Hello beautiful humans!
It’s day 26 on my Whole30–26!
I can’t believe it. If you can’t tell, my spirits are high and my energy is THROUGH THE ROOF! (I challenge you to count the number of exclamation points in this post… *wink*)
Here is a recap of the last few weeks, plus a delicious omelette… Continue reading
The days are just flying by now. I honestly cannot keep up! Yesterday was meal prep day, whoop! The usual. I cooked and caught up on household chores, homework, and studying. Oh—and watched the Broncos lead the way into the Superbowl (while working on mobility, course)! Pictured above was my Sunday, yumday breakfast which consisted of Continue reading
Remember me raving about meal prep day yesterday? Well here is one of those recipes that is totally saving me this week, Bacon Egg Breakfast Cups. It was my first day back to classes after winter break and my schedule was hectic all day. The only solace I had was knowing that on my hour meal breaks that I already had some delicious food waiting for me at home. Continue reading
Happy Saturday! It was a great day of training and getting back on track with my meals. After one hiccup today while training (eat protein before squatting people—not just a green smoothie), I got back to the grind and successfully rounded out my first week on my new program. Whoop! Plus, after a some inspiring words from the Whole30‘s Stephanie, I managed to control my snacking and cravings more today than I have been. Continue reading
Uh-oh. I have a confession. I have been “healthy” binging. I am not saying that binging is healthy by any means. What I am saying is that I have been consuming a lot of healthy foods (mostly healthy fats) to an excess. Yeah, it’s time to stop that. Continue reading
You have all seen it. You have all drooled over it. Well, today is the day you should actually make it. What am I talking about? It is none other than the famous baked egg in the avocado found all over Pinterest, of course. Do not be intimidated! I have had my fair share of Pinterest fails to be sure, but not this time! This breakfast looks gourmet, yet it is so easy to make–and yummy! Continue reading
Yes. Yes, this is another breakfast post. I make a lot of omelettes, but this is by far one of my best yet– the tomato basil omelette! Oh yum! Last week week when my parents came for a visit, we went to a local diner. The wait was long, but well worth it. Everything was so fresh and tasty to give that homey feel. I ordered an egg white omelette there (surprise), but I got the most unique one on their menu; it had spinach, tomatoes, almonds with a drizzle of vinegar. It was delicious! That is where I got my inspiration for this morning’s creation. Continue reading
Here was my breakfast from the other day. It consisted of 1/3 cup of liquid egg whites, raw almonds and Applesauce Oats.
♦ 1/3 c oats (can be old-fashioned or quick; I use a combo of both)
♦ 1/3 c unsweetened applesauce
♦ cinnamon to taste
Just mix all ingredients together and microwave for 1:30-2 minutes. Top with more cinnamon if desired and enjoy!
Here is my breakfast from the other morning.
As I have probably mentioned before, Spring is my favorite season. I love Easter, getting outdoors, the sunshine, the flowers, etc. This post is just my ode to Spring and what I do to get out and enjoy it. When I moved to Colorado a few years ago, my outlook on Spring shifted slightly–snow?? Really?? Oh well, even random snow storms can’t dull my Spring spirit.
I am so sorry to all of my tremendous followers. I have been no where to be seen on here on Journey for Jessi lately. For those of you following my Instagram, you know I haven’t been completely missing in action. You have seen so many tidbits lately that I owe it to you all (and myself) to fill in the pieces.
