Week 3 check in

Wow…Today marks second week in a row I’ve met goal of attending spin class 3x per week. I am so thrilled, you have no idea. Something is clicking in my head and this feels like it’s sticking!

Today I am REALLY hungry. My meals today:

1 piece Ezikiel toast w/tiny bit raw almond butter and scant amount of agave
amaranthe w/blueberries
1 green drink with green powder & raw kale, blueberries & that vegan protein powder you had me buy (millet, quinoa and amaranthe in it I think) in a base of unsweetened rice milk (it was less expensive than the other options)
1 organic fuji apple and about 1/8 cp raw almonds
1 piece Eziekiel bread w/vegan may & 1/2 avodado
2 thin slices of applegate farms herbed turkey breast (from trader joe’s)

Any ideas on a good dinner? I have some hoppin john made..maybe serve it with quinoa and some freshly juiced carrots?
A salad? (bleh)?


Day Two – BlogHer Cleanse

Yes, we’re 6 days away from BlogHer! Anyone else exercising and filling up on fruit & veggies instead of junk so they can fit into their LBD? Since it is very important to me to show up at BlogHer “muffintopLESS”, I enlisted the help of a “Certified Holistic Health Counselor” here in Dayton — her name is Robin Gentry McGee, owner of Just Great Foods — and I just LOVE her. Here we are at a recent gathering at The Gypsy Warehouse.

We were actually friends many years ago but lost touch somehow. You’ll start seeing and hearing more about her if you hang out with me, because I am going to get her hooked up on all things social media!

For this first week working with Robin, I am on a CLEANSE / anti-inflamatory. Here are the details…oh and I am buying everything organic as much as possible! I have to stay away from night-shades and high-sugar fruits.

almond milk
Garden of Life Perfect Food, Super Green Formula
Peaceful Planet, Supreme Meal (quinoa, millet, amaranth)
blueberries or strawberries

dark leafy greens
garbanzo beans
any other veggies that don’t fall into the night-shade category (such as eggplant, tomato, peppers)
(add organic roast turkey if needed)

HOME-MADE DRESSING (make in food processor)
raw organic apple cider
fresh herbs (I use basil and rosemary from my garden)
pine nuts or garbanzo beans if you want a thickener
almond milk (if you need to thin it)

carrots & hummus or
Kombucha (from health food store)
strawberries or blueberries

baked/broiled/grilled/steamed: wild caught fish or organic turkey
grains: quinoa, rice or amaranth
fresh veggies (salad or steamed)
