Week 1 of July

My goodness… July! Can y’all believe it? I can’t. Here are some scenes… Yes video… From around the house. I hope to do more of this. Maybe. Haha πŸ™‚

Watermelon… We went to Freshfully Saturday to stock up on some local grassfed goodies and veggies. Typically we do the Tuscaloosa markets but throw in a monthly run to Freshfully to work on our freezer space πŸ™‚ And why not grab a watermelon?? And scored some local organic purple and red potatoes…

And a homemade vanilla marshmallow dipped in dark chocolate… Delicious treat- can’t wait to attempt my own!

Yes, finally, stained the front porch swing! After enjoying our watermelon on the front porch πŸ˜‰

“Grace” Week Menu

Well as you can tell we didn’t eat last week… Haha kidding πŸ˜‰ It was a “grace” week for me… With it being my first week at my new job and house stuff I thought I would allow myself to just plan as we went. And it went fine! Here’s some glances at the food from last week.
We had shredded beef salad.
Chunky monkey muffins made another appearance for breakfast.
Baba Ghanoush Gratin from Primal Cravings.
Our (current) go-to cookbook. We have enjoyed trying numerous recipes from the Health Bent book. I think we are more comfortable with making substitutions now as opposed to a year ago… Or even 6 months ago! πŸ˜‰
That’s my favorite post WOD snack… Or before bed… Or after work. Haha!
Speaking of WODs… I’ve been enjoying outdoor WODs! David makes some tough ones but I enjoy it. Although one morning I did an inside WOD (100 burpees). That’s a tough one… Especially half asleep lol!
Back to food… Tuna salad.
JalapeΓ±o-bacon eggs with tomatoes and peaches.
Chicken empanadas from Primal Cravings… Rocked! So good!
Roasted veggie and beef salad with the last two plums πŸ™‚
And ended the weekend with a delicious brunch… From Primal Cravings πŸ™‚

So we ate… And we ate so good! It can happen without planning a week’s worth but it sure makes it easier when it’s planned out πŸ™‚

I’ll be back soon with a menu… First one for July!
