Irony and iron-y

**Don't forget to enter to win a SPIbelt. Or at least read the post because there are some awkward bra jokes.

I'm still on the prescription 'roids for this poison ivy biz, and my appetite is through the roof. It was big anyway, but now it's all about cheeseburgers and eggs. Give me some red meat and two dozen eggs, and I'm satisfied. Give me anything else, and I will 'roid rage you. It's scarily similar to being pregnant with the emotions running high and the demand for red meat and eggs being hard to fill.

And just when you thought that you had seen the best thing so far that day, your husband posts this flyer from his work fundraiser. 


I also found some sweet, sweet irony in the book I recently checked out from the library, Runner's World Performance Nutrition for Runners.


Well, less the book and more the reader.


Quick, scroll down and look away from that picture. This treat is equally as good and less disgusting to your arteries.


And here's something else that I'm loving to eat right now. Remember when I went to the Mediterranean store and bought labni (also, apparently, spelled lebni). The store owner said this was the best brand they sold, and now I'm, well, sold. It's delicious. We just use it to dip our pita chips, but I'm sure you can find more creative ways to use it. So if you're a labni fan, look for this brand.



My workout yesterday was sword fighting at the zoo.


It all worked out in the end. 


What is your current food crush?

Did you spot any irony in your day today? Or did you eat anything iron-y (hilarious, right)? I think I've only been eating iron-y foods.

  1. I love the zoo but haven't been in a while. I have been loving Quinoa in wraps lately. Yumm. Nothing iron-y today besides my vitamins:)

  2. My current food crush is hummus. I don't know why but I can't get enough of it!

    The irony in my day is that my daughter has had a sub in her gifted language class for a month now because they can't find a gifted certified teacher, however the sub is not gifted certified. Go figure.

    1. I also bought canned hummus for the first time ever at that mediterranean store. I was skeptical, but the guy was right on the labni so maybe his hummus recommendations aren't off.

  4. I started taking an iron supplement and incorporating eggs into every breakfast .. It helped with energy levels! Though the iron-y about it is that I've gained 10 lbs since that change too.

    1. You sound like my kids. We are currently going through about five loaves of bread a week for sandwiches. I wish I was kidding!

  6. I'm loving sweet potatoe fries. Yum! Also craving some homemade quick breads but haven't started baking yet. Your ironic 5K poster reminded me of my daughter getting bribed with candy to perform well in PE. Huh?

  7. I can't believe the Krispy Kreme thing. That's just ridiculous. Do they not see it??

    Current food crush is watermelon because the season is ending so we're eating it like it's going out of fashion. Because it is!!!

    No irony here...but no ironing either, so I'm happy ;)

    1. I hate when watermelon season ends. It's a bit of an obsession in our family, and I can eat a half by myself for a snack.

  8. Besides avocado salsa, Im crushing on foods that i can't get my hands on in SK, or are poor quality or super expensive here ... mostly goats cheese, chorizo and nice hummus. My cravings for nice goats cheese are so bad I've been plotting the purchase of a goat when we move so I will never be without goats cheese again... oh dear.

    1. Someone just told me an amazing sounding goat cheese recipe today. I need to take advantage of it while I have easy access! Why am I not stuffing everything with goat cheese?! My friend has goats and drinks goat milk and makes goat cheese. I'm always jealous of her!

  9. What are they putting in hummus that's turning us all into addicts?! My current obsession involves that tasty chickpea spread with just about anything dipped into it. (not ice cream, though. that would destroy the sanctity of the frozen treat)

    I have no ironic observations that can hold a candle to your poster. That's priceless.

    1. They sold me some canned hummus at the mediterranean store and swore it is the best. I was a little nervous about canned (not sure why).

      Delete
  10. Ugh, I can't eat hummus. It gives me a terrible stomach ache no matter what flavour I try. I'm huge into rose sauce and pasta right now. Like I'll have it for dinner at least 4 times a week. I have no stories of irony, half the time I have a hard time figuring out if I'm using the word correctly. :oP Sword fights at the zoo sound awesome!!!

    1. I just sing the Alanis Morissette song in my head to remind me.:) Rose sauce? Googling right now.

      Delete
    2. But I hear that the real irony of that song is that most of those are NOT examples of irony! Don't take life stories from a singer! If you do it just may rain men, and truly, who wants that? Haha!

  11. Wow...the irony in that fundraiser is just way too much!! LOL I don't have a current food crush but I'm thinking I need to find one!
