Favs: June 2019

READING

Thought I would switch things up a bit for this category instead of a book this time! I receive email updates from the Environmental Working Group. They keep me up to date on recent studies and products as they relate to our health and environment. The Environmental Working Group’s mission is to empower people to live halthier lives in a healthier environment. With breakthrough research and education, they drive consumer choice and civic action. Check out the website here!

 

LISTENING

ICYMI: I recently did a podcast interview with Allie Reaves titled A Holistic approach to Success! You can listen to it here! In my opinion, every single woman should listen!

@just.ingredients has an awesome page where she compares ingredients of similar items. I really like it because she compares a wide range of products from food to beauty items to bug sprays, etc.

 

STYLE

Last month I was raving about my ABLE shorts which I absolutely love. But, let me tell you about my Lululemon shorts that I wear more than anything in the spring/summer. These shorts were designed with athletic quads in mind. *insert praise hands* For real though, I’ve been wearing these for YEARS, and they are the only athletic shorts I will buy. I can’t even count how many I have. Check them out here! 

Y’all are all loving my sunglasses too! Here they are! I’ve had them for several years, I am really bad about wearing the same pair all of the time. Working on it.

KITCHEN

I love a good refreshing beverage in the summer. I made this yummy lemonade recipe earlier this spring, but lately I’ve been siping on Rishi blueberry hibiscus and peppermint tea, ICED. I will brew water in our electric kettle, steep the tea for 5 min, then let cool. I typically do this in the morning so I can enjoy my drink later in the day! I use one bag of the blueberry and one bag of the peppermint together. It’s super refreshing.

What we’re eating: July 13-18

Coming at you with some new ideas for easy meals! This week what we’re eating looks a little different with a new take on chicken enchiladas! We have also been obsessed with peaches from the peach truck (the best in my opinion) and watermelon. We have been knocking one watermelon out in just a couple of days. They are so good for you!

Emergency Snacks

There you are, its 2:30 in the afternoon, you are borderline hangry about to walk into your next meeting waving the white flag because you need something to eat stat. You honestly don’t care what it is because, well, it’s an emergency. But, thank goodness, you’ve got a stash of emergency snacks in your desk drawer to reach for!

Being prepared is key. I love the saying fail to plan, plan to fail! We don’t wing it over here, y’all. We are prepared! So, I’ve put together this list of emergency snacks to keep on hand, in your purse, car, desk, carry on, etc.

What we’re eating: July 6-12

Back to basics over here for what we’re eating this week! I needed the guess work taken out of the grocery list this week since I used Instacart! The only thing I hate about using it is that sometimes they are out of items and I have to go back a few days later. I guess that could happen if I went on my own too. I will say, my shoppers always call with questions,  and are awesome about picking produce exactly like I instructed them in the notes! So, let’s get to this weeks basics over here!
