Friday Favorites!

Housewife Glamour

I decided today is a great day to link up with miss Heather over at Housewife Glamour and run through some things that I'm loving right now! If you guys don't follow Heathers blog, you should. She's the cutest not to mention she's a dancer for a professional basketball team which was always my dream when I was little! 


My first favorite came in the mail a couple days ago after ordering it from iHerb-- side note: that website has everything under the sun. Anyway I've contemplated buying Walden Farms products a hundred times and always decided against it since they're sweetened with Sucralose, but I finally gave in. This stuff is crack. I came up with this little connection yesterday… greek yogurt, strawberries, cinnamon, stevia, and ZERO calorie chocolate syrup. Can you say heaven? My goodness. 


I'm also loving this MRM BCAA powder because unlike the Walden Farms it's sweetened with Stevia (hey, moderation right?) and it also doesn't have that awful BCAA taste that a lot of the powders have. This has a very slight lemonade flavor but it's not overwhelming at all and absolutely perfect to sip during workouts. I give it an A+.



Easy dinners are #3 on my list and easy dinners made on the grill means one less dish, even better! I made salmon for the first time in a long time since we have our new grill now and I've definitely missed it. I seasoned it with lemon pepper and then squeezed fresh lemon on it once it was cooked. I roasted some veggies with Lawry's seasoning and also made the Seeds of Change brown rice/quinoa. 20 minutes and one baking sheet to clean and that was that! Eating healthy doesn't have to be hard or flavorless. 


And lastly, you may want to sit down for this one. I'm reading a book. 
I think the last time I read a book for fun was…. never? I know, I'm terrible but Natalie Hodson mentioned Brene Brown a couple weeks ago and after I watched her Ted talk I was hooked. I immediately ordered Daring Greatly from Amazon and finally broke it open last night. It's about having the courage to be vulnerable… something I am 100% terrible at. Loving the book so far, and I can't wait to get farther in to it- I have a feeling I'll be buying some more Brene Brown books in the near future.  If you buy it, make sure you watch her Ted talk first, because then you can totally  imagine her personality and tone as you read the book. 

That's it, my four Friday Favorites :) Let me know if you enjoy these types of post and I'll definitely do them more often! Happy Weekend!

  1. I feel like I'm the only one who didn't love that book. I don't know I just didn't get that much from it...maybe I need to read it again!
