Weekend Recap: Zombies, Thrifty Deals, Foodporn, Frankenstorm Prep and Giveaway Winner!

Happy almost Halloween everyone! It's not going to be much of a Halloween for us New Yorkers with Frankenstorm rolling in to town tomorrow, but I think most people already celebrated on Saturday. I know I sure did!

Yesterday my roommate Buffy and I Zombiefied ourselves, he was a zombie skydiver and I was a zombie hooker :) We met up with the lover boy, who was Captain Sixpack, and went out to a bar with some friends. It was a fun time, we danced and acted silly all night. It was a great time!

Earlier that day I went to the Salvation Army near my place and got a cute mug with my initials for $1.99 and a new fruit bowl for $6.99! I LOVE a good deal!


I cooked up some yummy treats after shopping, coconut banana pancakes topped with pumpkin almond butter spread and shredded coconut and later made Buffy and I some plantains. My taste buds were happy as usual!

And I picked the winner of the $50 Whole Foods gift card giveaway! Congrats to Jillian from the blog Bites of Balance! Jillian, I hope you enjoy buying lots of delicious Whole Trade products!

Last but not least today I've been prepping for Hurricane Sandy. That consisted of buying fruits, avocados, plantains, and making sure I had enough, water, coffee, tea, almond milk, stevia, grassfed ground beef, almond butter and pumpkin on hand to keep my tummy happy during the storm!

Tomorrow I start my first day at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition! I am beyond excited and am happy to have the day off from work to focus on getting started on my program!

I hope you all had a fun and safe weekend!
