As Juicy as a Peach


Nothing like starting your week with a PEACH!! I’m currently eating my body weight in peaches because I bought a huge carton of them from Costco. Oh Costco, how I love thee.

Anyways! Glad to hear y’all liked Adam’s videos of our trip! We had a really fun time and I think he documented it well (even though I was on livestream for two hours at the wine tasting and all you could see was my, err, behind)

I had the hardest time ever getting myself out of bed this morning. I think I slowlyyyyyy got out and then laid on the floor for a few minutes with Dexter. This was totally a coffee morning if there ever was one, but since I don’t have any coffee… was tea! Double Earl Gray on the fly, please. Thank you very much! I also had a toasted cinnamon raisin Ezekiel muffin with cinnamon raisin pb and preserves for a little breakfast

Then I got my butt to Yogani and met Courtney for a little Shakti Flow class. It was my first time in this class but Courtney says its her favorite so I knew I must try it. 🙂 It was hard! 90 minutes of very strengthening flow yoga—tons of chatarungas and inversions. My body totally needed it though; I’m so tight from last week and running! Some guy was extremely RUDE to me in the parking lot this morning and I had to channel some positive energy his way. I hate rude people, don’t you?!
The weather is super funky outside (thunder but no rain!) and I think its affecting my appetite since I have close to none. Weird! However, I still made a delicious salad for lunch to refuel from yoga-ing.


As I just twittered, I now am convinced Texas Pete goes on ANYTHING, even blueberries! Don’t hate till you try it though! 😉 This salad was a yummy combo of greens, chicken, goat cheese (!!), hummus, blueberries and the love of my life, Mr. Texas Pete. Pete, you have my heart.
Dessert was the before mentioned juicy peach!
Hot off the press!

Off to work on some emails, drive my mom to work, and meet Sarah for some catch-up coffee!!

    I feel the same way about “Scorned Woman” hot sauce as you feel about Texas Pete!

    I feel the same about “Sweet Baby Ray’s” BBQ sauce as you do about hot sauce (as I am not a hot sauce kinda gal).
    Your yoga class this morning with Courtney sounds SO amazing. I wish I could practice with you guys 😉 It’s so great how a hard class really makes you feel SO wonderful…what a reward!
    Have a wonderful rest of your day, dear!

    Hi Jenna! Just wondering… I thought you quit coffee? Are you drinking it again? Have a great day!

      I don’t drink coffee on a regular basis but I haven’t totally ruled it out. I like the taste of tea much better but if someone brings me a cup of coffee I’ll probably drink it! I just don’t go through the trouble of making it myself! hahaha

    Goats cheese? I’m there!! 🙂

    I probably shouldn’t say this, but why do Americans put cinnamon in pretty much everything? I miss just plain raisin toast. I honestly believe people think it is a condiment!! 🙂

    I am not a hardcore yogini like you–I just do Pilates and some of my other fitness classes involve some yoga poses. But I cannot for the life of me do chatarungas! Any advice? I have a lot of upper body strength and can do full push-ups, etc, but my body does NOT want to hold that pose!

    • jenna
      July 27, 2009 at 2:35 pm


      If you have a lot of upper body strength, you might just be doing them wrong OR you might not have enough core strength. Although Chatarungas do take a lot of upper body strength, they also rely on your core A LOT. I would just practice every day. It took me awhile to do be able to do it comfortably! Next time you are at yoga class, ask the instructor to help you–I’m sure they would be more than willing!


      I didn’t know there were flavors? I just use regular ol’ Texas Pete!


      Hot sauce!!

      katie S,

      hahahaha I have no idea but thank you! I just blow it dry then run a flat iron over it to seal it because its so humid outside! Maybe I shall do a haircare post one of these days…

    I love that you were channeling positive energy towards the rude man! I just had a rude encounter and I got super flustered over it. It’s throwing my day off–but I’m going to go with your outlook. It’s more fun, afterall.

    I totally felt like that this morning. The GM wouldn’t help and that’s how you know it’s a serious case of the Mondays!

    I love Frank’s Red Hot Sauce and treat it much like you treat your Texas Pete. I haven’t gone as far as pairing it with fruit though…yet. (-;

  • Danielle

    I must get some Texas Pete, I love trying new hot sauces. 🙂

    I like how positive you are about the rude encounter, my problem is that I am generally rude/snide/snarky back to the person. I don’t think this is really productive because all it does is keep me in a negative mood after the encounter is long over. Life sure is one big learning process.

    I love peaches too, and right now they are at their juciest, even thought they are probably better in the south!
    I love hot sauce on everything too, it just makes it that much better:)

    I have been eating lots of peaches and nectarines too. They are so juicy and sweet right now. I love um!

    Goat cheese is possibly the best addition to a salad! Along with hummus…killer combo!!

    I swear, Costco’s peaches are the best I’ve ever found. The ones from the grocery/health food store don’t even compare. And they’re HUGE!

    You have made me a Texas Pete convert, haha. I used to never use it, but now I am convinced that eggs are not complete without it 🙂 Perhaps I’ll move up to sandwiches and salads later?? Sounds like a great yoga class, and booooo for rude people!!

    Jenna, those photos are lovely! Have you taken photography or are you self-taught? I’m dying to improve my photography, but I can’t afford a new camera, and I don’t know where to begin. Do you do much editing after you shoot? Just curious…

    • jenna
      July 27, 2009 at 4:53 pm


      I WISH I was a pro photographer! I think my next BIG investment (someday) will be a professional camera…the big ones! I just love it. I love capturing pieces of time on camera..but to answer your question, no, I’ve never had any training if you don’t count taking pictures of everything that has gone in my mouth for two years! lol! I don’t edit anything…I just have a tiny canon and just click away! I think a small canon is a great way to get started.

    Jenna – I never had hummus on a salad until I began reading your blog. Now I do it all the time and love it. (And use the hot sauce on it, too.) Nice suggestion.

  • Chloe

    Love the idea of a salad with hummus as a dressing! And that peach looks mighty fine too, I’m twiddling my thumbs up here in Seattle until it’s peach season.

      LOVE me some chana masala! I think that might be the “best” for a newbie because its just chickpeas….I also looove eggplant bhartha, which is really just pureed eggplant with spices. Oh gosh, you totally have me craving Indian food right now!!!

    Thanks so much for recommending the Ezekiel English Muffins. I tried out the Sprouted Grain and LOVE them! I’ll definitely have to give the cinnamon raison a try as well. 🙂
