Rain, rain, and more rain here lately. That’s a good thing, California needs it! But things tend to get a little cranky after many wet and gray days. We got a beautiful break in the rain Sunday morning, perfect for a 10-mile run.
A little windy and the clouds were starting to build for the next storm towards the end, but the the grazing sheep were happy to chillax in the grass.
That was my final long run before a half marathon this weekend and the forecast is showing plenty of rain for it. Yikes, that should be fun!
I made an interesting post-run lunch using up a package of Follow Your Heart’s VeganEgg and a package of Trader Joe’s Frozen Edamame Seaweed Rice for a savory, veggie loaded scramble.
It was very hearty and filling, the texture of the VeganEgg product works well for fast and simple scrambles.
By Sunday evening I was feeling wiped after the long run and running errands in the rain, so I kept it simple again with a marinara saute with Tofurky Sausage, kale, and carrots.
Delicious for less than 15 minutes to saute stove top.
I went with the rice bowl and was impressed with the vibrant, colorful display of veggies.
There was also this simple lunch salad topped with pumpkin seeds and pumpkin tortilla chips with mushroom dressing.
And this very simple oil free stir fry after a busy day at work and the gym with tempeh, carrots, kale, and purple cauliflower.
First time having purple cauliflower, it was an impulse buy at Trader Joe’s and it adds such a pretty and fun color to salads and stir fries. It didn’t taste different from white cauliflower, but adds a fun color pop.
