Bake and Shake

Heyyyy 😀 How was your Indian Food Wednesday? Hope it was lovely 🙂 There’s some dal with my name on it.

So glad you enjoyed Cassey’s Focus On post! I loved reading it, too <3

Some more Focus On posts:

Bikram Yoga



Hoop Dancing


Today was supposed to be my long day at work, but it ended up being a shorty. This is a good thing since I have extra time to prepare for a new class I’m teaching tomorrow, and also because I had time to bake that banana bread I’ve been thinking about 😉

banana bread

It’s in the oven now and our house smells like a cinnamon foodgasm.

Vegan, gluten-free and I’ll have the recipe up in the am [fingers crossed it’s a success!] 😀

Some eats:


Green-a-colada smoothie <—a classic fave

{See the extra box that appeared in the background? Our TV is here from Valdosta! Our friends shipped it for us, but we’re waiting to get into the new house to set it up}

Lots of organic fruit + half a gluten-free crunchy bar from the farmer’s market


Egg-rito on a teff tortilla, with hot sauce and spinach, almond milk cafe au lait


Protein pudding (sheep’s milk yogurt + Sun Warrior) and a bell pepper 🙂


Tonight’s a TurboFire night for me. First I bake, then I shake 🙂

See ya in the morning <3




[Last night’s sunset. Swoon]

Head’s up!!! OpenSky promo tomorrow for an amazing product… including the new styles! (and a NEW color!)

I’ll give ya a hint…


Zumba song of the day: “Amor Gitano” Alejandro Fernandez & Beyonce (AMAZING)

    I made banana bread tonight too…not vegan, but lower fat and whole grain! and, i also added a dash of ground cardamom with my cinnamon because I was feeling sassy…it was definitely a good move.

    • Fitnessista on July 13, 2011 at 9:24 pm

      oh yum! i love cardamom 🙂

  8. alex on July 13, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    How do you make the protein pudding? Is it just the yogurt and sun warrior added together and that’s it?

    I love that bag so much, it’s beautiful! I really want one, but you can’t order on Opensky from England can you? 🙁 If you can I will definitely get one! Your eats look delicious, and the suset incredible…breathtaking in fact! Look forward to hearing all about your banana bake! Sounds scrumptious 🙂 xyx

  25. Ash @ Good Taste Healthy Me on July 14, 2011 at 9:33 am

    I wanted to let you know that I did that ab workout the other day that you posted on Monday. Holy moly my abs were hurting the next day and my back from those sit-ups. It was a good hurt though. 😉

    I love your coffee mug! Is it one you can write on with chalk/marker? A student of mine gave me one of those as a gift this year. So fun!

  30. Sandy on July 14, 2011 at 5:17 pm

    I wanted to suggest one more raw vegan snack that is perfect for on the go.
    They’re Gudernoobs and they’re made by WooHoo Foods. I find them at our local Whole Foods store. They’re only 30 calories each and I know you’d love them!

  31. Ali @ urbanfruitbat on July 15, 2011 at 12:38 am
