Happy Hump Day all! I hope you all are having as much fun with SpringPad as I am. I honestly think Springing Recipes might be my newest addiction.
You know your day is going to start off good when you have DESSERT for breakfast. It all started with a Chocolate Fig Vitatop.
Check out all the figginess going on in this Vitatop!
I LOVE adding frosting to my Vita-Tops so I broke out my FAVORITE Crunchy Almond Butter from the Nut Barn.
And layered it on! This was AMAZING and totally tasted like a chocolate covered fig newton ~ YUM! This might be one of my new favorite flavors.
I had some strawberries that my co-worker shared and a Tall FF Chai Tea Latte!
About 3 hours later I was ready for a snack. I had a Honey Crisp Apple with Almond Butter. Some things you can NEVER get enough of ~ ummm, like Almond Butter!
I had planned on having leftover Channa Masala for lunch until my two co-workers offered up going out to eat with a stop at the Halloween Store. Our office has a departmental decorating contest every year and we all participate to WIN the TROPHY plus prizes. We are on a quest for the perfect decorations ~ The Husband is being called in to build some stuff too :D Oh and I still need a costume! Why are ALL the women’s costumes so NOT work appropriate?! LOL…..
Before shopping we headed out to Fazerrati’s Pizza. I LOVE the name of this place ~ It honestly makes me think of Fonzie on Happy Days – like this is the name of the place he should’ve hung out vs Arnold’s.
I picked their One Slice, Salad Bar & Iced Tea. It’s pretty cool because they will make you ANY pizza you want for your one slice.
Lunch started here…..
I made up an AWESOME salad with pretty much everything on the salad bar.
Tons of Romaine
Red Bell Pepper
LF Cottage Cheese
Sprinkle of Toasted Sunflower Seeds
Ranch dressing on the side with my fork for dipping!
For my slice I picked Vegetarian ~ I ate it ALL! The crust was AWESOME – so thick and chewy.
I wasn’t really hungry this afternoon but I wanted something sweet. So, I settled for some Trader Joe’s Hot Spiced Cider. Even the screaming witch was eyeing my CUP ~ it was DELISH! I saved on calories/points by using 1/2 water and 1/2 juice – it was just as sweet as drinking it straight up.
After work I headed off to my Weight Watcher meeting. Have I told you all that I just LOVE my new leader ~ she totally inspires me in everyway. I want to look as amazing as she does when I grow up :) I got TWO Bravo stars tonight ~ A for showing up when I didn’t want to after our Holiday Party tasting and B for being smart :D
When I walked in the door The Husband told me I had some FUN mail. First he showed me my new Health & Fitness Mags – fun! Then, he took me into the kitchen where I had a box from Nature’s Path!!!
* More Peanut Choco BARS ~ I LOVED the one I got at BlogHERFood09!
* Organic Sunflower Agave Plus Granola
* Organic Optimum Blueberry Cinnamon Cereal
Plus TWO Gluten-FREE versions
* Organic Whole O’s
* Crunchy Vanilla Sunrise
YUM! I LOVE everything of Nature’s Path I’ve had so far – I cannot wait to dig in and try these out. Thanks Nature’s Path – you can NEVER have too many cereals to mix and match!!! Reviews and A GIVEAWAY coming soon! 🙂
The Husband placed his order for dinner with me before I ran out this door this afternoon. He wanted tacos from Vasquez, our favorite local deli. This might just become a Wednesday tradition because these are the BEST tacos around. I had 2 Crunchy Chicken Tacos with Hot Sauce.
Plus a TJ’s Non-Pareils for dessert. These are eh, ok ~ I don’t think the chocolate is as good as some of their other chocolates. It’s pretty bitter and not creamy :(, but, they are not bad. I will not buy them again. There are too few calories in a day to waste them on eh, ok, foods.
You have one more day to WIN COOKIES! Off to read, relax and sleeeeeep!
