WIAW: Food and Cocktails

Happy hump day! I am keeping up my tradition with another What I Ate Wednesday Post. This is my food journal for Tuesday May 28th.

Breakfast: 8:00 am

Special K Fruit and Yogurt with fresh blueberries and skim milk and a cup of Butter Toffee coffee.

Lunch: 10:45 am

Mango Chobani with fresh raspberries…..

grape tomatoes with hommus, and I also had some fresh watermelon that was not photographed. These little bite size tomatoes are so juicy and they explode in your mouth.

Snack: #1: 1:00

This was the first Clif Kid bar I have ever tried and I really enjoyed it. It’s about half the calories of the Clif bars I typically eat. I will definitely purchase more of these for snacks, but stick to my Clif bars for the occasional breakfast on the go!

Snack#2: 5:00

Remember those frozen fruit bars I bought at Trader Joe’s?

Well this past weekend when I saw my Aunt Patty, she told me about a recipe using these bars that a Trader Joe’s worker recommended. It sounded absolutely delicious and perfect for a hot sticky day. Bar+rum=heaven! With a splash of rum and my Magic Bullet I turned this….

…into this!

Oh wow! Talk about refreshing and hittin the spot on a hot hot day! I love finding creative ways to use the ingredients I have! Thank’s Auntie P!

Dinner: 7:00

I can’t remember when we went to the grocery store last, but when we did, we found this:

Buy one get one free! Those words are like magic to us. So tonight it was pork chops and applesauce for dinner.

I breaded the chops in these two: pork rub and bread crumbs.

On the side I microwaved a rice side and threw in some frozen veggies to beef it up.

TA DA!

Delish!

Question:

What is your favorite thing you have eaten this week?

      I know right?! I would never have thought to use them in a beverage form. Now I can’t wait to try out some new recipes with different flavor popsicle!

    Glad you liked the Clif Bar! Great idea to use the bigger ones for breakfast the the smaller for snacks. Totally doing it. :)

    Those fruit bars from TJ look so good! I love the idea of putting them into a blender and adding rum. That sounds so refreshing! :)

      The perfect summer treat, and the bars are only about 100 calories! Next time I will add some water or juice and get 2 drinks out of 1 bar.
