This long weekend I:
… went shopping for some new clothes for my internship. Building a new wardrobe is hard!
… loaded up on food at the Burlington Mall farmers’ market. I bought local free range eggs, corn, cauliflower, broccoli, beets, eggplant, sugar cube melon, tomatoes, peaches, blackberries and blueberries.
… picked up an entire case of assorted flavours of Cathy’s kombucha. I’ve got my mom hooked on it too, so we’ll plow through this pretty quickly.
… rode my bike down to Burlington’s Ribfest (the largest one in Canada!) with my friend Paula and stuffed myself silly with pulled pork and baked beans from Horn Dawgs. I couldn’t move from my couch for the rest of the afternoon!
… made this incredible Thai Crunch Chicken Salad from How Sweet Eats. Go make this now! It was so good.
… had a throwback movie night with my friends and watched The Parent Trap. I made a peach crisp to share, but I had to make it vegan, gluten free, and oat free. That was quite the dilemma. So I used coconut oil instead of butter, quinoa flakes instead of oats, and almond flour instead of flour. It turned out good, but not great. So I just brought ice cream as well – ice cream makes anything better!
… food prepped like a madwoman on Monday because I start my dietetic internship today! I’m so excited! But between interning, working out, physio, therapy, a social life, and “me time”, I know I’m going to be busy this year, so weekend food prep is definitely going to become a regular thing. I plan on doing a more in depth post about it soon.
Anyways, I’m off to my first day of internship – wish me luck!
What did you do this long weekend?
