Happy Friday all! I pretty much think I marked down all the places you all listed for your FAVORITE Cupcakes on my last post. I think I should make it a goal to try the “cupcakeries’ in every city I visit…you know, just so I can report on where the BEST Cupcakes are
This morning I actually decided that Friday’s should include Dirty Lattes!
Venti Iced Nonfat Decaf Latte w/1 Pump Mocha = a Dirty Latte (4 points+) along with a nana.
I was starving as I left the house so I grabbed a Lite String Cheese (1 points+) so I wouldn’t order 1 of everything on the menu.
Our Road Tip started with TJ’s favorite sushi place ~ Yokoso Sushi. I actually think it might be my FAVORITE place now too.
Japanese Miso Salad ~ Their dressing is SO GOOD I almost think I could lick the bowl the way I want to every time I have Trader Joe’s Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette…..it’s probably a good thing we were in public or I might have (3 points+)
Miso Soup that we both pick the seaweed out of LOL (2 points+)
I knew I wanted to order the EXACT SAME roll I had last time, but this time I asked if they could add Sriracha….Guess what?! They DID! A little on each piece.
I ate ALL of this roll and it was AMAZING! I estimated this based off a Spicy Tuna Roll at 1 points+ a piece. (9 points+)
I bet you all would really think I am funny if I told you I could eat my body weight in RAW FISH sushi like this, but, if you cook fish, I don’t really like it…I am weird, but, I am OK with that
After our bellies were full we knew it would be safe to head over to Harvest House ~ A Bulk Health Food store.
They had rows and rows on Bulk Bins with everything you could imagine and it was all pretty reasonably priced.
I LOVE Ak Mak Crackers, but, have you all ever seen their HUGE CRACKER BREAD?!
Let me just give you an example of how big it is in comparison to the usual crackers.
ONLY 3 Points+ for ONE sheet (the same as 5 Ak Mak Crackers)
I am sorta curious if I would like it softened or if I’d just make my pizza or Laughing Cow with Apricot Jam on one HUGE Crunchy Cracker!
I actually think they are bigger than her head ~ we split the pack.
Next up ~ TJ’s FAVORITE Almond Cookies
Not really that great of a points+ bargain (10 for 3 points+)
or 3 for 1 points+….I LOVE that they are all funky shapes and sizes. They are totally delicious and I could easily OD on them.
I think I NEED to work on creating a delicious Crunchy Almond Sugar Cookie after trying these.
Just Veggies ~ CAUTION ~ Contents may be HOT!
3 Points+ for 1/4 of the bag ~ that’s a lot of veggie goodness.
The ONLY thing we missed reading in the ingredient list ~ JALAPENOS! Holy HOT-NESS! I think it’s because the word “HOT” in the title blended with the theme of these cute characters
I also bought 3 types of Kavli Crackers to share because TJ had never had them. I LOVE these crackers over Wasa Crackers because they taste like a cracker over hard cardboard.
They all have REAL ingredients too!
3 of these are 1 points+
Then, the next 2 flavors ~ 2 crackers are 1 Points+
Here is everything I bought…..I bought a Butte Creek Cinnamon Roll Mix, Sweet Corn Crunchies and had fun at the Bulk Bins too!
* Coconut Chips ~ crispy unsweetened coconut chips!
* REAL Vanilla Chips
* Raw Macadamia Nuts
* Dried Pears
* Whole Wheat Orzo
* Chipotle Powder
After all that shopping we were parched.
Grande Iced Dirty Latte (3 points+)
TJ actually got adventurous ~ I am SO PROUD of her! She “almost” got a dirty latte, but, instead she made a DIRTY COFFEE ~ Iced Coffee with 1 Pump Mocha and a little half & half. (2 points+)
OH, and I also found something to take a picture of at her house ~ this little plant is adorable….I LOVE the holder!
When I got home The Husband and I planned out our Dating Anniversary trip and then headed out to CHIPOTLE!
13 points+ and worth every HEAPING point. I <3 Chipotle & their Guacamole!
You can calculate the nutritional information at Chipotle Fan for any combination at Chipotle – then calc the points+ – LOVE it!
* Lettuce (0)
* Chicken (5)
* Pico de Gallo (0)
* Corn Salsa (2)
* A little cheese (less than a serving) (2)
* GUACAMOLE! (4)
NEW AT FRIENDS FOR WEIGHT LOSS
* Shannon shares the easiest Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup ~ Only 4 Points+
Do you buy anything in the bulk bins? If so, what is your favorite thing to get?
I am famous for buying something (like Chickpea Flour) because I see a recipe for (oh, Chick Pea Fries!) that I want to make. Then, I forget I have it I LOVE buying anything in the bulk bins that I want to try a little of but not have the expense of buying the whole package until I like it. Believe it or not, that is how I first tried Flax and Chia seeds, now I just buy a ton of them!
We are getting ready to watch Inception ~ The Husband told me I NEEDED to concentrate to watch it so no blogging and watching.
LET THE WEEEEEEKEND BEING!
