It was Wednesday, and I needed a healthy, hearty meal to boost me and Mr. PT through the rest of the week. I must be going through a spinach phase because I keep on buying it at the store and finding new ways to eat it. Last week I ate it for lunch with goat cheese, walnuts, and a balsamic dressing (yum!). On Thursday I used it as a post-run snack by wrapping it around pepperoni slices (different, but still yum!).
Wednesday night I threw it in my wok with some of my favorite vegetables (eggplant, zucchini, mushrooms, onions, green/red pepper, sun dried tomatoes), spices and olive oil.
I finished the dish by cooking up some whole grain couscous and mixing it all together. It was delicious! Although looking back, I wish I had drizzled in some balsamic vinegar while I was tossing all the ingredients together at the end. Oh well, next time! And with spinach in the fridge, there will be a next time!
Combine with some serious abs. Put your timer on for 30 minutes. Spend 5 minutes warming up with some stretching, then get right into it. 20 minutes of nothing but abs, no stopping! Find some ideas HERE. Then finish up with 5 minutes of stretching. You can do it!
