Rainy Monday

Monday, January 25, 2010

This morning I woke up to rain :( Not a good way start to the new week but oh well. So to make my rainy morning a lil better I knew trying some new peanut butter would do just the trick ;)

I received several squeeze packs of Justin's Honey Peanut Butter awhile ago that I have yet to try so this morning I finally gave it a try!

Justin's honey peanut butter was very good! The hint of honey gave the peanut butter a nice taste to it. Sometimes these squeezable packets can be a tad hard to get the peanut butter out, but this one was not which was a plus in my book. These lil packets are perfect for on the go and very convienient. I recommend trying Justin's nut butters, there are so many yummy flavors out there to try!My yogurt mess this morning was Plain Chobani yogurt, Kashi Go Lean, a sliced banana topped with a drizzle of Justin's Honey peanut butter along with a glass of milk on the side.

I usually prefer Vanilla yogurt but I have noticed within the past week plain yogurt is not so bland and boring when you add yummy peanut butter with it! The plain Chobani went great with the honey peanut butter.

Honey peanut butter drizzled on top.

Yogurt mess all mixed up in a mug that I painted a few years ago at a clay studio. Hah.

I then relaxed with momma after breakfast then showered and got ready for the day.

My morning snack was a serving of TJ trail mix and a Vanilla Boost. You may have noticed my snacks are always in Ziploc snack bags. Well that is because I pre portion them out ahead of time so when it is time for a snack I just grab a bag and enjoy. This causes a lot less stress and anxiety for me having them already for me to eat. I recommend trying this lil trick ;)

Well it is still raining outside on this Monday afternoon :/ My lil sister's basketball game got cancelled because the school they were supposed to play at is flooded...so no afternoon plans for muah!

I had Justin's Almond Butter Squeeze with my apple today. I don't know if it helped with the rain factor though - ugh.

Hillary said...

I had Justin's Almond Butter today - yummm.

Gabriela said...

It was super rainy here today, too- not a bad afternoon to have nothing to do! I haven't tried Justin's yet, but I'll be on the lookout for it!

Jil said...

Mmm, that nut butter sounds delisssh. Love the painted mug -- I love painting pottery. This place near my house in NH does a ladies night where you have to be 21+ and can bring food and "adult beverages" -- it's so fun and hilarious! ...thinking about it makes me want to do it again.

I'm gonna need to get some Justin's packets- they seem so convenient!
And that yogurt mess looked delicious- Plain Greek Yogurt and banana is always an amazing combo, especially with PB: Yumm!!!

&That's Definitely a good idea to bag things in advance so you can just grab 'em and go! :)

Oh dear...looks like the rain is really pouring over there! It's been raining the whole week here in CA, and it's finally cleared up. Hope sunshine comes out over there too!

Hey love!!!

Justins PB Squeeze packs rock!!!!!!

Yes I am so happy Target sells PB& Co here, and it was on sale, double bonus!!

Hope you have a great week!!

Are those Boost drinks good?

Jenna said...

Heyy Katie!
I am super jealous your target sells yummy pb like pb & co! Is it a super target or no?! I have yet to see it at any of the targets I go to but I will be on the look out now ;)
Most people hate boosts but they are great nutritional drinks-they come in vanilla, strawberry, butter pecan, and chocolate ! I have tried them all and I just found the butter pecan for the first time last week at the store and it is OMG delicious! I drink them cuz I have to but I don't mind at all- very tasty! Try them!

Hi Jenna! Nice to meet you, and thanks for visiting my blog. Your story is amazing, and I look forward to following you!

Marisa (Loser for Life) said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Jenna! Love yours, too!

Chobani is my all time fave! Great tip about pre-portioning snacks! Sure makes those mindless grabs a lot harder to do; I gotta get working on that!

mmm Justin's is delicious. I just bought packets at a reduced price of the maple almond butter for 29 cents each! Good to stash in my purse. You know you're a foodie when you have gourmet almond butter in your purse.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
