How amazing do sweet potato muffins sound? I took a yoga class in Pittsburgh with the uber cool Caroline and it turns out that she writes the coolest wellness blog, all about finding the “right-on factor” for your body. Great recipes and insight- meet Caroline and those sweet potato cupcakes at G Spot Revolution.
Speaking of my “right on factor”, I’m realizing that my body and brain operates best when under the influence of a TON of vegetables. I’m traveling for work this week so eating out is my only option. I’ve been so busy and know I have to wake up to be even busier the next day so I must fuel up well. The Whole Foods salad bar has become my best friend. I’m craving beets, kale, tofu, edamame…and giving in to those cravings has given me energy on days where I should be existing solely on coffee. I learned this from my Plant Strong Challenge in May- why did I forget so quickly?!?
And speaking of my work trip, with only work/eating vegetables/getting to yoga or spin to focus on, I have FINALLY gotten to some of the books I have downloaded to Kindle. I loved Devil in the White City by Erik Larson so I’m digging into his latest- In The Garden of Beasts. About an American Ambassador and his family in Hitler’s Berlin, it’s rather dark but very, very interesting. Larson’s novels are great if you like historical fiction. (What are you reading? Send me some upbeat suggestions, I’m going to need it after this.)
Having my nails painted has become my thing. After 2 events in the last 2 weeks that required manis (and by required, I mean I treated myself), I want pretty nails all the time. A quick stop at Walgreens procured me this pretty Essy shade, Mochacino. A perky gray/brown that is way more everyday than the navy and bright pink I had been sporting. My grandmother would be proud.
I know I’m late to this party but Skype is awesome. So much better than talking on the phone.
What about you? Anything you’re loving lately?
