This Week’s Eats, Workouts, & Little Happenings πŸ§˜πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Morning & Happy Monday!

I don’t know what has gotten into me, but I’ve been on cloud nine lately. Is it weird to feel like this for no reason? Maybe, maybe not, but I’m going with it. It could be that we got a snow storm and 67-degree weather in the same week. Gotta love the south. I just got back from a three-mile dog walk, and now I’m ready to blog about my week! I look forward to sharing some eats, workouts, and our dog-training updates.Β 
One meal I have been obsessed with for the past couple of months has been my protein bowls. I’ve had it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I mix my unsweetened coconut milk yogurt with plant-based protein powder (Orgain), and then top it with toasted pumpkin seeds, banana, unsweetened coconut, and agave on top!
After finishing up all of my Monday work, I headed out to my parent’s house around five. It was barely 20-degrees all week, so I wanted to bring the boys out to run around and play. I also hadn’t seen my parents in like a week. My mom and Dad love the Bachelor, so I wanted to watch it with them.

I packed some food for dinner/dessert/and breakfast.

I made a dinner salad with arugula, blueberries, rice, cucumber, unsalted & roasted sunflower seeds, and hard-boiled eggs. I also packed carrots, hummus, tea & lemons (first thing in the morning & after dinner), a No Cow Bar (morning with coffee), dark chocolate (pieces for dessert) grapes, and a waffle. I like waffles before dog walks!Β 
I love having giant salads for dinner. Oh, you already knew that?Β 
The dogs appreciated being out in the backyard playing. It was 50-degrees! πŸ™‚Β 
It wasn’t going to stay nice for long.

I had my morning tea outside while the dogs played. I loved hearing the birds chirp and sing. My tea had ginger powder, lemon/ginger tea, and a freshly squeezed lemon.Β 
For breakfast, I had a bowl of oatmeal with pears, banana, cinnamon, and a scoop of peanut butter. After breakfast, I headed off to the gym to do my 45-minute treadmill workout. I ran five minutes and walked five minutes for 45 minutes. I ran at an 11-minute paceΒ and walked at a 17-minute pace.
I was so happy to see a big package sitting on my front porch when I got home from the gym. One of my favorite companies sent me some goodies! Every time I’m at Earthfare or Wholefoods, I pick up the Free2b sunflower cups. They are amazing. I tried their snack break chocolate barks, and I was blown away! Incredible!!! They are vegan, gluten free, dairy free, nut free, and freaking amazing. The dark peppermint chocolate tasted like Girlscout Thin Mint cookies. I like to keep these goodies in my freezer for an after dinner dessert. I just ordered a big bag of their vegan chocolate chips to make cookies and brownies on my blog for ValentinesΒ Day. They have free shipping (when it’s not hot out) which is awesome. (Free 2b Foods) *not sponsored*
For dinner on Tuesday night, I had my leftover chicken from the Fajitas I made last Sunday night.Β 
Waking up to snow on Wednesday was amazing! (Check out all of my snow day pictures on this blog post) The dogs were in heaven. I had so much fun spending time outside with them and exploring in the snow. For breakfast, I had a waffle (not pictured), my tea (the go-to + raspberry hibiscus) and eggs Β (3 egg whites + 1 yolk.)
Later on, my mom and I hung out on the couch and watched a movie! I snacked on popcorn and trail mix while editing snow day photos for my blog post. It was great that she had the day off! Most of the Carolinas shut down on Wednesday and Thursday because of the snow.Β 
For dinner on Wednesday night, I made spaghetti squash pasta! I added roasted bell peppers and ground turkey to garlic pasta sauce. It was so good. I have been on a spaghetti squash kick lately. I go through phases.Β 
On Thursday morning after I finished up a blog post, my mom asked if I would cut her hair. I have been cutting her hair (not always) since I was in middle school. She just wanted five inches cut off, so I knew I could confidently do it. I think I did OK for not being a professional πŸ™‚
For lunch, I had the last of my fajita chicken, arugula with Tessemae’s Green Goddess dressing, and spaghetti squash on top. I spent Thursday night working on more blogs, and hanging out with the dogs πŸ˜‰
I had a package arrive on Friday morning, and I was so excited! You guys know I use Swerve in basically ALL of my sweet recipes. This stuff is THE BEST! When I was in Hawaii, Shaughna recommended it. I have been hooked ever since! They sent me a package of their product, so that means more recipes to come!Β 
I picked up this new warmer at Target on Friday. I wanted a warm light next to my fireplace, and I’m obsessed with wax warmers! The gold light is so warm and cozy. It was only $9.99! I ordered more online for the upstair’s bathrooms. I have been switching over to all soy candles, and soy wax melts lately because they are non-toxic and healthier for you. The Burt’s Bees candles and warmers are my favorites! The smell reminds me of a therapeutic spa. My favorite scents are the lavender fields, lemon honey, and eucalyptus mint. I also have the eucalyptus mint candle, and it’s amazing! I feel like it’s a mood-lifting candle.Β 
For being a little light, it sure has a lot of glow power.Β 
Friday breakfast:
4 egg-whites and one yolk. I wanted a light breakfast before going to yoga.Β 
I wasn’t in the mood to cook on Friday night, so Kyle and I had chicken potstickers and pizza. I had Daiya pizza, and he had a DIY flat out pizza.
Β These Feel Good Foods chicken potstickers were out of this world!!! They were also gluten free and dairy free. I bought them at Earthfare. I’m excited to try their veggie rolls.Β 
Kyle and I headed to the gym on Saturday afternoon.

