Good morning lovies!
I feel absolutely marvelous today! I noticed myself going to bed later and later lately which resulted in me feeling not quite myself during the days, so last night I took a stance and made sure I did my body good and went to bed at 10:30!
During the school year, I like to go to bed around 10:00, but 10:30 is a start!
I had a lovely sleep and feel so rested today! I'm ready to take anything on
I've already had a great chest and triceps workout which also included some core work at the end and now I'm home eating my post workout meal number two (chicken and sweet potato.) Soon, I will get going and finish some things that need to be done before I head back to London on Friday! But, for now, let me share with you some marvelous things because it is Marvelous Monday!
The most marvelous day of the week
Oh my goodness gracious! I think figs are the new love of my life! Chelsea always raves about them, but for some reason they just didn't appeal to me so I never bought them for myself to try before!
I mean really, what do you do with a fig?
Well, I can answer that for you now as I tried my first ever fig this weekend! (Ok, I had about 10 figs – they are amazing!)
I found out that I love figs on their own, on top of my hot cereal, and in smoothies!
Sadly, I finished my batch of figs today after making a fig mountain ontop of my breakfast cereal… This is truly an unfortunate situation since I need to create a recipe using figs for next week's Meatless Monday A – Z!
If anyone near me has a fig I would greatly appreciate your contribution
Gogo Quinoa 4 Grains Hot Cereal
I tried this for the first time this morning. When I have quinoa flakes I usually have them alone, but this is a blend of quinoa flakes (gold and red), amaranth, buckwheat, and chia! I loved it! Especially with the figs
Almond and Cashew Cream
This stuff is awesome! I usually only add almond milk to my coffee, but lately I have been using this instead! It's so thick and just slightly sweet, but it is sugar free! If you see this at your grocery store definitely give it a try! I like to add it to my coffee or pour it over my oats
Reebok Crossfit headband
I think I wore this ever single day since I came home from Boston #sorryimnotsorry
It kind of makes me feel like I can kick your butt if you messed with me
Personally, I have a really hard time getting my hands on these bad boys, so when I saw it at the grocery store yesterday I couldn't resist! I am definitely going to try Tessa's favourite combo – kabocha and peanut butter
I hope you all have a wonderful Monday! Or should I should say marvelous? I'll be back later with a recipe for meatless Monday!
How do you like to eat your kabocha squash?
Is there a piece of clothing or accessory that makes you feel tough?
What is your favourite way to enjoy figs?
