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 get to do cool things for work. Like hang out with this guy!
I recently attended the BlogHer Food conference in Austin, Texas. It was a complete blast! I ate ice cream sandwiches the size of face, listened to established bloggers speak, met Joy the Baker (my baking inspiration), and so many talented women who love food just as much as I do.
I roomed with Christy from The Girl Who Ate Everything, Carrian from Oh Sweet Basil, and Kristy from Sweet Treats and More. I cannot tell you how much fun we had staying up late, laughing, and eating way too many Udi’s Snickerdoodles cookies (GO BUY THEM).
I already miss them terribly so please make sure you check out their fantastic food blogs!
Here’s a salad I devoured in Austin. Along with a basket of chips (not pictured).
After the trip, I kept thinking about how blessed I am. To be doing what I love, and to meet others who encourage and inspire me.
Other than that, here’s what else I’ve been up to:
Yoga. LOTS and LOTS of yoga. It keeps me sane.
