Death of Me

Wednesdays are going to be the death of me! Let’s rewind:


I’ve been staring at this smoothie mix since I got home from the Healthy Living Summit and this morning I decided today was the day to try it.


In the blender I added:

  • A serving of Vega Cho-a-Lot Smoothie mix
  • A handful of frozen raspberries
  • A glug of soy milk
  • A tad bit of plain yogurt

And wa-la:


It tasted like a cold glass of thick pudding. It was perfect!

Thanks again Heather for trading me the Tropical Tango for the Choc-o-lat! I owe you big time!

Topped with some oatmeal.


In between classes I snacked on some cashews.


After class Matt, his sister Michelle, and I headed to Panchero’s for lunch. I brought my SLR but the battery wasn’t fully charged so I’m sans lunch photo.

Imagine a salad with:

  • Lettuce
  • Black Beans
  • Grilled Veggies
  • Guac
  • Corn Salsa
  • Jalapenos
  • Medium Salsa

All nestled on top of a homemade tortilla. Delicious!


While meal planning on Sunday Matt & I dreamt up the idea of Pulled Pork Nachos and they lived up to their name!



Matt threw the pork into the crock-pot earlier today with some seasonings and when I came home I got to work on assembling the masterpiece.


We topped the tortilla chips with the pork, some queso fresco cheese, red onions, zucchini, and of course fresh salsa & plain yogurt.


After dinner I rushed off to a swim coaches meeting – I’m so excited to get to coach more this Fall – and now I’m ready to kick back and eat some ice cream!

    I want to try chia seeds sooo bad, but can never justify buying them on a student’s budget. I want to use them as a topping on my yogurt instead of flax!

    Ooooh I think those chia seeds would go great on a salad, better than sunflower seeds I hope! Esp with some nice raspberry vinagrette.

    Hi Kate! I have been longing to try chia seeds but can’t quite get myself to justify the splurge. I think the first thing I’d do is make some homemade granola incorporating the chia seeds and put it in little jars for my friends 🙂
