This morning before I headed out to Costco (thinking I’d beat the crowd only to have people lined up BEFORE they opened), I snacked on 1/2 a Amazing Grass Organic Greens Super Food Bar.
I LOVE seeing all the organic ingredients and the stats are not too bad either. The entire bar is 4 Weight Watcher Points.
It looks very similar to a Lara bar other than it is ALOT “greener” :)
I thought this bar was alright – I couldn’t think of a way to describe the flavor. It’s sweet like a date with the taste of raw nuts and spinach. I like Lara bars better but 1/2 of this bar did a great job at keeping me full all morning. I did grab a couple of TJ’s cat cookies on my way out the door as well.
I came home to find our new stove installed! Yeah!
Check out ALL the oven settings – this if the first stove I’ve owned that I am actually not even sure what all the settings mean. I might have to read the book :)
My Costco finds were SO AWESOME that I had to share them with you all. I picked up the veggie burgers that I told you all about yesterday that we had at work. You find them in the Fridge section next to the pastas. They are VEGAN and cook completely fast! The brand is Don Lee Farms
The nutritionals and ingredients are awesome!
And the recipes on the box sound amazing. Another cool part is that you can keep this in the fridge or freezer!
I also bought some AmyLu Caramelized Onion Chicken Burgers – I LOVE Amy Lu sausages so I am sure these are just as fantastic.
And I am sooooo freakin’ excited that they finally carry Sandwich Thins out here!!!! I hear you all always talking about these fantastic 1 Weight Watcher Point buns and I can never get them.
I pretty much at this point think I am stocked up on burgers for a long time, but, in a good way for sure. For lunch I decided to grill up one of my new Don Lee Vegan Burgers on a sandwich thin.
Topped with Annie’s Organic Ketchup & Dijon mustard, tomato slices and avocado slices..
With a side of this Veggie Mix Salad I picked up at Trader Joe’s.
All together this was a fantastic 6 Weight Watcher Point Lunch! This veggie burger is amazing ~ it tastes alot like a veggie eggroll to me but you get the crunch of toasty sunflower seeds too.
For dessert, I had two of the most amazing cookies ever that I picked up at Costco too! They just melt in your mouth with lemony, buttery, powdered sugar goodness.
After lunch, I prepped for our BBQ tonight by making up my VEGAN Pasta Salad.
Plus my Healthier Potato Salad ~ This was The Husband’s sample bite to make sure it tasted ok :)
I also have a FANTASTIC dessert being mixed up right now! Pictures and the recipe to come later tonight or tomorrow, but, here is a HINT….It’s Homemade Low-fat Frozen Vanilla Bean Yogurt!
I am off to get ready for the BBQ! See you all later tonight or in the morning!
