Meals for the day...... 

Morning routine. Several of you have asked what I put into my lemon drink. I first heard about this from the company My Fit Foods and began to read more into this method of cleansing first thing in the morning. Several books recommend doing this, and I have found it to be a great start to my day. I simply take 1 lemon, though you can use just 1/2, and i add it to warm water, and then a few dashes of cayenne pepper along with 1 tbsp of Braggs Apple cider vinegar. To this I sometimes will then add R.W.K Just Cranberry juice and there you have it! The vinegar is hard to take at first but now I am used to it. 


Breakfast - Water and a Ginger Snap Larabar (eating on the go while heading into town to have lunch with my husband and go to Whole Foods!) 


Lunch - Field of Greens Restaurant....LOVE IT! Salad with a grilled falafel burger with vegan mayo and sprouts on Ezekiel bread. I only ate half though, my precious husband ate the rest with complete joy! LOL 



Snack - Whole Foods Motor Oil drink with added Ginger root. 


Michaela wanted to have some of my drink! 


Late afternoon snack - Garden of Life super seed blend, wheat germ and greek yogurt with raspberries along with Goji berry and Oolong tea. 


DInner - Tofu, asparagus stir fry with Kimchi and my Raw Cacao, Maca and Chia seed shake

Jen, well first let me just say happy birthday to your little gorgeous bundle of joy. Ive been there from the beginning and have really enjoyed the great pictures and your joyful and kind spirit. ; ). You've inspired me in so many ways. I'm trying to get my bod baby ready and am thinking of doing a blog to document the journey. I do have a quick you post your pictures to your blog via cell phone? I just got an iPhone and am not quite savvy with it yet. Is it easy to post pics to your blog from your cell? Im thinking via phone would be the easiest for me rather than carrying a camera with me. Would you mind sharing your post process?
