Protein Fudge + Bonfires

I'm so happy you guys like the pancakes from yesterday! If anyone makes them, let me know - I'd love to throw up some links to other banana cream sauce lovers (:

Apparently, I wasn't the only one thinking pancakes yesterday either. The blog-o-sphere was full of pancakes and waffles! Just one more reason to love Sunday mornings...

fresh eats.
So I've been neglecting to show you all my daily eats for the past couple days! Here are just a few of the highlights.

WARNING: If you are feeling at all hungry, please skip these pictures. Doing so will ensure that you don't try eating your screen. Again. Just sayin.

Some serious good eats lately. On top of that, Saturday night as I was waiting for a friend to pick me up for a bonfire, I decided to make a single serving batch of Gracie's Peanut Butter Protein Fudge. It was probably the best decision of my life so far.

If you haven't tried this yet, I highly suggest you do! The puffed millet wasn't exaclty my favorite, however. Next time, I think I'll use dark chocolate peanut butter and walnuts - Mmmmmmm!

Here's my single (well, to be honest, more like double) serving breakdown:
  • 1/2 scoop protein powder
  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 tsp spelt flour
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp puffed millet
Mix altogether and pop in the freezer for five minutes if you're pressed for time like I was! Ten minute fudge, baby.

And just for the heck of it, I thought I'd post a picture of my bonfire attire. Because basically, I just don't post enough pictures of myself and I always love seeing the people who write the blogs I love.

I absolute love white button downs! I think they're so classy and summery. I wear mine all the time, with vests, belts, cardigans - you name it, I've probably worn it with a button down.

What's your favorite summertime outfit?

Well lovies, I'm off run! I've been night running lately since it's so incredibly hot out during the day. I've got four lonely miles ahead with just me and the good old ipod. Can't wait! Have a good night (:


  1. I wanted to make that fudge but didn't have millet puffs, so now that you said it would be better with something else I might do it with choco chips! Oooh I can't wait.
    And you look super cute! I can never seem to pull off the buttondown look, as much as I try. I love dresses and sandals in the summer!

  2. mmmm! Hey congrats on winning a ticket to the HLS....have fun! Enjoy!

  3. Oh my goodness, all your food looks fantastic! I should have followed your warning :)
    Your outfit is super cute too!

  4. Loving white oxfords!! I put my new one on the other day and 5 min later fumble my lipstick and it hit the shirt!! Good news is that dish soap gets lipstick out of shirts!

    similar to white oxfords I am obsessed with my light chambray button down. So summery and wonderful

  5. I have so been wanting to make that looks so fantastic!! Your outfit is so so cute too!! I love white button downs as well. They are so versatile..I just have problems keeping those suckers clean!! haha. I really love summer dresses. Those are my obsession right now!!

  6. Fantastically delicious looking eats as per usual. How do you do it, girl? :)

    And cute pic/outfit. I don't really have a favorite summer outfit going, but I am in love with wearing my white shorts. One of my guy friends commented that I was a little trend whore for having a pair. I was like are these a trend? I just love how the white makes my legs look tanner. Hahaa.

  7. Love the classic combo of white blouse and jean shorts. All your summer eats look delish too, you have totally made me hungry!

  8. You are beautiful, I must say, and that protein fudge sounds great! I need to give this a try ASAP

  9. You look adorable! and thanks for the tip on the protein fudge. I feel an afternoon snack coming on. Really:) I love your outfit. I am big on tanks. I like my arms and I like to show them off in the summer. So any strapless dresses or tanks with a cute bottom:) and a well pedicured foot:) OHH - and WHAT are those muffins. They look so cute!

  10. You're really speaking my name with that protein fudge! Sounds so easy....I might whip up some for my dessert tonight. Cute ensemble by the way! Very classic and summery. :)

  11. I need a good white button down. All the ones I find feel too dressy to wear with jeans.

    I just got a strapless maxi dress that I can't WAIT to wear. I'm a sucker for any type of skirt/dress in the spring and summer.

  12. Cute outfit. I can't seem to find a proper white button down. They either look too dressy, or I just can't find one that fits right. I love summer dresses or shorts with halter tops or spaghetti straps.

  13. You had me a the peanut butter fudge, but I am glad you threw in a hawt pic. Ow ow!

    I have a summer romper that I love, love love. Maybe bc I feel like I'm 5 again, ha!

  14. Where did you get your white button down? I love it!

    I usually live in cotton dresses in the summer... they feel like pjs :)

  15. hehe it must be a bloggy vibe that goes around and elicits pancake-making behaviour every once in a while - i made some this morning too!

    I LOVE your outfit! my favourite summer outfit is probably flowery mini-skirts with layered tanks, or sundresses.

    have a great day! :)

  16. I love your outfit and love button downs too! I love the necklace as well, adds a finishing touch! I like a white button down shirt with black dress shorts and heels too for a nite out! So cute!!

    Ok your eats always look yum! Love seeing peoples eats! Gives me ideas!!

    Hope you had a great night!xoxo

  17. I'm hungry but I looked at your pictures anyways. ;) they are fantastic.

    I also love seeing the people who's blogs i read (and hence why I feel OK posting silly pics of myself.) Your button down is so cute. I love light sungresses and flip flops in the summer. I'm not a big fancy sandal girl. a pair or reefs and I'm good to go.

  18. your outfit looks so crisp and clean. LOVE it.

    what kind of camera do you have? your pictures look great. My favorite is all of your fruit!

  19. I should have listened to your warning. Now I'm hungry!

  20. That's such a cute outfit! Really love the button-down look too.

    Touche about the self-photos, I really need to start adding more of those to my own--it's always an after thought! :)

  21. The fudge looks awesome!

    Cute outfit...I love button downs! Summer dresses are my go to outfit!

  22. I saw you won the HLS golden ticket - congrats lucky girl!! :)

    you're right... all of your eats look delicious... and that FUDGE!! it looks like the same ingredients I've used to make my "energy balls"... never thought about keeping it in one piece and freezing - I usually roll into singles and refrigerate.

    thanks for the great idea!

  23. You look GORGEOUS!

    I have a white button down that I haven't worn in ages. Now I know what to do with it! It looks great with that outfit!
