Five Things Friday 7.22.2016

Happy Friday!! I hope everything is going spectacular for you and that you have fun things going on this weekend :)

I mentioned this earlier in the week, but I am DONE with this semester (yahoo!!).  Of course I love learning about nutrition and making plans to start my future business, but I’ll be honest with you…taking Wednesday-Friday (today) as slow and easy fun days has been a breath of fresh air.  I’ve kept myself busy by working out, meeting with friends, and packing for a friend trip to the mountains this weekend but it’s nothing compared to the usual grind.

Now, let’s jump right into this week’s recap with a Five Things Friday post :)  Please feel free to share things that made your week awesome in the comments!

Five Things Friday from Treble in the Kitchen

Five Things I Ate:

  • Smoothie bowls!! I honestly think I had one every day this week, and I’m so not mad about it :)

(frozen banana, 2 frozen strawberries, frozen spinach, almond milk, water, vanilla extract, collagen, topped with Love Grown Granola, banana, peanut butter, and blueberries)

  • Salads with ALL the veggies

lunch salad

  • Salmon with heirloom cabbage from the farmers market (roasted with olive oil, salt, and pepper for 20 minutes on each side at 400 degrees.)

  • Farmers market local roasted chicken :) This was a fun experiment.  I tossed the veggies (zucchini, carrots, sweet potato) in olive oil salt and pepper.  I put rosemary and thyme inside the chicken and sprinkled salt and pepper with lemon and a touch of olive oil on the outside.  I roasted all at 400 degrees for about an hour.  Perfection!  We had leftovers to last us a week!

Five Things Making Me Happy:

  • Brian and I started watching a new show to us on Netflix called Stranger Things.  Have you heard of it?  It’s definitely “strange” and I’m very intrigued to see how the story plays out.

Yes, I know I mentioned this in my Things I’m Loving post from last month, but I seriously cannot get enough of it.  It’s literally on repeat any time I have the chance to listen to it.

  • Having a Pool Day!

Because I didn’t have any assignments to do pretty early on in the week, I made sure to meet with a friend for a pool day and was (and still am) SO happy about it! Growing up, I think I lived at the pool.  Now that I’m older, we don’t live in an apartment with a pool for us to use, so it’s always fun to take advantage of some pool time when it’s available.

  • Breckenridge for the weekend

Breckenridge

I don’t think I’ve been up to Breck since the winter.  It’s definitely been a while, and I am so happy to be with our friends, enjoy the outdoors, and just relax in the mountains.

  • As if I haven’t said it enough…I’m pretty stinking happy about being done with the semester and my grades :)
