Ready for Girls Weekend + WIAW

These past couple of weeks have been insanely busy…I’m excited, motivated, but also exhausted, so a “Girls Weekend” away on Thursday is just what this girl needs. The ocean, salt water, wine, seafood, long runs, and sleep are calling my name! It’ll be good to disconnect, spend time with my girlfriends, Kala, and just soak up that ocean breeze. High-Fives!

So let’s talk FOOD, because it is another “What I Ate Wednesday!” Thanks to the lovely Jenn for always hosting! This past week has been all about cleaning out the fridge before I head out of town. I hate wasting food, so it’s all about getting creative, using all those veggies, and just throwing it all together and hoping for the best. So far so good…I’ve been eating a lot of cauliflower and mushrooms! HA!

Early Morning Snack:




Do you get creative and use everything up in your fridge or do you end up throwing it out?

    • AWESOME! I hate throwing out good food. Sometimes it happens, but I try my hardest not to let it happen. You just need to get creative and use lots of spices…I use a lot of salsa. HA!

    We definitely try to eat every thing in the fridge! I hate having things go to waste. We usually end up doing the whole “garbage salads,” and buy enough servings of protein to fill in the cracks. 🙂

    • LOVE that name “garbage salads”! I have never heard that one before…Definitely need to use that one! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
