Raw goodies and SHRED!

Hi guys! Hope you're as excited as I am for the weekend to finally be here.

So yesterday I had to attend an all day regional work meeting. It was nice to get out of the office for a day and see old friends. I wasn't too sure what kind of food choices they would have tho. So I chugged a green smoothie before I left the house at 9:30. I knew it would keep me filled up for a few hours. I purposely switched to one of my huge purses for the day so I could stuff it with snacks. What, I'm the only who does this? I packed bananas, almonds + raisins + pumpkin seeds, and some raw crackers. (more on that in a bit) Mid way through the meeting some nice ladies put out a fruit bowl and I grabbed a juicy, green apple. Why are some apples so crunchy this time of year and others are mush inside?? This one was perfect.

I came home from the meeting and found this on my doorstep!

I placed an order through Amazon the other day because I had my eye on a couple raw goodies! I've been wanting to try Lydia's Organic Crackers and Righteously Raw chocolate. I was so excited to get this package!!

I wish I still had some of this chocolate left. Sadly, I do not. I can't wait to try the other flavors. The crackers are different...not bad different, just....different. I think the taste/texture will grow on me. They are very light and airy and of course even better with almond butter smeared on them.

Tonight we grabbed some dinner with our good friend, Kate.

My hubby's been hooked on Thai food lately so we found a new spot to try out..I've heard how good green papaya salad is so I knew I wanted to order it. The menu said this dish was simply shredded green papaya, carrots, chili, lime juice, tomatoes, and peanuts.

I ordered it with every intention of sharing it with the table...but I sorta hogged it all. :) Seriously, it was so delicious, I could eat it all day. It was sweet and spicy, and super refreshing. I'm so happy I ordered it and want to try to recreate it soon. I also ordered their vegetarian dish of just assorted stir fried veggies, no tofu, with a side of their special peanut sauce. These veggies were still slightly crunchy and very fresh.

And finally............I decided I wanted to try a home workout DVD. This one came highly recommended by a friend so I went right out and picked it up.

She kicked my butt this morning. In only 20 minutes. And the entire time, in my pain and exhaustion, I was keeping myself motivated singing "What have you done make you feel proud?"

Biggest Loser finale this Tuesday!!!

Do you order from Amazon? I love it and find new things all the time I want. Especially books!

  1. So I'm guessing the chocolate was good?! I want to try some!

    Glad you liked the SHRED dvd! Isn't it crazy how tired you are after just 20 minutes?! I love it though.
