While I’ve been quiet on the blog, I’m still eating my heart out!! So this only means that I have discovered many new and delicious goodies. I’ll use this as an opportunity to share because I hate keeping secrets.
I’ve tried close to 100 protein pancake recipes, and none of them were all that great. So I gave in to my “lazy” girl and purchased Flapjacked
protein pancake mix. Greatest decision ever!
All you need to do is add water. Bam. Done. They are so delicious!! I topped them here with a protein icing made with Cellucor
peanut butter marshmallow (get it) and almond milk. I’ve since purchased many a bag and while it’s pretty expensive, they are too good to pass up.
I was in Vegas for work last month and nearly felt trapped in my hotel, but my coworker, Amanda and I did manage to venture out to Staples for some last minute marketing materials. It just so happens that Staples was right next to a Whole Foods. Was it the best Whole Foods I’ve ever been to? YES! It was ah-mazing and Amanda and I were totally in our element and loving it. I found great local brands like these RAWNOLA bars.
While they were Paleo, they definitely reminded me of the Nature Valley crispy granola bars, which is just plain delicious! I should have purchased more since I can’t find them up here.
While we’re on the subject of other hard to find items, these Go Hunza almond cookies are just another one of my new addictions. While all the Whole Foods in my area carry other items from this brand, only one of them has the cookies.
Again, totally Paleo and so tasty! I feel as though I could make similar cookies at home, but my time is limited these days (as you can tell) so convenience has become my new best friend.
And not so Paleo, but still pretty natural, chuao chocolate is amazing! I picked them up on a trip to Whole Foods to fill some chocolate cravings. Rather than buying a whole bar, I picked up lots of mini ones.
Firecracker is delicious and fun. Dark chocolate with pop rocks! Just as amazing as you can imagine. They also have bacon, which I have yet to try.
Let’s move on to beverages.
Since I’m currently in “convenience” mode, I snagged this CoCo libre protein drink on a whim and I’m definitely glad I did. It’s a blend of whey protein and coconut milk. The chocolate flavor is awesome! It’s rich, creamy and leaves you feeling satisfied. I totes recommend.
Another Whole Foods Las Vegas find was this chai drink by Rebbl
. Vegas is hot. My eating was off schedule. I was hungry, I was thirsty and this was perfect! I don’t drink coffee and haven’t had chai in long time, but this caught my attention. The ingredients are all natural, Organic and apparently, I’ve come to learn that the company is just plain awesome
It had just the right amount of spicy flavor and kept me satisfied until it was time for our group dinner.
So, sometimes I drink beverages of the adult variety. Last Summer, I discovered I will drink beer, if its in the form of shandy. This still holds true…
Even though I only attended one Alive @ 5 this Summer, it was just enough for me to discover Copa
wine. How freaking cool is this? Talk about utter convenience! Great idea for festivals and concerts. The wine was okay too.
So, those are just some of the goodies I’ve been hiding lately. I’ll also be sure to share some of the tasty dinners I had while in Vegas and Denver! Stay tuned, friends!
Have you had any of these goodies?
