I know, 2 posts in one day… crazy right?? So, the weekend continued in a glorious way. On black Friday, my mom, aunt, and I drove 2 hours to Ann Arbor for the sole purpose of going to Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods (who needs that 4 AM-wait-in-line-and-freeze-your-azz-off crap??) Omg, it was like I had died and gone to heaven! People may think that’s a little odd, but really, that was totally my idea of a fantabulous freakin’ day! This was my first time at Whole Foods, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint!! *Sigh* 🙂 I got lots of goodies, and we also had lunch at Whole Foods’ amaaaazing hot/cold bar. We did go to some other places and got a little shopping done, which made the trip a little more well-rounded haha.
This morning, I was really excited to make a hearty oat mess and use some of my new goodies! Trader Joe’s crunchy almond butter is waaaay better than the creamy.
In the bowl: 1/4 cup oats, 1/2 cup vanilla soy milk, 1 small Honeycrisp apple, 1 Tbsp flax meal, 1 Tbsp chopped almonds, 1 Tbsp crunchy almond butter, Splenda. HOLY CRUNCHY, CHEWY YUM.
After I savored this wonderful breakfast, I decided it was time to put up the Christmas tree. I’m not a big Christmas person, which would explain why this is first time in the 5 years I’ve been with Wayne that we’ve set up an actual tree. I figured it was time! It looks pretty good, if I do say so myself!
To round out the day, I made a lovely dinner. I bought some whole wheat pizza dough at Trader Joe’s and turned it into some tasty eats. And just because I was feeling particularly anal today, I measured everything and calculated the calories per slice… 191! Not bad considering they were huge slices!
