rainy day = green juice!

Yesterday was a rainy lazy day!
I haven't had one of those since......I can't even think of one!
My Wednesdays off have become my time to nurture and care for myself.
I practice yoga in the morning, clean, spend lots of time in the kitchen, and are usually very productive.
This week I took a different approach.
Yoga, green juice, chill time with Miles!!


celery
kale
cucumber
lemon
ginger

I can't find organic apples anywhere!!

I guess that's what happens when you eat somewhat seasonally!










Love lazy daze!!

Miles was in heaven and so was I.

Have a great one.

Breakfast of Champions.....for real!

It is rare that I have the foresight or energy to fix a proper breakfast. I love soaked nuts and seeds, groats and fruit. It may not be the best "food combining" but it makes up for it in excellent nutrients and flavor!

I had an abundance of fruit that needed to be eaten so I made a fruit salad.
Mangoes from my parents neighbors, organic and free!!, black plums, pluots, and bananas.
