I couldn't think of a better way to start my week and the new month!
Let's welcome October and this beautiful Monday upon us with a little Marvelous Monday celebration!
It's my parents' 29th wedding anniversary today! I think this is pretty marvelous, so I'm sending out a big Happy Anniversary hug to my two favourite people <3
My trainer requested that I have red meat 2 – 3 times/week, so I bought a bison ribeye steak at the farmer's market on the weekend. I wasn't too sure how I'd enjoy it since I am not a huge red meat lover, but I threw it on the grill and grilled it up! To my surprise, I actually really enjoyed it; especially when I scrambled it with an egg and jalapenos!
I now have ground bison thawing for me to cook up tomorrow! I'm thinking I'll make some meatballs
Foodie Friends & Fresh
On Friday, my friends and I went to Toronto for a conference about dietetics. After the conference, we went to Fresh for dinner! I had been to Fresh before with Christina and loved it, so I was really excited to go again!
I ordered a salad with avocado, cucumber, tomato, carrot, red pepper, greens, hemp seeds, marinated tofu, and chickpeas tossed in their wild ginger dressing. If you ever come visit me I promise that I'll take you to this restaurant Definitely a favourite of mine!
I was also really happy that they offered almond milk, so I treated myself to a latte made with almond milk. The first few sips were amazing, but then I started to find it too sweet for my liking.
I've been liking simple breakfasts lately. I haven't made fancy schmancy pancakes or parfaits for a while because I cannot get enough of my eggy oatbran! I cook oatbran with some water and 1/4 cup eggwhites in the microwave for a few minutes and then enjoy it with some almond milk! So simple, but so good!
Beautiful Fall Weather
Today we had absolutely gorgeous weather here in London. Not a cloud in the sky or a breeze in the air!
Pools of Yolk
This was last night's bedtime snack. I was in food heaven! Nothing beats a runny yolk
I have a hard time not including DAVIDsTEA in my Marvelous Monday posts. Today I sat outside of DAVIDsTEA and worked hard on my homework! I was very productive while sipping their new flavour of the month, Organic Stormy Night. If your wanting to make your first DAVIDsTEA purchase, I highly recommend including this tea in your order! I will be doing a full review of it in the future, but if the flavours of chocolate, coconut, cinnamon, and vanilla are appealing to you, you will love this tea!
It's Thanksgiving weekend this coming weekend here in Canada and I am going home to celebrate with my family I'll be leaving bright and early Friday morning and heading back to London on Tuesday, but it's so worth it. I miss these guys way too much.
What was marvelous about your Monday?
