yoga and headstands

After 30 minutes of yoga flow it was time to practice my #PFChallenge – headstands! Anyone else do theirs?

I am still practicing my headstands and other forearm balances too. Having fun with doing new things and continuing my yoga practice.  Certain positions I feel strong and others I fall over all the time. But with more practice and determination I know I will get there.

zuzka light yoga ZCUT

Lori and I ordered Zuzka’s dvds, so I was excited to try out her yoga yesterday! I did her warm-up, crescent series, one round of chair series, and ended with cool down. I practiced my headstands too! It has been a few days since I have so I was a little rusty.

We will have to give a full review later of Zuzka ZCut dvds as we try more of them out. It is different, which we like!

juice eggs salmon breakfast

Started morning with peachy plantain bread topped with coconut and runny egg yolk, along side some salmon and green juice (romaine, mint, kale, ginger, cucumber). Now that’s a lovely breakfast.

Love BREAKFAST time ;)

praciting vegan pancakes

Headed over to Michelle’s place to practice more grain-free egg-free pancakes and film some videos. We made a few different but the same recipes, and we feel all of them came out in their own way. haha. Each one was very moist but again not really light and fluffy, which we are not sure if we will be able to get so might just have to leave it as.

New #purelyfitlife workout coming for Move-it-Monday (we filmed a fun and hard new purely fit life workout)

post workout meal

Post-workout meal was white rice (cooked in bone broth), beef liver meatballs that we broke into pieces a little, coconut oil, and one slice of peachy plantain bread. A little sweet savory action going on. Love.

more banana snack

We were still hungry so we split a banana.

Did more work while sipped on banana perfect fit smoothie late afternoon.

salmon sprouts dinner

Dinner was salmon, raw shredded carrots with ACV, raw sunflower sprouts, baked parsnips fruits, homemade raw sauerkraut, sautéed greens, coconut oil and black lava sea salt.  My tummy loved all my meals yesterday and was hungry for each meal. So feeling like I my metabolism is getting there. Feel like I am listening to my body more and enjoying the ride.

Great way to end the day!! I saved my parsnips fries for the end…Lori and I just love parsnips fries :)

carob gelatin mush

I enjoyed a nice little dessert before bed – Added some carob to gelatin mush with a little coconut oil. So good! (Lori enjoyed one too)

at the park

After dinner we (gary and lori) took Jax to the park up the street to run around some.  It was nice to get outside for awhile. Loving these warm days.

plantain peach grain-free bread

Now onto the peach plantain bread recipe!

The basic plantain grain-free bread is so good itself, but we have been enjoying adding in other things for different flavors.  We loved our raspberry basil recipe.and our 3 ingredient breakfast cake.  All of our recipes are pretty similar we just switch up the amount of eggs and fruit. It makes for great travel food.

peach and plantain

We picked up some peaches the other day and decided to try them in the bread to bring in some sweetness.

    So why do you guys like the Perfect Fit protein so much? In comparison to say the Sun Warrior brand? I’ve tried both the Sun Warrior classic brown rice formula and their newer non rice formula and they’re both good though I think I’m burned out on it right now. Protein smoothies have been my breakfast every morning for years and I’ve finally reached a point where I’m not excited for them anymore.
    Do you find that you digest the Perfect Fit pretty well?
    Thanks.

      we just like the flavor and texture of Perfect Fit, both brands are great quality. And yes we feel we digest Perfect Fit well.

  2. yum, the peach would be fantastic in the bread! Loving the sweet/savoury breakfast. As usual all your eats look delicious, can’t wait for the pancake recipe!! Will you have it up before the weekend? I need to test out parsnips, the fries are calling me :)

    • purelytwins says:

      yes we hope to have the recipes up tomorrow for the few different pancakes we have been working on.

  3. This is an interesting recipe! I like the combination of peaches and cardamom, this reminds me of your other socca recipes, will try!

    Is the difference between a banana and a plantain the sugar content?
