese place in our area. So far, so good! The pictures are blegh looking since I took them with the camera on my phone.. But started off with miso soup, ebi sunomono and green tea. The ebi was kind of a disappointment though, tasted like the noodles were in water instead of vinegar? Plus they kind of cheaped out with my measely one piece of shrimp 😛

Everything is served in boats, so I got the Vegetable Combo which my friends called “one huge salad”. They kept asking me where the meat was and I told them it’s the VEGETABLE combo. I’m not a vegetarian but people just can’t accept the fact that I actually enjoy eating my veggies 😛

From the left is some Oranges&Grapes, Salad w/ a mayo-miso dressing, Vegetable Tempura (broccoli, yam, and one veggie still unknown..), Tofu Teriyaki on top of stir-fry veggies, Edamame, and a Veggie Roll.

Yep, I was basically in veggie HEAVEN!! 🙂 

Then we headed off to the beach to have a bonfire. Beach bonfires are the epitome of summer!

So the bfs went off to break pieces of plywood for firewood while all we do is wait in the car and take pictures 🙂 Haha! (That’s me on the right, hi!)

Of course, no bonfire is complete without smores. So I had a couple made with dark chocolate. Yeah, that definitely tastes like summer to me!

Well I’m off to do the Ab Ripper dvd & some lower body stuff that I didn’t get to fit in yesterday, then hitting the gym when the bf gets back from work. Happy Father’s Day everyone!!

Richelle- I just love your blog! I think your approach to food is healthy, yet mindful and I totally understand your desire to look great in your clothes, because that is what motivates me as well!
I have the same problem whenever I go out for sushi- I always get the vegetarian plate too, and people just don’t understand that I love vegetables. weird.

Richelle, may I add a link to your blog on “Meals from the Girl in the Little Black Dress”?
Thanks so much for showing that fashionable girls can still eat!

Ughh I would love nothing more than to have a beach bonfire. Now if only I had a beach…

And my mangos will now be going in the freezer. How clever you are!

annaalstondonnelly – Thanks a lot! Who said us fashionistas have to live on carrot sticks and diet coke right?! But I’d love it if you added me, I’ll add yours on here as well. Love the blog name btw 😉

Kristie – Too bad you don’t have a beach 😦 The bf’s cousins from Ontario visited a couple of weeks ago and were soo amazed with our beaches. That totally makes me appreciate them so much more!
