Weekly Snaps Diary #8

Monday, 7 March 2016

Not the best start to the week being woken up by an earthquake at 3.30am. The epicenter was quite close to where I live so it was a violent one : ( This one was no help at all, thanks Buddy.

Watching some Fuller House while I eat my lunch! I made a quick quinoa stir-fry with tofu. I needed some energy for work and I knew this would do the trick.

I figured out that the reason I have no energy is because I'm getting ill. I'm filling my meals with chili and ginger to help kick it out of my system. Coffee is my productivity saviour!

Vitamin C packed smoothies are also a must-have for fighting off a cold! Pineapple, kiwifruit, oranges, and frozen raspberries just because I love them.

Night off work = watching Teen Wolf without anyone moaning. Oh how I wanted Theo to be one of the good guys, didn't trust him from the start. Still cute though.

Desperately tried to get through Son of Neptune because I have so many exciting reads sitting on my shelf! I actually liked this one a lot more than I thought I would.

Rocking the pink leather jacket again. I was also blessed with a good hair day too! Hallelujah!

Friday morning and I'm still fighting my cold. It's not enough to stop me, but waking up to a sore throat is never nice. Echinacea drops are the absolute best at stopping colds! Over-dosing on vitamin C isn't a bad idea either. Survival 101 with Steph!

Aaannd the tofu cravings are back. I seriously need the quinoa for extra energy today! It's been one of those kinds of Fridays. I very nearly left my iphone that had dropped out of my bag onto the ground at the park carpark. Thank goodness I had an urge to check Twitter!

Let introduce you to lemon heaven a.k.a lemon protein balls from Lola Berry's cookbook. These honestly taste like lemon meringue pie, yet they're not bad for you! Just a mix of almond meal, lemon juice/zest, protein powder, and a few other ingredients. I'm already addicted...

Kinda obsessed with my new slouchy top! Perfect for a lazy Sunday, until I spilled coffee on it 5 minutes later...

I tried out another Lola Berry recipe and made Paleo Banana and Cranberry bread. It tastes amazing! I thought it might come out a bit dry since one of the main ingredients is almond meal, but it's dense and lovely.

I powered through this book in about three days and I can't wait to share my review of it! It is a serious YA fiction game-changer. It blew my mind!

How was your week everyone? Mine was a little tougher than usual, but still good! Trying out new recipes and finding a new favorite book were the highlights for me. I also had my second boxing lesson and broke in my new gloves. 

What was a highlight from your week?
