Today has been nothing but BLUE SKIES and SUN SHINE :)!!! The weather has an impact on my mood (can you tell I’m fairly “happy-go-lucky” right now) and my food. I was all smiles as I walked back to my apartment from my morning classes. I called my mom and I think the only words that came out of my mouth were, “The sky is so blue.” If you lived where I am from, you too would understand the significance of this. Over half of the year it is all clouds and darkness…NOT my style. I decided when I got back to make a big ‘ole fresh salad and a Boca Burger for lunch:In the mix: 1 Boca Burger (hidden under the mango and avocado slices), bed of spinach, 1 large carrot (grated), sliced cucumber, sliced baby bella mushrooms, 1/2 an avocado, mango slices and red pepper slices.
I love eating fresh foods when the weather is nice. It is so refreshing, and this salad was packed with flavor. Adding the Boca Burger give is more substance, plus I was in the mood for one. I put Boca Burgers into wraps with avocado, hummus and veggies because I think they work well with those flavors.
After lunch I decided on apple slices with cinnamon and crunchy almond butter. I was so glad that I decided on the almond butter because I discovered that my jar was almost empty!! Luckily, I have work tonight at the grocery store so I can pick more up.It would be a sad day if I ran out and didn’t have a jar on back up. When I got back from my afternoon classes I was excited to try my Sesame and Peanuts KIND Bar.I have been dying to try this flavor for a while now and FINALLY found it during my natural food store excursion. It looks so delicious, and I love peanuts, sesame seeds and chocolate, however; I was disappointed. It didn’t have the full flavor of peanut and sesame I was looking for. I wished that they were toasted or roasted to really enhance the flavor. It was okay, I liked it, but it wasn’t my favorite KIND product. I think I will be a Fruit and Nut Delight KIND Bar girl for life.
I hope everyone has a fantastic St. Patty’s day!!
Do you have a traditional Irish dinner on St. Patty’s day? If not do you have other traditions?
