Favorite Flavors of the Week

by Lauren on January 24, 2012

Tuesdays are usually quite dull.  I’m not exactly sure why it works out that way, but I find that Tuesday is always the least exciting day of my week.

So I’m making an attempt to liven things up with a few favorite flavors of the week.

Starting with dessert of course!

Favorite Dessert of The Week:

Berries and Cottage Cheese with (Almond Butter Granola Ball->recipe here)


Favorite Playlist of the Week: 

The Head & The Heart- Down in the Valley
James Morrison- Better Man
Citizen Cope- Sideways
Norah Jones- The Long Day is Over
Jason Mraz ft. Colbee Callet – Lucky
Adele- Best for Last
Ray Lamontagne- Let it Be Me
Ernie Halter- Whisper
Keane- Show Me What I’m Looking For
John Mayer- Gravity
Amos Lee- In the Arm of a Woman

This playlist is beautiful to unwind with at the end of the day.  I listen to it while cooking dinner, even better sipping on a glass of wine.


Favorite Breakfast of the Week: 

  • Kashi Go Lean
  • Vanilla Protein Powder
  • Dry Oats
  • Banana 
  • Blueberries
  • Almond Slices
  • Flax
  • Sunflower Nut Butter
  • Almond Milk 
I can not get enough of this cereal bowl.  Quite a lot for a bowl of cereal but I wouldn’t have it any other way.  It’s loaded with texture, flavor, fiber and protein.  An ideal breakfast of sorts.


Favorite Sip of the Week:

Green tea + lemongrass + spearmint = yum!


Favorite Workout of the Week: 

30 Min Express Body Pump Copy Cat Workout
100 Squats
50 Chest Press (lying on back with bar or dumb bells)
4 Cling n’ Press > 3 bent over rows> rest for a beat > 7 wide grip rows (with bar) x 3
10 tricep dips > tricep extension right arm (5 lb dumb bell) > 10 tricep dips > tricep extension left arm (5 lb dumb bell)
10 right leg lunge, 10 squats, 10 left leg lunge x 2
10 bicep curls, 10 bottom half curls, 10 bicep curls
10 Overhead Press (bar or dumb bell), 10 latteral raises (with dumb bell) x 2
10 Crunches, 10 bicycle crunches
I made this up over the weekend when I realized I wasn’t going to make my body pump class.  I was actually quite impressed with myself at how well rounded and intense it turned out.
