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!

Lauryn Evarts talks with Suja co-founder, Annie Lawless about diet tips and tricks for weight loss.

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

Hi. This post is a little late.

We’ve been shooting our YouTube channel ( << like us! ) all day! Lots of work. But lots of fun. Can’t wait to share it with all you babes.

Tomorrow the cleanse starts…I’m so ready to detox my body of holiday crap. It’s sort of like a restart button. You know?

So anyway, I’m looking so forward to shocking the shit out of my system. Ya with me?

Hope so ; ).

It’s going to be easy/painless because Annie, Weslie, Sam, & I are with you every step of the way.

Change your lifestyle in 2013- it’s not rocket science. Promise yourself to eat clean, drink tons of water, & sweat. Kickstart it by cleansing!

Love.L

Mini DeLites: Tha, Tha, Thanksgiving!!!

Although Thanksgiving was amaze, I still felt like shit the next day. I figured I’d drank too much bubbly, but it was actually a full-blown ‘food hangover.’

On Black Friday, I ran into a girlfriend who told me she didn’t drink alcohol the night before, & still felt like crap. She normally eats super healthy, so the Thanksgiving feast left her feeling sick.

I’m used to clean eating, so an indulgent day like Thanksgiving really threw me off track. All of the stuffing/mashed potatoes/pumpkin roll/cookies/blah, blah, blah shocked my system. AND I’ve felt bloated all weekend–!!!

Ew.

The holidays really know how to pack on the LB’s. So. I’ll be busting ass alllllll week. You play, you pay.

Take the next few days to eat super clean; indulging is fine, but try to balance your diet like a checkbook.

Last week…you probs let loose.

This week, not so much.

Love.L
