Happy Birthday, Max and Titan

Tuesday, May 28, 2013

Someone asked me how many bananas I've eaten today. My first thought was, "Heck yes!" I'm glad that people are paying attention. Unfortunately my answer was zero because my bananas aren't ripe yet. This means I need other foods to make up for bananas. Grapes were good, but the oranges were not. Valencias just aren't as good as Navel ones. I'm still in love with this broccoli snack. The corn tortilla chips and salsa were not the best choice ever, but my husband's salsa was about to go bad. Someone had to eat it, and he's on a juice fast. I was the obvious choice. I shared it with my friend, and it was delicious (even though it was ridiculously spicy.. haha). Again, I don't stress about it. I eat food because I'm alive. It tasted good and it wasn't fake. That's how I see it.

  • 5 oranges = 450 calories
  • 4 cups red seedless grapes = 480 calories
  • 25 corn tortilla chips with homemade salsa = 400 calories
  • 1 head of broccoli with red wine vinegar and 1 tbsp grapeseed oil = 180 calories
  • 1 lb strawberries = 145 calories
  • 6 oz blueberries = 90 calories 
  • Baked potato with cheddar cheese = 300 calories
Calories: 2045
Colors: Orange, red, green, white, blue, brown
Water: 155 oz
Exercise: Editing.. gah! Light stretching, work.
Sunshine: 15 minutes
Sleep: 6 hours? I slept poorly last night.

I didn't eat enough yesterday, so I didn't sleep well and had a headache from that. That's why I always recommend keeping track of calories or foods eaten to make sure you're getting enough. It's also why a completely raw diet isn't always feasible for me when I only have 15 minutes to eat on breaks most days. Doesn't matter. I'm very happy with my whole foods diet. More and more people are recognizing it and taking notice. Although I don't care for people telling me I'm "wasting/melting away" or "disappearing" and such. I'm getting healthy. There's a difference.

One last thing. I just want to say happy birthday to my two favorite puppies. My babies are 2 years old today. I don't know where the time goes! Ha. We rescued them from the Arizona Animal Welfare League almost two years ago. We went in there looking for one dog and left with two puppies. It's an interesting story if you'd ever like to hear it. :o) Here are some photos of them throughout the years.

Titan has his tongue sticking out in the background - photo bomb!

This morning. <3



Eat your fruits and veggies, kids.

Hahaha! You guys are so cute putting the birthday crowns on the dogs! Hahaha! Love it!

I love your posts! They really are so wonderful in seeing how this works day in and day out. And that used to bother me too, when people would say I was "wasting away". What they don't realize that is that this diet promotes a healthier later years life. When they've eaten all the processed food and reach their later years, they'll be wasting away painfully, while you might still be active and enjoying life.

We're dorks, but I love them! <3

Thank you!! I try to point out all the stuff that happens so people can understand more and more things about this lifestyle. And you're SO RIGHT!! We'll be still partying into our 80s and they might not be faring as well. I'd rather not take that chance! :o)

Please leave me some comment love. I enjoy every single one of them and will get back to you shortly, especially if you leave your Twitter name. Love and hugs! <3
