Mango Berry Shake

Mango Berry Shake

Hello! I’m finally, FINALLY done with traveling until later on this summer- after 3 straight weekends of travel I am so happy to finally be able to stick around at home for a little bit. That is, until I head to Montreal in about a month, and of course my honeymoon in a few months… ahh, who am I kidding! I love traveling!

This past weekend I had the most incredible opportunity to hang out at the BlogHer Food ’13 conference in Austin, TX. I was there to speak at my very own workshop, Blog on the Run, about the different kinds of apps food bloggers can use to maintain their blog and workflow on the go. It was a thrilling (and just a little bit nervewracking) experience and I literally cannot wait until next year’s conference. I was able to meet so many amazing bloggers and network with a ton of great folks.

One of the funniest things to happen during my workshop was when my dad texted me during the brief point where I actually had my phone hooked up to the projector. He said something like “How’s it going with your workshop?” I was so embarrassed until everyone started laughing- it ended up being pretty cute. It was only after that I realized my “Do Not Disturb” function on my phone was not enabled… whoops!

So after 3 straight weekends of basically being on vacation, I need a little break from overindulgence. While I love treating myself when I’m away, I always come back feeling like I need to cut back and get back on track with my nutrition. Since I have a lot of exciting wedding related things coming up, including my first dress fitting (!!!) and our engagement photos, I want to make sure I’m in the best shape I can be in.

Enter my long time favorite for breakfast- the smoothie! I know, it’s not Smoothie Sunday, but I wanted to share with you a new concoction I made with fresh mangos that my future mother-in-law gave me on Sunday night. Combined with frozen berries and a little liquid of your choice, this makes for a perfectly nutritious yet sweet breakfast.

    Mallory! I can’t believe you didn’t say anything in Austin about being engaged! How exciting.

    You really did do a great job in your session, and the text from your dad ties for my favorite part with the instagram picture of you presenting that came up while you were still presenting. Meta! Post-conference, I totally know how you feel with needing to get back to healthy eating – I’ve got a lot of salads on tap for this week!
