Food & Fitness / 5.4 - 5.11

Happy Tuesday, babes! Hoping your week is off to an awesome start! New F&F post, sharing what workouts have looked like over the last week + loads of clean eating inspiration!  The weather is getting hotter and my food, as it does every spring & summer, is getting lighter & lighter.... loads of salads, green smoothies, big bowls of fruit, superfoods & goat yogurt & doing a lot of chia puddings again. I love eating a diet rich in fruits, veggies & leafy greens, but making sure I'm getting in enough protein is essential for me & my energy levels. 
Make sure your nourishing your body with everything it needs to compensate for workouts, busy schedules & just life in general! xx

Much Love, Health & Happiness,

Clean Eats

Thursday night at Rhino Market after leaving the Y about 730pm...bloggin, hanging out with the locals & munching on this yumminess...
Chicken Salad on Bibb Lettuce + these chips & my current fave - Cucumber DRY Soda

Saturday night at Treehouse...
This salmon salad is my go-to on their menu.

You guys, this was the most random, post workout bowl of deliciousness...
We had these gluten-free buckwheat noodles leftover from a fun Ramen recipe we played around with the week before  so I just tossed them in a bowl with celery + mini heirloom tomatoes + orange bell pepper. 
1 teaspoon grapeseed oil + 1 teaspoon roasted peanut oil + cayenne pepper squeeze of lemon & pinch of himalayan salt + sesame seeds.
So Yummms!!

Don't miss out on these delicious His & Hers Superfood Breakfast Parfaits

We played around with this super yum miso-ramen recipe that lead to me (and my boyfriend) waking up the next morning looking like a couple of puffer fish! Not cute! I'm perplexed by the amazing health benefits of Miso, yet its loaded with a crazy amount of sodium. My body is not used to that amount of sodium and let me tell you...it showed AND I could feel it in my clothes! gross. 
  I swaped out the ramen noodles for gluten free buckwheat noodles and got low sodium everything. 

Which leads me to this much needed green smoothie...

this giant & so-good salad at like 1030pm after our Monday night yoga class that doesn't end til 930

Chicken, Salad & Steamed Cabbage with Olive Oil, SS&P

Crab cake from Clean Catch + ya know...more salad :)
We pretty much only get our crab cakes from Clean Catch on Selwyn Ave -- they are amaze balls. Nothing but fresh lump crab meat -- a little pricey, but worth it!

crazy good (and hot) Indian Takeout from Situl. Some lamb dish, veggie dish with chickpeas & cauliflower + garlic naan on the side!
