Bug Bites, Food Bites


August 21, 2012 by Danielle

Happy Tuesday!

As much as I wanted to post yesterday, studying for the GRE took over my soul precedence, so I hope everyone had a great weekend! Aside from being eaten alive by mosquitoes (or spiders-either way it’s not cool considering that San Francisco is freezing during the summer),

Zits would be better. They don’t swell, itch or provoke stares of horror.

I had fun hanging out with my friends Maddie and Liz for a ladies’ night.

This was us in college. Still crazy after all these years.

Our time together consisted of a run (nine miles for me, 11 miles for Liz), an hors d’oeuvres dinner, chatting and sipping on wine. Our night might have even ended something like this (minus the cross dressing).

Don’t ask. Girls just wanna have fun.

Moving on.

This week marks week two of the Clean Eating meal plan. But before we get to week two, let’s talk about week one!

With a week of eats behind, I’m happy to report that I did pretty well-I only messed up and/or repeated a few meals. Best of all, It was really easy to prepare each of the meals for the next day while making dinner.

Clockwise from Left: Salmon Salad, Peanut Butter Quinoa, Strawberries, Oats and Quinoa Porridge, Stirfry, Meatball Casserole, Nectarine Parfait.

Here are my favorite recipes so far (I’ll link the recipes once they post online)-

Breakfast: Strawberry Quinoa and Oatmeal (Suprisingly, TJs does not call for teff, so I substituted in quinoa, which was delicious)

Lunch: Quinoa Confetti

Dinner: Salmon Salad

My least favorite? The meatball casserole.

Although the veggies on top were delicious and looked gorgeous, my balls turned out a little dry (yup, said that). Live and learn.

Now I’m ready for week two! I’m already packed and ready to go for the day.

Packed and ready to go!

    Yum! How do you feel after this week? I know you eat rather healthy so I wonder if you notice a difference. Are these recipes on the latest issue of the magazine? I will have to look.

    And that video rocks. The more I see it the funnier it gets.

  2. […] even though most of my meals look like this, and I do my fair share of sweating, I’m not on my game 100 percent of the time. It’s […]
