To start…Happy Valentine’s Day! Whether you’re celebrating with someone special, with friends or on your own; take the time to celebrate something! Have some fun, get creative and relax.
We’re definitely having fun here at our house:
But, today was something other than a holiday. It was also the day to wrap up week two of Lorna Jane Active and Fit Approach’s Move, Nourish, Believe Challenge!
To follow through on this week’s challenges I went meatless on Monday, which was pretty simple; we’ve started this trend already! I got creative and made the Cooking Channel’s How to Live to 100’s Cauliflower Lentil Tacos. Even the kids ate them..delicious! Tuesday, or, Take Your Lunch to Work Tuesday required a little creativity since well, my work is here at home. I stuck with the healthy nourishment theme and made my favorite chicken tacos; fresh chicken and veggies made for an excellent mid-day snack. Wednesday was all about tracking what you eat. I found it to be an interesting exercise in paying attention to what actually goes in my body. Thursday I put my new food processor to use to create a delicious spinach, carrot, strawberry, banana green smoothie. Then, today I rounded out the week by going vegan for lunch with a Beet, Orange and Tofu salad. Again, delightful.
It’s been a fun week; a lot of these challenges were in line with what I already do, but it’s fun to shine some light on a few ways to live healthier! I’m looking forward to next week’s challenges centered around “Believe!”
