the small things(:

hey- happy sunday night(: i hope you all had a wonderful weekend! my aunt, uncle, and my little cousin finny left back for ny early this morning- miss them already! started off this beautiful sunday with a bowl of ….

OATS! oats with banana &  egg white whipped in, accompanied by a crumbled organic very berry granola bar, banana sliced on top, sliced almonds, clementine, & raisins on the bottom- yummm! i love it when you reach the bottom and there they are 🙂 its like when you used to get the presents in the cereal-

after going on a walk with my dad on saturday afternoon, i walked into the house to find the smell of my aunts famous freshly baked raisin crumble rolls. i flew into the kitchen to pick up a warm doughy thing of goodness, and slathered some peanut butter right on 😛 what a yummy snack!  dont you love aunts?

this is from a body lotion i got for christmas! strange i know, but this quote was really relatable to me:

how you climb up the mountain is just as important as how you get down the mountain.

this makes me think so much about how the path i was on months ago was so horrible and scary, and to get back to health that path was also scary, but it was so beautiful and inspiring and taught me so much!  i saw this and i really wanted to share this with everyone who is recovering, recovered, or even just seeking a little advice from the lotion doctors 😉

i hope you all had an AMAZING, sunshiney weekend, and i send you all huge hugs for this upcoming week!

xoxo always

Cookie time!

hey! happy wednesday 😀 i had a basketball program today- i’ve been doing it since monday and im loving it! i have to make sure i eat A WHOLE LOT though! sometimes i think i forget how much my body truly needs… the only person who can keep me healthy IS me- does that make sence? well today me and my 5 year old cousin finn had a fun night together! my mom and my aunt were at the soup kitchen all night so i was  happy to watch him: he is the cutest and guess what? he loves blog surfing! i was like OKAY we are definitely related! 😛

Finny in all his glory!

We decided to make cookies together! He lovesss nuts so decided to adapted some recipes and come up with this crazy creation… he even made one shaped as a giraffe!


1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup sliced almonds

½ cup oats

½ cup agave

½ cup sunflower oil

½ tsp vanilla

2 tbsp lemon zest

Grind the oats in a food processor  (or blender if you dont have one 😉 next add in the flour and mix it all up! gradually pour in the oil and agave together in a separate bowl. Add the vanilla & lemon zest, and mix for a minute or so! roll about an inch of dough into a ball and place on a cookie sheet (oiled or covered in parchment paper) and flatten- bake for 10 minutes and most importantly… ENJOY!

*makes 22 cookies and one giraffe shaped cookie 😉

crumbled into a bowl with green and blacks vanilla ice cream and smooshed strawberries and conserve 😀 !

i hope you all had an amazing wednesday!

whipped banana oats, LOTS of fruit, flax, almond butter, almonds! (almond overload:)

started off the rainy london morning (i miss the sun of the hamptons!) with a bowl of whipped banana oats, added in flax and a couple of almonds, strawberries and raspberries, and topped it off with almond butter! my ultimate comfort food and weekness[: !

had a really good day today but there was this kid who was younger then me who saw my lunch and said “Well its no wonder you gained so much weight”. Eesh- that was annoying to hear- especially because i dont concider that to be alot of food! compared to what i was eating on weight gain! i need the food and i have to keep assuring myself of that because sometimes i forget- going to read a book to my little sister and then might catch up on some GOSSSIP GIRL! hope you all had a wonderful day[:
