My journey along the yellow brick road to becoming an RD
i've been curious about body flow too! i love les mills stuff - great to know it was a killer workout even though it is more yoga/pilates-based! sounds like you had a lovely weekend...
Ohh I think you girls' company would be fab- I could discuss food & nutrition till the cows come home ;)! Love that Organic Works doesn't skimp on the sandwich fillings..now that's what I call a turkey sandwich! I tried tai chi once in high school but I just couldn't get into it! For low-impact workouts I prefer to stick with yoga or swimming. I think I need to do pilates a few more times before I can decide how much of a fan I am (or am not)!
Sunflower seed butter and coconut butter are definitely my picks for a nut butter alternative!! Sooo good :)
YOGA! But never done tai chi before so that'd be interesting for sure! my favorite is cashew butter or sunflower seed butter!! yummm!!
I love both yoga and pilates. It has been way too long since I have done pilates, though :(.I have never tried sunflower seed butter, but I am dying to!
last class of undergraduate, gosh how time has flown by this year!
I did body flow once or twice at Goodlife - I felt a little bit awkward during the tai chi parts too...still a good class though!I'll have to check out meatless market the next time I'm in town. Which I'm pretty sure is the weekend after you move out :-( Boo!
Your sandwich sounds like the bomb - there's something so scrumptious about simple turkey sandwiches! I had 2 mile-high ones myself this weekend and it was glorious :DP.S. I had no clue you were graduating and moving – where will you end up?!
You guys have the best natural food stores! I need to make my way up there to check them all out! And the place you look sounds amazing....you always have yummy lunches from there!
Sounds like a great weekend :)
A nut butter alternative demo?! I'd definitely be all over that! I'm not really surprised that nut butter alternatives don't sell - it seems like not many people know about the outside the blog world... I know I was totally ignorant to pretty much everything besides peanut butter until I started reading blogs, anyways... And now coconut butter has become one of the loves of my life :)
Mm none of the above? Haha kidding...kind of :P i secretly blame yoga for irritating my knee problem/being the breaking point, so it's still on my stink list...but I'd rather do it more than the others on that list..:such is life! And i love all nut and seed butters except cashew butter...just not a fan of that at all....i can't believe how close you are to being done! Here's hoping you enjoy every minute :)
Woot I hope your last class went splendidly, how exciting is that! The nut butter alternative demo sounds awesome and I'm glad that it went well. I think it's something that not too many people are aware of, and getting the word out in anyway at all is helpfulToo bad that sushi wasn't too good.. I know exactly what you mean when you say it tasted like it came from a grocery store, kind of meh! I would say my current favorite nut butter is good ole peanut! But almond butter is always great too :)
YES!! Finally I have been trying to comment for so long, and I finally got it working! Couldn't use and openID before but now I can and I am happy because I missed commenting on your posts! :) SOunds like you had a nice weekend. That sandwich really does look perfect (except for me without the onion because I am allergic haha)! My favourite seed butter is tahini, closely followed by pumpkin seed butter. I think I actually like seed butters better than nut butters! :)
Congrats on your last undergrad class! It must be bittersweet leaving London.
Oh yah Pilates totally gets you! One of my sorority sisters from college is a Pilates instructor - she visited me last year and taught me some sequences...holy crap. And I used to think I had a good set of abs, lol. Anyway, this sounds like such an awesome foodie weekend - seriously London seems like it has all these cool vegan/organic/local produce places, that's SO hard to find in the US! (except in Boulder, the ultimate hippie city :-P). Love that you did the nut butter demo too - honestly peanut butter is probably my least favorite of the nut butters (and not because I'm allergic to it) - so glad I've discovered things like almond and cashew butter! And as for the things you and your friends talk about at the dinner table....yeah I have a feeling you and I would be good dinner buddies lol
I can't believe those nut butter alternatives weren't selling, I'd probably buy out the store if I lived there;)Looks like a great food store! We have a few here, and they're always pretty awesome!I hope your last class went well!!! Crazy you're almost finished up in London!
Your last class! I am so so so jealous! It is so exciting that you are about to embark on this new journey in a new place from where you have been! that buckwheat bread looks so good! Your nut butter demo looks awesome! You are going to be so great in this field! I would love to join yall next time for some rd2b chit chat! All of those topis are pretty constant in our house!
Congratulations on finishing school, Chelsea!! I can't wait to follow the next chapter of your journey towards becoming an RD! I know last semester was a wild ride, but all of your hard work and dedication paid off. I'm so so proud of you! <3I've been wanting to try a Les Mills workout for AGES, and think it's finally going to happen while I'm home in Boise. For some reason, those classes intimidate me! Have you done Body Pump? I think I'll start with that, and then progress to flow or Body Attack. :-pYour nut butter demo sounds like so much fun--I love talking to people about nutrition and the products I love, too! And speaking of chatting about nutrition, your dinner date with the girls sounds like one I would have really enjoyed! Happy Tuesday! <3 xoxoxo
Ohhh, it would have been SO much fun to be at your lunch table! Although I don't work in the field of nutrition, it has always been something I've loved learning about! What are your thoughts on the Paleo diet? I've not really looked into all the details, but it's hard not to notice that it's kind of been taking over the world lately. To me, it just seems wrong to participate in any sort of diet that totally eliminates a food group for no reason. I mean, it's one thing if you have allergies or diseases that prevent you from eating a certain food, but why all of a sudden are people so quick to call one item/food group a "killer"? The whole gluten-free controversy really gets on my nerves!
