Hey guys! This is one of my go-to looks for work or any event that requires a more business casual approach.  I wore this exact outfit to a career fair in Philadelphia and I felt confident and comfortable which is most important when trying to sell yourself or your brand.  Pick pieces that flatter your shape and are professional but fashion forward at the same time.

Pumpkin Fest…

Here are some pictures from our trip to NH for the Pumpkin Fest!  I couldn’t believe the thousands of pumpkins all in one place!  It was really cool to walk around and check out everyone’s carved pumpkins and enjoy the beautiful fall weather up north!IMG_1079 IMG_1157 IMG_1174 IMG_1156 IMG_1230 IMG_1145 IMG_1243xo Meg

Date Almond Rolls…

A few months back I had no idea that these tiny treats even existed, and now I eat them all the time!  I randomly stumbled upon them at our local BJ’s wholesale club and figured I would give them a try because they are raw and contain just two ingredients, dates and almonds.  Seriously these things are like miniature candy bars they are sweet but have that crunch from the almonds and are kind of gooey in the middle.  I will eat them mostly by themselves as a little snack two is a serving size and do have a decent amount of calories considering how tiny they are but they are packed with flavor, vitamins, and nutrients.

I just saw an episode of Giada at Home on the Food Network and she made a Banana Walnut Smoothie that looked really good with almond milk, walnuts, and a few other ingredients.  I decided to put my own spin on in and use these little date rolls in place of the walnuts that hers called for.

Recipe

1c Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk

1 Banana

1 Almond Date Roll

3/4c Frozen Mango

3/4c Frozen Pineapple

Total Calories: 296 for entire recipe which is great for breakfast or for a snack you could split the recipe into two servings at 148 calories per serving of course this will vary depending on the brands and size of banana.

I definitely noticed a difference with the dates, they added just a little bit of extra sweetness and combined with the banana gave a perfect creamy texture that was delicious!  I will be making this over and over again this summer it’s so good!
