The Day in Food 12/29/14


Happy Monday to you. Here’s what I ate today in case you are just dying to know…


Savory salt & pepper French toast with cucumber salad. I saw The New York Times (I think) post something about how French toast doesn’t always have to be sweet and I was like: YOU’RE RIGHT, NYT. YOU’RE ALWAYS RIGHT.

Snack 1

Green smoothie with 1 frozen banana, 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, frozen spinach, cinnamon, vanilla extract and a scoop of protein powder.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset


Basil lentils over ricotta toast. HOLY SHIT.


Snack 2

Almond milk latte while I picked up my shiny new (but actually totally old and used) table from Salvation Army.


Coconut fried chickpeas with quinoa and a salad of cucumber, fennel and celery… ON MY NEW TABLE.



Greek yogurt with raspberries and blackberries.


The day after Christmas I was feeling PMS bloat, post-holiday apple pie coma and a burning desire to spend some newly acquired cash so I bought Kayla Itsines‘ workout plan and nutrition guide. All of this food is more or less from that.


  1. Ok, that french toast idea is genius! I can’t believe I haven’t thought about using frozen spinach for a green smoothie. Duh! No worrying about fresh going bad before I can use it up. It’s a whole new world!

    Instagram kept showing me bodies by Kayla Itsines… What do you think of her guide that you’ve just acquired?

      Same! I found her on Instagram too. I’m only three days in so I don’t think I can really assess yet but… I love it. The workouts are straight to the point (tough and effective but just 28 minutes) and the food is SO DAMN GOOD. I got the vegetarian guide and was a little irritated to see it includes fish but I just make swaps and it’s fine. I find that most workout nutrition plans are nothing but grilled chicken (subbed with tofu in vegetarian guides) and non-starchy vegetables. It’s so lame. Kayla’s menu is really diverse, includes bread (praise Jesus) and is easy to follow. I like it a lot so far.

        Excellent! Thanks for the review! You done with CF or your other morning workouts?

        Yeah, Crossfit was only for November (free trial) and I’m still paying for my morning bootcamp but not going (whoops).
