Plans Foiled Again

I feel like every time I mention that I’m planning on making something for dinner, or for lunch, something happens and I end up not making what I said I was going to. Yesterday for lunch, I thought I was clever in coming up with this lovely little lunch that was going to be whipped together in the tiny kitchen there. Well, foiled again.

I ended up having lunch brought to the office yesterday, and my little mixings just sat in the lunch box next to my desk. So, I ended up having some DELICIOUS lasagna, a caesar salad and some garlic bread. YUMMY.

 

The killer is the desserts that they always bring along. Yesterday was this delicious White Chocolate Mouse, and today a Banana Delight Cake. I resisted though.

The mixings for lunch made its way home and ended up being dinner. I made a mini pizza with left over pasta sauce and some mozzarella cheese on an english muffin. Not too creative of a dinner, but it would have been AWESOME for a lunch on the go.

Morning

This morning I was up and running at 530. I had a meeting that I had to get to out in Melbourne first thing in the AM. The only thing I could bring myself to have that early was some coffee. I’m not really in the mood to eat anything substantial at that time. I grabbed one of the To You Snack bars and headed out the door.

 

Seriously. This mint chocolate chip granola bar was unlike anything I have ever had. It was delicious. I can’t even really describe it. Make sure you send your entry for Sizzle Wars in soon! Because you could have a whole case of these guys 🙂

For the rest of the day I’ve got some work to get finished and a meeting at 130 I’ve got to get to ASAP.

 

Hope your Wednesday’s are going well!!

 

Would you rather have a busy day that you are running out the door and going all day or a relaxed day that you have nothing planned??

 

Honestly, I need something planned for the day to get me going. I would much rather be running around crazy than sitting in front of the TV. So I try make sure I have something to get done each day to motivate me to get going. 🙂

 

 

To You Snacks!

I have something really exciting to announce/share with you this lovely Friday afternoon. A few weeks ago I had been looking for a fun new snack to give a go when I came across To You Snacks. To You Snacks is a trail mix and snack bar company that uses all natural nuts, berries and ingredients to make a healthy snack that’s easily portable. Initially I was excited to just give them a try because as we all know, I LOVE trying new things. BUT, I was even more excited to find out that they were local 🙂

So, naturally I shot them and email just to find out some more info. WHELP, I finally met with the owners, who are absolutely delightful. They are originally from Mexico and have been making snacks for just about 15 years. They are both avid water skiers and I just found out runners too! Ergo, To You Snack Bars are aimed to fuel the active lifestyle and cater to that high protein, low sugar need.

BUT! That’s not the best part. So, they have a whole bunch of different bars that you can choose from including:

Mango Yogurt

Apricot Coconut

Chocolate Cranberry

Goji Berry

Peanut Butter and Cranberry

Apple Pecan

And a whole bunch more. If for some crazy reason, these don’t catch your eye…you have the option to MAKE YOUR OWN. Yup. Email them and just provide a list of all the different ingredients you want in your bar. They will then shoot you back an email with the nutritional facts for your bar, just to get your approval. If you want more protein, or less carbs or anything else, you can adjust the ingredients. OR, just say okay. They will make the bars and ship them right to you. COOOL. Call it…the Sizzle Bar. I think it has a ring to it…

Anyways, if you couldn’t guess…that’s what my snack was today 🙂 I had the Whitney McClintock Bar (bet you can’t guess who made it!) which is packed with Berries, Almonds, Mango and Yogurt.

It was delicious. Think trail mix packed into an easy to eat little bar and that’s the flavor. No added sugars. Not crazy sweet. Simple and delicious.

Anyways, To You Snacks has something else crazy fun to offer. The PRIZE FOR SIZZLE WARS! So the winner of Sizzle Wars is going to get a box of assorted To You Snacks to give a go.

A box contains 14 snack bars and trail mix. I’m really excited 🙂 And just to mention, they are Gluten Free and Vegan friendly (if you omit the chocolate or yogurt chips).

So this is your 1 week mark reminder to get your Sizzle Wars Entry in by the 21st! All you need to do is shoot me an email with your Childhood Favorite Recipe along with a Picture to SizzleEats@gmail.com. Easy enough 🙂 Have a fantastic rest of your Friday!

What’s your favorite snack bar?? What are the ingredients in it that make it so good?? What would you put in your personal bar and what would you call it??

Mine would have raspberries, almonds, pecans, dark chocolate bits and some chia seeds 🙂 Let’s call it…The Tummy Rumble Cure

Haha I’m terrible at coming up with names…HELP.
