Feet To Go Before I Sleep

September 24, 2008

A late-night hello! Micro went all the way to 9:00 tonight. *Groan*

But Girls on the Run was fun!! Today’s lesson was healthy habits, which of course included making good food choices among others like flossing, exercising, journaling, washing hands. We had the girls play a relay where they wrote down 4 foods they ate in the past few days and they had to run and put them in envelopes according to the food pyramid groups. It was fun!! I ran about a mile with them during the last 15 minutes of practice, and my coach and I did another 3 miles afterward.  This week I put on dry clothes and felt great in lab – I even forgot that I had once been sweaty!

GREAT wrap tonight!!!

  • Garden of Eatin’ tortilla (frozen/thawed)
  • 2 slices smoked turkey
  • Avocado
  • Honey mustard
  • Sun-dried tomato feta (star ingredient)
  • Garden basil
  • Romaine
  • Tomato

I love fat wraps and this guy was quite fat when I tucked him into the foil.

Plus some wheatberries in applesauce!

And a date for dessert. <3 dates!

Eating around 5:00. I wasn’t that hungry just having ran, but I knew I had to eat or I’d wind up starving in lab.

Cereal Surprise

The husband invented something he calls “Cereal Surprise” a few years ago that is basically a calorie bomb of cereal, peanut butter, nuts and milk (he used to use cool whip which was REALLY good until we discovered the trans-fats in it…) So for years now I have been having bites of his surprise. When I walked in the door tonight at 9:20 debating what to have for a snack, he suggested a CS – and I went for it. I kept mine smaller and a little lighter than his typical concoctions, but it tasted just as good :)

It was a mix of Kashi U (finished the box, thought it was good but not worth the cost to buy regularly), H2H, GoLean, a few almonds, a spoonful of PB and hemp milk. SO glad to have hemp milk again after a long hiatus!! We actually got the wrong kind last week. I asked the husband to get some and he said they were out of the purple Living Harvest and came home with Hemp Plus, which literally smelled/tasted like dog food. It did not get consumed by me, but he drank/ate it all somehow! Probably in cereal surprises!

Check out what came in the mail today!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU tfh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t WAIT to try the Coconut Cream since none of my stores carry it.

I was hoping to workout tomorrow morning, but since it’s 10pm already I’d be better off getting enough sleep and studying for my nutrition test in the morning. Hopefully I’ll be in the mood for an afternoon workout despite the fact that there’s rain in the forecast.

Night!

Your wrap looks delicious.

I love the Living Harvest Hemp Milk.

I am anxious to try the coconut Larabar and the PB Larabar, but I can’t find them anywhere!

The Coconut Cream Pie Larabar is by far my favorite bar…ever! It is so so good.

Now I am going to have to go try some Cereal Surprise though since I am out of the Coconut bars.

kath, where do you buy your hemp milk from??

I’m excited to try Larabars, I just found out they sell them at Trader Joe’s. But I also saw they were bought by General Mills this year. I’m not so sure that’s a good thing.

“Garden of Eatin'” … now if I could think up stuff like that, I’d be a brazillionaire.

Kath: your recipes always look so good, even if they’re a brown-bagger! I have been thinking about trying hemp milk, so now if I get some I will know what to avoid…lol.

I love cereal surprises – I never had a name for mine before though :) I like mixing in yogurt and applesauce and even a bit of ice cream or maple syrup. Sooo many options.

I must just not like larabars at all. That coconut one is one of the worst I’ve tried!

OMG – Sun Dried Tomato Feta??? That sounds to die for! Do you use a specific brand, or was it just something you stumbled on to in the grocery store?

Reply

24 Caroline F September 25, 2008 at 8:32 am

OH MAN! I feel your pain on the Hemp plus milk. I beleive this was the brand I asked you about a few weeks back having SUCH a horrible experience with it! I am such a stickler when it comes to wasting food that I will usually grin and bear it but i had to literally pour the entire thing down the drain :/ Cant wait to see how you enjoy the Coconut LB, as I was thisclose to buying it yesterday at the store, until I remembered all my trusty bloggers I had to be a reference! Happy Thursday!

I love hemp milk but it’s expensive so I only buy it as a treat for myself every once in a while

What a cute game for the girls!

So, your Sigg dent. Did it make you sad at first? My first dent did. I’ve gotten past it though.

I would buy those tortillas based on name alone.

Wheatberries in applesauce!? Good idea.

Thanks for the Kashi U info. I too think it is way too expensive.

coconut creme pie larabar is the BEST. I am eating one right now for my mid-morning snack!

29 Rachel September 25, 2008 at 10:20 am

The coconut cream pie larabar is amazing. I was entirely underwhelmed by the pb cookie though. I think cashew cookie is way better. I also tried cinnamon roll, which was also really good!

I’ve always mixed cereals together. I call it a cereal salad. lots of different textures!

I love kashi go lean so much because it has so many different pieces all in one box, no need to buy a whole mess of different cereals, as cereal is dangerous to keep around.

Kath, you will LOVE the coconut cream flavor!!!

AlliJag ,
It’s President brand. It’s fat-free, which I buy for the texture alone.

HangryPants,
Dent happened the first week and made me very sad :(
