Back 2 normal.

[Toast with banana, Nuttzo (a Christmas present from Karen!), chias and clem]




Followed a few hours later by a Stonyfield fruity yogurt topped with Cville Cluster


And an apple!



Greens + beans for dinner!



Almost. We have zero veggies in our fridge!

I LOVE Nuttzo! I usually end up mixing nut butters together on my toast anyway, so Nuttzo makes it a lot easier :) Love your coffee mug btw!

Vacations are definitely fun.. but getting back to normal is great too! I love routine.. and that is what being home does for you!

after 6 days in NOLA and a few new years celebrations, i’m looking forward to my “normal” too. for a week, at least…


4 Jamie @ Don't Forget the Cinnamon January 1, 2012 at 3:30 pm

This looks awfully similar to my breakfast this morning!

I love the holidays but I’m so happy to be getting back into a normal routine, too! My body can’t take much more celebrating! Happy New Year! :)

NUTTZO!!!! Haven’t had that in ages!!! So delicious!!!


7 Kate January 1, 2012 at 3:42 pm

It feels good to eat healthy after a vacation! I ate so much crap over the past few weeks that I’m actually craving vegetables today.


8 Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries January 1, 2012 at 3:44 pm

i love the feeling of getting back to “normalcy” when you return from a vacation!! glad you’re home safe!


9 Kinley @ Better Off Barefoot January 1, 2012 at 3:44 pm

I need a box of clementines! I keep forgetting to buy one when I’m grocery shopping!!


10 Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) January 1, 2012 at 4:07 pm

Greens and beans for me too with pork for the boys. I have to be a good southern girl! Happy New Year Kath!


11 Blessing @ Working Mom Journal January 1, 2012 at 4:09 pm

Oh my, you are one energetic lady. Already back in the swing of things.


12 Emily January 1, 2012 at 4:17 pm

Cute mug! I love how unique ALL of your dishes are!


13 Samantha January 1, 2012 at 4:30 pm

Happy New Year!

Your trip looks like it was a lot of fun.
That being said, I’m glad you’re home so that I have some seriously scrumptious and inspiring meals to look forward to. Ha! =)


14 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga January 1, 2012 at 4:46 pm

After traveling, there is nothing like eating that first fresh green salad at home.

AFTER you go to the grocery store since there’s usually nothing left in the fridge that’s fresh (or if you’re like me, that one lone bag of carrots or mushy apple that’s been there for god knows how long)

Welcome home!


15 Hillary [Nutrition Nut on the Run] January 1, 2012 at 5:00 pm

normal feel so good sometimes. so good :)


16 Deva @ Deva by Definition January 1, 2012 at 5:06 pm

After the past two weeks, I am eager to be back to normal, starting today. Lots of veggies, fruits, and protein!


17 Rebecca @ Naturally Healthy and Gorgeous January 1, 2012 at 5:22 pm

It’s always a great feeling to get back to a routine after a vacation, especially with healthy eating!


18 Maria @ Sinfully Nutritious January 1, 2012 at 5:25 pm

Normal. That is a word I can get comfortable hearing again. So much celebrating in such a short time. Today was our day to transition out of holiday food back into REAL FOOD. Boy, did it feel good. You really do forget how good a plain ol’ salad can be. Or even how sweet a simple clementine is when finishing a meal.

Here’s to normal! Cheers!


19 Roxanne January 1, 2012 at 5:27 pm

You’re home, I will now have to remember to read your blog 3x a day… 😀


20 Brittany @ Eating Bird Food January 1, 2012 at 5:59 pm

Home sweet home! I had beans and greens for lunch today – lots of luck for 2012. :)


21 Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count January 1, 2012 at 6:10 pm

Haven’t tried Nutzo, but I hear it’s tasty!


22 Stephanie @ Ultra Ambitious January 1, 2012 at 6:16 pm

I have to say, I’m a little jealous of your beautiful new porch and all the beautiful pictures you take out there. It looks so bright and inviting, definitely gave me plenty of ideas for when I get my own place. Looks like your enjoying being home. I always love vacations and getting away from the day to day stuff, but it makes me appreciate home so much more too :)
Happy New Year Kath!


23 Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio January 1, 2012 at 6:20 pm

I agree with other commentators… vacationing is great, but returning home and back to normal can sometimes be just as good. I’m kinda excited to get back to work tomorrow!


24 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats January 1, 2012 at 6:41 pm

2 breakfast meals sounds good to me! best meal of the day.


25 Katie January 1, 2012 at 6:54 pm

I don’t think there’s a better feeling than coming home and getting back to a routine after a long vacation. Enjoy your greens and beans for dinner!


26 Susan H. @ The Food Allergy Chronicles January 1, 2012 at 8:26 pm

Ahhh…the comforts of home! Just back home myself…looking forward to laying my head down in my own bed…I have come to the conclusion that futons are not meant for more than a few nights!


27 Angel7 January 1, 2012 at 8:34 pm

Back to everyday life, and the grind, huh? :)


28 Lexi @ A Spoonful of Sunshine January 1, 2012 at 9:49 pm

I went the same route today–cleaning all aspects of my life and fruit…lots of fruit :)


29 Hollie January 1, 2012 at 11:05 pm

Please say cville cluster will be on open sky soon! I have been craving it so badly and our great harvest doesn’t carry it!


30 KathEats January 2, 2012 at 9:23 am

Hoping so!


31 Lexie January 2, 2012 at 12:20 am

I’ve never heard of Nutzo before; can I ask what it is? =)


32 KathEats January 2, 2012 at 9:24 am

It’s a super crunchy multi-nut-and-seed butter. Also on the expensive side, but good!!


33 Khushboo January 2, 2012 at 12:29 am

Simple, normal food tastes SO good after a week away from regular eating!
