Late to the Party

I can't seem to slow down enough to post on Sundays and Wednesdays, but I will be back on track soon. A handful of photos since my last update:
 Hazelnut Almond Milk Latte in my cute classroom.
 The "I didn't really meal prep" lunch from last week - Wild Rice and steamed cruciferous.
 Because there was a chocolate holiday.
Saturday mornings = pancakes post workout.

See you soon!

Celebratory Weekend

It's that time of year - when you become older, and people like to take you out to eat.  Behold: Oatmeal SuperFood Bowl from Blue Sky Cafe.
 Grandma in Kansas embroidered these dish towels for me! So cute!
 Did you hear about this? I tried it out and made my own birthday cupcakes.
 From the family:
 Shen, this one is for you: Mom agreed to go to True Food Kitchen with me for lunch today (I took the day off!) The TLT is everything I hoped it would be and more. Can't wait for the leftovers tomorrow.
 Also, this was our weather on Friday:
I'm out the door to enjoy dinner at Homegrown Tap & Dough - where I'll enjoy one of my favorites: the quinoa salad (almonds, cucumber, avocado, apples, golden raisins, arugula & lemon vinaigrette).  See you soon!

Enjoy This

Jam packed weekend of catching up with friends and then watching the SuperBowl with family.  I slept in, and sped off to cycle/HIIT class. I was meeting a friend shortly thereafter so only time for a shower, and no breakfast. I inhaled this salad from ModMarket whilst chatting away:

Sandwich of dreams from Snarf's for dinner:
Cocomels for dessert:

Sunday morning early breakfast (8am!) at WaterCourse:

My snack contribution for the SuperBowl:
I did eat a salad for lunch, so I promise the entire weekend wasn't overly indulgent. Just mostly. Ha!  I hope you had a great weekend!

Let's Play a Game

I wasn't the best at taking photos this weekend: only breakfast and a trip to the park with Remy.

Below are the ingredients (I forgot to add almond milk, broth, and garlic) for four meals in the week ahead. Render your guesses below, and all shall be revealed on Wednesday!

Good luck!

Picture of Health

As it is easy to be worn out and infected with germs this time of year, I am trying to arm my system with the right nutrients.
 Green juice above, bran muffins below.
 Blueberries with the leftover bits of Nut Butter Balls.
I upgraded my mushroom to a portobello. Equally as delicious as the baby bellas. Filled with cashew cream, spinach, shallots, and breadcrumbs. Roasted brussel sprouts. 
 A couple days of lunch prep, including another Happy Herbivore recipe, from the Light & Lean series: Leftover Pot Pie.  Basically three cups of any kinds of veggies - fresh and frozen cooked in broth.
 A gravy of nooch, almond milk, and herbs.
 And a biscuit topping (whole wheat flour, baking powder, almond milk) that I didn't quite spread out to the edges. Oh well. Next time! The kitchen smelled amazing.
See you on Wednesday!
