After my last entry, I went for a good run and when I came back, I was looking at my SparkPage. I've pretty much reached the goals I set for myself. Now it's time to refresh those goals and have some new challenges to work toward! I was thinking of joining a group challenge, but those aren't really for me.
New Goal #1: Eat dark leafy greens once per day (at least).
Dark leafy greens are very good for you, but I don't eat them regularly. Making a pointed effort to become more familiar with different greens sounds like a good idea. Kale, collards and spinach are on sale now so I'll be starting with those. Of course I've eaten them in the past, but having more than one or two ways to fix something sounds like a good idea. I like variety and if something becomes boring, I just won't eat it.
The last two recipes I've made: "Sesame scrambled tofu with sweet potatoes and kale" from Vegan Brunch by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and, from the same book, "Sauteed Collards with Sausages" (homemade, vegan sausages!) and for an extra bonus I added a can of white beans. Good stuff. Oh, and a fall stew with butternut squash, lentils and spinach from the book Chloe's Kitchen by Chloe Coscarelli. Also delish.
What to make next. . .
My second new goal is to run 13.1 miles. This goal will take a while to reach, but that's okay. I'm patient (except when it comes to the scale! Ha). For the very near future, though, I'm just getting back to running 5-7 miles regularly.
