A few things I’m loving

There are a few things that are rocking my world right now, so much so that I feel the need to share.

First and foremost, I want to talk to you about my Buca Boot .

This thing is kind of incredible. It’s super functional and SAVES my back from breaking under the weight of my food, computer, books, and notebooks while I bike (I work 12 hour days, I basically commute with my entire life at my beck and call). Plus- let’s be honest- that lil buddy is cute as eff. There has been a fairly gigantic uptick in my bike commuting lately (#homeownership = I live pretty dang far off the beaten path ) and I am SO grateful the Buca Boot helps keep it chill.

Next on the roster of shit to love, is FitQuick.Things I've been loving lately- Super Strength Health 3

You know what I’m stoked on? People that put their time and energy into making things that they want to see in the world. That’s what I do with Super Strength Health, and that’s what my friend Holly is doing with FitQuick.

Basically, this is a protein waffle mix. The ingredients include garbanzo bean flour, rice protein powder, vanilla, and not much else. They are vegan, because that’s how Holly roles. They are gluten-free. The taste AWESOME, without any toppings at all, and even better when you add a little banana soft serve, fresh picked strawberries, and peanut butter to jazz them up. My waffle was so appealing that I couldn’t wait to take a bite, as you may have noticed. These jazzed up my breakfast routine as it got a little colder and frozen smoothies seemed just a little less rad.

Lastly, I want to give a shout out to my running shoe, the Mizuna Wave Rider 17.

Things I've been loving lately- Super Strength Health 2


These shoes have made running about a million times more enjoyable for me.

I’m gonna be honest here, aesthetically, they aren’t exactly my favorite. I will happily wear the free pink fitness stuff that is tossed my way, but I actually paid for these and the cabbage-patch-kid-esque accents are not my favorite. (I can see from the web link that other colors are available, and I am kicking myself slightly for buying them IRL, where there were limited options.) BUT, holy hell are these comfortable. They are light weight, vegan, super supportive, and cushioned in all the right places. My running has gone from about 3 miles a week to about 12 miles a week in the past couple of months, and I don’t think I could have done it without the help of these shoes.

What are you guys loving lately?
