Look At All The Healthies I Ate This Week! 15-June-2013


Fruit, fruit, and more fruit.  Freshly picked from a farm in Bakersfield.  Holy cow, I love summer.  Fruit.  Matt and I stocked up with over a week's worth of nature candy and I've nibbled on all combinations of available flavors every meal, all week long.  Peaches, pluots, blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries.  Pretty sure my fingers are permanently stained purple from sneaking snacks during the day.

  
Eat-Smart Kale Vegetable Salad, my favorite bagged mix! Topped with a fresh grilled and sliced Fork In The Road pasture-raised beef and compassionate pork hot link.  These babies are spicy and oh so delicious.


Farm fresh strawberries, a banana, and a cup of coconut water, blended into a frothy fury of tasty breakfast smoothie.


One of the biggest slacker breakfasts I've made in a long while.  Two pastured eggs and a big bowl of kale chips.  I wanted veggies, but was not in the mood to make effort.  Kale chips were the perfect solution!


On the morning I decided to put in effort, I had two scrambled pastured eggs dappled with Wholly Guacamole and a scoop of Farmhouse Culture sauerkraut.


And of course there was uncured bacon to be had!  I didn't make effort in trying to "pose" the bacon.  Photographing bacon is like photographing Cindy Crawford in the '90s.  They ALWAYS looks good.  No effort required. 


More fruit smoothies!  Strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries with coconut water. 


The bright rich purple was a difficult capture with my iPhone, but trust me... this little guy was a gorgeous!  Now if only I had a Vitamix to pulverize those seeds.  I'm still two more birthdays full of gift cards away.  But that's okay.  It'll be worth the wait.
 

The holy grail of breakfasts this week:  two perfectly poached pastured eggs sitting on top of a bowl of kale salad, sprinkled with Himalayan pink salt, and drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  Creamy, silky, smooth, with full flavor.  I was proud of myself and my fancy breakfast creation.  I even sent Matt a photo text and description.  He didn't share my enthusiasm.


Definitely a pretty tasty week of healthies and an overload of fruity goodness!