I like to write out my workouts before going to the gym. Otherwise, I find myself wandering around like a lost puppy. I have to make a plan! I started out on the treadmill and then headed to the fitness room to do the strength training portion. This is also a workout you can do at home!Β 
Post-gym lunch! I made some of my hot tea and then mixed protein powder with my coconut milk yogurt. Told you I was hooked. It tastes like pudding!
I royally messed up on Saturday afternoon. Kyle and I were headed to the movies to go see Wonder, but I made a mistake. I got the wrong theater πŸ™ Whoooooops. We realized it when we were standing in line and didn’t see our movie on the board. We decided to make a trip to pick up his suit at the tailor, and then head back and walk the dogs.Β 
For dinner on Saturday night, I cooked up some apple chicken sausages with spaghetti squash and kale. I had no idea how delicious apple chicken sausages were! We used the Bilinski brand.Β 
I topped arugula (tossed in Tessemae’s Green Goddess dressing) with carrots and hummus, and the spaghetti squash and apple chicken sausage. We decided to watch 47 Meters Down, and it was AWFUL! I mean, not many shark movies are that great, but it ended too soon, and it was just bad! I’m all for shark movies, but not this one. I still recommend watching it lol. It’s not on a Sharknado level.
I was up at 5:30 am on Sunday morning to have coffee and walk the dogs before heading to dog training! This was my “it’s freezing and too early face.”
These boys have been doing so well!
I thought this photo of Grumples was so funny! He was on the couch listening to John, our trainer, talk about what we were going to do during our session.
We worked a lot on their sit & stay with distractions. I think this is going to be incredible once we get this down. If they can sit and stay with distractions, we’ll be able to eliminate their reactions to people or other dogs. They did well but also had some hiccups when we brought other dogs and people into the mix. Grumples did well heeling with me and walking past a giant Doberman. After doing some exercises, we came to the conclusion that it may not be the dog that Grumples is getting mad at. It may be the person. It was pretty eye-opening. This week, we are going to work hard on their heels and sit/stays (with distractions.) If you are interested in learning more about the training we are doing with our dogs, check out Holland K9 Services! We look forward to our Sunday sessions, and it’s only been three weeks, but we’ve learned so much, and I look forward to seeing our dogs (and ourselves) change!Β 
We got bored waiting in the car for Kyle, so dog selfie. Grumples was more interested in the squirrels.
We headed to the gym at one! I did a fun workout and loved the sprint work! I am going to do this again but for thirty minutes.Β 
Post-gym lunch:
Eggs (4 egg whites +1 yolk) carrots & hummus, and strawberries!Β 
Kyle was excited to watch the Eagles play last night. He’s an Eagles fan! I made his favorite, chicken enchiladas! He asks for these literally once a month! They are so easy to make and perfect for freezing. I keep the leftovers in the freezer, and he heats them back up in the oven when he wants them.

