Snackage & I won another Giveaway!!

This morning before the Farmer's Market I decided to snack on one of my favorite snacks of all time ~ Almond Butter with a banana. I broke out another Artisana Sample Jar ~ Organic Raw Almond Butter.

I ate 1/2 the banana and left the other half to give samples to my co-workers.


Of ALL the flavors this is the one I thought for sure I'd LOVE. Afterall, Whole Foods Almond butter that you grind right there is my favorite. However, this is the one flavor I've tried that I did NOT like at all. It has a really strong raw almond taste, similar to almond extract and reminded me alot of the almond paste you bake with. The co-worker's agreed.

For lunch, we took off to the weekly Farmer's Market ~ are you all seeing a trend yet? I couldn't resist picking up some amazing organic strawberries.


And The Bread Guy sold me on buying some High 5 Fiber Bread when he told me that this time they snuck in dried blueberries - YUM!


I must have seem overly excited over it all because he gave us the remainder of the sample loaf of cinnamon raisin to take with us for FREE. My Co-worker bought an entire loaf of this amazingly soft and sweet bread.


I immediately decided that this was going to be my afternoon snack along with a grande ff iced latte (no picture, I downed it too quickly!)


I HAD to slice up the rest of the loaf and give it away because this cinnamon raisin bread was THAT amazing ~ I could easily see myself eating the entire loaf.

On our way out, we passed my favorite Bolani Bread guys and I wasn't buying anything today. They never let you walk buy though without noticing them and I scored a FREESpinach Bolani Bread ~ Woohoo!


Yeah for free stuff. Speaking of FREE STUFF, I won ANOTHER GIVEAWAY. The rockin' Julie GoLean held a Big S Salsa Giveaway and I was a runner up ~ Yahoo! I picked the Fire On The Mountain Salsa to try out. I'll definitely let you all know how it is.
