It’s a Wednesday’s Eating party, ekhm, I mean – What I Ate Wednesdays! Today is a record of yesterday (Tuesday’s) eats! Yum. I have absolutely nothing else to say so I’m gonna dig right in today’s eats and the later review of these awesome Seed and Fruit mixes.
Fitness: In the morning upon waking, I went down to the gym (even though I totally didn’t feel like it this morning) and I did a weight training session on my legs and glutes. It could have gone better, I could have pushed harder but I didn’t. I wasn’t feeling it. I totally am glad I went and felt better afterwards anyway. In the evening, I went to my neighborhood gym to do some slow cardio on an elliptical while reading a book.
8:40am- PB&J Protein Shake but a small variation of it that ended up tasting even better. Mmm
9:30am: Raspberry Green Tea right before internship
11:30am: Journey’s Bar Coconut Curry. It was… interesting. Not as bad as I expected but I definitely prefer my sweet bars. (for some reason my phone ate my photos I took till up until December… so yeah.. that’s fun)
12:30pm: Think Thin Crunchy Chocolate Dipped Nuts Trial size bar
3:30pm: Veggie salad with goat cheese and currants. I’ve been obsessed with adding goat cheese to my salads lately.
6:30pm: Chocolate Coconut Protein Shake. It was alright but needs some tweaking before I can post the recipe up.
8pm: Cocoa mixed Greek yogurt topped with fresh cherries and Enjoy Life ‘Beach Bash‘ Seed and Fruit mix.
A bit more about the topping on the above…
Enjoy Life is a company I trust to always deliver great allergy-friendly products. Every product I have tried by this company has been awesome and left me wanting to run out and get more. The ‘not nuts! Seed and Fruit Mix’ is no exception.This mix has been created with people in mind who are allergic to nuts and wish they could use it more often in yogurts and other concoctions, or just plain straight out of the bag. This mix includes various seeds and fruits, the two variations I tried were the Beach Bash (which includes Raw Sunflower Kernels, Pineapple, Roasted Hulled Pumpkin Seeds, Cranberries, Apricots)…
…and Mountain Mambo (which includes Raw Sunflower Kernels, Roasted Hulled Pumpkin Seeds, Raisins, Dried Apples, Chocolate Chips, Cranberries). These products have been around for a while but they have recently created new fresh packaging.
I have to admit I am not a huge seed eater. I don’t even actually eat nuts that often either. But I enjoyed eating these salty, sweet, and slightly crunchy mixes in my yogurt parfaits. I used it yesterday in the parfait you saw above. I also liked it in this Pumpkin Spice Arctic Zero protein ice cream concoction with drizzled vanilla Lifeway Kefir and the Mountain Mambo ‘Seed and Fruit Mix’ on top to give it a more of an Autumn feel. You already know I can’t wait till Fall… 😉
Similarly to their other products, these Seed and Fruit mixes contain no trans fat, no artificial additives or preservatives, and are made from allergy-friendly and gluten free, natural ingredients. You can like their Facebook Page or follow them on Twitter to stay updated.
