I woke up and went for a nice, leasurily six mile run this morning. Running sometimes makes me crave salty foods, which leads me to crave sweet foods…and so went the rest of my day.
After my run, I went on a cleaning frenzy, then realized I was starving…so I made a yogurt mess with this guy as the base:
It was so delicious. Especially combined with some chocolate protein powder, peanut butter, and granola.
Sweet and salty…in one bowl. Yum.
This wasn’t quite enough…so I had two slices of bread with pumpkin and cinnamon spread on top.
That did the trick, and I went to school for a few hours to get some planning done for next week. I always feel so organized and relaxed after I work on Saturdays…maybe it’s being there without 24 kids in the room.
When I got home…I wanted salty.
Kale chips have my heart. This is one bunch of kale, washed, ripped into pieces, drizzled with 1 tbs. evoo and sprinkled with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Baked at 375* for 12 minutes. Crispy, salty, delish. But it inevitably made me want sweet.
I ate a couple of apples. Here is a math problem for you: I started out with 9 apples on Thursday, and now I have 3 left. How many apples have I eaten in 2 days? There are worse things to be addicted to than apples.
My hunger wasn’t quite satiated, so I reached again for the salt.
Seven wafer thin crackers…
All nicely sharing 1 tbs. of crunchy peanut butter.
This marks the end of my sweet and salty Saturday. We spent the afternoon getting a new battery for Meeker’s truck, went to a little league football game, and now we are headed over to a family friend’s house for pizza and salad. (Jealous, Cait?)
Hope you all had remarkable and relaxing Saturdays. Hasta mañana!
