Hi friends! Hope your Saturday is going great! While all of you have today off, I’ve got a full book of clients today at the salon! All good, but I’m ready for the weekend. Last night was a blast at the Laker game. I’m sure all of you noticed my late post.

So far the cleanse is going really great. My stomach feels flatter, I feel full of energy, and my intestines are happy:) today will be the 4th day, so this morning… I started off with ,y 2 liver organ cleanse pills on a empty stomach…along with my acacia fiber powder mixed with water.( I sound like a broken record, sorry. But repetition= habitual=results.

BREAKFAST:

2 mini chia protein muffins(same as yesterday)

1 Scandinavian bran crisp with RAW pumpkin seed butter and sugar free honey. These crisps are fantastic because they are loaded with fiber and have no sugar! A great, clean option for while in a cleanse.

One thing I can’t NOT have, is coffee. I mean, I’m not having sugary, creamy coffee. It’s just espresso, a stevia packet, and 1/2 cup frothed unsweetened almond milk. That’s not bad right??
Anyway… I had two cups today:) don’t judge.

LUNCH:

Ok, I promise, this is the last salmon lunch picture I will bore you guys with! Lol. Remember, I don’t like to waste food, so I’ve been having it everyday till its gone. I LOVE SALMON. High in protein, and a great source of essential fatty acids which actually help to aid in weight loss. Healthy fats are good babes! Plus, sometimes chicken just doesn’t cut it for me. In fact, I’ve been getting a bit annoyed of it lately. I guess I’ve played it out…hmmmm, like I do with many things in life.

SUPERDRINK ALERT!

Green tea with lemon.
green tea’s health benefits are astonishing! Research shows that it has potential to fight cancer and heart disease . Also, some studies have shown that green tea may play a role in lowering cholesterol, burning fat, preventing diabetes and stroke, and staving off dementia.

I try to drink at least one small cup a day:)

A very ripe persimmon. (My faves) at least it’s natural sugar;)

(Not pictured)
A few slices of cucumber

Another handful of nuts.

Before finishing up my last client of the day, I was feeling a bit tired and slow, so I had a small strawberry protein shake. 1/2 a packet of About Time strawberry whey, water, and ice.
Just a little pick me up:)

Tonight’s plan was to do absolutely NOTHING!
I very rarely just sit, relax and have no plans. I’m starting to realize how nice it is! If I’m not cooking, I’m walking willy. If I’m not working out, I’m at work. If I’m not posting, I’m sleeping! I mean, sometimes I really feel like there are not enough hours in the day to just sit and maybe enjoy a nice movie. That time should also be valued and not taken for granted.

Got home, took willy out, and decided that I wanted breakfast for dinner:)

Now, I’ve made plenty of different types of low carb pancakes, but I think this one is the easiest and super duper tasty!

When I found this recipe, I tripped out….because, guess what?

It’s only got 4 ingredients!

I originally found this on bodybuilding.com, and I doubled the recipe, but once I made them, I realized I really didn’t need to for a single serving. You will find that they are quite dense.
2 pancakes were really enough.

INGREDIENTS:

(For 2 people)

8 egg whites. I use the cage free egg white cartons cuz I hate wasting the yolk.

4 tbsp coconut flour

2 tsp vanilla bean extract or paste

2 pinches of cinnamon

Optional: stevia to sweeten if you are not gonna top them with anything sweet in the end.

You can really play around with what you want to use as toppers. I’m always a big fan of PB2 mixed with a little water, a sprinkle of unsweetened shredded coconut, and sugar free honey, you could also add fresh berries. Whatever!

Grease your pancake pan ( I use either coconut spray or smart balance spray)

In a bowl, mix all ingredients.

Use a spoon to dollop onto pan. The mixture may be a bit thick, so you might have to form them a little. Ugh, these were the BOMB, and healthy and appropriate for my cleanse. So satisfied right now.

I’m about to finish my post, and enjoy some Ryan Gosling in the movie “Drive” . I’ve been wanting to see this forever! S I’m gonna sit my ass down on this couch and enjoy my no gym day today;)
Tomorrow, I’ve got a client first thing in the a.m for the SAG awards, and then hitting the gym!
