Just as I thought…breakfast has gone back to the sweet side.
For two days in a row I’ve been eating:
1 barbaras shredded wheat puff + 1 weetabix + 1 chocolate pb muffin + 1 serving true vitality chocolate protein powder + unsweetened almond milk + 1 T peanut flour
Did you know that weetabix in the US is distributed by Barbara’s bakery?? I’ve been eating it for years and I JUST realized it! No wonder I like it so much. Barbara has great taste
And theres a chocolate flavor?? – why have I not been aware of this?
I learn something new everyday.
Speaking of new…I love trying new things, and recently I’ve come across quite the smorgasbord of new things. Some that I love, some not so much.
1) endangered species chocolate
I came across this sweet treat at Whole Foods. Usually I don’t really eat the items they put out for you to taste, but since it was free chocolate I kind of just had to. Plus it was in a wrapper. I’ll be the first to admit it – I’m a total germaphobe. Who know’s where people hands have been when they reach into those sample bins of fruit and chips??
I now have a whole bag of these chocolates on my kitchen counter.
That’s how good they are! They have them in actual bars size too and I really want to try the golden berry and lucuma bar, but the individually packaged ones are good for passing out on Halloween…and for me to practice single-serving self control.
And for those of you who are vegan or gluten free, you can eat them too! They’re all certified vegan and gluten free.
2) Multi-Green kombucha
Ok, so I’m not new to kombucha, but this is a new to me flavor.
I’m not really sure why I never tried it, but I actually like this one a lot more than a couple of the other ones I’ve tried. It’s not as sweet and it’s the first one that didn’t explode on me in a while.
3) Tera’s Whey
I’ll admit it. I got suckered into buying this partly because of the packaging. It looks good, right? And for $4 bucks an ounce, it better be good!
belch. Not a fan at all.
I guess I just can’t get over the taste of stevia.
I should’ve known since I’m not a fan of Jay Robb’s or Sunwarriors powders, since they both contain stevia of some sort, but of course I didn’t learn my lesson the first two times.
3rd times the charm? Lets hope the lesson has been learned here – No more stevia protein powders for me.
After being unable to find my favorite protein powder multiple times (how many times can one protein powder be sold out?), I settled for this one. It’s quite similar in taste. A little sweeter maybe? I guess it’s nice to change it up every once in a while though.
But yesterday I went to WF’s again and guess what I found after a month of searching??
Last one on the shelf. So of course I had to buy it!
Spiru-tein may have just earned a spot on the back shelf for a while…
5) kiwi berries
I’m not sure what I was expecting when I bit into one, but I was legitimately surprised to see that it looks exactly the same as a kiwi on the inside!
Just a miniature version.
And it tastes just as it sounds – like a kiwi mixed with a berry.
Let’s just hope I’m not allergic to these since I’m allergic to actual green kiwis.
Now it’s your turn! – Have you tried anything new lately?
