my less serious day: eggs & ketchup

If you don't dip your eggs in ketchup your life is sad and empty. I'm just sayin'...

Wearing.

Top: Anthropologie; skirt & belt: LOFT; shoes: Miz Mooz via Piperlime.

Doing.

This morning I hit the pavement for a 30-minute run at working pace. I took three 15-minute walks during my day - morning, lunchtime, and after work. My afternoon workout was a 60-minute Body Pump class.

Eating.


Pre-workout I had 1/2 banana, 1/2 mug of black coffee, and 1 pint of water. For breakfast I had a bowl of Kashi GoLean Original mixed with Post Great Grains Raisin, Date, & Pecan cereal, 1/2 banana, and almond milk.


Lunch was a spinach and romaine salad with grape tomatoes, leftover roasted broccoli, green and orange bell peppers, hummus, dates, toasted pecans, and balsamic vinegar.
 

My afternoon snack was a Fuji apple and cinnamon-roast almonds (these are amazing).


Dinner was two scrambled eggs, a whole wheat English muffin topped with Earth Balance, and roasted broccoli. The eggs and broccoli were dipped lots and lots of ketchup.


Dessert was Special K Protein Plus cereal mixed with more cinnamon-roast almonds.

Note: this post represents what happened in my world on Monday, April 16.

  1. My life is sad and empty then :/ I feel the same way about honey mustard though - if you dont dip your veggies/fries/sweet potatoes in it...there really is no reason for life.

  6. I read your first sentence, and was all prepared to respond with, "I may not eat eggs, but I will dunk my broccoli in ketchup!" And then I read further...to see that you dip broccoli in ketchup. Haha, glad I'm not the only one ketchup-ing my veggies! And, well, any other food that I could possibly try in ketchup. Popcorn in ketchup? Surprisingly good.

  8. Eggs shouldn't exist without ketchup. It's just unethical.
