Lululemon, Pancakes, Soup, and Updates

December 10, 2013

I love Tuesday mornings. As I sip my dandelion/ginger tea and chomp on some eggs, I cruise through all the new stuff to hit the lululemon site. Tuesdays are their “new release” days. Man, talk about wanting to spend some major money! I’m loving their new patterns and colors– here are a couple of my favorites:

Speaking of mornings, I made some KILLER pancakes this past weekend. I know Mark would agree–they’re our favorite grain-free pancakes yet. Check out the recipe here: Against All Grain Pumpkin Pancakes with Bacon And Pecans

ANNNNND I made some creamy, warm, buttery cauliflower soup last night. My world was a bit rocked from a difficult workout so anything comfort-related was needed. I made this cauliflower soup (I added in a bunch of bacon pieces!), grilled up some chicken and threw it on top of a warm, chopped salad, wrapped up in my favorite blanket and watched Mad Men with Mark on the couch. All of that made everything better.


I found the recipe on one of my favorite blogs to get recipes from: Stir It Up. I’ve written about this blog and some of its recipes before, but I can’t say enough good things about it! The woman who writes the blog sure knows what she’s doing in the kitchen. (And she has incredibly beautiful children!) I found this recipe to be very simple and very delicious.

Here’s the recipe for Stir It Up’s Cauliflower Soup!

On a totally different note, here are some announcements:

For St. Augustine folks:

  • I am hosting a Goal-Setting Workshop on Tuesday, December 17th at 6:45pm at GO HQ (1741 Dobbs Road, Unit 13). The cost is $5.
  • I am beginning a Corporate Wellness class on January 7th at GO HQ. $120 per month. Tu/Th 6:30-7:30pm. Optional Saturday class 9am-10am. This class also has the opportunity for your employer to pay $25 toward your monthly dues. Let me know if you want in on that!

For everyone:

  • I’m starting a really amazing blogging project at the beginning of the new year! It is going to be centered around re-creating some very famous recipes from the likes of The Pioneer Woman (Ree Drummond), Emeril, Bobby Flay, Ina Garten, and a few others. Most of the re-creations are going to be gluten-free and “healthier” versions of the original recipes. It’s a lot of work (it takes a lot of mess ups before the correct recipe is made!) but really fun. Folded into this, I’m working on my photography skills, so it ties in nicely with this project as well. Fun twists on famous dishes and great pictures–that’s what you can expect. 🙂
