I am so glad this week is almost over and looking forward to sleeping well tonight since I haven’t been the last couple of nights with work stress and odd dreams. Miko has no problem getting comfy for a deep sleep.
I’m jealous this week! Running is going, I got a few good treadmill runs in this week mixing tempo, hill training, and easy intervals.
I wanted to get another run in, but decided to mix in an elliptical workout to rest a sore hip muscle. Thankfully we may be done with the triple digit heat here for awhile and long runs will get easier this month.
Still lots of simple salads with the hot weather. This Bush’s Best Sriracha Hummus mixed with tamari and apple cider vinegar made a great, simple dressing.
Perfect in a cooling salad with chickpeas and chopped green onions.
And there was this masterpiece salad I whipped up with a delicious throwback recipe – Avocado Ginger Dressing.
There was also this loaded salad with black beans and steamed spaghetti squash.
I am craving hot dishes here and there now that it’s not so hot outside, like this chopped broccoli and cauliflower simmered with kidney beans in marinara sauce.
And I simmered brown rice, pinto beans, summer squash and more veggies in a simple blend of curry paste and coconut milk.
It’s been a good week of eats, but I am wiped after another busy week at work and so ready for the weekend!
