Happy Friday everyone!
We made it! YAY! I’m so excited to head over to the Rock and Roll Seattle Expo later on today! Make sure to stop by the ClassPass booth if you’re there and say hello!
Since my internet is acting up AGAIN and I’m writing this in my phone, let’s get into my Friday favorites! Make sure to share yours in the comment section below. I’d love to hear all about what you’ve been loving lately!
Brownie + Cookie = WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE?!?!
(I love them so much that I didn’t even get a picture to share before they were all gone!)
My mom had these at home when I went to visit a few weeks ago and I immediately fell in love with them. I saw them at the grocery store by my apartment the other day and immediately threw them in my basket without giving it a second thought. I’ve been back to the grocery store another time this week just to buy more of them so I decided that I need to try to make them myself. Every girl needs her own go-to dessert recipe right?!!? I’m bound and determined to make the brookie MINE!
Stay tuned for an update on this! 🙂
2. Fruit infused water
Now obviously I can’t just sit around and eat brookies all day without having something fun to drink, so I’ve been balancing it out with fruit infused water this week. I have an overabundance of fruit in my fridge this week so I’ve been using some of it to help flavor my water as a special treat. It definitely makes drinking plain old boring water a little more like a treat with some fruit thrown into the mix.
(RIP: this water bottle mysteriously disappeared during my move.)
So far this week I’ve had:
Tuesday: boring old water
Friday: Lemon cucumber
I normally only really drink water anyways since I don’t drink coffee or soda, but I have trouble staying excited about plain water during the summer months for some reason. I always crave something with a little more flavor, but there’s only so much Gatorade G2 a person can handle before needing a serious intervention! Enter fruit infused water to the rescue to cure the summer water blues!
3. Target dresses
Since I sent back the two dresses that came in my StitchFix this month and the current temperatures in Seattle have been warm enough to make pants no longer an option, I picked up a couple of dresses last weekend from Target and I’ve been loving them this week. And BONUS, I got both dresses from Target for less than one of the dresses from StitchFix. SCORE!
Since being dairy-free-ish for around 6 or so years now, I’ve come to really appreciate good non-dairy substitutes. I always ate a lot of yogurt when I was younger, so it was one thing I had a really hard time replacing when I went dairy-free was yogurt. I’ve tried a ton of non-dairy yogurt options but have only recently found a couple ones that I really enjoy. So when I went to the store a few weeks ago and noticed they started carrying a new dairy-free yogurt option that actually had some protein in it, I got really excited and couldn’t wait to give it a try.
The soy yogurts I have tasted in the past have been horrible, so I was skeptical, but willing to give it a try. Good thing I did because I’ve been loving this stuff lately!
5. Peanut butter rice cakes
One of my friends at work is constantly eating rice cakes and so I decided to give them a try too. Since eating dry rice cakes is about as appealing as well nothing, I decided to smear some peanut butter on them. It was delicious AND gluten free! SCORE!
Dairy-free people: What are your favorite dairy-free foods, tips or tricks?
What’s something fun you have planned for the weekend?
Are you currently training for any races?
