Do You Juice? Here’s My Favorite Recipe!

Hi guys!

Crazy Good Eats (Lots of Pics)

I love a day that’s filled with good eats. I’m a foodie, so what do you expect!?

Anyone else love the show “Good Eats” with Alton Brown? My fave cooking show by far!

Thursday

I started the morning off with fresh made juice

Then, I left home and headed out to go do some social media marketing for someone, so once I arrived…I was starving. Juice just doesn’t cut it! Good thing I brought along a Clif Crunch Bar! Yes, these things are amazing. Go try one. Might not be the #1 healthiest bar out there, but sheesh, its delicious!

One of the highlights of my day was heading to EarthFare to make a salad from the fresh salad bar!

In the mix: Mixed salad greens, cauliflower, bell peppers, onions, cucumber, just a few pieces of cantaloupe, grapes, strawberries, and pineapple, grilled chicken, 1/2 boiled egg, green olives…When I got home, I added my own feta cheese and dressing! I’m just weird I guess.

Also, I drank a delicious Zevia along with it! Go try one! They are delicious, especially since it’s getting so warm out…these make a great choice over artificial sugar & calorie filled junk sodas. Zevia for the win!

Got home around 3:20 and that meant coffee and getting myself pumped up for an easy 3 mile run…HAHA, that turned around! I ended up running a medium paced 5.2 mile run without stopping.

Also picked up a new bright RBX shirt from TJMaxx (love that place) that was $7.99…had to share that. They have amazing deals like no other!

Sports Bra is a Jockey brand bra. Loved it! It was very comfortable ($12.99) and had criss-cross straps which I like!

I have no idea what I’m doing with my hand, by the way!

Check out that bruise! Yeah, its been there for a week and I’m really starting to hate it.

Dinner was leftover lentil bean and Italian sausage stew. Eat your lentils! Going to try to have this meal every week.

For dessert…I had KEY LIME PIE!

Okay, no no no, I didn’t really. I sort of did though. I had picked up a Fage Key Lime Pie yogurt at Publix and it tasted just like Key Lime Pie!!
