Happy Hump Day all!! I am SO EXCITED that I managed to get one of my FAVORITE FARMER’S MARKET Vendor’s products in My Danica’s Daily Shop! You always hear me rave about The Nut Barn Crunchy Almond Butter and I honestly believe it IS the BEST almond butter on the market!
I have partnered with The Nut Barn and Open Sky to have four fun bundles added to my shop! Each bundle includes a jar of their delicious Crunchy Almond Butter and FOUR packages of specialty nuts.
This is something I buy at every Farmer’s Market I go to (even when we are in Tahoe!) and I can tell you that everything is amazing…….
BUNDLES!!!!! The pictures/words over at Open Sky are being worked on, but, here is what each bundle includes…if you have any questions at all, just let me know.
The Nut Barn – Danica’s Daily Nutty Favorites ~ Butter Toffee Almonds, Roasted/Salted Cashews, Hickory Smoked Almonds, Raw Almonds + Crunchy Almond Butter
The Nut Barn – For a Nutty Sweet Tooth ~ Honey Roasted Cashews, Cinnamon Honey Almonds, Mocha Almonds, Orange Honey Almonds+Creamy Almond Butter
The Nut Barn – For the Nutty Adventurer ~ Roasted/Salted Pistachios, Roasted Salted Cashews, Roasted/Salted Almonds, Butter Toffee Almonds+Crunchy Almond Butter
The Nut Barn – The Nutty Sampler ~ Tamari Almonds, Wasabi Almonds, Tequilla Lime Almonds, Onion Garlic Almonds+Creamy Almond Butter
I LOVE it when everything comes together and I can share something with you all that I am so passionate about. I celebrated this morning by having 2 slices of TJ’s FF Multi-Grain Bread with toasty, crunchy Nut Barn Almond Butter and Pomegranate Blueberry Jam (4.5 pts).
Plus more banana-berry goodness (1.5pts).
Pre-Spin Class I snacked on a Lemon Poppy Seed Lighter Living Bar.
Less calories than the apricot, but, still just 2 points!
I think I was expecting to see a yellow bar with poppy seeds LOL. This flavor is just like a yogurt covered lemon lara bar ~ it’s tasty, but, apricot coconut still has my heart.
As I was working along, I had a fun package delivered on my desk!
Annie’s Naturals has come out with PASTA SALAD KITS!!!
They take the delicious Annie’s Organic Pasta and the FRESH Annie’s Naturals Salad dressings (not dried packets) to create these super fun kits.
The best part is that they are pretty cheap! You can get a 6-pack at Costco for only $6.99 and Target will be selling single boxes. Fun!
After all that excitement I was off to Spin Class ~ it kicked my bootie, but, felt great. I dreamt up lunch as I was pedaling away.
It started off with my favorite farmer’s market chile lime tortilla topped with Spicy Chipotle Black Bean Harissa Hummus.
Then, I added a BBQ Turkey Burger with some Low-Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. (6 pts).
Side Salad with Now Spicy Cajun Sticks & TJ’s LF Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette ~ I am IN LOVE with these HOT sticks! (2 pts)
Along with the pasta salad kit I got this morning, we had an invitation to come to the Annie’s Natural’s Pasta Salad Tasting 😀
I sampled all 3 flavors plus garlic bread! Surprisingly I really liked them all and I am not a mayo salad type of person. I really think you need the fresh produce in the kits to make them this delicious 🙂
I counted this as my one FREE meal for the week. It was worth it!
After work I headed off to my Weight Watcher Meeting then did a ton of shopping/errands, including a stop at Costco.
Have I ever mentioned that our adopted kitty has a box fetish??? Oh, but, only when The Husband puts it down for her. She just looks at me if I do 😀
While dinner cooked, we harvested the garden. We split the goods evenly 😉
1 point each!
REAL ingredients and nothing funky ~ this is why I LOVE this brand! Oh and they taste awesome for frozen too!
I <3 Potstickers!!! Can you believe I forgot to have Sriracha with these?!
A simple side salad a la The Husband. Dinner clocked in at 7 pts.
Did I mention that she is STILL in this box like 3 hours later?! Maybe she is hoping the Chicken Wings will magically appear! LOL…
My Wordless Wednesday Picture was the view from the room we got ready for our wedding in on the Caribbean Island of Anguilla at Shoal Bay. Isn’t it beautiful ~ I have to say that is my all time favorite beach ever!!!
It’s been a LONG day and tomorrow is going to be even longer! 2 days left and counting.
