Weekly Rewind~Hodge Podge Edition

rewindTime for another edition of Herbivore Triathlete’s Weekly Rewind!

I’ve been super busy this week, I know I’ve said that before, but it’s true! I feel like this week has just been go, go, go!

On Sunday I ran my very first 10K, you can read about my experience here.

My birthday was on Wednesday. I turned 35 (holy shit, when did I get old??)

Three kids + three bedroom house = shared bedrooms = recipe for disaster! We’ve had our house on the market since this past summer and have been casually looking for a 4 bedroom house. I found one that looked like it was a good fit for us, kind of out of town a bit and had a small amount of land. I contacted the Realtor  scheduled a viewing, and went to the house on the designated day and time. We waited for half an hour and she NO SHOWED! What kind of Realtor does that? I was annoyed to say the least. We had made childcare arrangements and cancelled my birthday dinner plans to go see this house. Ugh!

I’ve been reading a lot about photography this week:

By the way, I need this lens–>Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 Awesome lens at an awesome price!

Food I’m crushing on this week:

Weekly Rewind

It’s that time of the week when I share my favorites from around the blogosphere!

On Monday, Angela over at Oh She Glows posted this incredible looking Mocha Nutella. Boy do I wish I had a food processor after seeing this recipe. I know what I’m asking Santa for this year!

Cara from Fork and Beans is once again joining Brooke from Crackers on the Couch and making the 12 Days of Christmas cookies. Cara’s will be gluten, egg and dairy-free versions of Brooke’s cookies. Check out last year’s delicious cookies!

On Tuesday I was pressed for time to workout, so I did a quick workout at home. I love Fitness Blender’s Kettlebell HIIT Workout. 30 minutes of exercise burns between 8-14 calories per minute!

I’m on a quest to create a healthy and delicious homemade granola bar and happened to find this recipe on Gluten Free on a Shoestring! Who doesn’t love chocolate?

I picked up some SeaSnax at Wegmans this past weekend, and the logo is absolutely true! “Strangely Addictive”, I sure am glad I picked up a package in each flavor available!

Wednesday I read a few interesting articles. First up, this article on veganism and reduced rates of cancer. Next, I learned that Ellen DeGeneres eats eggs, but only “happy eggs” from her neighbor’s “happy chickens”.

Healthy Voyager posted a fantastic holiday gift list that’s healthy, vegan and green!

Somehow on Thursday I came across the blog, Pinch of Yum. How I have not found this site before I don’t know, but I am super glad that I did. I’m seriously considering buying Lindsay’s ebook, Tasty Food Photography. I also really like this series of posts by Lindsay’s husband, Bjork.

Thursday night my Princess goes to dance and my boy has karate. Both are at the same time (convenient right? LOL) and the hubs was working late so my father-in-law took the boy to karate and I drove my Princess to her dance class. Conveniently for me, the dance studio is across the street from the YMCA so I was able to fit in a quick 30 minutes on the elliptical. The YMCA is updating all their equipment, including their spin bikes, so I ran upstairs to get a peak at the new spin bikes, M3 Indoor Cycle by Keiser. I am so excited to go to class on Monday night to ride one of these!

Did you find any great articles on the internets this week? Any plans for the weekend?

Follow Friday Blog Edition 11.16.2012

Have you heard of Follow Friday over on Twitter? I thought it would be fun to do a blog edition here at Herbivore Triathlete.

Here are 4 blogs that I’m loving this week:

Averie Cooks~Oh my! This blog is full of yummy looking desserts; cookies, cakes, bars, pies, etc. Food porn, dessert edition! Averie writes detailed baking posts and provides mouth watering pictures throughout. I love her tips and tricks! The great thing for me is that a lot of her recipes are vegan or if they’re not, often times she will post how to adapt the recipe to make it vegan! I’ve added about 5 recipes to my “must make ASAP” list from this blog this week alone!

Fork and Beans~I love Cara and her blog! This week she has been posting fantastic recipes for Thanksgiving. All her recipes are vegan and gluten-free! The best part about Cara’s recipes is the ingredient list is short and the recipes are simple to make. Cara is super creative and her food kid-friendly, check out her post, 10 Kid (and Allergy) Friendly Thanksgiving ideas.

Girl Makes Food~Alissa posts delicious and easy healthy meals. I’ve made a few of them this week and have not been disappointed! Alissa is certified in holistic nutrition and each of her posts highlights the health benefits of the food, how great is that? Although not all of the recipes are vegan, there’s plenty to choose from!

Professor Vegan~I love the layout of Davide’s blog, it’s easy to navigate and is full of useful information for vegans. He has recipes on his blog but other fun things as well. Like his current, Walnuts for Brains Food Challenge. The challenge is challenge to have a handful of walnuts everyday for 2 weeks! Then you log onto Twitter, Facebook or Instagram to log your progress using the hashtag #WALNUTS4BRAINS (I’ve been adding walnuts to my baked oatmeal!)
