Let’s Catch Up: Food, Fitness, & Life.

01-IMG_1979 Hey there! It’s been a while since we’ve just chatted. You know about life, fitness, and non-recipes.

Sometimes we have to do that. To just catch up. I hope this doesn’t bore you.

First let me start out by saying that I LOVE salad bars. All of the healthy quinoa salads, kale galore, and every veggie you could imagine is a dream.

Usually I tend to go vegetarian at the salad bars but if I’m extra hungry I’ll get a little chicken. Then there’s always spinach, kale, and romaine for a bit of crunch. I top my salad with chickpeas, grape tomatoes, olives, red peppers, peas and mushrooms. Oh and red onion! I adore red onions. Lastly I drizzle a bit of red wine vinegar and sometimes a dash of sesame oil. TOTAL NOMS.

Few things are better than salad bars.

Except for chocolate.

My favorite is the Intense Dark Cabernet Matinee. It has a hint of wine and blackberry flavor.

SO SO GOOD. What’s your fav?

I”m very fond of Greek Yogurt. Actually no, I would say obsessed.

Here’s a fun twist on it I found. YUMMY.

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!

Of course, my family requested that I make my brown butter and sea salt chocolate chip cookies. Somehow we ‘forgot’ to bring them to the Christmas Eve party we were attending. However, I’m pretty sure they meant to leave them back home so that they could eat them all.

Breakfast — why am I so obsessed with it? I appreciate it. I wake up for it. I even crave it at night! Brinner (breakfast for dinner) is now a crucial part of my diet! My new obsession is skinny french toast with peanut butter and maple syrup. I’m thinking about adding bananas next time. Or bourbon? Yes, probably bourbon.

I seriously might have to create a how-to just on that french toast.

Fashion wise, cranberry colored jeans are totally the way to go. Except when you spill chocolate donut sprinkles all over them; then bring on the black. Or just get a napkin and stop eating donuts like I should.
