Yesterday was a super active day filled with sun, fun, biking, and hiking around Central Oregon.
After breakfast, Mal and I, his parents, and Mal’s dad’s cousin went for a 40-minute bike ride around Black Butte Ranch.
There are miles and miles of paved bike paths and the scenery is absolutely breathtaking, so it was quite a treat.
After our bike ride, we popped home for a quick lunch since we planned to head out again for a hike. I ate a cold chicken breast, half of a banana with almond butter, an iced vanilla chai tea latte, some blueberries, and an additional spoonful of almond butter. I was hungry and knew I’d need fuel to get me through an afternoon hike.
After lunch, we hopped in the car to drive to the McKenzie River to explore the area and see the Sahalie Falls and Koosah Falls.
Here I am with Mal and his parents at Sahalie Falls.
Check out the crystal clear water!
We hiked for about 90 minutes and then headed home to relax and enjoy a little Happy Hour.
I was hungry again, so I snacked on a half of an avocado with salt and pepper and a couple of scoops of almond butter straight from the jar.
During Happy Hour, I enjoyed an iced vanilla chai tea latte and some honey-roasted peanuts.
A couple of hours later, I ate dinner, which was a chicken breast with roasted zucchini and Brussels spouts and Sweet Potato Wedges.
