It appears I missed the milk replacement train a long time ago!

Sounds like many of you prefer soy or almond milk to regular cow’s milk – which has piqued my interest in trying out some of the brands you all mentioned. We know that getting enough calcium is crucial for healthy bones – especially for women – but the taste of regular cows milk isn’t my favorite and I always feel like a balloon after I drink it. Maybe I’ll give some of these replacement milks (that are fortified with vitamins and minerals) a whirl, and let you know how it goes! :D

First, breakfast. Southwestern Eggs & Toast!

I whisked up one whole egg + two egg whites with a dash of hawt sawce.

Scramble and top with some fresh salsa for the southwestern portion of your breakfast. Toast up some whole wheat bread for the toast portion…

And you’ve got yourself a kick butt Friday breakfast, my friends!

Have you ever added salsa to your eggs? It gives them so much flavor, without having to add extra fat like cheese, ham, butter, etc.

And I’m falling more in love with this bread every time I eat it. So hearty, that it’s like a meal in and of itself!

Plus the tops are super cute and bubbly. Mickey Mouse? Clouds? Heart tops? Anyone? Bueller?

The fearsome foursome are making an appearance at lunch today.

We’ve got a Ginger Snap Larabar,

Which, with only 6 ingredients, manages to taste like the chewiest, yummiest ginger snap cookie you’ve ever had. Oh snap!

A navel orange. I tweeted about this the other day – it’s a good thing that oranges are so delish, because they are a pain to peel. I prefer the zipper skin of a clementine, but the size of a navel orange. Somebody needs to engineer a zipper skinned navel orange. Just saying.

I’ve also got some carrots and almond butter. I may have definitely swooped a couple spoonfuls of almond butter as I was packing this last night. Can’t get enough of the stuff!

Oh, ha, look at this carrot I found in my bag of baby carrots! Could you just die? I snarfed him right up. :)

And rounding it all out is a Fat Free French Vanilla Bean Yogurt. Oh yes.

What a delish day of eats on this Friday! It’s going to continue on into dinner too – Ben and I are hitting up one of our recent favorite dinner spots. Any guesses as to where it could be? :) Ms. Holly checked it out for herself the other day!

In other news, thanks to my sister-in-law, I was reminded that it’s been way too long since I’ve seen the Beyonce Clown video. If you’re in need of a chuckle, nay, a hearty, tear-filled belly laugh, you MUST watch this. I sat and laughed like a maniac as I replayed it it least 10 times last night. Ben thought I was crazy. You won’t after you watch though. Happy har-harring! :D

 
Oh, also! It apears the fitness funk has become a widespread epidemic! Anyone who wants to get in on the 3-day workout challenge is welcome to join. Home gyms/DVD videos count too – just get that body movin’! Happy Friday!

I’m looking forward to buying a new pair of jeans and wallet. Yahoo!
