I’m starting the week off in a great mood as I’m feeling much better! After several days of rest I’m ready to get back into my routine of fitness and fun with The Love Nugget!
Speaking of The Love Nugget, he’s been really pushing his limits with us lately especially this past weekend while at Gigi’s house for dinner. He was a monster! I’m sure it didn’t help that I wasn’t feeling 100% and my patience was slim to none but all the same he’s definitely trying to see more of what he can get away with lately. Hoping this week since I’m feeling back to normal I’ll be able to give him some more attention and we can actually get out of the house to play.
Like I said though I’m starting today off in a much better, and more optimistic mood which is perfect for Marvelous in My Monday!
Of coarse thank you as always to the lovely Katie for hosting!
Marvelous – Fresh flowers to brighten the room!
Love having flowers in the house and don’t buy them often enough. They just die so quickly I never feel like it’s worth the money but these were just too bright and cheery to pass up.
- 3-4 large pitted dates
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/3 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1 tbsp. coconut butter
- 1/3 cup fresh raspberries
- 1 tbsp. coconut oil
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- Place all ingredients except coconut oil in a food processor.
- Pulse until a wet sticky mixture forms.
- Turn on food processor and slowly pour in coconut oil.
- Continue running for about 30 seconds.
- Roll into balls and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
I’m trying to limit my nut intake these days as I’ve been overdoing it a little too much lately so these are the perfect nut-free, naturally sweetened snack to have on hand.
Marvelous – All the food prep for the week that happened yesterday,
Along with this fresh beet, carrot, apple and pear juice, egg cups, and beet chips I also made these protein bars for the hubby, chopped up veggies for snacks, made Paleo hummus, roasted butternut squash and washed kale for the week.
Marvelous – This package of amazing Vega products that arrived at my door the other day.
I’ve tried a few of Vega products before but none of the ones they sent me so I was very excited to try these out.
Vega is an amazing company started by Brendan Brazier, a former professional Ironman triathlete. He felt that one should not have to compromise between whole food goodness and fast food convenience so was born Vega. A company that creates plant-based whole foods free of refined sugar, dairy, gluten and soy free. Vega also has a commitment to sustainability by using ingredients that are plant-based, locally grown, minimally processed, and non-GMO as well as organic and raw when possible.
Vega just came out with a new sugar-free energizer that was created to enhance mental focus, increase energy, and boost endurance. It comes in either acai berry or lemon lime and contains only 5 calories. We got the Lemon Lime to try and it taste great and definitely gave me a little boost of energy to get me through my spin! The Hubby also gave it a try before his 5:30 am spin class and said it worked great!
I love their Sport line as well and have used their prepare, sustain and recover products before half marathons or other long runs. They definitely help without adding all the extra junk to my body. Love that!
Well, that’s it for today. We’re off to the gym for bodypump and hopefully a walk after.
Have a great Monday!
