I can tell I’m getting close to being finished with the pregnancy journey because this week, I was actually drawn to some semi-healthier recipes (with the usual indulgences of course), alcoholic beverages, normal clothes and workouts! Here we go…
Favorite Dinner Entree. Cheesecake Factory Lightened-Up Sundried Tomato Fettucini. This recipe looks really good to me considering I’m really craving the carbs lately. I’m thinking you could use rice noodles (if you want to avoid gluten) or whole wheat noodles too. Where there’s a will, there’s a way to make things healthier.
Favorite Workout. Treadmill Workout. I CAN.HARDLY.WAIT. to kill myself on a treadmill in the near future. I realize that I’m going to be exhausted and I’m fully prepared to give myself the necessary time to recover from labor and delivery, but when the time is right, I am so excited to feel burning muscles and sweat! My first few workouts are going to be quite humbling!
Favorite Indulgence. Rolo Brownie Bites. I told you there had to be an indulgence in here too! Here we have caramel and chocolate… perfection!
Favorite Fruity Dessert. Raspberry Lemonade Bars. One of my absolute favorite desserts is lemon bars, so these are like a twist to those. They look great for summer picnics and BBQ’s.
Favorite Home Color Palette. That aqua color is pretty much my favorite color, but I really like it paired with the watermelon color and then the grey. Our bedroom is similar to this, but is missing the watermelon color. I might have to incorporate that. HMMMM…
Favorite Breakfast Muffins. Coconut Sunbutter Muffins. Emily with Daily Garnish is probably my favorite blogger. I love her recipes as they are usually healthy and yummy. The chlorogenic acid in sunflower seeds (sunbutter) and baking soda react and create a green hue in these muffins, but they are perfectly safe and natural (as Emily said herself).
Favorite Outfit. I love this look and I get to wear normal clothes again soon!!
Favorite Adult Beverage. Easy Margaritas. Just pair some lime sorbet with some tequila, sugar and lime wedges and you have yourself a margarita!
That’s it for the Friday favorites this week! I hope everyone has a great weekend. We are on high watch for labor (although I think it might be a week or so).
