The Week In Fitness And Food

Annnddd let’s return to regularly scheduled programming. Well, I don’t know that any posts have been “regular” around here lately but today we’ll get back to food and fitness which I guess is the “heart” of the blog. Although lately I feel it’s kind of been a steady rotation of yoga, what I’m eating, workout, recipe and life discussion posts.

This was my favorite breakfast of the week. Fage strawberry with banana, mango, strawberry, granola and coconut peanut butter. Muy tropical.

Egg scramble lunch with two eggs, white beans, spinach, basil, tomatoes and goat gouda.

Going away party for some friends on Wednesday where I made my dinner out of wine, cheese, meats and crackers and cheesy potato flat bread…AKA the best kind of dinner there is.

Workouts this week ended up being THREE CrossFit WODs (woo!), three hot yoga practices, one run and one walk. It felt like a nice balance of strength and stretch. And for the record…my butt was sore for three days after those pistols on Tuesday.

This dinner creation was so delicious. I seasoned chicken breasts with Jane’s Crazy Mixed Up Basil and Salt seasonings and then finished it in the oven with some Trader Joe’s Island Soyaki Sauce. I sauteed eggplant, bok choy and mushrooms with vegetable broth and the Island Soyaki Sauce. The eggplant and bok choy really soaked up all the flavor of the broth and sauce and went so well with the chicken. I will definitely be recreating this dish, maybe with fish.

Breakfast at my desk this morning was overnight oats and coffee. I’ve been off overnight oats lately and these didn’t do much to change my mind on that.


And one salad featuring more toppings than greens. So good! My favorite salad toppings lately have been beets, artichokes, glazed pecans and feta. I’m usually more of a goat cheese girl but the salty feta has been good with the sweet beets and nuts.

What are your favorite salad toppings?

    I have way too many favorite salad toppings to name, but dried cranberries, black olives, and blue cheese are definitely in the running!

    I swear we live parallel food lives. All except for the goat cheese. I can thank my mom for making me a ‘goat cheese hater’.

    Always enjoy reading your blog! Have a fab weekend!

    Lately my favorite salad toppings have consisted of fruit! I’ve been loving greens with sliced strawberries, sliced kiwi, blueberries, chopped walnuts, barley, and goat cheese. Sometimes with some shredded coconut on top. It’s the perfect spring salad!

    Mmm that tropical breakfast looks divine! My recent salad toppings have been beets, feta, tempeh, and many various veggies!

    Jen, your random Spanish words in your posts lately just made me laugh a little at my desk. 🙂 It’s been kind of a blaw Monday and just catching up on your blog posts seemed to make my afternoon a bit better. Glad your received such awesome Honda care this weekend.
