Hi guys! Have you all been enjoying your weekends? I’ve had a lot of homework and studying to do, since I have two tests this week (ick!) but I’m looking forward to the end of the week…because my spring break officially starts! I really need a little break from school, so this will be the perfect time to relax, refresh and get my cook on in the kitchen. I’m super excited!
As usual, it’s time for my monthly recap post. I also just realized it’s my 100th post–I can’t believe I’ve made it this far! I really want to do a special giveaway type post, but that may have to wait a little while. I do want to thank you guys for your support and comments over the past several months, so hopefully I can do a giveaway soon!
Best Discussion: The Right One For You
Not gonna lie, I was a little worried about the responses I would get when I posted this. But you guys were really awesome in discussing what you think about the whole paleo vs. veganism vs. whatever debate. Everyone’s different and obviously we can’t all eat the same.
Best Recipe: Frozen PB Fudge
I was surprised by how popular my super simple ‘fudge’ recipe. I love them, especially the vanilla variation, and I love that they can easily be made in a dorm room. Sometimes the easiest recipes are the best.
Best WIAW: A Day of Raw Challenge
I think it’s fun to challenge ourselves to eat differently every once in a while, and since I’ve been interested in raw foodism for a few months, I thought going raw for a day would be an interesting thing to try out. It definitely got me to break out of my food ruts and while there were some things I missed (since they’re cooked), it was still a good challenge that I’d like to try out another time.
Best New Food: KIND bars
I actually tried a lot of new products last month, from Coach’s Oats to avocado hummus and Arctic Zero, but KIND bars were definitely my fave. I am a sucker for bars, especially ones that don’t have many ingredients and are pretty healthy. The peanut butter & strawberry KIND bar definitely fits that bill, with only 8 ingredients, 7 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber. Plus it was just super tasty, like a PB&J in bar form. Definitely need to buy these again!
Best Photo: Starbucks Valentine’s Cup
Yes, I am obsessed with Instagram/Lightbox and have the apps on my phone and iPod so I can make my pictures look cool and vintage. I also love this picture because the Starbucks Valentine’s cups were so adorable. What can I say, I love anything seasonal!
What was your favorite memory from February? What’s the best (or worst) new product you tried last month?
