dessert for dinner? yes or no

by purelytwins

Hey luvs,

Sorry for the very late post, we enjoyed a very slow moving morning 🙂 Enjoyed sleeping in. Doing a little shopping at the farmers market. Then ran into a friend while we were getting some coffee at Whole Foods.

We had a great week full of great workouts and amazing eats! We sure hope you had a wonderful week too.

purpose of life is to enjoy it

Remember life is about enjoyment.


12 min plank wkout

ah forgot how much we love 12 minute plank workout


HIIT cardio workout

15 minutes away from a good workout.


make it count

Make every workout count! Believe in yourself.

dont need a perfect body

Remember you don’t have to have a perfect body to feel great in it!

What is your goal?

For us – it is not to be the fittest or leanest person, but just feel good and happy in our bodies. Working out helps us feel confident.  This is why we workout. It is so important to feel strong on the inside. Love yourself – right now – every good (and bad) part.  #bepurelyyou

banana egg ghee sausage breakfast

Loving our local eggs and sausage! Enjoyed this meal a few times this week. Never gets old 😉


Nothing too exciting going on with our eats, just enjoying the usual mix of foods like – green juice, eggs, baked plantains, and lots of plantain bread.

Although we have had a few meal highlights featuring our favorite ingredient – avocado.

mint chip avocado ice cream

We love mint chocolate chip avocado soft serve.

And one night we decided to have DESSERT for dinner

more mint chocolate chip avocado soft serve (which we added in gelatin and coconut oil) and enjoyed it with protein banana bread with ghee.

Match made in heaven!

We had dessert for dinner last night! For lunch, we’d had a big meal, so we weren’t really that hungry for dinner and did a ton of yardwork instead. Around dinnertime, we decided froyo would do the trick!

I love dinner for dessert! My fave is to mix eggs with protein powder and cacao poweder, cook as a scramble and top with almond butter and choc chips. Yumm!

Lucia yum!

Lucie@FitSwissChick August 3, 2013 - 5:05 pm

Well. I meant dessert for dinner 🙂

I’ve definitely had dessert for dinner before! When I was studying abroad in Germany, I loved going to the ice cream cafes and getting a huge sundae. They have really decadent, beautifully arranged sundaes, and one is definitely enough for a meal! I think half my diet was ice cream and the other half was chocolate 😉

Jojo – Nice 😉

My big goal is to make every day a good and happy day. I want to feel strong and lean and fit just as much as the next girl, but, when it comes down to it, I just want to feel happy — joyful, even! When I have a really great workout, it’s effects make a big difference to me and to my day. It lifts me up and it keeps me up. I like that.
