Taking a Break

Hey loves!

I took a break over the weekend and yesterday to just step away from the blogging world. I was in it all last week and I knew my brain just needed a break. It still does, but I thought I would pop in and blog just a little.

Friday we headed over to Costco and Earthfare to do a little grocery shopping…and we also stopped at Jason’s Deli to devour their salad bar.

Look, their salad bar rocks…its got all kind of stuff.

And every time we go to Earthfare, we get a cold Zevia to drink on the way back home. It’s just a thing.

Saturday I decided to spend my weekend eating clean whole foods…and that is what I did.

I started with a spinach, kale and banana smoothie and then a really good workout!

Lunch I had yogurt and almond butter with apple slices.

Then I took my sister to Forever 21 to find her a dress for homecoming.

When I got back my older sister and her husband were at the house.

While everyone else was eating hot dogs, I ate broccoli, eggs, peas, and onions topped with sauerkraut

 

Sunday, I started with another green smoothie

Hey y’all!

We got ready for church (I BROUGHT OUT THE BOOTS!!!) Oh yeahhhIMG_20130922_094904

Church was just so, so, so powerful Sunday. So happy I was there!

Lunch/dinner was pretty great…mostly the same at Saturday’s except no egg, but chicken!

So not a super special weekend or anything except I’m quite proud of myself eating so clean over those two days. I’m actually still doing it because I began to feel so good from all the veggies, fruits, and good proteins, no packaged crap.

I’m still drinking green smoothies and eating lighter. Except I might have had my fair share of almonds.

Anyway, you all have a great Tuesday!

Questions:

  • What did you do over the weekend?
  • What’s your go-to-throw-together-in-a-bowl meal?
  • Do you ever take a break from the blog world?

I Love Crackers! (Review)

Happy What I Ate Wednesday!

Okay, you guys…I love Crunchmaster. They are certified gluten free and delicious!

I’ve been eating these –>

…for so long! Like 2.5 years. Ever since we started going to Costco. We tried them once, and haven’t let go since. We have yet to get tired of them.

Anyway, I reached out to the company a while ago, telling them how much I love their crackers. Little did I know, they had so many other flavors. AH! What?

When they e-mailed me, they asked me which ones I’d love to try.

I asked for these…

I couldn’t wait to try these crackers so, I obviously I had to taste test them all (throughout a few days though). I started with the 7 Ancient Grains first. I loved these! Most definitely my favorite out of all!

7 ancient grains

We took these on our Beach Trip and ate them all in no time with some chicken salad!

  • These are not too salty (just a hint of sea salt)
  • They have the best ingredients! There are only like 6-8 ingredients and its mostly things like: Quinoa, brown rice, sesame, etc. So I recommend these for clean eaters!
  • The taste is perfect, not to overwhelming!

grammy crisps

  • These are great for those times when you need a sweet crunchy treat.
  • Great with coffee
  • Great dipped in chocolate
  • Reminds me of Cinnamon Toast Crunch

I definitely liked the Grammy Crisps, these would be my second favorite!

Hmm, I’m a little iffy on these Cheezy Crisps. I like them but not crazy about them.  So, I asked the family what they thought!

  • My 13 year old sister said she LOVES them! (So I’m guessing kids are going to enjoy these!)
  • She also LOVES the Grammy Crisps. (yes, LOVES is what she said)
  • My mom thought they were delicious!
  • My dad thought they were okay

I actually really like these White Cheddar multi grain crackers! They don’t taste too cheezy which I like…

  • Tastes yummy with hummus or with a piece of cheese on top (cheese overload!)
  • Also tastes great with jalapenos! (MMM, cream cheese would be good too, Laughing Cow!)

These are definitely my next favorite!

  • Not too veggie tasting, just the right amount!
  • Yummy with cheese and hummus!
  • Great to add to a meal or pour in a bowl for snacking before dinner!

 

I really liked the Roasted vegetable so I recommend these for sure!

So, this is a little different on my WIAW, but I thought it would be fun!
