let’s do this.
let’s get ready for the week.
i’m pumped. i’m amped. so let’s do this.
i got 9+ hours of sleep last night.
i skipped the gym this morning.
i killed my errands this morning.
i’ve been a beast in the kitchen.
i’m ready. let’s do it. let’s do this week.
put your back into it.
more on that in a bit.
last week i have to admit i was in a bit of a gym funk.
i just didn’t want to work out. i didn’t want to be active. i pretty much forced myself anytime i went.
hold up. it’s just not that serious.
and so this weekend i took it down a notch, a way notch.
i chilled, i opened a book (GASP) well i didn’t open it persay i downloaded it on my kindle, i got sucked into the hunger games, i ate good food, i relaxed, i cleaned the kitchen floor (uh what) and i had some sewious “me” time.
just me spent with ME.
boom. i’m ready for this week.
so let’s do it. let’s get ready for the week.
start off with a stellar breakfast. like make it. stell to the AR.
chocolate orangesicle egg white oats uh yeah i did it.
wait what do you mean “orangesicle” well orangsicle = egg white oats + orange extract & unsweetened cocoa powder.
topped with a smooch of sunflower seed butter and some oh so expired crumbly almond butter.
it’s time for a new jar, don’t cha think..
i wanted the raw salty crunchy almond butter. the one i heart to pieces. but they only had raw unsalted crunchy, saw salted creamy, and raw unsalted creamy. what is this. so i’m giving this baby a whirl
you know what else sucks? WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME TRADER JOE’S
they stopped stocking my new obsessed simply roasted turkey/chicken breast. apparently (because i asked) the company they buy from went bankrupt (oh great) and so they’re currently looking for a new distributor
wah. wah. wah. WAH.
who else is in the house?
i julie, have a condiment addiction.
let’s do it. let’s do this weekend.
killed it in the christmas present department.
what secret santa, i mean did you not expect to get a present from trader joe’s?
silly you. silly you.
let’s do it. let’s do lunch this weekend.
i killed you lunch. drippy egg, diced chicken, cinnamon roasted chickpeas, kale, mustard & parmesan cheese.
drippy eggs + parmesan cheese need to happen in my life more often.
let’s do this. let’s do it.
let’s do this week.
come on week. you ain’t got nuttin on me.
know what else i did?
i picked a butt
ew. are we still friends after i said that?
let’s do it.
let’s do this week.
chili lime whole roasted chicken
- 1 whole chicken (cleaned, rinsed, patted dry & insides of butt picked out) <—ew most awkward part of my weekend.
- 2 limes, quartered
- lime juice (squeezed from 2 limes)
- 1/2T ground cumin
- 1/2T olive oil
- 1/2T chili powder
- 2T dried minced onions (you could do regular onions but i was lazy)
- salt & pepper to your liking
preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
after your done bathing your naked baby, patting it dry and pulling out the awkward stuff inside it’s butt (all the while screaming in disgust and gew-ness), put it to the side.
in a small bowl combine the juice from the two limes, the lime rinds themselves, chili powder, cumin, olive oil, salt & pepper & onions. mix everything together then stuff it into the butt of the chicken.
top off your chicken with some salt & pepper (and i even grinded some african spice rub from trader joe’s on top as well)
roast in the oven for about an hour and fifteen minutes, every so often if you like you can brush the chicken with the juices from the pan
i don’t have a chicken thermometer, so after about an hour and 15 minutes i just took out the chicken and stabbed it with a knife to see if it was finished.
------> see punctured chicken below.
slice up and off chicken and store in a ziploc bag or tupperware container to throw onto salads for the week
let’s do it. let’s do this week.
let’s do it.
let’s own that christmas tree.
scampering off with deej to buy our giant holiday bush.

love to love you <3
