Sunday Flowers

Hey guys! Happy Sunday! Hope youโ€™re having a relaxing afternoon ๐Ÿ™‚

This morning, I had protein pancakes on the brain.


Topped with 1/2 bananner and 1 T maple syrup, they were perfect ๐Ÿ˜€

I took out the little ladies:


and went to Publizzle (aka Publix) for some groceries. It was a good hint that I needed to replenish my stash after having blue corn chips, zucchini and protein ice cream for dinner last night.

Itโ€™s been a while since I posted the goods for yaโ€™ll, so here are todayโ€™s foodie purchases:


Veggies, frozen fruit, carrots, eggs, blueberries, strawberries, bananas, basil, garbanzo and kidney beans, Larabars, grape tomatoes, salad, goat gouda, oregano, peaches, apples and apricot jam.

All organic, except for the blueberries and basil.

+ Sunday flowers


Iโ€™ll hit up Wizzle sometime tomorrow for the rest of the veggies and another family-sized thing of salad.

When I got back to the casa, it was snacktime.


Fruit bowl with strawberries, blueberries and the other half of this morningโ€™s banana


Homemade hummus and veg



Time for this girl to do some laundry (blech) and hit up the gym. INDIAN FOOD and a movie tonight ๐Ÿ˜€

Have a fabulous day <3



Todayโ€™s tip: If you find yourself getting stressed or anxious, try one of my favorite mantras. As I inhale, I think โ€œPeaceโ€ and on the exhale, I think โ€œCalmโ€. Peaceโ€ฆ.. calmโ€ฆ. peace โ€ฆ..calm ๐Ÿ˜€ Itโ€™s helped me get through stressful situations (like getting blood taken!) and also helps quiet my mind when Iโ€™m trying to fall asleep. Give it a whirl ๐Ÿ˜‰

Something to do: Meet me back here tomorrow for a protein promo that will ROCK. YOUR. SUN WARRIOR. FACE. OFF ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Jocelyn on June 27, 2010 at 12:57 pm

    Great grocery trip! Lots of good stuff there ๐Ÿ™‚
    Yesterday I went to a local health food shop (it has a smoothie+juice bar in it) and they had sunwarrior! ๐Ÿ™‚ The nearest whole foods is like 1.5 hours away from me, so I really have NEVER seen it around before, so I bought the chocolate flavor! ๐Ÿ™‚ I can’t order from opensky yet (canadian) ๐Ÿ™ Although I’m pretty sure they are trying to start canadian shipments! ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great sunday! Movies+indian food sounds AWESOME!

  11. TV on June 27, 2010 at 2:10 pm

    I know that you sometimes eat veggie burgers in your salads. Can you recommend some good brands?

    The only one Iโ€™ve reviewed on my blog is the Dr. Praegerโ€™s one but I want to try some moreโ€ฆ

    • Fitnessista on June 27, 2010 at 2:18 pm

  15. Hotchick on June 27, 2010 at 2:37 pm

    Those look like Gina foods. Does the pilot say anything when you buy your stuff & then his stuff? I’m just wondering because I’m getting married soon:)

    • Fitnessista on June 27, 2010 at 2:51 pm

      nope, as long as i feed him what he likes, he’s a happy kid ๐Ÿ™‚

  27. Lotus on June 27, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    Hi Gina,

    I follow your blog often. I wanted to know if you eat / drink dairy? If not, how do you get calcium? Do you use goat cheese for calcium?

    Also, do you take suppliments? If so which suppliments do you take?

    I follow the same high raw pescatarian diet as you, but I’m looking to get more calcium and suppliments into my diet. I’m concerned that I am not getting enough nutrients / minerals.

    Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ and I can’t wait for Monday’s promo code!!!

    • Fitnessista on June 27, 2010 at 9:54 pm

      hey girl,
      i get calcium from green veggies (broccoli, spinach and kale), goat dairy and almond milk, which is fortified with calcium. i also take a prenatal vitamin everyday ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. Jenna on June 27, 2010 at 8:20 pm

    Goodness gracious girlfriend! I just made your sloppy joe recipe & it was FANTASTIC. I was kind of nervous about it because the only vegetable I have ever been able to stomach in the recipe it carrot & celery, so I didn’t think I was going to really like it, but I LOVED IT! I heated it up and put it on a whole wheat sandwich thin with a little bit of lettuce & it was grand. ๐Ÿ™‚ haha. your way was more of a lettuce wrap, and I didn’t have any lettuce except for chopped up salad. Oh well! It was wonderful. I’ll definately be having these again. Oh, and I’m excited to make your crepes tomarrow morning! Yayy! Thanks Gina! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Fitnessista on June 27, 2010 at 9:52 pm

      i’m so glad you liked them! thank you for letting me know ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Vickie on June 27, 2010 at 8:23 pm

    I really like your tip about peace and calm…I do the deep breathing thing already but adding the words makes you concentrate more on relaxing, its weird, I like it! Thanks! Oh……..and I did NOT forget about tomorrow’s promo. Yea baby!

  30. Courtney @ Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life on June 27, 2010 at 9:18 pm

    Looking forward to the sun warrior protein secret! ๐Ÿ™‚

  31. LisaG on June 27, 2010 at 9:33 pm

  32. eatdrinkandbemerrynyc on June 27, 2010 at 9:45 pm

  33. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on June 27, 2010 at 10:12 pm

    I read your post right before I got on the plane. I used your tips of saying “peace” and “calm.” I was able to relax and get a good nap in :)Thanks for the tip!

  34. Emily @ Emilyeatsclean on June 27, 2010 at 11:07 pm

    I need to try my hand at homemade hummus!!

  39. Marissa on June 28, 2010 at 9:15 am

    When I went shopping yesterday, I bought so much stuff! I can’t open the fridge now without being attacked by the overfilled produce drawer or one of the currently 3 gallons of milk we have. Hahah.

  40. Emily N on June 28, 2010 at 1:47 pm

    I hit up an Indian buffet and caught a movie Sunday as well:)
