Hello again, avocado toast, my old friend.
I’ve missed you.
If you don’t usually have arugula with your avocado toast, try it! Adds a little more volume and a nice extra peppery flavor.
It has been nice getting back to cooking for ourselves after a lot of travel!
The meal winner of the week was this delicious pork, noodle, and kale dish we had on Tuesday night.
It was a Sun Basket (
The key was that instead of using water like the recipe called for, I used broth. That’s my go to tip for making rich sauces/broths – use chicken bone broth instead of water. The mouthfeel was so much more rich and delicious.
Another yummy dinner this week was a simple rice and pan seared chicken with an onion, celery, and pineapple salsa.
I did have some good meals out this week though, too!
My father-in-law is in town (my mother-in-law also comes today!) and yesterday we took Riese to lunch at Stomping Ground in Del Ray. Their cobb salad is super good – loved the green goddess dressing!
Last night, I went to a dinner meet up that my friend Heather hosted for fellow intuitive eating/weight-inclusive dietitians in the DC area. (For more on weight-inclusive nutrition, check out Heather’s website.)
We met at Lyon Hall, and I shared some fries with the group and then got the burger + salad for my meal, which hit the spot. Great to meet some more fellow local RDs, too!
I was back at Stomping Ground super early this morning with my friend Chelsea – quiche + salad + a latte, yum!
We met up for an extra-early hot yoga class so we’d have time for breakfast after before continuing our days. It was really great to catch up with her – we meet up every week for early workouts but don’t usually have much time to chat afterwards!
I went to two other yoga classes this week… I was really craving it after all the travel and skiing last week!
Have a great day, friends, and I’ll see you back here on Monday!
Share with me a fun workout or a great meal you had this week! Anyone else love getting back into a routine? Vacation is awesome, but it’s always nice to get back into the swing of normal life, too. 🙂
