So much for the first day of fall bringing cooler weather to the Southern California region. It was another scorcher today. Truth be told, I don’t like doing anything when it’s hot out and that includes eating hot food. I prefer to stick with sandwiches, salads, sushi and smoothies on summer days. For lunch I opted for a strawberry banana smoothie to cool my insides down! Such a simple smoothie but so delicious. In the blender, I combined fresh strawberries and banana’s, vanilla yogurt and a bunch of ice cubes!
purchasing investing in a Vitamix blender. I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews for it and considering the time it takes for my little blender to churn out a smoothie I think it would be worth it because when I want a smoothie I want it right this second.
Definitely a good lunch choice!
This evenings post was inspired by Claire who posted about her fall bucket list! I just did a bucket list for life in general but I have some cute-sy ideas for a fall inspired one and like I said, I like making lists and I like crossing things off that list so why not make a fall inspired bucket list! Time to round up the troops and go apple picking! I don’t even know if we have apple farms in Southern California but I’m about to find out! I did make it to the gym this afternoon but kept it light and only did 20 minutes on the elliptical followed by a 15 minute quick ab workout brought to me by the Nike training app! I’m suppose to run three miles tomorrow as part of my training plan and hopefully I’ll be feeling well enough to run. Well, I’m off to watch friends and eat spaghetti with my roomie, see ya in the morning!
Do you have any fall related “bucket list” things?!
