Look at this mess, right? Coconut butter has become a new favorite of mine. Now I don’t eat it every day although I’d love to but I do enjoy it on the weekends! On some Udi’s Gluten free toast with a little no sugar added jam, heavenly!
We went shopping on Sunday at Sam’s Club and the kids were hungry and wanted pizza. The one disadvantage when shopping with kids at Sam’s, if they eye spy it, they want it. As a mom who was feeling lazy on Sunday and not interested in the long ride home with whiny children I gave in. I don’t eat white flour pizza but it sure looked good, but just look at the nice salad they had there! I was totally impressed! It was a spinach salad with sides to top over; pecans, feta, dried pears and balsamic dressing! I was perfectly happy!
The other day when we had school vacation I had some friends over. One of my good friends who knows what ingredients I will and won’t eat, stopped at Whole Foods on the way over. Look at this giant delicious cookie she brought me! Not only was it fantastic, it was sweetened with brown rice syrup, score! It was 7 Weight Watchers Points + so I waited for the weekend to have it and it was totally worth every point!
So this little protein bar wasn’t right after that cookie, it was about a few hours later while doing work at the computer. And it was awesome chocolate peanut butter and full of protein. It’s sweetened with erythritol and does have a whey protein blend in it. So it’s not gluten free or milk free but I ate it to see how my stomach would react. Yes I’ve been wheat free since the new year and since it’s been 2 months and was told by a blood test I don’t have a wheat or gluten allergy I wanted to try. No issues at all and I was happy about that! Have you tried these bars?
On my menu I had planned a new recipe. I saw this idea watching Giada and adapted it, Savory flourless egg crepes! No flour in there at all! Baked and stuffed with cheese and topped with marinara and …..OH MY incredible! I will be posting the recipe soon!
I didn’t even bother to get a clean plate after the crepes and just ate some of the Parmesan crusted chicken with carrots, ranch and topped with a few slices of avocado, yummy dinner indeed!
Sunday night is often a nice movie night with the kids. Popcorn is involved. I may or may not have shared that giant bowl. Just saying.
