Barney butter was the first thing on my mind this morning. I could not wait to try it. I’ve heard such rave reviews on it, and the lovely Lora got me some and I was beyond happy. I made my regular morning oats but substituted my creamy raw almond butter with a packet of the creamy BB. i LOVED IT!!! They have distinctly different tastes, but it was amazing. BB has a much more pb consistency than the raw almond butter. These packets are going to go by fast!! I like the roasted flavor it gave to my bowl and can’t wait to use it again tomorrow 🙂 Thanks Lo!! You are amazing!
And then to continue the day with amazing eats, I had some plain ff yogurt with half of a maple almond crunch granola plank! This is my first time trying anything from Honest Foods and it was far beyond what I had expected. This morning, from both the oats and the snack, I was completely satisfied. Usually i’m so hungry and end up eating my snacks that are meant for later in the day, much earlier because I am just not completely satisified. This was not the case this morning, and i loved every second of it! Now i’m even more excited to get the Honest Food bars from Angela at OhSheGlows! I can’t wait to try more flavors.
Lunch break was spent in Group Power. This class burrnnnss and i love it. I like pairing it up with a yoga session later on in the day to help stretch out the muscles that got really tight during the class. I can’t wait until I finally decide on a HRM to see how many cals are burned in this weight training class.
I woke up a little late today, so it was one of two decisions. Make oats and try out the BB, or make a quick breakfast so I have time to pack a lunch as well. Obviously BB was higher up on the list! So for lunch today I went to a little cafe right down the street from work. It’s called Teavolve, and has a ton of specialy teas. But their sandwiches are sooo good and fresh. They use locally grown food, and I am so in love with their Grilled Eggplant Panini. It’s grilled zucchini, roasted red peppers, marinated artichoke hearts, and tomato/garlic pesto. They grill it on a huge foreman like grill and use cooking spray so its not greasy at all. It is the best panini. They usually come with sun chips but they let me sub a side salad for it. This lunch is always such a treat.
I’m baking some more yoga cookies tonight to bring to my sister tomorrow night. I’m going to switch out the raisins for some craisins. I can’t believe tomorrow night I leave for VT. I’ve got to bring some snacks along with me for the trip. I’m thinking of bringing some instand oatmeal packets, and some BB packets for breakfast options when the only other option I have is a biscuit breakfast sandwich. Oh, and my sister is bringing her laptop so i’ll be able to keep up with all of you and get some good posts in!
I also bought a spaghetti squash last night. Any recipe ideas? i have never tried it before, so I’m excited, but don’t know what else to do with it other than put some pasta sauce on it? Thanks guys!!
