HEY friends, and Happy Friday/Weekend!! Had a good Friday?


It’s Friday Faves time!! Open-mouthed smile


1. Special Friday Breakfast! Katie’s (Chocolate) Banana Bread in a Bowl!DSC00389

I looove it!! I used Ultra-Bran cereal and added cocoa powder, and topped with crunchy sunflower seed butter. Can’t beat that on a Friday morning!!


2. Friday Sweat!! Spin with my FAVE spin teacher was AWESOME!


LOVED every second, even though I was the gimp who couldn’t do any of the standing stuff! Smile with tongue out It is really paying off though!! I haven’t done ANYTHING that might put stress on my shin, and today I was down to a 1/10 on the pain!! YESSS!! Anyway, I also did 15 mins of upper body weights before, and as soon as I left the spin room, I saw Friends was on TV, so obviously I glued my butt to a bike until it finished!


It will NEVER get old. Ever.


3. Recovery smoothies!DSC00409

My usual tropical one, topped with muesli and PB&Co Crunch Time. Tofu in smoothies is just amazing trust me, and makes them so much higher in protein! Tofu love Smile


4. The SUN!! It was out today in London, and it was actually quite hot!!! So I took Buddy out on a nice long walk in a country park.



Hello runner’s feet. I need a pedicure and BADLY, but I don’t want to put any poor beautician through that torture! Smile with tongue out


5. Hummus Obsession. Spicy Sabra hummus to be precise. My lunch involved half a tub of it:DSC00401

Roasted courgette/zucchini, sweet tater with hummus, and a hummus+nooch stuffed mushroom. I may have gone back to top the veggies with hummus…not obsessed at all…


6. Blog work! The BLOGROLL is up friends!!Untitled

I hope I spelt everything right and got the right URLs! Please tell me if there are any mistakes!


I also updated my Emma’s Eats page! I’m loving the Pancakes section personally Winking smile


Bring on Pancake Sunday I say! Open-mouthed smile


6. Dry shampoo. I stopped buying it for a while in an effort to get myself to wash my hair more, but I saw it on sale and caved.DSC00390

Sorry guys but I may never wash my hair again. And dry shampoo I will never again forsake you for the real thing. You are so much better.


What was one of your Friday Faves? Share with me pleeease!


Favourite hummus flavour? Roasted red pepper, and this spicy Piquant one!


Random Q: What is your favourite colour? Green I think! Haha I guess you can tell by my blog colour! Smile with tongue out


Have an AMAZING weekend!! Love you friends!!

  1. My Friday fave was meeting up with Laura @keepinghealthygettingstylish for a drink and a chat! :) So nice to be able to talk with a bloggy friend about foody stuff that normal people don’t understand!
    Favourite hummus flavour would probably be caramelised onion or garlic!
    My favourite colour is deep purple!

  2. I just bought the sabra spinach and artichoke hummus from costco last night :) good thing I don’t have any crackers because it would be gone!! I’ve already used it in almost every meal though :)

  3. Yay for Friday!! My fave today was a chocolate coconut ice cream bar. Oh. Lawd. Love affair right there. As for hummus, chocolate chip cookie dough ;) But if we’re talking normal hummus, then I usually like the original flavor the best; although roasted red pepper is mighty tasty too. Fave color is a lavenderish/greyish purple. Love you!

  4. Thank you for adding me to your blogroll! I’m honored!

  8. My friday fav was chocolate. For some reason I had these crazzzzy cravings that carob powder could not satisfy, so I devoured nearly a whole pack of chocolate buttons with yogurt. Bliss.
    Oh my, Buddy is so CUTE ! I just want to steal him ! He is gorgeous , can I borrow him please?
    love this post xo
    Luna Bites Blog recently posted..I have a deep dark secret to confess…

  9. My friday fave was definetely the weather! It’s rained all week, but today it’s hot and sunny. Your meals looks good as always, and I love the pancake section. My favorite color is white. Kind of unusual, but I’ve always liked it the best…maybe because it reminds me of marshmallows.

  10. My Friday Fave was a Trader Joe’s mushroom/truffle flatbread/pizza dinner.

    I love greek olive hummus. Roasted red pepper is second.

  11. I got a pedicure after a half marathon one time, and the lady kept cringing her face at my feet. I kinda felt bad that my feet were so gross, but they felt and looked so good afterwards.

