Lunches lately ..

Are what I like to call a kitchen sink salads. It’s a little bit of everything tossed into a big bowl. And it always tastes so good.

I’m not afraid to mix a wide range of flavors.

A little bit of spinach, kale, blueberries, goat cheese, carrots, veg burger {topped with bbq sauce!} .. you get the idea.

Just look at all those colors! Talk about eating the rainbow 😀

It’s so much fun to eat healthy<3

Do you ever eat “crazy combos” like this? Or do you like to keep things separately?


Whats happening wednesday ?!

These past few days have been semi busy, yet very well needed! It feels good to scratch things off your to do list.
Since Wednesday is the middle of the week, I thought I’d share what’s been happening around these parts these past few days!

* * *

I love the raw cookie dough. Mmm semolina 😉
Perfect afternoon treat.

On Monday night, George and I went to see The Great Gatsby
I really didn’t know the story line to be honest but I knew the time
period and love that period. The director did a great job & I loved the hip hop soundtrack!

You can listen to the full album here.

On Monday I said I wanted to start a herb garden.
This morning George & I were up and planting by 930 : )
What a great way to start a summer morning!

{I chose: cinnamon basil, flat parsley, jalapeño peppers & cherry tomatoes}

^starting small^
We hope to add a few more things soon.

Just got back from errands with my sista {and inhaled this salad^}
we went all over the place!
{home goods/Marshalls/ Ross/ coffee}
We had to stop because we both felt famished!
but I did buy a cute new dress 😉
{Salad-Spinach, cherry tomatoes ,olives, feta, carrots, pita chips, orange chicken}

IMG_3738^I feel like this right now.. YAWN!^


I’m off to maybe do a small cat nap, & maybe lace up my sneakers and take a run around the
neighborhood since its national running day! : )
then meeting up with a girlfriend when she done work tonight.

enjoy your evening
