Friday Favourites – My Favourite Things to do on a Snowy Day

So it’s been snowing here non-stop for over 30 hours, and apparently it’s going to continue for about 8 more! Despite it being a snow day, I still had to go into school 😦 There were no students there, which made for a bit of a long day! I managed to do some planning and some photocopying, so I’m all set for next week, but the highlight of my day had to be my 10km run through the upper halls – yep, I ran laps…40 of them…

Although it was a little boring, I think it was better than running on the treadmill! And since it probably would have taken me about 3 hours to drive to the gym, run and drive back to work, I think it was a pretty good alternative.

So, now that I’ve shared that with you, it’s time to get on with this weeks Friday Favourites. Since its snowmagedden out there, I figured I’d share with you my favourite things to do on a snowy day

1. Toboggan – After work I picked up the kids, bundled them in their snow gear, and we headed out for a little fun in the snow!

2. Drink Hot Chocolate – Check out this delicious and clean hot chocolate recipe…I’ve posted the link before, but it’s perfect for a day like today. Thanks Meg!

3. Bake Cookies – Occupying the kids can get tricky at times, but baking is a great way to have little fun, and, something good always comes of it! Today we made these cookies posted by The Eat Clean Diet on Facebook. You can find the recipe here.

We substituted chocolate chips for raisins and I think next time I will use sucanat or another sugar substitute rather than stevia, but overall, the cookies are really good!

Morning Snack – I was seriously still full from my smoothie this morning, so I just packed a couple of Eat Clean Lucky Ginger Spice Cookies to take with me to the gym for after my 11:30 workout.

Lunch – Veggies and Hummus – Again I was still feeling a little full from my smoothie, so I opted for veggies and hummus to start – I was going to have a slice of Eat Clean Deep-Dish Chicken Pizza with it, but the veggies seemed to be enough.

Afternoon Snack #2 – It was such a cold, rainy day, Ryan and I decided we needed a little something to warm us up – normally I would have headed over to Starbucks and picked up a Chai Latte, but since I’m Eating Clean, and a Chai Latte has 43g of sugar in it!!! I decided to make us some homemade Eat Clean Hot Chocolate, super yummy and only 17g of natural, not refined sugars. You can find the recipe, as well as many other great Clean recipes over on my friend Meagan’s blog Megified.

Evening Snack – 2 Eat Clean Lucky Ginger Spice Cookies theses have to be one of my favourite Eat Clean cookies so far. The are so chewy! I will definitely be making them again very soon, next time I think I will double up on the spices to give the cookies a little more ‘kick’!
