Caramelized Fruit & Cheese

Good morning sweet friends. How’d you sleep?

I fell asleep a bit early last night after Marco and I finished Grease! It was his first time ever seeing it. I think I am a bigger fan that he is? I love it!

Anyway, falling asleep early made it much easier to wake up at 5:00 this morning, so here I am.



eggs toast and chicken sausage

Breakfast was eggs, Ezekiel toast, and chicken sausage. I had a craving for sausage, so I picked some up at TJ’s to add to our breakfasts 🙂

soul keeping and coffee

After breakfast, I relaxed with Marco as he fell asleep like I always do and read my book, Soul Keeping. You guys… I’m not that far into it, and it’s already so good.

The part that’s hit me the most so far is “eliminating hurry” from our lives. This relates so much to what I teach my Clients, and relates so much to my own life. I’m really enjoying this book so far. I’ll keep you all updated.

Step at 8:30

Next, I went to a Step Class with my Daddy. Our usual Wednesday teacher had his last day on Sept. 10. Sigh… I really loved his class! Yesterday’s workout was still super fun though, so I was really glad for that. I’m hoping we get another great teacher to take his place.


toast with melted cheese and fruit

After the Gym I came home and made this… HEAVENLY. Seriously. Make it. NOW.

sautéing asian pear

First, sauté asian pear or thin apple slices in olive oil. Next, sprinkle a little bit of gorgonzola cheese on a slice of Ezekiel (non-toasted). Then, once the fruit slices are golden brown on each side, layer them over the gorgonzola, and add a slice of havarti on top. Place it under the broiler for a couple minutes until the cheese is nice and melty. Enjoy! I re-heated the rest of my morning coffee and enjoyed it with this snack/small meal.


taco salad homemade

A few hours later, I had lunch. Leftover’s from our taco night. Romaine, kidney beans, onions, ground beef, mexican blend cheese, and a few chippies crunched up on top + salsa verde. Mmm, mmm, good!


paige's favorite green smoothie

Ah, this smoothie was so refreshing in the middle of a hot day. This was one of the best Paige’s Favorite Green Smoothie’s” I have ever made… I don’t know if I was just really craving it, or what… But I did add a new ingredient to the original recipe – Greek Yogurt! Just about 1/2 cup. Oh, and that spill was definitely accidental. Ha!

dark chocolate

I also had a piece of dark chocolate. My bar is almost gone, so I’m savoring it 🙂


turkey burgers

Dinner was Turkey Burgers on honey wheat buns with a side of asparagus. Can’t wait to have leftovers today! I sautéed onions & mushrooms to add inside. So yummy… All of my food yesterday really hit the spot. This burger had: mayo, mustard, Organic ketchup, turkey burger, sautéed onions and mushrooms, fresh tomatoes, and romaine lettuce. I would’ve added avocado to the mix, but we wanted to save our one avo for tonights Indian Food. Mmm! That will be on the blog tomorrow 🙂

Not on the blog tomorrow, but definitely available to you: this post. This will be delivered to your inbox around 6:00a PDT… Make sure you’re signed up for my Friday email posts.

So, back to what we were talking about earlier, eliminating hurry. 

Who want’s to slow down with me today? How nice would it be to give someone your full attention today and not make them feel like there is somewhere more important that you should be or something more important that you should be doing? How much would this help us to feel calm, and have more patience?
