Summer Breakfast in Bed with Boll & Branch

Summer Breakfast in Bed with Boll & Branch
 Is there anything more relaxing than lounging in bed and having a lazy Sunday morning reading and starting the day off slow? The answer is yes. Breakfast in Bed is what I'm talking about. It is even better when someone else makes you breakfast and delivers it up to you like the Queen or King  you are. I remember making my Mom breakfast in bed on Mothers Day growing up and thought is was the most special thing my Sister and I could do for her.

Justin and I have made a stronger effort these past couple of month's to be a little more aware of what we are putting into our bodies. It is easy to get lazy and shrug off exercise or to rely on vegan convenience foods for lunch and dinner. We know what healthy choices we should be making but we don't always. It was time for us to drag ourselves out of our current routine and create a new one. We have started to become more active each day, Justin set up a pretty awesome home workout area for us in the basement and I have made a more concerted effort to avoid as many vegan convenience foods as possible - circling back to a more whole foods plant based approached.

We also have abstained from drinking - Justin for over a month as a bit of a reset and myself, I am still sticking with it- just an occasional drink on a special occasion (I mean come on, I couldn't miss out on my amazing Sangria for book club!). These little changes and tweaks have given both of us more energy, better nights sleep and overall in a better mood.

one pot lemony garlic pasta // nooch + veggies

one pot lemony garlic pasta // nooch + veggies
This dinner is so easy, it has been our go to dinner at least once a week on nights we have no inspiration to make anything else. It is the perfect dinner to use up an abundance of veggies staring back at you in the fridge or a great way to put your first CSA box to use. The easiest clean up too - one pan and your are done!

Chocolate Chip Coconut Muffins // Almond Flour + Walnuts

It is finally feeling like Summer here in New Hampshire and I'm loving it! Aside from the massive amounts of black flies, mosquitoes and ticks it has been pretty awesome spending as much time outside as we possibly can. Our morning hikes have turned into a hiking and swatting session with creatively made head gear about  half way through the hike with whatever piece of clothing we can bear to lose. I am pretty certain we are going to invest in those crazy screened in hats or learn to outrun the bugs. Hopefully this bug season will be short lived - fingers + toes crossed!
