My Favorite Things…

January 20, 2012

Okay, seriously, who didn’t think of  Sound of Music when you read the title?

I LOVE this movie! Who doesn’t? My favorite scene is weirdly the puppet one, with the goats. Yea… I don’t know why, I think I always wished I could be a puppeteer. I actually had a giant bird puppet that I got at Worlds of Fun one year. I wonder what happened to that…

And if any of you are confused as to what Worlds of Fun is… well, we can’t be friends anymore. The best/worst amusement park ever. In Kansas City. Be jealous.

I digress.

The point of this post was to share some of my favorites right now!


Favorite Blog Posts

Peas and Thank You – an old post but a great commentary on children’s food

Bites and Bliss – A great commentary on how people should change their lifestyle rather that solely depending on medication. And Paula Deen.

Best Body Fitness – this is a great post by Tina about how to eat healthy and with a healthy mentality. This one really hit home for me! Definitely check out her site, I LOVE Tina and her blog!


Favorite Products

No Zit Sherlock – I had a Sephora gift card and ended up buying these Acne system for my skin. I am awful at taking care of my skin so I thought I’d give this a try. It’s already looking better and it’s only been 2 weeks!

No 'Zit' Sherlock Complete Acne System ($47 Value)

elf Eye Shadow – While taking care of my skin, I’m also attempting to wear makeup more often… Haha I think I’ve become a tomboy. I love elf because it’s really cheap so great for experimenting with new colors!

Recipes I Want to Try

Pumpkin Protein Egg White Puffs (say that 5 times fast) on Daily Crumb (the picture is from Kathleen’s post, don’t they look delicious!? And by the way, the temperature she put up for Chicago is correct… very correct. Brrr)

Over Easy Savory Oatmeal with Kale on Clean Eating Chelsey (picture from Chelsey’s blog!) I’ve made savory oats before, but never with an egg. It sounds so simple, yet so delicious!

Quinoa Quiche on Hungry Hungry Hippie (again, photo from Elise’s blog). This looked so simple and perfect for one person! I am DYING to give this one a try!


Recipes You Should Try!

One of my Protein Cupcakes! Seriously, to die for and so quick and easy to make! Tons of flavors!

Or, you can try out the original recipe from Ashley’s blog, My Food N Fitness Diaries, where I got the original idea from her Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Protein Pizookie!

Julie Go Lean’s Egg White Oats that I tried the other day! Although I made a bit of a mess making them, and burnt my fingers…, I really liked the idea! Try it out!

Jamie Eason’s Turkey Muffins! Seriously, I have been eating these every day this week and I’m still not tired of them. They are SO GOOD! Also healthy and full of protein! Win, Win!

    Oh Sound of Music how i love thee! That’s hilarious that your favorite scene is the puppet one. I always disliked that one kind of. One of my favorite parts is when they sing “So long, farewell” and when little Gretl sings “The sun has gone to bed and so must I…” Okay gotta watch soon 🙂

    Those turkey muffins look fantastic! What a great (and quick) source of protein!

    Thank you for mentioning the Paul Deen post! We can only hope she’ll eventually change her diet rather than setting such a bad example to the rest of the country to simply turn to drugs.

    I love the motivational quotes! Those have been getting me through tough workouts this week. Things like “limitations only exist if we let them” really helps put it into perspective!

    Such a lovely post! This week I’m loving home made raw kale chips, by best friend just being awesome and feeling super productive at work!

    • January 21, 2012 2:32 pm

      I made a bunch of kale chips yesterday! I wish I had a dehydrator though, I have to make mine in the oven and it’s just not the same!
