What Sound do Goats Make?

I'm anticipating a pretty quiet time around the blog-o-nets as people are out and about enjoying summer and the holiday. I hope you are doing something fabulous this weekend!
I haven't done a food post in quite a while with my traveling, school, and injury nonsense, so I am back to share some things I have been loving.  Clearly I have been eating- just look at my empty fridge.
Overnight oats in a jar with the remainder of THE best almond butter on the market. 
I also used the goat milk yogurt I bought at Trader Joe's earlier this week and loved it!  It's tart like Greek yogurt and extra creamy.  Since I embarrass myself on the daily, I was going around my kitchen saying 'baaaa' but then realized goats don't make that sound- I even googled it. Dork.

I have also been loving salmon of all kinds- here is my version of a lox breakfast sandwich:
Smoked salmon with arugula, slide of jarlsberg cheese, organic whipped cream cheese, and sweet chili sauce.  This made for quite the filling breakfast and I loved it!

I also enjoyed some baked salmon in my lunch yesterday in the form of an arugula and roasted beet salad:
I added laughing cow cheese, sunflower seeds, and wasabi peas for fun toppings and really enjoyed the combo.
I was pretty excited because I got these beets locally- in our backyard.  Meet my favorite farmer, who will be doing a guest post soon to tell you all about our vegetable garden.
Yoga, Yoga!
I have been loving my yoga studio.  It's much too nice for a goofball like me and I felt like I would get kicked out any second as I was sitting in the lounge waiting for my class enjoying my herbal tea.  You can read about my yoga month here.  I can't wait to go to my next class!
I hope you enjoy your weekend!  See you soon!

I completely agree--that almond butter from TJ's is the BEST! Well, for me it might be tied with Justin's Maple Almond :)

Have a great weekend, my fellow SF girl!

I'm totally hooked on yoga lately. I feels good to take slight rest from cardio. Yoga makes me want to eat healthy, including fresh garden veggies. I'm so jealous of your garden, i bet it's lovely!

Bwhahaha! I totally would have googled it too. I haven't tried any AB from TJ's yet. I'm a loyal Justin's girl, but I still try everything else. Next time I'm in Atlanta I'll snag a jar to see for myself.
