Fall fun!

Last night’s snacks:

  • an apple
  • piece of buffalo jerky (really good!  from TJ’s)
  • a few Terra chips that Bobby was eating

This morning I got up and did KICKBOXING!  And then Cardio Yoga.  Awesomeness.


  • 1.5 big pancakes with applesauce on top
  • 1 slice of uncured organic turkey bacon (so good)

After breakfast Bobby and I lounged around for a while, deciding what we wanted to do.  We ended up driving down to Watsonville (an hour away) with Griff to visit an apple farm – Gizdich Ranch.  It was so fun!  We bought some apples, took pictures, and walked around.  I scored some no-sugar-added olallieberry jam made at the farm too 🙂

After the farm, Bobby worked at home and I ventured out to Whole Foods (again) and Milk Pail (local amazing grocery) and bought way too much produce.  I don’t think we will need to shop for groceries ever, ever again.


  • 2 fresh apples at the apple farm
  • 1 whole wheat wrap with olallieberry jam (from Gizdich Ranch) and smart balance when we got home
  • fruit samples at Whole Foods (2 pieces of mango, grapefruit, cantaloupe, I forget what else?)


  • carnival squash fries & ketchup (went back for more)
  • 1.5-2 cups of leftover lentil leek soup – topped with chopped tomatoes (and snuck a few bites from the pot too)
  • cornbread


  • homemade apple crisp with green tea and espresso soy ice cream (got both on sale at Whole Foods today)

As I made tomorrow’s lunches I also snacked on the rest of the squash fries and an apple… The apples we got today are so good.  Which leads me to my question for the night – what’s your favorite fruit?  And does it depend on the season?

    Buffalo jerky is delicious, but I can’t decide yet if I like it more than TJ’s turkey jerky. Hmmm will have to think about that one.

    Tonight’s dessert was delicious by the way. Can we have it again tomorrow night? Thanks so much sweetie. 🙂

    My favorite fruit would have to be……… Orange (especially with a little bit of Nutella). It’s a winter fruit so yes it depends on the season (but I had it all year round in Florida). When it comes to flavors though, like for ice cream or drinks, I usually go for the berries (strawberry, raspberry).

    Biz – Yes! It’s so good. They have a similar brand at Whole Foods but it’s more expensive.

    Interesting. Not sure I pegged you for a jerky lover!

    I love traditional fruits: apples, oranges, bananas and fun dried fruits like dates and prunes.
