Hope everyone had a fabulous Monday! 🙂

I had a serious case of the munchies today! I’m SO not allowed to keep almonds in my desk drawer at work anymore–I can go days and days without eating them, but it only takes 1 look sometimes and I could devour the whole can. I didn’t…but I definitely could have! I think I’ll start taking them in little individual servings from now on.

Lunch today was yummy–turkey and mixed veggies

This weekend I got an AWESOME package from Cherrybrook Kitchen

“The sweet solution for food allergies.” All of their products are Peanut Free-Dairy Free-Egg Free-Nut Free.

I decided last night I’d try the Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix–I can never get enough cookies and they were calling my name! I didn’t want to make the whole box because I was pretty sure a lot of them would end up going to waste so I ended up just using half of the box and adjusting the ingredients which wasn’t hard, all I had to add was

  • Organic Smart Balance
  • Water

See…not hard at all which is just the way I like it!

I set the oven at 375 and plopped some dough on the pan to bake for 8-10 minutes

I said it was simple BUT for some reason they came out a BIT wattery–I still had hope they’d turn out great!

Ok, so they didn’t come out looking thick and fluffy–they looked more like chocolate chip pancakes really. But they DID turn out to be delicious…and very light! lol

I can’t wait to try the other mixes!

Today was a quick trip to the gym because we had to get to the grocery store as well so I did:

  • 15 min Eliptical on resistence 8
  • 5 min run on Treadmill
  • 10 min Stair Master

It was quick but sweaty so I was happy!

This was Green Smoothie today. As you can see it was not so green–I ran out of bananas and used some mixed frozen berries.

  • Almond Milk
  • Berries
  • Oats
  • Spinach

Sounds like it’d be good, right? Well it tasted kind of how it looked, if you know what I mean,  so I got through half and dumped it. Luckily we made the trip to the store so I’ll have yummy banana tomorrow!

Off to bed I go! Have a great night! 🙂
