Happy Friday, guys! Hope you have some fun planned over the next couple of days. Before we get this weekend started, here are some of my favorites from the week:
- Apple slices dipped in peanut butter: If the “Apple a day…” motto holds any truth, I won’t be seeing a doctor any time soon. This has been my go-to snack over the past week and I can’t see that changing any time soon! Despite fancy snack concoctions & various energy bars on the market, there’s something about this simple combo that just cannot be beat. Actually I lie- bananas with peanut butter are right up there too !
- Cinema trips: I played catch-up at the cinema last weekend & saw Zero Dark 30 and Silver Linings Playbook. Although I didn’t love ZD30, I thought the plot of Silver Linings was excellent…and between Jennifer Lawrence & Bradley Cooper, all that eye candy didn’t hurt either! On a completely different note, I think this might be the first time that I’ve ever seen 3 of the Oscar nominees….could it be a sign that my taste in movies has matured into appreciating more than just chick flicks ?
- Coconut water: Although India still needs to get with the program where “health foods” like kombucha, almond milk and Greek yogurt are concerned, we are one step ahead of the game with coconut water a.k.a. naryal pani. It’s my current drink of choice after workouts and while it may not rack in the protein, those electrolytes count for something…and plus it’s so refreshing! And just for the record- drinking it straight out of the coconut sure beats those Vita Coco Tetra Packs!
- Swimming: I went for a swim a few days ago for the first time in MONTHS! While rocking a swimming cap is hardly attractive and time for washing/blow drying post-swim needs to be allocated, it’s worth that extra bit of effort. Especially as I always feel so relaxed afterwards, I want to try and incorporate it into my workout routine more. I’ll just have to schedule swims around my hair-washing schedule…and don’t act like you don’t have one too !
What’s one of your favorites from the week?
