Current snacks

Did you have a good long weekend? I sure did and it was hard going back to work on a Tuesday. It’s a blessing, but my whole week is off. Meh!
Anywho, I’ve been experimenting with snacks/dinners/recipes lately and that’s good for me.
I’m one of those people who will eat the same thing daily until I’m sick of it. Always been this way and I won’t hide it.
Here is what I’ve been lovely lately:
Rice crackers with spicy hummus and mozerella cheese!

Cheese please!

You only need 3 ingredients. Rice cakes, hummus and cheese. Simple yet tasty!

With all the warm weather, I’ve been in need of a tasty cold Popsicle. Luckily I’ve been able to sample the ProYo Greek yogurt Popsicles. They are very tasty especially on a warm day. My complete review will follow.

ProYo comes in a variety of flavors. Stay tuned!
You can never go wrong with a handful of nuts.

A great source of protein and energy!
Do you love Greek yogurt? I sure do. I’m obsessed!

Obsessed with the following flavors:
1. Banana
2. Strawberry banana
3. Strawberry shortcake
4. Strawberry
Lately, I’ve been creating my own frozen yogurt and I love it. I’ve been freezing the yogurt tubs for 2 hours before eating.
Aka super yummy!
I’m always looking for new snack ideas! Please pass them on!!

My Summer Book Club

Good morning!

Does anyone else agree that this week will never end? Yesterday was a very long day. Ugh!

After reading The Fault In Our Stars  over the weekend, I decided that I need to get back into reading. I forgot how easy it was to get through a book so quickly while doing cardio. Time just flies on by.

It made me remember how much I was reading a few months ago. Fortunately I got caught up in watching TV shows on Netflix. However, I’ll admit that I was having a hard time finding a book or author that would suck me in. Luckily,  The Fault In Our Stars caught my attention real quick and reminded me how much I love to read.

That being said, I decided to put together my own book club. I’ll be the only one in the club. HA!

I’ve come up (with the help of others, you know who you are) a list of books that I am interested in reading.

Allegiant by Veronica Roth

I’ll admit, I’ve started the book, but haven’t finished. However, it is a hardback which is harder to hold while working out. I will finish it though, don’t worry about that! 😀


Orange Is The New Black by Piper Kerman


What Happened To Goodbye by Sarah Dessen


Paper Towns by John Green

I’m pretty confident that I’ll finish all four of these books in a month or so; however, I don’t want to overwhelm myself.

Reading should be enjoyable and I love to get lost in books.

Do you love to read?

What are you currently reading?

Any recommendations to my list?

Have a great Thursday.

Oh man, this is a favorite. A perfect bar to take on a hike!

I am not a fan of chocolate and mint together, so I cannot give this bar a fair rating…

Overall, I am wow’d by the wide variety of products that Vega offers. Consumers can choose from protein powder, shakes, bars and supplements.

After trying the different Vega bars, I would definitely be interested in purchasing their products.

Have you tried Vega products?
