Whew! Today has been a looong and tiring, but also really fun-filled 🙂
It started a little late with a small Persian chicken-egg-salad sandwich on some Persian flatbread:
My mom made the salad for us over the weekend- includes chicken, eggs, peas, carrots, mayo, and spices that I’m not really sure of. It’s delicious 🙂
After chilling out with this little weirdo dog for a couple hours, we got ready to go on a little hike we’d planned.
We made a long detour to Whole Foods because I was craving a baked good of some kind and wanted something out of their case.
I ended up with a vegan blueberry muffin with a super-clean ingredients list… that fell into a pile of crumbs upon biting. Sad face.
Couldn’t stop at WF without ordering a fresh juice (and waiting in line for twenty minutes for them to make it!)–
This time it had carrot, apple, beet, ginger, kale, cucumber and lemon, topped with bee pollen (!). It was advertised ‘for energy’, so I went with it (see the crumbles on top?). The taste was sweet like honey but the texture was super-chalky– couldn’t finish the juice because of it!
Finally we made it out to the trail to hike– we went to Oak Canyon Nature Center in Anaheim, and it was beautiful and peaceful, though WAY WAY too hot. I ended up just in my sports bra by the end of the hike.
We got our sweaty selves home and I immediately packed up my little puppy-charge to take back to her owner. I’ll miss that little sausage 😦
After I dropped her off, I made a trip to the local Trader Joe’s for groceries– I was fighting my cart through the aisles the whole time! Guess lots of people were stocking up for the week.
When I got home, I heated up a big bowl of my mom’s Persian barley soup– super thick and creamy and savory. I have no idea what the recipe is like but I do know I do not have the patience to make it! (good Persian food takes hours to make properly!)
Along with a glass of orange-flavored sparkling water with lemon slices!
I’m totally exhausted now from the day (I think it may also be the lack of coffee), so I’ll probably just chill here with the Hubs and snack a little more throughout the evening. Hope your day has been action-packed and enjoyable!
Question for you:
Did you have the day off today? What did you do?
