I’ve seen a lot of new subscribes to the blog in the last month or so. If you are a new reader, welcome to my little community. I hope you will stay for a while, as I love sharing my life and love of food and fitness with all of you! For you newbies, every month or two I post about some things I’m loving lately, and today seems like a good day to share with you what I haven’t been able to get enough of so far this spring.
Barley on salads
It’s kind of hidden beneath all the fruit in this picture, but I seriously am loving the combination of barley on greens lately. Does anyone else like this combo? It gives my salads that little extra to keep them from being too boring, and it fills me up.
My new flats
I rarely wear heels anymore (not worth it to my poor bunion), so anytime I can find a pair of comfortable AND cute flats, I’m all for it. Marshall’s FTW (for the win). Plus, they are blue. I’m really branching out.
Larabar ALT bars
This week I got an unexpected delivery to my doorstep: the new alternative protein bars by Larabar! Larabars are one of my go to choices when it comes to a bar, and they just came out with their first ever bar with added protein. A lot of other bars use soy or whey protein, but Larabar chose to use an alternative protein source instead, peas! These are also vegan, gluten-free, dairy free, and non-GMO. Thank you, Larabar, for my yummy new treats!
You’ve probably seen me mention this in some of my workout posts lately, but I am seriously loving jumping rope (with an actual rope) for cardio workouts. It’s tough and a calorie torcher! I’m so glad we have the new ropes at the Y to use in classes.
Thera-Roll textured foam roller
And finally, my latest favorite foam roller. There are so many different types of foam rollers out there, but this baby is my latest find. The Thera-Roll is small enough to pack into a bag and carry around, and I’ve used it at work under my desk to roll under the arches of my feet. Hurts so good!
What have you guys been loving lately? Please share!
