So, it’s only natural that I throw another breakfast treat at you: The Avocado Egg Bake. And yes, it taste just as amazing as it sounds.
First, I halved and de-pitted an avocado, and placed each half in a mini baking dish (can you tell I like mini things?). Then, I cracked two eggs into a bowl, and then transferred each egg into the hole of each half of the avocado. **Putting the eggs into a separate bowl before cracking makes it easier to place the yolk directly into the hole.**
Any leftover egg whites, I just added top of the avocado and into the dish. Then I put it in the oven at 425 degrees for 15 minutes (or until eggs were firm). I also added grated cheese on top for the last 5 minutes.
They turned out so yummy! I didn’t even need to add salt and pepper. (Although, I did add Tabasco, because I’m a hot sauce fiend). Here’s another one with double the deliciousness tucked inside.
In other news, I tried a new workout on Tuesday morning, courtesy of New Balance, and I’m still sore!
First off, I got some awesome New Balance gear to use during the workout and I la la loved the shoes. They were light, supportive, and who doesn’t love bright pink? And they go well with the rest of my workout/running shoe collection.
Jeff Bell and Carlos Leon co-own the private, appointment-only fitness conditioning and personal training studio, Belleon Body, in the East Village. The guys took a group of us through three rounds of exercises, getting faster and adding more reps per round.
While they only offer personal training at the moment, they have offered classes like this and will bring them back come the new year. I’m excited, because it really was a great workout where we just used our body weight and natural movements for exercises.
Any plans for the weekend? I have a handful of Arizona friends in town (odd I know!), so we’ll be galavanting around the city just eating and checking out all the Christmas decorations up already (aka – The Rockefeller Tree and Ice Rink and the Bryant Park Holiday Market).
Updated Race Schedule:
OH—and I have a few runs I need to get in, too (a 5 and a 7 mile). Erika and I signed up for the Voices! 5M on Nov. 17. It’s a race that benefits brain cancer, something my step-mom has been fighting for over 11 years. I just really wanted to help support the cause and let her know I’m thinking about her even though I’m thousands of miles away. We’re going to make t-shirts for the race, too!
Speaking of races, here are some I have on my agenda in the next few months and into next year:
- Nov. 17: Voices! 5M
- Feb. 15: Cupid’s Undie Run
- Feb. 21-22: Ragnar Relay del Dol
- March 16: NYC Half Marathon (I entered the lottery, so I hope I get chosen!)
- April 26: Nashville Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon
I’d like to add a 10K or another half marathon in the spring, too.
