All The Necessary Food Groups

Good day!

Yoga was great today although I still can’t do things that involve bending my knees very much after my little boo-boo last week. That rules out child’s pose, crow, tree and camel. But I can do lots of downward facing dogs and chatarungas! I’m SO (!!!!) excited to go to yoga grooves on Friday morning at my old studio and practice with Jen and Patrick (Court, we’ll miss you!!!). I also am planning on doing some runs down Bayshore. Funny how we take things for granted when they are right in front of us and then when we leave, we realize just how beautiful our surroundings were!

I had a well balanced lunch post-yoga:

Let see…I think I got all the food groups in. Protein in the form of a Quorn/gruyere patty with sriracha, fruit, carbs and gummi bears! I actually ate another cookie after this….these SCM cookies are just waaaay too good to stop at one! 😉
I’m checking things off my to-do list this afternoon. Still to come—paying my bills, cleaning the house and finishing packing before its back off to the studio to work the desk for a few hours before dinner.
Check ya later!

    Love that you added gruyere to the patty – that is one of my most favorite cheeses!

    It’s definitely easy to take the “normal” for granted — I totally do, until I leave for a long trip and remember all the amazing things at home.

    I’ve seen those quorn gruyere patties but can’t decide whether to give them a try. I love gruyere–but in frozen form?

    is there something special about these gummy bears? or are they just regular ones? I’ve recently become addicted to gummy bears. they’re so fun to eat!

    gummi bears are SO addicting! at least they aren’t the sour ones — those are also quite addicting, but always cut up my mouth!

    have fun at yoga!

    Jenna- so excited for your trip home! I know how close you are to your family, and you have been so brave to leap into your new life on the other side of the country 🙂
    And Haribo gummi bears= heaven. Every now and then I too get a craving for a chewy candy and just buy a bag and go to town. I support!

    FYI- Now that I’m a Married Woman, I decided to change my blog a bit and have a new address:

    Even though I took a little hiatus, I still followed you every day. Constantly. Duh.

    Sending you warm wishes for a wonderful trip home!

    I’m curious…did you like quorn instantly or was it an acquired taste? I’m scared to try it!

    I totally feel that way about San Diego. I lived here my whole live and didn’t appreciate it AT ALL until I left for college (upstate New York). Then I realized how amazing my hometown is, and now I’m back…probably for good!

    Jenna, I just down two SCM cookies and now rushing out the door to a kickboxing class. They really are energizing (and you can’t just have one)!!. Unfortunately those were the last two, so I need to make some more!

    But those Quorn gruyere cutlets look amazing.

    Okay…..do you literally only eat one gummy bear, or is that the only that made it to the pictures?!? I could only eat one for about 2 seconds, followed urgently by a whole handful all at once.

    Ok, I have really got to make those cookies. I keep saying that but never get around to it.
    And sounds like a great lunch! A balanced lunch = cookies for dessert 🙂

    Haha, I did the same thing recently– impulse purchasing gummi bears. I didn’t have quite the restraint that you did to stretch them out over several meals…

  • Serena

    Your overnight oats look delicious 🙂 I need to go and make some !
    Also, red gummi bears = LOVE LOVE LOVE but not vegan so no more for me 😛

    LOVE gummi bears – they’re soooo good!

  • eatmovelove
    February 3, 2010 at 6:11 pm

    The only problem is that 1 gummi is not enough!!! Don’t you know that candy is meant to be eaten by the handful 🙂
    Jenna, do you like to cook and bake as much as writing and yoga??? I assume that’s the focus of your book? I love that you baked stellar cookies – do you spend much time with this then ?

  • Whitney
    February 3, 2010 at 6:40 pm

    Is there a recipe for those scm cookies? =] you keep mentioning them in your posts, and I would love to know more about them.

  • Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman

    So you’re saying gummy bears are a food group. Sweet. And I’m assuming they’re at the bottom of the pyramid with a recommended 3-5 servings daily. Right?

  • Jessie

    Gruyere — super classy! 🙂

    And those cookies really are too good to stop at just one!

    Glad you’re looking forward to some fun things this weekend! I agree–sometimes we have to step away from something to really appreciate what kind of role and blessing it was in our life 🙂