  1. I diced and cooked up two pounds of skinless & boneless chicken breast with one tablespoon of olive oil
  2. In a separate pan, saute two chopped bell peppers and one medium chopped sweet yellow onion with one tablespoon of olive oil.
  3. Once the chicken is cooked, and the veggies are sauteed, add the veggies to the pan with the chicken on low heat. Add one teaspoon of sea salt, half tablespoon of minced onion, one teaspoon black pepper, half tablespoon of garlic powder, and half tablespoon of onion powder.
  4. Mix in three tablespoons cream cheese, a fourth cup red enchilada sauce, six ounces of chopped green chilis, and three tablespoons of cheese.
  5. Fill the flour tortillas (we used Carbsmart) with a cup of the chicken filling.
  6. Top the filled tortillas with one cup of cheese.
  7. Drizzle one cup of red enchilada sauce on top.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees.

If you want to make a low-carb version, try my enchilada stuffed bell pepper recipe!
I was not in the mood for anything savory. I decided to have a protein bowl topped with strawberries and pumpkin seeds Β  for dinner instead.
I ended the night with a cup of teaΒ and dark chocolate! I’ve been lovingΒ Lily’s 70% Dark Chocolate sea salt! It’s vegan, too! Just in case anyone is looking for a good vegan chocolate, this one is it! I also like ending the night with the Yogi Chai Rooibos! It’s really mild and calming πŸ™‚

Questions for you!

  1. This is fun one! Kyle and I are going to do a Q&A Valentine’s relationship post. What questions do you want to ask us about relationships! We’ll add it to the Q&A! They can be for him, me, or the both of us!
  2. What is one food you’ve been eating on repeat lately?
  3. Are you watching The Bachelor?

    My fav mix right now is quinoa, peppers and onions in taco seasoning, chic peas and black beans, topped with plain Greek yogurt, Mexican cheese & avocado. πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ my fav vegetarian lunch.

    I don’t watch the bachelor. But my
    Mom does every week!

    Ps I think you should get some backyard chickens with all the eggs you eat! They’re such easy animals to take care of. And it’s so amazing going to get eggs in the morning.

    You’ve just discovered apple chicken sausage? Oh my, that is a staple in my house. They are so versatile – enjoy.
    That picture of Grumples had me cracking up! I’m sure he understood every word, hahaha!

    Great job cutting your mom’s hair. Your talents are endless πŸ™‚ Speaking of hair, yours is getting so long. It/you look so pretty in car selfie with Grumples.

    Questions for you and Kyle: How/where did you meet? Do you have pet names for each other?

    Eggs. Always eggs.

    I don’t like Arie so I’m not watching this season. I just can’t stomach him.

  • Krista

    Oh man, those pot stickers look good!! One food I’m starting to really get obsessed with, particularly this week, is banana “nice cream.” Last week, I bought a couple of bunches of bananas to freeze for this week, because we found frozen acai at Trader Joe’s, and I’d never tried it, so we figured we’d give it a shot. It’s just been so incredibly creamy every time I’ve made it these last few days (adding protein powder and toppings!), I don’t even know what I was doing before not making it. πŸ˜‰

    I guess in terms of questions, I’d ask: what’s each of your love languages? My fiance and I went through pre cana back in November, and there was a whole section on the five love languages. It was a fun session, and we found out that we both have the same one, so that probably explains a lot, lol. Also: what’s your favorite place to go to together, whether it’s another city, a restaurant, or wherever?

    Reply to Krista
    • Taralynn McNitt

      Hi, Krista!

      OMG those potstickers were AMAZING!!!! I love love love love love frozen bananas as a treat! I add maple syrup and walnuts sometimes.

      That’s a really good idea! I’ll add that in there!! (thanks for the questions)

  • Kelsey Weissner

    Hi Taralynn! I hope you’re having a great week so far πŸ™‚ I have some questions off the top of my head– I was actually wondering how you two met?! And what is your favorite way to spend time together?

    As for my food on repeat, it’s been broccoli! I swear up and down that if I eat 2+ cups of broccoli a day, it puts me in a really good mood for (seemingly) no reason! I came across an article that said broccoli can have that effect and overall improves your mood which is so awesome lol, so I keep steaming ’em up!

    I don’t watch The Bachelor and the only season I did watch was the last one with Nick. I was so mad he picked the girl he did and they’ve already broken up! I tried watching this season, but the guy is kind of creepy to me haha!

    BTW–I’m taking my boyfriend to NYC for the first time this weekend! Any advice on some delicious foodie spots?

    xo Kelsey

      Hi, Kelsey!!

      Those are great questions and I’ll definitely add them to the post!

      I go in and out of broccoli craves, too!!

      Ugh, I COULD NOT STAND NICK!!! hahaha I just want him to go away. But this guy stinks even more!!! He’s creepy.

