Who needs Florida?! It’s going to be a gorgeous week here (88 on Sunday?!), and they even updated today’s forecast to partly sunny – wheee!!
While I am going to continue to practice my yoga this week, I am dedicating these sunny days to getting back into running. I’ve been very sporadically logging my miles these past several weeks and it’s time to get back out there. Who’s with me?!
Well I tried out one of my new Trader Joe’s finds in breakfast today – Crunchy Roasted Flaxseed Almond Butter – and made Banana + AB Oats!
In the mix:
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 cup water
- 1 banana (half sliced in while cooking, half on top)
- Vanilla extract
- Crunchy Flaxseed Almond Butter
Mmmkay, this stuff is the bomb!
It’s SUPER roasted tasting, very nutty and the flaxseeds kind of remind me of tiny pumpkin seeds in the way that they crunch. Very poppy/crunchy – it’s really cool!
It was fabulous drizzled over my hot banana oats.
Seeing many more spoonfuls of this in the near future.
I packed an enormous salad PACKED with veggies for lunch today – nothing like starting your week with 6 cups of ‘em.
In the mix:
- Mixed greens
- Dole Stir Fry Veggie Medley (carrots, broccoli, snap peas)
- Dried cranberries
People always ask me what dressing I use on my salads, because I never show it on the blog, but I usually keep a bottle of Annie’s Lite Raspberry Vinaigrette right at work, so I don’t have to bring a container of it everyday. Today I’ll be using my new TJ’s Soy Ginger Dressing though!
And, um, MORE TJ’s goodies – Peanut Butter Filled Pretzels. Ben and I had to physically move them out of our site last night. Here’s how we eat ‘em… They are so addicting!
Looking forward to 12:00!! What time do you eat your lunch?
Alrighty friends, time to get this party started – have a great Monday!
p.s. don’t forget that you have until 5pm central tonight to enter to win the Cascadian Farm Snacky, Crunchy, Chewy Giveaway!
Weigh in: crunchy or smooth peanut/almond/other butter?!
I say, other than that crunchy almond butter from TJ’s – SMOOTH!
