Cookie in the Car

Morning!! Happy INDIAN FOOD WEDNESDAY :)  (Even though I haven’t been celebrating lately! Anyone know of an awesome Indian restaurant in Orlando?)

Dance Trance last night was amazing! For those of you who are curious about DT, here’s *the post* where I explain the deets. The instructors rock it out, and my cousin went with me, which made it extra fun 😉

As glorious as DT was, the best part was that dinner was waiting for us when we got home.


Butternut squash lasagna- I use *this recipe* and Gina-fy it by using brown rice noodles and creamy goat cheese and goat gouda in lieu of the other cheeses


Along with roasted eggplant and tamaters 😀

Salad with pear, pecans and homemade balsamic (1/2 C balsamic, 1/3 C olive oil, pinch of Stevia, T of dijon, 1 clove of garlic, oregano, rosemary, sea salt and pepper)


+ vinoooooooooo


I had another glass for antioxidant purposes 😉

After creating a beautiful lasagna food baby, I settled on the floor with Vies and chatted with my aunt until bedtime. It was lovely <3

This morning, I snacked an organic plum:


and made a breakfast cookie to wait in the car for post-yoga consumption.
bfast cookie

-1/2 C multigrain oats (switching it up a little)

-1 hefty T almond butter

-1/2 scoop Sun Warrior

-1/2 banana

-lots of cinnamon, cacao nibs and goji berries

-almond milk

I’m off to yoga my face off and then come back to run errands before work.

See ya later today with a NEW full body circuit workout!



Something to talk about: There’s definitely a pumpkin surplus in this house since someone got way too excited when they saw Libby’s on the shelf 😉 I LOVE pumpkin b-fast cookies, sauces, smoothies and oats, but what’s your favorite use for canned pumpkin? I’d love some new ideas!

    I made the pumpkin cornbread that Heather was loving. It was delish. When I was in Orlando last year for a conference I ate at an excellent Indian Veg place called the Woodlands. It is at 6040 South Orange Blossom Trail
    Orlando, Florida 32809 (407) 854-3330. If you haven’t tried it yet, give it a chance. I think you’ll like.

    Roast pumpkin pizza!

    With rosemary, goats cheese and roast capsicum (plus any other veggies – as long as pumpkin is the predominant one!)

    That lasagna is definitely going on my to-make list! I can’t get enough of squash lately! 😀

    I’ve only ever had pumpkin in sweet breakfasts/baked goods, but lately I’ve been seeing a lot of savory pumpkin pastas that look delicious!

    Aashirwad is my favorite Indian restaurant in Orlando – it’s near Wet n Wild and International Drive. Their lunch buffet is epic, best malai kofta I’ve ever had 🙂

    Everytime I read your blog I suddenly crave masala.
