Okay…Okay…I’m jumping on the band wagon we in the blogging world call WIAW (What I Ate Wednesday)! Everyone does it different…some post everything they have eaten in one day…some post the highlights of their food for the week…some just post an awesome recipe. No way is wrong…they are all right! I mean…come one…you can’t go wrong with food!! Food is AWESOME! You can also come join the WIAW Party over at Peas & Crayons…It’s always a blast!!
Well…since I’m a total food lover but a horrible picture taker…I’m going to just share an amazing recipe that a co-worker of mine shared. I made it on Monday at 6:30pm and by Tuesday at 6:30 pm, the whole pot of this amazing concoction had mysteriously disappeared…oh who are we kidding…between my husband and I, we polished off the whole dang thing by ourselves! It was de-lish!!!
One of my co-workers shared this recipe with me that she found on Pinterest. This recipe is posted on TidyMom…check out her blog…she has TONS of yummy recipes just waiting to tantalize your taste buds! But back to the amazing recipe at hand…check out this yumminess…I highly recommend you make a double batch of this baby because you WILL
like love devour it!

Another yummy that I’ve been crushing on are these delightful little nutritional/energy bars called Balance bare bars. These bars are made with whole nuts, fruits and seeds with a handful of other nutritional ingredients…all of which I could read and understand what they were (that’s always a plus in my book).
There are three flavors to pick from…Mixed Berry Nut, Sea Salt Caramel Nut and Sweet & Spicy Nut. Each bar is 160 calories and are non-GMO, gluten free, soy free, vegetarian and certified kosher dairy. The Mixed Berry Nut and Sweet & Spicy Nut bars are also dairy free and vegan friendly.
Since I can’t do the whole dairy thing, I was provided with the Mixed Berry Nut and the Sweet & Spicy Nut bars to sample and review. They were both seriously tasty! The Mixed Berry Nut reminded me of a Candied Apple for some reason…I love Candied Apples so I didn’t question it too much 🙂 The Sweet & Spicy Nut was my all time favorite! The sweet flavor mixing with the chipotle chili seriously make my mouth ridiculously happy!
The bars are not extremely big but they were surprisingly filling. I find they are quite amazing for fueling up before a run…a mid afternoon snack at my desk at work…I snack in bed as I hide under the covers from my kids (I’m not saying I’ve done that last one…I’m just saying…these bars would even be great for that).
