Hacking open a Thai coconut using this awesome Coco Jack contraption. It was super easy to use and much safer than my “one hand behind the back cleaver” method. (I asked the owner if he’d do a giveaway and he said YES so stay tuned!)

PaleOATS using almond meal, egg, egg whites, Stevia, cinnamon and almond milk. I like to top it with blueberries and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.


All the buddhas.

    Almond meal oats sounds yummy. I had a great weekend, full of teaching some Les Mills classes and training clients at Equinox. This weekend I was officially trained how to use the ViPR tool for full-body integrated workouts. Have you heard of it? It’s officially amazing and super hard to use. I can’t wait to start incorporating it into the programs I put together for clients. Happy Sunday!

    yummmm fresh coconut water!

    We went to the Brad Paisley concert last night with a group – super fun! – but you should not stay up until 1am at 36 weeks pregnant haha. Today consisted of family walk, the park (in what felt like slow motion) and a family nap after lunch. Feeling muuuuuuuch better. 🙂

    Those are statues of Hindu gods, primarily Shiva and Ganesh. There isn’t a single Buddha in the photo.

    • Fitnessista on July 14, 2014 at 12:21 am

      you’re right. i should have included a pic with one in there, because i was definitely surrounded! just showing different aspects of the expo

  7. Nour @ GreenShushi on July 13, 2014 at 9:15 pm

    PaleOats sound a little scary to me, but I wouldn’t put it past me to try them!

  11. Giselle on July 14, 2014 at 12:15 am

    Adorable picture of Liv and The Pilot 🙂 Tell me again where the Acai bowls are from. We are heading to SD this weekend! I hear it’s Pride weekend though and pretty crazy. We might run in the pride run on Saturday but not sure yet….

  16. Lucie@FitSwissChick on July 14, 2014 at 12:22 pm

    Love the idea of the PALEOats!! I nee dto try this – I made a similar version with coconut flour, but almond flour is one of my favorites too.

    I was hiking in the Swiss Alps this weekend. One of my favorite places in the world – absolutely gorgeous!!

  17. Livi @ Eat, Pray, Work It Out on July 14, 2014 at 5:20 pm
