Happy Tuesday all! Thanks for sharing all you cooking with coffee ideas ~ good and not so good recipes. I have only baked with coffee once making Tiramisu Cupcakes and I remember that it took a lot of work. I have always wanted to use coffee in making chocolate cakes or cupcakes because they say it enhances the chocolate flavor.
After putting dinner in the crockpot to slow cook all day, I whipped up a super cheesy Healthy Eggroll for breakfast. 5 points+ because I used a higher points+ cheese.
Paired with some sweet, crispy organic blueberries
Several cups of coffee were consumed while making all of this….ok, just two before I left the house.
Since I knew today was going to be busy, I not only packed up lunch to take with me, but, I snapped pictures too.
Organic Mixed Greens with 1 1/2 tsp. sunflower seeds, 1 1/2 tsp.. dried cranberries and 1 Tbsp. Bolthouse Classic Ranch drizzled on top. (2 points+)
I doubled my “sunflower power” today by pairing my salad with half a Sunflower Butter and Raspberry Jam sandwich. (5 points+)
My midafternoon snack ~ A Chobani Key Lime Flip (4 points+)
There is something so amazing about those mini white chocolate chips, graham cracker crumbles and key lime…..I didn’t take my time dipping them today, instead, I dumped they all in at once.
I could not wait to get home tonight to dive into the Slow Cooker Pulled Pork and Kale Chips!
Served up a toasted sesame bun. (1/2 cup = 4 points+ and the bun = 3 points+)
Serve up a little BBQ Pork on each side of the bun or put the hat on and dive right in….
After adding some Wickles of course! The salad was his since he wont’ touch kale chips or admit it when he steals a few.
Yes, I know I am totally weird, but, I crave these crunchy green “potato-like” chips. 1 points+….and I totally ate an entire bunch of organic kale this way…I can admit it
Finger lickin’, lip smackin’ good!

QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What do you prefer? Peanut Butter, Almond Butter, Cashew Butter, Sunflower Butter or ?
I have to say I go through phases, but, I love them all…with Sunflower being my favorite at the moment ~ it tastes just like honey roasted sunflower seeds.
