Snackfest 2010!

Hi Guys!  Happy Friday!  I think I posted in my last post that if you lose track of me I would be passed out in my kitchen from cookie and trailmix overdose.  That hasn't happened (yet) but I've been making a dent in my stash:

First I tried this bar:

'Twas fabulous.  Thanks again Katie!  In addition to this, I spent a very leisurely 11 hour day at work yesterday meeting a deadline.  I needed an extra snack and broke into my work's trailmix and made myself an iced coffee:
Between having a long day and delaying dinner, I had a bit of a snackapalooza.  Stuff happens and there's nothing we can do right?  I ended up going to the gym to meet my hubby for a date at 9:15 and spent an hour on the treadmill doing jog-incline walk intervals.  It was great and stress-busting!

This morning I started out with a fabulous breakfast pancake:


-1/2 cup oats, 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, 1 eggwhite, baking powder, Chia seeds, cacao powder, and a banand.  My frosting is vanilla Greek yogurt and 1 Tbsp almond butter.  It was amazing! 

I've been up and working from home since 6:30 so I'm heading out for a lunchtime gym session!  See ya'll later- maybe even today :)  I've got some working, baking, and cleaning to do before our friends come over!

That looks like a great breakfast pancake. I especially love the ingredients - very low carb/high protein! I like that in a breakfast because too many carbs leave me feeling tired and hungry soon after :/

Breakfast pancake looks delicious! I've got to get on the chia seed train, they sound like they're the best thing since sliced bread. Do you find that they are worth buying?

Work, baking, and cleaning...yep, sounds like my weekends!! I love them though, because I'm a nerd who LOVES to clean and back :) I think you do too...right?! But eleven hour work days over the weekend, well, that's NOT fun. Glad you had the iced coffee and trailmix to give you that nice little boost. And, that pancake looks AMAZING.

Have a great Sunday!
