Starting off with Monday: Naan Caprese pizza:
Complete with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and fresh basil. It was delicious!!! And I had lots of good leftovers for the week.
For our next meal we made grass-fed burgers with Gouda goat cheese, Brussels sprouts and roasted potatoes!
YUM!!!! Great burger! It was funny because I (without realizing it) had 3 days of no meat. On Tuesday I started feeling kinda weird (almost like I had no energy) and I wondered why. As soon as I ate the meat, I felt a hundred times better. I wonder if I had a protein deficiency? Or iron deficiency? I know you can get good protein from other sources (cheese, eggs, nuts), but I think I just didn't realize I wasn't eating meat, so I kinda forgot to get it in in other places.
How do you get protein into your diet? How much protein do you eat a day?
And for my final homemade meal of the week so far (and the best in my option) was this recipe from Cooking Light.
Chicken Piccata with orzo and sauted kale. This recipe was so easy and inexpensive. I just LOVED it! As I was making it, the sauce appeared to not be enough, but the chicken and rice really absorbed the flavor well. I highly recommend this recipe!!!
As for running, I ran 6 miles on the treadmill today in 52 minutes and 30 seconds. I felt strong and fast. I think I will be ready to kick off my racing season this Sunday!! Stay tuned for Saturday's post as I prepare for my race on Sunday. Hope you had a great week!!!
