Friday Night Drinks
It’s Friday and for those of you who read my blog you know that means it’s After-Work Drinks night with my husband 🙂
Patrick and I enjoy this little activity because it gives us time to sit and chat about a couple things.
- We discuss what has happened during the work week, the good, the bad and the ugly.
- We share what we would both like to accomplish over the weekend.
- Most importantly it’s a way for us to de-stress after a long work week.
Friday After-Work Drinks (done in moderation) is a great way to kick-off the weekend 😀
Same old breakfast of vanilla Chobani yogurt topped with pumpkin pecan granola. Tastes great and filling. Perfect combo 🙂
I’ve tried the Red Machine and Green Machine Naked Juices so it was time for me to check out the Blue Machine:
The Blue Machine was good but I was really hoping it would have more of a Blackberry taste instead of the strong Blueberry flavor. My favorite is still the Red Machine 😀
As with all the Naked juices, the ingredients are simple and good for you:
The Fruit Inside
- 27 Blueberries
- 3 Blackberries
- 3 1/4 Apples
- 1 Banana
The Boost Inside
- 38 mg Vitamin B3
- 11 mcg Vitamin B12
- 114 mg Vitamin C
- 19 mg Vitamin B5
- 4 mg Vitamin B6
- 13 g Fiber
- 57 IU Vitamin E
I’ve decided Friday’s will be Freshii days 🙂 Which means it will also be soup or salad days.
This Friday I went with a salad. My salad included romaine lettuce, shaved parmesan, carrots, broccoli, celery, sweet corn, cucumbers, red onions, sunflower seeds and cajun chicken with balsamic vinegar. I also asked them to chop everything for me.
And boy did they ever. This salad was so chopped I could of eaten it with a spoon.
My husband likes to have big pieces of salad but I’m a fan of having everything chopped up. This way I get a little bit of everything in every bite I take. Plus I don’t get stuff all over my face from trying to shove a huge piece of lettuce in my mouth 😉
This Friday was extra fun because I had an order of sweet potato chips along with my root beer.
The chips were really good. They seasoned them with pepper and salt which was the perfect seasoning.
What do you do on Friday’s to help kick-off the weekend?
Salad should definitely be cut small! Though, at home I cut my lettuce into “ribbons” —long thin strips.
Friday is a work night for me – (I am a winemaker so I have to be around on the weekends when we get the most foot traffic at the winery) — but Saturday night is the traditional “pizza night” in my house, which definitely makes it feel like the weekend to me — even if I have to go to work the next day.
