SANY2483The pair made for a delightful on-the-go dinner. 

Simplicity and Sleep
It has been such a busy weekend between
all the Weight Watchers excitement on Saturday (thank you for all of congratulatory remarks!!), gym on Sunday (mini run, BodyFlow and Zumba) and then Annie rehearsal. I spent Sunday afternoon chopping veggies for the soup and salad whilst singing along to Annie karaoke tracks in preparation for my evening rehearsal.

With everything that has been going on lately, I’ve really been trying to keep things simple with my eats. Soups, salads and snick-snacks that are easy to grab have been amazing because they require very little thought on my part. I’m trying to find a good balance of work and play and really making the effort to take care of myself. I also spent the day in comfy lululemon cropped pants, tank, hoodie and hairband – no thinking required!SANY2490 And even though I have a million things I could do as I write this (10:34 on Sunday night) I am heading to bed because I need as much sleep as I can get! It’s another busy week ahead!

What are some of your favourite simple things in life? Fav soup and/or salad?

The simple things in life would probably be the relationship that I have with my family and friends. You don't need to try. The love and friendships come easy and naturally :)
My favourite soup is butternut squash soup and I love warm spinach salads!
The salad you made looks/sounds delicious!!

Favorite simple things in life = the quality time I spend with my family and friends; and my "me time" :)

I'm not much of a soup person, but my raw foods counselor Gena (from the "Choosing Raw" site) has incredible soup recipes on her blog!

Favorite salad = S&M salad from One Lucky Duck in NYC (greens, hempseeds, dulse, lemon-argon dressing, raw rosemary crackers)

Best things in life are spending time with quality people, running, good music..the list goes on and on!

I agree that the wonderful relationships with good friends and family are some of the simplest pleasures in life!

I am playing Grace (Warbucks' secretary) in the show :)

Simple things are enjoying time with family and friends. Getting a good run or yoga session in and feeling good! I love making simple salads ... like kale, sesame seeds, lemon juice. maybe some nutritional yeast on top too. Not a huge soup person - though like a good lentil soup or avocado soup.
