Organic pear and almond butter.

I woke up this morning feeling really weak with a sore throat :(. I’m pretty sure it’s due to my lack of bundling up when I came back home to Boulder covered in snow. I went from perfect California 75 degree weather, to walking around in the snow without enough layers on, it was not fun.

So I ended up eating a little bit of fruit and almond butter, drank a hot cup of lemon water, and ate a clove of garlic in hopes of my sickness subsiding. Luckily, I passed out, napped for an hour and woke up feeling good as new.



For lunch I had The Classic, which made me feel really good after the morning I had feeling sick and all. I seriously think I eat too much avocado every day! It enhances every meal so much.

Walnuts and pecans



For dinner, I cooked up some organic, grass-fed beef and mixed it with asparagus, tomato, onion and garlic (cooked in olive oil). On the side, I had a simple mixed greens salad with apple, avocado (yes, more avocado! I’m addicted), and almonds. Also, a mashed sweet potato! Amazing dinner.

End of Day 3:

I was some what stressed today just because I had so many final papers to write, but my food choices were really solid. I was so relieved to take a nap and feel better instantly (seriously, garlic is the answer.. or sleep.. or both). Looking forward to tomorrow!
