Guilt-Free Protein Donuts

IMG_2220.JPG.jpeg

Happy Friday! I am so excited for the weekend! I wanted to let y'all know that I am changing my blog posts to Monday and Friday because I have started a new job! Today I wanted to share with y'all some fun ways to incorporate more protein into your day along with eating a snack that usually gets a bad rep, guilt-free.

Normally I would never seek out to eat a donut but when I found this recipe to be able to make them in a healthy way I jumped on that chance!

Ingredients: 
1 cup of Almond Flour
1/2 cup of Oat Flour
1/2 cup of Protein Powder (I used bone broth protein from Dr. Axe)
1 tsp of Baking Powder
1 tsp of Baking Soda
2 eggs
2 tbsp of Honey
2 tbsp of melted Coconut Oil
1/4 cup of almond milk (I used chocolate)

Directions:
1. Mix up all of the ingredients listed above and stir well. 
2. Grease your donut pan and make sure you do this step well because they will stick
3. Put the batter into a baggy and then cut a hole in one corner so that you can easily pour it into the pan
4. Bake at 325 for 10-15 minutes depending on how thick you made them

We topped ours with honey-butter that we made but taking butter and mixing honey into it... super simple! They turned out great! They taste delicious! However, don't think you're going to be done and pull a Krispy Kreme out of the oven because they do taste healthy! I just want to make sure you have the right expectations ;)

Well, I hope y'all have a wonderful Friday and a great weekend! We have a friend coming to town so we have a packed full time ahead and I can't wait :)

Love, Lindsey

Favorite off the shoulder top & local winery

Happy Monday! I am so happy for today just because it means I can get stuff done, is that weird? Monday's are normally the day I run all my errands, work, and meet up with a friend. Did you all have a great Mother's Day weekend? Ours was so busy but we had a wonderful time celebrating our awesome moms!

On Friday, Mathew and I took some time to go relax at the local winery called Mitas Hill. We have been here a couple of times and love it! You can't beat the atmosphere which is so beautiful as you can see from the pictures! Mathew and I usually just get one of the tastings that are $10 and you can choose four of their wines to try out. As for their wine, if you're a wine lover like me just make sure you go into it remembering that it is Texas made wine! They actually grow all of the grapes right there on the land which is awesome! If you compare this wine to your favorite California wine you may not love it as much but Texas wines are much much different than your everyday California Cab or whatever you normally drink! My favorite one that they do is the Cabernet Sauvignon that is smooth and bold! The winery also makes pizza and they are delicious! They even have gluten free options!

As for my outfit, I have shown y'all this top in the past but I just love how simple and easy it is to throw on! I paired it with my favorite Banana Republic shorts and some super fun sandals I grabbed at Target! These sandals look just like the Sam Edelman ones except they are literally a third of the price! Everything is linked below if you want to shop :)

IFly Dallas

Happy Friday! I could not be more ready for some downtime this weekend.... it has been a long week. I wanted to share with y'all today our experience at IFly Dallas!

IFly is an indoor skydiving experience! There are many locations but the one we went to is the one in Frisco, TX. I was super nervous at first to try this out because it looked pretty intimidating! I had never done anything like it! When you get there you sign in, attend a short "class" and then get started! You will typically be with about 8 other people so you will take turns going into the wind tunnel. We had two different two minute flying times so we got to fly for around four minutes. Once you get into the tunnel the instructor will help you balance and direct you to move in certain ways so that you can be in control. We had a great instructor and I was able to pick it up pretty quickly! It was so fun and I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a new experience to try out! It was scary going in the first time but once you did it you wanted to keep going back in! I already want to go back again!

Well, I am off to finish work and then spend the day getting stuff ready for Mother's Day and the weekend! I hope you all have a great weekend!

Love, Lindsey

Everyday casual that you probably have!

Happy Wednesday! I know I didn't get a post done on Monday we have had a lot of stuff going on right now and I didn't want to just throw something up there. Today I am sharing with y'all a fun everyday casual outfit that you probably already have in your closet. I threw this one together just to go out and run errands! If you don't have high waisted shorts then you can also just use your favorite denim shorts and your favorite black tee! Both of these are super basic but all together look great! I then grabbed my new Kendra Scott necklace and the black pair of my Coach loafers and went to town, literally! 

I am not always a huge fan of high waisted shorts but I actually found this pair on sale at Nordstrom a couple of years ago and they are super comfortable. I will try and find them or a very similar pair and link them below! This tee is from H&M and is like $9 or something super great! I have this shirt in like 5 colors and love them! The bracelets I am wearing my dad actually picked me up out of the country so sadly I can't exactly link those but if I see something that looks close I will link those! As for the Kendra necklace, I actually went and made it at the color bar just last week! I love having a silver one now because I have only had the gold for so long!

Anyway, I am off to get some work done and run a million errands! Have a blessed day and remember that you can choose to have a great day no matter what is going on in your life if you just change your attitude!

Love, Lindsey
