Happy Friday Eve all!! Yes, just one more day and well, it was finally, actually Thursday today Your “blond moments” on yesterday’s post totally cracked me up. I LOVE knowing I am not the only one who has “moments” like that.
Today’s eating is almost exactly the same thing as yesterday….When something is delicious, I could eat it all time.
Another TJ’s Spicy Ranchero Egg White Salad Sandwich (4 points+) with a Grande Dirty Latte (4 points+)
Today’s lunch actually was 3-fold. I officially polished off all the TJ’s Broccoli Slaw with 1 Tbsp TJ’s Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette & crushed red pepper flakes (1 point+)
2 more delicious BBQ Pulled Pork Tacos!
* 2 Corn Tortillas (2 points+)
* 1/4 cup “refried” black beans (2 points+)
* 1/3 cup Leftover BBQ Pulled Pork (3 points+)
* 1/2 oz shredded Pepper Jack Cheese (1 point+)
Then, it was time for our SALAD PARTY!!!
Today’s party was all about the launch of some of Annie’s cool new things and I have to say I am pretty darn excited to see that we have “LITE” Dressings!!!!
For all you Goddess Dressing LOVERS…..this one is now not only, “Lite”, but, GLUTEN FREE too!
Just 1 Point+ per Tablespoon too!
I sampled the Spinach, Cranberry Walnut Salad with it and I have to say, this is the first Goddess dressing I LOVED. I know some of you LOVE Annie’s original Goddess, but, I never got into it….This one, I could, for sure….I LOVED to sesame, soy sauce taste.
POPPY SEED!!!! I actually couldn’t wait to dig into this one.
1 Point+ Per Tablespoon too!
I am sure the fact that it was a FRUIT SALAD is what appealed to me the most, but, I LOVED the creaminess of this dressing ~ it’s slightly sweet and slightly tart. I am so excited Annie’s has some new LITE flavors that are actually pretty tasty!
Have I ever told you all that there is ALWAYS food where I work…always!
Usually it’s random snacks, Mac & Cheese, but, we always get to have fun when we launch new products. In January, Annie’s also launched 2 new FUN FLAVORS of Pretzel Bunnies.
Served up with 4 AMAZING dips!
* Chocolate Peanut Butter “Black Gold” Dip
* Dark Chocolate
* Chocolate Hazelnut (ummm, Nutella!)
* Creamy Peanut Butter
My kind of party ~ Pretzel, Peanut Butter, Chocolate……need I say more?!
I LOVE how the pretzels are in Bunny and Carrot Shapes….somehow that makes them seem healthier
Playing with your food is ALWAYS encouraged!
The last TWO new products launched today are Annie’s GLUTEN FREE COOKIES
SnickerDoodle and Ginger Snap Bunny Cookies! I didn’t sample these either.
I totally could’ve had more salad than I did and had cookies too, but, honestly, I just wasn’t hungry….SUCCESS for being intuitive and listening to my stomach!
The Husband was IN CHARGE of dinner tonight since we were having leftovers.
Four Cheese Baked Penne sans the salad tonight (14 points+)

Marisa @ Loser for Life says
You have the best workplace ever!!!
How was the chocolate peanut butter? It sounds yummy!
I can’t wait to get some of that goddess dressing…
Okay, I am definitely going to look for that lite Annie’s goddess dressing – the regular one was my favorite!!
Happy Friday Danica!
I’m going to keep my eyes peeled for the lite dressings, because the “non lite” dressings by your company are EXCELLENT!! I very much envy your workplace!! Have a wonderful weekend.
You should be able to get it at Whole Foods or in the health food section at your local grocery store. I could always send you some too 🙂
It was pretty tasty ~ kinda like peanut butter cookie dough with chocolate chips in it. Not as good as the real deal, but, not bad either.
Lite Goddess dressing?! I think I have just died and gone to heaven.
I went searching for the lite goddess at my local Whole Foods but they didn’t have it. Do you know when it will be in stores?
They should be coming out in stores this month. If you cannot find them, please let me know and I will be glad to have some sent your way. I will also be hosting a giveaway soon.
Have a great weekend!
I am probably so on the wrong spot to post this, but I made the Four Cheese Baked Penne today. OH MY WORD! It was soooo yummo! 🙂 Give me a big fattening garlic breadstick and I’m at Fazoli’s. ha But instead I made a Healthy Life whole wheat hamburger bun with FF butter spray and garlic salt to go alongside. I really enjoyed this recipe! I was surprised at the spiciness the pepper flakes added (duh, but it was such a tiny amount), but I didn’t hear complaints except for from my 2 littllest. I will definitely be making this again. And I put out the entire 2 cup serving for myself, but I was so full it was silly. Next time I will have a 7 p+ serving and see how I feel after that.
