3 - 3 - 3 - 3

Here are 3 things that I'm into right now:


Toffee Chip Power Bars. What is the obsession? Totally processed sugary power bars. I love these things. I have maybe 1/2 before working out and the rest post workout. Then I eat a bowl of cereal an hour later for breakfast. They have mini chocolate chips on top and they are so good.  I don't recommend them though, they're addictive and have a big list of ingredients.


PHILLY CREAM CHEESE
I can't get enough of this stuff. Bagels, Potatoes, pasta...with a spoon. I don't know where I came up with this one!



CHOCOLATE AND MINT
I want these now!! 
I remember my mom making these all the time growing up. They're all the rage!

I made the thin mints. I told you they would never look like the picture but all that really matters is the taste, right?

Now let's talk about some less sugary ideas - COOKING

I also learned that I like to eat salmon, but I can't cook it then eat it. I'm just starting to eat fish and that is the only one I will try because of its nutritional powerhouse nature. I followed this recipe and tried some of it and it was delicious, but then mentally I couldn't eat it anymore knowing that I cooked it and it was fish. Ha.



This was a great recipe that my friend Lauren shared.

what the heck is on those potatoes?? Is that cream cheese?? :)

On the recipe board for this week:
Some kind of pumpkin cranberry bread? Care to share a recipe??

Oatmeal Scones that look great!

Pumpkin Ginger Cookies
Nutri-Grain Bars



What's on your list?

  3. I love chocolate and mint! I used to make thin mint brownies... but my hubby hates the combo!
    Right now I'm obsessed with all things Pumpkin, butternut squash, and comfort type foods. I guess it's this fall weather

  4. ugh, you are making want to eat! lol your thin mints look good to me!

    I love salmon! I craved it crazy when I was pregnant with Ethan. My favorite way to make it is broil it in the oven topped with a bit of butter(helps keep it moist), lemon (takes any fishy flavor out), and lemon pepper seasoning. SO GOOD! I then steamed broccoli and brown rice to go with it.
