Playing Favorites and a Menu Plan

I like reading surveys on other blogs but I don’t usually post them and I’m not even sure why. I came across Playing Favorites on Amanda‘s blog and while I was reading it I thought about what my answers would be.

My favorite…

Color – I love different shades of coral (image from Opi).

Food – This changes often, right now it’s a variety of raw salads topped with a nut-seed combination for crunch and drizzled with my favorite homemade dijon  or avocado dressing.

Smell – Coffee brewing in the morning. It’s not the same any other time of day.

Book – I have 2 all time favorites, The Gift of Imperfection by Brene Brown and Times Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger.

Movie – Watching Mama Mia with my daughter.

Time of day – Early morning is simply the best.

Day of the week – I can’t believe I’m saying this but my favorite is Monday. It has a fresh start feeling to it.

Thing to do when I’m bored – I don’t know. I can’t remember the last time I was bored with nothing to do.

Celebrity – I don’t think I have a favorite.

Drink – Smoothies

Name Your Favorite jillconyers.com

TV Show – Love to laugh with Modern Family. Very few shows have ever made me laugh as much as this show.

Fruit – Strawberries! Perfectly sweet and juicy! If they’re not part of the main course, then they’re served on the side for almost every meal.

Vegetable – Beets! Strange I know but raw beets on salads and sauteed beet greens are so good! I think part of beets being a favorite is because it’s so new to me. I rarely if ever have eaten beets in the past and I didn’t even know you could eat the leaves.

Store – I don’t have a particular favorite but in general, athletic and running stores.

Workout – I  running. Followed closely by yoga. Check out What Yoga Has Taught Me and see why it’s a favorite.

Quote – I love quotes and have many that I consider favorites. The favorite of the moment depends on my mood or what I’m doing. Right now I’m a sucker for the Oprah-Starbucks quote sleeves.

Potato chip flavor – I don’t eat potato chips but a bag of tortilla chips is another story.

Meal of the day – I don’t think I have a favorite. Probably dinner because it’s the one time in our day that is almost guaranteed family time.

Ice cream – I don’t eat ice cream.

Season – I’m loving the spring right now but my favorite is fall. The colors, fall veggies, the crisp feeling in the air and perfect running weather.

Dessert – Lately it’s been chia pudding. I’m tweaking a Chocolate Chia Pudding recipe that is decadently healthy! I actually love lava cakes too but I haven’t found a gluten free recipe that tastes good…yet.

Lifehack – I recently came across 2 on Pinterest . One that I’m working on and one that is genius. (Source)

  1. nobody else understands my love of beets! i can literally eat them just on their own and be a happy camper.

  2. I don’t eat ice cream often now that I am trrrrying oh so hard to stick to paleo, but I have been experimenting with homemade, meaning no bad sugars, I use coconut milk, and fresh fruits/ingredients that we have around the house. It’s been awesome even though my recipes still need a bit of work, I still love eating something that seems like an indulgence, but is really just fruit. Plus, I can give them to my son and not feel like I’m being mean while all the other kids eat whatever 😉

  3. I am a big fan of Will Smith but I don’t normally follow celebrities too much! Your snacks for the week look really tasty–I’d probably save a ton of money if I made my own trail mix instead of buying it!

  4. I am a morning person, too. I love the smell of coffee any time of the day, though!

  5. I love the inside of the kitchen cabinet with the measuring cups and conversions!!!
    And, I’m with you – I don’t eat ice cream!

  6. ohh i am so similar to you! and i love your quotes. But ice cream, i don’t eat often, but when i do it’s Nadamo, which is amazing coconut ice cream. great in smoothies!

  7. Love that polish color! I love anything coral or pink. Modern Family is also one of my favorite shows- I’m always laughing out loud. That and Friends are probably the only shows that genuinely crack me up…oh and How I Met Your Mother!

  8. If my polish doesn’t always chip from work, I would honestly have fifty shades of coral! It’s so perfect for summer!

  9. I ADORE beets. I saw one the other day the size of a smaller football and wanted to take it so bad but realized that I didn’t have anything that could handle it!

  10. I definitely don’t have a favorite celebrity- there are plenty that I enjoy, but definitely not a “favorite”. I definitely want to try to make chia pudding this summer- it sounds awesome.

  11. I loved reading this! The lifehack of measurements is brilliant!!! There are several celebrities I like but I can’t really pinpoint a favorite.

  12. I’m so glad you said your favorite day is Monday – Monday is one of my favorite days as well! I guess that is a good sign that I don’t hate my job – I think most people who hate Mondays must not like their jobs very much 🙂 The strawberry trick is awesome. My favorite kitchen trick, but is probably well known but new to me, is to put eggs in ice water after hard-boiling them to make it easier to peel off the shell.

  13. So I’m not crazy!

    My favourite foods are salads too! Especially with some sort of texture/fat source to garnish the greens with.

    And what a fun post…maybe I’ll do it sometime too!

  14. My favorite kitchen lifehack is storing the all-natural peanut butter upside down in the cupboard. No stirring needed.

  15. Everything Oprah says is like verbal gold, I swear. She has so many great, inspiring quotes! What a good place to put her quotes! Hope you’re enjoying the holiday weekend, Jill!

  16. Love this. I now want to try beets. Cant believe ive never had them before.

  17. My fave time of the day is also early morning. In fact, I love waking up before everyone else on the weekends. It’s just so quiet and peaceful

  18. Early morning is the best! Haha I am the only 18 year old I know who willingly gets up at 4:00am every morning 😉
    And beets rock! I have them raw on my big dinner bowl messes practically every day! I haven’t roasted them in a whole, since that takes a bit more work, but there is something so good about a nice roasted sweet beet (eaten cold is the best!). I don’t even bother peeling them any more when I have them raw, haha pure laziness!

  19. I don’t really have a favorite celebrity. The closest would be Ellen or Oprah just because I think they seem like kind, generous people. Fun survey!

    1. Would you count Jillian M and Tony H as celebrities? I say yes and they would be my favorite 🙂
