SOUPER SUNDAY! Yam & Black Bean Soup with Massaged Kale Salad

1

Warning: may cause a musical of toot-trumpets…eat amongst close friends and/or worst enemies.

Fall Sundays are brimming with tradition at the Casa de EatPlantsLive. The timeline goes like this:

8:00 AM – Arise from slumber

8:30 AM – drink 8 oz lemon water followed by 24 oz of water and prep pour-over coffee

8:45 – 9:00 AM: Body functions

9:00 AM: Ezekiel raisin english muffins topped with almond butter and banana (the perfect pre-workout fuel)

9:30 – 11:00 AM: ‘Long’ run: 6 – 10 miles

12:00 PM: It’s HEMP LATTE DAY! Thanks Good Bean for accommodating

12:30 – 5:00 PM: Read magazines and watch trilogies+. Last weekend was Bourne movies, before that the Matrix movies, before that X-man. Others include: Harry Potter, Wes Anderson, Star Wars, Batman, Die Hard, Pirates of the Caribbean, Indiana Jones, The Godfather, and (my personal favorite) Lord of the Rings.

5:00 PM: Weekly beer! Oh yeah, beer only happens during training season on Sundays. Our main point of excitement.

6:00 PM: SOUP DINNER!

6:30 – 9:00 PM: Weekly goal setting – workouts, writing, meditation, etc

9:00 PM: Bedtime

Don’t hate on bedtime. I’m excited to say that at 31, I’m finally feeling like I’m growing into the age that I actually feel…well, whatever age where it becomes acceptable to go to sleep at 9:00 on a weekend, wear moomoo’s around the house, and complain about not understanding youth culture.

As for the food – shout out to one of my FAVORITE cookbooks, Appetite for Reduction, for the great recipe that was delicious and nutrition and lasted us all week for leftovers. Follow the linked titles to the easy-to-make recipes.

Have a great week my friends!

Vegetables come in many forms. We prefer ours liquified and ‘hopped’ up. (EY YO!)
