Lower Body Blast Workout & Food Log Friday

Hey ya’ll!

I am a little behind on posts this week so I thought I would combine an awesome workout with Food Log Friday.

I’ll be honest with you. I am a little behind because I had way too much fun at a local food and wine festival last Sunday. There were hundreds, freakin’ hundreds, of wines and champagnes to taste as well as beer and bourbon. I really went for it and probably tried 99 wines/champagnes and some bourbon for good measure. It was an epic Sunday Funday followed by an epic three day hangover.

Food Log Friday & A Step-by-Step Guide to Super Nutrient-Dense Smoothies

Now that the weather is getting warmer, I find myself craving smoothies. Smoothies are considered a “health” food but with the wrong ingredients your smoothie may be as healthy as a Butterfinger Blizzard.

Happy Friday!

What are you up to this weekend? You know what you should do?

Go see Beaty & the Beast 3-D! I went last night with a friend who was seeing it for the second time. It’s that good!

For those of you, like me, who saw the animated version one million times as a child, prepare to be amazed. It blows plain old animation out of the water. The 3-D element is amazing and Emma Watson is a perfect Belle! Josh Gad plays Gaston’s sidekick LeFou. He his hilarious as always but it’s so hard not picture him as Olaf the whole time. My point is – go see it for yourself!

Lox & No Bagel Egg Cups

Happy New Year’s Eve!!!

Are you drunk yet?

This recipe is inspired by my husband who has to have lox and bagels with chive and onion cream cheese, red onion and tomato for every day that is remotely special. Birthdays, Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Sunday, Tuesday…all the days. It’s good to know what you want.

In order to clean lox and bagels up a little, I nixed the bagel. But don’t be sad. I put all the other good stuff into an egg cup and topped it with chive goat cheese. These tasty egg cups are great for breakfast or a snack. I’ll be eating them tomorrow morning. Yay 2017!!
