The Weekend In Pictures!

Happy Monday! I have WAY to much energy this morning so I’m going to use it to knock things out. It’s a short week due to Thanksgiving so I’m ready to be productive before the feasting begins!

Jordan and I went grocery shopping Friday night and he bought me a half-dozen roses! They bloomed on Saturday morning.
We had a lazy Saturday so I knocked out a spin class mid-morning.
Lazy Saturday meant minimal cooking so I grabbed some Chipotle for lunch!
Jordan had to get an oil change so I watched the mid-season finale. THIS SHOW KILLS ME!
We watched some football and we were glad the Aggies won!
I made a pumpkin pie too and we nibbled at it throughout the weekend.
Sunday morning coffee and Law and Order. I love McDonald’s holiday cups!
After church, we hit up Yard House for lunch with my in-laws.
And because we were at the mall, I had to make a stop at Lush!
Oh, and we picked up one of these and took it home.
Kept it super simple with meal prep this week. It doesn’t look like much but this Mexican soup is DELICIOUS!

Short and sweet weekend for us! I hadn’t been sleeping well the past week and I needed some quiet time so I was glad we took this weekend to relax. We will be visiting my in-laws on Thursday and my mom on Friday. Luckily, everyone is spread around Houston so it won’t be too much travel for us.

I hope you have a great Thanksgiving week and stay safe!

The Weekend In Pictures!

Good Morning! I had such a fun filled weekend and I hope you had a a great one too! Now that my race is over and I’m not training for anything, most of the weekends will be going with the flow. Trying to enjoy just a bit of time before it gets crazy for the holidays!

Saturday morning was warm, humid, and very foggy. This was on my way to the gym.

How was your weekend?

Quick and Delicious Smoothies!

I am so excited that it’s Friday because while it’s been a good week overall, I’m looking forward to the weekend! With meal prepping, it’s safe to say I have food always ready. However, if I’m just not feeling it one day, I whip up a quick and delicious smoothie! By packing these smoothies with a bunch of goodies, I’m guaranteed to get my daily nutrients.

Quick and Delicious Smoothies

These smoothies can be made any time of day but I tend to have these in the morning. I like to use Unico Nutrition protein but you can use whatever Vanilla protein you like to use! Also, by clicking that link I do receive a small portion of commission. However, I completely stand by these protein products!

Green Protein Smoothie:
  • 1 tsp of spirulina
  • 1 scoop of protein
  • 1 cup of cashew milk
  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1 scoop of collagen peptides (optional)

Toss all these ingredients in the blender and enjoy! The reason this is such a good smoothie for a breakfast is the star ingredient: spirulina. It turns your smoothie a pretty green flavor but you can’t really taste it. It keeps you satiated for a good part of your day. I like to add collagen peptides in my smoothies to help my joints after long runs or harder workouts.

Berry Delicious Smoothie:
  • 1 scoop of protein
  • 1 cup of cashew milk
  • 1/4 cup frozen blueberries or strawberries
  • 1/4 cup frozen cauliflower rice
  • 1 scoop of collagen peptides (optional)

Blend and enjoy! This smoothie is another of my favorites after a hot workout. The blueberries are just the right amount of sweetness after a workout. By adding the cauliflower rice, you get a thicker shake and an extra serving of veggies!

Are you a smoothie person? What is your favorite type to drink?

In keeping with the healthy eating theme lately, I’ve decided to share one of my new favorites! I tend to eat the same thing for lunch every day but after a while that gets boring. I like to look at other blogs and shop the aisles for inspiration. That’s where I came across Purely Elizabeth granola!

Do you work a 9-5 where you’re stuck at your desk for the majority of your day? Are you always on the go? Whichever situation applies to you, I’m sure you’ve faced that dreaded afternoon craving! I eat many small meals throughout the day. However, sometimes I forget to bring a snack to work. That’s precisely the reason I decided to create an emergency snack kit!

Foods You Should Know About: Tempeh

One of my “resolutions” this year was to eat meatless one day a week. Some weeks weren’t as easy but recently I have been bitten by the cooking bug and have been trying to many protein and meat alternatives! Tempeh and tofu have become some of my go to ingredients when cooking vegetarian meals. Even if you’re not planning to become a vegetarian soon, I would give tempeh a try!

Foods You Should Know About: Quinoa

Now, I don’t think I can consider myself a foodie if there’s certain food groups I will NOT eat. However, I do feel like I can share some of my favorite nutrition foods with you!

This will be a weekly series sharing a new food or ingredient that you should try to incorporate into your diet. This week’s ingredient is: QUINOA! Continue reading Foods You Should Know About: Quinoa
