Friday Five Favorite Foods

This week I made a promise to myself that we will start fueling for the marathon, and eating better.... no more do I have the "because I'm sick" excuse to stuff my face with whatever I want. So, I'm linking up with DC Trifecta Bloggers (Courtney from Eat Pray Run DC, Mar from Mar on the Run, and Cynthia from You Signed Up For What?!) to talk about food!


1. Sunday I had the best dinner ! It was a strange mix, but what I am if not a strange mix of things? I had veggie sushi and a slice of pizza. It was my last "because I'm sick" meal and it was amazing!


2. It should be no secret to anybody that I love Tacos. I grew up in Mexico, and tacos are my first love. This should also not be a shocker to anybody that Tacos in Mexico are different than what is made in this country. First I use steak, sometimes organic, sometimes flank, sometimes top round cutlets, but always steak. We pan sear our steak, chop it , add tons of onions to cook with the steak. We also add raw chopped onions, chopped cilantro, lime and home made salsa.


3. This week I made a favorite, Chicken Gyros. Except, I wasn't in the mood for pita bread, so I ate it naked!! It was so yummy! and home made Tzatziki dip.

 

Yes, I take pictures of my food and post them to Instagram!! because I am not a selfie person, but I am always willing to brag about the amazing food I eat!


4. Salad lunch- I struggle with packing lunches, so I punish myself with getting a salad... ok, you caught me, I *reward *myself with this awesome salad from Simply Turkey, a local deli that makes this salad that one can put in it whatever one's heart desires, it's called The Boss Salad , and I put the following on mine: Spring mix, baby spinach, grape tomatoes, shredded carrots, cucumbers, Kickin' bean salad, turkey, broccoli and ranch dressing.




5. And last, but never least... I'm enjoying my bagel and coffee for breakfast, because I love carbs and need coffee like I need Oxygen! I drink my coffee black, with sugar... and people who work with me say that I like my coffee, like my soul... black !



Have an awesome weekend everybody! Eat good food!

  3. Thank you Gretchen! I find myself craving sushi at the most random times! I think for me it's the wasabi and soy sauce that make it so awesome! Have an awesome weekend yourself!

  4. Wendy, it's perfectly normal to be different! I only started eating sushi last year, and only tried it because it's my fiancé's favorite food. What are other things that you like that others don't?

  6. I've actually never had sushi. Just one of things I've never had any desire to try. Tacos on the other hand, I would eat any day! Have a great weekend! -M

    1. Judy,

      I love to post pictures of random things, but have never been a fan of selfies. But when I see people posting selfies, I think how awesome! We have too many critics of our looks, and if we are feeling our look, and want to share t with the world, that gets a like from me!

      Furbabies are adorable !

  9. Sushi and pizza together are pretty strange but separately they are both good! Hey I love cilantro and want to put it in everything but my hubby hates it! :(

    1. Megan, yes it's weird, but I'm sticking to my "I was sick" story.

      I love cilantro !! But there is people who say cilantro Tastes like soap, and I heard on NPR that there is a theory that this is a genetic thing.

  11. I love sashimi, but I'm not as big on the maki (I'm not a big rice person). Hey, as long as you are getting the nutrition in, it doesn't matter how you do it!

  16. Kathryn,

    Sushi is delicious! we are picking up the bad habit to get it once a week!

  17. Chaitali,

    It's so easy to pick it up! and is not as bad as picking up a slice of pizza (like I like to do).
