Some goodies. We have some Larabars, Amazing Grass Bars, Luna Bars and Kashi Granola bars
I have the largest bar stash right now and LOVE it! one of my dad's friends and his son are staying in our house while we are gone and I hope they don't break into my stash!
This is my Mom and Dad's Breakfast (they each have one) Arnold thin with eggwhite and avocado spread.
Ok back to the start of the day! My day started at 5am! The time really does fly by when I have the opening shift. I will look up at the clock and it will already be 6:30 when I feel like I have been there fore 3 minutes. I really do prefer the early morning shift rather than the closing! At 6:30 I hit the treadmill for a 4.5 mile run. I am so loving my early morning runs. They put me in the best mood and I just feel so refreshed and ready for the day! After my run I did some core work (Bosu Crunches, leg lifts, Ball roll outs, Pike on the stability ball) no weights today as I am still sore from my workout with my trainer!
For breakfast I busted out the Crazy Richards PB . I acutally got 2 jars a while back and just haven't used them yet because I had to get rid of some other PB's I had and I don't like to waste!
Crazy Richards Chunky PB
Crazy Richard's Natural Creamy Peanut Butter is made with no salt, sugar, hydrogenated oils or trans fats. Our only ingredient is 100% USA peanuts. After careful roasting we grind select peanuts to create our delicious and natural peanut butter. We then use a special unique grind that gives our peanut butter its creamy, smooth texture. We do this so that the peanut butter can be stored in the refrigerator without becoming too hard to spread.
Summarizing, our peanut butter is special because of the quality of the peanuts we use, our time-honored roasting process and our unique grinding standards. Finally, it is special because of its sole ingredient - peanuts!
MMMM.... I am a Chunky PB lover, thats for sure!
Close up shot. Sorry about the lighting!
This PB was delicious!! It was not salty at all (duh!, not salt added) and it had the creamiest texture with HUGE chunks of peanuts in there. This made for a delicious bowl of oats
Delicious Empire Apple (from NY!) who knew!
Plain greek yog with dollop of pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice
with some Fiber One and Newmans Own Organic Cinnamon Soy crisps (the last of them, so sad)
I used the Foods Alive Mexican Harvest flax crackers on my salad
These were Delicious! They tasted very 'fiesta-y" lots of coriander, onion, garlic, cumin, cayenne pepper, cilantro. Great crunch to my side salad
I also made a great wrap
Josephs Lavash Wrap, LC wedge, Sabra Hummus, Romaine, tomato, turkey breast-all grilled up
After lunch, I went out to do some errands, pedicure, manicure etc...just some last minute things!
Manicurist in Sevilla by OPI
I decided to use some of this that I got last week and make a pumpkin Delight.
I liked this yogurt, didn't love...it was a bit too sweet and artificial tasting for me, but I did like it and use half the container in my snack. I think I just prefer making my own pumpkin yog using greek yogurt, canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice
I recieved a package from Natures Path the other day and I decided to break into one of the 3 boxes of cereals. I will do a full review when I get back from my trip! but for today, I chose to use the Organic Crunchy Maple Sunrise, which is one of their new gluten free cereals
I loved all the textures in this cereal! There were puffs and flakes and little crispies that came together beautifully in my mouth. (TWSS) It was sweet and had a distinct maple flavor which I really enjoyed! Sometimes cereals say they are 'vanilla' or 'almond' flavored, then you take a bite and although maybe good, it doesn't boast that flavor that it claims it has. Well, this cereal really does have a sweet maple flavor!
Greek yogurt, Crunchy Maple Sunrise , frozen raspberries. THis was the perfect post mani/pedi treat! Loved the coldness of the berries with the sweet taste and crunch of the cereal.
INGREDIENTS: Organic whole grain corn meal, organic evaporated cane juice, organic brown rice flour, organic yellow corn flour, organic inulin, organic quinoa puffs, organic maple syrup, organic flax seeds, natural maple flavor, organic buckwheat flour, organic quinoa, sea salt, organic amaranth, organic molasses, tocopherols (natural vitamin E). Produced in a facility that uses peanuts, tree nuts and soy.
