Good-morning beauties. And happy Monday. I’m here today to share the other half of last weeks eats with you, as promised. Last week was a busy, fun-filled week, so it was nice to get some rest in this weekend. Yesterday, Marco and I totally relaxed after Church. We even got a nap in!
As a reminder, the purpose for sharing my eats is to set an example that you CAN ditch diets, eat intuitively, and feel great in your body without calorie counting, diets, or deprivation. I teach this to all of my clients, and now they’re able to be examples too. You can see THEIR stories here.
Breakfast: Honey greek yogurt, banana, blueberries, hemp granola, and peanut butter
Mid-morning: Two of moms homemade raw cacao & coconut cookies with tea
Late lunch: Vegetarian chili with croutons, mozzarella cheese, and cilantro plus a side salad with blue cheese, cherry tomatoes, and a little bit of bacon
For dinner, I went out with a group of friends to celebrate restaurant month. The Granada in SLO had an awesome three course menu that we were all excited to try.
By the way, I posted this photo on Instagram and people were surprised at how tall I am. I’m 5’9″ in case you’re wondering (plus, in this photo I’m also wearing 2″ booties). It’s funny how when you only see someone through photos, you never really know!
1st Course: Ceviche (possibly the best ceviche I’ve had – I can be super picky with ceviche)
2nd Course: Butternut squash soup (spicy & delicious!)
3rd Course: Lemon butter cod, “pureed potatoes” (aka, mashed potatoes), and sautéd spinach. Yum! This meal was deeeeelicous and I got to take half of my fish home to enjoy the next day.
Morning tea: Two of moms cookies plus my recent favorite, matcha tea latte (1 tsp. matcha, 10 oz hot water, 1 Tbsp. coconut oil, and 1 tsp. honey blended up)
To continue my morning, I went on a hike with my friend Brittany. Ah, it was so beautiful out this day, and the sun & walking early in the morning gave me so much good energy.
Late breakfast: When I got home from my long hike/walk with my friend, I made a late breakfast of yogurt, fruit, and granola.
Lunch: Leftover dinner from the night before
Petite-treat: A square of dark chocolate & a tiny tangerine.
Late night snack: On Thursday night I went with friends to a conference called “Ten Talks.” The event was basically 10 entrepreneurs sharing their inspiring stories in ten minutes. Pretty inspiring!
The event ran way later than expected, and I was starving when I got home. Before bed I made a snack plate of crackers, brie, and olive tapenade. Mmm, totally hit the spot.
Morning tea: Friday morning started out with cozy blankets, tea, and one of moms cookies.
It felt so fun to start most AM’s last week with tea & a cookie.
After my cozy time, I went over to my friend Asia’s house who was hosting a HUGE clothing swap charity event (all of the clothes that were left at the end of the night – which was A TON – were donate to a women’s shelter. I helped set up for a couple of hours and then ran home for a quick late breakfast.
Late breakfast: Two gluten free waffles and yogurt with granola & blueberries.
After breakfast I ran back to Asia’s and helped again until 2:00 PM. The clothing swap was SO fun. I’m thinking nearly 100 people showed up! It was definitely a success. We turned Asia’s house into a small crazy-clothes-filled boutique.
At 2:00 PM I met up with a friend to work from Starbucks for a couple of hours. Once we were done working, I went back home, made a super late lunch, and then took off back to the clothing swap to help.
Late lunch: A super toasty cheese & tomato sandwich with pickles on the side. EXACTLY what I was craving. Ah, this one hit the spot oh so good.
Dinner: Side salad + a small bowl of vegetarian chili
Petite-treat: One of moms cookie
To end my Friday night, I went to my friend Jenni’s house to watch her little one for a couple of hours so she could enjoy a night out with her husband. It was a great, fulfilling week and I was totally pooped at the end of it. Saturday called for sleeping in, for sure.
I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and got whatever you needed whether it was fun, rest, or being productive. Hope you enjoyed these eats, as well. I’ll see you back here Wednesday!
