Hi friends! How’s the day going? Yesterday was a bit intense. P and I were both up with stomachaches -I think we overdid it on the Mexican food and sugar avalanche on Liv’s bday-  and the entire house woke up when it was still dark. I had a dentist appointment (always a party), an afternoon appointment, and since we were all totally off on sleep, Liv crashed out for a nap just as P was waking up from hers. Sometimes all ya can do is laugh. We sat on the patio and blew bubbles, while eating strawberry sorbet. Even though I was an exhausted zombie, it was nice. Fingers crossed that everything is a bit more *normal* today.

Finding Our Groove

It finally feels like getting into a routine around here, after what feels like nonstop vacation and traveling. Liv started a new school, and I’ve started to sub fitness classes. I’m teaching two TRX classes and a strength class this week!

Miss P is also enjoying the new digs, and spends most of the day running away from me and laughing. I took my eyes off her for two seconds the other day, which was the perfect amount of time for her to find and puncture a K-Cup and start eating the coffee grounds. Good times, good times.

We went for a walk in our new neighborhood, and I also took a beautiful yoga class at Session. It was the perfect mix of “kick your asana” and “airy yoga fairy” which I love. I’ve also been taking classes at Orangetheory and the new (re)volve cycling studio.

I’ve found my cooking groove, and am excited to share an easy, healthy lunch idea with you.

Healthy Curry Chicken Salad Turmeric Wraps

I imagined this curry salad to be a bit more produce-dense, but alas, we were out of salad greens and our cucumber in the produce drawer was probably from the 1800s. You do what you can, eh?

I ordered these turmeric wraps from Thrive Market (<— referral link) because I’d been wanting to find them for a while. I thought they’d be an excellent wrapper for some curry chicken salad. Funny story: when I first opened them, I thought the paper separators were the wraps. I was like, “ew” until I realized that the real wraps were much thicker and coconut meat-ier.

SO, so good.

Here’s the recipe if you’d like to give it a try!

If you don’t have these turmeric wraps on hand, any of your favorite tortillas, wraps, or leafy greens would work.

  • Total Time: 10


  • -2 cups of cooked, shredded chicken
  • -1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • -1/4 sweet onion, diced
  • -2 heaping tablespoons of mayo (or Greek yogurt if you’re not a mayo fan)
  • -1 heaping tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • -1 teaspoon curry powder
  • -1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • -1/4 teaspoon coriander
  • -1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • -Salt and pepper


  1. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, mayo, bell pepper and onion. Season well with salt and pepper, and stir until thoroughly mixed.
  2. Add in the spices. Mix well.
  3. Taste to adjust seasonings as necessary.


  • I like to make my chicken in the instant pot with salt, pepper, chicken bone broth, and garlic. It cooks beautifully in 15 minutes.


  • Serving Size: 4

Please let me know what you think.

What’s something you HAVE to have on hand at all time? For me, it’s eggs. If we run out of eggs, the day can’t officially begin. Last time you took a yoga class?

I’ll be back soon with some pics from Liv’s bday party. <3 New post on the Family page is up here.

    I can never say no to a good wrap. I’m going to have to look for those on Thrive. I was about to stock up on oats and other random things today so the timing is perfect!

  2. Lauren on January 10, 2017 at 8:20 am

    Oh gosh. The story about Penelope breaking through a K-Cup gave me a good laugh! Haha! I wonder how she liked that taste 🙂 This recipe sounds awesome for grab and go lunches throughout the week – can’t wait to try! <3

    Olive oil. I just love it so much! And I took a yoga class this morning 🙂

    • Fitnessista on January 10, 2017 at 9:09 pm

      looooove olive oil too <3

  4. Cai on January 10, 2017 at 10:14 am

    This looks delicious!! But just as a reminder — it wouldn’t be paleo with mayo or greek yogurt. 🙂 I’m doing the vegetarian Whole30 right now, and definitely want to order some of these wraps.

    Mine is Coffee. I just can’t be without coffee or I won’t be able to start my morning as a normal human being. I’m sure Penelope could feel related, haha JK.

    I’ve never taken a Yoga class before, but I used to of a lot of Yoga With Adriene in YouTube. Glad that you’re enjoying your new neighborhood.

      hahaha she loves her coffee grounds in the am

  6. Julie on January 10, 2017 at 10:38 am

    I’m the same way about eggs. I actually used the last 2 on Sun. & was PANICKED! I never let us run out of eggs! 😀 I see someone mentioned olive oil above… that’s another staple for me, too.

    • Fitnessista on January 10, 2017 at 9:08 pm

      hahah i freak out when i use the last one, too

  7. Crystal on January 10, 2017 at 11:31 am

    Mmm this recipe sounds so good. I’m definitely bookmarking it! I’m like you, if we don’t have eggs, it’s gonna be a bad day.
    I’m so out of practice with yoga, but I’m thinking of going to a class this week. I’m nervous!

    • Fitnessista on January 10, 2017 at 9:07 pm

      please let me know if you give it a try!
      good luck with the yoga this week, too <3

  9. Caitlin on January 10, 2017 at 2:48 pm

    A smoothie in the morning is essential to starting my day! i’ve only been drinking (eating??) them for a couple months, but things don’t seem right without them!

    • Fitnessista on January 10, 2017 at 9:06 pm

      it’s funny how you can get into habits and then it’s like you can’t live without it 🙂

  10. Stephanie B. on January 11, 2017 at 6:52 am

    Haha awwww, P getting into the K-cup and eating coffee grounds…. that made me laugh. So funny. You’ve got a big personality on your hands! She sounds (and looks!) adorable and hilarious.

    • Fitnessista on January 11, 2017 at 9:02 pm

  11. Rose on January 20, 2017 at 11:14 am

  15. Linda on April 16, 2018 at 12:47 pm

    Thanks for introducing me to those coconut wraps. Are they good in Mexican food recipes? What setting do you use on the instant pot to cook the chicken?
