Fashion (And Falafel) Friday

11 Mar

TGIF, y’all!

Before I get to my traditional Fashion Friday post, I want to talk falafel.

I’ve admitted my love for falafel on more than one occasion. How can you not like deep-fried chick peas? It’s impossible, I tell ya! But since I’m on this diet and all, I figured falafel would be out of my life for a while. Not true, my friends, not true. I have discovered oven-baked falafel.

Pan fry is for about two minutes on each side:

Then throw the pan in the oven on 400* for about 10 minutes. All together in a pita stuffed with spinach, sprouts, feta and hummus:

While it wasn’t as good as deep-fried falafel, it definitely did the trick.  And y’know, since it’s Friday, I decided I should stop by Starbucks on the way to work:

Skinny Caramel Macchiato, how I’ve missed thee.

Remember how I said I wasn’t that sore from Ab Ripper X?  Well, I lied.  It was that sneaky soreness that shows up gradually the next day.  By the end of yesterday, my back and obliques were killing me.  I could barely move!  I did have a moment of sheer genius when I decided to foam roll my lower back.  Best. Idea. Ever. It immediately relieved the vast majority of the pain.

Alrighty, on to the FASHION!  I know I’m a little late on the whole Oscars-thing, but can I just say that I absolutely love Rachel McAdams’ look?

That woman is gorgeous!  And her every day look is pretty great too:

I’m very much a jeans, t-shirt and cardigan kinda girl, so her style suits my tastes.

What Oscar looks were your favorite?

    lol I’m sorry you could barely move after Ab Ripper. It definitely does get easiER. but never easy.
    I didn’t watch the Oscars but I’ve always thought Rachel McAdams is gorgeous. I love her dress too.
    Good luck at the River Run tomorrow!! 🙂
