Foodie Friday {snapshots of eating beautiful}

1/2 avococado. organic cayenne pepper. 2 organic free range eggs. organic arugala. organic mushrooms. organic garlic. fresh basil.
A typical meal for me includes lots of veggies, usually some sort of green, sometimes humus or an egg or two.  Since I always limit carb intake, I tend to eat this way at breakfast as well.
At dinner, I often include a bit of quinoa, or farro.  Once a week, I treat myself to a serving of Jovial pasta (organic 100% brown rice) at dinner time.  No matter what the occasion or time of day, it is always an abundance of fresh vegetables, lots of vibrant colors... never dairy, refined carbs, or any processed food.
My vices are red wine and coffee.  Not so bad, right!?

lots of organic kale (black kale or baby kale).  natural unsweetened almond butter ~ Justin's is my favorite brand by far.  organic cinnamon  1 small banana.  3/4 cup organic almond milk.  1 tsp. raw wild honey.  4 or 5 ice cubes.

This is my go-to smoothie.  Perfect for a post work out lunch or a breakfast on the go!

vino rosso. 

I've always been partial to Italian imports, but lately I've been loving California red blends.  This one is light and seems to go well with everything.  I love the name too.  Who doesn't love being inspired!?

organic zuchinni.  organic portobella mushroom. organic, non-GMO, extra firm tofu.  vidalia onion.  organic garlic.  organic, unsalted sunflower seeds basil.  fresh rosemary.  pink sea salt. crushed black pepper.

I love to whip up veggie bowls with whatever ingredients I happen to have in the fridge.  My family doesn't eat the way I do, so many times I make them "normal food"  (the term they have assigned) while I have something like the picture above.  This was one of my favorites recently.

organic red bell pepper. sliced vidalia onion. 1 organic free range egg. 1 kumato tomato sliced.

This one is a quick breakfast using up the fresh produce before a market run.

Hope you enjoyed Foodie Friday!

We've make it to mid week. Woo-hoo!
  For some reason, this one is flying by...maybe it's the warmer temps & the sunshine.  Whatever it is, I'll take it!

Today, my look is super simple but one of my favorite go-tos.  A grey tee, skinnys, booties & a scarf!   It always works.
