Thank Goodness it’s Friday!
I started this shout outs segment because it gives me an outlet to place all of my recommendations and resources. People ask me all the time what i read, listen to, go to for references and buy so why not let the world know here? I would love to hear from you and find out what your favorite blogs, podcasts, products, etc. are because I know that I miss ALL the things (especially when my phone is 100% out of commission, yes it said it’s goodbye to me yesterday).
What I’m digging…
This online resource has recipes to new products to ways to cook almost any thing you can think of. It also has a lot of pictures, tutorials and step by step instructions to make cooking super simple. The latest news story on there that has me intrigue? Coffee flour! Say what? This website is a wealth of knowledge and I find myself on there at least once a day.
@thegoodquote on Instagram
I am a sucker for a good quote and this account gives me inspiration and motivation daily. Check them out if you are looking for a good quote of the day.
Entrepreneur on Fire with John Lee Dumas
This is hands down one of my favorite podcasts, its short, sweet and to the point. John interviews leading entrrepreneurs and asks them meaningful questions on how they got to where they are today and asks for advice and information that budding entrepreneurs can use in their own life and business. I’ve learned so much and cannot wait to see where he takes this 7 day a week podcast.
What I’m eating…
So we all know I love food, check out what summer treats I have been digging lately. I have been LOVING my weekly bag of veggies from Field Goods but every now and then Sassy wants a #sassyapproved snack 🙂
Chocolate Coconut Butter Cups aka deliciousness. If you follow me on the instagram you saw I had these as a tasty treat the other night #becausechocolate. I am all for having a treat every now and then because after all we are humans but if I am going to splurge it better be on something TOTALLY worth it. We’ve all heard the benefits of DARK chocolate and in moderation I like to indulge in those benefits. These coconut butter cups were actually my wedding favor because I love them that much. The ingredients you ask? Organic Coconut, Organic Cacao, Organic Cacao Butter, Organic Maple Sugar, Himalayan Sea Salt, Madagascar Vanilla, all #sassyapproved :). Grab these on their website or on Thrive Market and treat your tastebuds to the deliciousness.
Chameleon Cold Brew
This is a cold brewed coffee that is literally magical. It is the smoothest tasting coffee I have EVER had and does not give me the jitters like many other caffeinated coffees do. I find the concentrate at MOM’s Organic Market when I visit my parents in Maryland and make sure I stock up so I can make my delicious (iced) Vanilla Lattes with stainless steel straws of course.
Wait Sassy is talking alcohol? Check out our podcast on alcohol to learn all about our thoughts on alcohol. Yes, once in awhile even a dietitian will splurge and enjoy a drink. This new drink is so light, refreshing and only have 5 grams of sugar per drink! That is absolutely AMAZING. There are no funky ingredients either and compared to some fruity, sugary frankenfood of a drink (like Mike’s Hard Lemonade that has 32 grams of sugar) it has FAR fewer grams of sugar per drink.
What I’m wearing…
So not food related but I spend a lot of my days in gym clothes and I like to be comfortable (and unstinkable). If you are looking for comfort and cute, these are for you 🙂
These are comfortable to wear either on their own or under a pair of shorts. They stretch with you as you move doing squats, deadlifts, etc. and are cool in the summer, because let me tell you this humidity is almost unbearable. As a former swimmer I prefer to have workout clothes fit like a swimsuit, but that might just be me! I secretly wish they had a more muscular girl sporting them in the photo because I love the look of muscles on ALL human beings.
One of my best friends JC gave me crocs our first swim season together at Cornell. They are BRIGHT pink to match her BRIGHT yellow. Call me crazy but they are literally the comfiest shoe I have ever owned. I just snagged up another pair of sandals for 25% off on the Crocs website here! I prefer to be barefoot the majority of the day but when I go out I want to be in a comfy shoe, heels and me do not get along!
My friends recently got back from a trip to the West Coast and stopped in Powell’s Book store in Portland, OR (one of the coolest bookstores EVER) and they came across these bright pink socks that said “SASSY” on them. I am convinced that someone made them for me but who am I kidding there are many of us sassy gals out there. I am just lucky the brought me back a pair and it’s by far my favorite pair of socks right now #sassyapproved for sure.
Let me know in the comments WHO, WHAT, WHERE and WHEN you want to give a shout out to this week!
Have a great Friday and an even better weekend!
