Today started out on the right foot. Figuratively and literally…cuz I went on a run immediately after waking up tee hee I did the Galloway method of 4 min run 2 min walk 5 times and then busted out a 10 min. run at the end.
Run=30 min. Walk=25 min. with warm up and cool down Shins=in lots of pain
I’ve been taking it so slowly and they are not showing any appreciation….guggggh
For breakfast late lunch (woke up late, really late) I broke out this big guy. European Style has 2x the amount of Greek Style for the same cost. That’s like buy one get one free!
It’s organic and it tasted pretty creamy and up-to-snuff in my opinion. The nutrition facts are pretty similar too! Still high in protein!!
I think I’m going to start getting this tub from now on.
…With some wheat berries, Kashi Puffs, banana slices, thawed frozen berries, and what’s that ball of goodness?
What is it?! You’ll just have to wait and see!
I had to go volunteer at Greek Week, so I brought half of this bar for when my hunger came around. It was hiding big time post-run.
I’m not a huge ginger fan but this bar was still very tasty and Fall-ish!
I came back and had a Green Monster w/ frozen spinach, frozen berries, and kefir.
I also had 2 of these guys that I made yesterday: Pecan Pumpkin Butter Cookies. They are no-bake, vegan and gluten free.
I modified this recipe using pumpkin butter instead of apple butter and pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon and nutmeg.
- 1 cup pecans
- 1/2 cup oat flour (ground up oats in Magic Bullet)
- 1/8 cup ground flaxseed
- 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1 TBSP agave nectar
- 1/3 cup pumpkin butter
I put it all in my Magic Bullet and shaped the ‘dough’ into cookies. I then placed them into the freezer and left them there. It was super duper easy to make and very moist and sticky!!
By the time dinner came along, I wasn’t too hungry so I kept it small. I made a Tempeh, Brie, and Cranberry Panini w/ a side of mini-peppers.
I marinated the tempeh in Pom Wonderful 100% Pomegranate Juice for a couple hours first. This seemed to help minimize the quirky flavor of tempeh!
Looks like beef, doesn’t it??
These mini-peppers you can honestly eat like french fries. I cut one open to show you all! The seeds are cut out with the stem! So convenient and easy!
I’ve got another meeting tonight and I’ve packed a Spooky S’mores Z-Bar. I can’t believe it’s already Sunday night!! I really got zero work done today, yikeserama! I really need to make tomorrow productive (don’t I say that every day?).
**BSI submissions due 9pm tonight!! Thanks to those who have already submitted their entries! The almond butter creations are looking scrumptious!!

1) When you were a youngin’ what did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be a grocery store cashier (ironic much?) because I liked the idea of scanning products across the check-out counter and seeing the light go from green to red. Later, I wanted to be a divorce lawyer because I was always curious about why people got divorced. Ohhhh how things change.
2) If you eat yogurt, what’s your favorite brand, style, and flavor? I like Greek style yogurt because of the thick and creamy texture. I don’t have strong preferences for a certain brand although I did try Skyr.is from Whole Foods ONCE and it was out-of-this-world (too expensive though!). Has anyone tried this brand!?
