I was up early to get in a 30 minute HIIT on the treadmill. I LOVE morning workouts because they start your day off right and I get to catch the latest on the news. This morning I wanted nothing sweet for breakfast, so I brought back an old favorite ~ An Egg White Fluffy! I spiced up my Egg White fluffy with some Tapatio Hot Sauce, sea salt and pepper. I served it on top of a Sweet Hawaiian Role and had a Tall FF Chai Tea Latte on the side. It was Eggsellant!
Mid morning I broke out a bag of the 100% Organic Banan-a-peel snacks that I got as part of the Goodie Swap I participated in.
They do not look so pretty in the bag, but, there was a quite a few in there. They are 100% dried with nothing other than banana in there.
The verdict ~ I thought they were pretty nasty. I was surprised because I LOVE bananas, but, these were just funky in a chewy texture and over ripe banana flavor. I only had 2 banana slices before I broke out a Trader Joe’s Light String Cheese.
I got my brows waxed at lunch, ran by the house to pick up my special package that was waiting for me and came back ready for lunch. I whipped up a FANTASTIC salad using up what we had in the fridge.
1/2 an Organic tomato, sliced
1/4 organic cucumber sliced
1 PERSIMMON sliced!
1 oz 98% Honey roasted turkey and ham
1 slice Lite Jarlsburg Swiss Cheese
1/4 organic AVOCADO!!!
Topped with Trader Joe’s Low-Fat Cranberry Walnut Gorgonzola Vinaigrette
I LOVED the crunchy sweet addition of the persimmon with the saltiness of the cheese, turkey and ham.
On the side, I had a some Trader Joe’s Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
with some Kashi Original 7-Grain Crackers. Have you all seen these little mini pouches?
They are single servings ~ LOVE it!
The secret package I got in the mail was from Choban!!! The fantastic peeps at Chobani sent me a sample of EVERY flavor of their amazing Greek Yogurt. I cannot wait to dig in and let you all know my favorite.
Oh and I will be sharing some Chobani LOVE with you all soon too! 😉
The rest of my day flew by which was AWESOME because I wasn’t sitting around dreaming about the fun I will be having at the Foodbuzz Blogger Festival this weekend!!! Ahhhh – I can’t believe it all starts tomorrow. I am excited and nervous all in one.
I have to admit though, when I walked in the door it was definitely a night for a Mocktail. POM Blackberry Iced Tea+Perrier+Ice makes all the craziness of the work day better!
As I sipped my Mocktail, I whipped up a fast and deliciously simple dinner ~
Mini Chicken Cilantro Pot Sticker Soup. The Husband has been feeling sort sick lately so I made an adventurous version of Chicken Noodle soup 😀 Each serving is only TWO WEIGHT WATCHER POINT – YAHOO!
Topped with Srirachi Hot Sauce! I LOVE that it took less than 30 minutes to make and I was able to use up some of the veggies we had in the house….Recipe and steps coming up next.
I also had a “chugging” contest with The Husband and downed some Emergen-C to keep his boy cooties away. Fingers crossed they stay away!
I was still hungry after two bowls of soup and I am sure it is because of my lack of afternoon snack. So, I toasted up two slices of Trader Joe’s Fat Free Multi-Grain bread with some Organic Artisan Butter ~ I LOVE bread and butter!
I just finished laundry so it’s time to pack! We leave tomorrow for the festival fun ~ I cannot wait!!!
See you all tomorrow night with a recap of the first day – yeah!
