Holy yum are these carrot cake Larabars fantastic. Rebekah, you have changed my life. (And I’m not just talking about your incredibly inspiring posts, though those are, too 😛 )We’re going to have to have our own postal truck dedicated to the swappage of carrot cake larabars for yerba mate energy bars, I think.
This bar was fantastic!! The spice was spot-on, and I love that they went all out – and included raisins and pineapple. That’s what the best carrot cakes have, you know!! The only thing I would have done differently (since, you know, I’m cool enough to have a say in what Larabar does 😛 joking) would have been to have more carrot than pineapple. The carrot could stand to shine a little bit more 😉
Know what else words cannot describe? I always try to describe how scrumptious my breakfasts are – be it waffles or overnight oats – but I just don’t think words can do that.
I topped this morning’s overnight oats with:
- sunflower butter
- wheat germ
- goji granola
- ginger preserves
- marcona almonds
- and a nuked combo of a peach and blueberries, with some maple syrup and cinnamon
Work flew by today – we were so busy! I loved it…but I’m pretty beat now. I don’t think it helped that I did not get a good sleep last night, for whatever reason. I think I just tossed and turned all night! So I’m going to make this post short and sweet and cut to the chase!
Since I was busy all day, I pretty much grazed on a lot of the snacks I packed here and there, save for sitting down for lunch. These Chunks of Energy have quickly earned my affection. So good! I can’t wait to make more variations.
I also grazed on some homemade crackers. Obviously, this is a photo from yesterday. And forgive me for sounding like a broken record, but these have certainly earned my affection, as well. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to go back to boxed crackers!
And for lunch, I sat down to a panini with roasted broccoli and dark red kidney beans that I mashed with some feta cheese. Simple, but lovely…except, I think this bread was made differently from how they usually do. It just tastes a touch different and isn’t quite as chewy and moist. It is still by no means bad, just an observation I suppose.
Pretty sure I’ve eaten my fair share of stems, too.
Annnd, dinner was thrown together since I got home later than usual. Fun fact: I’m one of those people who thinks being late is being on time. On time is five minutes (at least) early. So tardiness is sort of a pet peeve of mine.
What’s that have to do with anything? I was home late because I was stuck waiting to meet someone who wanted to take a look at a pair of field boots I listed on Craigslist. She was half an hour + late. Which means I was half an hour + hungry.
Which means sweet potato and beans to the rescue.
Throw a sweet potato in dirt and I’d probably still savor every last bite.
But, I can’t complain. She bought the boots so now I have play money. My grocery staples are quickly dwindling – I’ve not mdone much of the necessary grocery shopping lately! Definitely on the agenda for the weekend – but that’s enough of me. What’s on your agenda for the weekend?!
