The short week is coming to a close! Who is looking forward to the weekend? I’m headed back to work on Sunday, but I’m looking forward to a little relaxing tomorrow!

5.31.12

Beverages: Coffee + coconut creamer. I’m trying to wean myself off of the 1/2 & 1/2 but I’m not sure how long it will last. :) 1/2 & 1/2 tastes SO much better!

Breakfast 1: Yesterday I tried a new juice, and only drank half of it, so this morning I needed to finish the rest of the bottle. I’ve been keeping a few of the evolution vegetable juices around for busy mornings – they are cold pressed and not pasteurized so almost as good as making it from scratch!

Workout: 45 minute spin class

Breakfast 2: 1 slice whole wheat bread with earth balance + 1 egg.

Breakfast 2.5: Breakfasts 1 and 2 weren’t enough after spinning so I snacked on a bag of almonds, cashews and cranberries.

Snack 1: My version of Starbuck’s Double Shot. This iced coffee contained: 1 shot of espresso, 2 tsp agave (way too much), skim milk and 1/2 & 1/2. I need to work on the proportions but do you know this drink? I used to be obsessed with it.

Lunch: I’ve been trying to recreate one of our favorite salads from Trader Joe’s – I should have the recipe for you next week! The salad contains greens, couscous, chicken, etc. and a sweet basil salad dressing.

Snack: This afternoon I acted as nanny/driver for my 7 year-old cousin which involved a trip to Barnes & Noble for her schools book fair. I snacked on part of a thinkThin bar in between the aisles of the children’s section. :)

Dinner: Because we didn’t get home until 9pm, cooking dinner was not really an option so we grabbed sandwiches from Mendocino Farms on the way home. I had the pork belly bahn mi and some chips – amazing! Can’t wait to try more of their sandwiches.

 

Next daily eats post is going to have a theme – but you tell me what you would like to see – Juice Fast (never tried one) or Jillian Michaels Making the Cut Plan – or let me know if there is something else you would like to see!

Have a wonderful weekend friends!

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

Hi Guys, Thanks for the wise words on my “lack of posting” post. I just wanted to let you know what was going on with me these days. I’m thinking that my next daily eats post should be another themed “diet or meal plan” post like I have done previously! They are so fun for

favorite ways to eat avocados

(source) I’ve been doing some (delicious) experimenting with avocados lately. The health benefits of avocado are wonderful ones: lots of fiber, potassium, vitamins C,K, folate and B6 so they are something that I like to make sure I’m eating on a regular basis and I find it can satisfy me in a way similar to

Last weekend we had good friends in town and we had a BLAST! We ate great food (Umami, Lisa Vanderpump’s SUR and our neighborhood favorite Basix Cafe), went out on the Sunset Strip (Chateau Marmont, The Standard, The Hollywood Den) and then I needed to detox. I throw around the word “detox” a lot, but

Is it really April? I’m still not convinced. Coffee: I started with some coffee + 1/2 & 1/2 but just wasn’t feeling the coffee so switched to some green tea. Some days that happens – I have no idea why. Breakfast: I hadn’t had eggs in a few days so I was craving them. Eggs

Hello Friends and Happy Spring! 3.20.12 Coffee: Still on the 1/2 & 1/2 kick… Breakfast 1: 1 packet instant oats + 1 Tbsp almond butter. I ate about half of it as I was leaving to work out shortly after and needed something, but didn’t want too much. ¬†Pretty ugly and very boring! Workout: Today
