So sleepy. Must nap. Too hungry. Must eat. Easiest thing in my fridge, right here.  Eggs, salsa, cucumber and cherries.  I’m so pumped to sleep tonight 😴

Tomorrow is my last Tuesday morning class (spin class; if you’re new to my insta, I’m a spin instructor!! ), and I’m going to miss my Tuesday AM family oh so much 😵

So, I crafted them a favourite recipe and modified it a little so they can chow down after class tomorrow morning and not feel like they are eating a ton of sugar right after class.  😎

Nutty Cacao Bites -  stay tuned for the recipe! I hope to have my brand new website up and running this week, and I’ll be sure to put these on there! 

Also…  No, these are not #whole30… #sorrynotsorry

Getting spoiled at home with the grill master Dad and veggie master mom: butterfly chops, grilled veggies with avo oil, garlic, salt and pepper, and sweet potato. So yum. So spoiled.

And just like that, I broke my #Whole15 mini reset two days early for my favourite in season veggie (read: grain).  I know corn is a grain, but I’m home for the weekend and mom and dad cooked the most delicious dinner.  Beef tenderloin on the grill with corn on the cob.  It was perfect. I know corn is a grain, but it doesn’t affect me, so there are moments (like these when I’m home visiting family) that I eat these kind of seasonal treats.

Didn’t feel much like cooking tonight, but I also was certain my stomach could take any more greens…  But I chanced it with a little kale! 

Garlic and Dill Fish Salad in Pepper Boats! I mixed 1 can of tuna and 1 can of sardines with my fave salad dressing (Paleo mayo mixed with red wine vinegar, salt, pepper and garlic), a couple garlic scapes, dill, and pepper. Laid a bit of kale inside the boats and put the fish salad inside! Perfect solution for a quick summer meal!

Dear @popular_paleo -  shit just got real in my whole cutting coffee adventure.  The girl even sold me on the wisk. 

Not #AIP yet, but a step in the right direction.  Thanks for your awesome article.  I needed it after a rough IBS day yesterday

A much needed peppermint tea.  Day 10 of my #Whole15 mini reset and I cannot believe how terrible I’m feeling today.  Completely bloated, extremely painful digestive pains (haven’t had ones like these since before being diagnosed with IBS back in university) and my stomach is rock hard.  I have completely stuck to the #Whole30 template, so I can only attribute this to a couple things:

We had a lunch pot luck at work and I was really careful about what I ate.  So I stuck to raw veggies…  But I also had a lot of greens in that AM (too many to process maybe?) or…  I had very little sleep last night after a very active day AND a very active day again today.  So I’m wondering if that lack of sleep + insane activity was just too much.  

Also, as much as I’d hate to admit it, I think I’m going to have to cut coffee for right now.   Its definitely not easy on my system, but when I start to stress it like this with busy days, I really notice the effect coffee has on my digestion. 

Anyway…  I’ll stop rambling…  But how frustrating!! I’ve completed 3 Whole30s now and this is the first time this has happened. 

How is everyone else doing on their #Whole30 or mini reset?

Quick snap of deliciousness! Another crazy Tuesday…  Short break between  spin class number two of the day and then heading right to baseball.  My man was grilling this awesome pork chop when I got home.  So lucky! 


Paired with half a sweet potato topped with almond butter and broccoli + cauliflower salad (recipe derived from Paleo Comfort Foods) @paleocomfort Pork chop rub from Robb Wolf’s website. 


Also made this salad for potluck today at work and it was a hit! Yay!
