I cannot believe it’s already time for another WIAW (and I even missed last week!) Is it just me or have the days been flying by faster than usual recently?
Let’s get back into the swing of things..
I had a revelation. I always put raisins in my oatmeal because I love dried fruit. So why not do that with my protein pancakes? BUT I decided to step it up a notch. Dark chocolate cherry protein pancakes. To die for and the recipe will be posted on Friday! You don’t want to miss this one.
Organic pineapple Oikos greek yogurt. I always get whatever yogurt is on sale, and 9 times of out 10 it’s fat free. The organic pineapple, however, is 1 1/2% fat and it’s so tasty! It has an extra creaminess to it that you definitely miss with the 0%.
Leftovers. I have so many leftovers! Not that I’m complaining because the leftover salmon, roasted red pepper hummus, and caramelized onion hummus has been delicious on my salads. I also recently ordered some nutritional yeast and have been sprinkling that on top of my salads and it is very tasty! It has a little bit of a nutty flavor and adds so many nutritional benefits. I also topped off my lunch with a mini Intense Dark Chocolate Espresso Escape Ghirardelli square. YUM!
I got mine from iHerb.com and if you use code ZAF482 at checkout, you can get $5 off your first order!
Guava goddess kombucha. It has to be my most favorite flavor and definitely hit the spot. And I followed that up with a mixed berry granola bar from Eat. Think. Smile. I’d never had their bars before but I would definitely go back for more. It was light and tasty and had just a hint of berry flavor, which was great because the rest was delicious cocoa!
LivingSocial is our friend and we cashed in! I treated myself to a Old Dominion Octoberfest beer and some amazing homemade baba ghanoush before diving into my salad. I almost couldn’t finish my salad because the app was so tasty, but don’t worry.. I managed 😉
I’ve found that Nathan and I both prefer baba ghanoush over hummus. Thoughts?
I’ve not done a great job of actually making spooky snacks for you all, but I did find out that my office is having a Halloween pot luck, so over to Pinterest I went! I found this little gem and they’re just too cute! I hope I get the chance to make them for the party!
Food for Thought
Does time fly faster for you as the year goes by?
What’s your favorite Halloween treat?
Those pancakes sound fabulous. I love adding protein to desserty-type recipes 🙂
And Oh my gosh those skeleton cupcakes are the cutest things ever! Thanks for the link. Love ’em!
Posted the recipe on the blog today! Check it out 🙂
Ha, love that you still finished your meal even with being full from the appetizer. Can’t ever let a good meal go to waste 🙂
🙂 Especially not when it’s all veg!
