Booty & Workout Wednesday

Hey All! I apologize for being MIA. I finally made it through the craziness and officially started my staycation today! And what better way to kick it off than with a Charleston’s Cafe Blueberry parfait?

 

P1080771

The rest of the day was/will be spent catching up with things around the house, relaxing, and then heading to a work dinner for the man. What are you up to?

The other day I received a very fun package:

booty 002

At first, I had no idea what it was and then I saw this sticker on the back:

booty 003

The nice folks at M Booth and Pirate’s Booty sent me a treasure chest filled with six bags of booty ;).

booty 004I was super excited (disclaimer: I received this product for free, but the opinions listed are my own). So far, I have only tried one flavor, New York Pizza:

booty 005

I love the texture of Pirate’s booty (light and fluffy) and the flavor was spot on without tasting too fake. The best part about Pirate’s Booty, the nutritional stats! According to their website, Pirate’s Booty is all natural, baked, trans fat and gluten free and I can read and understand the entire list of ingredients! They also sent me a few cute temporary tattoos, which I immediately put on:

booty 010 

I think this would make a great snack to take to work or to put in your kids lunches. What is your favorite quick, grab and go snack?

And since its Wednesday, here is my plan for the week! Since Josh has a few work dinners I had/have to attend, my schedules a little different this week:

  • Monday: Quick run to warm up and taught Body Pump
  • Tuesday:  Gym- ET and ran
  • Wednesday:  Medium duration run outside in the morning (glorious!)
  • Thursday:  Teach 45 minute step/45 minute pump
  • Friday:  Run/walk with Lindsay (can’t wait!)
  • Saturday:  Teach Step
  • Sunday:  Off

I love Pirates Booty! My favorite quick snack is usually some form of fruit with nutbutter... love it!

Jenna said...

I don't think the day can really start much better than with that parfait. It looks heavenly!

I am a fan of yogurt & fruit or a sandwich thin & AB for a quick and filling snack.

My current quick snack obsession is a sliced Granny Smith apple with Babybel light cheese! So good.

MRS SIMMONS said...

love the treasure chest. I knew right away it had to be pirates booty. I prefer fruit or homemade granola bars.

Nicci@NiftyEats said...

I just had a delicious blueberry shake this morning, blueberries are my new fav fruit this summer. I dont know why I didn't care for them last year.

Shannon said...

ooh, that parfait looks perfect! i'm not a huge fan of airy snacks, but i also haven't tried pirate's booty ;)

Beth @ DiningAndDishing said...

Almost every day I grab a Cliff Bar! They're so easy to grab and go with, plus they keep me full til my next meal. I suppose I should find a slightly less processed snack tho...

Enjoy your staycation!

Lindsay @ http://pancakesnpajamas.blogspot.com/ said...

I can't wait for our Friday date either! Woot Woot! Hope you and Josh are going somewhere fun for his work dinner. My favorite on the go snack would be Justin's AB on anything! ;)

What a great box!!! Hope you're enjoying your staycation to the fullest!

Holly said...

haha I love Pirates Booty! The name kinda made me laugh the first, oh, 100 times I said it. :-) I've never had the pizza flavor, though. I will have to try that one!

Sarah said...

You have been MIA :-) Glad your staycation has begun, and I hope you have some fun and relaxing things on your agenda.

Corey - The Runner's Cookie said...

Pretty parfait! I've never tried Pirates Booty, but I love having popcorn as a snack - especially mixed with some cereal, dried fruit, nuts, choc chips etc. to make a trail mix.

teresa said...

cool! i really want to find this for my kids lunches, i need all the healthy snacks for them that i can find!

Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) said...

mmm the blueberry parfait looks great!

I've still never tried Pirate's Booty! The flavors sound great.

TiffersRunsTX said...

Gotta love the booty! :P I haven't tried them, but now I really want to, lol.

Campinggirl said...

I've never heard of the Pirates Booty. My fav go to snack is turkey sausage sticks.

