Another thing about running... does anyone get blisters on their feet? When I first starting running longer distances I got a HUGE blister on the arch of one of my feet, I had to stop running for about a week to let it heal. During that time I bought new shoes (I did not know that you should run in shoes a 1/2 size bigger than your normal size because your feet swell) and some thorlo socks. At 10.00 a pair they are not cheap but they helped a lot. The best thing I have found are these patches that you stick to the inside of your shoe wherever you are prone to blisters.
Very inexpensive and work fantastic!
When I got home from running I was starving so I drank a protein shake and has some of the gingerbread granola I made the other day with almond milk and a banana. It was so good and tastes just like the Kaia brand that is around 9.00 a bag.
1 cup sprouted buckwheat
1/2 Cup Unsweetened Coconut
1/2 Cup Raw almonds
1/4 cup maple sryrup (could use agave, honey or yacon sryrup)
1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Allspice or Nutmeg
1/4 Teaspoon Ground Cloves
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
8 medjool dates
Blend medjool dates to make a paste. Toss everything else together with the date paste and dehydrate for 4 hours or until dry at 105 degrees.
One of my favorite things to eat is seaweed salad. I usually buy sun dried wakame and make my own. I had this the other night...
4 or 5 strips wakame
1 small orange peeled and segments removed
whatever juice you can squeeze from the orange after cutting out the segments
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
dash of chinese 5 spice powder
1) soak wakame in warm water until soft
2) mix everything together and enjoy.
I have since found these kelp noodles...
The WHOLE bag only has 18 calories! I am going to have these for lunch with a miso/ nut dressing. I'll post the recipe later.
Have a great weekend!
