Mint Chip Smoothie

I’ve really been into these smoothies lately. Usually I shy away from them because I generally don’t like to drink my food. I love food. I love eating. So drinking usually leaves me feeling a bit unsatisfied. But I can to this realization that drinking a smoothie usually means that I get to have breakfast twice… and I LOOOVE breakfast. So I’ll have my smoothie in the morning (before yoga) and then for lunch I will usually make my “breakfast” eggs, bacon, etc… It’s pretty awesome. I feel like I’ve tricked the universe.

If you think that’s sneaky, just wait till you make this smoothie. Not only does it suffice for a breakfast food, but it’s also like eating dessert. WHAAAAT?! Seriously. Dessert and Breakfast in one. So sneaky.

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌶 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad 🥑🍋🌶🥒
This was SO EASY to throw together.
.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
.
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. ☀️🥗☀️🥗☀️ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
.
Be back later!
