So I kind of got fired from one of my side jobs last week.  Oddly enough, I was actually more proud than upset. I’ve never been one to really stand up for myself and tell people exactly how I feel, but I was pushing back on most of the procedures this company wanted me to follow. Not because I simply didn’t want to do it, but because I have many years experience in the natural food industry and I guess I wanted to share my expertise with them. ;) I’ve never been fired in my life, but I feel like you have to get fired at least once, right?

Anyway, onto the food from yesterday! Who can NOT believe it is March?! I turn 29 this month…

Coffee: coffee + 1/2 & 1/2. I haven’t gotten to Whole Foods yet to pick up my coconut creamer, but I must say, the 1/2 & 1/2 tastes great. Mornings have been really easy this week, after waking up naturally at 8am in Mexico (6am LA time) my body is used to waking earlier which makes it possible to fit in a few hours of work before breakfast! I’m hoping this will stay with me forever!

Workout: I haven’t gone to yoga in a few weeks and I’ve really been missing the effects. Now that yoga isn’t a matter of walking across the street, I need to make a much better effort to ensure I’m getting it in. I really do need it. I took a hot-power fusion class, sweat a ton and could tell that it had been a while, it was really hard! Post-yoga I rehydrated with some coconut water on the way home.

I put some steel cut oats on the stove for breakfast and then got distracted with a work phone call. Sure enough, 20 minutes later, and my oats were black. I decided toast and eggs would be a much quicker breakfast and considering that it was 11am, I needed food ASAP!

Breakfast: 2 eggs + 2 slices french meadow sprouted bread with earth balance.

Lunch: romaine lettuce + 2 slices turkey + mustard + mayo with a few carrots + celery. This was a meal of pure convenience and something I could eat during the 5 minutes at home between a friend date and some work errands. It did the trick. The Taster saw the picture and said, “that looks awful and why are you eating my turkey?” :)

After my errands I took my work to a coffee shop for a change of pace. A little more coffee + 1/2 & 1/2. I’m hoping this helps me stay up past 9pm tonight…

Snack: miso soup x 2 while I was getting things ready for dinner. I’m loving miso soup. I heat up water, add a scoop of miso, a few dashes of ume plum vinegar, wakame and some green onions if I have them.

Dinner: wild cod + tartar sauce +asparagus + sweet potato rounds. The vegetable components of this meal were great and very tasty – the fish? Not so much. The texture was terrible, not sure if it is the quality at Trader Joe’s or the fact that it had been frozen/thawed a few times.

I think I’ll finish off the day with some chocolate…

Spill – have you ever been fired from a job? I want to hear some good stories!!
