Friends In Low Places

January 28, 2009

Kelsey saved the saved the day when she shared her fruit stash with me during Clinical

I had 3 grapefruits and about half a kiwi. It tasted so. good.

The afternoon wasn’t bad though. I wasn’t that hungry. But I am still thankful!

I had my You Bar at 5:00 right when class started (when I ate at EarthFare I didn’t get hungry at all until 6:30!) I received a random selection of You Bars as a sample a while ago. This “Great Date With Chocolate” was one of the smaller bars, but it did have protein powder in it. Here’s a link to their popular bars page with the nutrition facts and ingredients list.

My bar was a little smushed and it was very sticky against the package. At first I wasn’t that impressed, but it really grew on me. It was just like a chocolate fudge brownie!!! Very good. Similar to the Clif Nectar chocolate walnut bar, but much fudgier – which I liked. I wish I could say I’d order these, but that the price point listed, I don’t know…

Clinical got out a little early tonight!! Yay for being hungry. The wonderful husband makes dinner for me on Wednesday (as long as I plan something for him to cook and have the ingredients ready) and tonight was this delicious soup: Chickpea, Tomato, and Spelt Soup.

As far as I know, the only changes he made were leaving out the onion and celery and adding some kale (which was a great touch). He also did a combo of spelt, rye and wheat berries instead of just spelt. The soup was awesome – bursting with flavor and chew.

I had a buttered slice of Flax Oat Bran on the side

And not 2 minutes after taking this photo, I relocated to the couch :) The husband was already up to bed and I was lonely.

Here’s me getting sleepy:

I’m looking forward to some sunshine tomorrow! Wheeeeee!!!

I had soup tonight too but it wasn’t nearly as healthy/hearty as yours. Should’ve added some greens!

That soup looks great!


20 Ashley January 28, 2009 at 11:34 pm

Seeing all the yummy bread you eat makes me want to bake bread or seek out yummy bread. I think most of your bread is either made by your husband or store bought?

I know I don’t comment often but I do read every post and love them!


21 Biz319 January 29, 2009 at 12:12 am

Thank God for leaving out the onion!


22 Sarah (lovINmytummy) January 29, 2009 at 2:36 am

How many free loaves a week DOES your husband get??? Just wondering =) I had a friend who used to work there and she got a free loaf per shift.


23 Kath January 29, 2009 at 6:57 am

Gina ,

We have a household wide bread-buying freeze so all of our bread is Great Harvest.

You are correct :)

Biz319 ,
You know it!



24 Michelle January 29, 2009 at 7:22 am

Thanks for the bar review! Love that bread!


25 Erica January 29, 2009 at 7:44 am

The you bar looks great. I will be looking for those this weekend! I think its great that the husband makes dinner on Wednesdays!! Josh is good about making dinner if I need him to as well (but yes I also have to lay out the ingredients with directions ;)). Hope you have a great day Kath!


26 Erin January 29, 2009 at 8:13 am

Yay for getting out early and for that soup. Yum!


27 Jen January 29, 2009 at 8:22 am

The soup looks fabulous!


28 joyful January 29, 2009 at 8:24 am

Thank goodness for fruit-sharing friends!


29 Justy2003 January 29, 2009 at 8:31 am

Wow, a free loaf of bread every shift?! I would be in heaven!


30 K January 29, 2009 at 8:59 am

That soup looks sooooo good! Thanks for the Youbar heads up :)


31 Elina January 29, 2009 at 8:59 am

That’s so nice that the husband cooks for you on your busy nights! I need to train mine to do the same, hehe :)


32 Kate January 29, 2009 at 9:01 am

Those Youbar’s look SO good! I hate that they’re so expensive to customize:P


33 So Very Fabulous January 29, 2009 at 10:02 am

Wow, that soup looks delish! I think I’m going to have to try that recipe out this weekend!


34 brandi January 29, 2009 at 10:16 am
