My 6-day weekend has finally come to an end. If you missed any of my posts, here’s a couple of recaps.
A couple highlights from the past two days:
Even though it was a holiday weekend, that didn’t deter me from getting a long run in on Saturday morning.
Distance: 11 miles
Weather: cold and cloudy, 20 degrees
My body does do well in cold weather!! Somehow I managed to run 11 miles on Saturday, but it was sure slow going!! My body and muscles get so stiff and tight during the winter when it is so cold. I probably ran at about a 9:00 minutes/mile pace, which is about one minute slower than my normal pace during the warmer months. Needless to say, it wasn’t that great of a run.
While on my run, naturally I was planning what I wanted to eat for my second breakfast of the day. The usual did not sound appetizing: cereal, yogurt, eggs, but then I thought about pancakes and couldn’t get them off my mind. So when I got back, I whipped up some pancakes–vegan pancakes to be exact!!
(Based off this recipe.)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup soymilk
1 tablespoon canola oil
1. Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
2. Combine the wet ingredients in a separate bowl, and then add to the dry ingredients.
3. Heat non-stick skillet on stove top and spoon batter into pan.
4. Flip and cook on the other side.
I topped mine with pumpkin, pecans, coconut, and pure maple syrup. My mouth in watering just thinking about it again!
Saturday night we had a get-together to go to, so naturally I made a dessert!
I’m always a little worried when I make a new recipe, but have no fear!
These were ah-mazing!! I couldn’t believe how delicious they were!!! And they were vegan to boot!!
The rest of my weekend was filled with running errands, cleaning, and laundry–all that fun stuff. Actually, I enjoy doing those things, so it doesn’t bother me. I like to have all my ducks in a row before going into the week.
What is your favorite thing to bring to a potluck?
