As I have mentioned before, I have been selected as a Sweat Pink Ambassador through Fit Approach, and I could not be ANY more excited.
My extreme excitement was heightened when I received my swag bag in the mail:
I did not waste any time and broke my sweat pink tank in with a 30 minute ride on my fluid trainer.
Notice the bike in the background? It has pretty much been my sole source of exercise lately, minus a few sets of abs. Also, I REALLY need to get some sunshine! I look like a ghost.
Speaking of Sweat Pink…check out the Ambassadors page to get to know some of the other amazing women who are a part of the team! While you’re there, check out my post on the blog talking about my fitness journey!
Oh ya…and I actually made something I pinned on Pinterest for dinner last night! And believe me when I say it was simple and yummy! Then again, I didn’t make the exact recipe. Rather, I just kind of threw everything together and called it a day. No specific measurements for me. And I used pre-made bread crumbs and rice pasta rather than linguine. Still really tasty!
Garlic Bread Crumb Pasta
- 1 slice day-old hearty white bread
- 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 6 garlic cloves, minced
- 8 ounces uncooked linguine
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- Preheat oven to 250°.
- Place bread in a food processor; pulse 10 times or until coarse crumbs measure 2/3 cup. Place breadcrumbs on a baking sheet. Bake at 250° for 30 minutes or until dry.
- Heat 1 1/2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add garlic; cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and let stand 5 minutes. Return pan to heat. Stir in breadcrumbs, and cook 6 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring frequently.
- Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain. Place pasta in a large bowl. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons oil, breadcrumbs, parsley, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper; toss gently to combine. Serve immediately.
Totally hit the spot, and I will definitely be having leftovers for lunch. Leftovers make me super happy.
As does my amazing boyfriend, who left me this note before he left yesterday.
Did you ever have notes in your lunchbox growing up? I totally miss that. My mom would always do it (even in high school as I was a packer all day every day) on my birthday or days of big tests. I miss it.
