I took a week off of working out after 12 intense weeks, and today was my first day back at it. I felt amazing! I hit PR’s on my chin ups, bench press, and dead lift. My first time ever being able to do 3 chin ups, and I was finally able to bench 100lb. The craziest was my dead lift..this girl lifted 260lb! I am so stoked and so excited to watch my body and strength transform even more…all fueled by plants💪

Dinner was another random creation that turned out really, really good. Brown rice, spicy sriracha baked #tofu, #guacamole with mango (my fav), raw #zucchini noodles, carrot ribbons, and mushrooms garnished with cilantro and green onions. It was such a great mixture of cooked and raw foods, and now my belly is seriously and delightfully full 😋

Ribboned Carrot & Beet Asian Salad

Ribboned Carrot & Beet Asian Salad

[donotprint]Hello friends!!!

Stepping away from technology is a revelation, every single time. Not only I was away from blogging, but all social media accounts. And it has been glorious!

Its essential to go offline every now and then. This “noise” that is pretty essential in my life, but a break is always necessary. Not feeling a tinge of guilt and you shouldn’t too. But thank you so much f0r…

Cut the grass and then made this huge #zoodle salad to eat out on the deck. I mowed the lawn in bare feet and now my feet are green 😂. Absolutely loving the weather today

My #salad had #zucchini noodles, carrot ribbons, shaved #asparagus, sweet corn, green onions, #spinach and #hemp seeds tossed in an #avocado herb dressing and with jalapeño. I had the dressing left over from yesterday so this only took about 15 minutes to put together, and it tasted 👌👌
