EXCITING Fab 5 Friday

Hey everyone! I can’t believe that it is already March and that it’s already Friday! Hooray for the weekend!

This week has been great, even though I had to take the ACT on Tuesday and some other tests at school. Why so great, you may ask? Becaaaauuuuse….


I started a club at my high school this week: VEGGIE CLUB! We’re going to meet every Thursday after school in one of the teacher’s rooms. In veggie club, members will learn that plant-based eating can be fun and delicious. The club is for anyone who likes food, especially plants! We’ll share food and recipes, we’ll have potlucks, we’ll go on restaurant outings, and we’ll learn more about healthy and plant-based eating. It’s going to be so much fun and I’m so excited!

The first meeting was yesterday and over 30 people showed up!!! It’s so exciting to see that so many people are interested in healthy eating. I made signs and posted on both Facebook and Instagram to let people know about the club. I also made chocolate cupcakes for the first meeting. They were devoured! I’m just so excited (can you tell?) that I get to help spread healthy eating with this club!

Here is one of the posters I made and hung up around the school!

On Wednesday evening, I posted the above picture of the cupcakes I made for veggie club on Instagram and tagged @chefchloe (Chloe Coscarelli = a.k.a. my role model and one of my favorite vegans ever) and guess what!? She FOLLOWED me on Instagram and reposted the picture!!! I’m not kidding when I tell you that I screamed when I found out.


Nature’s Path Organic also shared one of my Instagram photos which was super awesome! I love Nature’s Path granola!

3. This list of 16 ways to elevate your pb&j from Buzzfeed is great!

I shared it in my peanut butter and jelly french toast post, but it’s so awesome that I wanted to share it with you again. Number 16 makes me laugh. Hopefully the list gives you some fun ideas, or at least makes you smile!

4. These vegan chocolate peanut butter breakfast bars are full of protein and two of my favorite things (chocolate and peanut butter).

They look scrumptious and are definitely going onto my ever-increasing “to make” list!

5. YOUTUBE workout videos

I’m really into doing Youtube workout videos right now. It’s nice to have a personal trainer of sorts (virtually) by your side. They are good encouragement. I am especially loving this workout video (below) from The Balanced Blonde (Jordan Younger). It’s a great 10 minute workout that makes me sweat! It’s nice to have on days when I don’t have time to work out for very long. Another great Youtube workout video is this Blogilates video called — wait for it — “The Bold & the Bootiful.” It is difficult, but it definitely sculpts your booty (lol). My favorite workout channel on Youtube right now is X HIT Daily. They have great ab workout videos. I’m thinking about starting my own fitness section for the blog and making Youtube videos for it. Thoughts?

Question for you: What clubs are/ were you in when you are/ were in high school? Have you ever started a club? I'd love to know!

I hope you have a fun weekend!

xx Ellie

      Thank you SO much! I’ve been meaning to start it for a year and a half and I finally worked up the courage to just go for it! I’m so excited about it! We’ve had 2 meetings so far and 25-30 people showed up to each one. We are going to have a documentary night and have a potluck soon!