      Yikes! I’m not the best NYC genius!! Have you ever read LOVETAZA? She’s a blogger that lives in NYC and I think she has some AWESOME spots!! Check out her blog!!

    1. How do you let go of the petty things that irritate you? (If Kyle chews super loudly and it grates on your nerves, if you always find excuses to avoid picking up dog poop and it frustrates him, etc.) I feel like everyone lets little things get to them in relationships sometimes and I’m always curious how other couples work around it when your significant other pushes your buttons. πŸ™‚
    2. Salads from a bag. I’m not super creative with salads, so I like buying those bagged chopped salads that come with packets of dressing and toppings, and then adding in extras that go well with it to give it more substance.
    3. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever seen a full episode of the bachelor!

    You should come up with a recipe for potstickers!!!

    Reply to Valerie
    • Taralynn McNitt

      Hi, Valerie!

      Those are some good questions! And your examples made me laugh! (You’d be surprised by my answer for this because we’ve definitely talked about this subject.) The weird thing is that we fight to pick up the dog poop. We are a weird couple πŸ˜‰ I think this is a great question.

      BAG SALADS ARE THE BEST! I sometimes take them on road trips and slice the top and shake the dressing.

      dont start now!!!!

      Lol that would be hard, but a good idea!

      Reply to Taralynn McNitt
      • Valerie

        That’s funny! I was totally just trying to think of random examples lol. I’m interested to hear if it makes it into your Valentine’s Q&A blog so I can hear more!! πŸ™‚

        I couldn’t stop thinking about potstickers after this post, so my boyfriend and I made our own recipe last night! The turned out SUPER GOOD. I’d love to share the recipe with you!

    Another awesome post! Do you have any recommendations on a good trail mix? I’m trying to be a little wiser with my snack decisions. I’m a big snacker and I want healthier, easier options while at work or on the go with the little one.

    Thanks πŸ™‚

    Reply to Kelly
    • Taralynn McNitt

      Thanks, Kelly!!

      I think making your own trail mix will save you money and allow you to make it extremely healthy! The one I had was from my parent’s house and it wasn’t the healthiest. Dry out your own fruits, use unsated/roasted almonds/cashews/walnuts, chopped dates, and some fun goodies! ALways make your own πŸ˜€

    It’s great to know the training works well for the pups! (we had dogs when I was younger : the problem is ALWAYS people, not the dogs)

    1. I’d love to know how you and Kyle met, and who made the first move (I’m definitely a hopeless romantic πŸ˜€ )

    2. I’m trying to eat more fruits, so bananas are my go-to snack, dessert, breakfast…

    3. I watched the first episode, but it’s not my favorite show. I prefer America’s Next Top Model!

      Yes so true!!!

      Hahahaha πŸ™‚ I will definitely tell the story. It’s kind of a cute one πŸ˜€

    First, I just want to say I absolutely LOVE your blog! I’ve been following along for a while and I seriously feel like we would be best friends!

    I’m in my last semester at the University of Iowa, so I’ve been making big meals to put in tupperware for later! I have one huge container full of 3 bean chili, a lot of homemade hummus, vegetable soup, and chopped up produce ready to go when I’m in a rush. I have been reaching for tea constantly! With the cold weather I’m always wanting to drink something hot, but I don’t respond well to too much coffee, so chamomile or jasmine teas have been my go to!

    Reply to Amber

    Also, I never got around to commenting on your running post, but I’m in a similar place as you. I trained for a half marathon a while back and basically haven’t run much since. I didn’t get injured, but I didn’t include cross training, yoga, etc. It ended up being miserably painful and I hated it. Now I’m trying to ease my way back into running and would love to hear more of your running updates!

    I LOVE Free2Be stuff! Peanut butter and chocolate is so dangerous to me though, so I have to only buy it when I’m willing to eat it ALL haha. Also, I’m SUPER impressed by your mom’s hair! That’s amazing because it’s so thick! Nice work!

    Hmmmm some questions for you and Kyle: what’s your dream vacation together! And who does the most cooking in your relationship? What your favorite thing about the other person?

    I’ve been loving our homemade granola with Forager’s cashew yogurt, and also just eggs with peppers and vegan bacon!

    I’ve never gotten into the Bachelor. Too busy always binge watching the Food Network haha.

    Nothing wrong with being on Cloud 9!!

