My daughter had her last day of school shindig in a nearby playground this morning. We basically had a go with the flow kind of day as far as eating was concerned. Bagels with cream cheese, muffins, juice and coffee at the park with the rest of the families. Cupcakes for her friend's birthday. I then had the most delightful mouthful of awesomeness: a gluten free almond macaron. It was marvelous. As soon as I get my hands on the recipe I'll post it!
There is a bit of construction happening in our kitchen today. Luckily I was able to get into the fridge to grab some of the leftova quesadillas, guac and tortilla chips, and some cut up pineapple. She wasn't that into the leftovas, but happily shoveled the pineapple into her hungry little face.
Since the kitchen was a dusty mess from all the work today; we ate out, and I'm excited to share how yummy it was! We decided to try Bareburger based on a few cool facts I had heard about it. 1. They serve organic & local foods. 2. I heard that everything is delicious. 3. They offer pitchers of beer. SCORE! I LOVE ordering a pitcher of cold delicious beer and sharing it with freinds. We didn't do that tonight, but... DATE NIGHT HERE WE COME!
A note about the foods I choose:
I make it a priority to buy local and organic foods as much as I can. I plan for the week, buy in bulk, absolutely use my left overs and I get courageously creative with our meals to save time and money. Since avoiding GMOs and other questionable icky unnatural ingredients is important to me, I give it the attention it deserves. I feel that cheap food (I'll talk more about this later) is an illusion. Over time using quality organic foods has drastically changed our lives for the better. I'm not an expert, I'm just good at experimenting so I've learned a lot.
My mission as a health coach is to help you live a courageously healthy life that you love. I'm hearing from my clients that they simply want to feel better. They want to feel in control of their health. Not only is this possible, but it can be joyful. Small steps, big results. Lasting change takes time, but luckily life is long.
( I invite you to take a deep breath after reading that last sentence.)
