Friday Musings + Protein Ice Cream!

Friday Musings + Protein Ice Cream!

Hey friends!
Man I’ve had a busy week!  Between returning from Blend and getting ready for The Love Nugget’s birthday party on Saturday my week has been crazy!  All good though and looking forward to celebrating our little guy tomorrow!  Not really little anymore though.

Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins

Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Muffins

Most mornings we have time to make and eat breakfast before running out the door.  I actually enjoy a hot cooked breakfast every day and don’t mind making something for the whole family.   Most days…  Some days I’m lazy, we’re running late, or I’m off teaching and The Hubby is home getting The Love Nugget ready.

For those mornings it’s nice to have a quick, healthy, protein packed breakfast that will keep us full until we have time to eat a regular meal.

What I Ate Wednesday + Giveaway #3!

What I Ate Wednesday + Giveaway #3!

Happy Wednesday folks!

We’ve been enjoying another week of gorgeous weather here (sorry East Coaster’s) so have been spending as much time as possible outdoors.  Daily walks, park play, picnic lunches and evening walks.  Definitely been getting in a good amount of Vitamin D!

Anyway, most of you are probably here to check out what we ate yesterday since it’s Wednesday and all.  AND because I don’t want to disappoint, here’s another round of What I Ate Wednesday!  Don’t worry, that giveaway will be somewhere in here I promise 🙂

Thoughts Lately…

Hey guys!

It’s Thursday!  Woo hoo!  One day closer to the weekend.  I’ve been enjoying the feedback I’ve been receiving from you all based off my reader survey.  I’ll tally up all the results and do a full post on it soon but in the meantime it sounds like you’d like more personal posts.  Which I love!  So I’ll go ahead and start working on that today by linking up with Amanda from Running with Spoons for her Thursday, Thinking out Loud.  I’ve had a lot on my mind lately so what better way to get personal than to share some of those thoughts with you all 🙂

The Love Nugget and The Hubby have been lacking in the vegetable department lately.  I try but they can be pretty picky when it comes to veggies.

Good morning friends!

First off, thank you for the support on yesterday’s post.  I feel much more confident about my choices and am definitely going to stand my ground!

I’m beyond excited for today.  The Hubby and I are taking off on a little getaway to Tahoe for a few days of hiking, relaxing and enjoying each other’s company.

Vanilla Fig Protein Smoothie with About Time

Vanilla Fig Protein Smoothie with About Time

Figs, figs, figs, figs!  Can’t get enough lately!  From Fig Jam to Fig muffins and most recently Fig Smoothies!

When the figs my mom brought me started to over ripen I cut up a bunch and tossed them into the freezer for future use.  They’ve turned out to be a delicious addition to smoothies that we’ve all been enjoying.  In particular, this Vanilla Fig Protein Smoothie using About Time Protein Powder.

It’s light, refreshing and packed with protein perfect for after a workout, an afternoon snack or an addition to a meal.

About Time uses protein isolate which is the purest from of whey protein.  It contains 90% more protein and very little fat or lactose. This makes it an extremely clean, natural source of protein for anyone looking to add it in.
