Homemade Pickles from Saucy Spatula:

  • 6 kirby cucumbers, about 2 cups
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cups white vinegar (or apple cider vinegar)
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp Mccormick mixed pickling spice

Direction:

  1. Using a Mandoline Slicer, carefully slice cucumbers.
  2. Place sliced cucumbers into jars, filling almost to the top.
  3. Pour the rest of the ingredients in a small sauce pan, heat on the stove over low heat until sugar and salt has completely melted, then turn off heat immediately. Let vinegar mixture cool completely.
  4. Using a ladle and a funnel (or a ladle with pour spout), fill the jars with the vinegar mixture.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 2 days before serving. Pickles will retain their texture and flavor for up to a couple weeks.

Drink Your Morning Greens
I haven’t been drinking green smoothies quite as often as I would like to since it’s been SO COLD but sometimes when the heat is pumping extra hard in my apartment (and it’s often as I have zero control of the heat) I mix up this super easy smoothie. All you need is a blender and:
2 cups fresh kale
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1.5 cups cold water
4 ice cubes
1 cup frozen mango chunks
1 frozen banana
1 scoop vanilla Perfect Fit Protein 
Blend it up and enjoy cold.

Prone Flutter Kicks

Lie facedown on the bench the long way, so your hip crease is aligned with the end of the bench (A). Hold onto the other end with your arms for stability, and begin pumping your legs up and down in a slow kicking motion (B and C).
