It is HOTTTT today – went for a jog/walk around 11am and I think it was at least 90 degrees! I was gone for about an hour and covered a little over 4 miles – I alternated jogging and walking and made sure to stop at every water fountain along the way. My route is blessed with three, thank goodness! Forgot to wear sunscreen, so my face has natural blush now…I’ve got to get better about that!
I had a later lunch around 1:30, and tried something new after being inspired by the tofu/egg sandwich on Trying for a Tri‘s blog today. Here’s my version:
Cheesy Tofu/Egg Panini
– 1/4 block extra firm tofu
– drizzle low sodium soy sauce
– 1 egg
– 1 slice Whole Wheat Tuscan Pane bread
– smear of Earth Balance margarine
– sprinkle of light mozzarella cheese
Saute tofu with soy sauce on medium heat (this is 1/2 block – I cooked extra for later). While tofu is cooking, fry egg in separate pan using nonstick cooking spray. Cut bread in half and spread margarine.
Assemble panini and place on heated panini-maker
I received this as a wedding gift, but this is the first time I’ve used it in at least a year. Glad I remembered I had it!
The finished product
The cheese was perfectly melty and I liked the combo of egg and tofu. Now that I’ve remembered my panini maker, expect to see a few more sandwiches. I also had a side of sauteed green beans with olive oil & balsamic vinegar.
Simple but delish!
After lunch, I messed around online for a bit and then showered! Yeah for clean hair and shaved legs…haha. I’m going to run a few errands, but had a quick smoothie to keep my energy up and beat the heat:
It’s a lower calorie version of my peanut butter banana smoothie recipe. I used 70 g frozen banana, 1/2 cup unsweetened almond breeze, 10 g peanut butter, and 1/4 scoop protein powder. Perfect for this hot day!
