Happy Valentine's Day! We just wanted to say we love you. Have a happy Friday and a lovely weekend.
Holy Valentine's Day. Is it just me, or has the internet completely flooded with lovey dovey everything? Dearest single friends, don't let this get you down! Being single is fun and don't let all these date night ideas, bouquets, and fancy bling start making you think otherwise. Sure, love is cool, but be patient and soak up your singledom while you have it. Because once it's gone, life sans someone is a heck of a lot different than riding solo.
1. Saturday rolls around and no one there to judge as you cram cold pizza in your face before opening your eyes.
2. No one to steal your covers.
3. You regulate the thermostat.
4. Granny panties? They're comfy as heck.
5. Shaved legs? Who cares!
6. Only you decide what's for dinner.
7. No one to tell you not to buy those shoes.
8. Bedtime's when you say so. And you rock that retainer, girl!
9. No need to speak or answer any questions until after you arrive at work. (This might be my favorite. Silence and coffee until 8:30am is my happy place.)
10. Real boyfriends might be nice, but that made up vision in your mind of Mr. Right- he is absolutely perfect. Why mess that up?
So ladies, when Friday rolls around, give yourself a big hug, lots of love, splurge on some flowers, or a new pair of shoes and remember, that being alone is actually pretty amazing. Right? Plus, you're never really alone. Call up a good friend (who may also be single) and eat chocolate covered strawberries with them!
Get excited, guys. I'm back with another healthy recipe! But when I go healthy, I don't compromise on taste. These little nuggets (let's call them power balls, for fun) taste like dessert, but they're packed with protein and nutrients that will give you a boost of energy without a boost in the waistline.
You're going to need a food processor to make these- or a vitamix. But for hummus, nut butters, these nuggets, it's totally worth the investment. I swear, if I only knew how much I'd love experimenting with my food processor I would have definitely bought a bigger one. These nuggets are great to have around if you need a little pick me up. They're like granola bars, but so much better. Trust me on this one. Warning: I've found friends & coworkers may love these too, and try to steal them.
Handful of dried prunes
Handful of goji berries
2 spoonfuls of almond butter
2 tbsp. cacao nibs
2 tbsp cashews
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp bee pollen (optional)
1 tbsp maca powder (optional)
1/3 cup of flax seeds for rolling
1. Put everything besides the flax seeds in a food processor and blend until goey.
2. Roll goey mixture into balls.
3. Roll balls in flax seeds.
4. Gobble up the goodness.
Ever have those mornings where you just can't figure out what to wear? Most of the time that means jeans, tshirt, cardigan, maybe a scarf- if I'm feeling super fly... Once in a while, that means, a lovely outfit was born. I had the latter of these mornings. I love the pop of color with this yellow sweater, and then the loose fitting tshirt & leggings makes it for one of the comfiest outfit creations of all time. And it's business casual friendly. AND it goes with literally all of my favorite shoes.
But I need your help in deciding, which shoes are best for this gem of a pj-work-wear creation?
Here are the options:

Clearly I got excited about this outfit. Know the feeling?
So, I kind of made it through my January 'cleanse'. I wanted to start off 2014 with a clear mind- so naturally, cleanse time! I didn't have any alcohol for the entire month (phew! so glad that's over!) and I went the first two weeks only eating fruits, vegetables and a whole lot of juice. The second two weeks I planned to cut out gluten, dairy, soy, meat and processed foods, but that didn't work out so much. I ate pretty healthy all month, but after the first two weeks of fiber overload, I had a one night stand with frozen pizza and then had a hard time staying away.
It was the day I added coffee back in, all hell broke loose. You see, when I try to cut out everything under the sun, I find ways to eat other things in excess... like honey and nuts mostly. Too many nuts and too much honey and I promise, I felt like Pooh (pun intended). Three different kinds of nut butters in my fridge right now. Someone went crazy with the food processor, but I'm not naming any names.
So glad February is here. January was interesting and rather trying, but I learned a lot. Mostly that cutting everything out is not the answer. When I wasn't eating a full range of protein, carbs, etc., I was getting massive headaches. Even though I felt lighter when I cut out bread, and cheese and meat, I didn't necessarily feel better. It's all about the balance. And, unfortunately, no matter how well I eat, if I don't combine this healthy eating practice with a healthy exercise regime, I feel far from optimum. So, I joined a yoga studio. I've gone the past four days in a row and I can already feel big changes in my body, or at least a whole lot of soreness.
Funny, how it's easier to instinctually know what my body wants, whether that be sleep, food, water, or some mental stimulation, when I'm moving my body. It's like that just makes too much sense. Like today, my body told me I didn't want a donut after all the bagels and pizza I ate at last night's Super Bowl bash. But then my brain said, but they're from Dunkin Donuts... Guess who won?
I swear, it's all about balance. I'm going to work off those sprinkles in my tree pose tonight!
