Leave it to me to get near dependent on outdoor running during the rainiest July known to man. Every day, the weather has hovered somewhere between steady drizzle and hardcore downpour. It’s really putting a damper, if you will, on my al fresco workouts. I’m no fan of being pummeled during track time, so I’ve re-instituted gymming in my life.
On the spicy side, last week I introduced the dinner salad into my life.
I’m generally a midday salad-er, but the combo of less intense indoor workouts and all around Nutella abusing persuaded me to lighten up my third meal. Is it necessary that I am on a 1-2 teaspoon daily regimen of the chocolatey spread? Probably not, but I can’t imagine a pre-nutella life and I’m wary of a future without it.
Onto my salad…
It started with arugula, and then I added some chopped jicama, mangoes, and smoked salmon I got for $2.99 at TJ’s. How sick is THAT? I then added delicious pomegranate seeds, pepper, and dressed it with olive oil and lime juice. I added a slice of ciabatta with butter, and devoured it hard. SO good. See below:
