Healthiness

Happy Hump Day Hunnies!

If you didn’t already know, I am someone who is very passionate about health and fitness.  Does that passion sometimes get beat out by my love for Italian (or any delicious) food and my desire to sit on the couch and watch movies all day with Brandon? Abso-fricken-lutely.  But I am human and I believe that balance is the key to a happy and healthy lifestyle.  I would like to share with you all some of the food, recipes, exercises, or whatever that I have been currently loving in hopes that it will help you live healthier lives or inspire you in some way.  So, without further adieux, here are some pics and info about some healthy (or lack there of) choices I’ve been making lately.

Something Brandon and I love is sushi (and beer) so once I turned 21, we went out for Sushi and it was so awesome to be able to order a drink at a restaurant.  But of course we went with the light Sapporo’s.  Better for you, without jeopardizing the flavor when you want a cold brew.

Obviously, this is a ‘not so healthy’ choice, but it is okay to splurge and get what you want from time to time.  And frozen yogurt with cookie dough bites, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and sprinkles is what I wanted.  And, let me tell you, those calories were worth every bite. 🙂

My view while I was drinking a protein shake and stretching on the lawn.  Brandon was wet sanding the trunk of his car.  Do not ask me why he does this; he’s rebuilding his ’69 mustang and does A LOT of things I don’t understand when it comes to this car.  But I get to spend time with him and be outside in the beautiful weather at the same time, so it’s a win win.

This is one of my favorite healthy meals ever.  Spaghetti squash with light alfredo sauce and parmesan.  Mmmm, so delicious and when you put the sauce on it, it actually tastes like spaghetti.  Which is big for me because pasta is my favorite meal and I could eat it every single day.  But then I would be a million pounds and I don’t want that. You cut the spaghetti squash in half (length wise) and then bake at 375 degrees for about 50 minutes to an hour.  Then you take a fork and shave all the squash out and enjoy!

Coconut water is one of my all time favorite things to drink. It just tastes so good and has so many benefits.  Coconut water is also a perfect hydrator at the beach (and when recovering from the hangover from all the wine that we drank the night before).  Red wine is definitely an indulgence of mine but remember, for every drink you have, drink one glass of water.  Hydration is the key to beating a hangover people.

All summer Brandon and I made these yummy teriyaki skewers.  We did steak, shrimp and veggies.  We cut everything up and marinated it for about thirty minutes in teriyaki sauce (minus the veggies), then put them on skewers (be sure to soak your skewers in water for about 20 minutes before hand, so they don’t catch on fire) and then B would BBQ them.  So easy, yet such a delicious and healthy meal. And it doesn’t hurt when I have such a hottie grilling for me either. 🙂
