The last time I cooked quinoa, I burned it beyond recognition. Seriously, the pan I used is still not quite right (it has black specs of quinoa remains still burned deep into its finish). Well tonight I pulled it off without a hitch and more importantly without setting off the smoke detector! So I now have lots of freshly cooked quinoa for my upcoming RBR week!
I am still actively amidst my, "trying to eat healthy for a short time in hopes that it will somehow miraculously help my time at the Riverbank Run (RBR)" gig and I must say, "it is getting rather a bit boring" (spoken in a sexy (yet not very accurate) english accent please). So today I went to a cookout with friends and family and the burger, fries and icecream pie was just what this gal needed. I am now officially ready to run 15.5 miles next Saturday! I wasnt totally unhealthy either... well I mean as far as the meal goes I was, but I did run 4 miles tonight so at least I burned off some of those calories.
Anyhow, I have been making a few health exceptions of recent with the grocery challenge: I bought steel cut oats in an attempt to improve my breakfast habits. I purchased lots of quinoa and discovered that red quinoa exists and bought some of that as well. I stocked up on fruits and veggies as well and our chickens have really gotten the hang of this egg laying thing so we have plenty of fresh eggs which as I suspected are absolutely delicious when placed atop an english muffin with a slice of smoked gouda!
P.S. I do recognize that I violated standard practice regarding acronyms, but I wanted to peak your curiousity about RBR. You know I don't want to become too predictable or boring. Hope it worked.
