Today started pretty early: At 6:30 I had two nice slices of cinnamon challah! bread with peanut butter and extra cinnamon. It was delicious, but sadly, unpictured. Maybe next time!
Then I went for a 30 minute swim (I figure about 800 meters). I alternated between front stroke, back stroke and the breast stroke. I'm sort of a beginner... I mean I know how to swim the strokes and stay afloat, but I am looking to build up some major endurance. I was able to get to 3 lengths of the pool (front stroke) without stopping and I was able to do 5 lengths of the breaststroke without stopping. This was my second day of swimming, so I was pretty happy with how I did this morning!
After swimming and getting cleaned up, I went to work. At about 11am I was ravenous, so I feasted on maybe a cup of red curried vegetables with about a cup of white rice (I know, I know, white rice.... I made do with what I had..). It satisfied me for the time being.
At about 2:00pm, I had a half of a sweet potato with jazzed up broccoli (1c) and 1-1.5 oz of feta cheese. It was really good!
Ok, I know this may look kinda weird, maybe a little gross, but I swear it was tasty. I froze a banana, then melted some ~1T dark chocolate chips with some coconut milk. Then I covered the banana with the melted chocolate mixture. In hindsight, I would definitely recommend a skewer of some sort!
A little while later, I cooked up some red fried rice based off of a Moosewood cookbook recipe:
