Running after Dinner

Remember ants on a log?

Such a classic.  I’ve actually never been a big fan of celery, that is until I realized how versatile it is as a dipper. Cue delicious peanut butter. 🙂

In efforts to eat more veggies, I got a stalk of celery at the grocery store to have as a snack. I made sure to wash and cut it all up so it would be easy access and not go to waste. I enjoyed these ants on a log after my hearty dinner last night.

For this salad, I used kale and butter leaves as the base. Then I threw in grape tomatoes, black beans, avocado, heart of palm, beats, salsa, garlic powder, salt and pepper, pepper flakes, and goat cheese. I used pesto as a salad dressing.

The polenta was really easy to make. I just sliced it and cooked it in olive oil on the stove. These would make great bases for pizza.

I went for a run shortly after consuming my weight in cheese eating dinner and it was not an enjoyable feeling to say the least!

Question: How long do you wait for your food to digest before hitting the gym or running?

 

Have an awesome weekend!
