Taste the Rainbow

Unfortunately, I didn't eat an entire bag of Skittles yesterday, or even a Skittle, for that matter.


But, I did fill my day with some particularly colorful fruits and veggies.  
peppers tomato sauce
peppers sweet potato carrots
peppers  bananas
spinach green beans 
Yes, I am allowed to combine blue and indigo.  I did it in elementary school with my Crayolas, and I am doing it again now.  Deal with it.  

I didn't run in the morning, so I had a few extra minutes to prepare a breakfast.  

Lunch was a combo of left overs.  The roasted green beans were even better the next day.

For dinner, I made one of Emily's newest recipes-spicy sausage and eggplant spaghetti bake (click *here* for the recipe) .  This was absolutely delicious and worth the extra steps.  I made a few modifications (decreased the parmesan cheese by 1/4 C, switched out spaghetti for elbow macaroni, and switched out marinara sauce for plain tomato sauce) only because of what I had on hand.

I knew that I shouldn't have delayed my run until after work, because when I walked in the door it took every ounce of self control I had to go upstairs and lace up my Nikes instead of sitting on the couch and catching up on my DVR.  I only managed to squeak out 3 miles while watching Glee, but it was better than the alternative.  

Thought for the day

Daily points (31) + Running Points (6) - Eating Points (35) = 2
Weekly points (49) - Mon (5) - Tues (10) + Wed (2) = 36
