Today was a great day. (quickie post)

30 05 2009

Haha, just putting that out there. 😉 It really was a good day.

(This is going to be a relatively short post due to the fact that’s it’s past ten and I have majjooorrrr commenting and catching up to do! I know I said I was gonna comment earlier today–And I’m so sorry. Life happened.)

It started with a trip to the grocery store (after a bowl of oats, of course!) I got some awesome new foods, and I cannot wait to try them! I have lots of meals in mind. YUM! Here’s the “rough” list 🙂

  • Produce: Organic Gala/Fuji apples, bananas, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, avocados, lettuce (I want to say Romaine?), and baby spinach
  • Freezer/Fridge: Kashi GoLean Blueberry Waffles, Gingersnap Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream, FiberOne yogurt, Oikos Blueberry Yogurt (on sale for a dollar!!), and Chobani Blueberry Yogurt
  • Cabinet: 2 jars of Skippy Super Chunk Peanut butter, whole wheat pitas, whole grain naan (gonna make pizzas), and Ezekial 4:9 pasta (!!!)
  • Bars: Cliff Peanut Toffee Buzz, Chocolate Brownie PureBar, and CherryCashew PureBar (gotta love buy one get one free)

I am very excited about this week’s haul. I’ve already tried and loved many of these foods, and cannot wait to have more. YUM! This week’s going to be mighty tasty.

Lunch (which I took lots of pics of!) : Now THIS was an amazing meal. I made a serving of Ezekial 4:9 sprouted grain pasta and topped it with a grilled chicken breast, green pepper and mushroom red sauce, parm cheese, and spinach. About an hour later I had a Fuji because I love apples ❤ This lunch was THE BOMB! This pasta is very, very healthy and yummy. 100_4138

hi cutie!
Your grocery haul sounds amazing! Sounds like you got some very delicious finds. Oh and I’m so glad you had a nice workout. I love going on a nice long walk…I always feel so amazing afterwards!

Okay so those oats look absolutely amazing! You have just absolutely convinced me that if I can’t physically find Mighty Maple, I have have have to order it. It just sounds too good not to try! And yumm that pasta lunch looks so fresh and tasty!
p.s. I’ve never tried Peanut Toffee Buzz but I’m thinking it’s a must!
