Hi Readers 🙂
I’d like to thank the following bloggers for introducing me to the following:
Allie: Dates + Nut butter
Heather: Protein Ice Cream
Megan: Pecan Pie Babies
Averie: Raw Vegan Rum Balls
They look a lot like the Pecan Pie Babies, but let me assure you they taste WAY different.
I saw these posted on Averie’s blog last week and I must say they looked absolutely delicious. J has a deep love for rum, so I knew I had to make them. If you know me you know that I am not a vegan and I do not eat many raw foods – but these are a must try. I only made a small batch (portion control!). My Magic Bullet did a pretty good job grinding up the raisins and dates, but there were still a few chunks in each ball. 🙂
Last night I finally got a good workout in. With last weekend being so busy and crazy, I really let my workouts fall to the wayside. I got in a great 20 min HIIT TurboFire workout, plus some FBB strength training. Strength is the way to go!
And I had time to get to TJ’s. The closest location is about 10 minutes away, but with road construction it takes over 20. It could be worse, but it still can be a hassle making time to get out there. Check out the goods:
Sweet taters, chicken sausage, organic baby spinach, peanut flour (!), raisins, dates, brown rice pasta, choc chips, raw trail mix, cashews
All this for $50! Why do I even bother shopping anywhere else?
I wanted to stay awake for RHoNJ but I am just too tired! Sleep needs to be a bigger priority for me, I was just dragging all day long today…
1. What is your favorite treat/meal that you found on another blog? (if it is your own recipe, include a link!)
2. Do you have a Trader Joe’s near you? What are your favorite products?
3. Did you watch RHoNJ? Should I watch the rerun or skip it?
Have a great day!
