i am an athlete.
i am a pescatarian.
(i eat 90% vegetarian and vegan meals but have not made the full plunge. time will tell)
i am passionate about/and love food.
i am on a journey to be healthy and fit.
and i am constantly learning how to balance these two into a healthy and complete lifestyle.
man o man have i been busy. no excuses.
so. today. today was a great day! i pushed through my tired time. which is daily between 4pm-6pm. instead of taking a nap. i ran! and then i ate a fabulous raw dinner.
new challenge. eat raw for 30 days. today is day 2. my plan is to go for the full 30 days. it’s going to be a challenge. especially since the 4th of july is right around the corner. it’s already tough enough being a pescatarian. i’m going to bring some snacks. and try to think of an entree that every one might like.
yesterday i made an amazing “alfredo sacue”. AMAZING with sea kelp noodles and some raw carrots. then a great lunch today for dippin veggies. might be a good one. i’m also planning on making a “tuna wrap”. i need to be better about taking pictures. one. so i can share. two. because i love taking pictures of beautiful food!
raw alfredo sauce recipe
• 2 cups unsoaked cashews
• 1/2 cup pine nuts (or just use more cashews if you don’t have pine nuts)
• 1 tablespoon lemon juice
• 3 cloves garlic
• 1 1/2 cups water
• 1 teaspoon thyme spice
• 1 teaspoon sea salt
throw it all in the blender and blend ’til it gets alfredoey! it’ll get really nice and creamy, so keep blending… and you’re done!
serve over “noodles!”
DELICIOUS recipe! seriously a must try. i had kelp noodles but i think that zucchini noodles would be great too. i have found that i am going to need to invest in a vegetable spiral slicer. then a dehydrator. even if i don’t stay raw 100%. i do know that i’ll have it be a much larger part of my diet.
this last week i have been 100% off the healthy/working out wagon. and now. i am feeling the negative repercussions. not only do i just feel like ‘blah’. chubby. etc. i’ve lost all my energy. ugh.
all i can think of are excuses. and that’s just even more frustrating. i’ve been avoiding updating. because then i have to realize and acknowledge my laziness.
i’ve got 8 weeks until my 10k and 13 weeks until my half marathon. let the count down begin. this is definitely more than enough time to train and have extremely successful runs.
starting fresh. tomorrow. waking up and running before work. after work. walk with the mollie dog AND some bikram yoga. finally!
