Let’s talk meal planning. I posted this photo on my Facebook page on Sunday night just to show you that I do a lot of my food prep on the weekend. It definitely makes things easier throughout the week and keeps me from grabbing things that aren’t as nutritious.
I’ve got protein, complex carbs, and some veggies (I prefer my veggies raw so I don’t really have to do much prepping for that!). I usually eat my protein in the form of chicken, turkey, egg whites and protein powders. For my complex carbs I will typically eat oats, pancakes, sweet potato, and Ezekiel bread. I know I should venture out into more exciting things but these are my favourites! Finally, veggies will most often be raw (cucumber, celery). A lot of cooked veggies weird me out and I can only really do green beans or asparagus at the moment. I’m working on it!
Onto the good stuff.
A while back I came across a really sweet company called Though Blossoms. Falon was having a giveaway for a beautiful hand stamped bracelet that I couldn’t seem to get off my mind! I didn’t win the giveaway but I contacted Heather (creator and genius behind Thought Blossoms) and she kindly accepted my request to feature her product on my blog too!!
Heather makes both bracelets and necklaces that can be stamped with letters, words, flowers, hearts, you name it! She is so creative and is always coming up with new ideas. There are also a variety of colours to choose from (for both the plate and the cord).
I sent Heather a few different quotes and words that I liked and she chose “MAKE IT COUNT”. I am so happy with it because it can apply to so many areas of life! Make every moment count, every workout, every run, every CHOICE… It really is a great little reminder for me.
Onto the better stuff.
Heather is giving away an item of choice (up to $25 – most items are less than this so you will have a lot to choose from!) to one lucky reader!!
Just check out her Etsy store and tell me (in a comment below) which item you would pick if you won!
Want an extra entry? Of course you do! Like the Thought Blossoms Facebook page (and don’t forget to tell me you did!).
Contest ends Monday, January 30th! Good luck!
