March 2017 Favorites

It’s time for March favorites! This month has flown by and there are several things I have been loving recently. I don’t have all of these items photographed because some of them are not objects, but let me tell you about them anyway.

Trader Joe’s Plantain Chips

I recently discovered these chips at Trader Joe’s and I have had them with multiple things like almond butter, sunflower butter, guac, salsa, etc. Plantain chips aren’t very sweet but they’re not overly salty or savory–so they’re the perfect balance.

Trader Joe’s Sunflower Butter

I also tried sunflower butter recently and it’s soooo good! I’ve always been a fan of sunflower seeds so having it in a creamy, buttery form is divine. I was looking for a cheaper alternative to almond butter and this definitely worked.

Amazon Prime Music Player

There was an article in my local news paper a few weeks ago about all the things you’re not utilizing properly with your Amazon Prime benefits–the music player being one of them. I didn’t know there was such a thing but I have been using it ever since. You can download music that’s listed on Prime and play it without using any data. This is very similar to Spotify and there are no commercials. I’ve really liked having some new songs available that I didn’t have to purchase.

Testify by Needtobreathe

I have had this song on repeat basically all month. I liked this song a while back but recently it just seems to have the perfect words:

Give me your heart give me your song
Sing it with all your might
Come to the fountain and
You can be satisfied
There is a peace, there is a love
You can get lost inside
Come to the fountain and
Let me hear you testify

Fresh Exchange Blog

I came across the Fresh Exchange Blog earlier this month and it is #bloggoals. The blog is crisp and covers all kinds of things like travel, capsule wardrobes, food, etc. Go check out this blog!

Kogmo Military Jacket

If you follow me on Instagram you would have probably seen this picture below. I recently found the PERFECT army green jacket and I found it on Amazon for under $30. Don’t you love Amazon?? I’ve worn it a lot lately and I can definitely see myself taking it on a few trips later this year. This jacket has the right amount of pockets, ties, and gold hardware. I’ll link the jacket here if you’re interested in buying one for yourself.


Interval Running

I heard someone talk about speed running/interval running the other day and I gave it a try. I’ve been in a little bit of a running rut and can’t seem to get myself back into a routine so I thought a running challenge might help. While there are different intervals you can try, I tried the 7654321 method. You run for 7 minutes and walk for 1 minute, run for 6 minutes and walk for 1 minute, and etc. Once I got over the 7 and 6 minute intervals it felt like smooth sailing. I’m looking forward to trying this out again and hopefully it’ll help me get back on track.

That’s all of my favorites for this month! What are some things you have been loving in March?

  1. Since we don’t talk much face to face I always enjoy reading your blog to see what’s going through your mind. You are right on with the interval training. It’s something new and challenging and it will give you almost instantaneous results. Keep at it even if only for a few minutes. I love you so much. Papa
