Three Things I’m Loving

So it’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve done one of these but I’m back!

However, this will just be short and sweet because I have a  lotttt to do between now and my final tomorrow at 8! (woohoo- can you sense my sarcasm). But then my hardest final is done with and I have a couple days before my next (and last) one.

Here we go:

1) Mugs

I’ve always been a fan of mugs as opposed to coffee cups for my coffee so when I plopped myself down at Starbucks to studying for a while, I go my coffee  ‘for here’ and was in complete bliss with my mug.

3) Sweet Potatoes

I’ve always been a fan but it seems like I just can’t get enough lately. While I’m definitely up for experimenting ( like this recipe), you can’t beat a quick and easy dinner of a baked sweet potato

What are you loving?

Have a wonderful weekend!

WIAW: Plenty to Eat

Happy Wednesday everyone!

How’s your week going? Mine has seem to drag on so far but today’s my last day of class and all of the studying hasn’t been helping the week pass quickly.

Monday wasn’t quite as busy as usual but I did have an evening exam so it was nice to have a bit of extra time to study. Don’t worry, there was plenty of procrastination in there too ;).

Thanks again to Jenn for hosting WIAW! Hopefully this month I’ll share some of my favorite holiday recipes with healthy spins on them!

My breakfast was par for the course with an orange before yoga and a hot steaming bowl of oatmeal after. This oatmeal was topped with almond butter, craisins, and a bit of chocolate powder.

I also had an apple and a handful of goldfish as a mid morning snack.

Lunch was ham on hummus topped toast and my favorite beet and (laughing cow wedge) cheese salad. I just love the combo of flavors in the salad and it’s such a wonderful mix.

Mid afternoon I had a yogurt topped with granola.

Dinner was eaten pretty early before my exam and was roasted cauliflower, chicpeas and Trader Joe’s risotto left over from Sunday. Well balanced with a gingerbread man too!

Later that evening was a snack fest of a delicious ganache topped butterscotch bar, a almond butter microwaved banana and several more handfuls of goldfish. My banana was holiday-fied with some white chocolate chips sprinkled on top.

Once I started snacking, I just couldn’t stop.

Back to the books for me now…

Happy WIAW and enjoy your day!

Happy Friday!

Ready for the weekend? I am. I plan on being lazy catching up on some t.v. and maybe enjoying some slightly warmer weather while I still can. Last night I went to my favorite butts and gutts class and am feeling oh so sore today so hopefully I can still move this weekend ;).

This cooling of the weather makes me want everything to be warm and cuddly so that just happens to be what I’m enjoying at the moment.

1) Popcorn and Hot chocolate.

I happen to love this pairing as a good evening snack. I don’t know why but chocolate and popcorn just taste so good together!
2) Warm fuzzy socks

I do not usually enjoy sleeping with socks on but it’s kinda been a necessity of late. If I had a choice, I’d probably keep on these socks for eternity… but then my feet would really start to smell.

3) Pumpkin Apple Muffins

I used this recipe and am loving the texture and taste of the ingredients. I doubt they’ll make it through the weekend.

Have a great weekend!
