Nailed It

I have been trying to eat clean for my daily life. Don't get confused, I'm not some die hard believer of that silly saying, "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels." Umm, clearly whoever said this, has never had shrimp and grits from the heart of New Orleans. Or raviolis in Little Italy. Or 4 Rivers BBQ. You get the point.

But I am conscious of my day to day and the need for healthy eating and living and all that jazz. For example, I don't have a cookie just cause it's a cookie and it's there. I'm not wasting the calories on any ol'choc chip, know what I mean?

Some days I fail, some days I soar. I work in an office environment where it's always someone's birthday, therefore there's always someone's cake. And if that doesn't happen, like clockwork at 3pm each day, I hit the crash and feel like if I do not get a sugar fix as soon as like yesterday, I will lose my mind. Basically, I turn into my Poppy and "just need a little somethin' sweet and cold to drink, dah'lin". Brooklyn accent optional.

Alas, I have found what does work for me is to meal prep yummy, nutritional meals that serve my body and mind some type of balanced purpose. I must say that last night...last night I hit the ball out of the park for my meal prepping for today's breakfast, lunch, and snackies.

Nailed.It.

We've got:
my yogurt with fresh fruit topping for bfast;
two small lunches since that works best for me-a salad and then salmon with vegs and sweet potato;
healthy snacks that will quench salty or sweet urges

By the way, the green things in the baggy? Those are dehydrated snap peas and those are damn delicious. Get you some! Now let's see what Tuesday-Thursday bring. I've got goals and high ambitions, my friends.



Do you meal prep or wing it?

Until we meet again,
M

Today is a good day, my friends. Today means at the 6 o'clock hour I shall enter a four day weekend. Full of what, you ask? So far on the agenda is:

-trying out a very new and deliciously enticing restaurant known as Cooper's Hawk and Winery;
-finishing the rest of season 5 and all of season 6 for Sons of Anarchy-which is phenom BTW;
-and enjoying the beautiful weather we are projected to experience, with extra SPF of course.

I like to call this agenda a little something known as living the American dream indeed.

Oh and I'll be toting around my newly obtained Kate Spades. Surprise 75% off sale, what? I CANNOT wait for the tote! I'll give you a hint until I can show the new ol'gal off #baconeggandcheeseplease :):)

Any how, I have to go shopping now ( Love a good Pretty Woman reference) get to finishing my day so the fun can begin. Hope everyone has a safe, fun, relaxing good time. Or go wild and have to retrace events to determine how good it really was. Ju…
