Honeybee Health: Random Shots

Happy Sunday laddddies! Many of you have requested more Honeybee Health posts so i’m going to try to do these weekly for you. Here are some random shots from last week…..
(Organic ground chicken with bell peppers, quinoa and my Homemade Kale Salad)
For those of you who have been following me for awhile you will probably notice a reoccurring meal theme which look like these two. Doing meal preps earlier on in the week helps me to stay on track esp for lunches. Its typically lean proteins, complex carbs and a large portion of veggies.
Organic rotisserie chicken , brown rice and roasted veggies
Out to dinner I felt for pasta so I had it! I opted for the turkey bolognese and only ate half of this portion (and had a nice glass of wine too! )
Keeping it healthy out to lunch with an open faced tuna sandwich (mayo free!) made with olive oil and on whole wheat. I requested “no pesto” but they forgot and I ate it anyhow.

I’ve mentioned before my hubby LOVES wings! So off to Buffalo Wild Wings we went ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m not a fried food kind of girl but I am a margarita (and this one is DEF not a skinny version) and warm soft pretzel kind of girl so I indulged in these!

Typical weekend breakfast… One egg, two egg whites, whole grain toast (yup dry…sometimes i’ll put jam or honey but most of the time I just have it plain) and organic, nitrate free turkey bacon! There are a ton of nutrients in the yolk of an egg so I have them just in moderation.

I pretty much always crave something sweet in the afternoon. I’ll go for tea with agave and some dried apricots to see if that does the trick. Another option I go with is a chocolate or carmel biscotti and a latte.

and sometimes when those options don’t cut then you jut give in to your craving….vanilla ice cream and almond butter! Almond butter isn’t sweet so I added a little agave to it ;))) Done and done!

These are my go to pre made green drinks! 
I tend to go with the evolution one more because it’s lower in calories and cheaper! The Suja juices are awesome but crazy pricey! I have the hardest time spending almost $9 on them! 

On the weekends we tend to do take out. Ordering from Pei Wei I get the gluten free Veitnamese spring rolls, edamame, steamed veggies, brown rice and a side of steamed chicken. The rest of the family goes with the lo mien, honey chicken and fried rice. My meal may not look as exciting but to me it’s all about picking and choosing. I just don’t love fried food that much so when I indulge I want to it be stuff that I REALLY love. Desserts and cocktails are worth all my splurge calories.

Ordering To Go from PF Changs I got the lettuce wraps, vegetable dumplings (steamed), Buddah’s Feast (which is steamed veggies), The Kale Waldorf salad (ps I think it tasted too good to be that healthy ๐Ÿ˜‰ and some egg drop soup. This was all shared with my sister in law.

I hope this was helpful for you ladies!

    I'm obsessed with Suja! $10 bucks at my Wholefoods ( I live on Maui ). Ugh!!! We don't get many flavors though…. Dying to try the Vanilla Cloud one! This is becoming an expensive habit. Aloha ๐Ÿ™‚

    Why do you request "no pesto"? Is is fattening or otherwise bad for you, or do you just not like it?

    I toss kale in a little bit of olive oil and garlic, sautรฉed with low sodium chicken broth (covered) for 10 min. Uncover and reduce sauce. Squeeze in lemon juice and top with Parmesan. It's like a spinach steak;)

    SO excited that you are going to start doing these once a week! It is very helpful seeing your healthy choices while eating out….it's also nice knowing that you aren't afraid to splurge some too! ๐Ÿ™‚ "It's all about choices" has become my new motto when sitting down for a meal! Thanks Andee!

    I have to try prepping meals during nap time like you do- how long does your baby nap for and for how long? I find I never have the time! Also what are your go-to snack in between breakfast/lunch and lunch/dinner? thanks lovely!

      Ava is down to one nap a day now and usually 1.5 to 2.5 hours. It changes daily but she pretty much always naps for at least 1.5 (thankfully!). Go to snacks would be apple and a string cheese // greek yogurt and a little granola // a fiberful or protein bar ….somthing like that keeping it around 200 calories.

    Hi Andee,
    How do you stay so motivated? My resolution this year was health and fitness. I want to drop a lot of weight and I was doing great! I would hike (2) days a week and for (4) days a week I would do my Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred. I have lost all my motivation this past week. I only worked out (3) days and cannot get any energy to start again. How do you stay motivated?
    Thank you in advance ๐Ÿ™‚

      thats a good question… Its def motivating here in orange county because everyone is in great shape and very active so that definitely helps! I guess I would just say to keep your goal in mind…see yourself where you want to be and hopefully that will push you ๐Ÿ˜‰ Take small steps each day and you'll get there! xo

    Lucky for me I actually like dry toast ๐Ÿ˜‰ A healthy option though is to spread coconut oil on. A good way to get some healthy fats in, and tasty too!
