SPROUT WRAP

This wrap is so simple, and oh so yummy!  It's just a multi grained wrap, layered with spicy bean dip, guacamole, sliced smoked gouda goat cheese, broccoli sprouts and mixed cherry tomatoes.  I could eat this everyday!  And it took under 5 minutes to make, including the time to get the stuff out and put it away.  Double win!

MACA CACAO SHAKE

A pretty shake, that I can't remember what all is in it.... Something along the lines of spinach, sprouts, blueberries, peaches, orange juice, maca powder and cacao powder.  It was a strange combination.  It tasted good, but had such a strongness to it that I could only finished part of it.  I need to remember to make smaller shakes, b/c even the best tasting ones I usually don't finish.  Not good.  I love being surprised by the color everytime I make a shake.  James has been making them alot lately, and its so cute when he comes to show it to me just b/c it is a pretty color!  (and oh my, how pretty does it look with that rug???)

PIN-FOODIE INSPIRATION

I just found this image above via pinterest, and immediately wanted to eat this!  So I headed over to the blog it came from to see what she put in it, and it was so simple.  I made my own (below), and within 15 minutes of seeing this pic, I was in food heaven myself.  Yum.  Thank you pinterest on this fine sunday afternoon for the inspiration.

I have spent the day cleaning house and rearranging.  Adding in all the river rocks we picked up yesterday.  I'll post some pics from our anniversary within the next few days.

Family Time + An Amazing Meal >>>

Yesterday was such a good day.  I had called my Nanna to see if we could come over for dinner and see some of the family b/c I was really missing everyone.  Of course she said yes!  But I warned her I wouldn't be able to actually eat what everyone was eating since Im on my food fast, so I brought my meal with me.  These are some of my favorite things to eat, and together its like heaven.  It will definitely become a regular meal of mine way beyond the fast.  Im doing a 10 day juice/smoothie/raw food fast.  And this meal cheats a little bit, but Ive given myself a few out of bounds okays...

It is one sliced avocado with green onions, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, a little sea salt and lemon.  A tomato with feta, pear balsalmic vinegar and pepper and garlic sprinkles.  Yum!!!  Amazingly flavorful and filling.  I was soooo proud of myself to stick to my guns while everyone was eating yummy bbq chicken and sausage, and homeade potato salad and macaroni and cheese, and BROWNIES!!  It was hard, very hard, to pass up my Nanna's brownies.  But I did it!  

It was simply one of the best nights over there too.  The whole family was there and everyone was in a good mood and really enjoyed each other.  Well, except my little nephew.  Poor boy had a tummy ache and was not a happy camper for most of the night.  James and two of my uncles played guitar in the living room and we all just sat around and enjoyed them.  It was just one of those really good evenings with your family.  It doesn't happen everytime we get together, but when it does, it just makes my heart sing.
