weeklysparks Highlights from our week:

thin mint french toast glutenfree

Sad that we ate our last bit of our thin mint french toast… can’t wait to recreate again. One of our favs to date.

fresh juice

Enjoying our morning fresh green juice in our new cups from Sur la Table! Love them.

almond butter bread

Enjoyed our last few slices of our almond butter protein bread.

popsugar selectReceiving a special box in the mail from popsugar as we are apart of their popsugar select fitness and food. Thanks popsugar for the cute bag and hoodie!

jane irdele

Another surprise box in the mail came from Jane herself… Jane Iredale makeup. She read about our face and hormone struggles and wanted to send us a special package. We got a variety of makeups to try and a new product that they are launching called Skin Accumax for us to try out. We’ve already shared before that we use and love their makeup, so we have a good feeling we will like these products.  Due to Lori being pregnant we are waiting to try out the new supplement.


Vanilla stevia no sugar marshmallows. Forgot how addicting these are. Great way to get more gelatin into our diet.

eating plantain bread post workoutOur go-to bread  is always a great addition to our post workout meals.  We are back to making this just about daily.

bacon avocado plantain sandwich

Made our delicious bacon avocado sandwich. For the plantain bread we were short on the plantains so threw in some steamed sweet potatoes to get to the weight we needed. It worked, a little soft and more moist bread, but still yummy.

avocado pudding

Friday night we enjoyed a meatless dinner with making up our favorite pudding – avocado plantain protein pudding. So good. We added in some coconut oil to it. 1 tablespoon each… made it so rich and creamy.

workout purely fit life

Working hard in our weekly workouts.

purelytwins workout challenge

Besides enjoying delicious food and goodies in the mail we have been working out daily too. Kettlebell swing challenge!

weight cardio workout

Filmed some new workouts for purely training and purely fit life club.  And yes for those that are wondering Lori is still doing our home workouts with me. She of course makes adjustments when needed.  Coming this week she will be addressing more about her workouts, her eats, supplements, etc. Stay tuned!

Why have I still not made plantain bread?! I am ashamed I haven’t as I always love seeing your plantain creations. Maybe it can be a goal for myself this week 🙂

I LOVE your recipe for vanilla marshmallows. They are the bomb! So light and fluffy. They taste so decadent, but their totally healthy.

Congrats on the little one. It is so neat to watch both of you grow.

Now…I must try that pudding recipe..
