Day Sixteen ~ Vegan Challenge

Day 16 For breakfast I had toast again. Then for lunch I crumbled a veggie burger over rice. For dinner I went with a simple spinach salad with lots of fresh veggies. Then I followed Day Three of the Five Day Workout Plan. Up the weights if you need to! Then followed Jillian Michael’s yoga video below. It’s a great stretch while working the muscles.

Day Eleven ~ Vegan Challenge

I’m getting behind again! Here is day 11. Day 11 Daniel made me a beautiful salad for lunch. Can’t go wrong with some strawberries and blueberries! For dinner I followed yet another recipe from Melissa at My Whole Food Life. Easy White Bean Salad. It’s so refreshing! I liked it but I added some balsamic vinaigrette to the final product for some more tangy flavor. Now, get ready for this amazing dessert I had! I […]

To keep my body and brain fueled during work, I made a fruit smoothie to take with. It was not very pretty and I was a little embarrassed to have people see inside my cup. This is obviously an old photo (blond wood table) but it […]

Curry Pumpkin Soup, Almond Crusted Tilapia, & Blackberry Cobbler

I had an amazing anniversary yesterday with Daniel.  We spent a good portion of the day still unpacking but dinner was delicious. We picked up a few more things from my parent’s house and my dad happened to be making Curry Pumpkin soup, a recipe he got from his friend Monica in Germany. She actually made it for all of us while I was there. It’s spicy and sweet! My dad did a fairly good […]
