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.
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
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)
