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?

favorite ways to eat avocados

(source) I’ve been doing some (delicious) experimenting with avocados lately. The health benefits of avocado are wonderful ones: lots of fiber, potassium, vitamins C,K, folate and B6 so they are something that I like to make sure I’m eating on a regular basis and I find it can satisfy me in a way similar to

daily eats: 4.18.12

Last weekend we had good friends in town and we had a BLAST! We ate great food (Umami, Lisa Vanderpump’s SUR and our neighborhood favorite Basix Cafe), went out on the Sunset Strip (Chateau Marmont, The Standard, The Hollywood Den) and then I needed to detox. I throw around the word “detox” a lot, but

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

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

So I kind of got fired from one of my side jobs last week.  Oddly enough, I was actually more proud than upset. I’ve never been one to really stand up for myself and tell people exactly how I feel, but I was pushing back on most of the procedures this company wanted me to

Hi Friends! I hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was busy packing, working and running last minute errands for our trip. I also saw Dr. Chase from the show House and it totally made my Saturday. Sometimes I feel like a 13 year-old girl. (He is SO cute!)  (source) We are currently in
