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?
