Happy New Year!

Hey everyone! So I finally feel back to normal health wise so it was back to the gym for me after work. Another great workout so I'm really gonna work to get back in my hardcore routine...which means many more home workouts. I just need to grab some more gear from the sporting goods store then I can really test out my new home routines that I came up with.  I'll definitely be sharing them here as well so hopefully by next week I'll be able to get that going.

I don't know if I've ever mentioned in this blog that I'm Jewish so maybe this is my "coming out" but tonight I am celebrating the Jewish New Year with my family. It is a small group this year, myself and my parents, my bro, sister in law and my beautiful/super precious niece. It's always nice to be with family, and we are going to be sharing a yummy meal. Family meals are always funny because we all have such different tastes...but they always work out in the end.

Anyway, here are the eats!

Breakfast was a little atypical for me today, but I've been dying to try this maple pecan oat bar that I got in my care package from Isobelle so I decided to forego my regular old bowl of oats for this bad boy. It was SOOOO GOOD. The text was really nice, soft with a really nice chewiness from whole oats. It wasn't very sweet at all and had a nice nutty taste from the pecans. It was definitely a nice treat :)

Lunch was a rice bowl with brown rice, roasted cauliflower, roasted chickpeas, sun-dried tomatoes and some nooch. Delicious as always.

No dinner yet and I doubt I'll get a pic of it but I'm planning on a big plate of roasted veggies (eggplant, zucchini, onion and mushrooms) with some hummus and probably a little portion of roasted potatoes. Yum!

Have a great night!


  1. I'm so glad you are better! I can't wait to hear more about your home work out. I have all kinds of equipment, so you would think that I would be totally motivated, but I'm not. I'm trying though.
    Your veggie and rice bowl looks good as always!
    Have a great night with your family!

  2. Thanks Michelle! Yeah I'll detail some of them next week probably. Just need to grab some ankle weights. WHat kind of equipment do you have?

    Sooooo....I got a notification that I had a comment from Ingrid but it mysteriously disappeared :(
    Ingrid - I got you girl! lol The oat bar was AMAZING! I didn't get pics of my dinner because it wasn't exciting at all, but I'll probably have it again in the future so I'll snap away then. Matzoh ball soup was my fav and there are vegan recipes, it just takes a lot of time which I didn't have this time around but probably this winter!

  3. Happy new year! I hope you have a fun night with your family. I was raised in an atheist household, but I'm slowly transitioning to Buddhism. I LOVE holidays, though (probably because I had none growing up). My husband's Catholic, but I'm more excited about Christmas than he is. Weird, huh?

    That oat bar looks so yummy. Do they sell them at Whole Foods?

  4. Your lunch looks delicious! I've really been into cauliflower lately, yum :)

  5. Sage - Thanks! We had a great night. I'm not really religious, I'm a more spiritual person than anything. We celebrate holidays but I don't necessarily follow the same belief system. Holidays are alway fun though! I haven't seen the oat bar in Whole Foods. I'll have to ask Isobelle where she got it.

    Nikki - Thanks! cauliflower is so good!

  6. Here's a New Years Resolution: Stop re-using the same pics!!! I can see that Tupperware container of Rice, Cauliflower, Chickpeas and Sun-Dried Tomatoes with my eyes closed!

  7. LOL! I promise you that is NOT a recycled pic! I just pack the same meals in the same containers every day! I also typically use the round container for this meal :)
