wellllllll my phone has been all sorts of messed up lately, so I took it into Apple to get it replaced. Once I got my new phone I couldn’t be happier.. until I realized that all my days pics were on there 😦 so no pics of yesterdays eats. woopsy.
Well for lunch yesterday I made a wrap with my black bean burger, and added tomatoes and spinach and ketchup. YUM! I’ll be eating the last of my burger leftovers today for lunch. phew they made quite a few.
After work I went back home to get din with my mom.
Before we left though I was able to sneak in a 3 mile run! I wasn’t in the mood at all, but I knew today it was going to be rainy and nasty out so I knew I had to get it done. At first my legs felt like lead, they were tired from the 5 mile run the other day and the core fusion dvd last night. About 2 miles into the run they felt 100 times better and got me through the last mile strong and quick. So glad I made myself get out the door and just do it. I feel like thats the hardest part sometimes. I felt great after and then it was off to dinner. I suggested we go to a Cal-Mex place called Frisco Grill by our house. Bleh, bad decision. I didn’t enjoy the place really at all. The food wasn’t hot, it was warm and it’s nothing I couldn’t have made at home. When I looked at the menu I was happy though because I saw that they offered spinach burritos as well as tofu burritos. I decided to try out the tofu one. It was okay, but just bleh. My mom got steak enchiladas and she said they weren’t that good either. Oh well, at least we know now. Maybe they were having an off day? But I’d take chipotle any day over that.
When we got home I found 2 packages… One was a box of bars from Beverly over at The Roman Bar.
Here’s a little background on this yumminess.
The Roman bar was founded by Roman Starno. One day he was in his kitchen and had a bag of fig bars on the counter and wondered what they would taste like with chocolate on them…. well he tried it out, and he loved the taste! After experimenting for 15 years with different flavors, chocolates, and fruit he found the perfect combos and formed a natural vegan cookie/candy bar in a dark semi-sweet, soy based chocolate.
The flavors they offer are chocolate dipped raspberry, chocolate dipped blueberry, and chocolate dipped honey peach apricot.
Here’s the nutritional info.
What first caught my eye was the fact that all 3 bars were different sizes. The raspberry one the biggest, then the honey peach apricot, then the blueberry. So funny 🙂 Beverly was so generous to give me 3 of each of the flavors. My mom and dad instantly called out the flavors they wanted to try. I gave my mom a honey peach apricot and my dad got a blueberry. This only meant one thing… I had to try the raspberry 🙂
I had half of one last night. This was gooooood. Think vegan nutrigrain bar dipped in chocolate. I would definitely eat this as a dessert and not so much a snack. The fruit bar blended perfectly with the chocolate. The chocolate wasn’t too sweet, and had a nice dark rich flavor. This was the perfect flavor combo. I can’t wait to try the other 2 flavors. I can already tell theyre gonna be goood! I’m so happy that I found this company, because I’d never heard of them before and they’ve been around for 15 years! They are sold in some of the best upscale natural food stores in the San Fran bay area, LA, San Diego, Arizona, Oregon, NY, Utah, and Texas. I highly suggest if you live in those areas and see this bar to try it, you won’t be disappointed. If you want to try it but are like me and not near those locations, you can order them online. Thank you Beverly for sending me these 🙂 I have a feeling this box will quickly disappear!
Well this morning I had a bowl of oats, but with a new friend. See that dark nut butter? I’ll post tomorrow what was in my other package I got yesterday… and who that yummy nutter butter is in the middle of my oats. mmm mmm good.
Since this post was pretty empty of pics, I’ll leave you with a few I had on my comp of me and my buddsss. Have a wonderful Friday! The weekend is soo closeeee!
