ENTER MY BIRTHDAY CHOBANI GREEK YOGURT GIVEAWAY3/1-3/8: https://livelifeeatright.wordpress.com/chobani-give-away/
I have to start my birthday blog with a big THANK YOU to my parents. I don’t know what I would do without you and I am so lucky to have your love and support in my life. Today is not only a day to celebrate my life, but also to celebrate your commitment as parents and the impact you have had to make me the person that I am today. I love you more than words can say!
Okay, mushiness aside, I love birthdays! I always make it a point to do things that make me feel good, and surround myself with family and friends. Because I am a student, taking a day off from classes is out of the question, so there will be no pedicures or Vinyasa yoga class today but there will be lots of good food and pampering!! I’m starting my day off today with a little relaxation: a 20 minute yoga video and this amazing breakfast!
Naturally, I had to make my parfait in a wine glass to add an extra element of luxury. I also had bold DECAF (still going without caffeine for Lent) coffee in my favorite New York Wine and Culinary Mug. The mix: 1 cup Chobani Plain Greek Yogurt, ½ frozen banana, 3 frozen strawberries, handful frozen raspberries, blueberries, cinnamon and ¼ cup Fruit and Nut granola. I made it a point to buy my favorite granola, BearNaked Fruit and Nut, this weekend plotting a birthday of good eats. This breakfast reminds me of sweet summer time. It is so hearty, elegant and refreshing.
The rest of my day includes class:(, RUNNING (hopefully 4 miles for my birthday!), lunch date with my best friend, cocktails and dinner with the girls at one of my favorite restaurants! There will be pizza, sushi, chocolate and a whole lot of love. I’ll be sure to post the happenings of my birthday later!!
What is your favorite way to celebrate your birthday?
