For some reason, my stomach is still a little unsettled. What’s strange is that I almost never have an upset stomach. With the exception of stomach aches I got after two recent runs, I don’t remember the last time I had a tummy troubles. I think it all has to do with dairy, but I usually don’t have that problem. Anyway, I’m going to try cutting down on dairy (I think the pizza + froyo combination is what did me in) and see if that helps.
After picking up some Tums at the drugstore, I felt better and ready for some exercise. I did an hour of some moderately intense ellipticalling on the Cybex Arc Trainer. I didn’t want to push myself too hard but did want to get my body moving and the blood flowing. I felt great after and ready for lunch.
We still had a leftovers from when we made Emily’s vegan bean burgers. I decided to also use up the leftover grilled ear of corn from Thursday night. I came up with the idea of a wrap with avocado and a warm corn and tomato salsa.
First I chopped up some zucchini (which Dave kindly picked up for me), grilled corn, cherry tomatoes, and red onions. I sauteed them in a little olive oil until they were soft. Then I added a touch of lime juice, cilantro (I wish I had the fresh stuff! It’s infinitely better!), garlic powder, salt and pepper.
This was so tasty! The corn was so sweet and fresh tasting and the salsa was a nice addition to the burger and avocado.
I was contemplating cherries for dessert but am so full! I guess I’ll save them for my afternoon snack. It’s another beautiful day today (temps in the low 80s, sunny, and no humidity) so I plan on making the most of this gorgeous Saturday afternoon!
