It’s a cozy day in our home. I got up extra early, read a couple chapters in bed, and had a craving for something sweet for breakfast. I also had fresh figs in the fridge, and I’ve been dreaming of what I was going to use them for. This elegant toast seemed like the way to go. Local honey and fresh baked bread from the Village Hearth Bakery. There’s absolutely nothing better than that. Continue reading →
Life has been a whirrrrlllllwind over here. I haven’t had much time for structure. I feel like this is the first October that will be a blur for me. It feels like something is going on every week… and really, that is how it is! One week into married life, and I feel like we still have so much to do… well… me. Between name changing and then getting ready for our honeymoon, it’s definitely been hectic over here!!
Instead of a diary of my day, I have just been taking photos of my food and would like to compile it all here. This is basically what I have been eating for the past few weeks. Lots of different meals, foods… you know. Variety is key to not getting bored, amiright? ;)
THERE IS A TON AFTER THE BREAK – just a warning. I love taking pictures of my food, so… you know. I think I may like this way of doing things better, too. I may just do a once a month compilation of everything I’ve eaten. I hope it gives you some insight into my eating habits, as well as ideas for your own diet!
Hi friends! Another plant-based day entry. Lots of vegetables for this lady, as you’ll see. With summer closing out, my fruit choices will shift – more apples, pears, pomegranates, and grapes for me. Occasionally, I will try to grab mangoes if they look good because I neeeeeed them, but mostly I just get disappointed. Fall, I love love love you above all the rest, but your choice in fruit lacks compared to summer. It’s fine, though. Autumn everything else makes up for it.
Hi friends! I feel like I haven’t wrote one of these posts in a little bit, so here’s a quick update on what I’ve been munching on lately. I really hope these posts serve as inspiration for anyone who is looking to eat more plant-based meals (or making the transition entirely). Definitely let me know if you’re still digging it. I don’t want to bore anyone to death ;)
Hi friends! I promised a food update from Vegas :)
I’ve been so excited to compile this post… like basically the moment I got there. The very first restaurant we went to, I was floored by how many options I had – and this pattern continued throughout the entirety of the trip. I snapped pictures of (almost) everything I ate… my friends love me and totally get it ;)
I honestly can’t believe how easy it was eating here… but actually, it does make sense. Vegas is a top vacation destination in the US, so they sort of HAVE to be accommodating for the wide variety of visitors. It just made me so happy to know I didn’t have to go crazy with swapping out ingredients and all that jazz. I’m typically a little shy when it comes to that and just settle on french fries (haha!)
It’s about that time for my sugar-free update! I mentioned in the past that I wanted to give this sugar-free lifestyle a go to see what happens… at least until the wedding (and no, probably not going to do this on my bachelorette weekend in Vegas).
So far, I’ve been feeling good. I noticed that I have been sleeping very well and getting up without feeling bloated/groggy. I do eat fruit, which is no issue for me. I actually prefer fresh fruit to sweets any day of the week. The hardest part has been not putting sugar in my coffee. So to be honest, I haven’t really been drinking much coffee, either! That’s probably a good thing. As much as I love it, I definitely think cutting back a bit is a good thing. With the fall quickly approaching, I know I’ll be back to my tea drinking, anyways. I LOVE tea during the cool months! Joe and I always have a couple mugs of tea while we curl up on the couch in the fall and winter. It’s a good habit to be in.
How are you guys? I’ve been crazy busy at work, and even busier trying to nail down all wedding things. I had my last dress fitting this past weekend… ahh! The dress being done pretty much makes this real as hell. I mean, not that it was never real, but… it totally gets you.
Still avoiding the stove at all costs – very minor use… mostly for quinoa and portobello mushrooms. I made this awesome quinoa salad (you’ll see below) and it’s great to make in large batches for the whole week. Plus, cold and refreshing (and protein!) Anyyyywhooo… here’s what my food diary has been looking like! Continue reading →
Hi friends – I am soo excited to write this post. I’ve been wanting to do something like this for a while, but would always forget to document everything from my day. I think I am finally ready to commit and make this a thing. To be honest, with less than 3 months until the wedding, I thought this would help keep me on track with eating healthy and logging it all. So here’s to hoping it will also help hold me accountable ;)
I may do this once a week or so. I’m always asked, “so what do you eat?” Welp, now you’ll know ;) I hope you guys like this type of stuff… definitely let me know if you are looking forward to this new addition in the comments below. Continue reading →
