Hey Guys!

Monday is over, who’s happy? I had a bizarre day on the bus front. I’m not sure if I told you or not, but I’m one of oh, 3 people in LA who can actually ride the bus. (Fine, that is an exaggeration.) But I do feel SO incredibly lucky that it is easy for me to ride the bus! First the bus I ride drove right past me, then I missed the stop that I needed to get off at (good book!) and then on the way home, someone driving by yelled “hey prostitutes!” out the window to myself and a girl from work. I thought my outfit was kind of preppy, but apparently not! :)

Oh, and I’m a little out of practice on the daily eats posts – I forgot to take two pictures! I’m sure you can use your imagination…

Beverages: coffee + coconut creamer. While I prefer the flavor of 1/2 & 1/2, I’m trying to cut down on dairy and find that after a few days of coconut creamer I don’t really notice it anymore. I save my dairy consumption for cheese and greek yogurt.

Breakfast: raspberry & cashew museli (or overnight oats): 1 serving oats + almond milk + 1/2 cup 2% greek yogurt + 3/4 cup raspberries + flax + cashews

Lunch: tuna (1 can) & white bean (2 servings) salad + greens with balsamic dressing

Snack 1: finn crisp crackers (caraway) + 100 calorie pack of guacamole

Snack 2: raw almond butter

Workout: 45 minute spin class

Snack 3: olives

 

Dinner: brown rice + fried tofu + bok choy, asparagus and baby greens saute

Dessert: small square of dark chocolate

Have any good commuting stories to share?

japanese breakfast fried rice

Remember how I used to obsess/panic over what I would pack for lunch? Well, I’ve moved onto breakfast. Last week I made a baked oatmeal and this japanese breakfast fried rice. For breakfasts. On work days. What is wrong with me?! Why can’t I subsist on sprouted bread and peanut butter anymore? So now, in addition

journey bars

review: journey bars {and giveaway}

I’ve been doing fewer and fewer product reviews, but sometimes I come across something, or something comes across my inbox and I’ve just got to try it – and subsequently – share it with you all! I’m definitely a savory/salty snacker and when the afternoon rolls around, its not sweets that I’m craving. Truthfully, I

chicken field salad {trader joe’s inspired}

I’m pretty sure I’ve tried 98% of the items at Trader Joe’s. I mean, it is just too convenient. It is across from the yoga/spinning studio that I belong to. There are three of them within walking distance of our apartment. And they are absolutely everywhere here in Los Angeles. So I’ve been doing most of

simple & healthy: stir-fry

Stir-frys are always a great choice for simple and healthy meals that come together in minutes. In fact, usually the rice takes longer to make than the stir-fry itself. If you are short on time, consider trying frozen brown rice or instant brown rice. (You can also make your own brown rice in large batches

Hey Friends! I’m here with another post of daily eats! I mentioned that I’ve been getting more into raw foods again (happens every spring/summer) which is why you’ll see some more raw foods than normal added into the day. 5.14.12  Morning: For some reason this morning I didn’t feel like coffee so I had some

quinoa spring salad

I go through a love-hate relationship with quinoa. I’ll go through phases where I make a batch every week and eat it up for quick lunches or dinners but then I’ll go months without making it. After a pretty long quinoa dry spell, I needed something enticing to bring it back into my life. And
