WIAW: A few of my favorite things

Hey peeps!

I'm writing this really really quickly because a) I'm forcing myself not to take a nap. I will not nap I will not nap!*, and b) I am supah busy today, but I want to get at least one post up this week!! (Note: I wrote this on Tuesday)

*My sleeping schedule has been terrible and I am really trying to sleep more at night, and less during the day. I am exhausted all day but can barely get myself tired in bed!

This week has not been the greatest so far and I am so incredibly tempted to vent, but ain't none of you got time for that. I will be positive, DANGIT! I AM A HAPPY CAMPER!

Whew, you see? Self-pep-talks work.

Many thanks to the amazing Jenn!

In keeping with the positivity (<--my computer doesn't think that's a word. Is it?!), I am going to show you my favorites of this week!!


Green smoothie: almond milk, mango, and lots o' spinach

Peach Blueberry Oatmeal (made w/ almond milk and chia seeds), topped with vanilla bean Greek yogurt, and Sunbutter


Turkey+avocado+sundried tomatoes+spinach whole wheat wrap, apple+cinnamon, bell peppers, salsa for dipping

Bestest salad! Spinach, strawberries, chickpeas, avocado, homemade BBQ vinaigrette, whole wheat pita, and an apple


Fish tacos: corn tortillas, grilled tilapia, stir-fried veggies, mango, and salsa

Cinco de Mayo meal! Fiesta loaded sweet potato - black beans, corn, salsa, Greek yogurt, plus side salad with lemon vinaigrette


Caramel Nut Brownie Lunabar

Banana+Justin's Chocolate Hazelnut Butter

PJ&J smoothie - almond milk, frozen strawberries, peanut butter, and spinach


Summery feet=sandals and nailpolish

Thank you to Alison for opening my eyes about this deliciousness!!

Okay, I haven't tried Kombucha yet, but am seriously considering it! I've been more and more interested in "gut health," and especially after reading this post and this post, I'm ready to give it a go!

I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday, and for those of you taking them, good luck on all of your exams/midterms/finals/AP Exams!!


  1. Ahh girl, I'm so sorry to hear that your week hasn't been going swimmingly, but your positive outlook is so infectious! Kudos to you for keeping your head up! :)
    Isn't that peanut butter amazing?? I almost forgot that we still have some left in the jar. :) OOIAJ soon? YUP.
    Ooo and now I want a loaded sweet potato.

  2. Your bracelet (blue!) is so pretty :) I love it!!

    Is that flavor of Luna bar good? I have one waiting for me to try!

    1. Thank you!! And yep, it's one of my faves - Peppermint Stick (or Chocolate Chunk that I can't find anywhere!!) will always have my heart, but it's a nice treat when I'm craving something sweet and chocolatey...mmmm.

  3. GAHHHHHH I want EVERYTHING!!!!! You are making me so jealous!! Like, I can't even pick a favorite because EVERYTHING look so good. I hope you are feeling a little better and just remember I'm just a text/email/tweet away!! :) <3 love ya!
