Heyo!!! How is everyone’s weekend going? I will keep this short. Why? Because I instruct you to go soak up some of your weekend once you’re done reading :)
I got my eggs and biscuits!
My tummy was still off for the most part of the day, but I could at least still fill it with good stuff. Including my homemade rosemary yogurt biscuits. Sara and I have nearly demolished the whole batch already.
Eggs were scrambled with a little butter, pepper and half and half. Avec du crispy chicken bacon!
And citrus. Whether juice or whole, there must always be citrus.
I piled the eggs and bacon on the biscuits. This was an amazing combo. Biscuits > english muffins. Just sayin!
Shortly after my sister woke up and reminded me we’d planned on running this morning. Damn. It was cold, and raining, and I was just not into it. Somehow, she convinced me out. It was so humid it felt like I was running through pea soup. Pretty sure I wheezed the whole time and had to take a couple walk breaks. Got through the 4-ish miles though. Thank you to my sis for hauling my butt out. But I was damn glad when it was over ;)

For lunch, I mixed up a heaping scoop of unflavoured soy protein powder, cocoa powder, stevia, almond milk, a tbsp almond butter and a banana. This was a lot of chocolate, even for me. It’s just too tempting sometime to eat chocolate for a meal! It was however very filling :)
After this Sara and I hit the road to visit an old friend outside of the city. We munched on a special Luna bar in the car.
Chocolate Raspberry is not available in Canada, I had my girl Holly smuggle it in for me.
One of my top fave flavours!
Even though we feasted on some delicious hamburgers at our friend’s place, Sara and I were still a little snacky later on.
We picked up some Tartinade au Tofu aka Tofu spread ;) I am obsessed with tofu in spreadable form.
And dill cheddar!
Solid snackage happening here folks. However, it was more like an appetizer to things to come…
My first gelato ever!! I’ve never had the opportunity to try it in during my sheltered Maritime upbringing. As soon as I saw Pure Gelato on Elgin Street, I told Sara it was meant to be. I’m not a huge fan of ice cream because it is too sweet and creamy for me, but gelato is made with a lower butterfat and sugar content. I went for cinnamon, apple pie and pistachio.
Sara got hazelnut, chocolate mint and pina colada.
Excitement!!! We both agreed that pistachio was the best, closely followed by hazelnut. I did indeed enjoy it more than ice cream, and it took all my strength not to get it in a waffle cone (despite the differences, it seems gelato is similar in calories to ice cream). My new place in Toronto is apparently close to a gelato place. Danger!
Okee dokie bloggie friends. I am off to cuddle up with the sis and watch Alias. Now you go off and enjoy your free time!! xoxo
Question of the Day: Ice cream, gelato or frozen yogurt? Favourite flavour? So far I love real frozen yogurt the best, with fresh raspberries mixed in.
