Everything on Greens

I was a walking zombie this morning! Luna was up at 4:30- ready to go- ugh!

I  was so tired I actually drove to the gym this morning(lazy!) so that I could get a heavy upper body lift in before training. I knew if I walked I would have bagged the lift and I really needed it.

After the gym- I stopped at Market Basket for some much needed fruits & veggies.

When I got home I warmed up a piece of  cheddar & turkey sausage strata (I had made for dinner last night) on greens. My eyes were definitely hungrier than my stomach- I only ate about 1/3 of this piece.

It does look pretty doesn’t it & it’s 100% gluten free!

The rest of my day was filled with wedding calls, and a trip to the dealership to get ready for my trip down to PA this Friday.

For dinner- I tried something new- black bean & quinoa burgers. I had seen a recipe over the weekend and thought I would play around with the idea.
