GoodBelly's are Good in the Belly!

This is a post dedicated to my love for GoodBelly's! I can't get enough of them. I have sampled both the GoodBelly Plus and one of the regular kind.
For the GoodBelly Plus I first had the Strawberry flavor. The flavor was good for me, but I am a person who doesn't like chunky yogurt of seeds in anything, so the strawberry seeds threw me off. But I would definitely drink this flavor again. It was very good!
Next I tried the Blueberry flavor, I didn't like this flavor as much as the strawberry. This one also had seeds in it. But the flavor just wasn't for me.
Lastly I tried the Peach Mango, which is by far my favorite flavor! Its so smooth and not too sweet. I get this one all the time. I also like the fact that these GoodBelly Plus flavors have vitamins in them too. So you get an added benefit from drinking these little guys. Plus how can you not feel good drinking out of a smiley face?

The larger sizes just showed up in my Co-op in the last couple of weeks. I have so far tried only the Mango flavor. I LOVED it! I put it in my Green Monsters and it made them so so so much better! It added a nice tropical sweet flavor. Plus I also tried the drink straight up and it was so good! I can't wait to try the other flavors in the larger sized containers!

I highly encourage everyone to try GoodBelly's if they can get their hands on them. I have been asked to get some for friends who cannot get to the Co-op who have tried mine because they also love them!

CSA Week 3

Welcome back Amanda. Boy I've had zero time this week! I worked Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday night. I brought CSA salads all three nights. Of course I was running late and didn't get a picture of even one!

My sister picked my goodies up this past Wednesday. I got a head of boston lettuce (will have to make something with lettuce wraps), swiss chard, scallions, 2 tomatoes, potatoes, snap peas, and 2 different kinds of radishes.
Its still been raining and cold here in NH, not good for growing. Yesterday was the first nice day since May!! Hopefully it will bring a trend of nice warm sunny days for growing!

Last night I went out for Thai food. It was only the second time I've had Thai food. I had Pad Thai with shrimp. It was so good. But again, I'm not comfortable taking pictures in public, nor on a date.

On the Amazing Grass front...I have already found things I love and others that I don't really care for. Look for a formal review probably next week!

Amazing Grass

I received a very generous package from Teri Jo over at Amazing Grass today!

I can't wait to try everything! I already made a Green Monster with the Chocolate Green Superfood when I got home from the gym. It was so good. It tasted like a chocolate banana smoothie! I even used my little shaker cup, after mixing everything in my magic bullet of course!

Yesterday I brought the dogs to Rally Obedience class and we didn't get home until 8pm! I was starving by that time. So I just threw together a quick veggie scramble.

Its zucchini, red pepper, red onion, and 2 eggs. It was so good and light, perfect for right before bed.

Today I went shopping and finally got stuff for Green Monsters, lots of hummus, cherries, and avocados.

This is a short post because I have to get ready for work. Back to the grind!

CSA week 2

I got my second week of veggies today. Here they are!

As I mentioned before they are beet greens, radishes, snap peas that are almost gone now, big ass bag of spinach, popcorn, and lettuce.

I am out of Green Monster supplies and its killing me. I've gone 2 days now without one and I seriously think I'm going through withdrawls! Tomorrow I'm going to go get more bananas. Here is the last one that I had

Last night I went out to dinner. I didn't take pictures because it was a first date and I didn't want to go into the whole blog thing. Plus I'm not exactly comfortable taking pictures in public yet. I had salmon over tempura green beans over soba noodles in a soy sauce glaze. It was so good. My dining partner had steak tips with barbecue sauce with mashed potatoes. He said his was really good too.

Then we went to see The Hangover. That is where I saw an Operation Beautiful note in the bathroom! I was so excited! When I got home I emailed Caitlin and she was so excited that someone found a note! She is going to post my email tomorrow for the Orlando newspaper to see!

Giveaway Alert! and Some Updates

Kristen over at Iowa Girl Eats is hosting a Real Simple and Pure bar giveaway! Be sure to enter!

My dinner last night was perfect! I didn't get hungry until about 11, but didn't eat until midnight because I was doing stuff. Then I had my Tings mid morning and my toast at the witching hour of 5:30am. I was fine on the ride home when I usually eat a bar of some kind (think Larabar), but sadly I don't have any right at the moment.

And I can't believe it but the sun is shining!!! I was almost taken aback as to what it was!!!

For my CSA this week I got popcorn (up thats right!), sugar snap peas (my sister made sure they were good and yes indeed they are), radishes, salad greens, spinach, beet greens, and I think thats it. My mom and I are trying to figure out a time to meet so I can get my goods! I'll photo them and post the photos when I get them!

Miss Smarty Pants

Today I slept half the day because I have to work tonight. When I got up I had a Green Monster of course! Speaking of Green Monsters...Check out N Her Shoes for an Amazing Grass Giveaway! I hope I win because I so want to try Amazing Grass!!!
Before dinner tonight, which was left over stir fry, I decided to make the most of my time today so I wouldn't have to rush around the next two nights before work. I made three salads, figured if I was chopping for one how much harder would it be to chop for three? I also grilled some chicken for them.
I used up almost the rest of my CSA greens. There was a head of Boston Lettuce in there and while I was cleaning it I thought that it would make great lettuce wraps for something. I hope I get some again so I can make a meal that needs lettuce wraps!
I also made some Zucchini canoes, I realized I totally forgot to take a picture of the final product, so I'll have to make them again sometime if they come out ok. I kind of flew by the seat of my pants on the recipe! With those and my salad, I also have two slices of bread with some Barney Butter and some Tings. Hopefully that will all hold me over!
Last night I was playing with my camera. I use a point and shoot. Its an Olympus Stylus 600. I like it ok, it has lots of options. I usually use the "cuisine" option to photograph my food because it works the best. For some reason without a flash everything comes out blurry...this is an extreme
I mean she was just laying on the couch not moving at all, and I don't think I was moving that much!
So I figured what if I use the "reducing blur" option and this is what came out
I have been thinking of getting a new camera. Mine is kind of old, I got it when I got Miss Luna and she will be 4 next week. I have no idea what to get though! Maybe I will see if I can borrow my mom or my sisters SLRs sometime and see how those work out!
