Hey all! Hope you had a great weekend
and are enjoying your long break! Winking smile

Today mister Coreycakes & I had a great #FitFluential chest/shoulder/tricep workout
where I, of course, took my GNC BCAA’s mixed with some green tea in  my shaker bottle
before, during, & after my workout!

along with the addition of my GNC Glutamine
powder afterwards to promote muscle recovery!
speaking of muscles; the veins came out to play todayyy.

today was higher reps/lighter weight
which I liked switching it up because it’s important to keep your body guessing!

*definitely had my pre-workout meal of a RAINBOW!

*My post workout meal was 1/2 a yam with cinnamon,
roasted broccoli, & egg whites with dill, spinach, & pepper!

As much as I LOVE my healthy fats,
I stuck with mainly carbs & protein
to refuel those muscles right after my work out!

I have to admit it’s pretty awesome
when I have time to make some decent #POWERMEALS
throughout the day during the weekend!

And it also helps when your boyfriend enjoys cooking
and we can collaborate on our #POWERMEALS in the kitchen!

Corey can cook a mean salmon with dill
so we paired that up with some roasted brocollini & asparagus
(350 degrees for about 25-30 minutes with coconut oil)
and some homegrown tomatoes from his house with some raw mushrooms!

There is nothing like a fresh homegrown tomato!!
Corey had some steak & veggies!
he’s currently 3 weeks out from his bodybuilding show
so I interviewed him last night for an upcoming VLOG! Winking smile
we’re cool, I know.

Some other eats from the weekend;

*Tilapia “fried” in coconut oil on medium heat on the stove, raw peppers, & avocado!
*a huge #POWERBOWL of rainbow raw veggies, avocado, & salmon “fried” in coconut oil with dill!
I’m quite possibly obsessed with DILL on EVERYTHING – especially EGGS…

ohh would you look at that?!
EGGS + DILL = HEAVEN

Papacakes always made our eggs like this when we were little;
so I’ve always loved dill and DIPPY EGGS!

And what makes it even better???
DIPPY EGGS + DILL + TOAST!

Butttttt ever since I’ve cut out gluten for the last 2 years,
I haven’t eaten that much “bread” – even the gluten free kind.
but there are days where I want something to dip into my dippy eggs..

Enter the PALEO BREAD!
I saw it on Instagram the other day & decided to buy it.
#foodieproblems

I bought it from www.julianbakery.com
Now I have to tell you, the bread is good,
but it does take a long time because they bake it fresh and then ship it,
& it’s a little pricey but that’s what you’ll get when you order a quality bread!

So it won’t be an every week purchase for me
but I bought a few loaves to keep in the freezer!

*I was craving an egg sandwich;
which was a HUGE staple meal in our house growing up!
quick & easy & oh so good!

So on this POWERCAKES version of an egg sandwich I added
3 egg white & 1 egg omelet on some kalamata olives (my addiction)
some tomato, & some BABA-gaNOOCH thanks to my girl Felicia!

The next day I couldn’t get enough to I had another POWER-EGG Sandwich
with toasted paleo bread, kale, baba-gaNOOCH, sundried tomatoes, & dippy eggs!

I ate these open faced with a side of organic dill pickles.

It’s safe to say I’m loving the sandwich combos
but of course I’ve come up with some good sweet ones as well
that I WILL be sharing! they deserve their own post.

And I’m also LOVING this baba-gaNOOCH recipe!
It’s basically a bean-less hummus made from Eggplants
IMG_7012IMG_7011
with the addition of NUTRITIONAL YEAST!
another huge staple in my pantry!

You’ve got to try it out!! Winking smile
