I had a nice weekend of exercise and catching up with friends from out of town. I also got a glorious 11 hours of sleep Saturday when someone super sweet suggested that he sleep on the couch with the pets so that nothing could disturb me for an entire night (I'm a light sleeper, so our pets tend to wake me up fairly frequently, and it's been rough lately).

My Favorite Things: Starbucks!
I love Starbucks. I know, a white blonde girl who likes Starbucks? How original! But I do, I love Starbucks. They have a magnetic pull on me. Whenever I'm out walking Mason with Sourabh and I see one, it's like a force field pulling me in to spend $5 on a cup of soy milk in a cute cup...
But seriously, I love Starbucks for more than their fancy drinks and holiday cups. In fact, I don't even like the fancy drinks all that much (but I DO love those holiday cups). My favorite part of Starbucks is actually the fact that I can reliably get something healthy there when I'm rushing around or traveling. Running errands and need a snack? Pick up a KIND bar and banana. Starbucks has really stepped up their healthy food options in the past year, and these are some of my favorite picks.
Starbucks Perfect Oatmeal
|"hearty, 100% whole-grain oatmeal"|
Protein Bistro Box
|"cage-free egg, white Cheddar cheese, honey peanut butter, multigrain muesli bread, apples and grapes."|
I always like putting together a plate of different items when I make lunch for myself, so this basically does the job for me. Lots of protein, healthy fats, whole grains, and some fruit make this a nice lunch option. And at 380 calories, it can definitely serve as a small lunch.
Goat Cheese and Garden Veggies Bistro Box
|"vegetable medley served with goat cheese, tzatziki dip and cranberry almond crackers"|
Spinach & Feta Breakfast Wrap
|"a wheat wrap filled with cage-free egg white, spinach, feta cheese and tomatoes."|
Roasted Vegetable Panini
|"roasted zucchini, eggplant, and red peppers with baby spinach and provolone cheese on focaccia bread"|
