My husband Fabian might be the professional chef, but I am the chef at home =) Lets be kind and rewind to yesterday! A big grocery shop was in order, and grocery shop I did. Well as much as possible. With the threat, er I mean joy of work on Monday morning looming over my head, I was definitely in no mood to grocery shop, I just wanted to chill. And that feeling led to procrastination, and procrastination led to well an okay grocery shop as opposed to a wonderful one.I did brave the store with my list and came home pretty excited about what I got:

Grocery Haul

I got:

– Sweet potatoes
– Red potatoes
– Clementines
– AMAZING Grapefruit
– Carrots
– Granola
– Organic Eggs
– Asparagus
– Fennel
– Cilantro
– Cornbread
– Almond Breeze
– Spinach
– Spring mix
– Frozen papaya
– Bananas
– Flank Steak
– Roasted Garlic chicken sausage
– Beans and tomato sauce for chili later this week

Annnd a couple of other things. In the very near future, I would like to have a set budget for weekly grocery shopping. Right now, I tend to plan but often feel with more planning we could trim the amount we spend in this category.

After such an exhausting grocery shop, dinner was really easy! Trader Joe’s Indian Fare lentils over brown rice with chicken.

After, the husband and I watched an episode of SNL and it was night night for me. Getting ready to finally eat dinner and kind of unwind from my first day at work.Most of tonight was more prepping (i.e. the fun smoothie bags I created below) Okay, maybe not your definition of fun, but I’m super excited about making my green monster in the morning thanks to these babies!

Each little baggie contains 1 cup of mixed berries, 1 cup of papaya, 1/2  a banana that will be added to lightly steamed spinach, almond breeze and protein powder for a green monster on the run!

Speaking of run, I have to eat and get some sleep. I swear, sometimes I feel like the to-do list is endless. At least its fun =)

Have a great night!


Good afternoon!!

I actually went to bed pretty early last night..and then overslept!! What is going on? Anyway, I rushed to get ready for church, and got on my way. You know how they say breakfast is the most important meal of the day? Well, that might be the case, but I didn’t eat it. With this whole sinus infection thing, my appetite hasn’t exactly been normal.  On the way out the door was a tea I picked up at Trader Joe’s last night, and a little more than half of Luna Bar’s Nutz Over Chocolate.

Cold Season

So about the tea. I’m totally a tea and coffee person, and I’m acquiring quite the stash. I picked this up last night because I am incredibly congested, and I keep waking my husband up with my noisy breathing. I’d love to stop doing that. Not to mention that, well I love food. And as we speak, I can’t taste much. (Except for that Indian food last night)

I digress.

Yogi Tea’s Cold Season is supposed to support respiratory tract health. It contains Ginger, Cardamom, Cinnamon, Clove, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Basil and Lemongrass. Whew! Long list. It also contains other spices and herbs but the most interesting of the list was the Black Pepper. Oh, and Oregano leaf. To me, it has a strong peppery taste, but I’m not feeling the warming effects of all of those spices that are supposed to warm.

The verdict is still out on whether or not this is working, but I’ll be sure to keep you updated.Off I go for a real grocery shop and possibly to renew my gym membership.  Up later, my groceries, a recap of my birthday dinner, a revamp to the about me page and plans for the week! Have a wonderful Sunday!
