Comfort Soup

After my delicious oatmeal incident this morning, I went to the gym. I warmed up on the treadmill for about ten minutes then did a mini circuit rotating between lunges, free weights and abs. I finished off with more treadmill and a good stretch.

Stretching is my favorite part! I feel my flexibility getting better which feels oh so good! Can you touch your toes? 😉

On the way home on the bus I was day dreaming about avocados. So I incorporated the other half from last night into my salad for lunch.

It was like a fiesta salad! Similar to last night’s …the flavor combo gets me every time!

  • Chopped Lettuce (Salad Base)
  • Sauteed Zucchini and Onion
  • Half of a Chicken Burger
  • Half of an Avocado
  • Tzatziki
  • Hot Siracha Sauce
  • Sea Salf & Lemon to taste

Seriously, fresh squeezed lemon has been the best salad dressing for me lately. Paired with tzatziki, there’s no reason to add anything else! Besides Siracha of course.

Speaking of Siracha, I added some into my delicious dinner as well.

Yep, I made soup. Definitely the perfect day for it! It’s like 60 degrees and it’s summer…odd. Not used to it but I think after the rain passes in a few days it will be back to scorchingly hot.

This delectable comfort soup contains:

  • Sauteed Onion and Garlic
  • Lentils
  • Water
  • Chili Powder
  • Sea Salt
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Basil

I’m running low on food (I leave in 10 days and don’t want to buy too much) but the mixture of these simple ingredients was a definite success. I give it an A! It’s very healthy and very very yummy.

To cool down for dessert I put some yogurt in the freezer for about 20 minutes.

I of course topped it with Goji Berries, Almonds, Coconut, and Cinnamon. My favorite.

You can kind of see (thanks to my magnificent phone camera) how its a bit frozen.

After enjoying my yogurt, Steph and I ventured out into the chilliness for a walk. It started misting on our way back and I had some serious goosebumps (I wore shorts and a t-shirt, bad decision). I ate an apple and tahini as we watched a few re-run episodes of The Big Bang Theory. If you’ve never seen it, do yourselves a favor! It’s one of my all-time favorite shows.

Well it’s past 9pm, therefore past my bedtime. Haha just kidding…well, not really. I’m very tired and have a slight headache. Time to sleep it off.

Goodnight!…or Good Morning depending on where you live… 😉
