Flavor bomb.



I discovered this flavor combo by accident. Steve's brother Sean was visiting this past weekend, and I realized he had never had Nutella before. WHAT. UNACCEPTABLE. Obviously I immediately dragged everyone to the store to pick some up and then proceeded to eat the whole jar myself. Sean got a bite, relax...

So I was trying to figure out what to eat for breakfast. I chopped up some fresh strawberries, and mixed a spoonful (heaping) of Nutella with half of a TOASTED COCONUT VANILLA oikos greek yogurt.  Come on now. This will blow your mind. It was a light breakfast, albeit a little too sweet for everyday.


Kale quinoa cakes with avocado. Yes. Steve actually cooked these up, as I got home from work late and was grumpy and lethargic. As I grunted at him slumped over on the counter, he whipped these up and they were amazing. Super healthy, and actually very filling. We cooked up some broccoli and spinach with lemon to eat with it. If you are a vegetarian, this would be a super yummy and filling meal. I was actually craving them the next day, and we had leftovers for lunch, plus some extra! Here is the recipe:


Here is the ultimate winner winner chicken dinner, the true flavor bomb. I have been drinking these after my workouts for the past few weeks and I can't get enough of them. It almost encourages me to work out more just so I can have one. 

These are the ingredients for a mocha peanut butter smoothie recipe from one of my favorite bloggers. It has some healthy stuff and some not so healthy stuff, but many of my favorite flavor combinations: chocolate, peanut butter, and coffee. 

I never knew what the deal was with putting spinach in smoothies, but you really can't taste it and it adds a lot of great texture. YUM. I already had one this morning and I want another one. Please do yourself a favor and go make one right now. Here is the recipe:


Here is a great strength workout that has been my favorite for a couple weeks now. Sometimes I do a half hour of cardio (running or bike) before, or sometimes I incorporate some high intensity cardio in between the strength exercises. Whatever floats your boat. Choose your weight and reps, and I promise you will be sore the next day.

Bicep curls
Stationary lunges
Shoulder press
Pliet squats
Bent over rows
Walking lunges
Bent over shoulder flies
Single leg deadlifts

This weekend will be full of birthday celebrations, psychological evaluations at the clinic, and hopefully amazing music at Summerfest :) Happy eating!
