(psssssst…did you check out this week’s WIAW yet?!)
A day off means lots of things…specifically getting to do things you normally don’t have time for. Lots of perks and possibilities come with free time. And I like it.
Perks and possibilities people…these were mine:
-Enjoying the beautiful sunshine with my Ella-
It was seriously gorgeous this morning…not one cloud in the sky.
-Sneaking in a nice morning run-
I miss morning workouts on school days!
-Running all kinds of errands for my mom-
Which may not seem like a “perk” but it means I get to take my bike out for a little ride around town…and that’s fun for me! Especially since it’s January and I am still able to ride my bike!
-Wandering the aisles of Target-
[had to resist buying these!]
[but couldn’t resist this…Bob and I are besties]
I literally cannot leave that place without buying something! Darn you Target.
-Having time to prepare some more “gourmet” meals-
Yummy tuna salad and a smoothie! Both take more time than I usually have during the week to prepare.
-Catching up and getting ahead on some school work-
Always a good thing!
-Being able to round up some of my recent faves for a little FOODS OF THE MOMENT POST!-
That’s right…its back everyone!
THE FOODS OF THE MOMENT!
I recently found these really awesome crisp breads made with wheat bran and ever since I have been wanting to experiment on my own with it! I found this HUGE bag on sale for TWO DOLLARS are my local health food store! Such a steal! Now I just have to find something to make with it! I definitely want to try out this recipe. Do you guys have any ideas?
[cinnamon date is my favorite ]
I reviewed for Manna Organics a while back, but after my huge stash ran out I didn’t really buy another loaf for a while. Well the hiatus is over! On a whim my mom actually wanted to try out this bread again (she didn’t really try it the first time). So we bought two loaves and they are already LONG gone! We’re all obsessed! My mom and I love the chewy, dense texture and sweet flavor! She seriously could not believe these loaves have such simple ingredients. I would love to try and recreate my own manna bread!
You all know I LOVE millet bread! But I have never actually had millet just cooked up on its own. In the newest issue of Clean Eating, there was a delicious looking recipe for Millet Patties. So I needed to get some millet….so happy I did because it is seriously delicious! So different than other grains I’ve tried! I highly recommend it if you’re looking for a change!
Okay…I am totally a cocoa convert. I’ve gone through two of these containers in the past month (not sorry ). Ever since I switched over from carob, I seriously cannot get enough! I crave this stuff like crazy and put it on every thing!!! My favorite way to use it is on a fruit cereal bowl! The bitterness of the cocoa goes SO well with juicy, sweet fruit and creamy almond milk!
What interesting foods are you loving right now?
I am taking more APP suggestions for the iPhone!!! Know of any good ones?
I am loving instagram and the pinterest app (yay for pinning on the go!)!
How do you like to spend days off?
I hate to admit it, but I am about ready for bed! This WHOLE week I;ve been turning in early. Guess my body is just craving a bit more sleep than usual! Nothing beats hitting that pillow when you are physically exhausted though…feels so good.
Have a restful relaxing night! You deserve it.
