Tomorrow my friend, Allie, is coming to stay with us until Tuesday, and I’m so excited! We haven’t met before, so basically you can call us modern day pen pals as we “met” through our blogs. It’s like in Julie and Julia when Julia Child met her pen pal!
I have some fun eats that are straight up Live Laugh Eat inspired.
Allie always eats delicious fruit and yogurt combos. This bowl was strawberries and blueberries, topped with a mixture of plain yogurt and plain Greek (she always eats the plain kind, and a long time ago I never thought I would like just plain yogurt, but now that’s all I like-the regular sweetened yogurt is just too sweet for me now, even with my sweet tooth!) It’s topped with 1/2 of a carrot ginger muffin from Trader Joe’s (her favorite kind from there) and almond butter, in this case Barney Butter.
You must try Barney Butter if you never have. I found them on clearance at Jewel for a steal because they are usually pretty pricey.
Verdict on this bowl? So amazing! I’ve been eating variations of this stuff all week.
Earlier in the week I ate this:
Simple, easy, delicious parfait of Greek yogurt, strawberries, and Barbara’s shredded oats-another clearance find and so good!
Joe’s hand made an appearance.
Ahh the Barney Butter! So creamy, and it practically glistens?!
Delicious pre-workout fuel: dates dipped in almond butter, which Allie enjoys! I used to occasionally dip dates in peanut butter, but I think I like them in almond butter more, even though peanut butter wins out in my life. It’s just that crazy Barney Butter, I suppose!
Another yummy breakfast: plain kefir (so good for your gut), and Greek yogurt mixed with raspberries and strawberries and topped with homemade zucchini bread and my apparent addiction.
Fun things to come!
