Hi everyone and happy Friday 🙂
First I have to say how very much I appreciate all of you amazing, wonderful readers. In fact, I don’t think the term “readers” suffices here anymore, you are all truly great (internet) friends and it really does make me so happy to know you all through this community. Your sweet and encouraging words yesterday brought strength, hope, and happy tears to me…this community really is so wonderful and I can’t thank you enough for your support and touching comments. I really do appreciate it and love you all so very much, thank you ❤
Yipeee for Friday! Is anyone else so happy the weekend is (almost) finally upon us?! I have a lot of things I’ve been loving lately, so without further ado, here are the things I’ve been enjoying this week and am looking forward to…
* Breakfast for dinner
Yesterday I had noticed that we had a couple of eggs that were about to expire, coupled with no meat in the fridge and not wanting to go to the grocery store, I knew what would be on tap for dinner…
To me, there’s nothing more comforting than having eggs and toast (breakfast) for dinner. This was 1 egg with 2 egg whites, scrambled, with 2 pieces of sourdough bread, laughing cow cheese spread, and 3 slices of cajun turkey. I also had an unpictured side salad and a handful of Wheat Thins.
* Kashi Go Lean Crisp – Toasted Berry Crumble
Have any of you tried this cereal…
Love, love it. It has a great berry flavor and a nice airy crispyness to it. I actually find the Kashi Go Lean Crunch to be too crunchy and hard on the teeth, but this has the perfect texture and it’s a lot lighter with big chucks of crispy goodness 🙂
I made another cereal combo bowl this morning a la Courtney (best idea ever, thanks girl!…I’ve seen this on her blog since I started reading years ago and I (finally) decided to make them to have as my pre-workout breakfast and have been enjoying them for the past couple weeks…I love having a combination of cereals together to excite the taste buds ;))
This morning I paired the Kashi Go Lean Crisp with Original Kashi Go Lean…
I’ve expressed before how much I love chia seeds but had forgotten how much I enjoy them in my smoothies…well, this week I brought them back to my post-workout morning breakfast and now I remember why I love them so much…
Look at that thickness! Chia seeds have a way of bulking up your liquids like yogurt, oatmeal, overnight oats, and smoothies. So delicious and gives a great crunch factor too. I know some bloggers sprinkle them on top of smoothies, but this was put into the blender and blended with everything together, and I think that lends to a thicker smoothie…that and xanthan gum, can’t forget about that little gem 🙂
* Holiday Creamers
Every year when fall and winter rolls around I look forward to all the holiday inspired treats that come out…one of which being the limited edition holiday creamers…
Can’t wait to try it tomorrow morning!! And after this, next on my list is the Peppermint White Chocolate that was displayed right next to it…I wanted to buy both but thought I better be good and not get too carried away 😉
Have any of you tried these bars?….
I can’t remember if I’ve admitted this here yet, but I’m horrible at drinking water. Horrible. And I know drinking plain water is best for you, but I think getting water in me no matter what it takes is better than nothing, so I’ve been flavoring my water with this…
MiO! Have any of you heard of or tried this? Todd actually got me onto this and it’s actually really good. What’s neat is instead of the powdered kind like Crystal Light, this is liquid and you just squeeze it into your glass or bottle and you’re good to go! The Mango Peach flavor is (surprisingly) just ok, I thought it would be better, so my fav flavor so far is the Berry Pomegranate.
* Comforting foods
I’ve been enjoying many lately, and I meant to blog about this the other day but forgot…
* My Uncle’s 70th Birthday Party tomorrow
We’ll be in Discovery Bay to celebrate his birthday and the weather looks to be fantastic and sunny…and that means I get to spend quality time with these peeps too…
Hoping this weekend to squeeze in another yogurt trip to U Love…assuming I can convince the hubby 😉
