We made it to “summer”! At least…school is over summer, but not warm weather summer! It’s May and it’s colder then ever! Plus side is that we finally have heat and hot water for the first time all year (haha, the irony!) Down side is I’m still in the midst of extremely bad health woes. If I make it past 6pm without already going to bed, that’s a win. Now that I’ve finished the semester (the hardest year of college yet. Bonus point for passing statistical methods!) I’m hoping to really focus on my health…that means going to more doctors, getting more tests, and playing around with medications (which I’m not a fan of).
We’re just going to keep trucking along in this weird and difficult season of life right now. Summer is for recuperation and rest and I guess that will be the theme moving forward for the next few months. And for this weekend I hope I’ll feel well enough to celebrate Mother’s Day with my mom! I have something fun planned (make sure to follow my Instagram story for the details!)
SS Posts from the week:
Wednesday: Grilled Chicken Burgers with Black Olive Tapenade (Gluten-Free, Paleo) + Big Indoor Grill Giveaway!
Blog Posts and Links I loved this week:
Life, Mind, Body, Spirit:
From a battle for it, now a battle against it.
Have a “box” of trick to keep your grounded.
Just a teeny bit better.
It takes some “extremes”.
What I believe: Facebook will kill us all.
This was surprising!
The times have changed (but shopping will always be my job in the family!)
This was fascinating.
This was a mind-blowing study!
Health, Celiac Disease, & Food Allergies:
Wait…omg…I’m dying. Why have I never seen this? I feel like a major rant post is coming…
This is a MUST listen to!
This is something like taking Lactaid for Lactose Intolerence, but NOT safe for celiac disease.
Hahaha. Case in quote.
Food is medicine is certain cases.
Blogging & Social Media:
Must have basics!
So many people have become trapped in this. Sad times.
Never run out of content to share!
These are great for a conference!
Fantastic resources to keep in mind!
It won’t let you see what you want…ever.
A fantastic lists of free guides and courses!
True. I know my favorites and who I trust. (Because that girl who just started her “blog and blogging” last week does not know a thing.)
Tech & Photography:
I actually liked these. But If you do a scroll of IG, you know photo quality doesn’t matter 😛
Let me just say that Dropbox was the best investment I ever made.
I love playing around with colors!
Career, Business, & Success:
I do love words <3
We all need some diversification!
This man is brilliant.
I sense a lot of “learning” going on, but little to no action.
Video & Podcast Episodes:
Fantastic video from my favorite fit bros!
This was rich! You will not look at your analytics the same way!
This was great. A must listen to for parents, teachers, or anyone!
Making some of this!
Things To Eye & Buy:
+ On to a new book. Just a fantastic classic by the best!
+ This SD card! Guys! I thought my laptop was the problem, then my card reader, but no…it was the old sketchy SD card I was using. I almost last 2 recipes, but was able to get them off the card and then found this gem that works MUCH better (I forgot I had this!)
+ Ooooo I want this!! I feel summer ice cream treats?
(Follow me on Pinterest – RebeccaGF666)
+ Babamesco – Baba Ghanoush + Romesco…fantastic fusion!
+ Vegan French Toast with Lavender-Infused Syrup – This would be a beautiful Mother’s Day treat!
+ Potato Parsnip & Leek Soup with Chive Gremolata – That chive gremolata sounds amazing!
+ Nice Cream with Cinnamon, Cardamom, and Almond Caramel Swirl – One perfect summer treat!
+ Salted Caramel Fruit & Seed Popcorn Bars – These take snacking to a new level!
+ Mushroom & Fiddlehead Quinoa Risotto with Parsley Oil – This looks divine! Love anything with fiddleheads!
A few things I loved about my week or am grateful for:
+ Surviving Junior year of college! Summer please…now!
+ Crossing my fingers that the new medications I’m trying will do the trick and I’ll be back to my old self soon :/
So tell me:
+ How will you be celebrating Mother’s Day this weekend?
