Cauliflower Candy

Today was a good busy day. We headed off to Lincoln Park Zoo this morning, stopped off at a beach on the way home to walk along Lake Michigan and dip our toes in the water. That means I can check one off the life goal of exploring 3 new places in Chicago this challenge. We spent around 3.5 hours walking around the zoo today in the sun.  Needless to say, I was wiped out!

However, when we got home, after a bit of rest, Jonas and I headed out for a 3.5 mile bike ride.  This brings my weekly total to 1 hour 22 minutes. I shouldn't have any issues meeting the 2 hours as tomorrow is the Tour de Highland family 8 mile ride. Tomorrow evening I'll do my 4th strength workout of the week.

Tonight for dinner I decided to cut a cauliflower up into what best can be described as cauliflower steaks and put them on the grill.  Jonas came out while I was cooking and took a piece that had fallen off from the "steak" and ate it. He said, "Mom! This tastes so good, like candy!" Score!  The kid loves veggies!

So what else did I eat today?

Noms Nommed:

  • Breakfast - Whopper with no Bun, Beef Jerky (on way to zoo)
  • Lunch - Spinach Apple Almond Salad, 1/2 Apple & Nuts (lunch at zoo)
  • Snack - Apple & Nuts (on ride home from zoo)
  • Snack - Meatloaf (pre bike ride)
  • Dinner - Lebanese Ground Beef Kebabs, Grilled Cauliflower, Onion & Zucchini

It was cauliflower for zombies, because the big, interior slices looked like slices of braaaaaaains. :)
