It’s a beautiful Sunday! Here’s what I’m loving this week:

These articles by two amazing bloggers. Both of these are blogs I’ve been reading since I first started blogging and they are written by two incredible women. This week, they tackled the heavy issues of comparing yourself to others and realizing how much you’re worth. I think every single woman out there should read these articles and take a second to remember how amazing they are…just the way they are!

  2. Wow, thank you so much for including me in your post!

    I actually love fruit in nut butters. Archer Farms from target makes this cranberry almond butter that is BEYOND delicious!

  3. Thanks for the link love:-) I love seeing what everyone’s favorites from the week are!

  4. Great list!Microwave Risotto?? I have to check this out. Although I actually enjoy the time it takes to make risotto- this would be awesome in a pinch! Enjoy your Sunday

  5. Yay I am actually making that fruit leather right now! I love these posts!

  6. Great articles at the top for women, completely agree with avoiding comparisons to others. I love fruit leather, (I’m obsessed with Trader Joe’s “Fiber Bits and Pieces” fruit leather) but have never tried to make it myself, pretty excited to give it a try now though!

  7. Thanks for the shout out! I loved the microwave risotto idea too! It totally beats out having to stir like a madwoman in the kitchen.

    I will be looking into the cookies and cream and fruit nut butters. Ingenious.
