Hi and happy Monday! I hope that your week is off to a fabulous start! I got up and practiced yoga this morning and it was the most perfect way to kick off a short week. I’ve got a fun last-minute quick trip planned for this weekend.
It’s not always easy to get out of bed at 6 a.m. on a Monday morning but it’s always worth it once practice is done. I feel a million times more energetic and mentally ready for the week when I do get up and practice.
I brought back the overnight oats for breakfast this morning with a fall twist…bananas, apples, pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, plain greek yogurt, almond milk, oats and almond butter and cranberry toppings. I wanted to love this but I didn’t. I still wanted a smoothie. Oh well.
I was holding on to summer despite it being the first day of fall with Sunday night’s dinner. Roasted okra and eggplant, sliced tomatoes and a turkey burger topped with a chili aioli.
I had a really nice Sunday. I taught yoga in the morning and then came home and whipped up a frittata and baked Paleo pumpkin apple muffins.
I had high hopes for the muffins. They tasted good but I need to make a few modifications from a texture standpoint before sharing. I will try again!
The frittata had sauteed zucchini, squash, onions, sundried tomatoes and sharp white cheddar. I haven’t made a frittata in a long time and I love how easy they are for brunch and how well the leftovers keep/reheat.
I spent the rest of Sunday at Target and Nordstrom Rack (<– trouble), cleaning the house, packing for my trip (FIVE days early, that is a record!) and then ran three miles solo and walked Sullie two.
Stay tuned for another post with a fun announcement later today!
Be happy and have a great week!
