Pasta, Recipes, Running, Workouts


March 9, 2012

I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about today that is just GREAT. I’ve had so much energy all day which is very unusual for a Friday. My Friday’s are always filled with labs in morning, followed by group meetings to discuss our project, an afternoon of lectures and a weekly test. But today I got home and all I wanted to do was go for a run…so I did. I managed to squeeze in a 7km run before the sun set and now feeling even better. It’s true that exercising makes you feel A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I know my runner’s high won’t last forever so I’m enjoying it while I can 😉

And because I’m in such a great mood I have a special treat for all of my UK readers :)

If you’ve been following my blog in the past you will have almost definitely read something about the Graze Box. This is a box that is sent to me weekly with 4 punnets of healthy snacks and treats. I like to always have snacks on hand and mostly I will have fruit, smoothies, etc. But the Graze Box offers a very wide variety of snacks that you can individualize to your taste and have sent to you weekly, or only every other week, depending on how you like it.

So, what’s the good part? Well, I always get a voucher with my boxes which I can share with friends and only recently have I discovered that I can actually post the voucher code on my blog to share with all of you. So, if you’d like to try the Graze Box (and obviously I highly recommend it!) then go here and enter the code Z1TJWWQD to claim your free box. For every free box you order I will be donating 1 GBP to charity :)

Now on to more food…

I had a pasta party the other day. I realized that my pantry is still stuffed with rice, grains and pasta and that I really need to start eating some of it before the Uni year ends. So I made Grilled Pepper-Pesto Pasta.

This is nothing fancy, but perfect for a satisfying lunch or when you’re in the mood for a pasta dinner.


Now it’s time to get my weekend started in style by cooking a delicious dinner. . .

Have a great weekend everyone!
