Food, Cycling & Sweat

My journey to eat and live a healthy life!


with 2 comments

Ok, not a whole lot going on today in this bloggers life… Work creeps by ever so slowly, my fridge is empty so I’m literally without food today except for some remaining salad greens and an egg (and a meager portion of leftover lasagna). Can we say FOOD SHOPPING tonight?!?

Speaking of the lasagna, it was a recipe I found on the web that follows right along with clean eating. We used lean ground turkey, a healthy dose of spinach, onions, and tomatoes/tomato sauce, and some ricotta and parmesan cheese. I will say, however, that I was not impressed with the flavor combinations (it called for both nutmeg and cinnamon). So I think next time, ditch the cinnamon and spice it up a little bit with some oregano and pepper!

Here is a link to the original recipe if anyone is interested: Pasta Roll-Up’s.

And so I may save face, here is what they SHOULD have looked like! 🙂 Mine did not appear quite so delicious looking, but I’m an aspiring chef in my own kitchen and looks aren’t everything!

Well, food aside, I am hoping for some very nice weather for tomorrow as I am looking forward to FINALLY getting back down to Cooper Landing so I can bike ride the Russian Lakes trail (or part of it rather. I am not fit enough to ride the complete loop of 25+ miles!). Also in the exercise arena, monday is a Group Power class at The Alaska Club. I can’t wait!

And so, I am putting last night’s binge behind me and trudging forward with my goals. And next week is the Air Show on Elmendorf AFB and hopefully the Sunday Market as well! So I hope everyone stays on track with their goals and achieves all that they desire! Good bye for now!

  1. Nutmeg and cinnamon???? That sounds very unappealing. I would definitely go for something like oregeno, basil, italian herb seasoning etc…

    • Yea, we were just trying the recipe as it was outlined. Won’t be putting cinnamon and nutmeg in a lasagna again though! 🙂
