Have you ever had 24 full size bags of SkinnyPop delivered to your door all at one time? That happened to be yesterday, and I was beyond excited to see the two massive boxes waiting for me.
Sorry, baby. Not for you. #moreformomma
Needless to say… I ate SkinnyPop all day long.
[THANK YOU, SKINNYPOP!]
Well, I did have some other food, but it was a pretty snacky day.
I started the day (before SkinnyPop arrived) with a healthy Strawberry Smoothie.
It was full of good stuff: 1 cup frozen strawberries, 1 cup milk, 1 tbsp hemp seeds, 1 tbsp flax seeds, 1 tsp maple syrup, 1 scoop A-Game greens. Cold, thick, and delicious.
I hosted a small play date yesterday with my two good friends Diana and Rachel and their babies Emily and Carly. Many more of these to come, especially this summer!
Do you see baby Emily holding William’s hand? Don’t be jealous, Carly…
It’s funny to see the babies interact now. Emily is still pretty young, but William and Carly LOVE playing with each other. They are just waiting for Emily to get a liiiittle older as they were definitely interested in her as they tried to poke her eyes and bite her feet.
They came over in the morning, so I set out a nice little brunch for all of us.
Watermelon, blueberry muffins, banana bread, Blue Diamond sea salt almonds, chocolate chip banana bread, and an egg and cheese biscuit casserole. I had some when the girls were over, when they left, and throughout the day. This served as my brunch, lunch, and snacks. I have totally been loving on watermelon lately. I’m not a huge fan of cutting it, but the few minutes it takes is definitely worth it, especially with the large quantity of fruit it provides. Anyone else loving on watermelon this summer?
One more photo cuteness from the play date:
William and Carly pretending to sleep.
They’re at such a fun age where they actually follow the directions (sometimes) of short commands. And they both copy each other. Carly put a basket on her head and William thought it was the funniest thing ever. Then, he proceeded to do it multiple times later in the day. Silly babies.
Linking up with Jenn at Peas and Crayons for What I Ate Wednesday.
More snackage included a million and one handfuls of SkinnyPop. No joke.
Can’t stop. Won’t stop.
At least it’s healthy, right? I’m now part of #TeamSkinnyPop, so lots and lots and lots and lots of SkinnyPop will be poppin’ (ha!) up around here. They are most known for “NO ARTIFICIAL ANYTHING” in their popcorn. Most notably, SkinnyPop is cholesterol free, zero trans fat, dairy free, peanut free, tree nut free, gluten free, preservative free, non gmo, and a good source of fiber. The four flavors include: Original, Black Pepper, White Cheddar, and Naturally Sweet. Right now, the white cheddar is stealing my heart (but I can always eat the original!); I do need to get my hands on that naturally sweet flavor. I haven’t tried that yet, and know it would be fantastic.
With all the snacking I did ALL.DAY.LONG. (seriously), I decided it would be a good idea to get some veggies in for dinner. And that I did.
What is this beautiful creation, you ask. (Oh you didn’t? I’ll tell you anyway.) I used a Flatout ProteinUP wrap and loaded it up with tomatoes, cucumbers, lentils, hummus, and red peppers. Then, I topped it all with Parmesan cheese and heated it in the oven for a few minutes before rolling it up. As I was eating it, I was quite pleased with my creation. But then I remembered I meant to add avocado to it. Argh, that would have made it even better. Boo. It was good as it was, and kept me full longer than I anticipated. (The ProteinUP wrap has 12 grams of protein in it alone! Not to mention the hummus, lentils, and cheese!)
As I sit here and blog its Tuesday evening. I’m munching away on SkinnyPop because… well, I can always eat SkinnyPop, hungry or not. Not the best habit to get into, but it’s just SO GOOD. Ok, time to stop, sign off, put away the SkinnyPop, and head to bed.
Which #TeamSkinnyPop flavor are you: Original, Black Pepper, White Cheddar, or Naturally Sweet?
