This week, I couldn’t bear to show only one day of food.
There were too many colorful meals from which to choose.
Many times where berries stole the show.
Even blended, they were determined to be noticed.
In oatmeal, they popped out and demanded attention.
But then the greens marched in.
Vibrant, fresh, crunchy, and refreshing.
I lunched with layers and layers of fresh baby spinach, raw broccoli (my favorite) and avocado piled on top.
A zucchini sliced thin made for a fun twist on a personal pizza over the weekend.
And when heated, the asparagus shone an even brighter green and were perfect for dipping in bright yellow yolks.
Produce was a priority this week.
Summer only lasts so long.
Bring on the heat if it also means berries, peaches, cherries, summer squash, asparagus and watermelon.
And just in time for the fitness part of this month’s WIAW, I got my first taste of the kettlebell.
My trainer, sensing his limited time left, practically killed me yesterday.
Squats with a kettlebell.
Tricep kickbacks with a kettlebell.
Lucky for you, my fingers are about the only thing not sore right now.
It was one of my favorite workouts ever. Me and the kettlebell – friends for life.
