No Dough Left Behind

Hi friends Smile How are you? Hope you’re having a great day so far <3 I lovedloved reading your manifesto quotes and tips.

So did Bella Winking smile


(Red is her color)

Things with the 30 day detox have become much easier, especially after the allotted coconut ice cream:

ice cream

(while I didn’t finish the entire thing, I can assure you that no cookie dough ball was left behind)

and the full-fledged reintroduction of FISH.


That salad was absolutely amazing. It started with a snafu this morning when I made a simple salad and grabbed a can of soup to go with. The only soup in the house had potatoes and corn (not part of the plan until the 30 days are over), so I just brought a plain salad and a smoothie to work and figured I’d grab something else on my lunch break.

One of my work friends suggested stopping at Blue Willow, an INCREDIBLE veg-friendly place to get something more exciting to add to my salad.


I transformed it into a legit salad beast by adding blackened salmon and roasted veggies– perfection Smile

Some other recent eats:


+ Perfect Protein Pancakes (made with quinoa flour and topped with raw honey)

I’m heading back to work, teaching tonight and then meeting friends for dinner!

See ya in the morning <3



PS. Check out the b-day cake my bro made in cake’s class:


He’s legit.

Something to talk about: What color do you wear the most? As you can prob guess, pink is #1 but I also wear a lot of grey Smile

    I wear a lot of blue and black. I try to switch it up thought because I find I get into “color” ruts.

  2. Laury @ thefitnessdish on February 4, 2011 at 6:11 pm

    Purely decadent cookie dough is my FAV!!!!

    Ha, I wear pink a lot too :-)like…a lot!!! that and white

    Love the Bella pics!

  3. Ellen @ Undercover Runner Eats on February 4, 2011 at 6:11 pm

    I wear a lot of blue and black I think. Green as well since that’s my school’s color.

  4. Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine on February 4, 2011 at 6:11 pm

    I wear a TON of black. It’s funny because it doesn’t really match my personality, but in the winter when I’m layering I like things that are easy to match!

  5. hippierunner on February 4, 2011 at 6:14 pm

    I wear lots of green, black and gray. At least until summer then I will bring out more colors!

  6. Holly @ Couch Potato Athlete on February 4, 2011 at 6:16 pm

    That cake looks amazing and I could totally go for some ice cream right about now 🙂 Can you taste the coconut?

    I wear lots of black, grey and brown (not together obviously) but I like a bright color now and then — teal, pink or bright red. Depends on my mood!

  7. Carrie on February 4, 2011 at 6:18 pm

    Grey and black, some dark blue. Signature Seattle colors. 🙂

  8. Mandy (theamazonprincess) on February 4, 2011 at 6:18 pm

    I wear a tooon of grey and black…and white. 🙂 But if I wear a color I like it to be red, and sometimes an earthy green.

  9. MMiller on February 4, 2011 at 6:22 pm

    I wear a ton of TEAL! Showing my support for ovarian cancer research! But alas, today was national wear red day!

  10. Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) on February 4, 2011 at 6:24 pm

    Your brother made that cake?! WOW he’s talented and I’d love him to bake cakes for me 🙂

    I wear tons of pink at home and when out, I where lots of white shirts and gray/tan/black/khaki yoga pants or shorts or causal pants. And solids. I am NOT a prints girl usually 🙂

    Bella looks adorable, as usual!

    Enjoy your weekend, Gina!

  11. Diana on February 4, 2011 at 6:28 pm

    Cute and he can bake!? That is legit 😉

    I wish I liked fish more, I can only eat very few ones that don’t have that super fish taste!

  12. Kristina @ Life as Kristina on February 4, 2011 at 6:41 pm

    Gotta love a man who bakes! That cake looks huge and delish!!!!
    Bella looks beautiful in red;)
    Have a great weekend!!!

  13. Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat on February 4, 2011 at 6:42 pm

    WoW! That cake is amazing! Your brother is one talented guy. With the exception of winter (when fashion tends to be full of blacks and grays), I wear a LOT of pink and coral. Lately though, it’s been more about turquoise and dark purple, but I can’t wait till spring is here so I can start wearing some other colours! 🙂

  14. Stephanie on February 4, 2011 at 6:43 pm

    Strangely I wear alot of gray too. Sounds drab, but looks cute!

  15. Alissa on February 4, 2011 at 6:45 pm

    I wear a lot of royal purple and kelly green, not together of course! My major problem is that I only have blue jeans and workout pants. I need to expand and get different pants, same goes with shorts. I think my goal for the summer is to do skirts only, I did it a couple of summers back and really enjoyed it.

  16. Katie~ Run For The Bikini on February 4, 2011 at 6:49 pm

    I love the Pure Decadence Pomegranate Chip Flavor 🙂

    I wear a lot of gray, blue and white. ohh and beige-ish/off white. I love me some hot pink as well 😀

  17. stephanie on February 4, 2011 at 7:25 pm

    I wear a lot of black! I’m such a stereoptypical writer 🙂 But I’ve been buying a lot of light pinks and peaches lately. And yellow, it just makes me happy!

