Peas & Pistachios!

Posted Sep 27 2012 12:20pm
I used to be injured all too frequently during my freshmen and summer into sophomore years of college.  These injuries would devastate me mentally and physically.  If I couldn’t run, I wouldn’t do anything else to compensate, which of course, made things worse for my well being!  I just finished my fourth consecutive week without running.  Besides wanting to smack every runner who I encounter enjoying the beautiful Wilmington weather, I’ve been happy, healthy and not bitter (mostly)!  My tight hamstrings have started to budge in yoga, I finished a route in the climbing gym that I’ve been working on for 5 months, I swam around 800m in the ocean yesterday, and I’m going to try running next week!  I’ve really come around full circle with adapting when I hit a road block and can’t run.  Optimistic, much? Well, today I am. Ha!

Since I feel the need to post food almost every time I post, here is my delicious lunch from a few days ago:

  • Great Harvest Pumpernickel bread
  • store-bought traditional hummus
  • avocado
  • tomato
  • grated carrots
  • homemade green pea hummus {recipe here }

I LOVE peas!  If you are a green pea lover, you definitely need to try making this hummus.  I opted for the pecorino romano version (except that I used parmesean).

I haven’t been cooking much since school started, since I climb most evenings at the climbing gym, so I don’t have time to cook when I get home so late.  But, I made a week’s worth (oops!) of pasta last night!

Whole Grain Penne with Roasted Broccoli and Pistachio Gremolata

Another serious eats favorite, of course!  Get the recipe here !

Have a great Thursday, everyone!
