You Want Cream But Have None – Ice Cream Coffee

Good morning! It’s raining here in SLO 🙂

cappuccino scout coffee slo

Yesterday started out with a coffee date at Scout Coffee with a new SLO friend, Jenni (she has a great Website). I ordered a cappuccino, like always. Love their caps 🙂

eggs and toast breakfast

When I came home Marco and I had eggs & toast together and then went to the Gym (leg day).

kale and quinoa with chicken lunch

For lunch, we had leftovers from the night before: kale, quinoa, and chicken sausage with avocado, soy sauce, and some sriracha. This time, we had tomato soup on the side. I ate about half of this — I didn’t have much of an appetite for lunch.

black coffee happy cup

I worked through the day and had a mad coffee craving after reading Simi’s post.

Guess what I did? About halfway through my cup o’ black coffee I decided I wanted cream & sugar. Problem with this craving? We didn’t have any. So, I added a t. of french vanilla ice cream to my coffee, reheated it, and mixed it up with my frother. It was so yummy and to my surprise, it wasn’t super sweet! It’s a nice treat to have on a rainy day (kinda reminds me of hot cocoa in coffee but with vanilla).

make your own balsamic

In between my last two health coaching clients I made dressing for a salad that I was taking to dinner at Jenni’s. She and her hubby invited Marco and I over for dinner. Talk about a nice thing to do for someone who just moved to town 🙂

This dressing was about 2T. balsamic, 2T. olive oil, 1t. dijon mustard, and 1t. honey (give or take from any ingredient depending on your tastebuds). Put it all in the food processor, blend and you’re good to go! If you don’t have a FP, shake ingred’s vigorously in a jar!

make your own urbane cafe salad

This is the salad I made for dinner: baby spring mix, feta cheese, mandarin oranges, and my homemade dressing. It was liked 🙂 Thanks Urbane Cafe for the inspiration 😉

homemade simple salad

Around 3:30 I made a salad for myself using this same dressing since I knew I wouldn’t be eating until about 7:00 and I hadn’t eaten much for lunch. This salad was arugula, baby spinach, SuperSeedz, sliced turkey, avocado, and my homemade dressing. So good 🙂

dinner with friends

Dinner at Jenni’s house was my salad, her homemade bread, roasted veggies, and steak with her chimichurry sauce. Everything was homemade and super yummy, especially Jenni’s chimichurri sauce — I’ve gotta make that myself! Here’s an epicurious recipe I think I’ll try. If you want to see more of Jenni’s cooking, check out her recipe page here.

Who is going to love it?

You’re going to love my e-Book, “Finding Balance,” if:

  • You want to hear that I can relate to your feeling out of balance, and finally found what works for me
  • You want to know the strategies that work in my own life around balancing: eating, relationships, social life, spirituality, finances, organizing your time, fitting in exercise, taking care of yourself, fun/joy and soo much more.
  • This book is definitely a Saturday morning, in your PJ’s, next to the fireplace with coffee and journal in hand, kinda read.
  • It’s 23 pages, beautifully designed, conversational (easy to read/relate to), and guides you swiftly through all of the different topics
  • Hear me now: I wrote this book for the girl who reads Healthy Hits the Spot and finds inspiration, but wants to know even more. Something to keep in her iPad (or print it and keep it on her shelf). I wrote this book for the girl who feels like she’s ready to find balance and more fulfillment in each area of her life (I checked, and there wasn’t much on the market for creating balance in a woman’s life). I also wrote this for the girl who wants a taste of Health Coaching, but maybe isn’t quite ready to commit yet. So much of what I talk about in the book, I also talk about in Coaching. This is a book that I want each of you to have. From my story to yours, I’ve created this book to be of great value to you and your own journey (I would have loved to have this book).
