Friday Favorites – 5/4/18 – Give me all the Poke Bowls

This post may contain affiliate links, please see my disclosure here.  Thank you for your support!

Happy, happy Friday! How was your week? It was a pretty good one over here. We had more packed in than I had initially planned, but if we are being honest, that’s kind of my style. So while busy, I feel like it was a super productive work week.  The babies and I got some good park time and fun hangout time in, and I got some pretty good workouts in.

Being that it is Friday, I am in the mood to talk Favorites, so let’s get started!

First up, homemade poke bowls. I used tofu for these because it was convenient for my meal prep, they were so good! I had one for dinner Monday and then for lunch Tuesday and Wednesday, and was honestly pretty bummed that there wasn’t more for lunch Thursday. They will definitely be a regular in the summer rotation. Let me know if you would like me to share how I make them.

Tuesday night I had an evening meeting at the gym I teach at, and was able to squeeze in a little dinner date beforehand with a good friend and her super adorable baby. We went to Beyond Bread, which is always a favorite, though it had been a while since I had been there. Turns out they came out with some new sandwiches while I was away. This masterpiece below is Tito’s Torta and has ham, bacon, provolone, avocado and a jalapeño spread. Something totally different than the salad I usually get, but also totally delicious.

As I mentioned earlier, it was also a pretty good workout week. I managed to make it to Orangetheory twice (and resolve my heart rate monitor issues, yeah). Last night, I also hit up a yoga class, which was exactly what I needed after a couple of days of heavy strength and cardio workouts. I was also able to get in plenty of walks in the beautiful spring weather we have been having. Sadly, my allergies have not been loving the weather, but it’s just to nice out to not be outside as much as possible.

In the blog world this week:

I stumbled across a gallery photo wall post with templates and measurements that I am pretty excited about. Decorating is not a strength of mine (I tend to be pretty minimalist and will leave walls empty for ages), but I really want to figure out a nice display of baby pictures. I’m thinking this will help me a lot.

How cute are these DIY succulent soaps from Pretty Simple Ideas?

These Amish sugar cookies sound so good, and I am pretty sure I have all the ingredients on hand, so they maybe happening this weekend.

I am forever on the hunt for new workout music, so I was pretty excited to see this new playlist Gina shared.

So friends, what are you loving this week?  Poke bowls yeah or nah?  Any great workout songs to share?

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  1. The sandwich from Beyond Bread sounds so tasty! I’m glad your heart rate monitor issue has been fixed Emily.

    I’m not a poke fan since I don’t like fish. I could definitely see myself enjoying it without anything like that on it. Have a great Friday!

    1. Thanks! I am so glad to be able to see how hard I am working again, it was a really good sandwich. Hope you have a great day too!

  2. All your pictures are seriously giving me food envy! Poke bowls are so delicious – your homemade ones look great! Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Not a huge fan of poke but the sandwich looked incredible. Finally quit raining so I see several walks in my future.

  4. Sounds like a fun week – and I’m glad your workouts were all good. I made it to the gym once so far, but I have dance tonight and then gym tomorrow morning so I’m getting some sort of routine going. My allergies are driving me nuts too though!!


    1. They are kind of pricey. If you find a new studio getting ready to open, you can get a bit of a discount though.
