Favorites Friday: Not Just Food

I love it when people do favorite's posts.  It breaks up the monotony of food posts and I'm a product junkie.  We don't like to see food all the time... or do we?

Here's are a  few things I'm loving.

puravida bracelets

I'm obsessed. I want them all.

this salad dressing 

It's been going on everything!

this combination for sleep 

Seriously the best. Buy them here.

perfect bars 


They have been my favorite for awhile but they are finally at Costco!

What are some of your favorites right now?

Divine Light

Do you ever have that one day where everything is right? Everything goes smoothly and everyone is happy? Yeah, I know, I rarely have them too but today was a good day.

Mondays are normally pretty good because I spend an hour and a half doing yoga in the morning.  Starting my morning with a yoga class makes my mood so much better throughout the day... or what my yoga instructor said today, "May your day be filled with divine light".  My light today was divine.

Here's what I ate today.

breakfast 

I'm loving this combination for breakfast.  I made freezer packs with mango, pineapple, green chard, and banana.  In the morning I add coconut water.


Plus Ezekiel toast with almond butter, unsweetened coconut, and banana.

*Know that this is not what I eat before I do crossfit.  This would not be a substantial breakfast.  This was before yoga.  

lunch 

Lunch was EASY.  Easy because I had everything prepped in advance.  This weekend I cooked some grass fed beef with onions and peppers.  I grated some sweet potato and put it in the fridge.  I also washed and chopped all of my veggies.  Today I melted some coconut oil in a pan and added some of that grated sweet potato and chopped green chard.  Once they were cooked through I added the leftover beef.  It took about 10 minutes.

dinner

My kids found a recipe in a magazine for peanutty noodles so that's what we made tonight.  We used chicken breaast, carrots, bok toy, and rice noodles.  The recipe was similar to this one.  We all loved it.

What gives you divine light?

Laid Back Weekend

How was your weekend? We had a pretty good one.  I may be feeling better but my husband has whatever bug we are passing around.  Friday we had pizza and movie night. Saturday was crossfit in the morning and relaxing in the evening. Today was filled with nothing... which is amazing!

Here's what I ate today.

breakfast 

A fried egg, grits, strawberries, and bacon.  I really wanted a Belgian waffle.  I resisted the urge to go out for breakfast.  Instead I made something a little bigger than usual at home.

lunch

Grass fed beef cooked with peppers and onions.  Topped with avocado and salsa.  Plus Trader Joes plantain chips.

dinner

The kids wanted to make Daddy chicken noodle soup for dinner so that's what I did.  Chicken breast seasoned with dried thyme and basil baked in the oven.  I sautéed carrots, onion, and celery in ghee.  Then I added some chicken stock and whole wheat egg noodles.  Once the noodles were done I added the chicken to the mix.  It was perfect.

Now I'm going to wind down with some Walking Dead!


Did you do anything fun this weekend?

Intermittent

I spent the first half of the day like the past few days... not able to taste anything. This evening though something changed after crossfit. I was able to taste dinner!  I went to the doctor yesterday and she put me on an antibiotic and mucinex.  I tried every holistic approach I could think of and I lasted 5 days before going to the doctor.  When things weren't improving I knew it was time to go.

Anyways...

Here's what I ate today.

breakfast 

Oatbran + flaxseed made with water topped with almond butter, maple syrup, and almond milk.

lunch

Grated sweet potato and kale cooked in ghee + a fried egg.

dinner

Meatballs and spaghetti squash.


This meatball recipe never fails!  Plus I had an unpictured salad.  It tasted SO good!
