The Calm and the Storm

Hi friends <3 Hope you’re having a relaxing Saturday.


I started my morning off with some tasty brown rice cakes:


They were topped with a spread made of heated Sun Warrior with a little almond milk to thin it out, a tablespoon-ish of cashew butter, cinnamon and a chunk of chocolate, topped with cacao nibs

cakes (2)

After b-fast, I took the puppers for a walk and then went to a beautiful yoga class.


As we were backbending and going through a beautiful series, tragedy was occurring down the street. I’m sure many of you have heard about the devastating event in Tucson– my thoughts and prayers are with the families of those who were affected. It’s a very sad day today <3


Some eats:

New Blueberry Muffin Larabar (from my friends at Larabar- it’s my new favorite flavor)


Lunch today was haphazard- I forgot to pack it, so I munched a little sumthin’ when I got home.


(Brown rice tortilla with organic deli chicken, mustard, goat cream cheese, Garlic Gold and artichoke hearts)

+ carrots


Tonight I’ll probably go to a friend’s birthday dinner and then lay low with the fam <3

Have a lovely night and I’ll see ya in the morning.

    I actually had to google the incident to find out what you were talking about. Being a student with no tv, I can sometimes feel like I’m in a bubble!

    What a terrible tragedy though. All of those affected will be in my thoughts! <3

    Blueberry Muffin Larabar!? I can’t wait! And I haven’t heard anything about Tuscon? I’ll have to look it up.

    Hi Gina!

    I had a question about how you buy your artichoke hearts? Do you buy raw and cook them yourself or do you buy them canned? I bought some canned the other day to use in a wrap similar to yours and they didn’t taste so great:( If you buy them canned, what brand do you think is best? Thanks so much for your posts. I’m loving your blog and I’m happy to see you’re OK after the events in Tucson. Take care!
