Revisiting Strange But Good

Normalcy* has returned.

*I use that term loosely.

Vegas and I made it back from Vegas leaving the 115 degree temps behind. ¬†The sun is out again in San Diego and it’s a balmy 75 degrees.

I feel like I'm on fire (ball). Thank you Las Vegas. ūüĒ•

Things I’m Loving + WIAW

I haven’t felt like blogging lately.

Which is why on Monday I just didn’t.¬†

If you don’t have anything to say, I find it’s best not to force it. ¬†No that there isn’t a lot of awesome going on… I’m just busy living life!

Here’s a little bit of some things I’ve been loving…

Leg day… but I’m not going to lie. I still might order this shirt and take a shot.

Strawberry Cinnamon Protein Pancakes + WIAW

I lost Vegas.

Not literally, thank god. 

We’ve been doing a little 21 day reset. ¬†Vegas said she’d give it a week and then see if she wanted to keep going. ¬†She lasted a week like a champion… but then I lost her.

Actually, we both went a little off the reservation Saturday night. ¬†I got back on track Sunday, but Vegas¬†was done. ¬†She’s still been basically eating whatever I eat… just with a side of caffeine and peanut M&Ms. ¬†She had no complaints about the protein pancakes we had for breakfast (more on that below).

Resetting My Diet + WIAW

All good things must come to an end.

Until I figure out a way to live in Europe.

I’m a firm believer in balance and enjoying life. ¬†Enjoying is just what we did in Greece. ¬†There were tons of good eats, alllll the drinks, and a nice break from the gym (though we walked a LOT). ¬†Vegas and I had a blast and soaked up every moment. ¬†Coming off of that I have no regrets, but feel ready to get back to a healthier diet.

Cinnamon Roll Protein Mug Cake [Recipe]

Cinnamon rolls kill me.

That smell in the mall…¬†Pavlovian response.

It’s been years since I’ve gotten one, but walking past a certain cinnamon roll chain had me¬†craving a cinnamon roll. ¬†I swear they put crack in those things.

In my shipment from About Time, I¬†received¬†a few proteins to sample. ¬†I decided it was the perfect opportunity for a little mug cake experiment! ¬†Mug cakes may seem normal to many of you… but to the “normal” world I think it qualified as strange. ¬†But good. ūüėČ

About Time ProHydrate Tropical Protein Slushie

Did you ever look forward to gas station snacks as a kid?

Please tell me I wasn’t the only one with trashy taste as a child.¬†

These days I dread road trip food – especially after my recent¬†cross-country drive. ¬†However, when I was a kid I loved stopping at the QT for a giant slushie. ¬†It’s not that I don’t like a slushie as an adult, but I try to avoid the onslaught of chemicals.

When I received a box full of all natural supplements from About Time, I was immediately drawn to their new ProHydrate Protein Water.  It screamed #strangebutgood protein slushie!

Cinco de Taco Tuesday [WIAW]

Two bloggers go food shopping…

I can’t even narrow down the punchlines.¬†

Lucie and I had a food shopping adventure to the¬†Pacific Beach Farmer’s Market and then to Whole Foods. ¬†We were actually quite well-behaved! ¬†Even between the two of us we spent less than $100* in Whole Paycheck Foods.

*That’s unheard of for me – just ask Vegas.

Spring into Strange (But Good)

I always look forward to spring.

Except the pollen.  Who knew San Diego had pollen?!

Spring food is the best. ¬†Don’t get me wrong, I love a roasted winter squash and the orange glow that comes with it. ¬†The lighter, fresh spring fare has my heart though.

Today’s #strangebutgood is a round up of some of my favorite spring recipes. ¬†Some stranger than others. ¬†All good. ¬†In my not-so-humble opinion.
