Hey hey friends!
Who is ready for another busy week? We sure are!
Especially since this is our first week of our Purely Fit Life Program! Everyone who joined we will be checking in with you here soon.
How was everyone’s weekend? Did you get things done? Did you spend time with family and friends? Did you do anything new? Did you prep your food for the week? We did all of that!
Lori: Got the whole family (gary and jax came with) up early for my Saturday interval sprint/walk. Wore my mermaid raw threads running skirt, which I love. And did 30 second intervals of switching off from walking and sprinting for 10 rounds.
Michelle: I did the same interval as Lori.
Make every step count! ~ xoxo the twins
Not a bad way to start our Saturday morning at purelytwins headquarters
Love recipe development. We really think you guys are going to love our next little e-cookbook. We have taken most of the pictures and done most of the recipes, just a few left. Can’t wait to share it with you all!
Oh we did enjoy this fun breakfast after we drank a lovely green juice ;)
After doing some work it was time to eat again. And since we had such a yummy breakfast we knew our lunch had to be similar. Thank goodness for more plantain bread, figs and bacon!
Dinner for us was a classic – a meal we could eat all the time. Which we probably do hehe.
Sautéed zucchini with spinach and salmon with coconut oil and black lava sea salt. YUM!
Also played some ping pong with friends.
For dessert we enjoyed another recipe from our new e-cookbook that we have been working hard on these past few days. Just have the recipe creating bug we guess. We just have so many ideas we just went crazy in the kitchen.
Sunday we both woke up ready for some protein pancakes.
Of course fresh figs were involved.
We whipped up some perfect fit protein with 2 egg yolks. Just the yolks. We are going to experiment with having just the yolks not the whites of chicken eggs to see if it helps with Michelle’s eczema and Lori’s hormonal acne.
After breakfast it was coffee time.
Also wanted to experiment with taking our plantain bread recipe and using sweet potatoes instead. Just in case someone rather have sweet potatoes over plantains. Gary happily enjoyed this and approved it!
What we did for the sweet potato flatbread recipe:
- about 7 oz of sweet potatoes, skinned
- 2 whole eggs
Blend in blender. Cook in some coconut oil in a pan in the oven at 350 degrees for about 20-22 minutes.
Just as easy as the plantain bread. So happy to see that it works with sweet potatoes.
Lunch was some leftovers – some arugula, mahi mahi, salmon, coconut oil and black lava sea salt.
This really cleaned out the fridge. Off to the store we went to restock the refrigerator. And to prep food for the week!
Late afternoon snack – this baby – another recipe that will be in our next e-cookbook (promise it will be worth the wait)
Dinner was spinach, full avocado, some coconut oil, and local grass-fed ground beef. Topped with sea salt. Delicious. We just love the flavor of local grass-fed beef, simply the best.
And ended our night with just our typical gelatin mush with vitamin D, l-glutamine and vitex. And some magnesium. Those are still our typical night time supplements. Oh we forgot to mention a few days ago but Lori got her period again! So definitely think the major breakout last week that Lori had was due to hormones and getting period. Which is good as it looks like she is getting her period almost every month… well these past 2 months anyways. But still struggling with hormonal breakouts so not healed yet. I, Michelle, am still trying to get my period back. I feel I am getting close as I got a few hormonal acne too last week. But no period. Guess my body needs a little bit more time.
We will be back later.
You all rock!!! Love seeing all the plantain bread love…plank love and so much more! You all make us SMILE
Keep being amazing.
Be back later with a new FUN workout.
Enjoy your Monday!
Twins question: Have you played ping pong before? Are you good at it? What would you like better sweet potato bread or plantain bread? What has made you smile recently?
till next time,