Julie said...

gahhh hii hi hi!!! i'm SO happy you're on staycation! and seriously way to start it off with a bang at the charleston. i bet they were so excited to see you :)

did you know the people from pirates booty are from long island!! i think you should come visit their factory and eat REAL new york pizza instead of pirates booty flavored piz.

get your relaxation on girl! you totes earned it.

vanillasugar said...

oh my gosh you and those parfaits. you never tire of them.
not a fan of the booty, too dry for my tastes.
fav snack? gosh just one? i love those Kashi cc cookies w/ 7 grains with a dollup of pb. how is frankster?

Lauren said...

I will never tire of seeing these wonderful parfaits. Next time I am in NC, I am seeking out the Charleston Cafe just for one of these parfaits!!!

I've never tried Pirates Booty but I love the packaging. How cute that they sent it in a chest! :) That makes me want to go out and buy a bag just for that.

Mom on the Run said...

We love Pirate's Booty! We actually still have our treasure chest. So much fun.

I wished I liked yogurt. Parfaits would be so good right now.

stephanie @cookinfanatic said...

Those parfaits call my name every time I see them - yum! Yay for staycations too, enjoy that time girlie :)

Stacey said...

Love the pirates booty box, that's cute. Enjoy your stay-cation.

Jessie (Bites and Pieces) said...

Love me some Pirate's Booty! It's even better that it comes in such fun packaging. Enjoy the rest of your week, girlie. :)

Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) said...

skylar and scott would have peed their pants for all that pirate's booty. they love it! i dunno if you have access to a tj's, probably not, but Tj's has an in-house white cheddar (not vegan!) puffed snack..anyway, it's 1.99 for a HUGE bag if you're ever in the market, scott and skylar love that one!

Esi said...

I'm embarrassingly addicted to the aged cheddar pirate's booty. So good!

Courtney (Pancakes and Postcards) said...

they have a PIZZA flavor??? God, I live under a rock...

Miz said...

my daughter could LIVE on the 'booty if I were to let her.
or she thinks she could :)

Jenna said...

i've never heard of or even seen this snack around! I'll have to look for some next time i go to the grocery store. With ava in school now we are always trying to find new and healthy things to add to her lunches. it's so easy to get stuck in a rut of having the same old snack/lunch.

luv the tat! ;)

Melissa said...

My favorite quick snack is a pria bar or some good fresh fruit! I'm not sure why, but I keep eying up the pirate's booty, and then always walk by... maybe I'll have to try it!

Anne Marie said...

I love Pirate's Booty-it's a wonderful snack! My fav quick snack is a fiber one bar or a piece of fruit.

hbobier said...

I love that they sent you a temp tattoo!! Awesome.

Angharad said...

Ok, when your title said booty I definitely had my mind in the gutter! Not what I was expecting! I love those chips - haven't tried that flavour though, sounds a little crazy to me!

Alisa said...

Seriously awesome package! So clever.

Megan D said...

Ok next time I'm in Charleston I WILL track down one of those parfaits! Yummm!

Mallory @ Little Miss Locavore said...

Mmmm... Pirates Booty is pretty yummy. I haven't had any of the flavors, just the original kind.

The Blonde Duck said...

I've been obsessed with chips lately. I wonder if they have Pirates booty here.

BroccoliHut said...

Love the cute treasure chest of snacks! I always rely on good ol' trail mix for a quick, healthy snack.

We Are Not Martha said...

Happy staycation!!! I am obsessed with Pirate's Booty, but I had no idea they had different flavors! Awesome package :)

Your parfait looks fabulous, too!

Sues

Diana @ frontyardfoodie said...

haha what an adorable box! I've never tried Pirates Booty but it sure looks fun to me.

Maria said...

Apples are my go to snack. I eat at least one every day!

Does Medifast Work said...

How fun would that be to receive. Is this going to be a new chip that I can keep an I out for? Love the tattoo, cute.

the actor's diet said...

that parfait looks epic! love the pirates booty - i still use my "treasure chest" to store all the snacks my husband is not allowed to touch b/c i have to review them!

CaSaundraLeigh said...

Ahh pirate's are so much fun--what a exciting package to get :-)
