So I completely felt the need to change things up this morning and have a breakfast that was different from yogurt, cereal or eggs. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE breakfast and I LOVE all those things, but, I was craving TWO things……
Kashi Strawberry Flax Protein Waffles x2 (3 pts)
And ALMOND BUTTER! I never realized I’d miss nut butters so much until I decided to NOT have them for a week 🙁 So, I took an almost empty jar and added a chopped organic fuji apple (3 pts) ~ SOO GOOD that it makes me want to empty my other jars just to do it all over again.
Who needs to rinse their jars to recycle when you have me to clean them?! LOL
Today was officially the LONGEST day ever and I know it’s because I am counting the days. i NEED to just not think about our holiday shutdown and that we are getting 11 DAYS OFF starting with Christmas eve 😀 😀 😀 I am only a “”little” excited for it but the waiting is so hard.
Continuing on my quest to finish my shopping at lunch, I ran around everywhere to find some things for The Husband. I made a planned stop at Whole Foods for their soup bar.
With Corny Corn Bread (3 pts per 1/2)! You have to have sweet corn bread with bean soups, dontcha think?
I also made a stop in Trader Joe’s and picked up stuff to make up Pasta salad plus these Short Bread Cranberry Thins. I seriously need to STOP with the cookies already.
Decent stats and ingredient list for being a treat.
I took two one HUGE and gave the box to my co-workers. My thighs will thank me later and now my co-workers LOVE me LOL.
When I got home I whipped up a patch of my VEGAN Pasta Salad for a Christmas party we are going to tomorrow night. We were told we can’t show up unless I bring “THAT” delicious pasta salad we brought last time ~ funny!
I completely wanted to curl up in a blanket, read and do nothing, but, The Husband talked me into shopping. He bought me a 3 pt Grande FF Decaf Latte with Caramel drizzle on top for being a trooper 🙂 I am so easily bribed with food – ha!

Brandi is also hosting another Knock Knock Giveaway too so you can always check hers out!
Before I got tonight, I wanted to tell you all to check out Holly’s Christmas Challenge. I LOVE her and her site ~ she is seriously amazing. However, what, she is doing for Christmas and her birthday this year completely blew me away. Instead of asking for presents from anyone, she is selflessly asking her friends/family to donate $$ to help build a well in Cambodia. She has almost reached her goal of raising $1,000 by Christmas. Check out her story and if you can help out, the minimum donation is only $10.
I am FINALLY off to read and relax but will probably pass out before I accomplish either. Be sure to check back in the AM for another GIVEAWAY ~ but it’s only ONE DAY!
