Angus, meet my foodie friends. Foodie friends, meet Angus (a.k.a. The Beast)…
He’s my bud for the week. At least I won’t have to worry about kidnappers or anything – this dog would scare anyone away. Good thing he is secretly uber-mild mannered. Just don’t tell the kidnappers that .
Breakfast was quick and satisfying (T.W.S.S.) – Banana Nut Cheerios + skim milk alongside a naner + AB.
One of the benefits of taking care of your cousin’s dog is (a) having a brand new eco-friendly apartment to stay in for the week (made of astroturf and recycled materials!), and (b) raiding other peep’s pantries! I had full permission from the cuz to eat whatev, and I happily found these little darlings in the cupboard…
Holy yummola, these were fabulous! They are little crunchy nut clusters filled with dried berries, almonds, cashews, pistachios and sesame seeds (bound together with rice malt + evaporated cane juice). Dee-lish! It was 2 servings in the bag (pooey!), but those 350 kcals were well worth it! I am definitely going to go purchase these on my own, which is saying a lot since I am totes poor.
Lunch was a lovely colorful snack plate of assorted goods…
Afternoon snack was no surprise…
1 cup strawbs + bluebs
Stonyfield Organic nonfat lemon yogurt
sprinkle Zoe Honey + Almond granola
I got a pile of work at the end of the day, which kept me busy until check-out time at 4:30pm. I tried to get home ASAP because quite frankly, even though I’m not the hugest fan of dogs (due to a traumatic childhood incident involving my neighbor’s LARGE show poodles – it’s a long story), Angus looked really sad this morning. I felt so bad leaving him all day .
However, I got home, let the beast out in the dog park (yes, the apartment building has a courtyard dog park!) and prepared to make a smashing good dinner…
hunk o’ pine nut hummus
sprinkle of onion
handful of bluebs
2 Wasa crackers
drizzle of flax oil (another pantry find!)
Rando combos = the best ever. This will be the perfect 12-mile run fuel – I don’t feel weighted down at all but yet totally energized. A good mix of protein, carbs + fat to hopefully not die complete the 12 miles in record time!
Alright, enough procrastinating. I gotta go let Angus out once more before I go running, then I need to get dressed (often the toughest part for me!) and get my buns out the door. Let’s hope it doesn’t rain on me (the clouds are a bit ominous!) and a snack will DEFINITELY be had when I get back…errr…if I get back….
What is your favorite rando combo? Let me hear it dudes! I grew up with a dad who LOVED vanilla ice cream + raspberry jelly + Lay’s potato chips. To this day, it might still be my fave rando combo.
