Good Morning luvs,
We have a busy day editing videos and pictures, plus other work. We hope to film some purely talk videos. This Thursday will be a fun (a little different) one so make sure you come back for that. As well as new recipes coming…think warm,cheesy, and crunchy for tomorrows recipe.
We have been sweating, planking, jumping, and stretching these bad few days with our #purelypower Purely Fit Life workouts. Last week was a tough week and this week started off nicely with some YOGA.
Remember you can join Purely Fit Life Workout program at any time.
mmm cannot seem to get enough protein english muffins!
a simple balanced breakfast to start our day.
Nothing makes us more happy then a good cup of coffee.
okay, maybe a good meal or workout makes us just as happy too.
ahh, the simple joys in life 🙂
After work we enjoyed some local eggs, duck egg, and sausage (a new purchase we got at the farmers market) all cooked in coconut oil, and we served it with crispy plantain fries and more coconut oil.
BEST meal ever.
It has been a few weeks since we have had eggs, so this meal tasted like gold to us. We are excited to be enjoying eggs again, well for the time being. So far our skin seems good. And one other thing to note we both felt great after eating this meal too. No stomach issues. We thought it would be fun to share the macros for it — these are just estimates as we were not 100% sure on the sausage, but close enough. Fat – 40 g Carbs – 33 g Protein – 24 g. We were pretty happy with these numbers.
We don’t track everything we eat. One, we don’t have the time. Second, not everything is easy to figure out –> how much fat, carbs, etc. For instance when we make our recipes we eat them. We don’t worry too much about the macros.
We are generally aware of what is in our meals, especially since we focus on eating as much real food as possible. The meals we feel great afterwards, we sometimes take the time to see what the macros were for that meal. This allows us to continue to find what our bodies like and don’t like.
Later on we enjoyed a new recipe that is on the long list of recipes to share.
We struggled with not eating this whole recipe. haha we love desserts!
Cultured veggies anyone?
We finally got around, well Lori did the work, to making fermented veggies again! We did it slightly differently than how we used to, so hopefully it works.
We have mentioned a few times here about us playing around with macros and meal times. Well dinner is one meal we have been trying to make a big meal. Not everyday it ends up being our biggest meal, but we love when we get to fill up at night as we have noticed we sleep better when are dinners are balanced and filling. Plus it keeps us full so we don’t always crave a late night snack.
Well that is from us today! Hope you all have a great day!
Twins Question: Do you have a big or small dinner? Do you notice a difference in your sleep based upon what you eat at night?
Do you make fermented veggies?
till next time,
Lori and Michelle
