We took a break on the Pearl St. pedestrian mall between hikes 2 and 3 and met my parents (who are in town for the month) for a happy hour drink/snack. I got a no-jito, my new favorite pregnancy drink. It's a little too sweet to be paleo, but it's mostly just lime juice, club soda, and mint, so I try not to feel too bad about the added sugar. Especially on a 3-hike day. Also got some spicy habanero pork tacos (no tortilla or cheese) - a little painful but very tasty! I'm very glad that I've had minimal pregnancy heartburn and can eat as much spicy food as I like. It's a great strategy for cooling off in hot weather!
I didn't take any pictures of the beautiful scenery we saw on our hikes because I don't like to carry anything (including a camera) with me on short hikes. But I did get a couple of unrelated pictures.
Mike's back at a coffee shop:
Pretty elite. He's been following a strength program and getting his nutrition dialed over the last couple of months and it shows.
My nails painted in a festive glittery blue:
I went pretty hard yesterday, given the sun and the heat, so today I'm not working out and focusing on getting some work stuff accomplished.
- Crab cakes from Everyday Paleo. More evidence that you can always find a way to capture the essence of your favorite foods without resorting to the poison trifecta of grains, legumes, and dairy. I love crab cakes, and guess what, they don't have to have cracker crumbs to hold them together.
