oh but back to this….it was like a yam pudding heaven….and i was in yam pudding heaven when i ate it….it made work and school all better..and it was made with love from my love so i felt a sentimental value nourishing my body too.

a car that made me happy all week!

..it was spending time with its honda friend while i was at school..

have a great week beauties!

a week of green and orange

its been such a busy week: hence the no blogging status!

so busy that i have not had time to do the usual lunch prepping everyday.

when this happens i turn to a few of my go to whole foods options: they happened to be a lot of orange and a lot of green-including the repetition of mango almost everyday!

anyone know how good carrots and almond butter is?

i am finally aware….it is a¬†definite¬†goodie!

 

whole foods goodies:

includes:

raw kale salad-with pine nuts and dried cranberries

brussel sprout and golden beet salad- with walnuts and thyme

kale and beet salad- with feta and dried cranberries

egg and cheese breakfast wrap- it was a first but really did the job!

caesar salad- with a few salad bar extras

and this delicious once in a while muffin….

yes its bran….but yes i love it !

honey bran muffin with walnuts on top:

what are your favorite quick grabs??

a little bit of us this week:

she gets a bit competitive with me for ryes attention!

ps: i got a new car!!

it has changed my life….i am in love with it!

how cute is this:

such a guy:

chow!

 

 

 

a friend for me, a friend for alice.

tuesday night my friend audrey came over.

rye is still out of town so it was an almost all girls night.

audrey brought her dog-alice’s very good friend paco.

dave didn’t have any visitors special for him but he was happy to include himself in everyone elses visit.

we made a lovely although quite large arrangement of deliciousness:

 

needless to say we had some leftovers although nobody was complaining.

alice and paco had a lot of fun too:

 

ramen

Thursday I had the remaining brussel sprouts from dinner the night before in a beautiful salad

ps did i mention ryan made them and they were¬†ridiculously¬†amazing! ok, well there i said it now, brussel sprouts i am such a fan of yours ūüėČ

followed by a delicious snack before my workout!

if you have not yet discovered the ‘sumo’ tangerines, you have to try them, they are seasonal and amazing!

i normally am not a citrus fruit kind of gal but i have been pretty into these lately.

accompanied by some 365 honey morning o’s, chia/fiber blend and¬†unsweetened¬†vanilla almond milk:

friday i treated myself to my fave veggie sandwich!

complimented by a zevia ginger rootbeer and ketchup:

ps the zevia is 0 cal. and its sweetened by stevia. it is really not bad. the root-beer is my favorite.

 

 

i was really craving a pre-made smoothie juice, i try to stay away from them for the most part because of all of the sugar but every now and then is fine. i felt really good after i drank it and it fueled me during a great workout.

rye was getting ready for his trip all day. hes leaving town for work for almost 2 weeks. he brought home these ‘healthy’ ramens. i was really not to excited about them, but i was wrong. i grew up on top ramen and always loved it..(i know its a terrible thing to admit)

this ramen hit the spot!

we threw in the leftover chinese from the night before.

the salads were huge..i couldnt even finish half of mine. but it was delicious!

i am going to miss my sweet man!

 

busy, work, love, school, workout food & busy

oh i have missed you!

it has been a busy, busy week..ive fallen so far behind..

there were days, and a series of events that seemed very similar at times..

there was coffee of course:

to save on money, i tried to recreate the coffee bean iced coffee i love so much..i only managed to succeed once.

and lunch at work:

many of which happened to be tasty salads:

some salads were special with leftover chinese from valentines day and home made dipping sauce.

others were special with left over kabocha squash.

there was more kabocha snacking on the drive to school:

i switched it up from time to time:

delicious veggie sandwich from a deli at the corner. .. why is mayonnaise and toasted bread so amazing..?

i tried a new yogurt after i was given a free sample at work. It was amazing! love it. i added chia:

i had peanut butter-almond butter & jam oatmeal of course:

i started school:

i got some girl time with alice in the healing outdoors:

my wonderful husband made me many dinners this week, due to school and study time.

many consisted of beautiful salads:

one with a delightful chipotle mahi burger with cheese.

and kombucha’s to aid in homework time:

alice was her usual cute self, and didnt fail to keep me company and give me deep, thoughful glares from time to time.

it was an eventful and good week.

dog park and a snack

after breakfast my sasha came over for a visit and brought sweet ceci with her.

ceci is getting older ūüė¶

she and alice got along. alice was glad to have a wise and knowledgeable girl around.

sash helped me finish the runaways.

we did what we do best..

computer and cozy time with the dogs.

we stopped for coffee:

i got a decaf sash got some tea….seems that alice was eyeing mine:

alice did a lot of this..

and more..

and more sitting..

she really thinks she is a person..i had to remind her to pleasee play like the other dogs..

she didnt listen of course.

when we got home sash requested a snack:

pesto veggie sandwich with cheese and love.

another cheese pear and almond butter morning

to start the morning off, ive concluded this isnt really working out:

i wasnt to hungry this morning but i was very much in need of this today:

the real thing is better but this was helpful. the weather has been so dry.

my salad thursday was so tasty i had it again yesterday for lunch:

greens, dried cranberries, follow your heart honey mustard with lemon, jarlsberg and a pear:

+  + 

post haste i had:

chai..was feeling like i needed a little break from coffee for a day. i added my favorite trader joes vanilla half and half and a few packets of truvia and cinnamon:

and before my journey home i had the most beautiful apple:

complimented of course with only the best: honey almond butter/peanut butter delicious-ness
