When I got home today, there was a package waiting for me on the kitchen counter. I didn’t remember ordering anything, so I was a little surprised, but when I opened it, I found that the Gnu Bar fairy (ok, really it was the lovely Robyn from Gnu Foods) had come and left me a very generous present! Inside was this beautiful box full of 5 different kinds of bars:
I of course, immediately tore into a Peanut Butter bar. While it didn’t exactly taste like peanut butter, it was pleasantly sweet and had a fantastic chewy texture. It was also SUPER satisfying! I was ravenous on my way home from work, and this bar kept me completely satisfied for nearly 3 hours, a major feat. Using the nutrition facts, I was also able to calculate that each of these bars has a mere Points® Value of 2, which is a bargain! When Adam got home, he wanted a cinnamon raisin bar. He said:
“I would highly recommend this bar! It tastes like an oatmeal raisin cookie with a good amount of cinnamon. I like that its soft, and for only 2 Points®, it’s definitely the best bar out there!”
I would say there’s a rave review so far! I’ll be having a cranberry orange one for breakfast tomorrow to help keep me away from the “Pig Out” foods in the lounge. Once a month, a team of teachers brings in a plethora of foods for everyone to share… usually not too healthy, and I’m DETERMINED to absolutely NOT pig out!
Dinner was über boring. We had leftovers from last night’s dinner, the Zesty Italian pot roast. It was, if possible, even better today! In case you forgot what it looked like, here’s the pot roast:
I also had a (non-photographed) carrot with peanut butter since I was low on veggies for the day. I’ll probably have a Dark Ferraro Rocher for dessert during Grey’s Anatomy.
OH! I also want to give a big thank you to my friend Julie over at Flip This Body for the shout out today! I’m so glad you liked the recipe site 🙂 Also, a huge thank you for all the well-wishes. So far this antibiotic seems to be working well, and I’m finally feeling like myself again!
QOTD: How do you avoid overeating at free food events? I almost always try the “eat before I get there” thing, but then I just end up eating twice. Any hints for me?
