Five For Friday
Hey guys! Happy Friday!
It’s 5 for Friday time and that means I’m sharing some of my favorite eats and reads from around the web!
First up: EATS!
Top 5 things to make this weekend
This simple tomato soup from 101 Cookbooks sounds SO good to me…you swirl in coconut milk! Yum.
Caramelized Peach and Brie Quesadillas – Oh Oprah, you never steer me wrong. Now I know what to do with all that leftover brie!
Pretty sure I am making these Cocoa Buttermilk Biscuits with Brown Sugar Cinnamon Butter from How Sweet It Is this weekend; although I will be veganizing them because I don’t do buttermilk (I’m not some buttermilk snob or anything…I just don’t like that you have to buy a big carton and it always goes to waste). I LOVE this blog, b-t-dubs. Jessica if you are reading this, I would like to be your friend please. Kthx.
Gluten Free Irish Soda Bread from Edible Perspective! Because it’s St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow! And because bread is delicious, so I’m pretty sure I will like this bread. Does anyone know what the deal is with soda bread anyways? Why is a traditional Irish food? 10 points to the first person to google this for me.
Green Garden Chili - Again, because it’s St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow! And this is somewhat green….at least it has some good green stuff in it :)
Top 5 things to read:
Does Love at First Sight Really Exist? – via Greatist
I’m not sure if I believe in love at first sight or not. I think when you have met your soul mate, it’s really easy to know almost immediately. But I also think that a lot of people are so eager to fall in love, that they can easily mistake just about anybody for their soul mate. Eternal optimism…not the worst thing in the world.
44 Healthy Foods Under $1 – via Greatist
I love this list! I hate when people say that eating healthy is expensive. Yes, my grocery bill is astronomical, but that’s because I allow it to be. Eating healthy is not expensive and this list proves it! Sure, you can get a Value Meal for under $10, but you also have to consider the cost to your health…and your waistline!
Trail Running Dangers…and how to avoid them – via FitSugar
A great reminder. With this beautiful weather we’ve been having, lots of people are hitting the trails for a run or hike. Safety first friends!
Red Meat Linked to Premature Death – via Chicago Suntimes
A new study indicates that eating red meat (processed or unprocessed) can increase an individual’s risk of premature death, as well as raise the risk of death from cancer or heart disease. Yowza! Another reason to eat less meat!
10 Ways to Spring Clean Your Life – via Iowa Girl Eats
I’ll be doing, um, ALL of these. So should you!
And since it’s the weekend how about a bonus…
60 Healthier Drinks for Boozing – via Greatist
My go-to low cal drink is Maker’s Mark on the rocks…but I love a glass of red wine too. Oh and if you’re going to imbibe…don’t drive and stick to one or two!
Hope you have a great weekend!
