Millions of Pieces, Pieces for Me.


Did you watch the Dancing with the Stars finale last night?!

I watched this season on and off, but tuned in last night to see who would take home the coveted mirrored-ball trophy. WOW (spoiler alert) Nicole can DANCE! Maybe it’s because she’s a…professional dancer…but that girl has some moves, and I’m glad she won. I had goosebumps the entire time she was on stage – what a performer! :D

In other news, my day is filled with 3-piece meals starting with an awesome, sampler style breakfast.


Omg that reminds me a House Hunters episode that Ben and I recently saw where every time the potential home buyer went into a bathroom, he’d count the number of pieces of furniture in it. For example, he’d call a bathroom with two sinks, a toilet, shower and seperate tub –  a 5 piece. “Wow. Great 5-piece setup they’ve got in here.” he’d say. He made it a point to call out how many “pieces” were in every bathroom he saw and it was hysterical! What a crazy person.

At any rate, first up is a decadent, better-then-a-real-cookie Peanut Butter Cookie Larabar. 


Just three ingredients. 3. Dates, peanuts, salt. SO buttery and incredible! 


A Fat-Free Raspberry Yogurt.


And a Pink Lady Apple! My co-worker keeps a small knife at work that we slice our apples with when it’s time to chow. Much easier than slicing at home and worrying about browning (although that doesn’t change the tate of an apple!)




Lunch is another 3-piece feast.

First up is a repeater of Monday’s humongous Vegetable Salad.


In the mix:

  • Mixed greens
  • Baby spinach
  • Cucumber
  • Carrots
  • Grape tomatoes
  • Deli turkey
  • Peanuts


Rounding out the meal will be a 2-piece snack.

Some Trader Joe’s Peanut Butter Filled Pretzels, (I’m pretty sure I could single-handedly keep a TJ’s in business if they came to my town. I’m just sayin’…)


and a Cascadian Farm Chocolate Chip Granola Bar.


Gotta love those 3-piece meals!


Oh, I also brought a little bowl of grape tomatoes to pop. I’d say that’s a 25-piece.




Does it feel like Thursday to anyone else? I’ve had day later syndrome all week, as in, I keep thinking it’s a day later than it actually is. What a bust!

Happy Hump Day!


How many pieces are in your meals today? Do you like to have a lot of little pieces or fewer bigger pieces for your meals?

I like lots of little pieces. I’m all about quantity at meal time!

The Ugly Duckling Dinner


I ♥ summer thunderstorms! It was crazy beautiful (and HOT!) in the Midwest today, but as soon as 4:00 came around, the clouds started rooooollin’ in. I made a dash for my trail and pounded out 3.5 miles in 30 minutes before the sky began to rumble, and the rain…

Operation Dessert Makeover


Operation dessert makeover was a success last night! Around 7:45, just as I was about to settle in to watch The Bachelorette (this season looks juicy!!), I got my nightly craving. Instead of reaching for Ben & Jerry’s, though, I reached for Frozen Banana Custard…with a twist! I whipped up Gena’s life-changing,…
