Even though the temperature didn't reflect it....today was officially the first day of Spring! So that is exciting. After finally adjusting to the time change and enjoying the warmth and extra sunlight this week, and having my shin splints return (grrr)...I was grateful for a gloomy and cold weekend to rest. And of course spend time with my favorite puppies. They love the cuddly weather. And I am not going to lie...I have turned total psycho-obsessed dog mom and have been meal-prepping for them too. Yikes. But, in my defense, it makes sense because when I do crock-pot chicken, rice and steamed carrots for myself....I just make extra for them. So two birds, one stone. And they love it. And it is super nutritious. No fillers. So while cooking for dogs being one of the cool things I did this weekend (not), I also made stationary (not cool either), to thank all of my amazing clients (that part is cool). NaturallyNati's ONE year anniversary is just around the corner....and I am feeling so overwhelmed with gratitude for all of my freaking awesome clients. I would have NEVER guessed that starting this business would have been so much fun, and that I would have met such wonderful people who I get to meet with and talk to on a regular basis, and honestly call my friends. Seriously....I can't even put it into words. End mushy story.
Other breaking news.....Spring Break is next week and I am headed South....for (hopefully) warmer weather. So tonight, I started operation use all food from refrigerator. I had some spinach that I needed to use and found some pesto that I totally forgot about and came up with a nutritious and protein-filled grain dish. Check it below! I added chicken to the mix....but it would be good as a side dish or with another protein. Shrimp would be super yummy!
Hope you all have a great start to the week!
I AM A 30-SOMETHING, FOOD-LOVING, FITNESS-OBSESSED, DIY-ING, WORK-A-HOLIC, DOGGY-MOMMY AND WIFEY.....THAT DECIDED TO SHARE MY LIFE WITH YOU. WELCOME AND ENJOY!
