1. Fabulous breakfasts
Peanut butter breakfast cookie with bananas
Chocolate version with chocolate whey protein, cocoa powder, greek yogurt, and oats – topped with strawberries and cashew butter.
Voluminous overnight oats – 1/3 cup of oats, 1 cup water (cooked), added almond milk, chia, greek yogurt & berries – yielded over 2 cups of oats, but didn’t keep me full nearly as long as the small “cookies”. Lesson learned.
The most fabulous breakfast by far was Sunday’s batch of strawberry & almond cream crepes, but I don’t have that kinda time during the week!
2. “Free” food
So yesterday I forgot my wallet (and realized this during my commute in to work). I had only packed breakfast, planning on buying a cheap lunch and coffee on my way in to the office.
When you have a registered Starbucks card you not only earn free drinks and get free upgrades, but you can also scan your bar code right from your cellphone. Phew.
For lunch, I ordered Pita Pit online like last week – you use a credit card, tell them when you want to pick it up, then just walk in to the shop and walk out with your food.
Doesn’t look like a pita, right? I ordered the “fork style” option, with a black bean patty, avocado, pineapple, sprouts, mushrooms, roasted red peppers, spinach, peppers, onions, tomatoes, and cucumbers. I love that they don’t charge extra for additional toppings!
3. Cool Beans
A small, independent coffee shop is quickly winning over my loyalty from Starbucks. They offer 2 different flavored coffees each morning. Tuesday was S’Mores (AMAZING), and today I’m sipping Cinnamon Danish. I love when the coffee itself is flavored instead of adding a sugary syrup for flavor.
It’s been at least 75 degrees all week! It might be coming to an end, but I’ve enjoyed every second. We usually still get snow in March!
I get the opportunity to be featured on their blog next week, since they’re highlighting RDs for National Nutrition Month. I get to share another case of their new flavors with you! Check back on Monday for the giveaway!