    1. How do you deal with people asking you “When are you guys getting married??” My boyfriend and I have been dating for 3 years now (I am 22 and he is 24) and it is all people ask us anymore. I’m just like “ummmmmmm…..?” Haha! I would love to know any advice you and Kyle have on this one!

    2. I have been eating salads non-stop…I think because I read your blog all the time! πŸ™‚ I love using Tessemae’s avocado ranch with tuna, sauerkraut, carrots, romaine, and spinach.

    3. I started out watching it but lost track when school started back up again (ew.) I am looking forward to catching up on it this weekend!

      Lol not at all! πŸ˜€

      Hahahaha you know…no one ever asks us that! At least I don’t get asked that. There are always speculation questions on my blog, but I just brush it off. Since you are 22, I’d definitely just tell people that you’re still young, and have all the time in the world! I know this may sound strange, but when I was 22, I got out of a 3 1/2 year relationship. You really change between the ages of 22-27! Take your time, Anastasia!!!

      Hhahahaha salads are just the best!!:D:D I’ll have to try out the ranch from Tessemae!!

      Yes, catch up and let me know what you think!!

    Hey, Taralynn! I have been a huge fan of your blog , my question for you and Kyle both is how did you guys meet? I’m not a fan of this Bachelor, I enjoyed Rachel’s a little more and have you had Shepherd’s Pie? Best dish to have in the winter! Hope all is well!

    I’ve been doing the darn Whole 30 program this month, and it’s so tricky for me because I’m a vegetarian! So the only Protein I’m really able to have is eggs…which has been my repeat. Eggs, and regular/ sweet potatoes. I’m glad I’m doing the Whole 30, but man, I can’t wait to re introduce dairy and some carbs so I can change it up! Haha. Glad you had a good week!!! πŸ™‚

    Do you guys talk about all of your past relationships or leave it in the past?

      Hi, Kayla! I probably won’t add this question to the post because I want it to be light and fun! I’ll just answer this here!

      When we first got into a relationship, we definitely had those conversations! It’s important to talk about how we go to where we are, what relationships shaped us, and so on! Once that stuff was out there, it never had to get brought up again! I love to live in the relationship that I’m in and put the past in the past. πŸ™‚

    I love the idea of adding bell peppers and ground turkey with spaghetti squash. So simple but so tasty! And I also can’t wait to try the enchilada stuffed bell peppers recipe – yum!!

    1. What is your favorite thing about each other and/or about your relationship?
    2. I’ve been making tons of simple Mexican bowls for lunches lately with shredded chicken, black beans, brown rice, bell pepper, onion, salsa, avocado and a sprinkle of cheese. They’re easy to prep ahead of time and then just heat and eat!
    3. Never seen the Bachelor – sometimes I think I’m missing out because so many of my friends watch! πŸ™‚

      It adds so much more to the sauce and makes it last longer! πŸ˜€ I’m all about quantity when it comes to veggies! You can pretty much stuff peppers with anything!!!

      (adding to the list)

      Ahhhhhhhh now I need to do the same!!!!

      lol don’t even get started on it!!! it’s so horrible, yet so addicting.

    Is it strange that I stalk your blog every hour on Monday mornings waiting for your blogs? I always look forward to them, Taralynn!

    I have been watching Bachelor but do not like Arie either.

    I have been eating crabcakes on repeat!

    I’ve been on a huge spaghetti kick lately too! We keep having it on Sundays, so I’ve started naming our Sunday dinners “Spaghetti Sunday”! πŸ™‚

    One snack I’ve bene having on repeat lately is definitely those little halo oranges! They’re SO good and taste just like candy!

    I watched the first episode of the Bachelor but then haven’t kept up with it since! For some reason, I’m just not a fan of this season!

    Happy Monday Taralynn!

      Happy Monday, Chelsea!

      Lol, I love it! Spaghetti Sundays reminds me of serving spaghetti dinners at church when I was a kid.

      MMMM those halo oranges are dangerous for me. Love them!

      Ugh, I do not like Arie, but the drama is so good (I know it’s fake) lol

    I’ve been eating Salmon on repeat for a few days! Salmon belly is the best, especially with coconut milk.

    I’m not watching the bachelor but I’ve been watching Drop Dead Diva. Have you heard of it?

    I’ve been eating fish and okra on REPEAT the past few months. I am okay with eating the same thing day after day… it’s so fresh and delicious! ❀️❀️
