Griffith Park, looking fine.

Griffith Park, looking fine.

I managed to fit in some yoga AND a nice walk on beautiful day 28. I felt very accomplished. My activity level has been all over the place due to my schedule and I HATE THAT. I love consistency in my active life (well… in everything actually. I can be a bit of a control nut…)



Only 2 more days to go of The Clean Slate! And both of them will be spent at DISNEYLAND Just you watch how a girl can clean her plate while at an amusement park full of treats. It’ll be inspiring for sure.

Clean Eats


Breakfast: scrambled eggs with roasted potato and pepper hash

Lunch: Chicken and Butternut Squash

Snack: some sips of ginger kombucha and a handful of homemade Paleo-ish Trail Mix (recipe tomorrow!)

Dinner: some leftover smokey roast and a small Lively Smoothie

INGREDIENTS // one of my favorite activities is going out for coffee. For me, the sights, sounds, and smells of a coffee shop signal rest and I enter into a state of slowing down, more observing and less doing. Lately, I haven't been out to coffee too often because 1. It's expensive and 2. I don't tolerate dairy and I'm not much of a black coffee drinker so at most shops I'm limited to their dairy-free options. While it's nice to have nut milks available, I have discovered that all the other ingredients in these alternative drinks do NOT do my body any good. 
A solution to would be to bring my own homemade milk, but I don't always have some ready or I forget to put a bit in a small container (which then gives me the fun task of toting around a dirty jar in my car all day). These smaller bottles of almond milk are perfect for adding to my coffee when I'm out as most dairy-free milks come in huge cartons and are inconvenient for a coffee outing.  @popandbottle only uses basic, real food ingredients for their almond milk. They even sweeten it with a bit of date! 
I like to think that I always have a choice about what I put in my body. Sometimes I'll have to settle for black coffee, but if I plan a bit, I can still enjoy my coffee outings without ultimately compromising on what is best for me in the long run. SNACKS // kept it really simple today during meal prep. This is a tasty bowl of yams, banana, almond butter, and coconut flakes. FAST FOOD// Roasted all these veggies last night for a tasty quick lunch. Added a new find from Whole Foods. @goodlovinfoods lemon garlic dip. If you like bitchen sauce, you'll like this (!! bonus, they don't use any soy ingredients either !!) ROUTINE// Who else is meal prepping today? It's a small step that has big impact on your health... body and mind. One less stress to consider in a week full of choices and obstacles. #paleomealprep #sandiegoprivatechef #sandiegopaleo
