Well I looked my demons in the eye

Well I looked my demons in the eye, laid bare my chest, said do your best, destroy me.
See I’ve been to hell and back so many times, I must admit, you kind of bore me.
-Ray LaMontagne, from Empty
This is how I felt after a pretty rough morning – couldn’t open my mouthwash because of stiff, sore hands and my walk went really slowly. It all left me feeling like, Really? This again?

So there’s some science to the obscene amounts of fish oil my naturopath has me consuming… yeah!
Marathon Training & Raw Food

Just had to share that last weekend I had a great solo run – 13.2 miles (that’s a half marathon!!) on a beautiful, dirt, hilly trail. I was running VERY slow, but I had a great time and it was FUN! Barcelona Marathon, I’m on my way!
On another note, I tried Kari Carr’s Mediterranean wrap recipe. This was my version of the cashew cheese:
Throw the following into a blender and blend until cheesy (consistency of hummus):
- 2.25 cups of raw, unsalted cashews (I didn’t presoak because (a) what does that even mean? (b) why would one do it? and (c) who has the time?
- 1 cup almond milk (I used almond milk instead of water because I thought, why not?)
- handle of Italian parsley
- sprinkle of chia seeds (they’re apparently good for you and give you energy, so this was another addition to Kris Carr’s recipe)
- sprinkle of salt & pepper
I put the “cheese”, black olives, sundried tomatoes, and pumpkin seeds, onto collard greens for a super yummy (trust me!), healthy lunch. 🙂

I’m not a big soy fan, so I would probably use eggs instead of tofu in the first recipe. Other than than that, these look awesome! I can’t wait to try making cashew cheese on my own and whipping up the Mediterranean wrap!
