Friday Food and Favorites: Personal Work Spaces and Healthy Food

Friday, August 24, 2012

I've been thinking a lot about time. Or more like the lack of it. I never seem to have enough. My kids are older so you would think I'd have hours free. Everyday I think I'll just wiz through my to-do list and have time to go get a massage or something. But before I know it it's like 6 pm and I still haven't crossed everything off. Does this happen to you too?

Maybe it's just the summer. Everyone's on different schedules...or no schedules at all. So, now that the kids will be going back to school, I'm thinking a lot about carving out a nice working space for myself. Then maybe I'll become more efficient and really get my lists crossed off. Or maybe the idea of decorating a pretty personal space of my own is just another tactic of procrastination. Either way...I had lots of fun on Pinterest finding some really amazing inspirations. Here are some of my favorites...which ones are yours??

Now onto food...well in this fantasy I would lazily prepare myself something healthy, delicious and really pretty every day. Every once in a while I go a little crazy with food and eat whatever I want, but then I usually don't feel so great. So I always return to light, natural and healthy. And while those foods may not be as rich in flavor and texture, they are delicious in their own 'feel good' kind of way. Here are some pretty ideas for light and healthy fare. Remember: You are what you eat. Light+healthy food = light+healthy you!
Preparing your favorite veggies and protein in creative and gourmet ways makes eating them fun!

Here's to a peaceful, productive and healthy weekend!

  13. ah, I WISH for a workspace....
    when we first bought our house (coming from our 800 sq foot condo in philly) it seemed HUGE...and now...the walls are closing in..and with the 2nd one arriving (any day) even less room for mama's work space...
    one day I will have a beautiful space like the ones you have featured above.
    Hope you are well...enjoy the csection is scheduled for I am on the 4 day countdown until I am a mother of 2....yikes!
