The Good, The Strange, and the Chocolate

Well here I am back at you at only 10:30 PM.  I've been going, going, and going all day long and it's almost time to have a date with my hubby since we haven't seen each other since 7:00 AM this morning!  Let's rewind to some of my eats:

The Good:
The return of the snack platter!  Pink Lady apple, organic red bell pepper, organic sliced carrots, and natural PB.
Different sources of protein- Trader Joe's organic cottage cheese with cinnamon and almonds (love, love, love and had seconds!)

The Strange:

Trader Joe's Natural Jalapeno Chicken Sausage on Sprouted Wheat bread and sugar snap pea fries.  No idea why I ate this, but it was strangely good. 

The Chocolate
Easily filling in for the snack of the day, I had chocolate- um, twice.  First I had these two bite size pieces with a side of calculator:

Then I had another couple of pieces at home with a side of swiffer sweeper in my kitchen:
I can't help it, I'm female and chocolate rules my life sometimes.  I needed the fuel to cook up some meals for the week:
Roasted sweet potatoes with orange chicken stirfry
Roasted Asparagus
My beloved Brussels and more sweet potatoes

Don't forget to enter my contest HERE !

Got a question?  Ask me anything here!

Finally, Starbucks will be sampling free Peeled Snacks this Friday, February 26th.  I'm gonna hit up the 'bucks in my building at work for some!

See you kids soon!

Andrea @Celery In The City said...

how do you roast your brussel sprouts? I've only tried them steamed and they were just okay...but the healthy benefits make me want to find a stellar recipe to put into heavy rotation :)
