I started the morning with a workout as usual. I did a 30 minute core workout and a bunch of jumping jacks to get my blood flowing. Then, at 5:00, Mel came over and we did all of the Jillian Shred videos. It was really fun to do them one right after the other and we both got a pretty great workout. After a quick shower and change, we rushed off to meet Amy at Coffee Club. We had a wonderful time as usual. Mel brought us a great breakfast of fresh pineapple and a Chia Razz bar.
I am so blessed to have such wonderful sisters. Now all I have to do is get my brother to move back to Richmond and join us on Friday mornings...then everything would be perfect!
Last night for dinner, H and I made tofu scramble with peas, peppers, mushrooms, tofu and tons of spices. On the side, we had homemade vegan biscuits that were just okay. I have been searching for a great healthy biscuit recipe for years now and I am just never happy with them. The biscuits were good but nothing great, so I guess the search continues. Does anyone have a recipe they want to share with me?
I broke into my Perfect Foods bar stash yesterday. I was so excited to try these bars out because they look amazing! The hard part was trying to figure out which flavor to try first.
I decided to go with the Cranberry Crunch bar which is a Perfect Foods Lite bar. This bar has 40% fewer calories than the other Perfect Foods bars. It is gluten free, has no refined sugar and tastes absolutely amazing.
To say that I liked this bar would be a gross understatement. Honestly, this bar tasted like peanut butter cookie dough with little rice crisps mixed in. There were a few cranberries in the bar but honestly, the bar didn't have much of a cranberry flavor. I was actually pretty happy about the lack of cranberry flavor because I am not a huge cranberry fan. There was just enough cranberry flavor in my opinion.
I was given three of the Cranberry Crunch bars so I had Mel and H each test one also. They both LOVED this bar. The only complaint they had was that the bar is a little bit crumbly. I have found that a lot of gluten free products are crumbly though so I wasn't very surprised by that. Honestly, this bar was great and I am already looking forward to trying the other three flavors. If you are interested in trying out one of these bars, you can find them at perfectfoodsbar.com.
Alright folks, I am off to work and ready to get this day behind me. Woo hoo! Have a great day!
