FYI: Yog messes are a great way to start a morning.
1 cup Stonyfield Lowfat Vanilla yog
1 crumbled Cascadian Farms Harvest granola bar
1 sliced naner
2 tbsp. Mighty Maple PB
I can’t help but overdose on nut butter. If that’s the worse OD I face in life however, I think I am doing okay.
Lunchie lunch was bought (ugh, 2nd day in a row going out, which is totes NOT budget-friendly!).
Even if it’s not in the budget, Tofu Panang Curry tastes soooooooo good.
The candy corn? Meh, not so much.
To be honest, the only way I like to eat candy corn is with salted peanuts. It tasted like a salted nut roll. You know you want some of that.
Dinner was a rando stir fry…
1 tbsp. coconut oil
3 kale leaves
1 cup broccoli
large handful spinach
couple dashes garlic powder
smothering of BBQ love
7 Dominex eggplant meatballs
A delicious mess.
After much unproductivity today (besides belting my heart out to Broadway songs on Natalie and I’s well-crafted Pandora Broadway radio station), I met some friends for a wine tasting at an uber-fun wine + coffee house.
A cute place with organic wines? Count this gal IN!
Look at this glass. Multiply it by 8 different wines. That’s how much I drank. It was glorious.
I am a red wine kinda gal. Preferably malbec, pinot noir or cab. After 8 tasting glasses, I was feelin’ it (the wine, that is).
The wine party continued at another fave Madtown joint, where classy drunk food was consumed.
More wine + Italian focaccia, lovingly dipped in olive oil. Gosh, if only I had known how good classy drunk food tasted when I was 19. I mean, come on: bread + olive oil or late-night Taco Bell?
The goods continued with an appetizer sampler platter shared among us – calamari, fried ravioli, zucchini + goat cheese bruschetta and classic bruschetta.
Followed up with a I-know-I-can’t-afford-this-but-I-need-pumpkin-ice-cream-for-dessert.
Trust me, I needed it.
While I stayed with wine the whole night, my friend Brett guzzled some brews all night.
He obviously wanted a shout-out on the blog :).
When it came time to pay, we were treated to the 15% off, “Eric’s a perv,” discount.
He knows the owners.
Alrighty kiddos, I am stuffed and ready to begin working out again tomorrow. It’s been a week of relaxing and indulgences, but it is time to jump back on the clean eating + exercise train! I don’t want to miss my stop, so I am heading to bed in time to wake up for 10:15am Hatha Yoga.
Stay tuned for an awesome Q+A as well as a weekend recap!
What are you up to this weekend? My aunt, uncle and cousins are coming into town tomorrow for a brief visit, so I will be entertaining the troops. Sunday may or may not involve a trip to the mall to go shopping for brown riding boots. Just sayin’…
