Easter dinner was superb—I helped my mom in the kitchen and snacked on some of these yummy raw cookies and goldfishies 🙂
Look at my mom’s gorgeous popovers!!!
And the chef behind the scenes—
The rest of the family had a steak dish but honestly, since Meatless in March, steak just hasn’t been as appealing to me. I’ve never been a steak girl (I probably eat one steak a year) but lately I just haven’t been feeling it. It really weighs me down and makes me feel very heavy. Not what I am looking for right now! Instead, I had a fabulous veggie plate!
My plate included a yummy baked garnet yam, balsamic asparagus, a popover, leftover sweet & sour cabbage (my FAV!), and a huge salad made with organic greens, toasted almond slices, feta and pretty edible flowers!
And Margaret brought sangria! I had a small glass—
And then for dessert—–
I made the raw coconut lemon bars from Ani’s Raw Kitchen!
These tasted a lot like the lemon zest larabar. I was so proud of myself! They were so easy to make (just threw everything in the Vita Mix!) and turned out great after a couple hours in the fridge. Ingredients included soaked almonds, unsweetened organic coconut, lemon juice, lemon zest and medjool dates. Holy yum!
This afternoon I did Level 2 of The Shred for the first time. Challenging! I thought all the cardio moves were great though…I love how Jillian switches it up. I definitely did NOT use my infamous 8 lb weights though….I think I used 2 or 3 lb weights that I found in the garage. Haha 😉
Everyone is still having fun downstairs but now, unfortunately, it is Jenna-time to get ready for bed. 🙁 Definitely NOT looking forward to that 3 AM wake up call tomorrow! I hope everyone has had a lovely Easter, full of family and friends, and I will see you tomorrow after my physical therapy appointment (eek!).
