Played in the dirt.
Admired the beauty of fallen petals.
Ran 4 miles on Saturday and took my 17th hot yoga class today. I saw a strong woman in the mirror!
Drank a cold Green Monster after my workouts.
Did 4 loads of laundry and cleaned some house.
Went to the mall with Jamie and bought a summer dress from Bebe 50% off.
Used one of the new cookbooks Eric got me for my Birthday- Clean Start and Clean Food by Terry Walters.
Bought some delicious cherries.
Made a Cherry Tart (from Clean Start cookbook).
It fell apart, but we loved it anyways!
Helped Eric install the deck railing.
Watched him carry wood as I drank a beer. ;)
Went to Costco, bought frozen mangoes, gluten-free & dairy-free crackers, peppercorn, and a mat.
Almost shed a tear when they didn’t have frozen cherries!
Gave a little support to my (growing!) plants.
Chatted up the spinach.
Fought the Dandelion battle with the Fiskar.
Roasted cauliflower and made Mashed Rosemary Cauliflower. I adapted this recipe.
Decided that mashed cauliflower is overrated. Give me taters, please! Eric also agreed.
I do think it would make a wonderful soup base though. :)
I stayed off the computer.
Enjoyed two Spring nights outdoors.
Realized that the mosquitos love my vegan blood a bit too much!
I’m also wishing my sister Kerrie a very Happy Birthday! Love you sis!
What have you been up to this weekend? Hope it’s been a great one.
Sounds like you had a very busy weekend.
Today was my sis’ birthday too, I celebrated with vegan cupcakes! ha!
I go through that frozen costco mango like crazy, it’s in almost every smoothie I make.
And I bought a bag of cherries too but wasn’t sure what to do with them – this week will be for pies as there is soo much rhubarb in the garden.
This weekend I threw a surprise 70th birthday party for my dad :-)
I thought this post was awesome!
I am SO HAPPY I just stumbled onto your website! I’m a healthy eater and love an occasional green smoothie. I love trying new foods, experimenting, and eating unusual things. There are few things that I enjoy eating again and again. Your website has amazing recipes, and it looks like it’ll keep me busy for a life time (not kidding!). Thank you so much! Are you going to come out with a cookbook one day? I would love to have all of these recipes on my shelf!
I hope to write a cookbook someday :)
17 classes!! Wow!! I feel like you just went to your first. That’s so amazing! Looks like such a fun weekend. The deck looks awesome, as does all the food. :)
I’ve heard really great things about Terry Walter’s books! I look forward to seeing your interpretations :)
Happy bday to your sister!
Just found your blog- thanks for sharing your inspirational story and glimpses into your beautiful life! Can’t wait to dig into some of your recipes. They look so decadent…can’t believe they’re also health!
Sounds like a busy/fun/productive/tasty/fantastic weekend to me Ange! Sorry to hear you couldn’t find the cherries – I think that pitting party we were discussing is going to have to happen! I’ve seen those books that Eric bought for you at Chapters a few times and have been very curious to take a peek inside. I can’t wait to see what else you make with them! Happy Birthday to your sister!
I love you site and green monsters! They are the best. I usually drink one daily. Can you tell me the full name of the mango powder in your picture . Can’t see if fully . Thanks !
I love doing yard work! It’s so relaxing and always so warm outside. And cherry tart sounds fantastic!
I went to the zoo yesterday with my mom and worked on some projects around the house with my dad the day before.
Sounds like a wonderful weekend! I was all jazzed to try the mashed cauliflower recipe, then I scrolled down and saw it was meh! LOL I still may give it a go just to say I did.
This looks like the PERFECT weekend. Your photos are so beautiful, crisp, and colourful!
I made the tart from Clean Start once as well but with different fruit and mine also fell apart hahaha! (but my family loved the crumbled mess still too)
Yes Strong Woman! That is you for sure. :)
I love your weekend so far, totally my style!
Relaxing, Productive, Fun, Passionate…
I love mashed cauliflower but I think adding potatoes to it is essential. Potatoes are packed with potassium and delicious, they gotta be in there somewhere :)
I’m in love with this site, Angela! I’m new to “clean eating.” I’ve lost 20 lbs and feel so good about myself. A site like yours, filled with inspiration and and simple beauty is just what I needed to keep me going!There really is a tranquil feeling in your pictures. I made the Itty Bitty Carrot Cake bites yesterday and loved them! Thanks for sharing all of this wonderful information. You made me even more excited about the healthy path I’ve chosen.
Thank you Elizabeth for your kind feedback :) Goodluck with your journey!
It sounds like you enjoyed a delightful weekend! So happy to hear!
The boy & I picked out & planted a tomato plant & a couple flowers + cleaned house + a few more necessary to do’s…
Worked Sunday then enjoyed a lovely & cozy movie night when I got home
Today, drove to Boulder to get out of town, getting ready to go to the movie to watch Hangover 2, and then grocery shop at Whole Foods & enjoy a tasty Whole Foods dinner!
Of course, had fantastic workouts & ate healthy, yummy food all the while…on Saturday night we enjoyed healthy Cookie Dough Blizzards thanks to your amazing recipe!!
Have a lovely rest of your Monday!
LOVE the clean cookbooks! Use them all the time! Just made the strawberry rhubarb nut pie last week. This weekend we rested a lot and gardened a little.
I’ve never tried mashed cauliflower….perhaps I will just leave it that way!
We finally had good weather this weekend! Yet Monday definitely brought more rain :(
Wow your plants are coming in quick! I just noticed local Cherries at the market today, I can’t believe that season is already here! I still have to wait for my cranberries though!! :(
I am sure that your husband was a little jealous when he saw you drinking a beer while he was carrying a load of wood for the deck :)
We are enjoying the beautiful weather we are finally having!!! We finally have sunshine, as opposed to the torrential downpours we have had the past while.
Today, I blew up — with a pump :) — a big, inflatable pool for our 3 year-old daughter. She had so much fun splashing around!
I volunteered, went to the beach, did some yoga and piles of cooking and baking…it was amazing!
That cherry tart looks great (even fallen apart!) but I didn’t see it in the index of Clean Start. Did you adapt it from another recipe?
Yup the blueberry tart…followed it exactly except used cherries. :)
I went to 2 Brewers baseball games this weekend… I love baseball season and I love summer!
I have the green – Clean Food – cookbook. Love it!
Just made your frozen vegan glo cups this evening and the chocolate oats “cure a chocolate craving” patties/cookie last night! What a great resource you are! I went vegan about 5 months ago and have been trying to eat like a superhero ever since, all this while battling a mean sweet tooth.
I too was wondering what type of organic beer do you drink? I noticed someone else asked as well, sorry if i missed the answer.
I drink mill street organic….brewed in Toronto!
cherries always remind me of summer! You know what else reminds me of the summer time?… You! I started reading your blog last year and I was introduced to the wonderful world that is OSG :) VOO became my staple breakfast in the hot Texas mornings.. mmmmm
