Meal Plan #4: Quinoa, Kale, and Chicken Sausage

Good afternoon all!

Today has been full of moving. I think this is the first time I’ve sat down, other than breakfast.

My day started with a Step II Class with my Dad. After class, I went for a 2 hour walk around and around downtown Ventura and to the beach. I stopped for a soy-latte too, all while chatting with my sweet friend Simi on the phone.

It’s kind of fun that I’m getting here later today, because now I get to share with you yesterdays eats and a bit of today’s. Usually, you don’t see my Friday eats since I don’t post on Saturdays.

Yesterday started with a one hour beach walk with a Client of mine (Always Ashten), whose Birthday Party I get to be apart of tonight! Of course, soy lattes for the walk 🙂



Breakfast was this handful of blueberries, and then…

breakfast scramble

This scramble (eggs, potato, bell pepper, onion, spinach, and pepper plant), and then…

toast with jelly

This small piece of toast with Strawberry Jelly.

Story: I started making breakfast (scramble) and realized we only had 1 egg. That wasn’t going to work for me, so I grabbed a handful of blueberries, ran down the market and bought eggs. I came home, made my scramble and wanted toast with it, but *thought* the eggs with potato would be enough. After I finished, I still wanted toast/jelly so I made a small piece 🙂

Do you see how beautiful the beach was yesterday? View from our balcony.


green smoothie

For lunch I made a Green Smoothie with added blueberries and strawberries. So yummy!


carrot stick

In the afternoon I cut up lot’s veggies and lettuce that I had in my fridge. If I don’t prep it, I won’t use it! I snacked on  one carrot stick and one celery with peanut butter as I was chopping everything up

I got off work early yesterday, 3:00pm. Two of my Clients rescheduled, and it gave me a great break in the day. At 3:00, Marco and I went to the Gym together, and then came home and went to the pool with friends. Around 6:30/7:00 we came back home and I made us such a yummy dinner!


Kale quinoa and chicken sausage

Kale, Quinoa, and Chicken Sausage (#4 on this weeks Meal Plan)in a large pot, sauté onions, garlic, and sliced bell pepper. Add an entire bag of chopped kale and cover. Once the kale cooks down, add in pre-cooked slice organic chicken sausages (thanks Maria!). Once everything has cooked together (and cooked down a lot) add in pre-cooked/warmed quinoa. Mix everything together, add sea-salt and pepper, and ENJOY! (Season as you’d like)

I couldn’t wait to have leftovers of this today!


movie snack

As we watched Weed’s last night, I really wanted a crunchy snack. First thought was chips & salsa, second thought was “oh! You cut up all of those fresh crunch veggies!” So, I went with the 2nd and was totally happy 🙂

Onto today!


eggs and toast

At 6:30 this morning I had eggs & toast with Marco.

I went to Step II at 8:30 with Dad.


leftover dinner

At 10:00 when I got home I had leftovers from last night. So friggin’ good!

After this, I walked for two hours while on the phone with my friend Simi.

I came home, showered off, and made a Green Smoothie with added Blueberries. Yum!

That’s all I’ve got for you today! Tonight, Marco and I are going on a dinner date before Ashten’s Birthday! I think we’ll land ourselves at Lure, where I’ll oder sautéed spinach, seared Ahi, and a potato cake. Ah, I can’t wait!

I’ll see you all here Monday 🙂

Love, Paige
