Where did Monday go? Did it go by fast for anyone else? For some reason for us before we knew it – it was dinner time. We were productive and barely left the house. Well we did take Jax on two walks yesterday in between the rain storms. And to speaking of rain storms – whoa! We had a crazy day yesterday with the weather. The rain and wind got so bad that the neighbors tree fell over, thankfully into the street and not on anyone’s house! Crazy!
Gary and I still have a lot of trees near our home and it always makes me nervous that a tree might fall just like our neighbors.
Yesterday we kept our workout easy with doing some plank followed by our #PFChallenge back routine and some light walking outside with Jax. Great little movements to move the body and get back into our workout routine after taking 4 days off from vacation!
On our way back home on Sunday we quickly stopped by Whole Foods to grab a few items but never made it to Trader Joes for some more food. Like we said above we were busy and barely left the house. Luckily we plan on going to the farmers market and store today to stock up our fridges.
Breakfast was some pasture-raised eggs with spinach and banana all cooked in ghee. Topped with sauerkraut and coconut oil.
Lunch was something we are starting to work on due to several request — egg-free and grain-free pancakes. We made our first attempt after a few discussions on what to try.
And they turned out!! Love that when it happens.
Though we do want to play around with it a few more times to try it differently. So that way again we have a few options for people to pick from. We will be sharing that final recipe with you all very soon!!
We topped our grain-free egg-free pancakes with goat yogurt mixed with perfect fit protein. Delicious. Perfect pancake topping we must say 🙂
Like we said we did not have much food in the house… we both got a little hungry late afternoon so we split the last banana in the house with some coconut oil.
Dinner again was thanks to Whole Foods we each had some sushi along with lettuce, white rice, and zucchini/yellow squash, and grilled salmon. We topped our dinner plates with some coconut oil. Hit the spot. We both were craving a little bit of everything last night. And this plate satisfied us.
As you can see we have not really been having much avocados lately. During our vacation we did not really have them, and since being back home we have been deciding on when to add them back.
As Michelle was experimenting with taking avocado out to see if her eczema would get better. Would her legs stop itching. And so far they have stopped itching and her red patches on her legs are less severe.
We decided that she will leave them out of her diet a little bit longer then experiment with them coming back to see what happens with her skin. But we have really missed them as before we were eating one full avocado a day. Although there are a few other foods Michelle has removed from her diet to see if it helps. So still trying to pinpoint what causes her flare-ups.
We also know that we were in the sun a lot while at Disney so being in the sun and getting that natural vitamin D could have helped. As from some of our research with eczema – sunlight can help. We are still figuring out a few skin and health issues but again overall we are very happy and pleased with how our bodies are doing.
Today’s mini challenge is 50 mountain climbers. Who is ready?
Remember to let us know if you do your June #PFChallenge! Keep up the great work everyone.
Twins question: Do you like making recipes? What is your favorite thing to make? What has been making you smile lately? Does anyone else that has ezcema notice that the sun helps?
have a great day!
Lori and Michelle
