Healthful Mind Body and Soul

Be Whole Body Healthly!



wiaw love your veggies month button 2This was no ordinary Monday, because it was Presidents Day, for some it was a holiday from work, but for me I had staff development training and I was one of the trainers. When I’m a presenter in front of large groups, I get just a little bit anxious until I’m in front of the group speaking.

To get my day going I started with two waffles layered with a mixture of MaraNatha No Stir Almond Butter and TJ’s Speculoos Cookie Butter, sliced bananas and sprinkled black chia seeds.  Give this a try and you will be hooked!  My drink was freshly steeped JavaVans Mate tea from Teavana.  If you are a tea lover, you have to try this place if there’s one in your area.

Breakfast 7:00



8:30  I grabbed a cup of coffee in my recyclable Starbucks cup after arriving at the training site. I purchased the cup for $1, and every time I use my cup at Starbucks, I get .10 cents off my coffee purchase.    I’m sticking to my goal of being less wasteful.

10:30 I downed a Protein Berry Smoothie from my Starbucks double-walled insulated acrylic tumbler, I received as a gift on Valentine’s Day.


I didn’t do my grocery shopping over the weekend, so I didn’t have a lot to put together for lunch.  I made a veggie and apples plate for lunch, honey mustard for dipping veggies and TJ’s Cookie Butter for my apple slices.

Lunch 12:35


Do you ever feel like having breakfast for dinner? Well, I did on Monday and it was a tasty one.

Scrambled soy chorizo eggs with mozzarella cheese, flat bread & fig butter and orange slices.

Dinner 6:15


For something sweet later I had two pieces of my Valentine candy.

7:30 After Dinner sweet Snack


Question of the day. 

Do you like public speaking? How are you when speaking to large groups?

Hi, I'm Celeste 'm a no flesh eating vegetarian who loves to run, cook and eat good wholesome food, living a healthy lifestyle has always been important to me. In 2011 I became a vegetarian because I was experiencing digestive problems it seemed after every meal and I just didn't feel good. After reading Crazy Sexy Diet by Kris Carr I was convinced that eliminating all meat from my diet and adding more real foods was worth a try. Kris's book taught me so much about the power of whole fresh fruits and veggies, and their impact on our bodies. After a few months I started to feel the difference and I have never turned back. My hope is to share something that helps you on your journey to being Whole Body Healthy! Follow me on Facebook,Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.

  1. What a great deal of meals. Breakfast is totally acceptable for breakfast. In fact, I’ll be having eggs this evening 🙂

    Have a fabulous rest of the day.

  2. Hi. I just found your blog and your food choices look so yummy. I especially love the plate of veggies for lunch. I also just followed you on twitter.

  3. I’m intrigued by your lunch – so many different colours and flavours. Cookie butter is so good, right?
    Also, I think it’s commendable you’re using a recyclable mug at Starbucks. Honestly, I’m working at a fast food restaurant and it make me sad to see how much rubbish we produce every day. So thumbs up for you :).

    Speaking in public is something I wish I was better at but I’m incredibly shy and anxious in front of huge groups. So your anxiety vanishes as soon as you start speaking? It’s a fear I’d really like to overcome.

    • I haven’t always been able to calm down so fast , when I train I engage the group with ice breakers and activities throughout that maks it easier.
      Trader Joe’s has been open in my area for just a short while now and cookie butter has become a favorite and is always in my pantry.

  4. Yummy, sounds so healthy and delicious. I love doing breakfast for dinner, or any meal for that reason! Almond butter is a favorite, I use that same type all over my oatmeal and apples or bananas(: I look forward to seeing more 🙂

  5. Yay for leftover Valentine’s Day candy! Love your modge podge for lunch. I bet that cookie butter and apple combo was delicious.

  6. I like public speaking – but mostly once I get into it… the beginning part always has me a little bit nervous! Once everyone starts responding, though, I feel better 🙂
