Yesterday I had a nice little tempo run. I did a warm-up mile and then 2 miles at tempo pace and then a one mile cool-down. It really feels SO GOOD to start pushing myself again. I really took it easy during the spring and early summer!
I did my tempo miles at 7:24, and it felt just about right. It wasn’t necessarily comfortable, but I felt like I could sustain the pace for a while. In essence, it was pretty spot on for tempo!
Now for the tofu part! When my husband was away last week, I decided to try out some new tofu meals. I like tofu, but he’s not a big fan, so I seized the opportunity to try some recipes I had been eyeing on Pinterest.
I received some Nasoya tofu coupons to use in creating these recipes, and all I needed was a few other simple ingredients. I chose a BBQ tofu recipe that I found on Oh She Glows—a great source of fabulous plant-based recipes.
The recipe was simple—my favorite kind. It turned out great! I had never pressed the tofu before to get rid of all of the moisture, so that made a big difference. I also liked pan frying it, which gave it a firmer texture. I served the BBQ tofu with broccoli, couscous, and some grilled red peppers. It was great!
And now for a great giveaway! For those of you that are not yet familiar with Boloco, it’s short for Boston Local Co. and they are a burrito shop with 21 different locations in New England and the Washington, D.C. metro area.
The Boloco philosophy is to provide natural and organic burritos for those of us looking for a healthier alternative to traditional fast food fare. At Boloco, you will find something for every type of diet, be it gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, etc.
I recently tried one of their Bangkok Thai burrito with falafel (they were out of tofu later in the day). It was AWESOME! I wasn’t sure what it would taste like with falafel instead, but I loved it!
