5 Things Friday #5

Hey everyone! I have finally emerged from the foggy state I was in for 2 days with that massive headache. It took an obscene amount of food and some extra sleep to make myself feel better. Extra food and extra sleep - could be worse, right?

Anyway... Here we go with this week's 5 faves:

1) Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Kind Bars - Just discovered a box of these in the snack stash at work today. OMG! So yummy! And unlike many other bars I have eaten, this one actually helped to quell my hunger for a while.

2) Half marathons - I am all about the 13.1 right now! In the throes of training for the Hotlanta Half, and I just signed up again for the Atlanta Half on Thanksgiving day. I love this race! The course is a bit tough in the second half, but it's such a perfect day for distance running. Get up early, burn 1,000+ calories, and then stuff your face guilt free. Love it!



3) Getting back to basics - Although I totally failed miserably at taking pictures of most of them, I really did eat some yummy, simple, plant-based meals this week that were free of faux meat. Things like refried bean and black bean tacos - mmmm! Which brings me to the next thing on the list...

4) Food for Life Sprouted Corn Tortillas - Picked these up at Whole foods last weekend. I've been eating Ezekiel bread for a long time, and have eaten the Ezekiel tortillas before, but this was my first time trying these. Delicious! I used them for my tacos, but they would make a great tostada or semi-homemade tortilla chips too. And check out the very short, very clean ingredient list:

Ingredients
Organic Sprouted Corn, Filtered Water, Sea Salt, Lime.

5) Unofficial summer Fridays - We don't really have summer Fridays at work, but today I had everything wrapped up for the week by 3 pm. The sun was shining and daddy took a summer Friday too, so I headed out to start the weekend a little early. Little things like surprising the girls and showing up together to pick them up from daycare are the best! :) We capped off the week with dinner at our favorite Asian restaurant.

All in all, a pretty good week here. Let the weekend craziness begin! Running, shopping, and playdates - oh my!

What are you loving this week?

What are you up to this weekend?
