Pro Bar Review, Almond Butter, Salad and Sleep Deprivation

It's FRIDAYYYYYYY. I couldn't be more excited :) I woke up this morning at 3:45 am after falling asleep around 10:45 last night (yikes!). I got ready for work and then dropped Josh off at the airport. On the way to the airport, Josh ate his second Pro Bar, the Cherry Pretzel. Although he liked the cocoa pistachio, he LOVED the cherry pretzel. Overall, he thinks the bars are VERY filling (a great meal replacement bar), but that they do have a semi funky aftertaste. He (and I) cannot wait to sample the other flavors.

I made a quick stop at Starbucks to get a skim misto and then headed into work. It was very odd to be into work THAT early, but I got a lot accomplished and the day flew by! After work I ran to Costco to stock up on a few things. Along the way, I found this:


Totally delicious. I came home and passed out for a good half hour and then ran out to teach Body Attack. I made a final stop at Publix and then came home. Since Josh is out of town for the weekend, I have decided I'm going to spend the majority of my time with my boyfriend...

He is the hotness and he is all mine ;). I whipped up a quick salad for dinner consisting of romaine, broccoli slaw, broccoli, snap peas, pinto beans, an apple and salsa. On the side I had a few TJs tortilla flats:
What do you all use for dressing on your salads? I have become a salsa addict! My brand of choice is Newman's Own:


I got mild this week but I enjoy all of their varieties including black bean and yummy mango! After dinner, I enjoyed a few more tortilla flats and some almond butter.
I think its time for Twilight ;) and then bed! I have to be up early to teach Body Step tomorrow morning. Have a fabulous night ladies and gentleman.

Is this your first time reading Twilight? I'm on my second go-round of the series - LOVING IT. I'm about to start New Moon - can't wait for the movie this fall. :-)

I just saw that almond butter bought from Costco on another blog! I have to check that out when I get home.

And oh yes, salsa as dressing is amazing. I love using hummus!

Mom on the Run said...

Twilight was lasts summer's entertainment. Great series!

I can't believe how much you got done after waking up so early. I have a bit of insomnia and I am basically a zombie if I get up that early. Have a great weekend!!

I use salsa as a dressing too--I even have that brand in my fridge right now! I also like to use Bragg's,hummus, or sometimes BBQ sauce.

I've got to admit I'm a lil jealous of you Maranatha find! We are Sam's Club members. But, they don't carry healthy, natural gorceries on the cheap like Cosco does.

I'm loving all the Frank pictures this week - but you better watch out - I'm about 30 seconds away from hopin in the car and driving down to Charleston to steal him (he's just so darn cute!) :D

Lauren said...

Oh my gosh Newman's Own salsa is my absolute favorite! You MUST MUST try the mango and pineapple flavors. They are OUTSTANDING! :)

Hope you have an unbeleiveable weekend beautiful girl.

Take care!

Funny thing--we both have similar looking boyfriends ha! Except mine lives 2 hours away :[ I will see him in a week though!! And I love salsa on salads too! I actually am a big fan of Wal-Mart's generic brand of salsas, they come in some awesome flavs.

Lisa said...

I love almond butter. I buy it all the time and also make cookies with it.

heyitstay said...

I was so stoked when I found that almond butter at Costco! Unfortunately mine at home doesn't carry it :-(

I love salsa on salads! I also love BBQ sauce, and all natural dressings (such as a number of Trader Joe's ones). Especially the raspberry gorgonzola one!

I've heard mixed reviews abt that maranatha almond butter...some like it, some hate it. I would love to try it though!

Maria said...

I love fresh ground almond butter. So good with apples! Have a great weekend with Frank!

Sue said...
