In case you are a newer reader, every morning in the Spring, Summer and Fall my Mom and I, who lives about 5 blocks away, go on a 1.5 mile walk in the morning! Mom walk = malk. It rejuvenates us both mentally and physically, and I look forward to them every morning. What a way to start your day, right?
Today’s walk was the very first of the season and was brilliant, I’m telling you! The birds were singing their little bird songs and boy was it warm. Even at 5:30am it was close to 70 degrees! It also whipped up a fierce hunger that I squashed with some Kashi Honey Almond Flax Cereal!
I received a sample of this stuff in the mail earlier this week, fell in love and bought a box the next day. Since then, I’ve, um, almost eaten the entire thing in four days…!
It’s great for a quick breakfast, or an evening snack when you need something to crunch on. The nutritional stats are good too, a lot of protein!
It is seriously delicious, to boot. I’m actually not a huge fan of the regular Kashi Go Lean Crunch, but the honey in this makes for some really big granola-like clusters that I adore, and the taste cannot be beat.
Beware – this is the crunchiest, loudest cereal I have ever eaten, so it’s not suitable for an office or classroom setting. Your co-workers & peers will be highly annoyed!
Paired with a banana, this makes for a great, on-the-go breakfast.
Here are some of my other Kashi brand product reviews:
For lunch I packed a Raspberry Vanilla Yogurt and a Roasted Veggie & Tofu Salad!
I save my yogurt to eat around 2:30 – when the afternoon munchies hit the hardest.
But this baby will be out in full force come noon!
It’s got leftover roasted broccoli, squash and asparagus from last night’s dinner, plus some of that baked tofu that Ben has fallen hard for. I topped the whole thing off with some freshly sliced strawberries, because clearly I cannot have a salad without something sweet.
If you’ve never tried a salad with cold, roasted veggies – I highly recommend! I think they get even more intensely flavored as they sit in the fridge overnight. SUPER yum! Oh, and cold tofu is bomb as well. Make a big batch on Sunday night and add it to your salads during the week!
Soooo, I’ve been so busy with catching up since getting back from New Orleans, that I completely missed the biggest IGE milestone yet – my 1 year blogiversary!
I kicked this little blog off on March 31, 2009 with a welcome message and some Banana Bread Pancakes (which I seriously remember sitting down and eating, weird!) The past year has been so much fun and I truly enjoy hearing from each and every one of you. Every comment and email I get from you guys brings a smile to my face. Thank you for reading!
With that – TGIF – and have a wonderful day!!
