I went to Clemson this weekend to visit a friend, and help her move into her new apartment. We have been friends since high school, but haven’t talked much since college until just recently, so it was great to be able to meet up again!
The next morning we stopped by Starbuck’s and I got one of these new raw bars (along with my nonfat misto) they sell just to try it out:
This bird food looking bar is made by Two Moms in the Raw. The only drawback is that the bar has 18 grams of sugar which mainly comes from agave and blueberries. The bar is pretty good, but I won’t be buying it again because there is too much agave in there for me. I like as little added sugar as possible even if it is a natural source.
I know, I know, and then I go and eat raisnets. Haha. The difference is that I don’t eat raisinets all the time, but I eat granola, oats, and bars like that more frequently. It’s all about what you do 80% of the time. The 20% doesn’t count–or that is what I say 😉
After I said goodbye to Valerie…
I got some new snacks on the way home.
Some Brazil nuts that Valerie got me into. I have always liked them, but didn’t realize you could buy Brazil nuts only. Brazil nuts are very high in selenium which is a potent antioxidant, but surprisingly research shows that if you supplement, you are at greater risk for non-melanoma skin cancer and possibly type 2 Diabetes. So strange. I will have to research this more…
Also purchased some pomegranate arils (so convenient, but pricey), and little tuna packs for snacks or work lunches.
Up next in the next few days: a new tasty quinoa recipe!