  18. Colleen @ The Lunchbox Diaries on February 4, 2011 at 7:44 pm

    Right now it’s been lots of grey, browns and whites. Come onnn, summer!! 🙂

  19. Rachel on February 4, 2011 at 7:56 pm

    Too legit to quit! Nice cake!

  20. Gina on February 4, 2011 at 7:57 pm

    I always mix up the colors in my wardrobe. I love prints though, like leopard and stripes 🙂

  21. Jodie on February 4, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    I wear a lot of black. Your salad looks delish.

  22. Lana Wilson on February 4, 2011 at 8:10 pm

    I wear a lot of black and maroon. I’m a college student and our color is maroon 🙂 Pink is not far behind.

  23. Courtney @ the granola chronicles on February 4, 2011 at 8:10 pm

    Great cake!
    I wear a lot of brown and also black. Boring – maybe I’ll bust out more colors this spring!?

  24. Ashley on February 4, 2011 at 8:12 pm

  26. Katie on February 4, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    Didn’t that salmon taste amazing?! If I don’t have it for more than a week, I start craving it big time. I love my seafood.

  28. Katelyn @ Chef Katelyn on February 4, 2011 at 8:27 pm

  29. Amanda (Eating Up) on February 4, 2011 at 8:44 pm

    Oh man, I want cake now. I wear a lot of black and tan. I rarely ever wear colors actually!

  30. Amelia on February 4, 2011 at 8:52 pm

    I love the Purely Decadent cookie dough. I actually haven’t had it in quite a while…need to get some soon. I bet you are glad about being able to reintroduce certain foods. Happy Friday 🙂

  31. Errign on February 4, 2011 at 8:55 pm

    I wear a lot of green, brown, and black, because they’re colors that look good with my reddish hair! 🙂

  32. chelsey @ clean eating chelsey on February 4, 2011 at 9:09 pm

  33. Alyssa @ fashion fitness foodie on February 4, 2011 at 9:17 pm

    Happy Friday!! There is no color that I wear more than another…I am a colorful gal 🙂
    I have been eyeing up that ice cream for the past week in the grocery stores. I think I might try and make my own first!

  34. Brittany on February 4, 2011 at 9:18 pm

    Black is my go to color!

  35. Leah on February 4, 2011 at 9:27 pm

    Bella looks so cute! Red is definitely her color. I love me some purple, though.

  36. ashley nicole on February 4, 2011 at 9:37 pm

    i love how the honey on you cakes 😉 looks like a heart…planned? hehe

    & i’m a gray girl too!

  37. Lisa on February 4, 2011 at 9:38 pm

    Mmm, that salad looks yummy! I wear black most often…

  38. Tina on February 4, 2011 at 9:43 pm

    I ALWAYS pick the “good stuff” out of ice creams. Hemp ice cream is my new favorite. Out of curiousity, are you having nut milks during this part of your detox or are you waiting until you add back nuts/seeds?

    • Fitnessista on February 5, 2011 at 12:31 am

      that’s the only type of nut i can have until day 20- nut milk. i’ll take it, though 🙂

  39. Melissa (MelissaLikesToEat) on February 4, 2011 at 9:57 pm

    No doubt your bro is legit. Wow!!

  40. Emily on February 4, 2011 at 9:58 pm

    I wear black, blue and grey. Once in awhile I toss in a bright pink. I’m a creature of habit, I guess 🙂

  41. Namaste Gurl on February 4, 2011 at 11:04 pm

    I just treated (both my taste-buds and wallet) to some vanilla coconut milk ice cream. I’m going ot make a shake with it using avocado, protein powder, banana, ginger and the ice cream. I’m really excited, to say the least. Happy evening!

  42. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on February 4, 2011 at 11:40 pm

    I wear lot of black, brown, off-white and navy… well in the winter. summer its all white baby!

  43. Sana on February 4, 2011 at 11:51 pm

  44. Christin@purplebirdblog on February 5, 2011 at 12:17 am

  45. Michelle @ Turning Over a New Leaf on February 5, 2011 at 12:19 am

    I wear a lot of black, green, and red, but I’m working on incorporating more variety in colors! I’m still not a pink person though…

  46. mi-an dela cruz on February 5, 2011 at 12:20 am

  47. Annette on February 5, 2011 at 12:28 am

    I wear a lot of Pink. Like a LOT. But maybe because my wardrobe is mainly pink?! I also adore purple, yellow, blue, and green. Color- lots of it, baby 🙂 p.s. That cake does look legit-nice work to the brotha.

  48. Amanda on February 5, 2011 at 2:16 am

  49. Gill (snaxandthecity) on February 5, 2011 at 3:22 am

    sad to say, i wear mostly dark colours like black, blue, grey – i need some more colour!

  50. Ahzahdeh on February 5, 2011 at 3:26 am

    Purple! It’s quite a majestic color.
    Plus, it makes my eyes look amazing. Or so I’ve heard. 🙂
