Hi Friends, here’s a look at our week!
We finally picked out and assembled the boys’ Christmas gift from Stacy’s mom! They are in love with this playground and already talking about a slumber party in “the tree fort”. We’re thankful for yet another incentive to get them outdoors and active.
Spring in Virginia means the farmers markets are back in full force, and we are already taking full advantage! This past weekend our haul was sorrel (Cole’s favorite) and butter lettuce, mushrooms, asparagus, apples, fruit leathers, unsweetened probiotic-rich grass-fed yogurt, pastured eggs, and an impressive assortment of pickled veggies, including red onions, cucumbers, carrots, beets and radishes. Love, love, love being able to eat locally and support small farmers.
Also on the weekends, we work out (and love doing so in nice weather!). This Sunday our pre-workout meal was waffles. Waffles are serious business in our house! We tried Simple Mills new grain-free pancake & waffles mix (which was awesome) and then added MH Naturals Beef Protein powder to it, to up the protein (which was even more awesome), and finally topped with fresh blueberries and cream from our iSi can! We (wish we) could eat these every day…
See?! The “you have to try at least one bite” rule works! Don’t give up! This is Finn, declaring, “I’m eating the worst foods in the world and they’re good!” Romaine lettuce and salmon burgers are his kryptonite no more. —> Watch his video testimonial HERE! (He’s pretty adorable.)
Bubba, how do you get this stuff so crunchy?! This granola is insanely awesome. And the savory crunchy mix is something we’ve been missing for a long time. Dang this stuff is good! Our non-Paleo friend Viv recently declared, “I don’t see MAGIC listed in the ingredients – but clearly there MUST BE magic in this bag to make it taste so good!”
Speaking of off-the-charts, look at those tots! We recently tried a new local burger spot, Social Burger – and it’s legit– this is one beef patty and one turkey patty (with bacon jam) on top of a salad, with house-made mustard tarragon dressing. And a side of sweet potato tots for the win!
Congrats to Our Friends
We were honored to write the foreword for this smart, beautiful, game-changing book. There was definitely sqeeeing when we opened it for the first time, and the boys were oohing and ahhing over the pictures and trying to decide what to make first. Since Jenny recommended Pancit, that’s what we made – and it was AWESOME. Next up? Three front-runners: Hawaiian Meatballs, Dutch Baby, or Plantain Pizza. Pre-order now to get the lowest price, book releases this Tuesday!
