Healthy. Sometimes, its not always about nutrition and fitness. Sometimes, its about getting out with your friends, leaving stress behind and making corny jokes. Well, that’s what I did yesterday and it was amazing!
First we stopped by iCantina Tortilla Grill, a place I’ve never been, to grab a fish taco…which was alright. The fact they only give you one taco for 5 bucks is a little expensive. But 1 was enough.
The Fish Taco has spicy slaw, a (piece) of avocado, sauce, and baked tilapia that has been marinated in butter. Like oh my gosh, butter! Whatevs
We shared some chips, which you had to buy. Look, most Mexican restaurants I go to, they serve you unlimited amounts of chips for free. What’s up with having to buy $3 worth of chips, which is hardly any! They were good though.
We headed to the Birmingham Museum of Art afterward, which my 19 years of living in Alabama, I’ve never stepped foot in there. Never cared too…so sad! The European 17th-18th century art and sculptures were probably my favorite part. It was just way too beautiful.
Some views from the inside windows
We couldn’t take pictures of the artwork…so you will have to suffice with trees and glass windows.
Stopped at my favorite coffee shop, The Red Cat, afterward and shared a scone and brownie.
On my way back home, I finally stopped at Dick’s Sporting Goods and got myself a new pair of running shoes! My feet shall thank me today as I run!
For dinner last night, I opened a can of chickpeas and chopped some fresh veggies to put on a bed of Arugula with a little vinaigrette drizzled on top.
And now this morning, I just had this delicious Green smoothie! Excuse my desk mess in the background…
- 8oz Unsweetened Almond Milk
- Big Handfuls of Kale and Swiss Chard
- 6 Cubes of Ice
- 1 Tbsp. of Ground flax seed
- 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder
- 1/2 Tbsp. organic creamy Peanut butter
- 1 tsp. Maca Powder
- 1 small frozen banana
- 3 frozen strawberries
- Dash of Cinnamon
Have a Healthy Day!
