I was iffy about going swimming this morning. The past 2 nights due to the heat Nick has been sleeping in our room in the pack and play and last night he woke up a few times and made some noise - then just went back to sleep, but of course it woke me up! So when the clock said 5, I went to the bathroom, brushed my teeth, got ready.. and then got back in bed. I was in bed a few minutes when I decided I was too hungry to go back to sleep anyway, so I got up and grabbed some food and headed out the door. Lucky for me, today was a guy's birthday that swims in my lane and someone brought dunkin donuts! I love the chocolate munchkins so after my efforts and getting up, I was rewarded with some of these :) Yippee! Totally worth it to get up! Today would be a fun day to have a baby: 7-7.
In the mail yesterday, I received a sample of the Clif Granola Bars in Chocolate Chip Flavor - I must have signed up for a free sample somewhere and it was amazing! I really liked it. It was crunchy and reminded me of those Nature Valley bars that you can crush and put in your yogurt. Kashi makes or made ones similar, but with the chocolate chips and sweetness, it was really good. They come 2 bars in a pack and have 180 calories (per 2 bars), 8g fat, 4g protein.
The ingredients: Organic Rolled Oats, Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Organic Sunflower Oil, Chocolate Chips (Evaporated Cane Juice, Unsweetened Chocolate, Cocoa Butter, Soy Lecithin, Vanilla), Rice Crisp (Rice Flour, Barley Malt Extract, Evaporated Cane Juice, Salt, Calcium Carbonate), Honey, Natural Flavors, Organic Barley Flakes, Organic Rye Flakes, Oat Bran, Oat Fiber, Sea Salt (Real Salt®), Inulin (Chicory Extract).
I have to see where they sell them. Besides that I should stock up on chocolate chip z bars and have been wanting to figure a way to make them - I would like these too - they are awesome! It looks like you can get them on amazon - $3.99/10 bars + shipping. Look for them in your grocery/natural food store.
During this pregnancy, I've had a craving / interest in coffee. I've had sips of Bill's here and there, but I've never been a coffee drinker. I love the smell and do not like the taste. I have always been a tea drinker but lost interest during both pregnancies. Today I think I am going to have a cup of decaf coffee. My first cup of coffee ever. How weird is that? Do you drink coffee? tea? what is your beverage of choice?
"just blueberries from whole foods but they are not organic and expensive! I also bought Happy Babies yogurt melts -another rip off. He'll eat fruit and tempo bars for his snacks, and sometimes crackers and goldfish but the last 2 I see as crap snacks. I've been making tempo bars (no bake granola bars) at least once every 2 weeks - they store well and I feel they are a healthy snack. I'm trying to think what else is transportable for healthy snacks. If you have kids, what do you give them or carry in your bag for when you are out and about?
Plum Organics Fruity Fingerfuls - seriously it is like a cup of cereal and dried strawberries (1 cup total of both!) in a bag and it was around $3.50. Never buying that again.
