I hope you all had a marvelous weekend.
This weekend was filled with the usual shenanigans. Workouts, resting, cocktails, friends, family and sleep. The sleep was needed.
First things first, some weekend pictures.
How gorgeous is the sunrise.
I love coming out of the gym and being in the presence of this beauty.
Clearly, I am super cool and needed to snap a picture.
This weekend I picked up some more Kabocha Squash.
I simply put tinfoil over a baking pan, cut the kabocha and sprinkle with cinnamon, broil for 10 minutes and then bake at 425 for another 30-40 minutes until crisp.
As always, I eat this with my favorite coconut butter.
I also made several trips to Starbucks.
Oh yah, I also owe you guys a hair post. Hopefully I’ll get that done sometime during this week! Stay tuned.
On Saturday night, I went out with friends and tried putting vodka into my pumpkin chai tea…
In attempt to get some things crossed off my Fall Bucket List, I tried my hands at a Fall cocktail.
It’s definitely interesting to have a warm cocktail! I’m unsure whether I loved it or not..At least it kept me warm!
I thought I was being super clever, like a Hot Toddy with vodka.
Maple Chai Toddy
- 1 cup of pumpkin chai tea (or just chai tea)
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1-2 shots vodka (I used 2)
- a cinnamon stick (steeped with the loose leaf tea)
See the original recipe for proper directions!
As I was scanning the internet, I saw this on Foodbeast.
That’s like two of my favorite things in one.
Hopefully this works out well, as I have high hopes!
Look at these combinations and try and tell me they don’t look delicious. Well, unless you hate coffee.
Did some Insanity this weekend, thanks Shaun T. You killed me with your plyo workout. I always forget about these workouts, but they are super awesome and intense.
I love you and hate you all in one Mr. T.
On an insanity note, I really want to try out his newest workout series, Asylum. I wonder how that one is. Has anyone tried it?
I made pumpkin spice muffins. Verdict = They’e delicious!!
Thank you Laury for this fabulous recipe.
I’ve been eating them with cashew butter and freshly picked honeycrisp apples. Can’t beat that!
I made a few changes to Laury’s original recipe. Simply replacing oat flour for buckwheat and millet flour with amaranth and omitting the raisins, since I’m not a fan. And made big muffins, instead of mini muffins.
I also remembered how much I like quinoa in my baked goods. Quinoa flour is awesome stuff.
Make sure to check out some more Marvelous Monday happenings!
