Sparks from our week:

lori eating cupcake

Enjoying Babycakes gluten-free vegan donuts when we were down in Disney last week. So good. Still dreaming about them.

new cookie cake recipe

Practiced and enjoyed a new yummy recipe. Can’t wait to share this one with you guys!!

walking outside

Enjoyed daily walks outside.

mung bean bread

Made an old favorite – mung bean flatbread – we were wanting something a little different than our normal plantain bread. Used sprouted mung beans, which we ground into flour. Mixed 1/2 cup mung bean flour with 1/2 cup water. Cooked in skillet. Enjoyed with an egg to make a mini sandwich.

sardines avocado asparagus dinner

Enjoyed a very random but delicious dinner earlier this week.

plantain dessert

Enjoyed baked plantains for dessert one night. Michelle is experimenting with adding in plantains back into her diet, and so far she has no issues. So she is excited that she can eat plantains again.

salmon dinner

Another delicious dinner one night.

lori knee to elbow exercise

Did a killer plank workout that our abs are still sore from. A new purely training workout coming Monday.

michelle arm pulses

Enjoyed an awesome arm workout for our purely fit club.

waffle yogurt sandwich

Enjoyed the perfect waffles with some sheep yogurt to make a fun sandwich.
