This morning’s breakfast was a whole wheat wrap with almond butter, mashed sweet potato, raisins, and cinnamon inside.

I’ve been really loving wraps lately, huh? They’re such a quick and easy way to make a meal. The wrap pictured above is a brand called Wrap-Itz. I also like the Joseph’s brand, but I pretty much buy whatever is on sale and doesn’t have a million crazy ingredients.


Today’s lunch ended up being a bunch of snacks. I started with a spinach salad topped with sliced turkey, black beans, crumbled blue cheese, and Annie’s balsamic dressing.

Then, I ate a couple of slices of watermelon.

And a little while later, I whipped up a couple of smoothies for Mal and me. In the mix: frozen strawberries, frozen chopped kale, vanilla Greek yogurt, vanilla protein powder, ground flaxseed meal, and almond milk.

Question of the Day

Have you ever attended a major sporting event (i.e. Olympics, Super Bowl, Wimbledon)? If not, which event(s) would you most like to attend?

P.S. I saw this piece on the Fitness website today: 13 Female Olympians to Watch. I thought it was cool, so I decided to share!



  1. Your mason jar smoothies are so cute! I think you’ve said this before, but where can I find straws like yours? I always use straws, but I just use the green plastic ones from Starbucks. Yours are much cuter! Thanks, Tina!

  2. I went to game one of the ALDS in 2007 in Boston. That was pretty intense. I have also been to Red Sox opening day in ’06, ’07, and ’08!

  3. I attended the Winter Olympics in Vancouver in 2010 and The SuperBowl in Tampa in 2009 (both work trips!). The Olympics was hands down, best experience of my life.

    I would loveee to go to the crossfit games! watching the NE regionals was inspiring enough! Will def check out the twitter chat/contest.

  4. Looks like a healthy day of meals! I was just looking for those adora disks yesterday because they always look so good on your blog! The only major sports event I’ve been to was CrossFit Regionals and that was so amazing! I can only imagine how awesome the games will be to watch!!!

  5. This is probably a stupid question, but you freeze your kale? How does that work? I have been contemplating doing that with spinach for my smoothies because it goes bad really quickly before I can use it all but I wasn’t sure how it would turn out and thought it was a pretty silly idea but if you do it too then maybe I’m on to something!

    1. I buy my frozen kale at the grocery store. It’s sold in bags in the freezer section, so I just toss some in my smoothies when the feeling strikes! πŸ™‚

  6. I attended a women’s ice hockey game during the 2006 Winter Games in Torino, Italy…it was so cool! πŸ™‚

  7. I’ve never seen any major sporting event live πŸ™ but I am dying to see the Olympics one day! I’ve been completely obsessed with the trials this year. Btw your wraps always look so delicious, I need to start doing that!

  8. Tina-where do you get the Adora disks? I always thought that you were just enjoying a chocolate treat-I didn’t know that they were good for you! I just tried almond butter after seeing how much you like it, but I don’t love it. I am hoping it will grow on me! Love your blog:)

  9. Thanks for the link to “13 female Olympians to watch.” Alex Morgan is awesome. I would love to go to the Wimbledon and the World Cup!!

  10. The most major sporting event I went to was an FC Barcelona soccer (errr..futbol) game a few months ago while I was studying abroad in Barcelona. I ended up being at the game where the player Messi made history for scoring the most goals–so awesome!

  11. Hey Tina,
    Do you chop your kale and freeze it yourself, or are you able to buy it frozen? Does it make better smoothies if it’s frozen, or do you do that to make last longer?
    Thanks! πŸ™‚

  12. I attended Wimbledon in about 1996 or 1997. It happened to rain the entire day we were there and NO tennis was played the day were were there. All we saw of Wimbledon were the green tarps covering the courts. πŸ™

  13. Ahhhhhh wish I could do crossfit! I’m the victim of never-ending joint problems and tendinitis in most of my pelvis and right wrist. But it looks so fun! Injury life isn’t fun for a 15+ year athlete… but I can do crossfit variously through reading your posts!

  14. haven’t visited your site in a while and this post reminded me of why I still continue to like reading your posts. Simple and too the point. =)

  15. My niece used to speedskate and was in the ’88 Calgary and ’92 Lillehammer games. We went to the ’88 games. Watched lots of speedskating, a hockey game and a downhill event. Also went to the closing ceremonies. It was so much fun!

  16. My husband is a tennis coach and least year I got to tag along to Wimbledon. It was so cool to see it from the players’ side and as a spectator.

  17. I’ve never been to a major sporting event but if I had to choose one, I would choose Olympic volleyball games. I played in high school and absolutely loved playing. I love volleyball the way most men love football. Spike it!

  18. I attended the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. My parents are from Greece and they naturally wanted me to come to represent Greece. I saw swimming, track and field and gymnastics. It was really cool to see Michael Phelps win his first major Gold medal. The track people were insanely fast! Makes my 8:50 min mile time look like dust! haha πŸ™‚

  19. Your blog always leaves me wanting fruit, nut butter, veggies and smoothies! πŸ™‚

    I’ve never attended a major sporting event but I’d love to go to USA Volleyball Games! I played in college and it’s just such a fun sport to watch.

  20. A few years back, I attended Wimbledon which was a blast! More than the actual games, i loved the whole atmosphere- champagne with strawberries & cream all round :)!

  21. Dang it! why did I wait to read this untill midnight.. I would of loved to win tickets to the games!!
    boo. Any chance you could just sneak me in?
    haha! but seriously. πŸ˜‰

  22. I’m lucky in that I have been to Wimbledon a couple of times. I am going to Paris for the French Open next year (if I can get tickets!). I LOVE tennis though- it’s my aim to get to all the slams!

    I didn’t manage to get any tickets for the Olympics though which is a shame- but I have seen the torch pass by- does that count?!

  23. I was lucky enough to attend the Sydney 2000 Olympics! It was one of the best experiences of my life. I have such fond memories of going with my family to watch the athletics, tennis and a few other events. In my lifetime I hope to be able to go to another Olympic games… the city just comes alive and everyone unites in sport!

  24. Another Boston local here – and based on your blog and your GUN a few posts ago, I’m trying my first CF class this weekend or next! Scary!

  25. I have always been a HUGE Olympics fan, so I would love to get to go see the Olympics anywhere. I have events that I like best (gymnastics in particular), but I’d seriously be willing to see curling if it meant that I was watching the Olympics live! haha
