Unfortunately, yesterday I was feeling completely down in the energetic department. I think I may be getting some kind of bug. I did manage to make it to yoga thinking it would help me to sweat out the bad toxins and maybe instill some energy within me. I gave the studio a bag of the bark I made yesterday and they loved it! I wrote the ingredients on the bag because if they’re anything like me, I want to know what is in what I am eating. They thought the idea of a bark with nuts, fruit, chocolate and coconut oil was pretty neat and Alex, I directed them straight to your blog for further creative recipes :). I did sweat, there’s no doubt about that, but immediately after class my ears started popping like I was in an airplane. I don’t know if it was due to it being a hot class and having the start of something or if it was just because I wasn’t feeling 100%. I came home, showered and made a snack to sit on the couch and read with.
Ughhh, SO goood! There is something about the juicy, crunchy sweetness of the apple that goes perfectly with the creamy, nutty flavor of the almond butter. Plus, the pecans give in a whole new element.
While I was taking shots of my food, my pup Ruca was completely baffled as to what I was doing. She sat on the couch looking so confused but her confusion was mixed with the perfect amount of cuteness… I must share.
She has got to be one of the cutest pups I’ve ever seen and not just because she’s mine ;). I know I was supposed to bake myself a sweet potato yesterday but I just didn’t have the patience to wait for it to cook. When I came home from yoga, I wanted something easy and quick. Shortly after I finished with my snack, Jon came home with an appetite out of this world. We then made some dinner and Jon was not wanting a sweet potato so we settled for quesadillas. I sautéed half of an avocado, onions, and bell peppers as Jon sautéed our chicken. I used two whole wheat tortillas and sandwiched the veggies, chicken and a thin layer of shredded cheese. I baked it at 400 F for about 10 minutes until the tortillas became crunchy and dug in. I ate half last night for dinner and saved the other half for today.
Yoga today but instead of attending a hot class, (which I have been incorporating a hot class in each week) I will be attending the warm class. I’m excited to get in there and stretch and connect with myself. And you better believe the sweet potato is happening today :). Oh yeah, and I won HEAB‘s photo giveaway!! SO excited for the opportunity to have a great looking photo to give to our parents for the holidays. None of them have a photo of the two of us (crazy, huh) and this will be a great first photo. Thanks so much Heather for the chance to make our first married photo so memorable. I will definitely share the finished product!
