Friday Favorites 7/26/2013

Today was super busy all around, minus the morning where I woke up early to make some Friday AM pancakes.  I'm super glad because they were the best part of my day so far!

1. Favorite breakfast food: Pancakes, duh.


I made these peanut butter pancakes topped with peanut butter and fresh strawberries this morning from this @megameows instagram post except using greek yogurt instead of applesauce and peanut butter protein powder. Sorry for the crappy pic-I was so hungry I just snapped and devoured.YUM.

2. Favorite song: Safe and Sound by Capital Cities

I've been loving this song by Capital Cities for a while now but love it even more after checking out a late night set by Capital Cities at Bonnaroo. It's catchy and sweet and will get stuck in your head if you haven't heard it yet. Oh, and the official video is super fun too!

3. Favorite blog read of the week: Checking Yourself Before Wrecking Yourself by Kasey at Powercakes

From her post-love it!

I love Kasey  because she always posts fun fitness tips and recipes along with her real struggles and thoughts!  I'm also partial to her because she has those same full cheeks that I have :) I feel lots of healthy living peeps and fitness junkies need to read this post of hers about learning what YOU need to not fuel your body. News flash- no matter what My Fitness Pal says you do need more than 1200 calories a week to lose weight if you are working out like a madman (or woman!). You need to eat more food if you workout, especially if you workout 6 days a week or two a days or for hours, more crazypants things, etc.  Guess what, I'm training for a marathon-I need more food, carbs, water, and more food. Fuel yourself properly to avoid injury, fatigue, and general crappy feelings.

4. Favorite recipe to try this weekend: Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread from Taylor Made it Paleo

from recipe link!

Last weekend I made some delicious chocolate zucchini muffins from Slim Sanity and since zucchini are enormous and cheap at the farmer's market, I'll probably buy some more! I've been following Taylor on instagram and seeing all her yummy recipes so I can't wait to try this one out!

Have a great weekend! I know the weather is going to continue on here being sub-90 degrees which has turned out to be really pleasant summer weather for me.

Do you have any great plans this weekend? Is there a favorite zucchini-filled recipe you'd like to share with me?


  1. I had peanut butter pancakes topped with peanut butter for breakfast, too. Blueberries on the side. They were by far the highlight of my day!

    1. Sounds delicious as well! I've been eating blueberries by the pint lately!

  2. Chocolate chip zucchini bread - gotta check that out since I'm going to have crazy amounts of zucchini in a few short weeks from my garden.
