Friday Favorites – 11.20

Did yesterday feel like Friday to anyone? I’m struggling with that fact that today is not Saturday but hey, at least it’s not Tuesday. Time to share what I have been loving this week. You might notice that everything this week is food related. Alternate title for this post – Impulse Buys at Whole Foods.

Friday Favorites

With out further ado, here are my Friday Favorites for this week!

  • Carmel Sea Salt Macaroons

I’ve talked about Hail Merry Macaroons on the blog before but during my latest trip to Whole Foods I found and tried this flavor. They are amazing. It took all of my will power to not eat the whole bag on the short drive home. These little nuggets of love are perfectly sweet and salty as well as vegan, gluten-free and non GMO. All of this is great but the best part is that SL doesn’t like coconut so I don’t have to share a single one!

  • Mint Chocolate Coconut Milk

Keeping on the vegan, gluten-free and non GMO train here folks. This was a complete impulse buy at Whole Foods…like legit had already put all my stuff on the register when I stopped this and had to have it. I’m so glad I did! Its gone in my coffee and my Shakeology breakfast shakes all week.

  • BluePrint Green Juice

Item #3 on the Whole Foods Impulse Buy list. Someday, I want to do a juice cleanse but I’m not ready to commit just yet. Until then, I will drink delicious green juices like this kale, apple, ginger, romaine, spinach, cucumber, celery, parsley and lemon juice. I also bought the lemon, cayenne, agave juice but haven’t tried it yet.

  • Being the #GiftofHydration winner!


I won something, yay! Sarah Fit posted an amazing giveaway on her blog last week gifting Essentia water and Health Warrior Chia Bars and I won for my office! On Wednesday two cases of water and two boxes or bars were delivered to me at work and they are all gone by Thursday morning. Everyone loved them! The Chia Bars were Mango and Chocolate Peanut Butter and both were amazing. I can’t wait to try the other flavors.

And on that note, its time to buckle down, get through work and start the weekend!
