Vacation Mode and Recent Eats

May 5, 2014

Hello, Happy Monday! Yes, it’s happy, because I’m on summer vacation ๐Ÿ˜‰ Heck yes. I leave for Dallas on Wednesday, stay there for a night (I have a job interview), come back home the next day and then fly out to Northern California for a week. I CAN’T WAIT. It will definitely be a busy week!

I have already been in my vacation-mode mindset. This weekend was spent on the beach, relaxing, some workouts, and a lot of good food. Here’s a glimpse into what I’ve been doing and eating lately.

I have been LOVING this dinner lately. I just put a shit-ton of veggies in a pan with coconut or olive oil and sautรฉ them up, add spaghetti squash and crushed tomatoes, then add a protein (turkey or shrimp is the bomb) and there you have it! So delicious.


Literally obsessed with Salmon lately. I’ve been buying it about once a week because it’s been on sale. It’s my favorite.


Lots of coffee. Always.


Runny egg on GF toast.


Baking my paleo pumpkin protein bars so I can have them for the week.


Murdering my legs/glutes which is my favorite. Something different I tried out at the end of my workout – put a barbell on your shoulders and hop on the stair master. DEATH. But in the most awesome way possible. Try it!

Simple meals are my favorite. I’m really easy to please.


Close-up of my favorite starches – sweet potato and butternut squash sautรฉed in coconut oil. Mmmm.


For smoothies, the thicker the better. Who’s with me?! I like to eat it like ice cream ๐Ÿ˜‰ Lots of frozen fruit, spinach, ice, and little liquid is the trick.

Experimenting with a new recipe – my favorite thing to do!


Any guesses on what they are? I’ll share the recipe soon!


Protein pancakes the size of my face.


More salmon. Told ya I’m obsessed.

Absolutely PERFECT day out. I can’t complain about Florida (like I usually do) on days like this.


In the 70’s, breezy, no clouds in the sky.


Music and relaxation. Bliss.


Taking mirror selfies when there is good lighting. Hahahhaa. Please tell me I’m not the only one who does this. #embarrassing



Delicious brunch with the madre. She also got a bloody mary which was amazing – definitely ordering that next time!

Aaaaand that’s my weekend in a nutshell! Now I’m going to be running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off before my trip.


What would you consider a perfect day?

Favorite meal for brunch?

Any fun vacations planned?


    1. Looks like you’re doing all things right. ๐Ÿ™‚ Great post, btw!

      My perfect day would be that everything would go according to schedule, but unfortunately life isn’t that way. ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I’m learning as I go.
      My favorite meal for brunch would be eggs and toast. I know, boring right? But I love it. ๐Ÿ˜€

      As far as I know my family and I might be going to a family camp later this summer, but we’ll see how it goes. Otherwise not much, but I wish there was something going on though.

      Take care!

      1. I love eggs and toast! So not boring ๐Ÿ˜‰ Sounds fun!!

    1. Literally obsessed with salmon – ALWAYS!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      And uh, you need to come to SOCAL… Not NORCAL – and then we can go binge on salmon all day and night! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. YESSS! I want to move to SoCal ๐Ÿ˜‰ I love it there. I vacationed there a few years ago!

    1. Have fun on your trip and good luck with the inteview!! Looove the beach views, so jealous!!
      And the food – YES to cramy and thick smoothies and I am excited for that muffin recipe! Chocolate Almond Protein Muffins is my guess!

      1. NO WAY! I’d take Cali weather over Florida’s any day. Florida is brutally hot, I hate it haha

    1. My favourite day consists of one long hard run, a shower, some yoga, and reading books by the rain.

      I just feel that after exercise my day is complรจte and i can enjoy thรฉ atmosphรจre. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Sounds perfect to me! ๐Ÿ™‚
