Yesterday we both did our #purelyfitlife workout #8 our 18 minute interval workout.
Each day we wake up – focused and motivated to move the body. Now, not every workout we feel absolutely amazing, we’re not perfect. But we still aim to focus just on that workout and do our very best.
Believe in YOURSELF!
First up we made our green juice to sip on with the rest of our breakfast. This green juice was romaine, kale, fresh ginger, cucumber and grapefruit.
We have been wanting to try plantains for a few days now. We have had them before many years ago. Needless to say… we adore them!
We enjoyed a plantain with 2 whole eggs along with ghee. We cooked our plantains in coconut oil on our cast iron skillet. It was perfection!!
We got two types of plantains – a green and a more ripe one. We decided to try the more ripe one to enjoy with our eggs for breakfast.
Baked Plantain Chips in coconut oil
1 plantain (we used one that was yellow with some black/brown spots)
1 tbsp ghee or coconut oil
Using a knife cut the plantain lengthwise and peel off the peel. Can be hard, so take your time.
Once peeled, chop into circles and then place in hot oiled pan. We put 1 tbsp coconut oil into a cast iron pan and fried up for about 15 minutes.
Perfect crispy plantain chips in coconut oil!
We both loved loved this meal. Felt great afterwards which is always a big plus!
We also enjoyed some starbucks coffee and split a banana to complete the rest of our breakfast.
We have the best dad 🙂 He sent us Florida oranges and grapefruit! We are excited to add these to our morning green juices for something different.
Lunch was our last bit of homemade beef liver meatballs, half avocado, shredded raw carrot with ACV, and some sauteed spinach. All topped with coconut oil.
Took Jax to a local park to do some training and let him run around. He is doing sooo well with his training. I am a proud mom 🙂
Lori: My dinner I did it a little different compared to Michelle. I rolled up my mashed avocado and canned salmon in a nori wrap and served it along with rutabaga and turnips, topped with coconut oil. YUM!
Michelle: What I did for my dinner was avocado mashed with canned salmon and slices of rutabaga and turnips all rolled into a nori wrap. And drizzled it with coconut oil.
This was very messy to eat, haha
Both of us took our usual night time supplements but this time we added some carob powder and coconut oil to the gelatin mush. Weird -yes. Delicious- yes.
As you can see lately from our eats that we are doing more 3 large meals and loving it. Our stomachs are both doing well with eating larger meals. We are still doing well in terms of going poo every day! Oh yay! And Lori’s face is slowly starting to calm down, still has pimples all over, but the size of them are starting to get smaller.
So we are appreciating these small improvements. We know we still have a long journey ahead of us in terms of healing our skin issues. But each day we are doing our best to live our lives to the fullest with no regrets. And we are really liking trying new things in our diet, especially our sources of carbs. We will expand more on this later, as we are still experimenting. Overall both of our moods are really positive and feeling great about life. Even with hard times, we always remember good things will come.
Twins question: Do you like plantains? What is your favorite carb source? Do you like to get a variety of carbs?
As you can see we are really liking our white rice, potatoes and now plantains (along with a little fruit) for our main source. We are trying our best to get a well balanced foods in our diet that works for US.
A part of why we started our #purelyfit team. To learn to love yourself. To be purely fit inside and out! #Bepurelyyou
Again you may find different things work for you and that is ok! Keep listening to your body!
til next time,
