It’s nice to relax a bit after a couple of busy days at work, Miko has been enjoying downtime watching the Olympics in the evening with us.
I motivated myself to the gym after work today for a 30-minute tempo run and weight session.
It was good, but tiring since the heat was back today and more triple-digit heat days are back in the forecast for the next week. Boo.
Sunday hubby and I stepped out for and early anniversary celebration dinner at Garden to Grill. I love this place and need to get there more, so many great vegan options from healthy salads and quinoa bowls, to vegan comfort foods and decadent desserts. We started with the kombucha vodka cocktails in passion fruit and strawberry.
Wow! Kombucha makes damn good cocktails that I need to try making at home too!
And I seriously splurged for dinner – a rare treat after a long run. The western burger with onion rings, vegan cheese, hearty veggie patty, and tempeh bacon. With nacho cheese fries!
Yeah, it was an insane vegan splurge that hubby helped with and I had to try his avocado-loaded tempeh reuben.
They also have a lovely patio in the front and back with beautiful trees, such a great eating experience that I wish was closer to me!
I also worked with a fun Grocery Outlet score for a simple stir fry dinner – Westsoy Seitan.
I used it in a simple oil free stir fry with tamari and fresh summer squash.
With 21 grams of protein per serving, this makes a hearty and simple post-gym meal.
And there have been more salads too – always! This one is loaded with black beans and a kicky sriracha hummus dressing for a simple, cooling summer meal.
And if all goes well, I’m cramming in 5 running workouts this week. Yikes! Hope everyone is having a great week so far!
