Dessert/ Dinner/ Lunch

Flying Coffee and Park Benches

Hey guys!

I hope everyone had a great Monday! This morning Kath and I were total food blogger geeks and had a massive coffee photoshoot in downtown Healdsburg. It was awesome 🙂








What can I say? Coffee makes me giggle and leap off benches.


We had a blast. I was so sad to see her off on her go….I need to plan a trip back to the east coast at some point! 🙂

Work was not nearly as fun as playing in the park. Almost, but not quite. I actually haven’t felt 100% all day….I think I just totally overloaded my system with glorious food over the weekend and I feel the need to detox or something. What I REALLY need to do is start juicing again…I have my juicer that I brought with me from Florida and I have all this amazing California produce. There’s no reason why not.

Anyways, lunch was a sandwich with hummus, laughing cow cheese, bread and butter pickles, avocado and spinach—


Carrots + a pear!


Green tea x 2


A crack pure protein bar for snack—


I got home around 5:30 and was STARVING (the icky feeling faded fast, apparently). Dinner was totally random but worked. All I did was roast 2 delicata squash and then mix the pieces into whole wheat couscous with tofu and mix the whole mess with thai red curry sauce.


That picture wasn’t the best….but I knew Kath would kill me if I used the flash…… 😉

My snackish-dessert tonight was a yogurt with a little bit of elite Hotel Healdsburg granola on top. Muhahaha


I was going to do more work tonight but honestly, I think I’m going to go soak in a really hot bubble bath right now instead and call it a night. Tomorrow I’m actually getting up early and going to a SPINNING class (can you even believe it?!) at my new gym.

Sweet dreams!

    Have fun at Spinning! I’m going tomorrow too. I think your photos are looking great, can’t believe there is such a big difference between the 2 cameras but it’s true! Watch out for your ankle jumping off park benches ;).

    Healdsberg looks like the most adorable southern California town ever :). And the photos you and Kath took are so fun, I’m glad you two and others had such a wonderful weekend. Hopefully the bubble bath will have you in tip-top shape in no time!

    Yes, it takes practice learning how to use the manual but it’s worth it and your photos are really looking great!

    I used to spin years ago…my biggest fear was getting eaten alive by the peddles. One slip and ouch…do you use clip on shoes?

    Have a great time!

    Good luck with Spinning! That can be a serious but-kicking experience. That hummus sandwich sounds so filling! I’ve been sticking to basic hummus and chesse, but the addition of butter pickles and avacado….yummm.

    Glad you and Kath had such a great time. Headlesburg looks so quaint and beautiful!

    Hooray for spinning! I love the classes at my gym – it’s a great workout and a good alternative to running. I try to focus on my upstrokes as much as my downstrokes – this helps strengthen all the leg muscles.

    Your pictures made me smile– It’s nice to see you out and about enjoying and living life to the fullest!

    P.S. there’s nothing wrong with taking a night off from work. Self-care is important and crucial to incorporate in our daily lives!

    Have a wonderful day, lovely lady!

    That hummus and veggie sandwich looks AWESOME. As does your park bench jumping 🙂

    I love to see you so happy and settled Jenna – you’re such an inspiration!

    Have a great spinning class! I’ve never done one before but I hear they are INTENSE!

    When I overdo it, I want juice as well! Of course, I don’t have a juicer so I have to make do with some green odwalla or Naked brand juice. It’s pretty tasty but not as veggie-ful as I would like. The last time I overdid it (I had a cold and a guest in town so I ate really decadent dinners at restaurants for a week straight!), I found a place that actually does wheatgrass shots, so I had a wheatgrass shot and a carrot/beet juice. Yum! (Am I weird for thinking wheatgrass is delicious?) Unfortunately, this place is really far away from my house so I won’t be going there often. It did make me feel better though.

    SO jealous! I was in Healdsburg in October (Columbus Day long weekend) and am absolutely in love and MUST MUST MUST go back. Seeing these pics, and the Flying Goat bring me back…can I work for you? I’m in PR, I could totally just be the publicity chick!! 😉 Pretty please?! 🙂

    I’ve never been to spin… I guess I always feel intimidated by it, but everyone has to start somewhere so I don’t know why I am!

    Looks like you guys had a great morning– I’m so glad that you seem to be enjoying CA so much!

    Spin is awesome but totally kills the cooch. (Sorry, but it had to be said.) Your squash mix looks killer and I love the black and white sweater. I’m a sucker for horizontal stripes.

    I’ve been considering getting a juicer, but I’m afraid I won’t like any of my concoctions and it will be a waste of money. 🙁 Maybe for Christmas.

    Sometimes nothing is better than a big bowl of veggies and rice, you know? I think that’s why I like those Amy’s bowls so much! Although, making your own from scratch is always the best!
