A Pop of Color

It looks like you all love nature’s candy just as much as I do. While it could never fully replace chocolate (dark for me)—it’s a great option for satisfying your sweet tooth. First try fruit, and if you’re still not satisfied – break out the Lindt!

It has been a whirlwind week over here! Anyone else feel that way? Exams, challenges, papers…and BOOM it’s Thursday! Oh well, that means that it’s almost the weekend—so I’ll take it.

--------------------------------------------

I love wearing colorful clothes—my closet is filled with pinks, yellows, and corals. I usually start with a neutral base color (black or khaki) and then add a pop of color. Well, I found the perfect accent scarf at H&M this past Sunday.

Black with neon yellow accents? Yes, please.

Wearing color just makes me happy—rain or shine.

Bright colors—yay or nay?

Things have been delicious on the food front.

I always start my day with coffee—so why not combine coffee with breakfast?

Chocolate Banana Coffee Breakfast Smoothie

  • 1 C. chilled coffee
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 scoop Chocolate Amazing Grass
  • 1/4 C. vanilla coconut milk kefir (So Delicious)
  • 1 T. chia seeds
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla Sunwarrior protein powder

Blend it all up and enjoy.

Coffee + Banana = <3

Easy to pack lunches.

The same ingredients, two different ways. From the top: a veggie bowl layered up with broccoli, carrots, tempeh, hummus and nutritional yeast—all mixed up and enjoyed with utensils!

Next up: broccoli, carrots, and tempeh sliced up for easy hummus dippage. <—This is my preferred method of eating when my lunch is enjoyed while cramming for an exam in the library.

Of course, no day is complete without my afternoon larabar. The lemon bar is becoming one of my favorites these days.

When I get a text from Sam saying “meet me at Thai.” The answer is always “on my way.”

Pad Thai with Tofu

This is by far one of my favorite restaurant meals. I’m so glad we discovered this little hole-in-the wall Thai restaurant a few years back—the food is authentic and delicious!

Although I did learn a little lesson from last night—running does not make for a good after dinner activity. Before dinner? Yes. After dinner? Nope, not at all.

You know what does make for a nice after dinner activity? Catching up on my shows. Does anyone else watch Dexter?

I’m about halfway through the most recent season and it’s getting so good!

I originally planned on waiting to watch the fifth season until it came out on Netflix—but I broke down and subscribed to Showtime on Comcast so that I could catch up! The end of the fourth season was way too suspenseful not to!

Shh, don’t tell Sam that we have Showtime again. We cancelled it last year since we weren’t utilizing it. Re-subscribing is as easy as a click of a button. Woops.

Speaking of Sam, the Pipes Challenge is coming along great! Tonight we will complete Week 1, Day 2 of the 100 pushup program.

I have to admit, I’m a bit skeptical that I’ll be able to do 100 consecutive pushups at the end of 6 weeks!  I’m really hoping that my skepticism is proven wrong!

Have a great day guys!

<3 Stefanie
