happy fourth…

chia breakfast

 

In the spirit of trying to be healthy, I’ve taken to eating chia and fresh fruit for breakfast.  And in the spirit of the fourth, I color coordinated my breakfast.

This time last year I think I already had a cocktail in my hand out on a boat somewhere, so this seems like a step in the right (less fun) direction.

Happy Fourth!

nomnom…Collard Green Wraps

DSC_0010After a week of vacation (no more rum punch ever please) followed by a week of birthday girl celebrations, I need a smidge of a healthy restart.

My body will thank me, actually it’s begging me desperately for it.

So after spending a morning of juicing cucumbers, ginger and lemons to make a detox water (actually juicing only took two minutes, whereas the rest of the morning was spent cleaning my juicer), I started in on lunch.

On Pinterest (honestly where else?) I have been seeing people sub-out carbs for various veggies for clean eating.  Use sweet potatoes instead on buns for sliders (tried that one), bell peppers instead of chips for nachos (no thanks, nachos are literally perfect as is) and collard greens as to make wraps.

So I made some lemon-oregano chicken for The Boyfriend, added some hummus from the greek place around the corner and various chopped veggies.

Perfect way to kick-start a healthy week.  But then I realized it’s already Thursday and I’m meeting a friend for cocktails tonight.  Well, you gotta start somewhere.
