So where have I been this time?? I have a good excuse. Yes, work and school have both been a little crazier then usual lately, but that is a good thing! Unfortunately there is also bad news that follows…..
As some of you know, I loveeeee running, but my feet do not. For the past year, I have been back and forth to the foot doctor with all different types of pain and discomfort, mostly caused by my pronation. (Basically, my feet roll inwards when I run, here is a great article about it from runners world.)
Unfortunately, I was not getting enough support from my shoes, causing a hair line fracture in my middle toe =[ This leads me to my very attractive boot that I get to wear for 4-6 weeks! Am I bummed? Well, yes. However, I am NOT letting this stop me. I can still work my upper body, have a couple of leg exercises, the recumbent bike (less impact then a normal bike), swiming, and I may even try underwater running! What I am trying to say, is that I am not going to let this stop me, I am just going to have to change up my routine. And you know what I still have? Two hands for cooking.
I found this lentils and spinach recipe years ago on vegweb.com, and it has been a staple in my house ever since. It is easy, quick, delicious, and 99% of the time I seem to have these ingredients lying around my house! Like every recipe, you can make your on variations! The recipe suggests serving it with rice, but I have also used corn chips, whole wheat pita bread, or my favorite topping of greek yogurt & lemon juice! Lentils are packed with protein and fiber making this light meal very filling.
Any suggestions for a fractured toe?
