I don't know what I look more forward to in the morning, my nice steaming cup of tea or the little bits of inspiration on each tea bag!!
This morning for breaky I made a GREEEEEN Monster - that wasn't green, it looked more like swamp water... mmmmmmm how I love my swamp water!
It had frozen strawberries, loads of spinach, 1/2 a nanner, hemp seeds, honey and water.
I'm trying to cut down on a few calories here and there, plus we go through WAY to much almond milk.
I should take out stocks in Almond Breeze hehe...
Here is a close up of the hemp seeds - I love a little substance in my smoothies..
It was good!!!!
Yesterday I took a little drive to the City that is about 45 mins from here. I dislike driving very much but guess what? That is where my school is, so starting in September I will be driving there EVERY DAY!! ick.
At least there are beautiful views. They were taken while driving... I promise I was being safe!!
This is a little bit of the ocean. The cruise ships pass through here on their way to Alaska!!
The beautiful sun....
Then mountains and farm land!!
I promise I will take you on a tour of my cute little town soon!! So many beautiful little spots.
After the drive, I met up with Dave for shopping and lunch (He works in that town too)
I was hunting for a new yoga mat and found a great one at Winners.
I love pink!!
It cost $24 and I got the mat, a stretchy band and a pilates video.
I also bought some christmas bulbs and yoga DVD
Lunch... lunch was AMAZING!!
I tried sooooo hard to remember to take a picture... but I forgot until I ate half and it looked messy, but it was quinoa tabbouli (yum) with chicken, avacado, cucumber and tomatoes.
It was so good. I love being able to eat at restarants where there are healthy choices.
When we got home I had 1/2 a beer with clamato ~YUM~
Or should I say clamato with 1/2 a beer! haha...
And we made dinner. Lime marinated chicken, french fries (bad, that's 2 days in a row, at least they were baked), brocolli and califower. YUM!! I was full after my beer, so I only ate the fries and veggies!
I also forgot the other day to show you my YUMMY breaky.
A bun with sundried tomatoe mayo, sliced tomatoe, scrambed egg with kale and green onion.
It was yum!!
We are off to find a Christmas tree today ... which is getting me in the mood for Christmas.
I am thinking of starting my christmas baking... I want to make these, but I am hoping to make them a bit healthier.
Peanut Butter Cups (Reeses)
- 1 11-12 ounce bag chocolate chips
- 2 tbsp shortening
Melt chocolate chips and shortening. Fill paper muffin cups ¼ full and spread chocolate around the sides. Place in freezer to harden.
- 1 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup icing sugar
- 1 tbsp butter, melted
Filling: Mix 3 ingredients and chill. Roll in balls and place in cups. Pour melted chocolate over top. Chill until set.
Do you think I could sub coconut oil for the shortening??
I am also going to test out OhSheGlows pumpkin pie I don't like pumpkin pie much, but this looks good!!
What do you make for yummy treats for Christmas? This is my first time baking for Christmas, so I need some ideas/inspiration.
Have a great day !!!
