Back to reality part 2

Happy hump day everyone!  It is so hard to get back into the groove of things after a vacation.  

We had so much fun in California, but it is nice to be home and back to a routine.  

Here’s a look at some yummy meals/snacks over the past 2 days!

So I had to try the tuna again.  I used a stove top grill pan this time and only grilled it for 2 minutes on each side on high heat and it turned out better!  The marinade for the tuna is minced garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, fresh thyme, salt and pepper) Super easy.  


We had the tuna with my favorite kale salad with a warm cranberry vinaigrette (sauteed onions in olive oil, add salt pepper, handful of dried cranberries, juice and zest of one lemon, a tablespoon of honey and 3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar and 3 chopped garlic cloves) and cilantro brown rice with sauteed mushrooms, onions and garlic.  


A yummy salad from Crisp we had for a quick lunch after our flight.  It is called the Killer Kale. Yum!  It’s kale, red onion, tomato, walnuts and a lemon Tahini dressing.  

Quick, healthy breakfast of oats, flaxseed, cinnamon (cooked with water) topped with half a sliced banana, peanut butter, and drizzled with honey! So tasty and keeps me full for hours!


Leftover kale salad and grilled tuna for lunch today! I love making extras for lunches throughout the week.  


So I know I am in the minority here… but I actually like to cut fruit.  


I know most people cut their own fruit because it is expensive to buy it pre-cut, but I seriously enjoy cutting fruit… even pineapples, melons, and grapefruit.  I know, I am strange, but for some reason, it is therapeutic to me.  Hey, my husband appreciates my weirdness 🙂

And all ready to go for the week!

Simple dinner of leftover kale salad with avocado, black bean veggie burger, and baked sweet potato fries!  So delicious!

And you know a post wouldn’t be complete without a walk with my pups.

And a cuddle with little Riley.

I will be back tomorrow with two of my favorite healthy dessert recipes! I hope you have an amazing Wednesday!
