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!!!!!!
