Favorites!

15 Jan

Good morning readers!

Here in DC the weather is gross. It’s been miserably warm and rainy but today is cold and that misty rain that seems to come at you from all directions so no matter where you place that umbrella…you’re gonna get wet. Boo.

BUT, I did have a great weekend with better weather and lot’s of my favorite things so let’s talk about that first!

As I mentioned, Friday night we were going out to celebrate Adrienne’s birthday! WOO! First, I had to make a healthy dinner and head to Kevin’s wrestling match before I could go out with the girls. I was starving while making dinner so first I had a berry smoothie.IMG_2102In the blend was half a banana, 1 cup of mixed berries and 1/3 cup greek yogurt. It definitely helped hold me over while I ran around to get ready and then prepare dinner.

Dinner was a favorite meal of mine that I first made with Erika last month! Peanut Spaghetti Squash with VegetablesIMG_2105I slapped together some sugar snap peas, broccoli, yellow squash, tomatoes, spinach and baby bella mushrooms with the sphagetti squash then drizzled them with peanut sauce. It totally hit the spot and was great company for Kevin’s match against Harvard where he pinned his opponent to win the match! It was very exciting and one of my favorite things to see in wrestling. Kevin winning and pinning 😉Right after his win I ran down to the mat to hug him and congratulate him then it was off to Adam’s Morgan for Adrienne’s birthday!IMG_2111I met them where they were having dinner and arrived just in time for dessert! We split two crepes – banana and nutella and a banana split that had strawberries, banana, nutella and walnuts. Oh my god – heavenlyLight but perfectly satisfying at the same time.IMG_2108 IMG_2109After dessert I went with them to a couple of bars, but didn’t drink since I was driving. It was nice to just be out and celebrate with her though since she’s become one of my closest friends in the city.

Saturday

This morning I was up bright and early to make it to my favorite weekend workout class – Bosu Body. She normally whoops your but and she did not disappoint this weekend. Before class I nommed on a new bar Luna just came out with. It’s like a nutri-grain bar but way better. I highly recommend them.IMG_2114 IMG_2115 IMG_1917After that butt-kicking workout (my arms were super sore from yoga sculpt the two days before) I went home and had my favorite no cooking required breakfast …. OVERNIGHT OATS! 🙂 See the trend here? 😉IMG_1918 IMG_1919 IMG_1921Another one bites the dust!

On my way home from the gym I had picked up a couple of things I needed including bananas, some chocolate milk and these really fascinating looking tortillas blue corn and flaxseed blendIMG_1920

To skip ahead and keep the favorites rolling, let’s talk about dinner. These tortillas are the bomb.  And I threw together this creation for dinner that has definitely become one of my new favorite go-to’s for an incredible meal.IMG_2120 IMG_2126 IMG_2127Seriously readers you have to make this for dinner or lunch sometime. It is sooooooo good. And SUPER easy!

I sauteed the chicken in parsley, oregano, pepper and salt. After I warmed the tortillas on the stove top I topped them with roasted red pepper hummus and then put on my re-heated leftover veggies from the spaghetti squash dinner the night before. Then I added the chicken, sprinkled mexican cheese on, popped them in the microwave to melt it then topped it with Katsu sauce (optional) Seriously. Incredible.

Sunday

What a great morning I had with my mom enjoying blueberry whole wheat pancakes and a banana with PB, and a nice tall glass of skim milk.IMG_2129 IMG_2130After breakfast my mom came with me to one of two wrestling matches Kevin had that day. He again pinned his first opponent from Stanford, but then unfortunately lost a match to his one from Lehigh. He’ll get ’em next time.

After that I spent time at home with my roommates who all came back from break then went out and saw Zero Dark Thirty with my mom and brother. It was a really long movie and unfortunately I was kinda tired, but I still enjoyed it.

Monday

I woke up super early for yet another hot yoga class with Lululemon. I will hear the final decision on Wednesday on whether or not I will be hired – let’s just say I am compulsively checking my email and plan to until I find out. Although I haven’t tried too many different types of yoga, only 5, hot yoga is my current favorite. So I had no problem waking up for this class then having my favorite kind of smoothie afterwards 🙂IMG_2142 IMG_2144I also made a mini Sweet Breakfast Scramble to enjoy at work later – and as you all know this one is definitely a favorite.

For dinner last night, I made the tortillas again but this time with shrimp. STILL DELICIOUS! I’m telling you guys, this one’s a winner.IMG_2146 IMG_2148 IMG_2149For the three hours following dinner I could not shake my craving for cookies. I wasn’t sure what type of cookie specifically (oreos, chocolate chip, chocolate chip ice cream cookie sandwich) but I knew it was cookies and nothing else would do the trick. I debated for awhile whether or not I would cave, but eventually I did. Once I was out and saw the ice cream sandwich, I knew it wasn’t what I wanted.

I wanted my favorite Ben and Jerry’s flavor milk and cookies. I ate about 1/3 of the pint – whoops! But it was honestly worth every single perfect bite 🙂IMG_2150 IMG_2151

What are some of your favorite foods readers? Please share them with me! 🙂

Until next time,

Natasha
