First Week of The Fresh Start

You’ll have to forgive me for this weird week of posting. I know I am ridiculously behind. I was posting about Sunday on Thursday and, other than on Monday, haven’t posted anything up-to-date all week.

If that makes any sense.

Anyway, after a weekend full of events and a week at a new job, I’ve been trying to find a new rhythm in blogging. Please consider this my “catch-up” post.

Fortunately, a lot of my food has been pretty similar. Let’s do this, yo.


Breakfast and Lunch were already posted.


Tofu stir fry.

Crispy tofu stir-fry (done Emily’s way) with frozen TJ’s veggies and Pineapple Bulgogi Sauce (a gift from Lynn!).

I even pressed the tofu and everything! Be impressed. This was a big “first” for me.

I mean, I’m impressed.


Workout: Physical Therapy. My PT said (at my complaining about not working out), “You want a workout? I’ll give you a workout.” She wasn’t freaking kidding. I haven’t been that sore (all I have to say is PLANKS) in ages.


Carob Overnight Oats in a Jar

It was good, but not as good as I’d anticipated.

Into the mix went:

  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 1/8 cup nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbs carob powder
  • cinnamon

On top:

  • blackberries
  • strawberries
  • the peanut butter in the jar


Leftovers Salad

Into the mix went:


I went to Lauren’s house. We had a bottle of wine a grains and veggie salad.

Into the mix went:

  • TJ’s Harvest Grains. I don’t know how much. That was Lauren’s job.
  • Low sodium Chicken Broth. Same deal, but 2x as much as the grains
  • 1/2 red pepper, chopped
  • 2 handfuls fresh baby spinach
  • 1/2 zucchini, diced
  • 1/2 yellow squash, diced
  • 1 cup mushrooms, chopped
  • orange-infused olive oil (probably about 1/2 tbs)
  • salt, garlic salt & pepper to taste
  • topped with avocado

So these…

Became this:

It was pretty fantastic.


No workout.


Yogurt parfait in a jar.

Into the mix went:

  • Chobani 0% Vanilla
  • Go Lean Crunch! Honey Almond Flax
  • strawberries
  • blueberries
  • blackberries
  • the peanut butter in the jar, of course
  • happiness


Salad with hummustard tuna salad.

Into the mix went:

  • bed of greens
  • tuna mixed with 1 tbs hummus, 1 1/2 (ish) tsp yellow mustard (no sugar added)
  • baby heirloom tomatoes
  • cucumber

I didn’t end up using the dressing – didn’t need it!


Scrambled eggs with cheddar cheese (and salt, pepper, and a little bit of parmesan) with a piece of Dakota spread with Earth Balance.  Also known as perfection.


Workout: Physical Therapy


Overnight oats in a jar.

It’s lucky for me that Mark goes through so much peanut butter.

Into the mix went:

  • 1/3 cup oats
  • Chobani Champions Very Berry (yum!)
  • 1/8 cup Go Lean Crunch! Honey Almond Flax

On top:

  • strawberries
  • blueberries
  • blackberries



Leftover Crispy Tofu Stir Fry from Monday night.

Pretty self-explanatory!

Except that, per Mark’s suggestion, I added Thai Peanut sauce. It was a good move.


Same exact eggs & toast as the night before.

Totally phoned in because I went out for St. Patty’s day drinks with my friend Christine.

In the spirit of the holiday, I got a Guinness. My first one.

It just just okay.


Workout: 1 hour on the elliptical, no resistance… and no pain!


Yogurt bowl.

Into the mix went:

  • 2% Pineapple Chobani
  • Go Lean Crunch! Honey Almond Flax
  • blueberries
  • blackberries
  • strawberries
  • coconut butter, warmed – which was good, but next time I’d just do crumbles, instead


Went out to All About The Bread in Hollywood with my co-workers.

I got the Burrata Sandwich.

It was pretty great, but I could only eat half.

And yes, it really was all about the bread.

Whew! That post was EPIC!

Have a good weekend, friends!

  4. Man, I thought I went through PB quickly! My mom is the same as your roommate. Ever since she discovered almond butter, she has been flying through it at warp speed. It’s actually kind of impressive.
