I’m so excited to go on a mini vacation tomorrow with my 2 best friends! We’re going to Palm Springs and it’s supposed to be 108 degrees (yikes!)
At least I’ve got a cool outfit to wear in the hot weather! This is my first long dress, so I’m really excited to wear it.
Getting out of your city is a great way to feel refreshed and get out of your daily routine.
I’m at my best friend Allie’s house, and she’s making me Ceazer salad as I write this post (I’m a lucky BFF.)
I discovered these two precious gems in her kitchen, and I’M SO OBSESSED WITH THEM!
Unfortunately, my satchel is too small to sneak them home with me; so I’ll have to keep them at her house.
Clever salad tossers are becoming my favorite new obsession. I’ll post my cute pink bunny ear shaped tossers when I get home 🙂
I’ve officially dived into the wonderful world if soups! Growing up a picky eater, I wouldn’t go anywhere near foods that didn’t have the words “mac” or “cheese” in it. Now, I’m 24 years old I’m slowing taking baby steps out of the picky eating world! After a drop of tomato soup touched my tongue, I couldn’t get enough. Try this delicious (very easy) recipe and fall in love too!
1 lb tomatoes
1 bunch of fresh basil, chopped
1 cups vegetable broth
1-2 cloves garlic
1/2 cup whole milk
1 tsp olive oil
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
Put all of your fresh and delicious ingredients together in a blender or food processor. When they’re blended, put your smooth soup into a medium-sized saucepan for 7-10 minutes. Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until almost smooth, or until desired consistency is reached. The milk is not necessary, however I love my tomato soup creamy 🙂
Makes 2-4 servings.
I threw together this delicious mini-masterpiece from fridge left-overs!
What’s in it:
Melted string mozzarella cheese
Low-Fat baked flakey biscuits
Sauted honey portable mushrooms
Freshly sliced avocado
A simple Italian side salad
After baking the biscuits in the oven for 5 minutes, I took them out, filled them with the ingredients above, covered them in tin foil, and then baked them again for 5 minutes this got the cheese melted to perfection without burning the biscuits.
If you’re having a hard time getting yourself motivated to workout during summer, remember your goals. WHY do you want to workout? Imagine how you’ll feel tomorrow when you look back at today. I bet you’ll say “Why didn’t I just get up and do it?” You’re always going to regret the things you don’t do.
If all else fails; get up, put on your bikini, and look in the mirror. If you’re happy with what you see, sit back down and keep reading my fabulous blog anyway. If you’re not happy and you want to see improvement…. GET YOUR BUTT OFF THE COMPUTER AND GO WORKOUT! .. Then come read my blog when you get back 🙂
Bikini bikini bikini!
I chose to snack on some homemade blue raspberry jello tonight with my dad, instead of a bowl of icecream or a bunch of cookies!
Less sugar, less calories and just as satisfying.
I added fresh blueberries and raspberries while preparing the jello mixture this morning, unfortunately I got hungry and ate them before I took this picture. They were a fresh and fruity Fitspirational spin to this classic dessert.
This delicious Pear White Balsamic Vinegarette was recommended to me by my friend Melissa! She made a kick-butt summer pear salad for our church potluck.
My mouth is still watering just thinking about it! It was so delicious, that everyone ate it before I could get my phone out to snap a picture!
Anyway, Melissa found this fruity-gem at Sprouts (which is a local San Diego food store.)
I definitely recommend picking some up!
