Good Morning and Happy Friday!
I am on my way to my sister’s graduation from the Police Academy this morning! I can’t believe she is almost done. I remember when she was being sworn in. Here we were:
Anyways, on to some eats, and some new things I have tried lately.
Stuffed Sweet potatoes. You can literally mix anything with a sweet potato and it tastes good 🙂
Quest Cookie Dough Bites
Cut A Chocolate chip cookie dough quest bar into 4 pieces. Bake for about ten minutes at 350 degrees until they puff up a bit (like cookies). Eat plain or top with coconut or almond butter! YUM
More sweet potato, broccoli with laughing cow cheese mixed in, mini babybell, chicken
Sorry if you like this stuff, but I couldn’t even take more than one sip without gagging, I did not like the flavor at all. I mixed it with almond milk but even if I mixed it with lots of fruit and made a smoothie I think the flavor is so strong that I still wouldn’t like it. Just my opinion #sorryimnotsorry
Another protein that I just did not like! It did not mix very well at all and kind of tasted like dirt to be honest. Oh well, I’ll stick with what I know I like for now 🙂
Laura said she mixed hers with oats and it tasted good so maybe I’ll have to try it that way next time.
Egg White Oats with blueberries and chunky peanut butter- The Bomb!
Quest “peanut butter sandwich”
This may not look like anything fancy but let me tell you it was! Of course another chocolate chip cookie dough quest bar (my favorite flavor) cut in half, smash some peanut butter between the two and microwave for about 30 seconds.
Think Thin Bites
I have seen these before but never tried them. I do love the regular think thin bars but I kind of took a break from them. These little bites are great if you just need a little something 🙂

Love Quest Bars Like I do? What’s your favorite flavor?
I don’t know about you guys but this weekend was jam-packed for me!
First, I want to show you some new to me products that I ordered from IHerb. I used a coupon and got 10 dollars off my purchase and free shipping!
I’ve used coconut flour before but never these other products. I have heard so much about nutritional yeast so I thought I should just go ahead and buy some and try it on my veggies and whatever else I can come up with. It has lots of fiber and protein in it. Right up my alley!
Peanut flour is another one that I’ve seen people use instead of PB2. 2 tbsp has 8 grams of protein, holy cow! I can’t wait to experiment with these.
If you have any neat ways to use these products please let me know!
Now, let me move back to Thursday.
Thursday night I went to the Rascal Flatt’s concert, which was amazing! First the girls and I went and got some dinner and drinks.
I had the spinach flat bread with tomato, and balsamic drizzle with added chicken.
Bike Riding and Lunch/Cupcakes
The neighbors had a cookout and our dog Jackson got to play with his brother who lives next door all night!
Won some beer at a baby shower, yes at baby shower. That’s how we roll.
I cant wait to try some pumpkin beer!
Made Carrot Cake Protein Balls and cookies (Recipe to come!)
How was your weekend?
