Happy Friday! Hope you all are enjoying the day!
I started off the day wonderfully with a bowl of oatbran:
The mix-ins were: cinnamon, egg whites, frozen blueberries, and a few frozen mango chunks (they’re hiding). I topped it with Naturally More peanut butter.
After a little blog reading and internet surfing, I decided to get my strength training on and Shred it up with Jillian. I did level 2 while jammin’ to my ipod.
For lunch, I made another wrapwich:
Whole wheat bread on the bottom and part of a Joseph’s whole grain lavish on top. Inside, I stuffed in some virginia ham, american cheese, turkey pepperoni, spinach leaves, alfalfa sprouts, and a french onion laughing cow. I LOVE laughing cow in my sandwiches…I don’t think I could make a sandwich without these now!
Plus a prunie:
After lunch, my mom and I headed out to run some errands, including stopping to get some groceries. We picked up a bunch of produce and other basics. But also found some fun things:
I have never tried the Ezekiel tortillas before so I am excited that I found them today!
After sadly finishing my carton of Coconut Bliss last week, I decided to HAD to get some more asap. That is exactly what I did. :) Once I finish this one, I am planning on attempting to make my own homemade coconut ice cream. Stay tuned!
I have seen this Kashi meal on many blogs so I can’t wait to try this out! Plus, I’m game for anything involving sweet potatoes.
And now I won’t wait any longer to show you guys my latest purchase that I received today!
What could it be?!?
IT’S A JUICER!!!
Is it weird to be this excited about a kitchen appliance? :D
As soon as I got it, I ripped it open and got to work. Here are the ingredients I used:
celery, carrots, 1 beet, and 1 apple
Here is is after juicing:
The color is so pretty! The beet has such an intense color that makes it look awesome. Just think about all the good vitamins and antioxidants that are packed in them!
I have to admit, I was kind of scared to put the food in the chute…those blades were spinning fast! Put once I did, it was FUN! I could have just kept juicing the entire contents of my fridge at that point. Clean up was pretty simple, too. So far, I give this juicer an A+++. I can’t wait to experiment with other combinations!
Now I’m going to see what’s up for dinner and for the rest of the evening. I hope you all have a wonderful evening!
