Sunday Quickie

23 Feb

I busted my finger Friday, so in light of that I’m not really digging the idea of hunting and pecking over a keyboard all afternoon. And I freaking hate blogging on my phone. Which I am doing right now, because thumbs.

But I must share something! So, I been sucking these guys down all week (that sounds…wrong) and let me tell you: my mood is better, my skin is better, and my body is LOVING these post-workout. Yeah, I can workout 1 handed. No excuses here 😉

Green God(dess) Smoothie:

  • 1 handful kale
  • 1/2 handful fresh parsley
  • 1/2 green apple
  • 1/3 haas avocado
  • 1 squirt lemon juice
  • 2 clementines
  • Dash of cayenne pepper
  • 8oz coconut water

Blend. Drink. Feel good about yourself.

Now I have to get back to my weekend of Chipotle – have you tried the vegan sofritas?! I’m making them for the blog this week. Because I think I do need them everyday for a while…and I’m on a budget – and a mega Mad Men Netflix binge. Don Draper, you make me forget all about my busted-up digit ❤

Christmas is coming. And then every personal trainer’s dream holiday: New Years!

With resolution season quickly approaching, I like the idea of turning this blog into a (temporary?) food diary. I’m not creative enough to come up with exciting new recipes everyday, and I’ve gotten comments and suggestions from some of you requesting meal-planning and clean eating posts. I’m slow, I know. I’m trying. You should know that.

Yesterday afternoon/evening was just plain crazy with work and volunteering (HUGE thanks to everyone who braved the cold to bring in generous donations of food and cash to the Thurston County Food Bank. You’re awesome!) and I didn’t get home for dinner until about 9pm. I wanted quick comfort food and stumbled upon a ridiculously delicious combination:

  • Scrambled eggs (2 whole, 1 white)
  • 2 cups wilted spinach (olive oil and garlic)
  • Crumbled Great Harvest Cornbread muffin
  • Salt, pepper, and smoked paprika

11pm: Chamomile tea and bed.

And since there’s no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
