First, some randoms.
1. Seeing this made me so so happy. Isn’t she adorable? I am so impressed by Harriette and I hope I am doing the same thing when I am 91 years old.
2. Brooke has come up with a new fitness class idea—> mini trampolines and resistance bands at the same time.
3. My niece just chopped off her hair to donate it to Locks of Love. She had the idea to do this years ago and has been doing it every year since then.
4. I almost died when I saw these ginormous cases of olives at Costco yesterday. Who would buy that many olives (ps olives are the one food in the world I can’t stand)?
Aubergine & Company is the new cool place in Utah County. Everyone has been talking about how good it is so I finally got a chance to go in for dinner last night. You can find their instagram here and Facebook page here.
They offer Mediterranean sandwiches, salads, chopped salads, acai bowls (I really need to try one of these!) and a ton of desserts that are sugar free (sweetened with things like agave instead of white sugar).
We split the chicken sandwich (oh, the fresh pita bread was incredible) that was filled with all sorts of veggies and quinoa with a side of sweet potatoes.
And this would be what a 48 ounce salad looks like. I almost couldn’t finish it (which is saying a lot because I am quite used to large amounts of produce) because there were so many toppings (chicken, avocado, red peppers, cucumbers, zucchini and their homemade Italian dressing). We both agreed that we just felt really good after eating this food. Turns out that really healthy food just makes you feel good for some strange reason;) I love it when everything is so fresh and homemade.
Any guesses as to how fast I will be going through this 4 lb crate of strawberries? My greek yogurt bowl right before bed.
This actually brings up something that I have been meaning to ask you. Do you follow the idea to not eat past 9 (or any other time) o’clock at night? I personally don’t because I think that a calorie is a calorie at any time of day/night BUT I do think that it is valid advice in the sense that we tend to eat a lot more junk food late at night compared to any other time of day even if we aren’t hungry. If I am hungry at night, then I am going to eat:) What do you think? Have you ever tried not to eat past a certain time of night? What time of day do you tend to reach for the junk food? Do you eat right before you go to bed? Favorite late night snack?
-Yes. I always have to have something right before I go to bed.
Foam rolling video will be up in the next post! Have a great Tuesday.
Who ran RNR San Diego this last weekend? How did it go for you? Who has done this race in the past?
Ever tried an acai bowl?
Last place that you went out to eat at?
