Purple People Eater

Well, I didn’t make it to yoga today. I missed it by about 15 minutes because I had to pick up Raleigh from the groomer. No biggie…I did about 35ish minutes of yoga when I got back.

Have I told you that Raleigh loves yoga too?


It’s why we were meant to be together 🙂 The second the mat comes out she runs to it and just sits or lays there. When I practice, she lays at the end, sometimes getting in the way. It makes me laugh though. Whenever I am in down dog she likes to walk in between my arms and legs or under me as though I am a little bridge she is crawling under. She will just circle and circle. We always say that is how she gives hugs.


This afternoon Mom and I went to Sam’s Club to buy some organic lettuce and baby spinach. We go through it so quickly and Sam’s is close that it makes sense to buy it there. Welllllll, I found these guys there and couldn’t resist. They are my favorite!


I have been pretty impressed lately with the selection of organic and natural products at Sam’s and Costco (where we will be going Sunday since it is a bit further of a drive). Sometimes it isn’t always the “healthiest” organic stuff like weird cracker or cookie things,  but atleast they are headed in the right direction with it.

Post-Sam’s Club and pre-Raleigh pick-up, my dad and I split a smoothie. This is about half of what we made:


The first thing that came to my mind was “purple people eater.” That’s all I could think while drinking this deliciousness. This mix was 1 cup of vanilla soy milk (had a LITTLE too much soy today for my liking) some of dad’s whey protein powder (going to get the hemp protein powder tomorrow at Whole Foods. Living Harvest brand, right VeggieGirl!?), half a banana and about a cup of  frozen cherries and 1/2 cup frozen blueberries. OH MY GOSH it was so good! I had never tried cherries in a smoothie and I really liked it.

Dinner was an “Eggurrito,” as I like to call it. Mexican food is my favorite and this was a breakfast inspired tribute. I sauteed red onion and yellow bell pepper then added minced garlic, cumin (which I later dropped and shattered all over the floor…yikes), 1/4c of black beans and a large handful of spinach. Topped with an over-medium egg and salsa. Delicious!


And a jazz apple. I like this kind but doesn’t compare to a honeycrisp or pink lady.



Well, I am officially exhausted. The effects of a stressful semester are finally settling in and I am so happy to be home relaxing and re-energizing. Just got good news though….I got straight A’s! I am very proud that all of that hard work paid off!

Tomorrow morning I will DEFINITELY be going to yoga. There is a 90 minute power flow class at 9:00am. I can’t wait! I will let you know how it goes.


Have a great night…tomorrow is Friday!!

Dinner Cometh Early

I just love the weekend. I need to get in gear though to finish out the semester strong. Wednesday is the last day of class and exams are the following week. I can’t believe it is pushed so far back this year! Last year I was home for a full calendar month over the holidays. Oh well…I just need to take it one day at a time.

This afternoon I went for a 3.5 mile walk around campus with a friend who lives in the sorority house as well (That is one of the positive sides…always people around!). I have a BIG loop that goes around the whole school that I have been walking since my Freshman year. I didn’t want to get hungry in the middle so I had an apple beforehand. Pretty, huh?


I was pretty hungry when I got back. I decided to shower to hold dinner off a little longer but couldn’t wait any longer once 5:30 rolled around.

I had an Ezekiel English Muffin with egg whites (cooked in the micro; not the best way but you gotta do what you gotta do) and a slice of cheddar cheese (are you noticing that I LOVE cheese), and a salad of broccoli slaw, carrots, cucumbers, yellow bell pepers and tomatoes with a little Sesame Goddess Dressing from Whole Foods.


Here’s the salad…


You may see quite a few repeats over here at Eat The Whole Thing. When I buy a certain veggie or salad component, it has to show up a lot so it doesn’t go to waste!

I had a little dessert right after to cure my sweet tooth. Vanilla yogurt (maybe 1/4 cup) with homemade granola and pumpkin butter. Can you say YUM?


Well I’m off to study, relax, and get ready for the busy week to come!
