May 20th people. How?!

With Memorial Day on the horizon, I think it’s safe to say that Summer is on the way. I just have to disregard the 45 degree windy weather every other day in Chicago. I KNOW 75 degrees in our future. I hope?

This past week was wonderful and went by quick. Lee and I announce the Summer Sweat Series on Monday and we’re thrilled to see such a great response by the amount of people who have joined our FB group. Seriously, you all are lovely. I’ve been busy planning the nutrition plan and all I can say is DELISH. Also, you get to enjoy dessert every night, who could say no to that? Join our FB group here!

Speaking of menus, I made walleye for dinner this past week and paired it with a fresh peach and blueberry arugula salad. I couldn’t remember the last time I had walleye, so as soon as I saw it at Whole Foods, I knew what was happening for dinner. Fabulous, quick and healthy!

In other news, I epically failed at making ice cream yesterday. I tried making a vegan cherry version, which just ended up looking like a reddish brown blob. I plan on trying again this weekend. Any flavor requests you’d like to see?!

This weekend: We have absolutely no plans! I love when weekends are open because we can be spontaneous. I’ll have to work a bit, but I’d really love to go house shopping on Saturday and walk around the city. We’re in the middle of redoing our bedroom and I’ve been on a Pinterest pinning frenzy. Can’t help it, I love interior decorating. I’ll probably redecorate every few years, just because.

Now… let’s get into the favorites from this past week!

I made my first FB live video of my almond flour brownies. It was so much fun and very spontaneous.

This 5-ingredient flourless banana bread. YAS.

The pasta salad to end all pasta salads. Simply beautiful.

Guacamole with an extra green twist. Where those chips at?

Are you just living for the weekend? Really enjoyed this article.

These blueberry glazed doughnut muffins. Like what?! I NEED.

OMG these breakfast potatoes could be everything I’ve ever wanted.

Loving this creamy almond milk mac and cheese. Glorious.

10 amazing pots and planters. Because you know I’m obsessed with my indoor garden.

5 ways to challenge yourself to save money. Saving money allows you to travel & invest.

This beautiful cake. Blueberries + lemon forever and ever.


That’s all I have for you. Hope you have a beautiful weekend! xo.
