jax wanting to taste

Apparently Jax wanted some protein thin mints too 😉  He knows where the good stuff is.

cinnamon roll recipe testing

Practiced some cookie dough cinnamon rolls!!!! OMG

eating cinnamon bun

Happily sampled a cinnamon roll for post-workout one day.


Practiced some moves on our equalizer after our workout earlier this week. Those pistol squats are one exercise move that we are starting to practice again as we are not good at doing them.

chocolate pistachio donuts

Also ate some delicious chocolate pistachio donuts. We tried our best to spread these guys out but they were just too good that we ate them up rather quickly.  Oops.

tahini rice dinner bowl

The other night we both enjoyed a very simple dinner. White rice with sautéed kale, brussel sprouts, grass-fed burger (from US Wellness Meat they sell quality grassland meat products) and lots of tahini.  Sometimes simple is best.


Loving this organic tahini from Whole Foods. It’s not raw, but still delicious.

Cara's Healthy Cravings January 6, 2014 - 7:36 am

I need to incorporate more equalizer moves into my workouts! They are great for adding a new challenge and to spice things up a bit. Sometimes a feel a bit silly using them at the gym, but I try to block that out of my mind and say “who cares!”
