It’s Good to be Back

18 09 2009

I am SO glad I’m not sick anymore!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ugh, it was absolutely miserable. But enough about that depressing stuff!

I’m sure y’all are very interested in what I ate while “under the weather.” Not a whole lot of variety, but honestly, I was just so sick I didn’t want to think about “getting my greens in” and making sure I have had what my body needs. So here are the common reoccurring foods that made it into my mouth several times while sick!

1. Organic or All Natural Ice cream! Perfect for a screaming throat…100_6960 100_6962



2. Applesauce was my life ❤ 100_7030 3. Fiberone Apple Cinnamon Muffins…are the bomb! So good! 100_6988 100_6989 4. Soup—Homemade Broccoli Cheese to be exact 100_6985 100_6987 5. Starbucks. Nuff’ said. 100_7005 100_7006 6. Tea—including green and organic chai (mostly the latter) 100_6995 7. Orange Juice, but mostly Grape Juice 100_7020 100_7021 100_7022 100_7023

And here are the foods I ate when I started to feel better…100_6975



Yup, that’s banana soft serve. Yum 😀 100_6978 100_6980 These bars (above) are fantastic!!


100_7009Vanilla Oikos with raspberries and dark chocolate chips ~YUM~ 





These shells are fantastic! I HIGHLY suggest them. Can’t wait to try more Annie’s products!! 100_7026





After asking for some samples, Amazing Grass ever-so-kindly sent me some Amazing Grass products! After seeing them all over the blogsphere, I was dying to try them! THANK YOU Teri!! Here’s what I got. Am I the only one who hasn’t heard of the PB/Berry bar? So exciting!

100_7033 100_7035 100_7036 I can’t wait to use the shaker cup!! 100_7037I got 2 of everything!  100_7038 100_7039

REVIEWS TO COME!! I’m so excited. BUT…

I need your help! What are your favorite GM smoothies to make with Amazing Grass? And what do you think of the bars? Thanks guys, y’all are the best!!

Today I tried a fabulous new bar (for me!). The lemon larabar and I think I’ve found my new favorite. I just love lemon flavored things! Lemon bars are a secret love of mine, too 🙂 It was fantastic! If you like lemon flavored foods, try it!! 100_7059 This mornings Greek Yogurt mess had the following:

  • Strawberry Oikos
  • Total Blueberry Pomegranate Cereal
  • Total Cinnamon Crunch Cereal
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Banana

= Delicious! 100_7060  100_7061


And no, I have not forgotten about POM iced coffee! Review to come on that too! 🙂

Verse of the Day: (found here) Psalm 23:4

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

Gotta run ladies!! Another busy day tomorrow—boyfriend’s coming over! Haven’t seen him (other than school) in over a week. He was super sweet while I was sick and kept me up to date in school by giving all my work and writing down the hw, etc. I credit him for me not being behind!! 🙂

Have a fabulous Friday!!!

Girl, you and I have SUCH similar tastes. I eat those exact things when I have the flu… haha, serioulsy last Spring I had a TERRIBLE flu for over a week and lived on applesauce, grapejuice, ice cream, and crackers. 😉

SO jealous of the amazing grass products. I’ve tried all of the superfoods, but never got a chance to try the Amazing Meal. Can’t wait to hear what you think of it! If you want ideas for smoothies, check out some of the recipes of my blog… I’ve made a ton with the Superfood.

Glad you’re feeling better and keep up that positive attitude sweetie!

ooooo Can’t wait for the reviews! I’ve seen many people get samples… (man, can’t somebody hook me up? :P)

Thanks for the shot by shot report of the goods… the food looks good!

I love applesauce too! With a pinch of cinnamon, it’s just a bit of heaven 😀

And I WANT A STARBUCKS HERE TOO! The UN should write a resolution to make sure that every citizen of the world has a starbucks with in 2 miles of where they live – anything other than that is a cruel and unusual punishment 😛

Yay I’m glad you’re feeling better!! The eats look delicious… as usual!

SO glad you are feeling better! And love the ice cream shots! Hehe… Were the Fibre 1 muffins made from a mix? They look great.

AG- I have never tried but would use vanilla soy and banana I think 🙂
