None of that really makes any sense. It’s just a hint of what’s to come on this post, haha! A breakfast cookie Larabar, quite frankly, would just be too good to be true :).
This, however, is both good AND true.
A lovely strawberry coconut breakfast cookie! Oats, peanut buttah, hemp protein powder, coconut, yogurt + water (ran out of milk), strawberries and this time I added 1 tbsp. of flax to it too. Shoutout to Keith for reminding me to buy this wonder ingredient!
Unfortunately for some reason, as much as I love my breakfast cookies, they don’t quite feel filling to me. I know I am definitely getting enough calories (400-500 depending on the cookie) that I should feel more satiated than I do, but I don’t know. Has anyone else had this problem? Let me know dudes!
No worries, however, because mid-morning I hung out with one of my favorite Laras.
She’s most definitely on the top 5 list :).
Lunch brought me a goodie that I have been dying to find (which I finally did at our friend WF)…Sunshine Burger in Falafel! OMG – this burger is soooo good, especially if you are a falafel fiend like myself. Unfortunately, my mustard flower art didn’t turn out at pretty as the PB art, but no worries because it tasted just as good. Those MN grown tomatoes are also the best thing eva – I never used to like tomatoes, but now these are like poppin’ candy to me!
Here are the stats on our friend, the Sunshine Burger Falafel Patty…
And here are the all-organic ingredients…
Raw ground sunflower seeds
Sesame seed paste
That’s it! Amazing, no?
After lunchie, it was a fabulous 30-minute walk outside in the cool weather.
Afternoon coffee you ask? Of course not! I’m cutting down my consumption with the help of Senor No Meat Athlete – it’s a cup of lovely organic black tea with milk and sugar, an idea I stole from Eating for England. You see, Miss Angharad just started her blog last week so show her some bloggy love by heading over to her site for lots of yummy eats and British treats!
Snackytime was the usual combo – yogurt + TJ’s blueberry muesli + raspberries. Simple and delish!
The weather is cool and cloudy – not the best weather to perk yourself up on a Monday. I’m going to have to muster all the energy I can to get my buns to the gym before The Bachelorette starts at 7pm – I’m officially addicted! Tonight is the hometown visits, so it should make for some interesting/good dramz on ABC.
Stay tuned for dinner – I think I got something good brewing ;).
