Hello, my friends! I have some fun and exciting news to share before I get to Weekly Bites today! Ready? I finished my Nutrition Certification which means I'm officially "Nutritious Life" certified (which means), I can officially start Health Coaching if I'd like (yay!). I will be dedicating an entire blog post to this certification, but, in a nutshell it basically means that I have enough nutrition knowledge to Health Coach. This does NOT make me a Registered Dietitian or Nutritionist and I'm not about to start calling myself one because frankly, it's not true and would be completely unfair to my friends that went to school for 4-8 years to become Nutritionists and RDs. It does, however, better qualify me to provide some factual nutrition advice to those that are interested. It also gives me a more well-rounded approach to my current fitness certifications. The more knowledge, the better. Right? Right!
It's been a few weeks since I've shared a Weekly Bites post but today, we are back in action. Let's get to it, shall we?
Weekday lunch: My love for b.good salads knows no bounds. This Kale/Brussels/Acorn squash mash-up is divine.
Dinner: My "Gamechanger Salmon" with roasted sweets and asparagus.
Saturday lunch: Quickie salad with lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, feta, balsamic and evoo. Simple, but so good.
Breakfast: Homemade acai bowl.

Friday night dinner: Steak tips with asparagus and baked sweet corn.

Breakfast: Ezekial bread with pb on one half, ab on the other and topped with half a banana and cinnamon.
Celebration: Egg salad sandwiches that I made for Mother's Day.
Dinner: DIY Acai bowl from Juice Press at The Street in Chestnut Hill.
Breakfast: Protein pancakes topped with fresh strawberries and coconut butter.
That about wraps it up. Obviously, I have been eating out at lunch more often than usual. Part of that is because my Sundays and Mondays have been too jam packed to food prep. The other reason is that I've actually had a lot of working lunches. The thing is, I haven't felt uncomfortable or unhealthy because I aim to get the healthiest thing on the menu during these lunch meetings. My rule is to always eat as healthy as possible during the week. The weekends are where I PREFER to indulge.
Have an awesome Friday! xo
