Friday Favs, Finds, & Food!

Hello wonderful people! I didn’t snap a photo of our sunrise, but several of my friends did, and it was absolutely breathtaking! I hope it greeted you this morning as well. I have a lot of fun things and food to share with you, so let’s get to it, shall we?

First up is my copy of Anti-Diet by Christy Harrison! I’m so excited to dive into this book.

I was accepted into Kodiak Cakes RD Program and received my complimentary box of goodies! I love their products and am grateful to have been included.

I made my first ever chicken ‘ dumplings following Kylie’s recipe, and it is incredible! I used chicken bone broth + water for more flavor, and I made ours gf. Next time we’re going to double the carrots because we’re huge carrot lovers. HIGHLY recommend this!

I made this taco casserole from Delish, and my gosh it is stellar! I have been really proud of the meals I’ve made this week. The changes I made were to use more onion and garlic, Beyond Meat ground “meat” product (because we had it, and I love to incorporate vegan and animal protein into our meals), all shredded sharp cheddar, and I omitted the chips on top.

Enjoyed with avocado, sour cream, hot sauce, and pickled jalapenos + cuke on the side. Cook once, eat multiple times has been the theme this week, and I’m here for it!

I shared this on Instagram, my pro tip: make brunch-like meals any day of the week! Not only will the day feel extra special, but these foods won’t feel off limits or only allowed on the weekends. Weekends aren’t for “cheat” days. By not giving yourself full permission on all foods, the only thing you’re cheating is yourself out of creative, satisfying meals. The deets: leftover seasoned Aldi salmon, wilted spinach, seasoned sunny side up egg, Dr. Praeger’s four potato hash browns with ketchup, and a Cara Cara orange.

This sundae was phenomenal! I layered leftover TJ’s double fudge gf quinoa loaf cake (say that five times fast) with So Delicious pb and raspberry oat milk ice cream. SO. GOOD.

I ordered this blush highlighter duo by Pixi from, where else, Amazon, and I’ve been adding it over my blush for a pretty finish. I love how light and sparkly it is without being too much!

Matt’s dad donated to an organization one time, and they keep sending him things. Matt brought these two cute pairs of socks home to me, and I love the patterns!

I discovered this sweater all thanks to Julie, and I know it will be a staple for me! I purchased two, one in olive and one in charcoal. I’m wearing it today with this black skirt, neck scarf, and flats. I love all of these pieces and recommend them!

I also upgraded my case to an Otterbox with a pop-socket. Love how bright and cheerful it is!

I tend to bounce around from time-to-time on my shampoo and conditioner, and so far I love these! They are cruelty free and smell wonderful.

Matt ordered this monocular for us to spot owls. 😉

That’s all for now, but I’ll be sharing some more fun scores from Amazon next week. Have the best day and weekend ahead!
