Super Salad

by Healthy Diva on January 31, 2013

 

Happy Thursday!

The day got really busy in the afternoon yesterday with some errands,  family issue that arose, and a wrestling match I went to for my nephew.

Fitness

I did manage to squeeze in a workout late morning, by squeeze I mean squeezed into my polar strap too, haha!

I did a routine of weights and cardio bursts, similar to one I made up on Sunday! I like to makeup my own fitness routines sometimes, just go with the flow! Great workout!

 Family Time

Ellis is a great wrestler, Canon Mac won the match and it was fun to see the boys kick butt!

My other nephew sat by my side during the match, isn’t he the cutest ever?

He also sat by his mom and posed for me while his mom was recording Ellis’s match, haha! Look at that smile!

We had a fun time, always nice to see my boys!

Oh and sidenote, doesn’t my sisters phone case rock?! She loves skulls as well  icon wink Super Salad

I was hungry while at the match so I busted into my luna bar there, funny how it matched the school colors!

Quick Fact ….

Luna Bars rock and are especially GREAT to eat during pregnancy since they contain folic acid, calcium, iron, and vitamin d!

Dinner last night was put together fast and easy, thanks to a super salad combo in a bag, grilled chicken , broccoli, and potatoes!

I picked this bag salad up at the store yesterday, pretty awesome stuff! I love that it had a variety of super foods in it!

Super salad mix for sure  icon biggrin Super Salad

It was a great salad and a little more powerful than my typical salad, which was nice.

Last night I passed out early watching some Real Housewives of Atlanta and Top Chef, got to love Bravo. I sure do

*****

Breakfast this morning is overnight oats with some dried pears, almond butter, and cinnamon on top. I am ready to dig into this!

Can you tell I like cinnamon, woops!

Time to fill the preggo belly and start the day!

Please send prayers to my family, just need some right now and nothing I want to discuss on here at the time. Thank you so much in advance <3

Happy Thursday friends and see you later a giveaway! It’s FIBERLICIOUS *hint hint *

Has anyone tried the new Starbucks vanilla drinks?  

I tired the vanilla blonde roast yesterday and loved it! I saw the spicy vanilla latte too, but was scared to try because I wasn’t sure if I would like it and lets face it, lattes are not cheap!

Oh, I love Luna bars! Always my go to snack between classes and such.

That phone case is so full of bling! ;)

Haven’t tried the new Starbucks vanilla drinks yet but since I have so many Starbucks here I’m sure I will soon and report back.

You and your family are in my prayers at this time <3 I hope everything works out all right and just know that you are amazing inside and out! Xx

I haven’t tried the Vanilla Blonde Roast yet. I like the regular Blonde Roast so I definitely need to try Vanilla.

Sending lots of prayers and good thoughts your way love! <3

I’ve tried the vanilla spice latte and I really liked it! It wasn’t radically different than the traditional vanilla latte… just had a little something extra.

I haven’t tried the new starbucks yet but I can’t wait too. Sometimes starbucks is just a bit too strong for me so I think the vanilla will be the perfect touch!

I love your pregnant belly! And if you dont like what you order at Starbucks they will always make you a new one. I had to do that once before.

I love vanilla flavored coffee (not vanilla flavor added, but, you know, vanilla beans), but when I tasted the Starbucks Blonde Roast I don’t remember loving it. I wonder if somehow the two combined would please my palate?

That salad blend looks amazing! I’m loving roasted Brussels in my salads lately.

[Bravo is the only thing I miss about not having cable. It’s probably a good thing, however, since I would watch way too much of it. Now I have to be at the gym on the elliptical to get my ‘fix.’ ;)]

I am planning a trip to Starbucks today… I’m definitely going to check out that new vanilla latte! I hope everything turns out fine with your family and I’ll be thinking about you.

Sending good thoughts and prayers to your family! I did not care for the vanilla spice latte at all. It was super strong! I want to try the vanilla blonde, did not know they even had that.

Thanks love, so much :)

Yes, try that one for sure!

I LOVE cinnamon too. I always double it in recipes (and add a touch of nutmeg). I put a ton in my oatmeal and every day I have a black grande coffee from Starbucks with cinnamon on top:-)

I am sending you hugs and love and also to your family!!

Dried pears, such a great idea, I have to get some!!

The spice vanilla latte is good! A cross between a vanilla latte and a chai latte. Pretty sure they just puts some pumps of chai in a vanilla latte! My vote would be try it!

Big hugs, hun. Keeping you and your family in my thoughts <3 Hope what ever it is isn't to serious and resolves itself soon.

I often joke that I eat my cinnamon with a side of food. I use a ridiculous amount because I love it so much, but I learned the hard way that you can definitely get too much of a good thing :lol: And I haven't tried any of the new vanilla drinks, but I'm curious about the blonde roast!

Blonde roast is my favorite for sure! I pick up a package to brew at home every now and then.

Lemon is def. the best flavor Luna bars make!
Since I am a huge Starbucks lover, I always get the skinny vanilla latte. The tall is only 90 calories. I haven’t brought myself to try the spicy one…yet

Bravo gets me through my sad days. The new Starbucks vanilla spice latte is AMAZING. It’s the best if you get it as a frappuchino. I got mine with an extra shot of espresso, soy milk, and no whipped cream. So freaking delicious. Praying for you<3

Ooh dried pears sound good! I’ve never seen them here – I’m a fan of dried apples though! Love the phone cover! Man oh man I wish we could get Luna bars in Ireland! What’s your all time favourite one?

Hmmm potatoes in salad. Might have to try that. I know you love sweet potatoes. Next time you make some wedges/fries mix them with broccoli slaw and some Newmans own sesame dressing. It’s delish!

The vanilla spice latte is delicious! Ask for a sample, they will gladly make you a little sample to try because they want their customers happy. Thats how I tried it:)
