Well Bloggies happy SATURDAY! It is one rainy, gloomy day here in Boston. It is easy to get down in the dumps on these gloomy days, but like I had said before, despite the weather I try to stay positive and upbeat and don't let the weather get to me so much! AND its a great day for blogging with a delicious cappucino under a cozy blanket (which I may or may not be doing right this moment)
I will start off with a LONG overdue product review. I received these Dr. Krackers before my trip and snapped shots, as well as tried them, but I didn't have time to post it, so here it is
A little history:
Inspired by the delicious traditional flatbreads of Germany, our Dr. Kracker crackers are made with a blend of nature's best organic whole grains and seeds, then yeast-raised and artisan-baked to perfect crispness.
Our Flatbreads and Snacker Krackers are 100% percent natural, and USDA certified organic. We bake with whole grains and seeds, and none of our crackers contain trans fats. From Pumpkin Cheddar to Seedlander, there's a seriously delicious Dr. Kracker for everyone in your family.
- Apple Crisps
- Hummus Maximus
- Klassic 3 seed
- Cherry Semolina
- Pumpkin Chedder
- SUnflower Chedder
- Seeded Spelt
- Fire Roasted crisps
First up-The seedlander Krackers
Ingredients: organic whole grain spelt flour, organic pumpkin seeds, organic millet, organic agave syrup, organic sesame seeds, organic spelt bran, organic molasses, organic flaxseeds, organic poppy seeds, yeast, sea salt, organic barley malt syrup
Large seeds including poppy, sunflower, pumpkin and sesame
Paired with some delicious gouda cheese.
I LOVED these crackers. They were so nutty and noticibly thicker than your average cracker. They didn't break apart like others and held their shape well! I also loved these because they were not salty 1 bit. It frustrates me when crackers are too salty, and these were perfect. I loved the texture of all the different seeds on the crunchy craker itself. 8.5/10
Thursday night I decided to make homemade greek yogurt inspired by Tay.
I purchased some plain yogurt a la Stonyfield
I put in in a colainder which was lined with paper towel
let it sit for 24 hours and VOILA!
It didn't taste exactly like Chobani or Fage, but it became noticeably thicker and creamier!
This was all the liquid (whey) that was strained out.
Friday started off with an awesome spin class at 9:00am before I had work at 11:30. It as amazing. I am seriously in love with the instructor. As a spinning instructor myself, she is my role model. She has amazing energy and such motivation as she teaches. Not to mention her music is awesome!
I made this smoothie after class and drank it on my way to work
Scoop of this
This (plus some almond milk and skim milk. Delicious, cool and refreshing
I didn't snap a picture of my lunch because it was the same old boring wrap and salad that I normally eat.
But I was so excited to munch on this beauty! One reason I DO love the winter!
He was happy it was Friday, like me!
I also broke into these. Kay's Natural Butter Twists
Golden, buttery and delicious! I loved the little pretzel's. They were the perfect size to throw on this
Chobani plain yog, 1/3 C pumpkin and pumpin pie spice= pumpkin yog with golden buttery twists
Later on I munched on these
Yes, this is hummus...But it is not any hummus
Dessert Hummus- PEANUT BUTTER HUMMUS
I got two free container samples of this hummus at the Boston Vegetarian food festival, I chose the PB and maple walnut flavors. The ingredients are all natural and include chickpeas, evaporate cane juice, peanut butter, safflower oil, peanut butter extract.
It was delicious. Smooth and creamy. It didn't taste like PB you would eat out of the jar but there was certainly a PB flavor in there! I was thinking of all the concoctions I could use this hummus with in my head!
This morning I woke up and made a great bowl of oats!
with 1/2 banana, blueberries, strawberries, water and walnuts
Cafe Britt French Pressed coffee with skim
Jason made his famous Belgium waffle with syrup, strawberries and whipped cream
Jason and I always tend to eat different things, especially for breakfast!
Do you and your significant other, or parents (if you live with them) eat different things when you prepare meals? Do you Think you have motivated your significant other or parents to eat healthier?
