Goodmorning!! Its Sunday morning, and its a BEAUTIFUL day here in Boston. It was perfect weather yesterday as well. I love when the sun decides to come out especially on the weekends. Friday night, after work I went to my parents house for a big passover dinner with Jason, my brother and my brothers girlfried, Becca. My parents just returned back from a 3 week trip in Turkey and Isreal so I was so excited to see them!
Matzah (whole wheat and regular)
Charoset which is made with apples, waluts, golden raisins and wine. I LOVE this stuff!!
Matzah sandwich with the charoset
Matzah ball soup. The matzah balls were SO big!!
My mom's famous Chicken Marbella. The recipe for this delicious chicken recipe is in my recipe section
roasted green beans.
A potato dish, that when I asked my mom what was in it she replied "don't even ask, just eat it and enjoy" I think it was laden with lots of "not so onefitfoodie" ingredients. :)
Salad of baby romaine, cucumber, and grape tomatoes
My plate (sorry for the lighting)
Dessert!! (there was also a matzah pound cake but it tasted like sand, so I stuck to these 3 ingredients)
Matzah birthday cake for me! It was slathered with nutella and walnuts
My dessert bowl. Vanilla fro-yo with whipped cream and marinated strawberries. YUM
MY parents brought us all back these Turkish Amulets. They are said to protect you from evil! It was an amazing dinner!!
Saturday I woke up and had some breakfast, and was off to teach SPIN class! Below is my playlist.
It was a good one! "Uprising" by the Muse is an AMAZING workout song. It really pumps me up!
Post workout protein shake! I used Jay Robb Pina Colada Flavor. I had a sample, so I thought I would give it a whirl. Verdict? LOVED IT! It tasted like a pina colada! I don't know if I would get sick of a whole tub of this flavor, but once in a while it is SO good!!
- 1 Packet JR Pina Colada flavor Whey protein powder
- handful of frozen berries
- 1/2 C skim milk
- 1/2 C almond milk
80 degrees in Boston calls for ICED COFFEE!! It was so good, I refilled when I went home to do my taxes with my mom.
I made a large salad for lunch!
- Beefsteak tomatoes
- Canelli beans
- roasted left over sweet potato
- Roasted left over brocolli
- Homeamde tuna salad made with 1 LC wedge and celery
Saturday Night I went to Jasons house and we just watched some tv/movies and hung out. We went for a motorcycle ride around 6pm, which was the PERFECT time, it was still light out and so pretty!
We got take out from a local pizza joint called Thyagos. We split the calafornia salad. It comes with lettuce, corn, avocado, tomatoes, green pepper, raisins, candied walnuts and red onion. It is by FAR one of my most favorite salads
I also got a chicken kebab wrap with grilled veggies and mozzerella cheese. (I ate only a tiny bit of the wrap) I know its still passover, so I really just tore this thing apart and ate it with a fork.
- Today, Jason and I are just lounging. We will probably go for a motorcycle ride, but for the most part just totally relaxing!
- What are you up to today?
- Best new product you have tried recently?
