Today's Samples

Thanks to the cooking spree, I didn't have to do much grocery shopping this week. I started the day with a Soy Joy bar of the berry variety. The taste reminded me a little bit of a nutri-grain bar but with real fruit bits in it. For 130 calories, 4g of protein, and 3 grams of fiber, it was a pretty good thing to grab on the go. I might be buying some more of these.

For a mid-morning snack I had 2 Pamela's Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cookies. Ohh how I loved these. Over the summer I had picked up two boxes of Pamela's Peanut Butter cookies and I hated them, they were flat and soft and not good at all. These were the real deal. Delicious and 80% organic!

This afternoon I snacked on some Food Should Taste Good Jalapeno flavored chips. They were pretty good, although I'm still a bigger fan of the Buffalo flavor. I tried most of their flavors last night and they were all very good. I really like looking at the ingredients list and seeing just a few, easily recognizeable ingredients. All nautural tastes so good! I love when I go back to the non-all-natural stuff and it tastes gross. I had some Cool Ranch Doritos with my lunch yesterday and I really could've gone without them.

No photos today, I think I posted enough of those yesterday! The wedding is now less than two weeks away and if you noticed my latest flickr upload, you can probably tell that I'm not at all happy with where I'm at weight wise. But I realize after doing that timeline that it's mostly the medication and it's out of my hands at this point. All I can do is eat as healthy as possible and get my exercise in and just wait until The Doc gives me the OK to ditch the steroids. I think I'm going to start taking Aprovechar's approach to things, she seems to have gotten it right!
