Alright lovelies I was planning on posting my NYFW recap today but it turns out I have A LOT more pictures that I had thought, so stayed tuned for that post in the next day or two! Today i’m doing a Honeybee Health post as you girls have been requesting one and it’s been a minute so here we gooooo with some random shots lately….
I’ve said it before but healthy eating is a lifestyle for me. I have pretty much been the same weight for the last 10 years (minus two pregnancies 😉 because I stick to clean eating andddd also indulging in moderation. That means even when travel. For breakfast at the hotel while I was in NY I ordered the greek yogurt, granola (only used half) and berries for breakfast. Healthy, filling and yummy!
Out to lunch i’m usually a salad kind of gal. I LOVE a good salad and kind of hate making them at home so that’s usually my go to when I’m out. The key is opt for ones loaded with veggies, lean proteins and healthy fats. I usually try to steer clear of bacon and cheese and opt for a balsamic/ vinaigrette (totally had to look up the spelling of that lol) dressing instead of a creamier one.
My go to quick snack at home that the kids love too. Strawberry greek yogurt, fresh berries and my favorite granola. Some granola can be a caloric nightmare and this one has a less calories (but I still only use a couple spoonfuls).
Out to breakfast with my brother last week and I went for the breakfast burrito. He wanted me to show you his which had eggs, cheese, bacon hash browns and gravy lol. Mine however was egg whites, veggies, avocado and I opted for salsa instead of cheese. It may not have tasted as good as hash browns and gravy butttt I have to say it was still pretty good!
another healthy scramble! I can’t remember if I showed you girls this one or not so forgive me if I am reposting but egg whites, spinach and feta is my favorite combo. I thought this veggie bacon sounded sketchy but I gave it a try and it was actually REALLY good. I shared one I picked up from Trader Joe’s on my SnapChat grocery haul a couple weeks ago and you girls who warned me that it wasn’t very good were right! So I’m going to try the one from Whole Foods you recommended, so stay tuned!
Healthy Lunchin’ on the go at Lemonade.
There are so many good options but the Broccoli + Ricotta and the Avocado + Tomato salad are my favorite!
Zinc Cafe has the best Avocado toast in town. I add two poached eggs on top of mine.
Kind of obsessed with Brussel Sprouts right now (I know, how lame did that sound 😉 but its true! Whole Foods sells them pre washed and cut so I just toss them in olive and sea salt and roast them in the oven for 15 minutes. I love having them prepped and on hand for the week.
A quick and healthy lunch with a rotisserie chicken mix and Brussel sprouts I prepped earlier in the week. I sautéed rotisserie chicken breast with some olive oil, sea salt, peppers and onions and added some white beans to it. Healthy, filling and SO good!
Out to an Italian restaurant for dinner. I would love to have breadsticks, pasta, pizza and wine butttt I try to be good most of the time. So I dominated some breadsticks, had a big ol’ healthy salad and you know my wine is never far behind ;)) In the words of Bethenny Frankel ” you can have it all, just not at once”. Did you guys ever ready her book from years ago? I think i’ve talked about it before but it was actually pretty good. I did feel some of her book was a little extreme but she really did have some great points in there.
and of course a little dominating is a MUST! As mentioned before I always make it point to splurge with Ava and let’s be honest she didn’t have to twist my arm with this Smore’s donut!
Hope these were helpful for you girls and you’re all having a great week! If you haven’t already, don’t forget to enter my Kate Sommerville GIVEAWAY over on The Honeybee Facebook page.
