Happy Friday! How was your week? I’m still wondering how we got to Friday so fast! Or… how about March? Yeah, time is certainly doing it’s thing.
Scott and I have a fun-filled weekend on the horizon with his nephew coming into town, and we are looking forward to showing him some of our favorite spots in Detroit! I’ll be sure to share the highlights.
All right, it’s time for another edition of Friday Favorites! I enjoy seeing what you have been loving too, so please feel free to play along and join in on the comments section and link-up at the bottom!
Friday Favorites #79: Week of 3/6
• chia kombucha
I remember trying kombucha about a year ago and really liked it.
There are numerous health benefits of drinking it including helping with digestion as well as providing nutrients for natural energy. I featured a different version earlier this week, and after trying the version with chia seeds in it, I have to say that I like it a lot better!
Scott wasn’t a fan of the chia seeds, but I loved them. Both the Enlightened Synergy raspberry and grape chia flavors were fantastic, and I will definitely be on the lookout for more when they go on sale. (They usually run about $3+ a bottle!)
• running in the snow with Roadie
Although it’s been sunny this week, it’s been pretty flipping cold… except for Monday.
Monday was beautiful!
I had a break in my afternoon, so I took advantage of the “warm” and sunny weather in the 30s. I hooked Roadie up on his leash for a run and took him for a 3.5 mile loop around the neighborhood. He was so excited!
We hopped on the trail for a hot minute, but spent most of our time on the sidewalks. We found breaks in the snow, but there were certainly tricky and slippery parts to navigate through.
As soon as I starting getting my hopes up for a warm front, it dropped back down to the teens the next day and has been cold ever since. The good news, however, is that it is supposed to get back up to the 30s and even 40s this weekend. Hallelujah!
Have you guys ever seen AmaZing Grass bars? I’m not sure where you can get them besides specialty health food stores or online.
A friend of mine left me one to try and thought I would get a kick out of the green center!
It may look a little questionable, but it was really good! I love that the bars are made with whole foods and are also Non-GMO, vegan, and gluten-free. Yum!
• Panera broth bowls
I saw the new broth bowls being advertised at Panera a while back and finally tried one last night. I was a little disappointed to only see two flavors available, but the Soba Noodle Bowl with Chicken was pretty tasty!
Scott and I ordered the same bowl and will both be ordering them again. So good!
• meyer lemons
I’m not exactly sure what to do with these bad boys, but I have a fresh batch of meyer lemons straight from a friend’s house in California if any of you have ideas.
The obvious answer here is lemonade, but I don’t know. The snow avalanche in our front yard just doesn’t scream summer to me. I’ll probably end up slicing them and making a couple batches of fruit infused water. That sounds good to me!

All about my favorite morning treat…
It’s not coffee, it’s princess juice.
