Weddings and Snacks

I went to my cousins wedding on Saturday.

Well, she’s like my third cousin.

In my family we don’t really discriminate when we speak of 1st, 2nd, or 3rd cousins.

Obviously, I’m closest to my first cousins, but any time is a GREAT time for a party with family.

So, naturally, I hit up the open bar, danced the night away, and raised my glasse(s) one too many times 😉

Side note: I had to buy a brand new pair of heels for this wedding because I danced the heel taps off of my last pair at my cousins wedding last April.

Go hard, or go home.

It was a blast.

This week is going to be extremely busy for me, especially since this is my first week of personal training at my job.

The one thing that is super important to me while I’m on my feet all day is proper nourishment.

Taking breaks between clients is almost impossible, so I need to have food that I can pop in my mouth and go.

But good food.

With lots of “great-for-you” ingredients.

I’ve been on the quinoa train the past couple of days.

Its a great source of carb & protein, with a super nutty taste.

Soooo…I mixed it up w/ some zucchini, Italian seasoning, and lots of other good stuff.

Super healthy, super quick, super tasty.

Plus, I’m pretty sure the house smelled like pizza while they were baking.

Win, win.

P.S. I totally know it’s Cinco de Mayo and I should be sharing a recipe for guacamole and/or margaritas.

Totally unprepared 😉
