Weekend Things

>> Friday, March 29, 2013

Happy Friday! Starting off the weekend with a slurpable smoothie made with green beans. We have a ton of frozen green beans on hand these days as part of our frozen CSA stock. I was out of spinach one day, but wanted a green smoothie . . . so I figured why not?

Like with all sneaky smoothies, you don't taste them one bit.

// Chocolate Green Bean Smoothie // 
1 cup frozen strawberries + 1 cup frozen green beans + 1 medium banana
+ 1 cup almond milk + 1 tablespoon almond butter + 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
+ 1 teaspoon vanilla extract + coconut flakes (optional)

// Sole Mate //
I finally, FINALLY found my marathon training shoe.
Traded in the Saucony Virrata for the Brooks Pure Flow.
Review soon! I'm psyched. They're so comfortable + fit really well!

// Cherry Pie + Damn Fine Coffee //
Been watching Twin Peaks on Netflix. An old favorite.
We also watched This is 40 -- 10 more years, but hilarious!

// Swiffer Sweeper //
Why didn't I find this tutorial sooner?
Make reusable + washable Swiffer covers for $1.

// Frugal Fashion Finds //
Sale on Fjällräven Kånken backpacks!
Awesome basics + separates to build any wardrobe.
Eco-friendly, organic dress-up wear.

// Words To Live By //
"Successful people never worry about what others are doing."
"What we see depends mostly on what we look for."
"Instead of looking outside the box, get rid of the box."

// Runspiration //
My two favorite running bloggers these days:

// Spring Ahead //
Looking forward to spring/summer running and lighter gear.

// Fried Egg & Cheese //
Gluten free month is soon over. I'll write more soon.
This Fried Egg and Cheese Sandwich looks great right about now!

// (Kitchen) Tools //
So, if you like to cook. I have a secret for you.
One-piece silicone spatulas are the ONLY way to go.
I only learned this recently. They're all I use. For everything.

// Reading Assignments //
"My Vegan Marathon" by Christine Frietchen via NYTimes
"9 Very Specific Foods Vegetarians Miss Terribly" via BuzzFeed (I don't really agree -- haha)

Writing Chapter Three was relatively quiet this week due to some technical difficulties. But I did write about our little daredevil's very first emergency room visit (re: battery mention in last week's post) and a funny book for parents called Parenting: Illustrated by Crappy Pictures.

Have a great weekend!
