Yeah for Friday! It hasn’t been a stressful week but I am always excited to see Friday roll around! I’m even more excited to see January END! Though February has always been my least favorite month! We are also supposed to get another dumping of snow this weekend! Oh joy!
This weekend is a bit busier but it’s all filled with wonderful and fun things including a Superbowl party and a much needed haircut on Sunday! Here is just a handful of things I have been loving lately!
As someone who has blogged about KIND in the past I was thrilled when the folks at KIND wanted to send me some of their newest product! KIND Healthy Grains Bars are all natural granola bars made from ingredients you can see and pronounce. Each perfectly chewy-with-a-crunch bar is gluten free and packs more than one full serving of whole grains (think amaranth, millet, and quinoa), which provides fiber and protein. They are lower in calories and fat than other KIND bars which make them the perfect late morning or afternoon snack! Hubs and I took one to the movies this week and we were both quite happy! Perfectly chewy and satisfying, they make a great snack!
I bought apple/Asian pears as Costco over the weekend and they are sensational! So juicy! Been loving them and will be going back this weekend to get more! Anyone else loving these fiber filled seasonal fruits?
3) Have you guys heard of Lesser Evil snacks?
Run, don’t walk to get these amazing chips and snack that are available at many stores and on Amazon.com! Lesser Evil uses black beans and organic popcorn as bases. I was sent samples of their Super 4 Crunchy Bean Chips and their Chia Crisps
Super 4 Comes in 3 great flavors and they all packed with the four main ingredients: White Bean, Quinoa, Lentil and Chia!
Their Chia Crisps come in four great flavors:
Feta and Black Olive
Crunchy Dill Pickle
Jalapeno White Cheddar
I was thrilled to find out that so many stores around me have Lesser Evil! What flavor sounds best to you? Want more? I’ve got a giveaway coming for Lesser Evil VERY SOON!
4) I made these Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Peanut Butter Banana Bites on Wednesday night!
The recipe is coming next week when I do ANOTHER Peanut Butter & Co. giveaway!
5) I’ve been working hard to achieve my 2014 Running Goal of 2014km!
I broke some records this month according to RunKeeper and finished January strong! I’m pretty excited about the miles I covered (running on my treadmill.) I’m also proud that in addition to the miles I ran I have been going The Daily Method 3 days week! How was your January?
