Food + Food + Food >>>

For those of you who do not know, my awesome husband works at HEB (a texas grocery store).  Funny enough, he works in produce, but he hates veggies.  For the past several months they have been rebuilding his store into a huge super store.  It just opened up a few days ago, and I get to go see it today for the first time.  Im much more excited about this then he is.  The last thing he wants to do after working there all day, is turn around and go back to grocery shop.  But Im thrilled to see the new place he is working at, and see all the new stuff they have to offer.  They will now have a big organic bulk section, a juice bar, fresh cut fruit bar, plus many other things Im not too interested in, like tvs and clothes and such.  It will be a big step up from what it was before.  

The last week or so, Ive been eating awful.  Ive been super lazy about putting things together.  Since today is monday, and Im starting my day off with some yoga, (and later going to the grocery store), I thought Id inspire myself with some food!  I tend to take alot of photos of my food and then always forget to share.  So these are just a few that looked yummy.  Maybe not all the most healthy, but healthier, yes!  Aunt Lisa, if you are reading this, maybe some of these will be inspiring to you :) 

{tomato soup - basil pesto pasta with fresh tomatoes - grilled cheese and basil panini}

{hummus + asiago cheese - wheat crackers - grape leaf wrapped rice - watermelon - honeydew}

{avacado - roasted red bell pepper - corn - lemon + salt + pepper}

{green shake - oj + spinach + dandelion + frozen fruit - liquid vitamins + mango juice}

{fried egg + avacado + spinach + hummus + toast}

{spinach + cucumber + tomatoes + almonds + dried cherries + pine nuts}

{yogurt + blueberries + granola}

{split green pea soup - cheese - wheat crackers}

{hummus - crackers - cheese - grape leaf wrapped rice - carrots - brocolini}

{bananas + oatmeal}

{turkey burger}

{sauted broccoli + red bell pepper + zuchinni + mushroom + feta cheese in vinagrette}

{couscous + cherry tomatoes}

I am now fully inspired to go grocery shopping!  I will defeat my urge to buy a bunch of yummy sweet stuff!  The greatest thing about each new day is that you get to start fresh.

PEACE,
Laura

  10. good for you, keeping up with yoga!! It's amazing how an hour a week can start shifting your whole mindset. Your photos look absolutely delicious! I find it helps me to eat healthier when I take the time to make things look prettier (using pretty plates, arranging them well, using lots of "colors!"... You've inspired me today too!!
