Seattle has been HOT!
We tied with Arizona today! Crazy for this time of year!
Today was spent inside, cleaning the ENTIRE house from top to bottom! Every nook and corner was swept, vacuumed and mopped. What was once a dusty, dog hair zone is now a sparkling home once again! I have been walking around barefoot all night and it feels sooooo good! I love clean hard wood floors!
I did have some lunch at about 11:30 – I skipped breakfast. Ooops!
Have you guys heard of Better Bean? They are a Portland based company that specializes in BEANS! I first came in contact with them a year ago and then I met Meagan, one of the owners, at the Seattle Veg Fest this year. Such a sweetheart! I gave her a big hug and congratulated her on this amazing journey she is on!
Their products are fantastic! I love me some beans and no matter what you are craving, they have you covered!
I bought the Cuban Black Beans and ate them straight from the container today. I didn’t even heat them up!
And just look at the ingredient list – super simple, very clean and packed full of goood stuff!
I finally showered at 2:45! I was a hot mess after scrubbing the floors, 3 loads of laundry, vacuuming and organizing.
I also made myself a refreshing iced coffee – first iced coffee of the year!
I used my Keurig and brewed a K-Cup over ice. Then I added a splash of unsweetened almond milk and a few drops of stevia. So refreshing and good!
Jordan LOVED his first day at his new school! He was naming his new friends, sharing his play time adventures and letting me know how much he enjoyed it! I made him a simple snack of Chobani yogurt and apple slices.
I too had some apple slices and CB’s Nuts Peanut Butter.
The rest of the afternoon was spent outside, riding bikes and enjoying the sunshine!
Dinner was light and so good! We grilled up a piece of salmon seasoned with a little garlic power and pepper and I made a fresh spinach salad to go with it.
I sprinkled some dried basil, oregano, more black pepper and spritzed some fresh lemon juice on top of my piece.
My salad contained spinach leaves, red onion, kalamata olives, goat cheese, a splash of olive oil and some pepper.
It was exactly what I was craving!
Before it got too dark we all took a nice walk around the block. It was such a beautiful night out! The lights were reflecting off of the lake and there was a nice, cool breeze. Perfect!
