Playing with Nuts
You might have noticed a lot of my lunches including little pre-portioned servings of trail mix lately.
Recently, I’ve been reading up a lot about, well, nuts, and have been loving experimenting with all the different kinds out there to make my own trail mix.
This particular combo included almonds, walnuts, and dried cherries. I made the same for Shane, but added some organic beef jerky to his.
I stayed pretty conservative at first, but am now getting pretty hog-wild with my mixes. Take this one:
I threw just about everything in the pantry in this container:
- Unsweetened coconut flakes
- Dried Cherries
- Dark chocolate chips
Also, did you know dried cherries and dark chocolate chips could just be the best combination known to man? It’s true.
Anyway. I took my nut experimentation to another meal this morning –
I actually just ate this breakfast now while posting, which is a good 2 hours before I usually eat breakfast nowadays. Reason being I’m headed to a power yoga class soon! Finally. I’ve skipped my Wednesday morning power yoga class ohhhh, about 6 weeks in a row now.
OK fine that’s the plan. I’m still trying to convince myself to go, but I’m just SO good of excusing myself out of going. Spin class? Nearly perfect attendance. Power yoga? I think it just comes down to not liking the class enough…but my options are limited.
Since I had some extra time this morning, I grabbed Niko and took her on a nice 20 minute walk before posting. Word says this is the last “warm” day before the big freeze.
Maybe this dip in temps will give Shane and I the kick in the pants we need to start planning our vacation. Every March (or December?) we go somewhere, but we haven’t even been able to settle on a location OR a means to get there for this year’s vaca.
Here’s our options:
- Florida in the same location we got married 3.5 years ago, by plane, train, our car, OR rent a car and leave it there and then fly back (it’s just so $$!)
- California in the San Diego OR Sonoma Valley area, by train or plane.
- Grand Canyon by train or car.
We know we want to go in the end of March. My birthday is the 27th, and being my golden birthday, I wouldn’t mind spending it on vacation. Just sayin’
Hopefully we can make a decision sooner than later!! We are very open to suggestions, too (hint hint.) We just know we want to stay in the United States this time around.
Off to get ready for yoga. Have a great Wednesday, loves.
Where was the last vacation you took?
Any recommendations for Shane and me?
