I hope everyone had an amazing Memorial Day weekend! Mine was spent with friends, including a small adventure in mountain biking with the boyfriend where we learned that a “short ways” in biker speak equals four miles straight up hill. More on that later.
Last week I mentioned that a Paleo Food Cart had set up shop near my work. My co-worker, who also happens to be into Paleo Food (and even brought me amazing homemade Korean Short Ribs today), and I decided to check it out. The Caveman Cafeteria is located on 16th and Larimer, if you happen to be in Denver, and features a small variety of delicious Paleo foods, including veggie sides and even a dessert now and then.
I got the steak and coconut kale. At first glance it doesn’t seem like a lot of food, but buried under that kale was so much steak! I was definitely full and very satisfied the rest of the afternoon.
Does anyone else have trouble remembering to drink the full gallon of water that is recommended for active people? I personally have the worlds smallest bladder (TMI?), so I used to purposely not drink much so I didn’t have to get up every 10 minutes. I’m trying to get better at it so I’ve set a timer on my phone that goes off every 3 hours. If I haven’t drank my full 32 ounce Nalgene by then, it’s chugging time. Luckily, back in the day I was a regular winner of the “chick chug” at the local bar, so I’ve had some practice at this (sorry mom and dad!). I also try to drink an extra Nalgene when I come back from long runs all sweaty and dehydrated.
Lastly, my new shirt arrived on Friday and I was so excited I may have worn it two days in a row. I got it at wodsuperstore in case any of you ladies want one!
“Meet me at the Bar!”
I’m off to Texas at the end of this week, but I’ll try to post some yummy treats before I leave! Enjoy your short weeks everyone!
