Reading numerous blogs each day can cause one to be envious of others. I’m sure it happens to many of us. Kailey over at Snack-Face wrote a post regarding this same topic just the other day. I am not going to go into great depth as to whose lives I find to be close to perfect because I know their “perfect worlds” are a mere fallacy made up in my mind and the grass is not always greener on the other side. However, I will tell you that I do envy the foods and the activities that other bloggers eat and do in their day to day lives.
Some of those include, but are not limited to:
~Adding chia seeds to my yogurt or oatmeal. I have yet to do that because I can’t find those things anywhere. Maybe I should just go buy a ch-ch-chia (pet).
~Taking an exercise class like zumba or yoga or body pump. I am just too darn intimidated and I’ve never been a dancer or coordinated in that manner. Any advice for a novice who is interested in adding some variety to her workout routine?
On the other hand, there are some things I have mimicked or tried after seeing it on other blogs like…
this morning I made my breakfast smile.
I’m telling you I literally smiled back at my plate. I felt like Tom Hanks with Wilson, the volleyball, there for a minute.
And I had some hot Nutcracker Sweet Tea Holiday Edition with a splash of milk.
For lunch I added some broccoli slaw to my wrap for some crunch; it was such a nice addition.
So yeah, I saw the slaw and the muenster cheese on a blog and had to have them. I added them to my whole wheat wrap along with turkey, mustard, spinach, and sliced roma. I added a wacked looking nectarine for some sweetness.
And dinner included another item I saw on a blog, Vodka sauce. I browned some lean ground beef and added the sauce to heat through. Spaghetti and fresh baby spinach was topped with the meat sauce.
Tonight was a first time having Vodka sauce and it was a nice twist on the usual tomato basil sauce.
Finally, I ended the night with another blogger-induced craving–apple crisp. The crisp was made from sliced apples and granola along with some flavorings and sweeteners, but I didn’t love it so won’t be sharing a recipe.
Do you find yourself envious of other bloggers?
