Hi Guys,

Thanks for the wise words on my “lack of posting” post. I just wanted to let you know what was going on with me these days.

I’m thinking that my next daily eats post should be another themed “diet or meal plan” post like I have done previously! They are so fun for me to do – hopefully for you as well.

5.2.12

Beverages: coffee + 1/2 & 1/2, water, green tea. The standards.

Breakfast: It had been a few days since I had eaten eggs so I was majorly craving them. 2 eggs + 1/2 hemp bagel topped with coconut oil. Possibly one of the best breakfasts ever…

Workout: 45 spin class with my favorite teacher. It was hard, sweaty and wonderful – all at the same time.

Lunch: Was eaten in two parts – I had some things that absolutely needed to be shipped out for work today, so I had to get them ready and drop them off before I could take the time to eat a real meal.

part I: kale & spinach dip (trader joe’s) + crunchmaster ancient grain crackers (that I brought home from the Celiac Disease Foundation Conference last weekend).

part II: lemon chicken & arugula salad (trader joe’s) on a bed of spinach. The salad is delicious and has a couscous and quinoa mix with arugula and chicken, but pretty small (about 300 calories) and definitely lacking in the veggies.

Snack: bowl of strawberries + kashi cereal (honey sunshine) + coconut milk.

Wine: :)

Dinner: I am working on a quinoa salad recipe, so this was the test run. It contained quinoa with a dressing, asparagus, leeks and shrimp. It was delicious and I’ll get the recipe for you soon! I served it on about 2 cups of spinach, wilted to bulk it up a bit.

I’m nibbling on some jelly beans that we’ve had for months now and headed to bed!

Have a wonderful weekend! Any fun plans?

cucumber & basil egg salad

I have always loved a good egg salad. I mean, I absolutely love eggs so it is only natural for me to love them in every form. When I came across a recipe for a Cucumber-Basil Egg Salad on the epicurious app (do you have it? you should!) it just sounded like my new favorite

When it comes to Anthony Bourdain, most people fall under the love or the hate categories. (source) I am one of the people who love him. Yes, he can be a little rude, a little crass and sometimes a total ass, but I find him to be completely real, very unapologetic and totally hilarious. In

daily eats: 4.2.12

Is it really April? I’m still not convinced. Coffee: I started with some coffee + 1/2 & 1/2 but just wasn’t feeling the coffee so switched to some green tea. Some days that happens – I have no idea why. Breakfast: I hadn’t had eggs in a few days so I was craving them. Eggs

old school superfoods

Not a day goes by where we don’t hear of the latest and greatest health foods (think goji berries, chia seeds, kombucha, etc.) and it might make us look in our own cupboards and groan with the thought of another $150 trip to Whole Foods. Today though, I’m not going to tell you about the

Food was the main priority at our wedding. Well, I guess you could say our priority was that our guests have a great time, and to me, that means eating and drinking well. We didn’t have a sit-down meal, but instead had stations – each station had a few different items (salad, entree, sides) with

daily eats: 3.20.12

Hello Friends and Happy Spring! 3.20.12 Coffee: Still on the 1/2 & 1/2 kick… Breakfast 1: 1 packet instant oats + 1 Tbsp almond butter. I ate about half of it as I was leaving to work out shortly after and needed something, but didn’t want too much. ¬†Pretty ugly and very boring! Workout: Today
