Spring 2017 Favorites

Okay, yes, it isn't really spring yet, but I am optimistic it will happen soon. Like by May at least!

Here are some of the things I am enjoying right now...

Lemon Water

I have replaced some of the cold drinks I consume during the day (i.e. coffee frappes, soda stream carbonated water with stevia/flavours, etc.) with lemon water. I absolutely adore it!

The key is to squeeze juice out of the lemon first before dropping it in. Also, the longer it sits, the better it tastes. At the of the day, I eat the lemon slice. Maybe I'm weird, but I love that.

Sweet Potatoes

I have always loved sweet potatoes, but during my pregnancies, my tastes really shifted and those changes lasted a while. I suddenly craved white potatoes and red meat over sweet potatoes and fish. But I have reverted back and now I am all about the sweet potatoes. Combined with all the squash and carrots I eat, its amazing I am not bright orange like Donald Trump (who Little A says looks like a big Cheeto).

I have been eating them whole steamed, tossed with cider vinegar and cinnamon and roasted (as they are in the photo), and as a base for chocolate protein mousse. Really, I love it any way you can prepare it!

Trader Joe's Chili Lime Seasoning

Now that I am back to loving fish again (I'll take it over red meat any day!), I am using this seasoning I got at Trader Joe's in Florida, all the time.

Its got just the right level of spice and salt. I don't add anything else to the fish, just a sprinkle of this stuff and its awesome!

Green P Parking App

If you live in Toronto, you have to have this App! You know I mean it since I am not really an app user. Like this is basically one of the only apps I use period.  You can park and start walking away towards your destination and just plug in the location code. Then choose your duration and it automatically charges your credit card.

Its so amazing when I have a client session run late. Instead of panicking and sprinting to my car, I can just put a few more minutes on my 'meter'.

If you don't live in Toronto, maybe they have something similar where you live.

Ombrelle Weightless Face Lotion

This stuff is the absolute bomb!

I wear sunscreen on my face every day all year. And you should too! I put it on first, before I put on any makeup in the morning.

This stuff has an SPF of 60, but is so light, yet smoothing and moisturizing at the same time. I absolutely love it, I don't think I will ever use another sunscreen on my face!!

Its a cold, gray Monday and I am going on week 3 of having chronic headaches. Its times like these when the simple pleasures matter the most. Enjoy your simple pleasures and have a great day!
