Reclaim & Revolt, Day 10

Today's focus on Reclaim & Revolt — a 28-day program to improve physical and spiritual health run by four amazing femmes from Portland — was on honing our intuition. Erin Aquarian sent us a huge Tarot primer, and I can't wait to dive into it this weekend when I get some free time.

This morning, I had one of my favorite bars — a Cookie Doughpness Cinnamon Raisin Picky Bar — before my 6:15 am gym class. I always eat my bar on the 7-minute drive downtown. Have y'all had these? I can only find them at my running store (Breakaway Running), but they're worth the special trip. They're made with dates and nut butter and other real foods.

After the gym, I came home and had a proper breakfast of Lacy's Savory Baked Oatmeal. This has pinto beans, lots of cilantro, oats, nooch, and salsa, and it's just perfect. This was on her Reset & Restore plan last year too, and I remember loving it then. I cut her recipe in half and baked it in two ramekins — one for today and one for Friday. I topped my little ramekin with avocado and salsa.

I had a few bites of trail mix before lunch (no pic, sorry), and then my lunch was a leftover Macro Bowl — gobbled up during a noon-time work meeting. This has brown rice, steamed kale, chickpeas, tahini, sesame seeds, and kraut.

I got a chocolate craving in the afternoon, so I had a little of this Endangered Species Chocolate. I always keep chocolate bars in my desk for emergencies!

I go to yoga at my gym most Wednesday nights, and tonight was no exception. Before my 6:15 pm class, I had Apple Slices with Sunflower Seed Butter.

When I got home from yoga, I had a glass of cab sauv (because it sounded good), and then I sat down for dinner.

I started a batch of Lacy's Slow Cooker Chunky Red Sauce in the Crock Pot this morning before work, so I could have Spaghetti Squash with Red Sauce & Tempeh Sausage for dinner after yoga. The tempeh sausage was another of Lacy's recipes, one she recommends serving with this sauce. This was so good! I love how you can eat a TON of spaghetti squash before you get full (or at least I can!). This sauce has minced cauliflower, carrot, and eggplant, so the veggies are snuck in!

I love Picky bars! They're not easy to find but the sunflower seed one is amazing (not sure your stance on honey, that flavor does have honey).
All smart people have chocolate in their desk drawer.
