Wow, I can't believe it's almost lunchtime and I still haven't shared my breakfast with you all. Today has been one of those crazy busy days from the time I got up. I was rushing around the house, traffic was insane and work has been good, but, busy, busy. I think I caught up on all your comments too - yeah! I am soooo ready for the LONG weekend and can't wait for tomorrow!
You all will be proud of me ~ We are having a big work BBQ tomorrow that is catered by a local BBQ place. I ordered a Veggie Burger because I felt it would be the safest, low cal option - yahoo! I'll be sure to share all the fun details tomorrow AM.
Breakfast this morning was awesome if I do say so myself. I started off with a warm, toasted piece of the Pecan Swirl Bread I got at last week's Farmer's Market. I made sure to slice it up and freeze it so I can enjoy it for awhile. It is 3 WWP a slice - such a bargain! I LOVE the cinnamon filling and the roasted pecans.
I made up a quick 3 WWP smoothie to wash it all down.
1/3 c TJ's Fat Free Greek Yogurt
1/2 c FF Milk (although Almond Breeze would have been awesome here!)
1 small banana
1 Tbsp ground flax seed
It was so creamy and fruity! I LOVE smoothies when it starts to warm up.
My mid-morning snack rocked as well. I tried a new KIND Bar ~ Almonds & Apricots in Yogurt!
I LOVE that these bars are handmade and packed with wholesome, CLEAN ingredients. I LOVED the nuttiness of the roasted almonds with the apricots and the sweet, vanilla yogurt. I normally will not spend more than 4 WWP on a bar, however this bar is worth the entire 5 WWP. It filled me up and didn't leave me wanting more which is a huge thing for bars and me.
I came across a great article this morning while perusing the latest Cookinglight.com recipes. It's about training your brain to think like a thin person. Click HERE to check it out.
Do you all have anything fun planned for the long 3-day weekend? We are pondering ideas - so far The Husband said he wants to go Gold Panning and on a picnic - that should be a fun one to pull off!
Be sure to check back later today as I am going to be announcing my next Giveaway - yeah!
