Heal the world (and my legs!)
Happy Earth Day everybody!! It’s been a few days since the marathon, but I am finally feeling like my old self. Despite a little lingering muscle soreness, I was itching to get moving today. I didn’t want to push it though and cause any trauma to my legs since they’re still healing from the marathon so I figured it was a good day for the pool. 20 laps and I called it a day!
I was hungry and soo not in the mood to cook tonight so I just broiled a few Dr. Praegers Cali burgers and had them over a bed of lettuce with some Dijon mustard.
…with a side of sauerkraut of course and some steamed edamame sprinkled with salt.
Dessert was ah-mazing – Earth Day Ice Cream! I threw about 2 chopped frozen bananas, a handful of spinach and a tiny splash of peppermint extract into my Cuisinart and blended until the consistency of soft-serve ice cream, stopping occasionally to scrape the sides. Topped with some agave mixed + cocoa powder. It was love at first bite!
In honor of Earth Day, try to do your part in going green. Caring about the environment really matters, not just for you but for the future generation as well. Who doesn’t want to keep the world clean for their future kiddies? Here’s a few ways I try to do my part:
- Taking public transportation/ walking as much as possible
- Buying organic, locally grown foods as much as possible
- Eating mostly vegan (learn how eating meat affects the environment HERE)
- Bringing cloth bags to the grocery store
- Educating those around me about how to help
