WIAW 7/9 + Quest Bar Giveaway {CLOSED}

Happy What I Ate Wednesday, foodies and readers!

It’s funny to me how quickly WIAW comes around…but hey, it’s completely fine with me because it might be my favorite day. So, thanks to Jenn for hosting!

Peas and Crayons

So, last night I had the pleasure of running some crazy trails at Red Mountain Park with Alabama Outdoors, and let me tell you. Trails are growing on me. I need more! The only problem with that, is that all the nearest trails are between 20-30 minutes from my house. I did see a tepee at Red Mountain Park…I could possibly move in? Yes? Okay, maybe not such a good idea. Alright, moving on!

Yesterday, if you read my post, I was having a difficult time finding something to eat for breakfast because there were NO bananas! Almost everything I eat for breakfast has a banana in it and I really wanted a banana. So, I ended up just eating like 1/2 cup of coconut chia granola cereal with almond milk and some pecans (with a sad face).


Speaking of pecans, you know you’re supposed to soak them? We’ve been soaking our pecans lately and let me tell you, they taste way better.

Tuna Salad

For lunch, I had tuna salad (posted the recipe on instagram), organic blue corn chips, and 1/2 Fuji apple that tasted SO GOOD.

From lunch and until 4:30, I was in the kitchen baking! I made my Paleo Coconut Flour Cupcakes but I added more liquid and brown rice flour to the recipe to thin out and create more batter so I could get more cupcakes! Also, I added some chocolate chips and my lemon vanilla icing<—recipe also on my instagram!

By 5:45, I was at the park and ready to run trails. We didn’t get through until 7 and we stayed a while and talked. Then when we got home which was about 8:00 p.m., food was not on my mind. I don’t know about you, but eating a meal at 8:00 at night, is not very fun to me. So, I ate nothing. Boo me. Yeah, whatever. I survived! I’m ready to devour the whole kitchen. Okay, kidding. That would be rude.

But, you know what would have been good last night? A quest bar!

Which leads me to…THE GIVEAWAY!

I’m so happy that Quest Nutrition wanted to team up with me to let me give 2 of my readers a chance to both win a 16 bar sampler pack!









I’ll have the winners on Friday!

Have a great day everyone!

    I’m the same way with bananas and breakfast…running out of them is the worst! Throws my whole morning off.
    Trail running is wicked fun (and super challenging!) – I definitely prefer it over road running.

    Being banana-less is a serious case for emergency grocery runs in my house. I’m currently left with two and feeling a serious need to stock up again.
    I’ve seen many interesting Quest bar dessert recipes like cheesecake cookie cups which I’d really like to try.

    Running out of bananas is a terrible thing indeed 😦 Those cupcakes look insane, by the way!
    Also, these questbars look amaaaaaazing. I’d love to win – is the contest open worldwide? xx

    What an awesome giveaway! Thanks for hosting! 🙂
    Also, I love that coconut chia granola! It’s also one of my go-to’s when I don’t know what else to have. I can’t wait to make your icing. I think it would be great on a mugcake!

    Although I have lived in the US before I still get surprised when I hear dinner at 6 pm or 7pm. Here in Spain we have very different eating schedules and we can even have dinner at 10pm and be totally normal! However, I am kind of a weirdo because I have dinner really early when my family is still having an afternoon snack!!
    Quest bars for me are perfect at anytime but I enjoy them most as a special treat and I would definitely make my next birthday cake out of them!!!

    I would use my Quest bars for refueling after weight lifting, especially after I pop em in the microwave for few seconds :).

    THOSE CUPCAKES!!! Those cuppy cakes! OMG I must chow down on ALL OF THEM!!!!!! YES 🙂 I made some cake balls today – totally would have been good BAKED – they probably would have turned into cupcakes like these!!! NEXT TIME 🙂

  8. Bridget says:

    I’ve been getting into trail running, too! Love it! I don’t think I could skip dinner after a run… My tummy is growling just thinking about it!

  9. Julia Hansen says:

    I LOVE QUEST BARS!!! They r the bomb.com…..I love how they r the perfect snack, and have such great macros 🙂

    Quest bars are easy to keep in my car for snacking on when I’m out and about or commuting. They don’t get messy when warm like other bars do!
