Hi y’all! It’s been awhile. We’ve been knee deep in our home remodel and well, things are literally a mess. 🙂 I’ve been living in the comfiest clothes that I can actually find as the majority of my wardrobe is tucked away in my office and guest bedroom… both of which are currently being used as our storage rooms until we finish up our kitchen and closet remodel in the next couple of months.
This Alo Yoga Muse sweatpant and hoodie set has been the perfect “work from home” outfit that transitions perfectly into grocery runs, errands and taking Mr. Cupcake for a walk. I also recently joined Club Pilates and I’ve gotten a few compliments on this look. The Alo Yoga Muse set comes in several colors (I want them all!) and the pieces are available separately or as a set. The collection also includes a V-neck top and shorts with the same ribbed fabric and in multiple colors.
Since we haven’t had a working kitchen for several months, let’s just say we have quite the “snack bar” going on. 🙂 We were in a rental with a kitchen for the first month, but back at home for the last two months with only a mini beverage fridge and a tiny dorm size freezer and microwave. We’ve been trying our best to eat as healthily as humanly (and caninely) possible, but all three of us are absolutely thrilled about our appliance installation that is happening as I write this post!
I can’t decide what I want to bake first in my new oven, but it’s a toss up between gluten-free chocolate chip scones and the Caulipower Pizza that has been taking up precious real estate in my mini freezer for the past two months because it’s not suitable for the microwave. 🙂 Mr. Cupcake has been eating the Farmer’s Dog meals for the past two months, but he told me he would really like some baked Ora King Salmon, Japanese Sweet Potatoes and boiled chicken served with steamed broccoli and cauliflower. He’s quite the foodie.
In the meanwhile, I thought I’d share some of our favorite healthy snacks that we’ve been living on in between takeout meals from Flower Child, True Foods Kitchen and Asia Mint.
My Favorite Healthy Snacks + Adaptogens:
Siren Protein and Energy Bites – I’m absolutely addicted to the Cookie Dough flavor made with cashew butter and gluten, soy, grain and dairy free!
Hu Grain Free Cookies and Chocolate – This brand prides itself on producing organic, vegan, paleo, gluten-free, non-GMO and fair trade products. They’re also super delicious!
Lesser Evil Popcorn and Grain-free Treats – I’ve been serving Lesser Evil products in our house for years! I love keeping the smaller packs on hand to grab as an on the go snack or to serve in a bowl in case we get a last minute visitor.
Siete Chips – I love snacking and cooking with this Mexican-American grain free food brand!
Biena Chickpea Snacks and Baked Puffs – Gluten and dairy-free plant based protein.
B.T.R. Nation Bar – B.T.R. stands for bold, tenacious and resilient and is a women owned business with a purpose. Each B.T.R. Nation Bar has 7+ key functional super foods and adaptogens in every bite to help you snack your way to a happy head space.
Base Culture Almond Butter Brownies and Nutty Pumpkin Bread – Gluten, dairy and grain free and super moist and delicious!
Hail Merry’s Mini Miracle Tarts – This is another brand we’ve been consuming for years! The hubby loves snacking on the mini Dark Chocolate, Meyer Lemon and Key Lime tarts and they actually fit in our mini-fridge.
OM Mushroom Superfood and Four Sigmatic Coffees and Hot Chocolate Packs – I love to add these little adaptogen packs to boiling water for a morning or afternoon pick me up, or a late night chill out. I always add a splash of this almond milk.
Soozy’s Grain-Free Muffins and Bagels – No grains, dairy, soy, gmo’s or peanuts… I especially love the Wild Blueberry Muffins.
Mid-Day Squares Chocolate – I’m just gonna warn you ahead of time… these high-protein superfood chocolate squares are highly addictive. They’re also quite filling, so you can easily stop at just one for a satisfying afternoon pick me up.
Love + Chew Superfood Cookies – Simply delicious high-protein, supefood cookies that don’t compromise on taste.
Recess – Sparkling water with mood enhancing magnesium and adaptogens, plus electrolytes for hydration.
AUGA Double Steamed Chickpeas and Lentils – I’ve been adding these organic legumes to take out salads and entrees. Such an easy and delicious way to add fiber to a meal.
He thinks every time I get a snack he should get one too… and he usually does! Mr. Cupcake is a pro at manifesting treats and belly rubs!

Also, can we talk about how cute these personalized mugs are? We both got each other these as surprises from Charlie Cupcake for Xmas last year. I got the hubby’s at Yappy (along with custom made “Charlie Cupcake” wrapping paper) and the Mister ordered mine from Gossby.
