They’re super hearty and healthy in all sorts of ways — they’re made from organic lentils, barley, carrots, spinach, onions, spelt, eggs, etc. Holy ingredients list. We de-heathlified them a bit by serving with a large slice of sharp cheddar and a side of zucchini fries.
Score: 8/10! Which means pretty good — but, not a 10 because Anthony proclaimed that my homemade black bean burgers are better. What?! Mine are better than these high-end patties? Proudest moment of my life. I’m going to have to quit my job and become a burger-ista.
In addition to trying new foods, Anthony tried a new exercise routine last night: CrossFit. Yes, his time has come. He really liked his first class! I would totally join if I had the money and was not addicted to running — it sounds like a great workout and a good community.
He was contemplating joining the “box” (aka, CrossFit gym) and decided to when fate sent me an email last night from Active.com: Improve Running Performance with CrossFit. Perfect! “Strength training can improve your power, speed, balance, coordination, bone and tendon. Don’t limit your training to one aspect—be a complete runner.” I totally agree.
I haven’t joined CrossFit yet (and probably won’t until I have some extra $$$), but am working on improving running performance with…running. Track. Like last week, the gates were locked so we had to break in. Sigh.
Anthony has been to track 3 weeks in a row! He really likes sprinting. I sort of like it, but mostly just enjoy running to this part of town on Thursdays to see what people are tossing out. After 4x1600s, I definitely was happy to take a seat — how kind of these Petworth neighbors to provide me with one!
But I finally made it home for a cuppa tea and some cold overnight oats.Thursday. It’s almost the weekend, people!!
