What I {love} Wednesday

by Healthy Diva on March 28, 2012


Happy Wednesday!

I can’t believe we are halfway through the week already, it seems the weeks have been flying by lately, I will be 30 SO soon! Yikes! Actually not yikes, I am really excited and I am super excited that Mike made birthday dinner reservations in Vegas. I am sure wherever he picked I will love and just going to Vegas will be fun and great alone time which is needed!

Lets get this post rolling, I mean it is titled something for a reason…..

What I Love Wednesday

Oat smash came BACK this morning for breakfast, I used to make these plain and not so photogenic creations daily but kind of forgot about them.

Mint chocolate oat smash

1/2 cup oats + 1.5 cup almond milk cooked up, then add 1.5 tbsp peppermint extract, 2 tbsp cocoa powder, 2 tbsp chia seeds, 1/2 scoop of nitrowhey vanilla protein powder, handful of carob chips, NuNaturals cocoa bean extract, stevia.

Smash down on a plate and refrigerate over night! I know weird, but I like it this way and I eat it with a spoon  ;-)


Love these beautiful cards from my sister that were sent to us yesterday! Her wedding planning begins! Her future mother in law found these cards, she gets major kudos!

The inside made me tear up and made me so excited for her and Marko! <3

I love these two things together for a fast meal on the go, it works for me and you know my whole spill on the clif bars  ;-)

I love that my husband maybe realizes now that MAC is the way to go. He is having computer problems and I told him again, you should of got a MAC when you got your last laptop like I did  ;-)

I love salmon burgers on top of a veggie filled salad! I realized last night too that I bought a box last week and didn’t realize I had a box already so I will be eating salmon burgers every day this week, woops! I have to use up food, especially because of the move!

I love that tonight we are doing the walk through of our new house and then tomorrow is closing day! Woot Woot!

I love the app called”Fuzel” on the iphone, I used it here in this pic to create a fun collage  :mrgreen:

*Oh and everything is green, this was my marchphotoaday green theme on instagram

I love walks with my husband, they make my heart happy <3

*Haha, this pic was taken for something, we didn’t just randomly have Anthony take this pic!

What do you LOVE today?

See you friends later  :-D

Katie xoxo

That’s so sweet about your house, gorgeous kitchen! So excited for you!

21 Erin @ Girl Gone Veggie March 28, 2012 at 10:12 am

Aww that card from your sister was so touching! My sister got married last summer and it was such a special time for us. I’ll never forget our talk the night before her wedding cuddled up in bed together.

Your new kitchen is beautiful!! Ahh I can’t wait to have my own kitchen some day!

And congrats on your husband getitng a Mac. He definitely made the right choice! I made the switch to Apple five years ago and I don’t think I could ever go back!


22 Healthy Diva March 28, 2012 at 10:57 am

I know, it was so sweet! I am sure you have so many beautiful memories from her wedding!

Thank you, after 4 years of a small apartment kitchen, I am grateful very much!

Oh he did not get a macbook yet, that was a pic of mine from a year ago, I hope he gets one, because both his past htp laptops had problems :p

Happy day love!


23 Kelly March 28, 2012 at 11:18 am

Happy Wednesday lovely lady :)

Love that the sun is shining today and everyone seems to be in better spirits because of it.

Salmon burgers are delicious! Have you tried them on the bbq? Yum! It looks like your day is filled with healthy meals and snacks.

The kitchen picture you posted looks so cozy! Love the island. Also, love your pink hoodie. Can’t get enough of that store!

Hope you have a great day!


24 Healthy Diva March 28, 2012 at 11:23 am

Hi Kelly!

Oh the sun is hanging out over your way I see ;) it is not over here, raining like crazy!

I can not wait to have a grill so we can cook the salmon burgers on it! We do not have one right now, living in apartments the past 4 years we never could get one!

Thanks, it does have a warm and cozy feel and I love VIC SECRET PINK too! The best!

Happy day to you!


25 Yellow Haired Girl March 28, 2012 at 11:20 am

I’m SO excited for you guys (and super jealous of that beautiful kitchen)!

43 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More March 28, 2012 at 10:19 pm

Apple IS the way to go…though I may be biased because they allow me to pay rent. ;) (but really, it IS the way to go!)


44 Healthy Diva March 29, 2012 at 6:46 am

Pretty sweet! Yes it is the way to go, I am a mac addict!


45 Julie Goes Healthy March 29, 2012 at 3:38 am

Cute picture of you and your husband. And congrats on your new house. I love that you took a picture of the kitchen first – always the biggest seller!

Did he end up buying the Mac yet?


46 Healthy Diva March 29, 2012 at 6:43 am

Thanks Julie! Yes it is a big selling point for sure!

No, I am not sure what he is going to do, he is going to go this weekend. If he was smart he would get a mac ;)


47 Julie Goes Healthy March 29, 2012 at 3:40 am

P.S. What’s your favorite Clif bar? I don’t usually like them but coconut choc chip is awesome.


48 Healthy Diva March 29, 2012 at 6:44 am

My favorite are the Mojo’s, the peanut butter pretzel mojo and the mountain mix mojo are good too! You should try those next! Also, have you had luna bars?! Those are awesome as well!


49 Heather @ Kiss My Broccoli April 14, 2012 at 8:19 pm

Um yeah, so I’m moving in with you on the 22nd…don’t worry about accommodations, I’ll make the kitchen my bedroom and I think the island would work nicely for my bed…who wants pancakes for breakfast?! ;)
