A while ago, I tried the Happy Baby Food Cubes -
I was a huge fan. I also had free coupons to try the Happy Bites for toddlers. My whole foods is not going to carry these products anymore, and the last time I went I was able to pick up some to try. They had salmon, chicken bites, mac and cheese and veggie burgers. Well... I haven't given Nick any meat yet so I picked the veggie burgers to try. And I've been eating them and they are delicious!! I think they are for toddlers - so over a year, so I'll save some for Nick, but in the meantime, I did need to try them out to make sure they were good for Nick to eat - right?
The burgers have 2 servings of veggies and 110 calories. Here are the ingredients:
VEGGIE TOTS INGREDIENTS
Organic Potatoes, Organic Carrots, Organic Corn, Organic red Peppers, Organic Black Beans, Organic Eggs, organic Palm Fruit Oil, Water, Organic Pea Fiber, Organic Cheddar Cheese (Organic pasteurized milk, salt, enzymes), Organic Corn Starch, Organic Onion, Organic Garlic, Sea Salt, Organic Chili Powder, Organic Parsley, Organic Black Pepper, Organic Cumin
They were seriously delicious. Only 3 come in a box and at Whole Foods they were $4.99 so I found that to be kind of pricey, but each time I've bought them, a coupon has been inside - so that is a plus.
Next up - Reading Heather's blog, I made the cashew cheeze sauce (click the link for the blog) for veggies and tofu last night. It was really easy and tasty too. I only had 1 cup cashews, 1 cup water, and 1 tbsp tahini. It was still good.
This week, I've just been doing what I feel like in terms of work outs. I got a sinus infection on Monday and it won't go away. And unfortunately, I can't take anything for it so it's lingering. I skipped swimming Monday and today which was a bummer but I slept in instead and did Jillian. I've yet to get to the gym this week to do some real lifting, but Jillian is a good sweat and toner.
Yesterday I ran a little over 5 miles on the treadmill. I have no aspirations for weekly mileage and it is feeling nice! The next long race (10 miles)I might do won't be until late March so I have time.
Today I made some peppermint tempo (granola) bars - inspired by chocolate mint gu, but this wasn't an ingredient!
I'm seriously missing teaching - grading papers, interacting with kids - I keep looking for college positions for one night a week or one day a week and can't find a thing. I picked up another student to tutor so my 3 hours of tutoring (M, T, W) keep my brain working throughout the week.
I've definitely been slacking off on reading blogs. Nick started crawling and wants to walk with assistance everywhere, and with the sinus infection on top of that, I've been so tired and going to bed early - so I'm going to try to catch up soon!
