Good Eats

Hi guys! Hope you're week is off to a good start. Its been 90 degrees here in Chicago, and this kind of heat makes me want to do absolutely nothing. Like....grocery shopping. My fridge was bare on Friday, and we were going to visit my parents for the weekend so I didn't bother to restock! My mom is so sweet. She makes sure she has plenty of produce for me when I stay and frozen bananas for green smoothies. She jumped on the GS wagon! Yay! I'm so proud of her. She's made a lot of health changes this past year and looks better than ever.

Back home, I finally dragged myself out of the air conditioning to Trader Joe's. Well, actually going there anytime for me is like a mini vacation so I can't really complain.

Kombucha! Go buy this now. They started carrying them at my local store, Jewel. I'm addicted. It's like pop to me.

Found this little treasure at Whole Foods. I'm not a huge fan of protein/meal replacement bars but I've been wanting to try this for awhile.


Dates, hemp protein, organic sprouted whole flax seeds, almond butter, agave nectar, almonds, coconut, cocoa powder, sesame seeds, raisins, organic sprouted mung beans, organic wheat grass, natural chocolate flavor, lemon juice, organic dulse.

Tonight for dinner I really wanted to create something spectacular. I was think quinoa, stir fried veggies, and legumes with a homemade asian dressing. I had high expectations but when I came home all I really wanted was just something fresh and easy. So I created a salad big enough for 4 but ate the whole thing myself. I threw in the mix a romaine head, tomatoes, radishes, cucumber, strawberries, pumpkin seeds, and hummus with honey dijon dressing.

Tonight I had a couple friends over for the Biggest Loser finale! Yay for Michael winning!! I made 'Chewy Chocolate Freezer Fudge' taken from Sarma's Raw Food Real World. Very few ingredients and took only 5 minutes to make. The girls said it was so creamy and couldn't believe there was no dairy in it.

We also snacked on delicious cherries!

And Mary's crack. You can never go wrong with these.



  1. Kathleen!! That heaping salad and fudge look amazing!
