Thank goodness it’s Friday! For real this was a long week! Let’s round up some Friday Favorites shall we?
Switching it up this week! I absolutely adore her voice and this song has such an amazing beat. I think it is impossible to not be in a good mood while listening to it!
I’ve been getting a lot of questions about Barre classes and I found this great video with my favorite Tone It Up Girls. Renee Herlocker was a Pure Barre gal so this video is a nice 15 minute overview of some moves you would see in a typical class. A full Barre class is 55 minutes. I was cracking up watching Katrina in the beginning she kept on dropping out of the poses. Also note both the girls were moving their legs a lot. Renee kept on cueing “small range of movements”….In Barre the smaller the movements the more you can work deep into the muscle group. So if you wanted a taste of a class check out this video! Let me know what you think and if you have any questions!
I made this recipe this week. It involved taking out my mandolin and not almost slicing my finger off. I actually used the “safety” top for once….wow what a difference it made! I substituted agave nectar inside of maple syrup. I sautéed shallots in sesame oil and then added it to the sauce. Also make sure you use thai basil. It has a completely different taste to it in my opinion. It has a more mild taste and works well in the asian dishes. I stopped by my Asian market to grab it. That is my favorite place! I never know what fun discoveries with sauces or seasonings I will find.
