Something really exciting happened in my Twitter land this week.
Seriously, I feel honored and almost famous in a modern technology sort of way.
I actually had my favorite Maoz salad again the other night for dinner; it’s still fascinating to me that they opened near my house.
The girl who handled the loading of my bowl made it really big for me too!
Aside from the Maoz salad though, vegetables have not been my thing this week. At all.
I have been completely sweet over savory and sometimes, I think that’s perfectly okay.
This lunchtime three ingredient pancake hit the spot multiple days in a row like I can’t even begin to tell you.
You may have caught a glimpse of it already on instagram.
The protein from the egg, the carbs from the banana mixed in the batter plus the sweetness from the blueberries were just so perfectly combined with the peanut butter on top completing it like it was cherry to an ice cream sundae.
I was so satisfied because it fulfilled my need for sweet yet kept me feeling strong through the afternoons from the fat and protein.
My sweet tooth has really been enjoying this Extra seasonal edition gum too.
I asked on instagram if anyone else had tried the new Confetti Cake Pop it and it seems I may have been first!
It’s real good. I recommend it.
I also recommend Arctic Zero. I really do. I never thought I would, but I do like it which I know I have mentioned to you in the past.
Again, it’s not traditional ice cream, it’s more like when you get frozen yogurt and load in the toppings for full flavor enjoyment effect but it’s great to keep in your freezer when you feel like indulging in a big bowl of dessert.
Although, lately my dessert bowls have been filled over and over with the LOVE O’s and chocolate chips.
Two types of chocolate chips to be exact. I have decided that it’s imperative to work with two chip sizes – > Nestle dark chocolate chips plus the mini semi-sweet chocolate chips.
It’s a texture thing. Winning combination. Do it.
I haven’t abandoned my other winning combination though, don’t worry.
Granny smith apples sprinkled with cinnamon with a side of peanut butter mixed with Cocoa Goodness Oat Clusters from Love Grown Foods — still top on my list of go-to snacks. Or mini meals. Call it what you will.
My son has been thrilled this week with Love Grown Foods too only in their Hot Oats department.
I don’t know what it is about their oats but every variety cooks up so rich and thick but really soft in texture.
I wish they sold Love Grown Foods in stores near me but right now they don’t. They assured me though that they are looking to branch out into locations in my area real soon so I am a little bit excited about that!
I am also excited about two more things.
#1 – My long run tomorrow.
Yes it’s on the treadmill again so yes this is the positive thinking part of my brain talking to you right now.
And #2- A Red Mango deal which starts today…
They keep telling me on the news that this weekend will be the coldest we have seen in twenty years but that doesn’t stop me from frozen yogurt.
I can’t drink water when I am cold but my sweet tooth gets what it wants. Always.
Ohh wait, tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. Are you still looking for chocolately recipes?
Here are some of my favorites, which are slightly healthy too!
Have a terrific weekend!The sweet things I ate this week plus chocolate recipe round up! #maoz #lovegrownfoods #redmango #arcticzero Click To Tweet
Are you a Love Grown Foods fan? Do they sell it in stores near you?
Will your long run be indoors or outdoors this weekend?
If you receive a box of chocolates for Valentine’s Day, will you eat them all or break them open first to see what’s inside?
