6 miles this morning after getting an amazing amount of sleep. I think I nodded off around 8:30 pm last night! Felt so good to catch some more zzz’s.
Post run yoga session and legs up on the wall. Much needed. I definitely need to do the legs up the wall thing a lot more. This is a great restorative pose to keep help with recovery and circulation.
So today I thought I’d share a few items I purchased on my grocery haul this week. This Trader Joe’s is a bit closer to my job so I love stopping by there on the way home sometimes. It always feels like a fun field trip of sorts. Yes I have an exciting life.
–Spaghetti squash. Not sure what my fascination is with squash lately but it’s just an easy staple to have around the house. Plus it’s filling and so darn good for you. Nice alternative to pasta too. I made it with jalapeño chicken sausage last night. Perfection.
–Dark sweet cherries. These babies are fantastic in smoothies and actually just as a snack. They remind me of frozen grapes a little bit…nature’s candy.
–Chile lime chicken burgers. I have not tried these just yet but am planning on whipping ‘em up this week. Nice little protein boost. I will report back.
–Wild arugula…good alternative to spinach…definitely planning on whipping up some lunches with this stuff.
–Cut up butternut squash. As I mentioned in this post I love that this takes a lot of the prep work out. Plus hello, butternut squash mac n cheese is the best comfort food out there. Need I say more?
–Chipotle salsa. This has such a good kick of zesty spice and a smokey flavor at the end. Great with tortilla chips too. I may have to make some crockpot salsa chicken with this one.
–TJ’s wine. Charles Shaw, I love you. The merlot is great but this week I’ll be trying some shriaz on Wine Wednesday after I teach my spin class. We’ll see how it goes.
Do you have a Trader Joe’s where you live? Have you discovered any fun finds?
