This salad is not for the faint of heart!!!!
After seeing the lovely Leah dress one of her fabulous salads in salsa, I knew I had to try it out!
The object of today’s lunch was all about post-workout fuel.
The delicious PC organic salsa in mild:
1 week and still going strong!
Ok, are you ready for this?
- almost 2 full hearts of PC organic romaine
- 1 cup chickpeas
- 1 cup organic wheat berries
- 1/2 tomato
- ground black pepper
- 1/2 cup organic PC salsa in mild
- Kraft Light Balsamic
- 2 T sunflower seeds
With some homemade tortilla chips (using a 12-grain country harvest tortilla sprinkled with paprika) and an orange:
I ate almost all the salad (see below), the whole orange, and only a few tortilla chips. My tummy was pretty darn full and happy after this lunch!! :)
Yogi Tea Quote of the day:

- 1 scoop Hemp protein powder
- 1 1/4 cup Almond breeze
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 2 ice cubes
- 1 T almond butter (sooo amazing!)
Soooooo good!! :)
He gets the easy part- cruising along beside me while I run! lol.
I wanted to mention a couple things today:
1. KNEE SLEEVES rock my world!
I haven’t said much about the knee sleeves since I got them, but they have cured my knee pain. I have no knee pain whatsoever when I wear them. It is a dream come true!!! I highly recommend them. Also, mine were too tight when I got them, but they have since stretched out a bit are fit me like a glove now. :)
2. LACE LOCKING TECHNIQUE rocks my world!!!
I am so happy I switched to the lace locking method! My shoes fit like a glove now and I am able to lace them very tight. Tight shoe = no slippage = no blisters! :)
3. ELECTRICAL TAPE rocks my world!
No, I don’t have home renos on the brain. I have been using electrical tape (the black smooth stuff) to cover my moleskin and it works like a charm. The tape is soft enough that it doesn’t ‘cut into’ my skin and not too sticky so it removes easy. I put the moleskin over the blister prone area (with a circle cut out for the blister) and then I put some electrical tape across it to hold it in. Since I have been doing this, I have had no pain or new blisters. The only problem is Eric keeps asking where his tape is…..lol!

Eric said yesterday that he notices that my body has toned up since I have been doing strength training on a regular basis- sweet! It makes me want to stick with it. It just goes to show that even just 5 minutes a day makes huge changes.
I feel so happy after this workout! The endorphins are cranking through my system. I feel a lot better today. I had some of my new liquid garlic (I actually doubled my dose yesterday) and it all but took my cold symptoms away! Truly amazing stuff! I slept straight through the night last night and just feel like myself again.
Off to bake + clean + laundry!
