I didn’t realize just how important my salsa is to me until I tried to decide what to make for dinner. I’m in a total food rut without it! Ah well, at least tomorrow is grocery day.
By the way, salsa is super healthy and goes great on almost EVERYTHING! Especially since most of what I eat is Tex-Mexish ;) I make a batch of it weekly, but sometimes I run out a day or 2 early. Here’s my recipe:
- 8 to 10 Roma tomatoes
- 1 large red onion
- bunch of cilantro
- 2 jalapenos, seeded
- juice of 1 lime
Basically you just chop everything into whatever size consistency you like. I tend to quarter everything, throw it in my Ninja, and give it about 10 taps. I like my salsa really chunky.
- Breakfast: 2 cups coffee with Cafe Mocha
- Brunch: Amy’s Mexican Casserole w/guacamole. 2 cups coffee with Cafe Mocha
- Snack: 6 Oreo cookies
- Dinner: Salad (shredded lettuce w/diced tomatoes, celery, onions) with Tahini Lime Sauce, sesame sticks and pistachios.
3 mile “recovery” run.
Yeah, my recovery run was longer than my long run yesterday – Ha!
Oh, and I “won” a Garmin 210 on Ebay yesterday so I’ll finally be able to unstrap the giant computer from my wrist! The Nike+ app that I used last week is pretty accurate, but is a big drain on my battery. And besides, I like to keep my phone in front of me when I’m on the treadmill – easier to mess with music that way!