  15. I like lime green a lot like a have a bunch of random lime green things. But I also really like pink and bright blue too. I’ve tried dry shampoo before but gave up on it and just didn’t wash it… haha
    Friday fave was seeing my sister graduate
    P.s. your doggy is SO cute!

  16. I’ve never tried dry shampoo, but I do have quite a bit of trouble washing my hair so maybe I should invest in this stuff. I’ll probably abuse it like mad. I’m so happy your shins are feeling so much better! I can’t wait until I’m all good and recoered. The pain of the rest is better than the pain of the injury!
    Fave hummus flavor = carmelized onion or bay spice!! So good.

  17. You are seriously too cute! We have such similar personalities, haha! Except I’m not a badass runner like you!

    My fave today would have to be peanut butter. I may / may not have eaten it 3 times in one day. WOO!

    I just got my toes done for the first time the other day. My feet are so ticklish!

  22. Yay, washing hair is such a bummer, dry shampoo is so much quicker than the regular routine :)
    I worship all te friday faves you posted – sweating, breakfasting, hummus eating etc. are all those things everyone SHOULD enjoy, no matter what the day is:)
    My friday fave was a lunch with my sister (we had bulgur with shiitake mushrooms, roasted tomatoes and beets) and dinner with my roommate which ended with a long night talk about everything and was really pleasant:)
    My fave hummus is the one I make at home. They don´t sell any variations of hummus around here, so you have to be creative :)
    My favourite colour is red, green and I have a weak spot for black :)

  23. Love your Friday Faves! The oatmeal looks delicious, and your dog is so cute :D
    My friday faves would be : The beautiful weather we have now, our cute gym memeber (makes me smaile all day long at work), chocolate and green tea in the morning, and a friend and white wine in the park later today!

  31. Oh my gosh!! A new pancake tab!! Here’s my idea of a perfect day: I meet up with you. We go running (and you leave me in your dust because you’re so fast, of course). Buddy greets us as we get home. And then you cook me pancakes ;).

    P.S. I am so honored you included me in your blogroll! Sending an email reply soon! :)

  38. Your sandals are so cute! Love ‘em! Buddy is pretty adorable too. :)

    Haha! I haven’t had a dry shampoo since I lived in China. I need to buy some and see if I still like it.

  39. Hahaha, I always feel for the poor pedicurist who has to do my feet! One time my mum and I went in the nail salan and the difference in the pile of dead skin they shaved off between me and my mum was incredibly embarrasing. :P

    Isn’t Sabra hummus the best? I usually make my own but you can not beat the roasted red pepper!!

    Friday fave- I watched Water For Elephants last night. I’m in looooooooove. :)

    • HAHA that’s hilarious!! I’d be the same, don’t worry! ;)

      And yes Sabra is the bomb.com! SO CREAMY it blows my MIND!

      Oooh I’ve wanted to see that movie for AGES, and I definitely will since you loved it! :D

  40. I like my smoothies in a bowl like that topped with PB too :) they’re the best post workout fuel up!
    My favorite color is purple and I’m with you on the spicy humus girl! Sabra makes a spinach and artichoke one that’s pretty darn good too!
    O.C. recently posted..Trying something new!

  41. Woah your blog roll is INTENSE! So much blog lovin’ going on right thuuur. Thanks for including me!
    My fave humus is either roasted red pepper or tomato basil! Holy yum right there!

  42. Your blog roll is lookin’ good. I feel so honored to be apart of a it :P

    Fav hummus flava is this smoked tomato and basil kind at a little local health food store. It’s so good! Hummus is one of those things I always buy store bought just because I suck really bad at making myself!

    My favorite color is orange! :D
    Megan recently posted..Put the lime in the coconut review recipe

  43. I like Sabra’s Roasted pine nut flavor Hummus. I also had half a tub last night for dinner, so I feel less guilty now :)
    But your eats on this page look sooo yummy! Ahh, sweet potatoes, hummus, pb, oats, smoothies. All my fave things!
    P.s. My favorite color is GREEN, too! Get out of here. WE are so bffs.

    I’m unsure about what dry shampoo is. haha
    And I tried to figure out what Friends episode that is, but I just can’t!
    You’re so lucky you can watch the best show ever while working out! At the gym on campus we have a couple tvs but they’re always on the news, hgtv, the travel channel, etc.. and there’s no sound. There are only subtitles :/

    But yea, I’m surprised there was no date action today with as many as you have now! haha :)
