Lately I’ve taken a laid-back approach to life, mostly (and only) because I can. I’m currently in-between projects at work, meaning that I essentially have nothing to do while I wait for my next project. I finally feel like I’m getting some time to myself. With the end of the bustling holidays and people-overload, a little lonesome time at home is exactly what the doctor ordered. Speaking of doctors, I finally kicked the cold/flu out of my system. Yesssss I can breathe again!
Lately, my meals have been simple yet satisfying. After weeks of eating waffles for breakfast, I finally re-introduced steamy oatmeal back into my life. Confession: the only reason I didn’t make a waffle today was because I was all out of flax seed! Blessing in disguise?
My lunches have been a mixture of take-out and homemade. I was overtaken by a rare red meat craving yesterday after my chiropractor appointment, so I made a pitstop to Protein Bar where I picked up this burrito filled with quinoa + cheddar cheese + black beans + organic steak.
I also ordered a raw juice (spinach + kale + pineapple + cilantro + ice) as well as a chicken & spinach pesto quinoa bowl for my parents.
Today’s lunch was a bit different but equally delicious (and tasty!):
(grilled cheese with avocado, mustard, cheese, spinach, and tomatoes on sprouted flax bread)
As usual, dessert has been my favorite part of any and every meal.
This little bad boy looks naughty but is actually sinfully healthy and decadent. Topped with vegan coconut vanilla bean whipped cream!
(see the tiny back vanilla bean specks in the whipped cream?)
I used this amazing (vegan!) recipe - my entire family loved the pie! Confession: I replaced dinner with two slices of this chocolatey heaven last night…oops
Lately, I’ve been taking full advantage of this temporary “free time” to actually visit all the doctors I’ve been avoiding for way too long.
Thanks, dentist! I needed a new toothbrush.
Lately, I’ve savored every single moment with this beautiful bundle of love:
My heart is full but my (minor) cat allergy hates me.
(sunny cat brings sunshine into my life)
Lately, I’ve enjoyed actually being home to receive packages!
(gifts for parents)
(pvBody outfit which I actually wasn’t a fan of this month)
Lately, I’ve had time to update my closet. Out with the old, in with the new!
Victoria’s Secret Semi-Annual Sale (round 2 in less than a week :/ ) + old, fugly, ripped pajamas = a ton of brand new sleepwear for dirt cheap! I never understood the obsession with VS pajamas and clothing in general but now I totally get it. It’s like wearing a cloud on your body!
Lately, I’ve just been plain cozy. Too bad this is short-lived…
What have you been up to lately?
