When you’re a entrepreneur, every day is different than the one before. There’s a new and exciting opportunity around every digital corner. While Caitlin and Danielle are always on the GO, the Dolls are careful to live every moment to the fullest, taking nothing on this beautiful earth for granted. Keeping the Dolls properly nourished is a key component to success.
Nourishment plays a very important role in living a productive lifestyle and is a very special part of our day. The simple act of enjoying nutrients fuels of bodies and can make or break the Dolls’ day. This is a crucial component to stay strong between workouts and teaching yoga class, wardrobe fittings, photoshoots, meetings, philanthropy work, events, instagram-ing, all-the-while maintaining a personal social life and home life. This can all feel like a lot when you’re hungry!
Ever wonder what a Day for a Doll looks like? Here’s a sneak peak at a typical day for us from Tuesday, July 11th:
- 5-6am: Morning meditation and meal
- 6:30 – 7:30am: Caitlin instructs an outdoor yoga flow
- 7:30 – 8:30am: Dani teaches a spa yoga practice
- 9:00 – 10am: Personal workout with OTG Bootcamp
- 10:30 -11:30am – Get Ready for day and protein shake
- 12 – 1 pm: Photoshoot pull at Rebecca Minkoff on Oak Street
- 1-3 pm: Photoshoot in Grant Park
- 3-4pm: Enjoy a quick and easy meal
- 4-5 pm: Get Ready for the evening
- 5-6:30: Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Meeting
- 6:30 -8pm: Restaurant opening
Eating what is nutritional when it seems we have very little time to take an actual break feels impossible sometimes. Nutrition is very important to Caitlin and Danielle. The Dolls have said this before and will say it again (and probably again), health is wealth and without it we have nothing.
We were lucky enough to learn more about Tai Pei at an event in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood. These frozen Asian entrees have quickly become a Dollhouse favorite and have helped us satisfy cravings on the busiest of days.
The best part of these single-serve entrées are all the new recipes which include clean ingredients, new savory sauces and flavor-infused rice; all free from preservatives, artificial flavors and colors. The magic continued when CC and D learned that most of the meals cook in under 6 minutes and meet the doll requirements to be low in calories and high in protein.
Caitlin’s Favorite: Orange Chicken has 13 Grams of Protein and 480 Calories.
Dani Dolls Favorite: Chicken Low Mein has 15 Grams of Protein and 300 Calories
Dolls Snack Favorite: 9oz Chicken Pot Stickers has 12 grams of Protein and 240 calories
