Lori: Yesterday Michelle and I decided to do our 8 minute #plankworkout routine.
Remember small changes can create BIG results! Even the little things in life can add up to something great! So don’t give up!
Started my day with raspberries and eggs. This time I added in a handful of greens. Topped with coconut oil. Really like this flavor combo!
Lunch was some white rice with zucchini, fennel, scallops, sauerkraut, dulse flakes, hemp seeds and coconut oil. Delicious. It has been a long time since I have had scallops. I got these frozen from Trader Joes. I was really impressed with the quality of them!
Late afternoon I got a little hungry so I decided to make a simple carob egg pancake with coconut oil. I flipped the pancake too soon and it broke on me. Oh well, it was still yummy.
Dinner was handful of mixed greens, red pepper, parsnips, half avocado, grass-fed burger (from US wellness meats), black lava sea salt and coconut oil.
Dessert was a baked chia seed thin mint cake topped with coconut oil.
I enjoyed a casual Friday with my two men and watched a movie. My skin is doing well. No major improvements yet, but overall I feel it is starting to get better. The inflammation of my pimples seems to be slowly dying down. I have been putting my manuka honey on my pimples at night which seems to be helping. I forgot how much I love that honey.
Since I am working at an expo all day it is really hard to take breaks to eat. By doing so many expos in the past I have realized that I need to try to eat a bigger breakfast to help hold me for hours. So yesterday that is what I did.
I had a HUGE breakfast. A little bit of everything that I was craving and it kept me full for hours! It was some eggs, half avocado, raspberries, figs, coconut oil and some spinach. And I felt fine eating such a big meal too. This breakfast was probably about 600-700 calories and worth every bite! Now that’s breakfast 🙂 I was so happy to see figs too! My fav!
Our raw threads team had a good day yesterday at the expo.
Late afternoon I snacked on a banana.
Also snacked on some baby carrots and more raw cookies.
The expo ended around 7pm. Once our team cleaned and restocked the booth we decided to have dinner out. We went to a sushi place. I got some mackerel sashimi and ordered one roll. Love my sushi!
Got home pretty late and I was tired. But I had an urge for some chocolate. Luckily I packed some dark chocolate bars for those random chocolate cravings. Love my dark chocolate.
Overall I had a great day, no stomach issues. Which I was surprised by since my breakfast was a very complicated meal. But my body did really well… a great improvement for me. I am very happy about that! I know I will still have tummy troubles from time to time, but I am getting to understand my body a little bit better. Again small changes = results.
Twin question: Dark chocolate fan? What is your favorite chocolate bar company? Anyone else seeing figs yet in their local area? We can’t wait for fig season as they are our favorite.
And so many of you brought up such great points about why health and food are such hot topics. We agree with you all!
til next time,
