It was 50 and sunny here today. HEAT WAVE!!!!!!!!
This morning, I even busted out my awesome new lounge chair that I bought using the gift card CSN Stores sent me to use to try out some of their products!
It rocks. Those holes on the sides are so you can flip over and put your arms through to hold a book while lying on your stomach! The headrest even flips up and there’s a space to put your face, like on a massage table. Awesome.
I also celebrated by having lunch al fresco :)
I love lunches with all sorts of fun components like this one. Makes eating more interesting!
First up — a massaged kale salad. My favorite way to eat kale! Just drizzle on some olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper, and rub it into the kale with your hands. It takes away the bitterness and makes it delish!
As you can see, I also topped it with a bit of avocado for some healthy fat action.
Next up — roasted red pepper hummus with a toasted whole wheat pita:
And a big glass of 1% organic milk for a little extra protein power.
This afternoon, a few of my grad school girls and I wanted to go on a hike, but didn’t want to drive anywhere. Solution: hike some of the cute trails near my place!
We had an absolute blast. Especially because we spent half of the hike playing in playgrounds! I’m a firm believer that just because you’re an adult doesn’t mean you should always act like one :)
Enjoy the photo journey of our silliness :)
What an awesome day. I love my friends :)
Time to relax and get a little reading done for school before heading over to a classmate’s place for wine and snacks! We have the day off tomorrow for MLK Day — wooo! So maybe the reading will wait til tomorrow. Heh.
Have a great Sunday!
p.s. I also made some Apple Walnut Crunch Spelt Muffins this morning! They are epic — delicious AND super healthy. Recipe coming this week ;)
I gave some to the girls and they LOVED them!
