Three Things Thursday - Eats, Reads, Sunrises

Happy Friday Eve (aka Thursday).

I wanted to do a round-up of some of the things I've been enjoying lately. I used to share a good deal more about my daily life - meals, workouts, even books I read. So, today I thought I'd go back to that and share a little insider info.

Eats

We've been enjoying lots of salads lately. I guess salads tend to go hand-in-hand with summer. 

1. Grilled veggie salad - pretty much any grilled veggie with either tempeh or tofu.

2. "Steak" summer salad - used Gardein Beefless Strips and mixed with corn, black beans, jalapenos, tomatoes, bell peppers, lime juice, apple cider vinegar and spices. Also great in wraps.



3. Green Bean, Potato, Tofu Salad with Dijon Dressing - I plan on posting this recipe next week. It was inspired by a friend who makes a similar salad for us.


Reads

I'm a big reader and love spending lazy Saturday and Sunday afternoons sitting outside reading. I typically read for an hour or so most evenings as well just before bed. My most recent reads have somehow all revolved around missing women ... Not intentional. But, I need some more lighthearted reading I'm thinking. 

1. Still Missing by Chevy Stevens

2. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn

3. Presumed Dead by Shirley Wells


Sunrises


I know, I am probably terribly redundant with my postings of sunrises most mornings. But they just never ever get old to me. Each one is so unique and it's such a peaceful way to start the day.

1. Sunrise from this morning's 10-mile run.


2. This was from Wednesday's 8-mile run with Amy. We had a stormy night and this was the tail end of the storms.


3. This was from last week. A front had pushed through with some cooler air and lower humidity.
