Wooo! Even though it’s SUMMER so everyday is basically the weekend, Saturday always seems to feel extra- special! The past few days have been sooo much fun with BEAUTIFUL WEATHER so I haven’t had a time to get on here- but now it’s time to play catch upp :)
THURSDAY I went to Six flags with a bunch of my friends from school! Even though I’ve been away from school for like a week- I miss them so much so it was nice to see everyone! We also all live pretty close to each other so the trip worked out well :) The lines weren’t so bad because it was a weekday, so the longest we waited was like a 1/2 hour (I timed it because I time everything…lol) I went on Kingda Ka and El Toro 3 times, it was great :) Do you guys like roller coasters? I lovee them!
YESTERDAY, was a BEAUTIFUL day, so I spent most of it outsidee :) I started my day out with my own Protein Pancakes Concoction:
1/2 c. Oats, 1 egg, 1/2 scoop Vanilla protein powder, 1 banana, 1/2 tsp. baking powder, Cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract, TOPPED WITH: Almond Butter and Greek Yogurt
Then I put all of that stuff together in the food processor & created a pancake-y texture which I put on to the skillet, Then BAM!!:
I then ran some errands and then came back home to get my tan on!!
I got hungry so I decided to make myself a snack of an apple with cinnamon and Fage, but in the process of Apple cutting, a terrible, terrible thing happened:
MY APPLE CUTTER BROKE!!!!!!!!!! :( HUGE FAIL.
I guess my apple was super tough and the METAL on the cutter couldn’t handle the strength of my Pink Lady :(… Regardless, I overcame and took the metal pieces out of the apple and enjoyed my snack:
Then a WONDERFUL surprise came in the mail for me!!
The Amazing Folks over at POM Wonderful sent me a package of 100% Pomegranate Juice bottles!
DID YOU KNOW?:
- POM has antioxidants more potent than those in Red Wine, Grape juice, Blueberry Juice, Green Tea, and numerous other beverages
- Pomegranates are some of the earliest cultivated fruits
- POM can improve cardiovascular health and increase blood flow to the heart
For more info on POM Wonderful, visit their website: http://www.pomwonderful.com/ for more info!!
I brought one of them with me to my friend’s house yesterday as an energy booster and my friends all loved the shape of the bottle! I enjoy the taste of pomegranate so I really liked it. It’s pretty sweet, but there is no added sugar (Or added anything), but next time I have it, I’m thinking I’m going to blend it up with ice to dilute the sweetness a little! Now the question is- Does anyone know any good recipes with pomegranate juice? Smoothies? Anything? I’m interested in all suggestions so send ‘em here!! I want to experiment with this stuff! :)
Thanks again, POM Wonderful!!
Then, last night, me and a few of my friends from high school that I haven’t seen in FOREVER went out to Olive Garden
I got the Venetian Apricot Chicken… It’s what i always get because It’s SO FREAKIN’ GOOD! Do you ever go to a restaurant and get the same thing every time you go there? That’s my thang at Olive Garden, I don’t even try anything else!
What’s your favorite “Fast Food” or Chain Restaurant? Mine may be Olive Garden (I’m a sucker for the salad and bread sticks!)… my mom would kill me for saying that, though, because it’s not “real Italian” food! haha
Alright well I am off to the dentist for a cleaning (woo!) and then I’m going to my friend Dylan’s house to go chill by the pool with a few friends (Summer = LOVE.)
Have an amazing weekend!!!!!!
