Breeze Salad & Cheese Less Veggie Quesadillas

This morning I can say, Mike and I went for a walk around the neighborhood together. It’s something we haven’t done in a while, and it’s something Mike did on his brand new bike. He’s like a kid in a candy shop after buying his used trail bike. 

Since I haven’t been able to get a Pilates schedule, I’ve decided to walk around the neighborhood for my exercise. This weekend I got back into the groove!!

After my walk, got home to take a shower and hit the road to Orlando. Mike wanted to get to his favorite restaurant, Bahama Breeze for his Chicken Kabobs and St. Thomas Crab Claws.

 I have to admit, I did have 3 of those Crab Claws before my Breeze Salad and Cheese less Veggie Quesadillas arrived. I was proud of myself, usually I get my Bahama Rita drink and this time I ordered Water with a Lemon.

Then we battled the rain to head over to Whole Foods where I got some Dried Cranberries, Raisins and some new TPV. Mike wanted to return the Honey I picked up a while back because it started crystallizing (not a good sign).

After engaging the navigation system, we found a Costco down in Orlando and picked up some more Agave and some other goods and headed home in the rain. By the time we got home, the rain had stopped and we were able to get all the groceries out without getting soaked.!!!

Dinner was a mix of my Fresh Vegetable Salad, which I packed full of the leftover Kidney Beans and left over Chick Peas from the other day. Mike made his Potato Medley Grill.

After dinner we did the usual 60 Minutes and then Desperate Housewives. But afterwards, ABC aired something a little different. A show with Jamie Oliver called “Food Revolution”, where he goes to Huntington, W.V. and tries to reteach the way these people eat. Huntington was rated the city with the most obese people and city with horrible eating habits in the U.S. Very interested how the schools, families and community are killing themselves with all the fried, processed foods they’re eating.

I went to my Pilates Class this morning at 8am and was a little disappointed in the class itself. I was expecting to get my cardio going and work my body… but what we did was deep stretching.

The class this morning started at 7am and ran until 9am. It started with a warm up and a run for 45 minutes and back to the studio.  I elected not to do the run and got to the class at 8am hoping for a workout.  Well, I should have gone on the run to get my cardio. I found out some of the other women walked for 45 minutes, which I could have done too!!!

Regardless, it was good to stretch out some of my achy zones anyway.

I really didn’t feel like doing anything spectacular for lunch… so I just had the left over Garden Salad I made earlier this week and some Pizza from Yesterday.

I had some last minute groceries to grab for some company coming into to town tonight. A girlfriend and her daughter are coming for a visit this weekend and I’m pre making some dishes. This particular friend of mine got me started on the Raw Foods Diet, so I’m prying open my cookbook to make some meals.

On the menu….

Almond Butter

Better Than Tuna

Avocado Slices

Strawberry Pie

Date-Pecan Wedges

Very excited to create all of these items while they are here.

Mike chimed in as well, and made a Roasted Eggplant with Potatoes (a dish my girlfriend loves.) I went ahead and had that for dinner tonight!
