These Are What Weekends Are Made Of

by Lauren on March 18, 2012

What a refreshing weekend.  The next few weekends, I will be traveling so I made the most out of this one and did absolutely everything I had been meaning to do but kept putting off. 



Sleep In! 

Breakfasts on weekends just taste better when you have all the time in the world to enjoy them.


2 Kashi Waffles, Vanilla TJ's 0% Greek Yogurt, Banana, Raspberries, Almond Butter, Chia, Sliced Almonds 




Run Outside! 

I finally laced up my sneakers to got in a wonderful 4 mile run outside.  It has been months since I've run outside and it felt incredible.  I forgot to turn on my GPS on my Garmin but I ran four about 45 minutes, guessing I covered 4-5 miles. 

Dress For Summer! 


Oh yes, bright colors are in this season and I was rocking them all weekend.  Nothing makes me more happy than to be wearing sun dresses and wedges in March. 


A Trip to the Farmers Market! 

I had no plans on Saturday so I actually had the entire afternoon to leisurely enjoy the city of Lancaster.  I visited the Central Market, browsed shops, ate an amazing vegan wrap from an adorable cafe, bought myself some gorgeous roses, sipped on a carrot, apple, and wheat grass juice and loved every single second of it all. 


I was getting tired of my Pumpkin Protein Bars and decided to try a new variation.  Banana Protein Muffins.  Three different kinds because I couldn't decide what I wanted and muffins are perfect for customizing. 


Discover a New Favorite Lunch


It was amazing.  The end. 


In case you haven't noticed, I make salads for a living.  Or else, I probably should.  It's become my favorite past time. 

It was definitely one of the best weekends I've had in awhile. I feel relaxed, refreshed, and ready for the next few weeks of craziness. 

Hoping your's was just as wonderful as mine. 


In Case You Missed It: I'm having a giveaway to try Trop50's new Red Orange Juice.  Click here to enter!  You have until Tuesday.

    I LOVE your outfit! The turquoise/orangy/coral color combination is my favorite this year. Please tell me you have a recommendation for a good self tanning lotion because your skin looks amazing too 🙂 And yes, your salads are making me hungry right now! Yum!

    1. Lauren says:

      Thanks!! Actually, I think it’s the lighting that’s making my skin look so dark. I’m definitely not that tan but I do use a Jergan’s Natural Glow lotion and Bare Minerals bronzers. Oh and spray tans are a wonderful thing. 🙂

  3. Girl, you look gorgeous in those summer colors! 🙂
    Do you have a recipe for those banana protein muffins? I could use a good protein muffin recipe (that I can SUCCESSFULLY make…)

    1. Lauren says:

      Thanks girl! I will post the recipe soon. It was surprisingly REALLY easy and if I can make them, than anyone can. Trust me! 😉
