Verse of the Day:
“Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.”
- 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
How perfect is this verse for a foodie blog? I mean, honestly, I think we lose sight of why we do our best to take care of our bodies, nutritionally and healthfully speaking? Of course we all want to LOOOK good, but my reasoning goes FAR deeper than that. My body IS my temple. I want to fuel it with the best things that I can and take care of it the way GOD wants me to! This MEANS being STRONG & HEALTHY not skinny and fragile. Are you part of the muscle movement, yet?
Before I get started, THANK YOU FOR ALL of your kind comments on the posts lately! I’m loving hearing all the feedback! XO. Yes, that was my “littlest” sister who got her 2nd hole piercing this weekend!
I decided in honor of building more muscle, pizza was in order for breakfast.
1 WW High Fiber Low Carb La Tortilla Factory wrap, toasted in the oven and then topped with plain greek yogurt mixed with SF Log Cabin syrup and cinnamon,
sliced sweet nectarine, Megafruit
and a sprinkling of granola.
Pretty epic if I do say so myself.
Lunch, again was of the packed variety. Thankfully I didn’t have to pack another dinner because I had a volleyball match and noooo class last night.
Baby bell peppers, blueberry Chobani, and a veggie and hummus wrap on a La Tortilla Factory WW Low Carb High Fiber wrap.
Wanna take a gander at the goods in the wrap? Okay, if you insist
Spinach, zucchini, tomato, onion, and hummus + salsa + mustard.
Along with a shizzzton of water that I drink every single day while sitting at my desk at work. I found a new love to accommodate my camel-like qualities, too!
It’s as big as my head! And omg. JUST realized my boob is out. See the closure on my necklace? It’s called a boob
Backkkk to the important stuff. At my desk, I nibbled on a slice of Love Force raw raisin bread at around 3PM. mmmm.
Next up, dinnah. The boy came over after work, and I made some Vegetarian Sloppy Joes from Fantastic Foods,
which is EXCELLENT (and SUPER EASY!). I used Arrabiata Mario Batali sauce in place of tomato paste which ended up being a GREAT decision. It added a little extra KICK to the mix! Anddd I couldn’t help but add some sugar free Log Cabin to the mix to sweeten it up because I like my BBQ a lil’ sweet & spicy. SOOO good!
With some greens on the side for a lil’ veggie power. This means, I had 3 total La Tortilla Factory wraps in one day. Totally NOT uncommon. I lurrrrrveee these babies. Between their company and Amazing Grass, I’m not sure who I love more.
Speaking of LOVE! One of my absolute favorite ladies in the blogosphere sent me this delicious looking package which put a smile on my face for the rest of the night!
The card was SO cute. It made me giggle for about 10 minutes. Thank you SOOOOO much, Danica!! <3 you!!
My volleyball game was at 8:15, so we just relaxed and watched HG TV together until it was time to leave at about 7:30. For privacy reasons, how about we call him FFBF (Freckled Foodie BoyFriend)? We ended up losing our match, which means sand volleyball is over for the season! Everything is coming to an end it feels like. I’ve got my math final today, too! PLEASE pray for me
My consolation prize upon my arrival home was this creamy dessert, preceded by FFBF “singing” to me the whole way home.

Three Question Thursday!
1. What made you smile today? Great blog friends & packages, the boyyy, God’s messages, delicious eats, and all of you!
2. Don’t you feel like summer is coming to a quick close??! What’s one thing left that you want to accomplish or get to do before the warm weather is completely over? I’d like to kayak on the river! And maybe take a day trip to NYC!
3. What is one way you’re “honoring your temple” for God? I treat my body with respect through mindful eating, without being restrictive, and with my MUSCLE movement on the rise!
