On a side note: here’s a quick snap of my lunch this afternoon after I went running. It was my lazy version of Cauliflower Salad. I was out of avocado and ended up adding some dried dill and chopped dates (my fave). My husband and I are in a major “date phase” right now and I’m not complaining! they’re delicious and nutritious, and a great food to grab before or after I go running.
I just finished mile #53 out of the 100 miles I’ve challenged myself to run this year. I plan on staying ahead and surpassing my goal. Check out my 100 Miles post that I update weekly. All are welcome to join in any type of running/walking goal. You can join with a comment thread on the running post, email me, or make a private goal for yourself. It’s never too late to start! 🙂
Cut the apples straight across and the seeds will fall right out (and they leave an awesome flower pattern).
Date paste made with my trusty Vitamix!

I top mine with an apple slice and sprinkle on some cinnamon.
