I had a busy day, too busy for a Sunday if you ask me. I wanted to watch Hulu all day. I have some major guilty pleasures on there that I won’t speak of. They might ruin my reputation of being kind of cool. I had an audition that I needed to put on tape so my friend Chris helped me out, then after several takes I got it to my liking and drove to the grocery store. I loaded up on produce and meat, came home, unloaded, and began my meal prep. This week is going to be a little tricky because I won’t be home Wednesday through Friday. I’m working the outskirts of my territory so am overnighting it. I plan to take a cooler for breakfasts, snacks, and lunch at least.
Today I made paleo egg muffins. I’ve made them before following a recipe and they are super easy so I just kind of winged it this time. My recipe:
- 10 eggs
- 1/4 C Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 10 asparagus spears
- 4 mushrooms
- 1/2 Red Onion
- 2 Sweet peppers
Preheat oven to 350. Chop all vegetables and sauté in coconut oil. Whisk eggs and almond milk together. Once veggies are done to your liking separate them into your muffin pan. Pour egg mixture on top of veggies and bake for approximately 20 minutes. Yields 12 muffins, 6 servings.
For 21 day fix servings: 1 red, 1/3 green
- 2 lemons peeled
- 1 1/2 celery stalks
- 1 bunch of Kale
- 1 cucumber
- 1 inch size piece of ginger
- 8 strawberries
Yield 3 10 oz servings. I count each serving as 1 green, 1/3 purple.
Next I prepped my butternut squash fries. Now I seriously hate making this but I love the way they taste. I think this counts as a workout. I have the recipe posted on one of my blogs from several days ago, but you can find them on Pinterest too. Just make sure to sub any ingredients that you shouldn’t have. I seasoned mine with Himalayan sea salt, garlic powder, pepper, and paprika and have them in a gallon ziplock bag in my fridge. You might want to wait on the garlic powder because every time I open the fridge I get punched in the face with the smell of garlic. I have a black eye.
Right now I also have a whole chicken defrosting on the counter. First thing in the morning I’m putting that baby in the crockpot so dinner will be done without me having to tend to it. I also have some zuchinni and squash ready to go in the oven as a side. Tomorrow’s not even here and it’s done. Yayo!
There is also a chicken and cabbage recipe that I didn’t have time to make but it’s super quick and easy. I’ll be making that very early tomorrow morning before work gets started for my lunches. I should have made it today but I still had to get my workout in. Speaking of…
Yoga Fix – I definitely wanted to do yoga today but I felt like doing something a little extra. I needed a little push after my cheat evening on Saturday. Although I was busy all day today I wanted to sweat a little more. Before yoga I did four rounds of this to get my heart rate up and burn some extra calories…
I found it on pinterst and thought it was the perfect little push, without going all out, that I needed for today. Afterwards, yoga felt great. Every time I feel stronger and better about my alignment in the poses. It’s funny when you think you’re doing it right, make an adjustment, and then realize you’re doing it right.

- Veggie fritata. No cheese!
- Leftover turkey meatloaf
(1 green, 1/3 purple)
- Green juice
(1 red, 1 green)
- Grilled chicken breast
- Slaw without mayo
Everything I do is without mayo. I can’t stand it. That and snakes are my worst fear. If I were ever to experience hell, it will be snakes swimming around in mayo. Ugh. That’s awful imagery. I’m sorry.
I hope you enjoyed your Sunday! Get ready for the last day of 21 Day Fix!!
