Food pics and dog pics?? You guys are really striking internet gold with today’s blog post. 😉 I recently started walking my friend’s dog a few days a week, and it’s become an hour of “me time” I look forward to each afternoon. Headphones on, away from the computer, getting my daily dose of Vitamin D–I love it! And just look at this little cutie …
I switch up where we go each day, and with the warm weather in full swing, these dog walks are the perfect excuse to get out of the apartment and soak in this beautiful city that I all too often take for granted. If we’re going to be crossing streets and weaving around crowds, I’ll pick out a podcast to listen to, but if I take the little fluff ball to the Public Garden, he spends so much time sniffing around trees that I can actually do some reading while we “walk” (aka stop to sniff and pee on every single bush in Boston).
For today’s post, I stopped by Shaw’s (<– you can get $1 off PEOPLE, InStyle, Real Simple, Cooking Light or Sunset magazine with that link) and picked up a Cooking Light for my trip to the park. Flipping through magazines is so relaxing to me, and food magazines in particular are perfect for blog recipe inspiration.
One of the pages I dogeared on my walk was a beet salad. Inspired by the recipe, I threw together this variation of arugula, golden beets, feta and avocado when I got home. So delicious! For the full recipe, check out the June issues of Cooking Light.
I made this light and refreshing salad for dinner the other night along with some pan-cooked cod and quinoa and it was perfection.
