Practiced and filmed our 10 minute ab routine plus did #purelytfitlife strong sexy arm workout (we did 3 rounds).
Gathered our juice ingredients.
So good! For the past few days we have been juicing apples again in our juices.
We took at break from apples during our 30 day gut healing and continued to not have them until now. We wanted to make our juices more ‘green’ so we knew we needed the addition of an apple to help with the flavor. So far we feel we are handling apples (well juiced apples) well. We have not experienced any extra or new gas/bloating from it.
Later we tried doing something different with our leftover pulp. We have been keeping up with making pulp crackers but felt like something different yesterday.
We decided to use our veggie pulp leftover from the juice to make our egg omelette. And it turned out great!!! We each enjoyed 3 eggs with about 1/2 – 2/3 cup of pulp along with a bed of lettuce and some coconut oil. Definitely will be having that more often!
Next we enjoyed some perfect fit protein mixed with coconut oil as a pre-workout snack. We normally workout first thing in the morning but yesterday we had some things to do so pushed our workout until the afternoon. So we ate something before hand as usually we workout on an empty stomach. And this simple protein with some coconut oil we feel makes great pre-workout fuel.
After workout enjoyed some tuna with brussel sprouts.
Tasted some recipes for our next cookbook. Trying hard not to eat them all as we still need to take pictures of them
Later enjoyed avocado pudding… of course. Seems to be our late afternoon snack of choice lately.
Dinner was a very messy grass-fed beef zucchini nori rolls with a side of sauted swiss chard and fennel. Even though our rolls did not work out the best, they still tasted amazing with a drizzle of olive oil over them.
After dinner we felt like baking. So grabbed our Purely Classic Recipe cookbook and made some goodies.
Made gluten-free brownies from our cookbook for Gary to enjoy (we are still trying to make these grain-free).
We made our favorite go-to dessert — protein thin mints! We each enjoyed two
Overall these past few days we are both still doing well. Michelle’s legs are starting to itch really bad again and Lori had a little break out but her face is calming back down a little. We both are being aware of our diet without stressing over it. Just taking it one day at a time with knowing what things now might need to be changed.
Here is a quote that we read again yesterday and it hit home. As we both are going through some ups and downs with figuring out our bodies. We both have been experiencing some flare-ups. We are trying to stay true to our bodies and honor them, but it is hard sometimes when you just want to eat something but you know your body will react to it.
We are doing our best to stay positive about everything, but we even have our moments where we struggle to stay positive. As we are human and have those bad days. We know our journey will continue and we will continue to learn each day! We know that there will be good and bad days but to take each day as a new day to learn something!!
Love this quote!
Remember it is not lost time, but time that has helped you learn and grow in some way!
