After a nice 40 minute cardio workout (elliptical and treadmill- I plan on doing ab work tonight to get some strength in, I promise) I came home for some lunch. I made a delicious grilled ciabatta bread sandwich using a generous amount of turkey, provolone cheese, and spicy eggplant marinated in olive oil. Amazing. I had some frozen grapes on the side.
Then began the adventuring. I took the metro (subway) to Marche Jean-Talon, a massive outdoor market that sells a mind-boggling array of fresh produce, cheeses, meats, fish, breads, and just about anything else you can imagine. They set out samples and I did my fair share of tasting, but all of it was fruits and veggies except for a tiny square of homemade fudge.
It was tough choosing what to have for dinner, everything looked and smelled so tantalizing. I narrowed it down to a bison burger or waffles, and wound up going with my sweet tooth and having breakfast for dinner. I had creamy melty nutella and banana sliced over light, fluffy, and slightly crispy waffles. Heaven. I left about 3-4 bites but thoroughly enjoyed the portion that I did eat.
I already have a full fridge at home and had to restrain myself at the market. I came home with the best cherry tomatoes I have ever tasted, perfect nectarines, a plum, strawberries, and a persimmion. I sampled all of these before buying them and I am now soooo excited to eat them all 🙂
