thoughts of a foodie.
“The way you do anything is the way you do everything.” **
Lunch Tuesday: Trout, avec green Tabasco, 1/2 sweet potato made into “cheetahs” with ketchup.
Massaged kale and veggies with vegan tahini caesar. Um, delicious. Praise to the Heavens for blogger inspiration. Gahh, I love you all of ladies.
Yes, my plates and bowls are actually as big as they seem. That is my hand. (Just if any of you were confused.)
A little dessert. Yes, that is a little glass! A 1/3 cup greek yogurt mixed with cocoa, layered with cheerios I had on hand and a dollop of MaraNatha dark chocolate PB.
Leftover coffeee, mid day. Mixed with cocoa.
Monday lunch- chicken breast drizzled with tahini, raw carrots+cucumber sliced on the mandolin, with lots of salsa. (This one’s for you, Susan!)
Broccoli salad on the side. This was a case, of surprisingly, TOO MANY vegetables! I didn’t know there was such a thing, but I actually could not finish my plate.
I cracked open a coconut. With my mad culinary skills. *Unfortunately, pure coconut water is way too sweet for my liking*. It was almost disgustingly sweet. It took a nice photo, but I didn’t drink it. But I thought my 12 year old Survivor loving self would have been proud.
Breakfast Monday- whipped banana oats:
- 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup water, vanilla, cinnamon, 1/2 banana
- Topped with 1/3 crumbled piece of banana bread and 1/4 Fuji apple zapped in the microwave, and a spoonful of PB
Sunday- a Greeen Monster! And this guy was very green. In the mix: 2 cups Vietnamese spinach, 1/2 frozen banana, 1 scoop vanilla protein, water, splash almond milk, ice. So tasty! This may be another reason for my lack overload of veggies. I’ve had quite a few of these the past week!
Served in a wine glass.
Lunch Sunday ^ salad with veggies and chicken,per usual.
I usually don’t eat a lot of pancakes, but just by coincidence my mom made us pancakes Sunday morning! In honor of HEAB one year anniversary and Pancake Sunday perhaps?! I’m going with it. Served alongside a cracked pepper egg.
Dinner Saturday ^ Grilled white fish, which I can’t remember what it is now. Alongside raw kale salad, the Bekah way.
**The quote I began this post with is just one of many very inspiring things Dave Farmar frequently states on his pod-casts. I never fail to smile, laugh or push through a yoga class because of him. He always makes the 60, or 75-90 (eek!) minutes of power vinyasa yoga interesting, attention grabbing and stress relieving.
This quote is something I strongly believe in; because in my opinion, when you pay attention to one aspect of your life, all aspects will soon follow suit because of that little extra attention to detail in your life. I know when I’m feeling my best, it is because I am on top of my game in every little way. From keeping my nails filed, to doing yoga frequently and eating intuitively to flossing my teeth and making my bed, it all overlaps one another, leading me to a happy and peaceful Bekah. Forgive me this once, for referring to myself in the 3rd person. You understand.
I do have my bad days- (actually my finger nails at the moment are in their dreary, fugly days) but I
try and put my best foot forward in time of self doubt and fear; and honestly- wearing my retainer and exercising regularly truly does make me feel cleaner, more refreshed, lighter and mentally/physically more able to do everything I want to do.
I call it the domino effect of life.
