I swam home from work today.

The thunderstorms in the Chicago land area this afternoon were c.r.a.z.y. I, of course, drove home during the worse of it. The rain was coming down so hard, I couldn't see the road and the clouds were so eerie...I was expecting to see a tornado right in front of me. But I'm here! and still alive! Tornado weather scares the socks off of me.

Onto some tasty eats...

Today for breakfast I had an old time favorite...a breakfast cookie. Who wouldn't want a cookie for breakfast?? Gina from Fitnessista introduced this to me. Warning: they are addicting.
BIG news! My local farmer's market opened yesterday. I literally have been counting the days till its opening. They had around 8-10 vendors and I picked up green leaf lettuce, strawberries (they melt in your mouth), green onions, snap peas, homemade hummus and minestrone soup for D. They didn't have a huge selection but I'm thinking as the weeks go by, there will be many more veggies for sale. I will faithfully be in line every Thursday with my oneluckyduck tote bag.
Today's lunch was a huge fresh salad with broccoli, green onions, carrots, snap peas, and a splash of Annie's italian dressing.

Sweet kiwis...yes I like to eat the fur too.

My Sun Warrior came today!!! Sadly, the box got a little drenched sitting on my doorstep during the flood today.

Good stats, huh? 16g protein in one scoop. 70 calories. That's kinda insane.

I ripped the bag open as fast as I could and made an apricot, strawberry, banana smoothie. Perfect.

I'm so happy its Friday. My sister and I might get sushi tonight, depending on the weather. I'm thinking about ordering 5 servings of seaweed salad. Not weird, right? Today has turned out pretty good...because 1) my Sun Warrior came and 2) look what I found at my friend's garage sale this morning!!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend. Tomorrow we are going out with our friends for their one year anniversary and we're going to brewery in the city. I see a delicious organic beer in my future...

    Thanks for the sweet comment on my face, I use bare minerals!!! Have u ever used it?!!

  2. I have seen on your blog that you buy the pre-packaged seaweed salad and I'm super jealous because I can't find anywhere that sells it like that!

    Yes I do like bareminerals, right now I'm using something from Benefit that I love...I always go back and forth tho because there are so many products I want to keep trying!

  3. Can I come to the Farmers market next time you go pleeease?! :) That fruit looks so good!
