Juicin’ Up and Lara Bar Winners

Hiiii guys! This is gonna be a quickie post because this girl needs a nap. I slept horribly last night but luckily, I have a few hours until my next client…

Yesterday turned out to be pretty busy for a Sunday! I was at the gym training and getting a workout in myself from about 8:30 until 12:30.

I came home and promptly juiced up.


Apple, 2 carrots, 1 small beet



Mmmm- such a great combination!

I drank the juice alongside a deliciously fresh salad.

A salad dressed in balsamic + EVOO, topped with shrooms, kamlata olives, feta, and tempeh.



For dessert, my hand snuck in Shane’s animal crackers:

Ooh, a lion!


With food in belly, I mustered up some motivation to get a little desk work done. I have a couple projects going on that need much more attention than I’ve been giving them lately. My 4 miler + weights sesh must have revved up my metabolism, because at 5:00 I was down stairs cooking dinner!


I peeled and chopped an eggplant and sauteed it with an onion. Next, I made my very own Tikka Masala sauce completely on a whim. You can imagine my surprise when I discovered it actually tasted wonderful! I’ll post the recipe soon in the recipes tab.



Yay for Indian food!

Eaten alongside asparagus and a jalepeno cheddar roll.

So hot, that it called for a cool down a few hours later. This my friends, is banana soft serve w/ dark chocolate chips mixed in.
