Like it a lox

Smoked salmon is back in my life in a big way….


So salty and glorious.

Before coming downstairs to make breakfast, I had to convince the lazy girls it was time to start the day.

The one on the left still has night and day in reverse.. especially after last night. Party animal 🙂

Some more recent eats:

My all-time favorite Trader Joe’s salad, the Super Spinach


Spinach, pumpkin seeds, cranberries, quinoa, carrots, tomatoes, garbanzo beans, edamame, miso dressing…


and this picture is kinda gross-looking, but the combo is amazing:

sweet potato

This morning, we’re going to take a walk –Bell needs to get out of the house, she was doing sprints last night- and later today, I’m going into work for an hour Tabata training. I’m really excited to see my work friends again, and check out the new class format.

Have a great day and I’ll be back later with a Family post!



Something to think:

    I was thinking that my sweet potato could have used some almond butter tonight, yum! And I LOVE that quote.

    Lots of healthy stuff! The Super Spinach Salad is my favorite from Trader Joe’s, too. And smoked salmon’s great stuff, too, I still have a couple of boxes of it in the cupboard. Enjoy your sweet little one, in the future you’ll love having that photo where she’s hardly bigger than your little poodle.
