The Weekender: Feet, Feathers, and Paws

Happy Easter, Smart Cookie lovers! It’s truly starting to feel like spring here in CNY, and I’m in great spirits. Or maybe that’s more due to the good food I had this week rather than the sun. Here’s what you missed:

  1. Bunny Butt Rice Krispie Treats
  2. Baked Eggplant Fries

I’ll also be sharing a few more of my favorite everyday recipes with you guys soon. Coming up next week is this hearty, simple breakfast sandwich:


Plus, I’ve teased you guys enough with pictures of my amazing meatless tacos, so it’s time to share the recipe with you soon!

How are you celebrating the weekend? I started off with a little Easter Bunny fun in my Saturday morning BODYSTEP class. I gave my class some cute bunny ear bracelets as opposed to pumping them with sugar.

Oddly enough, a bunny wasn’t the only animal I’ve dressed up as to teach in these past few weeks. We recently launched the new release of BODYSTEP at my gym, and launches are like a little party for our Fit Family at Powerhouse Gym Utica, so my teammate and I dressed up as flamingos to bring summery cheer. We shook our tail feathers and had a blast!


It must be the spring fever I’m feeling that inspired me to treat myself to some new spring shoes. I got these pretty pastel flats from Payless on sale. Man, I love a good sale.

We’ll close out this Weekender in the best way possible: with one of my gorgeous fur babies. Ladies and gentlemen, behold the majestic Mina.
