If Annie Lawless’ food diary doesn’t inspire every person on the planet to eat healthy, then I don’t know what will.

She fuels her bod with all the right food & doesn’t give a shit what anyone else thinks ( << smart girl! ).

She a total juice master; her & her partner, Eric, started Suja Juice out of their houses a few years ago & it’s BLOWN up. Lately US Weekly, Vogue, & InStyle have been dying over Suja.

I mean, clearly. Even Victoria’s Secret models love the juice ( see Annie with their models above & below ).

Ok, have fun stalking her food journal…because I certainly did!

Hi!

I’m Annie and I’m a major food snob. And no, I’m not sorry about that. I take what I put in my body pretty seriously because I know how much better I look and feel when I’m eating whole, organic, high quality foods.

I also have a lot of food allergies & it’s hard to know what goes into your food unless if you make it yourself. Plus, I LOVE to cook! I grocery shop twice per week ( Sundays & Wednesdays ) & grab things that I know I can use for a few different purposes and meals. For example, some of my staples are: salmon, avocados, kale, any & all of veggies, lentils, nuts, & seeds. I can build a lot of different meals around those items!

I also spend an hour or two on Sunday prepping ingredients so I can easily assemble something delicious quickly during the week when I may not have as much time & motivation. I also don’t snack much because my body responds better to three large meals. To give you an idea of what I eat, here’s what my week looked like:

{ Monday }

5:20 am ( pre-workout )– ½ bottle Suja Fuel

7:00 am ( post-workout )– ½ bottle Suja Fuel, two scrambled eggs with tomato & spinach sautéed in a little Ghee butter, garlic, & sea salt.

11:45 am– Avocado/kale salad ( finely chopped head of kale massaged in one whole avocado, miso, dijon mustard, garlic, maldon salt, lemon, apple cider vinegar, tahini, & flax oil with cherry tomatoes, carrot, red onion, & pumpkin seeds). **I make this at least three times per week & change up the ingredients depending on what I have.

2:15 pm– Suja Glow

5:20 pm- Twelve Essentials

7:30 pm– I made zucchini pasta from two zucchinis & dressed with white truffle oil, garlic, black lava salt, & pepper. I had two pieces of 88% dark chocolate with raw almond butter for dessert.

{ Tuesday }

7:30 am– Suja Vanilla Cloud poured over homemade raw granola ( about ½ cup ).

11:00 am– Suja Twelve Essentials

1:00 pm– Raw sunflower seed pate ( sunflower seeds, garlic, carrot, celery, lemon, parsley, & sea salt ) wrapped in butter lettuce leaves. I used coconut aminos as a dipping sauce.

7:10 pm– Avocado/kale salad

{ Wednesday }

6:00 am ( pre-workout )– Suja Green Supreme

9:00 am– I had a super busy morning and left the house early, so I drank another Green Supreme juice and had some raw almonds I sprouted over the weekend.

12:45 pm– Whole Foods salad bar! This had baby greens, carrot, tomato, onion, chickpeas, beet, purple cabbage, quinoa, & cherry tomatoes. I used olive oil & vinegar for the dressing & added an avocado from the produce section. I also had some flax crackers I bought there.

8:00 pm– Salmon I marinated in miso/tamari/ginger & a little maple syrup. I pan seared it a little coconut oil & Ghee butter with sautéed asparagus & baby bok choy. This meal was delicious.

9:00 pm– Raw coconut almond macaroons I made over the weekend.

{ Thursday }

8:00 am– Chia pudding I prepared the night before ( I mixed Chia seeds, Suja Vanilla Cloud, ground flax in a bowl ). I put this in the fridge & let it thicken overnight, then added raspberries in the morning.

10:00 am– Suja Fiji

11:30 am– Suja Lemon Love

1:15 pm– Albacore Nicoise salad from Herringbone in La Jolla. I had a lunch meeting so I got this salad with seared albacore, dark leafy greens, olive oil, vinegar dressing, & olives.

3:40 pm– Suja Twelve Essentials

7:30 pm– Veggie soup with kale, carrot, celery, tomato, lentils, garlic, onion, Maitake, oyster, & Shitake mushrooms. I made this in less than twenty minutes because I had prepared lentils over the weekend.

{ Friday }

5:20 am ( pre-workout ) – Suja Fuel

8:00 am- Suja Vanilla Cloud poured over homemade raw granola ( 3/4 cup ).

11:50 am– Leftover veggie soup + one whole avocado with Maldon salt.

2:50 pm– Suja Purify

5:00 pm– Suja Lemon Love

9:15 pm– I ordered a big salad with added avocado, Tamari, & olive oil on the side for dressing. I also got four pieces of salmon sashimi & two pieces of sea bass sashimi which I put on the salad. I also had a glass of wine.

As you can see, every day is a little different and I don’t really have set meal times. I also drink A LOT of juice! This helps me stay hydrated and energized & I prefer it over snacks during the day. Hope you enjoyed that snapshot of my meals!

xo,

Annie

Shed That Winter Coat!

[ Detoxing on the go...ten things in my hand, per usu ]

How’s it cleansin’? I hope you’re all excited to shed the winter coat…

I certainly am.

First day recap:

Annie ( the owner of Suja Juice ), Samantha & Casey ( Suja’s PR team ), Weslie ( blogger @ Love Chugs ), Cody ( co-founder of People Water ) & I started a lil group text to document our 3-day detox experience. Between LMFAO at all the absurd text messages ( << when I didn’t check my phone there were 52 from this wild/hilarious group {!!} ) & an unhealthy overuse of Emojis, Annie ended up sharing some real swell information with us weirdos…

& I learned:

Ahem!

+ It’s not weird to NOT be hungry. Why? That happens to most people because you’re really hydrated & getting the nutrients it needs. Hydration is key.

+ The first juice ( ‘Glow’ ) is great for your tummers in the AM. The mint in the green drink soothes the stomach.

+ Drink the last juice three hours before bed.

+ No nuts. The little suckers don’t digest well.

+ If you’re hungry…then EAT! Fruits, greens, sweet potatoes, avocados, Dijon + apple cider vinegar ( for dressing ), broths, & soups. Stay away from animal proteins ( < in the DIY cleanse animal products are ok ). Nix dairy & grains too. Tons of green tea is encouraged.  Juicing is alkalizing. Don’t let certain foods screw that up.

Capisce?

Ok. Spill- if you’re cleansing too, what’s your experience been like so far? Tell, tell.

I hope you’re not late to the party. And if you promised yourself to detox for the NY, don’t be a Flaky McFlakerson & back out. Follow through with what you said you were going to do.
