This week I made sure to treat myself and take note of the treats as we’re getting ready to spend time with family — which usually means I forget about me and go all in on family time.
My first treat was to go for a sushi date with hubby! He even let me have two bites of this awesome crispy California roll — avocado, crab, cucumber, tangy mayo, and crispy onions on top! MMMM
I ordered the Sushi Bento box, which came with four different types of rolls: California roll (top left), Philly roll – smoked salmon and cream cheese (top right), Spicy Tuna Roll (bottom left), and Salmon roll (bottom right). It’s hard to pick a favorite, but the Philly was so unexpectedly delicious — that smoked flavor and creamy cheese is BOMB!
The next treat is a new Pop that I wanted to try. I haven’t been drinking any pop at all until I was hit with the urge — I was reminiscing about the last time I had a diet coke (over a month ago!) and it started to sound good! As a former diet coke/diet dr pepper addict, I wanted to something that could hit those same notes, but without the scary artificial sweeteners and chemical additives.
I heard about these Zevia sodas – which are made with natural ingredients and Stevia instead of sugar or artificial sweeteners – from LiveLeanTV’s Jessica Gouthro — her snapchat is one to follow! Such an inspirational fitness couple!
I tried this cola flavor and the cream sold flavor — both are zero calories and super yummy, but cream soda WINS! I can’t even tell that it’s zero calories!!
Lastly, I got my nails done! Mani/pedi time is super important for me — mostly because it’s a non-food reward for a week’s worth of hard runs and training. These colors just screamed summer to me — the nails are a bright orangey pink and the toes are a green/blue that I love!
