Got Juiced!

Well, we didn’t make it on the boat today. The weather is kind of overcast and R and I got sucked into running errands and now we are just relaxing on the couch watching the Masters (obviously!).

This morning while we were running around, I snacked on a HUGE apple and the rest of my cranberry Kombucha from yesterday


Lunch was the (semi) usual. Ryan got Quiznos and I got a yummy spread from my fave health food market. And I finally got that juice I was CRAVING…..this is a 16 oz carrot, apple, ginger, celery, beet and spinach juice


It was SO good. I need to get a juicer!!!! While the Vita Mix does juice, it doesn’t go all out to remove all the seeds and fruit/veggie “flesh”, making for a thicker juice.

I also got a large version of my favorite…kale salad! I don’t know what they do, but their kale salad runs circles around my kale salad. It is soooo yummy and very satisfying. I got their garlic-y signature hummus over top to increase the yum factor


Oh! And two of Abbie’s a-m-a-z-i-n-g donut holes!


All together now:


It was the perfect light lunch. And I’ll have a substantial protein-y snack in a little bit. We are tossing around dinner ideas now….options include grilling out here or going out for pizza, burgers, Cuban, Bonefish (my pick) or Pei Wei.

See you in a bit!

edited to add: Who was I kidding?! I need more carbs and protein in that meal. Not even 20 minutes after lunch I was STARVING (duh), so I had another piece of Ezekiel toast with almond butter for another 8 grams of protein and complex carbs. Now hopefully that combo in addition to lunch will hold me over til’ snacktime……hehe

    The real question is: where did you get that ADORABLE dress you are wearing? I swear, I think some of you food/fitness bloggers really need to share your fashion choices on a regular basis! 😉

      Thanks! I got that from Urban Outfitters almost 2 years ago! I rarely wear it because it is on the short side and if it is windy strangers might get a show! haha

    Glad you got your juice! Mine did not hold me over on my run. Lesson learned. I think juices are probably a better “snack” than meal option for me.

    Hi. I’m new to your blog and I am really enjoying it. Bonefish is one of my favorite places to eat. Unfortuately, I live in NY but whenever I go to Florida (usually twice a year) I make sure I get my Bonefish fix. Lol.
