Day 2 and Recipe Review

Hi again!!

So, today was the second day of my Couch to 5K Challenge.

It went good!  It was a busy day of work, temple, meeting,
and finally the gym, but it felt so good to be in the gym again.

If found myself wanting to do more, but I held back and still
felt like I got a really good workout, if the sweat rolling off
my face was any indication.  

Also, on a side are a few healthy recipes I tried
that I found off of Pinterest.  First up, THIS JEWEL...

I'll admit, I was a little nervous to try this recipe, I have never loved
sweet potatoes unless they're drowning in butter and sugar, but I threw
a sweet potato in the oven before I left for the gym.  I hurried
home, and made the black bean salad, which seriously takes 
5 minutes and I happened to have EVERYTHING on hand. win/win.

I absolutely loved this meal!  It was super good, super nutritious, and
the flavors went really well together.  I already can't wait until tomorrow
until I can make it again. 

On to the next...
THIS meal happened to be disgusting.

I am not one to shy away from trying weird healthy substitution
things.  For example, Spaghetti made out of Spaghetti squash is a 
WINNER.  Delicious!  Cauliflower Pizza, though, not so much.
It had a weird texture, it fell apart easily, and it has a hard time cooking 
all the way through to the middle. The outside crust wasn't to bad, but a few bites 
in the middle and it was about all I could take.  I had a lot left over when James 
came home from work and he wouldn't even touch it.  But, there are a 
TON of comments on the website where this recipe is from and lots of people 
loved it.  So we maybe the weird ones, but I kind of doubt it.  haha

Anyway, if I try anything else that's good, I'll let you know.

Well folks, that's all for now!  
Wow, blogging to the world is a great way to hold myself accountable!

If anybody has any great recipes for healthy foods, I'd love to hear them!

Mmmm that sweet potato looks delicious. That's too bad that pizza didn't work out. It looks pretty good too... :) I think I'm hungry.
