Lunch today was a giant bowl-o-pasta. I saved the extra pasta shells I had from my marathon stuffed shell cooking session. They were only partially cooked, so I covered them in water and popped them in the microwave for a few minutes to finish the cooking process.
Meanwhile I started chopping the goods: spinach, basil, artichokes, and turkey.
I thought it looked like a Cobb salad before I stirred it all together. Maybe it’s just me.
Then I topped it off with some feta cheese, dried basil, rosemary, black pepper, and marinara sauce.
Instant pasta 🙂
Now I’m brainstorming recipe ideas for some of my new exciting veggies from my trip to Whole Foods. I have leeks, baby bok choy, and a purple sweet potato!! I’ve never made any of these things, so I can’t wait to try them out!!
I’ve also been brainstorming ways to share all the information I learned at the conference I was at last weekend. I’m going to split it into series (and combine it with some other info too!). Every Tuesday morning I’ll be sharing a random tidbit of information and a little information about it. I’m also putting together a whole Sports Nutrition Series– information on hydration, pre and post exercise fueling, types of fuel, etc.
Tomorrow will kick off the first Did You Know Tuesday! Topics I’ll be touching on are obesity in professional athletes,whether all calories are the same, caffeine, muscle loss, sports drinks, and more. I can’t wait!
