I’ve got so many wonderful things to share with you today but first, I know some of you are dying to hear who won the About Time Whey Protein Giveaway! Drumroll please….. Congrats Sara at Fitcupaker! Message me your details when you get a chance please 🙂
Marvelous Monday is hosted by the wonderful Katie at Healthy Diva Life and as always, a huge thanks to her!
So, let’s talk about some marvelous weekend happenings.
Our weekend started off great with a nice mellow evening at home complete with fresh, Paleo Margaritas!
- 1 shot Blanco Tequila
- Juice from 1 lime
- Juice from 1 small orange or half a larger one
- Club soda or sparkling mineral water
- In a shaker, mix together the tequila, lime juice and orange juice. Strain into a glass with ice and top with club soda or sparkling mineral water. Enjoy!
Someone figured out how to crack them open pretty good on his own!
He was loving them and kept asking for more.
Dinner was delicious avocado stuffed burgers from Civilized Caveman with sweet potato fries. Yum!
He is quite the character lately!
Saturday the hubby had to go into work for the morning so I got up early with him and got in a quick workout before cleaning and hanging out with The Nugget.
Grandpa and Grandma came down around 2:00 so we visited with them then got ready and headed to my cousins for The Electric Run!
Even though it was a run, we figured with it being at night and the expected large crowd (10,000+ people) we wouldn’t be doing all that much running. So we started our afternoon with a margarita before grabbing some food at one of our favorite sushi spots.
I had the Sea Steak with Daikon radish and a gluten-free sauce. Unfortunately not soy free but oh well!
Then we ventured to the event! Here’s just a peak at what the starting point wait was like.
So many people! So much fun too! We got all decked out in our Electric Run shirts, glow glasses, some glow paint and glow necklaces.
But oh my gosh compared to other people there we were super under dressed! Lots of fun unique “neon” costumes!
The run route included different light stations, etc. and there was a huge after party that we skipped out on as it was very loud and crowded.
We are so old!
Instead we went to a nearby restaurant and had a beverage before heading home. We didn’t get in bed until midnight which is way past our bedtime. Again, so old!
We were all up pretty early and coffee was my best friend 🙂 The hubby and I made a yummy breakfast that included Paleo Eggs Benedict from Make it Paleo,
as well as some fresh fruit and some of Udi’s Gluten Free Muffins.
Speaking of which, have you guys tried these muffins? I had to have a taste even though they are not Paleo. At least they were gluten-free! Anyways, Udi’s sent me some samples about a month ago and I was pleased to see that they would last when kept in the freezer. Especially since they sent so much good stuff!
I had been wanting to sample some of their gluten-free products after hearing about how good they were from fellow bloggers so jumped at the chance to do a review. I had no idea that they made so many different gluten-free foods and both the hubby and I were impressed at how good everything we tasted was.
Udi’s was started in 1994 and since then has quickly become the number one gluten-free brand in America. As mentioned, they make many different products such as bread, bagel, granola, tortillas, muffins and cookies.
I brought the Snicker doodles to the baby shower I threw a few weeks ago and after tasting one wanted to take them off the serving table and hide them for myself! They were so soft and flavorful you would have never guessed they were gluten-free!
The Vanilla Muffins that we served today at breakfast were also a big hit. Everyone was raving about how great they tasted and The Love Nugget was in heaven! He finished off mine then tried to steal the last one from the table after everyone was finished and we were cleaning up. He loved them!
I highly recommend Udi’s for anyone living or wanting to try out a gluten-free lifestyle. Like I said we stuck a few things in the freezer for the future and will definitely be enjoying them on occasion as Udi’s is so good!
The rest of our morning we lounged around then went to Whole Foods for lunch and a Costco run.
After we got home we spent a few hours prepping food for the week. Again the hubby was home to help which is so much nicer than doing it on my own. We cut veggies, roasted Kabocha, made protein bars, coconut lime paleo bites (recipe to come soon), hard-boiled eggs, made paleo mayo, put together some trail mix, steamed veggies, then later cooked chicken, steak (for the hubby) and salmon the week. Phew! I was tired after and the rest of the evening was spent on the couch relaxing.
Definitely a fun weekend full of marvelous happenings but wish it didn’t go by so fast!
