Veggie sandwiches will always hold a special place in my heart.
On one of our first dates—even before Craig and I were dating—I flew out to Portland to visit Craig where he was going to school. Craig had a hike planned for us in the mountains outside Portland for the day, so we packed a lunch that included: veggies sandwiches, blue chips, apples, and a orange-ginger cookie to share. (Yes, I still remember all the details. 😉 )
spinach + avocado + muenster cheese + tomatoes + green onion + cucumber sandwiched between my homemade bread
I also had some blue chips on the side—gotta stay with the theme.
For dessert, I had a cone filled with one serving of ice cream.
This was the first time I have purchased Alden’s brand of ice cream. Sadly, I had higher hopes. It was good, but it didn’t have that traditional Oreo flavor I was craving since Oreos are would not be all-natural. But it is still ice cream and even bad ice cream is still good ice cream in my book. 😉After my late lunch, I ran some errands. I made a stop at the local running store to check out their compression socks. The guy helping me offered to measure the circumference of my calf so I would know what size I needed. I hiked up my pants and was instantly embarrassed when I saw the forest growing on my legs! Ahhh!! How did I let that happen? Obviously I have been too busy to shave my legs recently–oops! Sorry Skinny Raven employee!!
When I got back home, I finally had a chance to jump in the shower and get ready for the
day evening. (Gosh, I sound like the grimiest person ever.) By then, my stomach was in need of some more food. It’s incredible how much running amps up my appetite!
yogurt + granola
I topped my yogurt with Cascadian Farm Dark Chocolate Almond Granola. Seriously, what a great excuse to eat dark chocolate in the morning (or the afternoon in my case)!
This granola is not super chocolatey. You could definitely taste the chocolate bits every now and then, but it didn’t take away from the traditional granola flavors. Overall, super crunchy and delicious.
I topped this bad boy with a million different things:
Craig and I are off to a wedding reception for the evening. See ya tomorrow!
