There are never enough hours in the day for me. It’s been go, go, go.
Phone calls, housework, running into stores on all my errands.
Running into tons of mangoes is a bonus.
I love summer fresh. The end of July and August is my favorite time of year for eating because of the abundance of amazing produce.
Salads with veggies are in full force.
I saw these roasted chickpeas at TJ’s yesterday which I thought would be perfect as a salad topping…
…But I didn’t buy them because I can just make my own
You’ll be glad you ran into these. And you can take them in a savory direction, too. Omit the sugar, add the savory spices you enjoy, roast. Easy!
I ran into a big bowl of popcorn with cinnamon, stevia, and nooch. Sometimes I make chocolate cheezey (noochey) popcorn but earlier it was sans chocolate.
Why no cocoa powder or chocolate chips on my popcorn?
Because I ran into a Toblerone bar.
As I said on Instagram, When all else fails, try this.
Thanks for all the great comments on my last post, Sunny. Wow! I had no idea when I posted it that it would be that popular.
But I guess talking about the sun, talking about nut butter and sunflower seed butter, and sunflower pictures has a little something for everyone. Most everyone said you love all three.
And for those of you who said you haven’t tried sunflower seed butter, I’d highly recommend giving it a whirl.
1. What or whom have you run into lately? Any awkward run into’s?
The weekend of Pride, and just days after moving into our new place, I went out for a run (still very new to my own surroundings and trying to figure out my own running path) and ran into someone I had met at Matt’s L.A. Food Styling & Photography workshop. He lives in my neighborhood. I was all hot and sweaty and was running and in my zone and actually ran past him and a few steps later I heard, “AVERIE?”
I spun around and recognized him and we chatted for a few minutes. Awkwardly.
While I tried to discreetly wipe the sweat off my face while not huffing and puffing.
And any runner knows that when you just stop, abruptly, your legs and body just feel out of whack. There’s something called a cooldown period for a reason.
And then try to make small talk with someone you don’t know very well in a cardiovascularly challenged state. Ummm, yeah. Not my finest moment.
I have been recognized by readers, for instance here or here (internationally), so I’ve run into people that way. Always fun to meet people and readers in real life, but I am never expecting it! Surprise, surprise.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’d like to go run into a cup of coffee + Baileys (it’s nonalcoholic)
And then go run into a run.
