Soy Times Two
I’m not really sure what I was thinking, but I guess I was thinking you could eat the pods…like snap peas. Then I saw they were kind of fuzzy and really tough. I guess you have to pop them out of the pods to get to the yumminess.
For the second time, I’m not really sure what I was thinking with lunch. I’m not sure fake meat product + soybeans = well balanced meal. Oh well, whatever.
I’m not a huge fan of fake meat products in general. Usually I draw the line at black bean burgers and tofu. To me, those two things aren’t trying to replicate other foods. I get a little weary when a product claims it tastes just like the real thing. If I wanted to taste the real thing, I might eat the real thing!! I don’t really care for the taste of meat, so I guess that makes it a little different, but still, anytime something is trying to be something it’s not, I wonder what it’s made of. Some of the fake products have more unnatural stuff in them than you could imagine. Anyway, occasionally I like them for their convenience, like the chicken nuggets 🙂
Look at the pretty soy beans! They’re so cute 🙂
Plus some Thin Mints. That definitely rounds the meal out 🙂 All the other Girl Scout cookies names have changed since I was a Girl Scout. Whatever happened to good old fashioned Samoas and Tag-alongs?! What was wrong with those names?!
Although I’m in pretty good shape soreness-wise after Sunday, my feet are definitely feeling a little bruised and battered, so I decided to hold off running another day and hopped in the pool instead.
I swam some laps (I absolutely cannot count laps- I always loose count). Then tried some water running. Once I got over feeling like an idiot, it was actually kind of fun. I felt like a little kid playing in the pool. It was tiring too!! Perfect though- just like running but my feet never have to touch the ground. Swimming made me realize how neglected more poor arms have been with all this running. I used the foam weights I was using as floaties to do a few arm exercises, then hopped in the whirlpool- oh that felt so good!! Then I did a little foam rolling and headed home for a snack:
Hummus and carrots. I think I need to re-blend the hummus with some more liquid…
I’m about to attempt to install a new router to see if it will help my internet issues. I’m not technologically inclined, so this could be interesting. I hope I can get reconnected!!
