Leggings? Really? No. Just….no.
The stretchy skinny jeans on boys were bad enough. But I forgave them – they’re trendy, I get it. And on the right guy they aren’t so heinous. But motherfrigging cotton-lycra-blend leggings? Never. Nothing should cling that close on a dude. Not unless you’re on stage dancing a pas de deux with the Sugar Plum Fairy, anyway.
Boys, I don’t care how great you think your ass is or whose team you’re batting for. Please just say no to leggings. Leave this trend to the girls – our bodies are far better suited for clingy fabric around the hips.
Today’s EAT: Wild Salmon in the wintertime is a bit confusing for this native Pacific Northwest girl, but when I saw some frozen at TJ’s last week I decided to give it a try. And while it can’t come close to fresh caught salmon in September, it was pretty tasty dressed up with a Maple Glaze (recipe here):
Served with a couple of awesome Greenmarket finds: fresh whole-wheat pasta from a local farm and sunflower sprouts! I tossed the sprouts with homemade balsamic vinaigrette. I love trying new foods, and I’d never had sunflower sprouts before! They taste kind of like a cross between bean sprouts and salad greens and are apparently packed with protein. Yum! I’ll definitely buy them again in the future – either to have as a salad on their own or mixed in with other salad greens. They’d be good on a sandwich too.
And because that was all way too healthy, we’re finishing the night off with some mini-cupcakes from Baked By Melissa:
This place is so cute with its quarter-sized cupcakes! I got a trio of mint chocolate chip, cookie dough and peanut butter cup:
Perfect for an itty bitty sweet tooth like mine. 🙂
Today’s DRINK: Red wine with fish?! Sure, why not! Tonight it’s Merlot. We are still working through the awesome box of E.B. Foote that my mom and her husband sent us a few weeks ago! Very enjoyable and this is definitely a step up from the $6 Trader Joe’s stuff that we normally drink. It’s going to be a sad day when it runs out.
Today’s RUN: Day off! I’m resting up for what I think is going to be an extremely hard workout tomorrow. Stay tuned for more on that…
