Food, Family, & a Couple Notes for YOU!

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful day! Earlier this evening, when I came home from the gym, my aunt and uncle (Rhonda & Bill) were here visiting. I loved that they came over because I haven’t seen them in a while since we’ve been going to different Church services (I started going to the gym at 8:30 and going to Church at 12). While we chatted we snacked on Edamame. So yum!

I also pulled out some of the new stuff I got at Trader Joes today, and we decided to give the Sunflower Seed Butter a try. WOW was it good!

I tasted just one teaspoon of it and fell in love! I found this on A blog that I know you all will love! Her pictures are SO GREAT!

While hanging out in the Kitchen, my Mom was busy making everyone Boca Burgers! Mmm mmm good! This is one of our favorite things in the Burton house! We’ve been eating Boca burgers for so long that a real burger doesn’t even make happy anymore- in fact, it just makes me sick & too full!

Boca is the way to go! 🙂

Even my guy friends who are totally faithful to their manly man burgers love these 😉

Look how good that looks! It really was THAT good too! I told my Mom… “I know we have these a lot, but this is like the best Boca Burger I’ve ever had!”

It was on a Honey Wheat Bun, and inside was: Bleu Cheese Dressing- skip the Mayo, Mustard, Horseradish Sauce, lettuce, tomato, pickles, and onion! So delicious! I skipped the cheese tonight too, and passed up the fritos. I have been playing a little challenge came in my head today to see what I can give up without jeopardizing taste! I’ve probably saved a ton of calories! I should play this more often 😉

After dinner I got ready and went over to my friend Kelsey’s house for her going away party! Everyone sat by the fire and hungout and had a good time with lots of laughs! We took pictures, but they’re on Kelsey’s camera so I’ll have to add them in later 😉

When I got home I made this Petite Treat!

It’s half a pink lady apple (my favorite!) and a tsp. of sunflower seed butter!

So yummy!

And so little! Hit the spot juuuust right!

I hope you all have a great rest of the night! I’m off to bed so I can wake up in the morning and add the Trader Joes Shopping List to the blog! You’ll be able to print itright out and take it to the store with you! It took me two hours to make, because I couldn’t photograph anything- I did it all by hand! Stick around for that post because I have a couple questions to ask you guys too! 

NOTE: The 6-8 week No Grains, No Sugar, No Cheese Diet WILL be happening. I will be doing it and blogging through the entire thing! I am looking at my calendar and will pick a date most likely by tomorrow, so I’ll keep you all posted on that! Whoever wants to RESET their relationship with food, give this a try! It worked wonders for me!

Love to you all!

    Hey Paige! I was just curious when you say “reset your relationship with food.” How did the 6-8 week challenge help you do that?
    Also thanks so much for doing it! I remember reading about you doing this “cleanse” months and months ago when you first started to blog and was always curious about it. I may not be able to start the same time as you – would be very hard on a vacation 😉 – but I’m looking forward to giving it a try within the next couple weeks!

    • Hey Bianca! Yes, the 6-8 week challenge was given to me by my Naturopath, and the goal was to ‘reset my mindset.’ He knew this would help because I would get my body very used to eating mostly fruits and veggies and all whole and healthy foods. For me, it was more than that though. This way of eating was the first time in 6 years that I felt in control of what I ate, and trusted myself 100% not to mess up. It was the first time where I didn’t have to look at the amounts of what I was eating, and it was the first time that I really challenged myself to LISTEN to my body and it’s cravings. I ate anytime I was hungry, and I always ate what I felt like I was craving (within the means of the diet). For the entire 7 weeks that I did it, I weighed myself each morning, because I wanted to show myself that weight naturally fluctuates ALL the time even when you really are only eating healthy foods. It was basically a diet that conquered my insecurities, stresses, and past experiences with food; it got me where I am today!

      I do hope you’ll join! Join in at any time and know that you can always write me for support/questions! Also, during the whole process, I never once felt deprived because I knew what a good thing I was doing for myself and I knew that it was for my health and mindset, and not my weight (even though I did lose some weight). I haven’t set a date, but I will post today when I do set it! 🙂

  2. I eat a lot of cereal! I’ve been eating Multi-Grain Cheerios lately. I’m eating it for a late lunch right now 🙂
