Daily Eats, Coffee Shop Work, and Girlfriends

Good-morning friends!

I’m here with a daily eats post to share Wednesday and Thursday with you. It’s been a good day, a good month, and an exciting year over here. Lot’s going on both in my personal life and business – I’ll have some exciting updates to share with you soon. Stay tuned!

Before we dive in, I want to remind us all that these posts are not for comparison. Rather, these posts are here to provide you with inspiration for food ideas and to give YOU the freedom and permission to listen to YOUR BODY as I listen to mine, apart from food rules or dieting.

Thank you so much for being here and I hope you enjoy! Leave a comment when you finish reading!


Early Morning Work Sesh With A Cappuccino And Dark Chocolate + Almond GoMacro Bar.

Wednesday morning started out with an early morning work-sesh with my friend Asia at her office. While there, I had a cappuccino (Asia brought it to me – sweet!) and a dark chocolate + almond GoMacro bar. Yum!

Large Black Coffee And A DELISH Turkey + Pesto Sandwich From Kreuzberg in SLO, CA

After working with Asia, I met my friend Brittany to work for a few more hours from Kruezburg coffee shop. While there, I got a large black coffee and this DELISH turkey + pesto sandwich. So yum! Kruezburg coffee and Sally Loo’s in SLO both do something right with their veggies. So fresh!

Best Work Interruption Ever From My Friend and Her Sweet Babe.

My friend Jenna and her little babe, Kane, came to visit. It was the best work interruption ever. Love this little smiley! I get to hang with him this weekend at our friend Mallory’s wedding. I can’t wait! Lot’s of dancing with him in my near future.

Leftover Blaze Pizza With Sausage, Mozzarella, Peppers, and Red Sauce. I Added Olives, Arugula, Onion, Bleu Cheese Crumbles, and Mushrooms.

When I got home from coffee I was HUNGRY. I had two slices of leftover pizza with a little ranch. So good!

Plain Greek Yogurt With Blackberries, Chia Seeds, And A Spoonful of PB. Holy cow this tasted like a PB&J. Total accidental delish combo!

However, didn’t do the trick hunger-wise, so I had some plain greek yogurt with blackberries, chia seeds, and a spoonful of PB. Holy cow this tasted like a PB&J. Total accidental delish combo! Try it!

Cruciferous Blend Salad from Costco With Avocado and Feta.

I rested for a bit after my yogurt and then walked to the gym to meet Marco once he was off work. If you follow me on Instagram (@paigeschmidt) this is when I was filming a million videos of the sunset and my walk because it was STUNNING. So pretty!

Anyway, after the gym I showered and changed into PJ’s, poured a glass of wine, and put dinner together. This yummy salad (it’s the cruciferous blend salad from Costco), leftover meat sauce (from the night we had zucchini noodles) mixed with a NEW pasta – Banza chickpea pasta!

Cruciferous Blend Salad from Costco, Banza Chickpea Pasta With Meat Sauce, And Wine on the Side.

Have you tried the Banza pasta yet? I got it at Targs and it was actually pretty good! You’ll notice it easily when you walk to the pasta isle. The boxes are bright orange and they have like 10 different pastas! Easy to spot.


Coffee Date With Friends! Quiche Hit The Spot For Breakfast

Thursday morning started out with a coffee date with my girlfriends Asia and Brittany. No work, just friendship and coffee. And quiche for me! Breakfast! Sooo good. Hit the spot, for sure!

Love My Girlfriends! Two Hours of Chatting At Our Favorite Coffee Shop.

My girlfriends. Gosh, I love them… We spent the first two hours of our day together just chatting.

When I got home I uploaded my new updated my 1-Day Intuitive Eating Guide! Have you grabbed it yet? If not, go to the top of my site, enter your name and email and it’ll be on it’s way! If you’re already on my list, check the email I sent out yesterday (I added a link in there for ya!).

This guide is meant to walk you through a day of intuitive eating so that you can experience a taste of how freeing it is to let go of your food rules and learn to listen to your body instead (aka, learn how to listen to what feels good, consistently, so that YOU can feel good, consistently)!

Banza Pasta With Spinach And Meat Sauce

I did some work in my home office for a bit then took a quick break to eat a small bowl of leftover pasta before heading to a coffee shop to meet girlfriends to work.

Coffee Shop Working With Unsweetened Passion-Ginger Iced Tea.

At the coffee shop I got a passion-ginger iced tea. Unsweetened. So perfectly tasty! Ah, so refreshing. It was 71 degrees in SLO yesterday. I hear some of you are having blizzards? Send some cooler weather!

My Go-To Snack: Kind Dark Chocolate Mocha Bar

I stayed at coffee for a few hours and though they had food there, I wanted to wait to eat again until I got home because I knew Marco and I were going out for dinner. I had this KIND bar to tide me over (I always keep bars in my bag).

Pre-Dinner Snack: Two Slices of Brown Rice Bread Toasted With Cream Cheese, Turkey, Avocado, Tomato, Onion, And Spinach.

When I got home I made a little sandwich to hold me until dinnertime: two slices of brown rice bread, toasted, with cream cheese, turkey, avocado, tomato, onion, and spinach. SO GOOD. Will probably remake this today!

Pre-Dinner Drink: Gin + Lime at Marston's in SLO, CA

Later that evening Marco and I walked to dinner at Marston’s – our favorite. I ordered gin + lime to drink. Fav! Marco got… guess?

YEP! Coors Light!

One Of Our Favorites: Loaded Potato Skins With Ranch On The Side

To start, we shared potato skins. They’re our favorite!

Steak Salad With Balsamic And Topped With Avocado And Red Onion. Mmm! All of it was so good.

For my entree I got a steak salad with balsamic. SO good. The steak was PERFECT. That avocado on top with the red onion. Mmm! All of it was so good.

We walked around the Farmer’s Market after dinner and then back home for an early bedtime.

Other updates:

TAX RETURN season is upon us!

Which means my March and April calendars for coaching are filling up.

It tends to be a busy time of year for me as many clients sign up for coaching using their returns. What a better way to celebrate a return? (I might be bias, but hey!)

If you’d like to work together I’d love to schedule you for a Discovery Session. Book a time in March or April HERE and I’ll follow up with a personal email to you.

Also, for the first time EVER I’m offering a smaller package than my six-month program. It’s like my six-month program had a baby – it’s a mini 4 session package. If you’re interested, email me (paige@paigeschmidt.com). I’d love to get you started.

If you’d prefer to have a Discovery Session first, book that here, and from there you’ll be able to choose the package that is best for you.

Have a WONDERFUL weekend, friends! We’ll be at a wedding Saturday and have some plans with friends today and Sunday. It’s a weekend packed full of social. Come hang on Insta with me and say hi – @paigeschmidt!
