WIAW& Day 3 of Spring into Running Giveaway!

Special thanks to Jenn for hosting another great week of WIAW!  Let’s get started because we’ve also got another great giveaway to talk about!

What I Ate Wednesday: Love Your Veggies

After a fast run and a Tabata Bootcamp workout, I devoured breakfast which was my yummy protein chia power bites topped with greek yogurt and a dash of cinnamon!  Don’t worry, that recipe is coming TOMORROW!!  Sadly, this was the last of them!  I’ve got to whip up another batch soon!


Snack time, Sara and I split an AWESOME BAR!


Let me tell you about Awesome Bars!  Here is snack that all three of us have been enjoying!  I had my first one last week, the Cranberry Trail Mix Awesome bar. I literally found myself saying out loud, “these are awesome.”  I’m not kidding!  Awesome Bars are all natural ingredients!  Want to see what’s in their bars?  Click here to read their nutrition facts. Awesome Bars are made and with love in San Francisco and created by two sisters.  Chef Leah Melnik (AKA, Master of Awesome) and her sister, Stephanie (AKA, Director of Awesome).

Moving onto lunch, was another kitchen creation that I made over the weekend.

Check out this tasty black bean and butternut squash soup I made!  Don’t worry, I’ll have that recipe for you guys as well!!  I like to top my soup with some greek yogurt and some cilantro!  YUMMY!  Did I mention it’s 25˚ here today and windy!


Snacks today were boring and re-cycled but I had another juicy Cara Cara and Pink Lady apple!

Dinner tonight was a big play date with my friends!  I whipped up the hummus chicken for us mama’s and a fun and colorful pasta dish for the kids!
