Make your own takeout

Hi friends! How’s your day going?

Huge congratulations to my friends who ran the Boston Marathon this morning! Did you, or anyone you know, run today?? I’m so so excited for Sarah, Tina, Janae and Kristin; you are amazing. <3

it’s been an interesting afternoon over here. The Pilot is home sick with food poisoning -I hate that he feels so terrible- and my eyes are bothering me, so I’m in glasses while tears run down my face. Let’s see how spin class goes haha.

At least breakfast was a win,

Pancakes  1 of 1 11

(oat banana blender pancakes!)

BODYPUMP was a beast -a fun beast, but I’m always so sore after a new release!- and Liv and I had a great morning together at her gymnastics class, hitting up Better Buzz and making Play Doh sculptures outside. 

Dinner was pretty glorious last night, too. 😉 

I’ve been really hankering for Chinese food lately, so I added cashew chicken to this week’s meal plan. It’s so easy to make, often using ingredients we already have on-hand, and a healthier version of takeout. While getting takeout is always fun, it is nice to have a say in the ingredients and sodium content of your food. Here’s the quick recipe if you want to give it a try! We also had some not-fried quinoa, which Liv surprisingly LOVED. Note to make it more often!

Hi, I made you some muffins! Don’t let the little green bits freak you out; just some hemp seeds. For these muffins, I decided to make something a little different than my usual fare. Usually I’m all about chocolate and almond butter (like this, this and this!), but with my recent obsession for bright tropical flavors, […]

Hiii! How’s your St. Patrick’s Day going?? To get into the spirit, I played two St. Patrick’s Day-ish songs during spin last night: 1) “Whiskey in the Jar” (standing climb with tempo work)   2) “Lord of the Dance.” This was the last song of class, and everyone seemed to get a kick out of […]

This is what happens when I say I like Daylight Savings: -we all have an impossible time waking up and getting out the door this morning -I forget Liv’s gymnastics outfit at home -I step in dog poo. Isn’t it so violating when that happens? Some good things from the day: -BODYPUMP was awesome this morning. […]

Lots of seafood ahead… But first, these bunnies! I picked them up at Home Goods as an effort to add some Easter-ish decor and they look just like the foil-covered chocolate bunnies. Sadly, there is no chocolate inside, but they’re pretty cute. How was your weekend? Hope you had a great one! On Friday, we […]
