Whole Foods Love

6 Apr

Hi everyone—hope all is well! It was 90 frickin degrees out today and not too bad of humidity. If only I didn’t have this little thing called work getting in my way. Le sigh…….

So as y’all know, I’m going to DC on Thursday. And what does DC have that Charlotte doesn’t? Ok well besides the obvious answers:

I’m so excited for this and starting a list of what I need to get there, happy 🙂

 I got around to trying the new Yoplait Greek Yogurt

I topped with even more strawberries, coconut granola and unsweeted coconut.

Verdict? I loved it. I liked the consistency of it and it wasn’t too sweet or runny like I had been expecting. And this had 130 calories and 12 gr of protein so that is a definite plus. My heart will always belong to Chobani but I would definitely buy this again.

Starbucks, you complete me.

I was pretty busy today since a lot of my deals are going on hold this week (of course when I go on vacation the work stops) which was nice. I hate it when it is super slow because I just want to do nothing and fall asleep. I caught a little break and one of my co-workers and I went on a 20 minute walk and covered a little over a mile.

Lunch was boring since I’m trying to clear out the fridge. Roast beef sandwich on Trader Joe’s Whole Grain Bread with dijon, one slice of cheese and baby spinach

Nothing too exciting but it was great.

 Random factoid about me….when I try to flirt I fail. Yet when I act like a bitch and standoffish, they come a’flockin.

Location: Work elevator.

Parties Involved: Scott Stapp look alike and I

Time: Noon

Scott Stapp look alike: “Can you believe this weather?”

Me: “Yeah, it’s supposed to be hot”

And I may have done a mini shimmy.  Yeah, I am being serious. Oh God, I looked like a dork! But a dork who flashed her left hand to show there’s no ring so yeah!!!

I wanted to make tacos for dinner and stopped by Trader Joe’s and they were out of both tomatoes and avocadoes…..I’m being serious. I think it was guacamole Armageddon or something.

I came home to this lovely vision

“Hi, pollen. My name’s Tiffany, nice to meet you. What? You want to be friends? No? Ok I thought you did because you’re making sweet love to my car”

WTF is up with all the pollen?? I’ve never seen this much before and can’t breathe today, ridiculous. I would also like to know where spring has gone because her greedy step-sister, summer has come in to steal the spotlight.

I picked up a beautiful orange pepper at Trader Joe’s….it kinda looks like a pumpkin!

I made chicken tacos with chopped jalapenos,onions, shredded cheese, chopped pepper, green onions and salsa. Just an fyi….I make tacos a lot when it gets warm out. I love how colorful you can make it!

I was achy after dinner and needed some goof stretching. I turned off the tv and lights, opened the blinds and cleared out my coffee table. I got about 20 minutes of good stretching and yoga time in until someone decided to join me.

If this dog isn’t spoiled, I don’t know who is.

I’m sitting munching on some Trader Joe’s Lite Kettlecorn waiting for Lost to get on

Wake up little sushi

10 Feb

I started my day off again with a Spinach Coffee Smoothie (Soy Milk, Coffee, Spinach, Chocolate Whey) but added alfalfa sprouts this time from the suggestion of a friend.

He is not a good friend because it tasted to alfalfa-ey (don’t think that’s a word but I’m making it into one) and was nastier than a two dolla hooker. With the spinach at least it doesn’t have a strong taste but the alfalfa was too much for me.

I made a breakfast sandwich with Thomas Whole Wheat Bagel Thin, Quick Eggs with parsley mixed in and laughing cow garlic and herb wedge

I do miss Starbucks Red Holiday cups but am kinda diggin the heart cups they have in lieu of Valentines Day.

And I have decided that since no man will be buying me anything( although Lincoln would if he was, ya know, human) I will be buying myself a cookie cake. I will probably only eat half of it but that’s what I want for Valentine’s Day ?

I met up with a friend for lunch and we went to Fiji Sushi Bar & Lounge for all you can eat sushi! The deal is $10 which is not bad at all. We were a little confused at first b.c we didn’t see a sushi bar with sushi readily available on it. Soon we saw servers coming around with trays o sushi and knew I was in heaven!

First round

Second round

Third (and biggest round)

I was so happy to have some good sushi for a reasonable price. And  be able to enjoy a nice lunch out as opposed to eating at my desk. No one on my team ever goes to lunch so when I have a friend who wants to go out for lunch, I get super excited! And taking an hour off from work is such a great way to break up the day

I also found this adorable shower curtain online and would totally buy it if I didn’t have a garden tub with glass door


I went to the library to wake up after Sushi Fest 2010 and got this book


 
I can’t wait to look through and get some new recipes!

I saw this and chuckled

I went for coffee after and got a refill of my Starbucks. There are so many people in there mid day, I am curious as to what they do for a living? But then again, they could be thinking that about me! LOL

I wasn’t ravished come dinner time so made a mini portion of quesadillas (filled with chicken, kidney beans, onion, cheese and jalapeno) with sour cream and salsa mixed together 

On the side, I tried Kettle Brand Jalapeno PotatoChips, which is a new product of theirs

I think they forgot to put the flavoring on them 😦 I even poured myself a big glass of water to go with it and they were disappointing. I think bbq flavor may have more kick which sucks because I love hot stuff like jalapenos. this was my first bad experience with that brand and that made me sad.

I was kinda meh about it and zoned during some of it. I am going to watch it online either tonight or tomorrow night and see if I feel differently.

Ay brotha, I miss Desmond!
 

Bring him back!!!!
