We made it to Friday, guys. How was your week? I’m participating in my second Friday Top 3 Favorites, thanks to Kate!
Top 3 Things I ate:
You may have seen this on instagram, but this oatmeal bowl took a little more time to make pretty, but it definitely paid off.
Have ya’ll ever tried the veggie pizza burgers from Trader Joe’s? They have 9 grams of protein and they are SO GOOD. I made a “pizza burger” in a pita and even topped it with blue cheese, avocado and marinara sauce, and it was amazing. You should go buy some STAT.
Cora’s Sweet Potato Breakfast Pizza – As soon as I saw this, I was salivating. My favorites – sweet potato, eggs, avocado – I die. I topped half of mine with honey goat cheese and half with avocado spread. And then an egg (obviously) and some blue cheese crumbles. Alongside my favorite veggies.
Top 3 New Products:
EPSOM SALTS! I have been soaking in Lavendar epsom salt baths since after my race in Charleston where I realized my legs were just dead. Not only do theses salts smell amazing, they are so calming and relaxing and (I think) have made a difference in my soreness!
Compression socks! They are marketed to reduce swelling, fatigue, aching and tightness, and I think they’re helping? Legs feel fresh!
This new Keurig espresso/latte maker – a late wedding gift – LOVE. This has already saved me so much money from ordering my Americano’s and latte’s out.
Top 3 workouts:
White Water Rafting! (more on that below)
10 Mile Run on the Davidson trails in the sunshine, just ampin’ up my Vitamin D!
(PS – you can follow me on Snapchat: @hurdbird)
And the shoutout of the week goes to…
KITCHEN AID! I’ve had their 9 cup food processor for about a year, and it mysteriously STOPPED working about a month ago. It was a bridal shower gift so I didn’t have the receipt. I contacted them and they agreed to send me a NEW replacement one, so long as I send the old one back. Great customer service. This made my week!
I finally framed my graduate diploma! Better late than never? Although it has my maiden name…
A business meeting at the White Water Center. My boss is awesome and we spent a day white water rafting, ziplining, doing obstacles courses and having fun for “team building” and chatting about our business model and moving forward. There were also some yummy appetizers (buffalo chicken nachos and fried pickles) and craft beers. I love my job.
Finding out my Resting Metabolic Rate – so cool!
