I tend to get on a kick with something I love and can't get enough. Here's what I'm adoring lately.
They say eggs are nature's perfect food, but they're also incredibly delicious and can be made so many ways. Eggs are actually a long-term obsession of mine, but since I consumed more than a dozen this week and have tried a few new preparations, they are at the top of my list.
Even when slightly under ripe, there are few things better than a mango. Living in New York City I'm a bit spoiled since sliced mango can be found at just about any deli or fruit market throughout the summer. But winter is another story. So when my local market suddenly had a surplus of mangoes I bought one and braved the process of cutting it up myself. Thanks to Alton Brown's simple method, I've been enjoying freshly cut mango all week.
(See egg photo above) Avocados are simply amazing. Mashed, sliced with a little sea salt and hot sauce, on salad, in smoothies, cubed up on top of just about anything, I could eat avocados every day. They are incredibly nutrient dense and contain a good dose of healthy fat. I do moderate the amount I eat for overall calorie control, but absolutely love them for all of the goodness they contain.
Before you think my brain is only on food, I am so in love with Pinterest. I spent hours this weekend looking at beautiful photos of beautiful things, mostly food of course.
Last week's training was a struggle. It was one of those weeks where I had to scramble to fit it all in and went from feeling amazing in one workout to miserable in the next. I skipped a swim, but we all know I'm not too torn up about it. I'm supposed to rest on Sundays but haven't yet this month so today I followed the schedule and rested. I already feel more balanced.
