Sunshine Quest

So I’ve been on this quest you see. A long and arduous quest to get as healthy as possible. I mean, I want sunshine shootin out my backend…I want to sweat granola I’m so healthy. So for the past 4 months I’ve completely cut out dairy, which I should have done like 10 years ago because I’m lactose intolerant, but I was in denial and was always sick from it. I’ve also cut out refined sugars (except for red velvet cupcakes). Let me just explain…I had to. Seriously. Sugar is like crack to me. When I don’t have it I’m thinking about getting it, and then when I get it I feel guilty for having it…it’s a vicious addict cycle. So that’s gone, and honestly, I am beginning to see the light. Don’t get me wrong…there are days I just want to sit on the couch with a bag of hot Cheetos, but alas, I prop myself up on the elliptical, press start, and hope that my legs follow suit. One time they didn’t…I’ve got the bruises to prove it. So anyways, I thought I would include a few delicious new staples in my almost vegan(I eat fish), not by choice but by necessity, diet.

Barny butter (Almond butter- from Whole Foods)

Quinoa (contains all 18 essential amino acids)

Almond Breeze
Agave (great natural sweetner)
Vegan protein
Carob powder (its like coco powder)
Gaucamole Hummus (trader joe’s)
