Sharing what I ate in a day plus an easy plank routine for beginners. And our favorite “skinny” protein hot cocoa.
Warning my eats yesterday were pretty boring, haha. Sometimes it is just the way it is.
Meal 1 – post-workout smoothie (1 banana, water, brown rice protein, handful fresh parsley, mint, and romaine)
M2: peach and coffee
M3: unpictured – a big plate of oven roasted broccoli (cooked in coconut oil and cinnamon) and salmon drizzled with 1 tbsp coconut oil
M4: another peach
M6: simple squash avocado salad with cucumber, carrots, dulse flakes, apple cider vinegar, sunflower sprouts, and 2 spoonfuls of hemp seeds
Although my dinner was pretty special! It was Lori and I’s dad’s birthday yesterday, so I took my parents out to celebrate.
We all left the restaurant stuffed! It is always so fun to see my parents eating sushi!
I was home doing some work and saw this post from Katie, and knew it must be a sign for me to have some chocolate. Oh how I love pure chocolate bars!
Now onto a new video I filmed a few days ago. Lori and I have received request for more plank workouts for beginners. We have shared one before – plank and bridge post interval workout. So here is another plank workout video for you guys! Share with anyone you may know that is new to planking. (remember when starting a new workout program consult with you doctor and know you own limits)
easy tabata inspired plank interval workout
A great way to get used to holding plank. Give yourself time to get used your core being engaged! And over time challenge yourself to hold it longer. Believe in yourself that you can do it!
And enjoy some chocolate protein cookies after you plank! They are the perfect balance of carbs and protein.
More shout outs!

Now I need your help. This weekend we are having another birthday celebration for my dad (with the rest of the family, well minus Lori, wish you could be here) But our dad is not really a sweets person like the rest of the family, so making him desserts are always tricky. He loves our coconut lime cream cakes.
So Lori and I have been brainstorming what I should make him, any thoughts? Do you have any non-sweet lovers in your family? If so, what do you tend to make them?
