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 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!

 

 

 

never fail breakfast

this is a breakfast i just cant ever get enough of and always seems to be ever so satisfying.

this is why i have had it all week!

ode to cereal….

special coffee at work:

good black coffee with a few of my own special toppers:

 

breakfast is complete!

special coffee

dedicated to jenny, aka “http://fitgirlfoodie.wordpress.com/”

fancy coffee at home:

  • brew some coffee- i have organic peets blend at the moment
  • get some delicious creamer and toppings: i got the “foam” from whole foods-its a 0 calorie vanilla “cappuccino” foam that goes on like whipped cream, it evaporates quickly but leaves a really yummy flavor lingering in your coffee, and it looks really special at first. whipped cream is good too!
  • add some sweetener-i like truvia
  • and a dash of cinnamon.
  • and have a lovely morning!

and for saturday morning breakfast:

after a good 2 hours of morning essay writing i decided on a mango-orange-green smoothie 😉

  • 1 mango
  • 1 orange
  • a few handfuls of spinach
  • a little almond milk
  • 2 ice cubes

it was a really good one!

i also treated myself to some peanut butter jelly pancakes!

..its embarrassing..i used ready to be made mix that comes a package that looks like a whipped cream bottle..

even more embarrassing it took me a few tries to make them..alice helped me get rid of the ones that didn’t make it onto the plate.

overall they were good. topped with a little peanut butter, a bit of strawberry jam and a dash of raw honey.

and how cute was this sleepy head that i walked in on:

the smoothie and pancakes helped to fuel a good workout.

  • 30 min. stair stepper
  • squats
  • biceps curls
  • row
  • kickbacks
  • abs
  • plank

when i got home i did a mega clean up! the house is tidy ready for ryan to be back in it!

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.

ill have the usual please

this morning, a lovely sunday morning, a sunday morning that longed to be spend taking advantage of my big warm cozy bed..

however..

i was on my way to work before the crack of dawn.

i was a productive early riser,

i picked up coffee for myself and two nice gals,

it was to early on a sunday..so coffee bean was closed..

i settled for starbucks.

coffee bean supports me in the sense that sundays are a day for sleeping in.

i took a good morning photo for rye guy in his comfy sweater that i borrowed for a dose of sentiment:

and before that i packed my fave..peanut butter almond butter jam oats..

really not a short way to say that. but neither butters can be left out. they are of equal importance.

and i even tried the strawberry preserves for the first time in the mix.

they were lovely as i had assumed.

they even made my oats look beautiful all swirled in and strawberry like.

see for yourself:

and then topped and swirled:

and then it was over..

the red white and blue thing was an accident..didnt mean for it to turn out so patriotic..

after work i came home to my husband and we took our girl out to runyon for a hike.

the day was beautiful and the sun was healing.

ryan is still a little under the weather.

i will take care of him.
