Wednesday means we’re closer to the weekend and that’s all good. I went for a sunset run this evening to break in new running shoes and just loved the gorgeous views and cool breeze.
I’m on the search for my new favorite running shoes because my current favorites, Brooks Glycerin 14s, are no longer available in my size and I not a huge fan of the toe box changes in the Glycerin 15s. I have odd shaped feet with narrow heels, but slightly wide fronts. Not wide enough for wide width, but too wide for many regular widths which makes finding a good shoe challenging. I’m trying Nike LunarGlide 9s currently and so far so good for short runs, but the toe box area my be an issue for longer runs.
Sunday was great, I had a pleasant long run in the morning visiting grazing sheep, we saw Avengers Infinity War, which was awesome, and relaxed at home.
I’m ready for more relaxing already, but will settle for vibrant comfort salads. There are allergies/colds all over the office lately and the weather is warming up, so I’ve been craving fresh, healthy salads and love adding sauerkraut for tangy zing. This week I’m working through a package of Sonoma Brinery Mild Smokey Chipotle Raw Sauerkraut which has been delicious in meal salads. It blended perfectly with a simple carrot ginger tahini dressing.
And beautifully with a spinach and spicy black bean salad with blended avocado garlic dressing.
I think I will be picking up a package of raw sauerkraut every week for the summer just for great salads.
Other great eats so far this week include broccoli and vegan “beef” from Pho Vegan Asian Cuisine for lunch.
And very simple tofu stir fry after the gym yesterday with yellow squash, broccoli, and onion. Filling, high in protein, but not too calorie dense.
