How is everyone doing today? Is the weather good in your neck of the woods? We hope so. We have been experiencing scattered rain showers but still having nice hot days too.
Since we tend to eat almost the same things everyday, we like to try to jazz things up from time to time. Even though we love our typical eats, and we love food, it is still fun for us to create fun meals. Anyone else?
We made some green crepes and topped them off with fresh banana slices and of course figs! More on that below.
Yesterday we did our PurelyFitLife workout – when you’ve no time to workout workout!
Perfect as we had a VERY busy day yesterday but wanted to move the body.
Both of us are working hard each day with our workouts and keeping on track with our clean eats to get the results we want. One way we respect our bodies is by exercising and eating whole foods (and figuring out what foods our bodies like best). Remember to RESPECT your body as it’s the only one you get!
Find the balance in life that makes you happy inside and out. Respect yourself to do the things you love to do and nourish your body with good, clean food.
Michelle came over to my place for us to work on our new purely fit life program so when we get together we tend to always want to play in the kitchen. We did not mean to make these green crepes it was kinda of a last minute idea. Brillant idea if I may so say!
We also were having a high carb kind of day so we topped our green crepes with fresh banana slices and figs! And a runny egg yolk to top it all off!
Here is what we did for our green crepes:
- couple handfuls of spinach
- 4 eggs
- 1 really ripe banana
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
Blend everything in the blender.
Have a warm-hot skillet with a little oil ready to start making the crepes. These were more thin like crepes, instead of our usual pancakes we enjoy.
They were good. It was again fun for us to eat our typical eggs, green and some fruit a little differently.
Continuing on with our love to play in the kitchen we decided to try something new with our plantain bread. We added in some goat kefir. And it came out great. Love adding in that little bit of healthy fats and probiotic.
Not the best picture, sorry about that. Guess we were in a hurry to eat it and did not waste too much time taking pics. We topped our kefir plantain bread with a goat kefir chia spread that we mixed in spirulina in. And topped with more figs.
Delicious. Enjoyed every bite. Again it was fun to have something a little different for our lunch. It is nice to mix things up.
We’ve been so productive and busy with creating a new workout program. It will start in July. We will be sharing all the details here very soon! We hope you all like it as we are really excited about it.
Dinner we kept basic with mahi mahi, raw mushrooms and spinach, steamed parsnips, ghee and black lava sea salt. We are trying to eat more raw veggies to see how our bodies handle them. Even though we really enjoy cooking most of food sometimes you just want a raw veggie, and don’t feel like cooking. Probably the heat talking to us.
Late evening it was time for some protein thin mints cookies that I made the other day. We made it with carob and perfect fit brown rice protein. A lovely night-time snack.
Quick Update: It has been a few days since Michelle has had avocados and I took a little break from them as well. But Michelle’s skin is still going through moments of bad eczema and then the itching goes away, then it happens all over again. We are thinking that avocados might not be the culprit. Well she is really praying they aren’t 😉 I am going through a little breakout, which I know is from PCOS and hormones not back to normal. It is a work in progress. Lot’s of little pimples, that came quick, favoring my jaw line and lower check. I do have two larger ones coming under skin up by top of nose/eye area. The reason I am mentioning this is because I was just pimple free for a few days, and then these literally came over night. Very weird. Really that is all I can say.
We are both at a point where we are physically feeling great (digestion good, energy good, sleep good) but our skin still giving us problems from time to time. There are moments when we just think this is how we are…always have skin issues, maybe they cannot be cured 100%…but we are trying to stay positive. Take one day at time. And trying to just learn and not stress. We are still going to play around with things until we figure things out. We will not give up.
Our motivation for the day!
Twins Question: Do you like crepes? Ever make them? What fresh fruit are you enjoying lately?
Have a great Wednesday!
