A Little April Update

I feel like I have been totally neglecting my blog for the past week! I’m so sorry I haven’t had any original recipes recently. The craziness all started when I posted my new “Eat More Rabbit Food” shirts for sale. Thanks to all of my adorable little bunnies, you have kept me super busy in the packing and shipping department! The first day I listed my shirts, I sold over 300 orders! OH MY GOJI!

Packing Eat More Rabbit Food Shirt ordersGift with purchase guarding all of the packages! Just kidding, you can’t have him, I am obsessed with my little nugget, Teddy!

I cannot thank you enough for all of your support! I love that two years later I’m still selling “Eat More Rabbit Food” shirts. I’ve even noticed repeat customers since I first started my blog! Ahhh it’s the coolest thing!!! I love you guys so much!

I couldn’t even believe my eyes when the lavender shirts sold-out within the first hour! I contacted my supplier, but they are completely out of stock of the lavender oversized shirts, so unfortunately I won’t be able to get more. Hopefully they will be making more one day, since it’s def a fav color of my little bun buns!

Selling Eat more Rabbit Food Shirts

So after I packed up the first day’s orders, Clare Crawley from The Bachelor posted a picture wearing my white “Eat More Rabbit Food” shirt on Instagram and a huge rush of orders came in my inbox! If you guys didn’t already know, Clare is super passionate about healthy eating! She makes green smoothies all the time! All of the rabbit food definitely pays off, she looks so radiant and fit!

Safe to say, April has been an amazing month so far, and I am so thankful for all of my readers! I will be posting recipes ASAP after I get the next batch of orders out : )
Love you guys!
Here’s a little glimpse into what I’ve been up to!

Fresh ProduceI went to a local grocery store called Gower’s Direct and loaded up on fresh produce to make juices and smoothies. Their prices are unreal! All of this was $20.06! 2 ruby red grapefruits, 1 oro blanco grapefruit, 4 lemons, bunch of 6 bananas, 10 Fuji apples, ginger root, 5 bunches of kale, 2 bunches of celery, 1 pineapple, and 4 cucumbers!

Cucumber Lemonade JulieI made tons of juice all week long. One of my favorites is my Sweet Cucumber Lime Juice!

Sweet Cucumber Lime Juice
Serves 1

1 lime
1/2 cucumber
1/4 pineapple
1 Fuji apple

Juice and enjoy over ice!

Vegas High RollerI also went to Las Vegas with a few of my best friends for a little weekend getaway. It’s only a 4 hour drive from Southern California, so it’s fun to go for a weekend. We got to ride “The High Roller” which is the world’s largest observation wheel at 550 feet high!

Julia's first spin classI’m still spinning 6 days a week at Full Psycle and bringing new friends to try it out all the time! My friend Julia is totally hooked now!!!

Polar RC3 GPS HRMMy friend Brett’s cat, Tuna is never impressed with my hard work at spin. hahaha.

Eating a Pitaya Bowl from NekterStill obsessed with Pitaya Bowls from Nekter! I wore my hair straight for the first time in YEARS! Actually loving it haha.

Avocado Snack Andddd still obsessed with avocado with salt, pepper, and lemon juice, mashed onto whole wheat toast!

Kayleigh's weddingLast weekend I went to my friends Brett & Kayleigh’s wedding! Here is a photo from the big day with my other friends Brett, Michael, and Kevin!

Jessica's 1st Bridal ShowerLast Sunday was my sister’s first bridal shower! Yes, you read that right, she is having multiple showers because she is extremely loved! haha. Not to toot my own horn, but toot toot, I totally nailed it on that ribbon bouquet that she will use for her wedding rehearsal! Maid of Honor extraordinaire!

Jessicas-Shower-DecorMy mom’s friends threw the most gorgeous shower. I cannot even begin to tell you how lucky and blessed my family is to have such wonderful friends. My mom’s friends always give my sister and I so much love!

Vita Coco ShipmentVita Coco also caught wind of my addiction to Coco Cafe and using coconut water in smoothies, so they surprised me with a huge shipment of coconut water!!! Thank you Vita Coco, I love you guys!

So as I mentioned earlier, more RFFMBT original recipes will be coming soon!
Love you bun buns!

Health & Happiness

    Hi Catherine! I love reading your life posts! If I just wanted recipes, I’d buy a cook book. I’ve been a big fan of your blog since you started. When you went “off the air” for a while I got really sad and checked back frequently to see if you’d come back to your blog and I’m really glad you did! You seem really happy and healthy and it’s such an inspiration! Thanks for doing what you do! You seem like such a sweetheart & gorgeous inside & out. Keep on blogging away! :)

    Please keep updating us with these types of posts. It’s so wonderful to read all of your posts, it makes your blog what it is, honest and inspirational!:) Your blog is my favourite ever, I can’t tell you how positive and uplifting I find it. I work in a health store in Ireland and write down the name of your blog for all the customers who come into me with negative self image, generally wanting to be healthier and those who have a love and interest in cooking.I’ve been been checking your blog out weekly for the last year, I think I found you when researching food that was healthy and safe for my pet bunnies to nibble on :)
    Anyway, very long post, just wanted to say thanks for the honesty and positivity.

    Catherine,

    Congrats on all the rabbit food success! Ps. I LOVE your watermelon headband, where is it from? I NEED one.

    PSS. I love your “real” blogs, but also your recipe blogs. Rabbit food keeps my friend and I connected in sharing juices/smoothies recipes, thanks :) also, do you know much about pea protein?

    Katherine, your posts are very inspirational. Like so many others have said here, you are genuine and that is so refreshing. By sharing your struggles and successes with us and being so honest, you have really helped me to keep food, exercise, and body image in the right perspective and motivated even if I slip up here and there. You are as cute as a button and super photogenic too! Yes keep up the personal posts and pics and recipes! Being from Ohio it is always fun to hear about your California lifestyle too. Thank you for the awesome blog. I’ve shared it with several friends.

    Hi Catherine!!

    Yes, I love getting updates about what it is you are out and about doing. Hearing about your favorite products or whatever is entertaining, and interesting, so please keep updating us. (in response to your PS)

    And I’m hoping to some day not have to wear plus sizes, but in the meantime, could you make a shirt in a larger size??? This bunny would LOVE one, or ten!!

    I love these posts. I think I actually prefer them to the recipe posts (but I still like those too!).

    Cathy’s comment got me thinking,you should make a RFFMBT cookbook! Do you have any favorite cookbooks? Perhaps you could do a post on this.

    Love your blog. Keep the great work!
