The simple things in life

It's 48 degrees outside. It's also rainy, cold and windy. Gloom.

It's 66 degrees in my apartment. I refuse to turn on the heat. I'm stubborn like that. Chill.

But my warm cup o' joe is doing a mighty fine job warming up this body of mine. I think Mr. lasting-for-nearly-5-days-cold is finally on his way out the door. I'm ready to feel like myself again!

Simple things

My day started just as I like it. You see, I'm a simple gal. I'm from Texas. We may like things big but we also like things to be simple.

Breakfast today was simple. Snack tomorrow will be simple.

Basics: bagel thin or toast, slather of pumpkin butter, slather of peanut butter and 1/2  banana



Good fuel.

What else do you need in life?

My other simple meals and snacks:

  • banana smeared with peanut butter (notice the PB obsession!)
  • apple smeared in hummus with a slice of cheese
  • slice of toast with a pat of butter + an egg cooked over medium + salt + pepper
  • greek yogurt + fruit + granola
  • homemade pumpkin chocolate chip bars

Those are my absolute favorite go-tos. I really don't need anything else in life other than those options when hunger strikes. And of course there is a chocolate option in there. Chocolate is fuel. Enough said.

The other simple thing in my life is smoothies. I know. I talk about smoothies alot. Alot. Maybe too much?


I do have a love affair with them. But don't worry- my husband knows. And he accepts it.

In my world, my smoothies need "bulk." They need to satisfy me. I need to feel fed after I drink one.

My go-to smoothie ingredient is Shakeology. If you know me, you've heard about this product. I love it. In my opinion, it is the best protein powder/meal replacement option out there. Quality ingredients = Quality body. So imagine my excitement this week when Beachbody created two calendars with 60 Shakeology smoothie recipes? Oh yes. That was a good day.

So, check out this new calendar stock full of ideas and tasty ingredients to throw in that blender! I'm doing it. You should do it.

Now I'm hungry. :)

Interested in Shakeology? I'll send you a sample for free, just 'cause I know you will love it!

  1. I adore simple meals. I think they are my favorites. Not only because they are quick and easy to make, but I really love being able to taste all the flavors fully.

    Thanks for that. My son has a terrible aversion to eating raw fruit , so I make the fruit into smoothies for him and then he loves it! I also found some great smoothie recipes here and thought I'd share – lots of other great ideas there.
