I'm switching things up today and (permanently) moving Friday Things to Thursday in order to move Healthy Weekly Meal Plans to Fridays. So welcome to the new Thursday Things: Pictures, links, recipes + stories from my Real Food Whole Life this week. Enjoy!
Snack Lunch. One of my favorite ways to lunch: cucumber + raw, organic, grass-fed cheddar + bell pepper + snap peas (from the garden!) + raw cashews + white nectarine + cherry tomatoes + green tea chia fresca (recipe coming soon!).
28 Miles a Week. As I shared here, one of my goals for the barre3 Anywhere Challenge is to walk/hike at last 28 miles per week. This goal has really motivated me to move more during the work week and to log some extra miles during the weekend. What are your summer fitness goals? I'd love to know!
Dinner 3 Ways. This week we had Quick Sesame Noodles with Green Veggies, a recipe I love for weeknights because it's so darn fast. I had mine over zoodles, Andrew had his over a combo of zoodles and whole wheat pasta, and Elle had whole wheat pasta with olive oil + sea salt with the broccoli and snap peas in a bowl on the side. Apparently green things can't touch pasta. Whatever works!
Running Through the Trees. During our weekend hike Elle decided she wanted to trail run "like Daddy." The two of them took off and I caught a glimpse of my future. In that future I am getting left in the dust.
10 Minutes Everyday. I've been setting a timer in the afternoon as a reminder to stand up at my desk and do at least one 10-minute barre3 Online workout. It's amazing the difference 10-minutes can make!
