I have some good news (at least for one of you… ) Rafflecopter picked the winner for the Food Should Taste Good Giveaway! Congratulations to Georgiana – Check your email!
And even more good news… Remember the shoulder issue from last week? It is doing SO much better. A trip to the best Chiropractor, lots of rest, stretching, and KT Tape have helped with a quick recovery. Mostly I’m excited to be able to sleep without intense pain. I wake up so rested! I even woke up before my 4:20am alarm this morning for CrossFit!
Now- Since it’s Wednesday, On to the Eats! Thanks again to Jenn for hosting my favorite link up!
So for breakfast I was craving Pumpkin Pancakes and I really liked Danielle’s recipe so I pulled up her blog… only to find she had a new recipe for Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Pancakes that I just HAD to try. Seriously, she is a Paleo genius. I really didn’t want to share these with my 2 year old… but she had to eat, so I shared.
For a snack I was SO excited to try one of these Keen-Wah Decadence bars. I was sent a few of each bar to review. I was really looking forward to it. I love Quinoa – it is so versatile! Also, I love that they spelled it out Keen-Wah. One time the husband spent like 30 minutes in the store looking for Quinoa before realizing it wasn’t spelled with a K. ha. Anyway, back to the bars… I tried the organic chocolate Chia. It was good, the texture was different. It isn’t exactly like a granola bar, but its not like a date bar either… kinda in the middle. I love that it is made with organic whole foods. The chocolate Chia bar has just 195 calories and 6 grams of protein. The ingredients are all pronounceable: Almond butter, coconut nectar, Peruvian cacao powder, chopped almonds, cacao butter, Peruvian cacao nibs, chia seeds, sprouted quinoa flour, quinoa crisps, brown rice protein powder, Himalayan sea salt, Chocolate Coating: Dark chocolate (evaporated cane juice, cocoa butter, chocolate liquor, soy lecithin). I love when I can pronounce and understand all the ingredients. I am a fan of these bars, they reminded me of a candy bar, but without the guilt!
Lunch was a quick bowl of leftover chili. I’m pretty sure leftover chili tastes better than fresh chili. The longer the flavors sit the better it gets!
Dinner was simple. It usually is when I have school work due. Alexia’s Sweet Potato Tots and a Turkey burger with Cheese, Bacon and Sautéed Onions on top of a bed of Spinach leaves. Ketchup was added after this picture. To be honest, I really don’t miss eating the bun with a burger. This satisfied me just fine without making me feel bloated. Score!
