I’ve had this book, The Minimalist Baker’s Everyday Cooking, saved to my desktop at work for a long time.
Although I couldn’t really care less about gluten-free recipes, I am really into whole foods and clean eating. I don’t practice clean eating all the time, but I am in love with the Whole 30 program and do it often. In fact, I’m planning on a recharge at the start of the new year (anyone with me??).
This book has tons of plant-based recipes that look pretty easy and delicious. It’s not high on my wish list, but I would love to try out some of the recipes.
When I was in Junior High I was obsessed with Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the movie, not the shitty TV show – sorry Cat). I was especially into her tough girl-ness, and the fact that she rocked a boxing bag.
My brother has been a boxer since his early teens and I’ve always been a little envious of his boxing equipment. He’s let me utilize some of it in the past, but he’s sort of a grump and I’d rather play with my nephews when I’m there anyway.
Several years ago I started attending kickboxing classes off and on. And I absolutely love it. I still go on occasion, but to be honest, it can get expensive AND when I’m teaching my own classes, I don’t always have the energy to go to other classes (aside from Zumba). But, I love boxing.
So, on my wish list this year, aside from my all my princess gear, I’m adding a free-standing boxing bag.
That way, I can haul it out and workout at home any time I want.
