Frittatas and Half Moons

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.

hm

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.

9.23breakfast

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.

9.22dinner

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.

DS9.22fritatta

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.

9.22muffins

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! 🙂

9.22brunch

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!

    That fritata looks amazing! And Thanks for the reminder – I need to take a break from cooked oats and ventured into overnight oats again – yes, I am in denial bout the beginning of fall

    I also got in trouble at Nordstroms Rack this weekend. I have a DVF sitting on my bed that I am still deciding if I need to have. I think eggs are the easiest way to use up veggies and get something yummy without any recipe or plan.

    Congrats on the day…big steps and clearly it worked out great.

    Your Sunday sounds delicious! We are finally getting a Nordstrom Rack here…to open two days before my birthday next month. Oh dear…

    An aside, I feel like I’ve seen you in some pink shoes in some photos lately? I could be mistaken, but are they the Mizuno Sayonara? If so, have you gone running in them? I would love a review. If they’re not, whoops 🙂

    I spent Sunday cleaning, too, and I feel so great about this week now. Something about having a clean slate that makes Monday easier to deal with.
