Whole 30 Cobb Salad

Recently, I have been enjoying a homemade Cobb Salad during my lunch break. One of my favorite perks of working from home is having the ability to make my lunch and use my kitchen during my lunch break. I love being in the kitchen. The best part (in my opinion) about this lunch is the whole 30 approved Primal Kitchen Ranch Dressing. I got mine at Erewhon Calabasas but if you don’t have an Erewhon nearby it’s also at Whole Foods. Whole 30 Cobb Salad Ingredients: Living Lettuce (Or any type of greens) Purple onion Tomato Yellow bell pepper Bacon Shredded chicken or sliced turkey 2 hard boiled eggs Avocado oil Avocado Ranch by Primal Kitchen You can adjust your serving size to whatever you need but I usually like to fill a plate with greens and then use kitchen shears to cut them up so I can have lots and lots of them.

Vanilla Protein Smoothie

This morning, after my workout and catching up with clients, I decided to go ahead and run a few errands. Usually, I’ll make a veggie omelette each morning BUT today I needed something quick to get out the door. My Vanilla Protein Smoothie was the perfect option. VANILLA PROTEIN SMOOTHIE Recipe: 1 cup frozen spinach (I get a bag at Costco and keep it in my freezer.) 1 banana 1 scoop vanilla protein powder from Traders Joe’s 1 tablespoon almond butter 3 ice cubes Blend and enjoy! Preferably on the beach and not in your car running errands. 🙂

Easter Weekend 2017

It’s the morning after Easter! I hope you and your families had an amazing weekend.  We were up early and headed to Santa Monica where we attend Vintage Church LA. To our family, Easter is a day of celebration but something that we focus on every day. The resurrection and new life we find in Jesus Christ! He is risen! And can I just say that all of the volunteers and staff at our church truly outdid themselves this year. It was gorgeous! Their main decoration piece was flowers… and you know how I love flowers.  Yesterday afternoon we had joined friends in Westlake at Luke’s bosses house. It was so fun for me to get to know everyone he’s working with and their families. We are kind of Pepperdine obsessed! We wrapped up the day with a beach walk with our dear friends the McCollum’s. Soaking in all the time we can with friends who are graduating and moving in May.
