Things I’m Loving: June 2017

 

Things I'm Loving June

Goodbye June and hello July!

I arrived back in Indy yesterday after a quick trip to Colorado for my Dietetic Internship orientation.  After a jam-packed week, I am thankful to be back and ready for the holiday weekend.

June was a month full of outdoor activity, hot weather, preparation for my internship, and lots of sunshine (thank goodness after super rainy April and May!)

Here are some highlights from my month!

Foods I am Loving:

  • Salads and lunch outside! I know I mentioned this last month, but it will NEVER get old 🙂

Things I'm Loving May

  • Simple meals like grilled chicken, roasted veggies, brown rice and guacamole – so simple and so good!

Easy Dinner

Fody Foods

  • Homemade Falafel

Homemade Falafel

I adapted this recipe, because I was totally craving falafel and pickled veggies (I have always been a pickle lover!) and this meal hit the spot!

Public Greens Indianapolis

The patio is dog friendly – so Brian and I lunched after a long dog walk.   I ate the black bean salsa and the green beans (pesto and olives!) and Brian had the toast with whipped feta, balsamic and strawberries and the Asian noodle salad.  We both swapped bites of everything and it was so good!

Barney Butter

Workouts I am Loving:

Monumental YogaMonumental Yoga is an annual event that happens in Indianapolis each year on the summer solstice.  This year around 3,000 yogis gathered to celebrate in this evening of movement, gratitude, and yoga practice.  I absolutely LOVE attending this event each year, and I am thankful that we had the chance to participate now that we are back in Indy!

  • Running with Brian and Bernie

Running with Brian and Bernie

The Firecracker 6 is just around the corner, and I have LOVED running with Brian and Bernie each week to prepare.

Moments I am Loving:

  • Tincaps game and celebrating Father’s Day with my family

Tin Caps Baseball Game Fort Wayne

For Father’s Day, Brian and I headed up to Fort Wayne for the day to spend it with my family at the Tincaps Baseball game and grilling out afterward.  It was such a perfect end to the weekend and a great way to celebrate Dad.

  • The Bulldog Crawl

Butler Bulldog Crawl

Brian and I live about a mile away from our alma mater, Butler University.  When we heard about the Bulldog Crawl with drinks and apps throughout the campus, we were all in!  It was a fun night catching up with other bulldogs and checking out all of the new things they have added to campus.

  • Bernie and Rooney at the dog park

Bernie absolutely LOVES swimming.  Whenever we get to the dog park, he immediately gets in the water then looks at us waiting for us to throw a stick or a ball, and then he swims out as far as possible to get it.  It’s the most adorable thing because his face is so serious the entire time.  Rooney is learning to love the water, which is also pretty cute to watch because she doesn’t exactly swim yet…it’s more of a gallup through the water.  I think she will get the hang of it soon though!

  • Dietetic Internship Orientation

Internship Orientation

This past Monday through Wednesday I was in Colorado for my Dietetic Internship orientation.  I really feel like I have a MUCH better understanding of how the internship will work over the next year and what is expected of me.  Now, I’m ready to dig in and learn! 🙂

I hope your month was wonderful!!

  1. I just put that vegan falafel on my menu for next week, ha! Do you mind telling me how you adapted it?

      Thanks, Lauren!! I adapted it by eliminating the onion and garlic completely and using chives 🙂 But I don’t remember the exact measurements. Sorry!! 🙂 Let me know what you try!
