Good Evening! Today has been CRAAAAZY Long… I am going to hit the hay as soon as I finish this post! This will be the last day of “Everyday Eats” for the next couple of weeks. Taking a hiatus to travel the world! I am hoping to bring blog posts from my travels real time…you can be sure I’ll be posting updates on my Facebook Fan Page. Like me to stay updated!
Hot water with lemon and cayenne
Craving a banana so bad this morning (this happens to me if I drink wine the night before…It’s really nuts how in tune I am with my body’s needs for potassium!) I cut a 1/3 of one and combined it with some blueberries…Then I added a cup of Larry’s BeansBefore I left for the gym in the morning, I made some breakfast for the boys who were still asleep! A bowl of cherries, blueberries, banana and a few slices of Ezekiel Cinnamon Raisin Toast, organic butter and fig preservesMy gym session today was incredible – Check out my results. My calorie burn is so much higher when I eat a big meal the night before, I am able to work extra hard from all the energy in my body…I had my usual after workout meal – a Hari Shake and Jay Robb – Whey Vanilla Protein
Then I ran some serious errands and ran back home in between to grab a quick salad – I have eat EVERYTHING in my fridge before Tuesday! I combined 3 cups of arugula, a few tbsp of beet sweetened hummus, and a half of an avocado and tossed with some balsamic vinegar. Also I had some buckwheat crackers with almond butter… FYI – I am FINALLY out of my hummus. I made a double batch on Monday morning and it lasted 5.5 days for me and my husband. Not bad.I was still really hungry, so I grabbed a piece of left over Ezekiel toast from the morning. Didn’t need any toppings, this bread is that GOOD!After lunch I went to Southpark and ran around like an chicken with my head cut off! I had so many things to get/return/look at before starting to pack this afternoon…. On the way home I headed to Earth Fare to pick up some shelf stable probiotics for my trip (the kind you don’t have to refrigerate) and a few other necessities (i.e. LOTS OF KALE) to get me through Tuesday eating and feeling good! There were so many samples today – I had raw goji chocolate and a couple of samplings of soup This was a nice snack after my rampage in the mall. I seriously think I burned more calories in the mall running around with all my heavy bags, than in my workout this morning! A friend from work said she saw me at the mall today… no wonder she didn’t say Hi – I probably ran right past her like the roadrunner! beep beep!
I packed a snack of almonds, gojis and golden raisins but totally forgot about it. I did find a honey sweetened peppermint patty while I searched for my keys between stops and ate that. I ate it so fast that I didn’t take a picture! I also grabbed a handful of Mary’s Gone Crackers Curry Sticks & Twigs right out of my grocery cart - Can I say they are just amazing. I didn’t take a picture of that either. Sorry.
Finally got home and made some fresh juice to help me energize before packing… I started this juice with a big head of cabbage. Cabbage juice acts as a cleaning agent for your digestive system. I love it, especially after a day of eating random things…Ahhhhhh…. I didn’t have any juice yesterday, 1 day without it, is all I need as a reminder of how good fresh juice makes you feel. I was instantly energized…
Then I cooked up the fastest delicious meal of all time. A frittata with red onion, red pepper and lots of savory spices. I always enjoy my frittata with some kind of greens – I finished off some more of the arugula in the fridge… Recipe will be coming soon!Frittata up close….Dessert:
Gojis, coconut and chocolate chipsA few squares of this white chocolate. If you have never tried Green and Black’s Organic White Chocolate. Go.Buy.Some.Now. There are tiny little vanilla bean specks in it. To die for.
The packing begins!!!! Prepping my tolietries and treats….
Taking two suitcases…. one to carry on and one to check…..Got my soap ready! Cut my Kiss My Face Olive Oil Soap into travel sizes to use in multiple hotels for the next few weeks!
