A little bit of this, a little bit of that…

Hiya dolls! Hope you are having a lovely weekend so far. It it super wet here in CLT  — so. much. rain. and for some reason, I’m totally lovin’ it. Most of the time rainy days kinda mess with my mojo but I just find it so peaceful & relaxing today.Catching you all up to speed since my last post on Wednesday. The stomach bug had me down & out all day …the only good thing that came from that was the ridiculous amount of sleep I got — uhmm, about 15 hours. ahhhmazing. I woke up Thursday morning feeling fabulous and had more energy than I knew what to do with from my abundance of sleep!! :))

Clean Eating

 A look at some clean eats from the last few days…

Veggie Scramble + Red Rice

Veggie Scramble + Red RiceScramble:
2 EB Eggs, Spinach, onion, mushroom & goat cheese. Loving this red rice. New addition to my life 🙂

Gala Apple + Golden Raisins Oatmeal

Gala Apple + Golden Raisins + Coconut Oil + Pumpkin Pie Spice Oatmeal

Brown Rice + Gala Apple

Brown Rice + Toasted Pine Nuts & Gala Apple
This was my pre boxing power snack. Cayenne pepper sprinkled in my rice gave me incredible energy during my workout.

Gala Apple Power Snack

Fuji Apple, Raw Pecans, Goji Berries & Prunes
Totally random snack plate to hold me over until heading out to dinner…

Dean & Deluca Lunch

Today’s après yoga lunch…
Kale Salad | Scallop + Arugala Salad | Peppermint Tea (w/ lemon) Tried out this new Scallop Salad which was good, but a little too heavy handed on the olive oil/dressing. I prefer to actually taste the food, not the dressing.

Thursday night was dinner with one of my best gals at Basil to satisfy our Thai taste buds — mmmm!! One of my favorite cuisines. Winded up ordering a second round of both the Chicken Satay and Basil Rolls apps which left us both pretty full and I ordered a (giant) bowl of Tom Yum soup with loads of veggies & shrimp. So good.
