You’re supposed to read the title so it sort of sounds like “so awesome.” However, some of you may be confused thinking that CHO refers to sugars/carbohydrates. In that case, the title make sense, too, because carbs are also awesome. Unless you are diabetic.
Anyways, last night I tagged along with Jocelyn to Chobani Soho (Jocelyn was invited by the Chobani people and I thought I’d play the part of yogurt party crasher. We ran into Susan, too!), which is, simply put, a yogurt bar. Their creations all feature the plain 0% Chobani (my favorite, I’m not much for the flavored stuff) and range from sweet to savory to simple. In addition, the menu rotates to feature fruits that are in season.
I did my duty and I tried them all for you. There wasn’t one I didn’t like, but I think my favorite was the pistachio + dark chocolate (dark chocolate, turkish pistachios, clover honey, oranges, and mint)….well, the peanut butter and jelly was good, too (creamy peanut butter, concord grape jelly, peanuts, grapes)…and, come to think of it, the cucumber creation (cucumber, sea salt, olive oil, mint + pita chips) sort of tasted like tzatziki sauce.
So, see, you can’t go wrong.
If you’re in Soho (Thompson and Prince are cross streets of store), check it out! On a side note, a dude walked into the store and, although officially closed, the head dude gave him a free yogurt for stopping in anyways. Nice people are cool.
Flat Stanley – did you all do this in school?
My Picky Bars wrist band has become “my own personal Flat Stanley” as he (it is a he, I think) makes a good photo muse.
If you didn’t do Flat Stanley in elementary school, here is the gist. Flat Stanley is this character from a book. In the story, Stanley is flattened by a bulletin board in his sleep. However, a plus to this is that he can be mailed in an envelope. At my school, we made our Stanleys and then sent them to someone who then takes Stanley around wherever they live and takes pictures. You then bring the pictures and such back to class to show where your Stanley went.
Make sense? So, now my Picky Bars wrist band goes many places and shows up on my instagram feed quite frequently.
Final thing – I ran a race last weekend. Well, sort of raced. It was 80 degrees and 87% humidity, which I consider to be fairly brutal conditions.
I tried to keep my effort level consistent although I knew I’d be slower than the week before considerably. And, that was fine by me. I didn’t feel the need to completely torture myself, risk feeling lightheaded, etc.
To give you a comparison: 5K 7/29 in 22:22 (7:12 avg per mile) vs 5 miles 8/4 in 42:17 (8:27 avg per mile; splits apprx 8:20, 8:20, 8:30, 8:45, 8:12).
Flat Stanley stayed home for this one. He didn’t want to risk having an unflattering photo taken of him.
Ok, actual final thing, I’m adopting the US gymnast bun and prepping for Rio 2016.
Poor Jordyn and her stress fracture, by the way…
TELL ME: EAT CHOBANI? FAVORITE FLAVOR? SEND A FLAT STANLEY IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL? RACE IN THE HEAT LAST WEEKEND?
Until next time…
