Happy National Donut Day!!!!
You’re probably asking yourself why this isn’t a donut recipe post and I FEEL YOU. I planned on sharing a much different variety of content with you this week but alas, the broken elbow strikes again.😑
Instead, I’m bringing you some veryyyyy exciting news…DONUT MERCH IS HERE! Yep, that’s right, I made friggin’ t-shirts and hats with donuts on them (mostly because I personally wanted some but then figured hey, maybe you would, too!)😁
You can find DFD t’s, both regular and cropped, and a super cute dad hat over on my Etsy site! If there’s something else you’d like to see/buy, just let me know in the comments and I’ll see what I can do! This is definitely just the beginning, so more options (like hoodies & phone cases) will be coming soon, for sure.
And now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, let’s jump into May favorites!!!
Coconut Wraps: Not gonna lie, at first I was skeptical about these but they’re so yummy and an awesome alternative to wheat wraps or tortillas!! They don’t break like tortillas either (y’know when they rip and everything falls out? The worst. These don’t!) and I love putting a little avo + hummus in ’em with turkey or veggies. I bet they’d be amazing with nut butter and banana too for a sweet snack!
SmartSweets: GUYS. To say these are my newest obsession are an understatement. Alex keeps wanting some too and I’m having a hard time sharing…😅 The whole bag is only 90 calories (and that are a lot in there!), they have fiber, and zero sugar alcohols which can give me a stomach ache. They come in fruity and sour and they’re so perfect for dessert. If you live in the US and want to order, you can get free shipping with my code ‘dancing.for.donuts’ !!
Blender Bombs: So you know how sometimes when you make smoothies you’ve got like 22 bags of seeds and protein powders and superfoods and it gets overwhelming? Blender Bombs solve that problem and it is AWESOME. They’ve got all kinds of goods in them like bee pollen, chia seeds and walnuts, but then they also make more specific flavored ones like Aloe + Collagen (what I have!) and Goji + Coconut + Acai!
Better Almond Butter: If you are an almond butter fanatic like me, you HAVE to try this stuff guys. The texture is out of control perfect and the flavor is even better. It’s made from sprouted almonds too (which are easier to digest!) so it’s better than you’re average store-bought stuff if ya know what I’m sayin’. Highly recommend!
Ellie’s Nut Milk Bag: You’ve seen me use this before (when I made my Lavender Vanilla Almond Milk!), but this bag has seriously changed the game for me. They send you a brochure with recipes and everything you need to get started making your own nut (r oat!) milk, as well as cold brew! I love having fresh nut milk on hand since I know exactly what’s in it, plus you get the nut pulp afterwards too, which is great for adding to smoothies or oats for extra protein! If you’re interested in making your own non-dairy milk at home, this (and a blender) are pretty much all you need!
Beyond Yoga Leggings: Ok y’all, I have tried about 67 different brands of workout pants and I can officially say I have zero interest in wearing anything other than Beyond Yoga. They’re the softest, most comfortable and flattering pants I’ve ever worn and you can get some seriously incredible deals when they go on sale (that’s when I got them!). They have a zillion gorgeous colors and they’re perfect for everything from running to yoga to sittin’ on your couch watchin’ Netflix.
Outdoor Voices Crop Bra: So you need a good sports bra to go with your perfectly-fitting yoga pants and OV is the move. I can’t say enough positive things about this bra – it’s high-neck so the girls won’t fall out in down dog or bounce on the elliptical, thick enough to hide when you’re cold, but thin enough to breathe. I can promise you I will be ordering this in at least 2 more colors😅
Sudio Headphones: When I tell you that I’ve been looking for a good pair of gym headphones for years now, I am not exaggerating. Like does anyone have weird a$$ ears that like, nothing stays in or is that just me? Either way, these Sudio Tre headphones do not move, plus they send you different sized wings which is amaaazing!! I love hat they’re bluetooth powered too ’cause that means I can do things like lift weights without taking my music out! I’ve got a 15% off code for this one too guys! It’s DANCINGFORDONUTS (and I can promise you I don’t make commission on it, they were just nice enough to give me a code for y’all!
ECM Planner: This one is so much more than fitness related – it’s literally my favorite thing from this month for life in general. Aim + Glow sent me their Enthusiastic Change Maker planner after seeing some posts on Instagram that clearly show I’m at sort of an interesting crossroads in life, and this planner is just what I needed. It allows you to write down your current story, your desired story, some tools you have in your arsenal to help you get there, journal space AND a ton of room for you to write down your goals in various aspects of your life each week. I’ve never seen anything like t in my life and it makes me so happy/motivated!
Okay y’all, that about does it for today!! Thanks for stopping by and go treat yourself to a donut today!!!!
