Stuff I Ate: 10/25/17

Hi, friends. Another week has breezed by and I’m glad it’s Wednesday again. I have Friday off from work and I’m looking forward to playing catch-up with my school work and some writing assignments. Other goals for this next week include getting back into a regular gym routine, making more homemade bone broth, and going through some of the cookbooks I’ve checked out from the local library and prepping some actual meals.

Speaking of meals, here are some of the things I’ve been eating/drinking lately.

Breakfast has been bulletproof coffee.

I sip on it as I study NTP stuff each morning. Don’t mind my messy desk. I have several notebooks and some flashcards full of info all about digestion, blood sugar regulation, fatty acid balance, and more. I’m loving the course so far and I’m really glad I signed up. I’ve said this before but it’s worth repeating: If you’re thinking about a nutrition or health certification program, I would highly recommend the Nutritional Therapy course over Integrative Nutrition all day every day. It’s 9 months vs. 1 year. And you will learn way more with the NTA even in the first month alone. So worth it if you’re like me and want to be your own boss with this stuff. Speaking of being your own boss…I’m still kind of clueless about business basics. Another goal of mine for the upcoming week is to utilize Amie‘s business courses. I’ve been following her on Instagram recently. Check her out if you’re interested.

Lunches have been big ass salads lately.

I picked up a giant bag of fresh, local mixed greens as the Boise Farmer’s Market on Saturday. The fresh, local stuff always tastes better. And it lasts longer too. Which is good because I have a lot of it and can’t eat it all up in just a few days.

The other night Patrick and I decided to make breakfast for dinner.

The Boise Co-Op finally started carrying Birch Benders, so he bought a bag of the paleo mix. We also made some pork sausage patties and a duck egg, both from Mahleur River Meats at the farmer’s market as well. Everything on my plate got smothered with 4th & Heart’s vanilla bean ghee.

I am going to complain about my computer for just a minute. It’s so slow. And so old. It’s a MacBook Pro but I’ve had it for 6 years. I think it’s time to upgrade. Are you a Mac or PC fan? I’ve been using Macs since I started college back in 2001. But I’m open to using whatever works well. I’ll probably get another Mac unless you guys have another suggestion. I turn 35 soon (ick!) so I was thinking of buying myself a new computer for my birthday/Christmas. Yay or nay?



  1. Definitely Mac…I love my new Mac book pro. Don’t forget you’ll get a great discount as a teacher. How was BirchBenders Paleo? Costco has been carrying it I noticed here but I haven’t tried it

      The teacher discount through Apple is only $50 off now I think. Which is still better than paying full price. But yes, gonna go look at new Macs tomorrow. The paleo Birch Benders was delicious. But I think I can combine all those ingredients myself and make it a little more cost-effective.
