The Ingredients and Details Make or Break It (You)

by Lisa on April 8, 2011

Katelyn came over yesterday, and we intended to go to the gym. But it didn’t happen. We ate and drank instead. The first thing we tried was totally disgusting. I’m not sure who would drink this—it tasted like the liquid out of a jar of fermented/cultured beets. The label says, “Like Kombucha? Try This!” Please, friends, do not spend $4 on this.

Live, Raw, Unpasteurized....Gross.

We did have mostly successes in the kitchen though!

Kale + Spinach + Salad Booster + Balsamic + Olive Oil + Hemp Seeds

There aren’t too many times when I eat a kale salad—the texture of the leaves is just not my favorite thing when they’re raw…but this salad may have changed that!

Best Olive Oil Ever. The living meaning of my friend Brian's words: "Don't buy sucky sh*t."

Protein Pancakes- You'll have to bug Chef Katelyn for the recipe! I'm totally amazed at how great these are!

Protein pancake with acai chia jam...I see how unattractive this is, but it's beautiful in my eyes! These were awesome and fluffy (not too dense like a lot of protein pancakes).

Tart Cherry Acai Chia Jam: Follow the Pom Acai Jam recipe, but sub in tart cherry juice for Pom. This was awesome!

I think we both agreed this version was even better than the original Pom version!

What will you do this weekend?

I’m totally thrilled to be forced to use Friday night and Saturday to get all my work done…so I can spend the rest of the weekend with Matthew!  My Mom and Fred are taking him to see something going on with fish (walleye?) at Muller Field Station in Honeoye on Saturday around noon, and then I’m going to bust in and take over.

On Gina’s blog this week, she posted this video–and it just cracks me up. I look at that and see two guys who are totally following their passion. They look like they’re having fun, right?

It makes me contemplate the fun (or lack of fun) in my life. I have this background feeling right now that I can’t wait till May 20th because (1) four of my eight classes will be done and (2) because Joe and I are going on vacation. I value enjoying the moments in life, even if they’re not fun or exciting. But when I look at the next six weeks, I see work, gym, food, bed, repeat. Aside from mainlining maca, I’m having trouble seeing how I can feel blissful for that, and at the same time I don’t want to wish my life away.

How do you bring fun into the day-to-day hamster wheel part of life? Is it all in the head/perspective?

…And who wants to do something fun next weekend??!!

What do you have to look forward to? I have something new to look forward to: I’ve been hired to design and implement a cleanse for some people who work in Hollywood in early June. I can’t talk much about it for confidentiality reasons, but I think that will be so much fun!  I also have a place to stay out there because my cousin lives in Santa Monica.
