I’ve sung Lorna Jane’s praises on this blog before, and her recently released cookbook is no exception. Not only is the physical book super high quality and gorgeously designed…it’s full of incredible recipes. I love Lorna’s balanced approach to healthy eating that emphasizes truly nourishing your body as opposed to counting calories and dieting. I’ve already whipped up two of her recipes, and they did not disappoint!
Not quite ready to pull the trigger on Lorna’s cookbook? You can access several of her other nutritious recipes on the LJ Move Nourish Believe blog for free!
I know, I know. Boardwalk Empire is currently in its fifth season, and I’m just getting started. Luckily, the HBO Go app (for tablet, iPhone and Apple TV) makes catching up ridiculously easy. Scott and I started Season 1 two nights ago, and are already hooked. We may or may not have spent the past 48 hours walking around the house saying things like, “Gee…I really wish you would fold that laundry, doll,” in 1920’s gangster accents.
Yes, these are basically $100 stretch pants.
But they’re kind of the best thing since individual mini wine bottles.
My local Lulu hemmed them to the correct length and shipped them to my house for free. They are warm, they are comfy, they look like a million bucks. (For that price, they’d better!) The logos are hidden, so you can wear them outside the gym without a reflective Lululemon logo distracting from your boots and infinity scarf.
4. FitBit Zip
I’ve been a FitBit fan for years, and was devastated when Scott mistakenly washed and dried my FitBit One last month. (It was still attached to a pair of underwear. Whoops.)
Before I could order a new device, the organization I work for scored a ton of free FitBit’s for employees through our health insurance company! A few days later, I was rocking my new Zip with pride. While the Zip is less robust than the One (It doesn’t track sleep or stairs climbed), I actually prefer it. It uses a regular watch battery, which means I don’t have to recharge it every couple of days, and syncs to my computer/iPhone app with ease. The One had some major syncing issues. The Zip’s larger size is still small enough to wear discretely, but way easier to find. (And hopefully unlikely to be overlooked while washing dirty underwear.)
A friend recently tried to ordered a box of these online, and ended up mistakenly ordering 12 boxes. They ended up being so delicious, she opted to keep them all! She was kind enough to gift me a box, and they’re already almost gone. Not only are they delicious and filling…the ingredients are SO clean, green and healthy! Check it out:

- Organic Dates
- Organic Premium Blue Agave Nectar
- Organic Brown Rice Protein
- Organic Raisins
- Organic Bio Sprouts
- Flax Organic Bio Sprouts

I’m a huge fan of bars, and it’s great to have a tasty option I can munch on without feeling guilty for eating a ton of processed junk. At 300 calories and with 7g of fiber and 11g of protein, these have become my new favorite go-to breakfast!
What are you loving this month? Anyone else have a total TV crush on Boardwalk’s Nucky Thompson??
