On Sunday I went to Target to treat myself to a few new items in honor of my birthday. Along with a new dress (they seriously always have the cutest clothes!), and 2 types of granola bars, I wound up with this:A beautiful new scarf, Bon Appetit and Mini Clif Bars. I am a huge fan of Clif Bars (I like Luna Bars, but not as much as these!), and was excited to finally make this purchase. These are the perfect snack on the go or workout fuel. They are each 100 calories and have between 4-5 grams of protein!
On Tuesdays I have a dance class from 9:40-10:55 and a Philosophy class from 11-12:20, so I thought this would be the perfect pick me up for in between. I have never tried the Blueberry Crisp variety, so it was my first pick. This dense little bar with filled with pieces of dried blueberry and had a nice crunch. It was so satisfying and held me over until lunch time. I will certainly toss a few of these in my bag from now on for some fast fuel!
As promised, I incorporated Crofter’s North America Superfruit Spread into my lunch!!The composition: Two Pieces of Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Grain Bread (Cinnamon sprinkled on each half after removed from the toaster), Crofter’s North America Superfruit spread on each half (~2TBS), slices of White Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese, a mound of Clover Sprouts, sliced English Cucumber, and Turkey Breast.
Winning combination!! Cinnamon is probably my go to flavor for everything, I just can’t get enough of it! The sharp cheese with the bitter cranberry was phenomenal! This spread was made for cheese. I liked the North America spread in my oats, but I LOVED it in this sandwich (mainly because of the cheese contrast). I had this and a big crunchy Jonagold; a meal made for the fall.
I lifted some weights this afternoon, so shortly after lunch I was still a bit hungry. To be full and focused, I went for the Chobani that I have been patiently waiting for the right moment to try: Non-fat Honey Greek Yogurt. I have ordered Greek yogurt for dessert at Greek restaurants and am always floored by how something as simple as thick yogurt, real honey and nuts can be so indulgent. I topped mine with Bear Naked Fruit and Nut Granola (~3 TBS-1/4cup), which is packed with almonds, walnuts, pecans, raisins and dried cranberries. I still have to try 3 more flavors to make a complete assessment of their products, however; this might be my favorite. It was thicker than the “fruit on the bottom” varieties, and had a stunning honey flavor. This is the way Greek yogurt should taste!
