healthy eating in january

healthy eating in january
january always seems to have a focus on healthier eating
right after the new year..although we definitely didn’t focus
on healthy eating at the start of the year in sonoma,
we enjoyed and came back with a renewed desire
to cleanse our bodies and feel good this month!
the only problem is how busy we are
{and right now feeling even more than usual…}
with both of us working full time, + my last semester
of grad school & TFA + managing apartments,
having visitors and having adventures, it can feel
hard to have time to shop for and cook healthy food.
luke’s local¬†came to my rescue when we first
got back in town by delivering fresh, delicious meals
to our door so that we had healthy food without even
having to think about it. i was so impressed with
them, because you’re getting local, healthy, organic
meals all at once. it felt so good to stock the fridge
not just with groceries, but meals ready to eat all
week long. it truly saved me and we both loved them!
the meals come ice-packed so they
can be delivered when you’re not home.
^^ that breakfast burrito …. the best!
^^ they even partner with sow juice,
one of our favorites! yum.
^^ i took these to work and loved
the flavor combo…kale, apple,
butternut squash, chicken, poppyseed
dressing. all the good stuff.
the fish meal–grilled california walu with
coconut curry + rice + squash– was
probably my favorite thing in the box.
the great thing with luke’s local is that some
items are staples {like the kale salad} but other
meals change each week– so there are always options!
aside from luke’s, we also tried some amazing
how to make healthy thai food, and agreed to do
a juice cleanse together at the end of this month
as part of our 2014 new years resolutions. eek!
we also ordered this all-natural {delicious} pb
from peanut butter & co. to indulge
ourselves with the healthiest, best pb possible!
here’s the thing.
food should not be a source of stress.
it’s important to put good things into
our bodies, but not obsess over it.
we’ve adopted the 80/20
80% good stuff, leave 20% for
the treats :) nothing extreme!
here’s to feeling good + being balanced,
and still treating ourselves in 2014.
