Did you have a good day? My day at work was semi slow. I came home and made up our dinners (to be consumed later in the night). For me, I cooked up some bell peppers, garlic, pinto beans, and corn in a little bit of olive oil. I tossed the cooked veggies on top of some spinach and tomatoes. I tossed this in the fridge and enjoyed it after I taught Body Attack with a thick slice of the bread Kath and Matt brought.
For Josh, I stir fried up some turkey, baby corn and water chestnuts in stir fry sauce. I topped it with some sesame seeds.
The most exciting part of my day is the package I received from Amazing Grass.
I won these goods from a contest on Run to The Finish!! Since I had a lighter dinner, I decided to give the Chocolate Whole Food Energy Bar a go. According to the Amazing Grass website, the bars are:
- Cold Processed
- Gluten Free
- Dairy Free

"
- 230 calorie bar
- 9 grams of fats (healthy omegas)
- 5 grams of protein.
- 27 grams of sugar only 2 grams is from the cane sugar)
- 37 grams of carbohydrates
Taste-wise, the bar was delicious. Very chocolaty in a natural, non-fake kind of way. I liked the chunks of cacao nibs. However, 230 calories is a lot for a snack bar and they only contain 5 grams of protein :( The bar is a nice size, but it isn't so large that I'd want to break it into 2 snack sized portions. I think I would use this bar as a part of a meal.
I am planning on trying the green superfood powder in my first green monster tomorrow!! Any suggestions on add ins?
