no beef no barriers

Anthony and I tried No Bull burgers last night! After reading about them endlessly on Kath’s blog, I had to give them a try.

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 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!!

    I`m intrigued, I want to try YOUR black bean burgers! Is there a recipe or is it a secret?
    I just did strength work today, it was quite the sweaty session haha. When I am back home I am going to hunt down a school with a track 😉

  2. Ohh…I’m excited to check out these black bean burgers. Can they survive on the grill? And those zucchini fries look fantastic. Will have to pick up some zucchini at the farmer’s market this weeked!
