Another day, another 50 cents…

Oh that’s right, I don’t even make that much in my new career.  haha

I did however, get to go to my favorite class all week at the gym…boot camp!  I never got to do this class when I was working, because it is at 9:00 am.  It is by far my favorite workouts, combining drills of high intensity cardio, with bands and weights for get some muscle conditioning.  The hour flies by, and I leave a sweaty mess!  Tomorrow will surely be a rest day after 2 days in a row of higher intensity exercise. 

After class, Ava and I did some shopping, Babies R Us – style.  While it's not my favorite store (customer service has always been subpar) it certainly is convenient to get clothes, diapers, and sippy cups all in one place. 

I came home to make a little lunch for the hubby and I.  We are pretty much do sandwiches or salads most days for lunch.  Today I had my favorite entree salad evah!  This is definately a regular for me.


Leftover kale salad, sugar snap peas, jicama, dulse, a little sliced onion, kelp noodles, and a crumbled chickpea patty, all over a bed of spinach.  Talk about getting your greens in!  But, the secret ingredient is really this…


This salad dressing rocks!  The only place I can find it is Whole Foods.  Simple ingredients, and only 14 calories per tablespoon.  I would tell that I could drink it – seriously, it’s that good.  I have been known to stick my finger in the bottle to get every last drop.


Of course, I had to keep Ava occupied while I built and ate this salad…

Obviously, at this point, I started gulping down – she had reached her limit of solo play time.


What is your typical weekday lunch?


  1. She is so cute! I really don't have a favorite lunch, I like to change it up but I do love soup.

  2. Hi! I just saw you enter my contest for the A Grass and said you're from Phoenix...girl, I live in Desert Ridge! I know this is random but if you'd ever like to meet for coffee...holler! My daughter will be 3 in Feb. I know how it is with a little one, new motherhood, etc....sometimes it's nice to have some adult chat, even if it's between nursing and diaper changing :)


  3. Great recipes, and your baby is ADORABLE!! :)
