Number One.

Posted Sep 21 2011 2:14pm

Good afternoon lovelies! This marks blog post number one. I kind of feel like this:

Breakfast

Today, the alarm went off at 7:00 a.m., like always. I don’t know what it is about the morning but I am always immediately hungry when I wake up!


 

Into the bowl went about 1 cup of Nature’s Path Heritage Grains  cereal (best cereal ever!) and 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk, along with a banana. Fun fact: I have a specific method of eating cereal. Afterall, it is serious business!

1.) I always eat my fruit first.

2.) I wait until my cereal is slightly soggy so I get a perfect balance of crunch and sogginess.

3.) I’m sure you think I’m crazy and no longer want to read this blog. Good first post, Heather.

Lunch

Lunch is pretty much the same for me, with slight variations in between. I always, always, always (did I say always?) have a salad for lunch. Not only is it super healthy but, when you prep it the right way, it is delicious and can tide you over until dinner time! I personally find the different textures of a salad very satisfying. Today’s creation is a staple of mine:

Note the mini floating broccoli floret.

I served the salad alongside two slices of Sesame Ezekiel bread  and organic ketchup for dipping. You’ll come to know (and probably spit at) my adoration for ketchup. I can’t explain it but it exists and I honor it.

For those of you that are wondering, nutritional yeast is a dry, inactive yeast that is cultured with sugarcane and beet molasses. It contains vitamin B-12, which vegans and vegetarians are often deficient in. Gena over at Choosing Raw  had a great post featuring Dr. Stuart A Seale, M.D., on vitamin B-12, which explains how plant-based diets are not at fault for their vitamin B-12 deficiency.

I’m off to tackle some homework and fit in a total-body weights workout. Matty is coming up tonight and we’re hitting up a new dinner spot!

Question of the Day

What are you most excited for this fall?

I am so ready for the heat to leave and give way to light breezes and crisp air! Fall is my favorite season for so many reasons:

  • Anything and everything pumpkin (get ready for pumpkin paraphernalia up in here, folks!)
  • Apple picking
  • Sleeping through chilly nights with the covers
  • Comfy, over-sized sweaters

 

Stay lovely,

Heather
