1. For drinking: Starbucks “blonde roast” coffee. I generally don’t get coffee at Starbucks because I find it way too bitter and strong. But their new blonde roast is really good – way more mellowed out. My coworker brought it to work on Tuesday and then sent me home with a sample pack. Now I would actually buy coffee at Starbucks!
2. For eating: wheat tortilla with peanut butter and sesame seeds. A great snack or part of lunch. The sesame seeds give a nice crunch – plus, they are crazy good for you. From whfoods.com:
Not only are sesame seeds a very good source of manganese and copper, but they are also a good source of calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1, zinc and dietary fiber. In addition to these important nutrients, sesame seeds contain two unique substances: sesamin and sesamolin. Both of these substances belong to a group of special beneficial fibers calledlignans, and have been shown to have a cholesterol-lowering effect in humans, and to prevent high blood pressure and increase vitamin E supplies in animals. Sesamin has also been found to protect the liver from oxidative damage.
3. For watching: Gilmore Girls, season 3. I’m watching the entire series while I run. I just started season 3 and I’m definitely hooked. The first season was “meh,” but it keeps getting better as it goes!
4. For doing: downward dog. My back has been a little sore (improper baby-holding technique, probably) and my legs are very tight (yesterday’s long run). Downward dog feels so so good!
