Why hello, good people! My restaurant world life has been insaaaaane the past month and this lady hasn’t had a day off in weeks. It goes without saying that I’m super excited to be heading to Bar Harbor, Maine this weekend! I really just want to eat wild blueberry pancakes and sleep. If you have any restaurant recommendations, send them my way!
I’ve been helping open Alchemy at 7am so I usually shove breakfast in my face when we have a lull around 9:30am. Overnight Steel Cut Oatmeal to the rescue! It’s so nice to just throw it in a Tupperware in the morning and run out the door. I microwave it before I eat it and top it with strawberries, mulberries, and gobs of almond butter.
I just got this amazing white Yeti coffee cup because I hate having to reheat my coffee three times in the morning. It’s been a life saver! I told myself that if I don’t lose it in the next month I’ll treat myself to the tumbler version. Also random but how amazing is this PUMPKIN DOORMAT?!
I’m been working at Alchemy on the weekends which means prepping food for the week is a distant dream. Luckily we’ve got yummy restaurants to enjoy for lunch! Today I had a Quinoa Kale Salad topped with avocado, sriracha, and a big scoop of our tuna made with local sauerkraut, chopped apples, Dijon, olive oil, and red wine vinegar.
A couple hours later I devoured a smoothie made with 1 cup frozen blueberries, 1/4 an avocado, 1 tbsp cacao, splash of vanilla, a scoop of my favorite chocolate plant protein, 1 tsp spirulina, a couple of ice cubes, and almond milk. I topped it with a crumbled peanut butter cacao no-bake bite and granola. Dreamy!
Dinner was my favorite Chipotle Chili with Sweet Potatoes & Brussels Sprouts with cornbread (I make a half batch in an 8×8 inch pan and bake for 17 minutes) plus a big salad on the side. I make this chili all winter long and we love it!
I got a big package from my friends at Simple Mills so I’ve been chowing down on their cookies every night. I had several of the double chocolate ones last night with a glass of chilly almond milk and it was heaven.
I wore my Alchemy tee-shirt most days the past week but here’s a couple of cute outfits I snuck in!
The best black jeans ever, jean button up (runs very big), tortoise shell hoops, and black flats. My go-to black slingback flats are on sale for 30% off and are really comfy! Love the bow detail in the back.
We had a wedding Saturday night which was a nice way to disconnect and dance our butts off. I wore this tie-back jumpsuit and these amazingly comfortable and adorable suede heels with these earrings. Highly recommend! Also, I’ve learned from experience that wearing your hair in a low bun (AKA not doing it) for weeks on end makes it look super luscious when you actually have time to style it!!
Have a fabulous rest of the week, dearest pals.
