A GOOD day and Coupon Giveaway :)

22 Jul

Today was a GOOD day! 🙂  I started out the day with a super sweet breakfast.  I had light chocolate Silk soymilk, a cup of strawberry-chocolate Yoplus yogurt mousse (adapted from Julie), basically strawberry yogurt with a heaping spoon of chocolate yogurt powder mixed in- chocolate overload! But the yogurt mousse was REALLY good!  I really was planning on having an egg too, but I didn’t have time before I had to run off to teach my summer piano students.  I ate all this sweetness while I poured over my food blogs and found out the following good news:

–> I won a food blog giveaway  from Lil’ Veggie Patch for a $40.00 CSNstores.com giftcard!! Yay! I was SO excited!

As I mentioned, I ran off to teach piano lessons to two adorable little boys for and hour and a half, then ran back home for lunch. On the way home I ate one of these:

It’s a FiberOne 90 Calorie bar.  I picked up two boxes of them at Target because they were so freaking cheap!  Like $1.65 a box!

I got the Chocolate Peanut Butter flavor.  They’re just okay- flavor somehow reminds me of popcorn cakes with a little caramel and chocolate. They have chocolate chunks on top, and a pb icing on the bottom.  I didn’t really taste too much pb in there. 😦 I wouldn’t buy these again at regular price, but I might be tempted if I found them on clearance this cheap again!

When I got home I made this delicious salad with lots of leftovers:

Mixed spinach with tomatoes, cucumbers, boiled egg, garlic hummus, guacamole, green salsa and some chia sprinkled on top!

Hubby surprised me by asking for a salad too (He thinks salad is rabbit food). I also put a pound of dried chickpeas in my red crockpot to cook up for future hummus and chickpea recipes!  Mmmm….

After lunch I spent some time finishing laundry and mopping the floors.  Exciting, I know, but somebody’s gotta do it! The good thing is now the house smells clean and fresh!  I LOVE that smell of clean!

Around four I ran off to the gym for my strength training session- I worked on lower body exercises for about fifty minutes, then popped into an already in session Zumba class for about 15 minutes.  I always work up a sweat quickly in that class, and it really stretched out my sore muscles! I could feel every muscle in my legs and ankles as I salsa-ed it up for those 15 minutes!

I had a REALLY Green Monster when I came home from the gym, sprinkled chia on top.

It had 1 c. almond milk, 1/2 frozen banana, 4 frozen strawberries, 3/4 scoop vanilla whey protein powder, 2 handfuls of spinach. I sprinkled the top with chia. (I’m trying to figure out everyday uses for the seed. It might make a nice thickener in smoothies)

Now since today has been SO awesome for me, I’d like to make somebody’s day as well with my first giveaway!

It’s not much, but I have two booklets of great coupons for natural and organic products from Mambo Sprouts. They have some great coupons like $1 off Organic Clifkid Zbars, .50 cents off a thinkTHin bar, and $1 off of tofuplus.

If you’d like a chance to get 2 of these coupon booklets, all you have to do is post a comment on what food product you wish you had a coupon for!
