Say Hello to Spring

April 16, 2009 at 1:42 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 5 Comments

I’m not going to lie, I was tired coming home from work today. I did manage to get my work out in, though. I busted out a short (painful- hip +knee…frustration!) run and then came home and did Level 2 of the Shred. P.S. Jillian Michaels is crazy. But that’s beside the point.

Anyway, when I was done with my workout I wanted something pretty low key and easy but also light and refreshing. It’s been such a pretty day here in the 60’s day and the sun was still shining when I sat down for dinner at close to 7 o’clock! I love it!

Here’s what came together:

Sauteed Kale and sweet potato with some black beans topped with tomato and avocado.

So simple but still full of lots of different flavors, colors and textures. I love avocados! I wish they weren’t so dang expensive. I’ve been enjoying the ones we got on sale this past week tremendously.

And in true Bites + Bowls fashion, check out my new nail polish I got to celebrate the start of Spring!

Scandal! Of course I was a frugal shopper and got this shade at Walgreens for $1.99! It still did the trick perfectly. There really is nothing like some fresh nail polish to put a little bounce in my step. Especially since I spend the majority of my day typing, it’s nice to look down to a bright and cheery color! It’s the little things 😉
