TGIF! I’m so glad the weekend is here and ready for some relaxing. Today I sort of grazed through the day for food breaking lunch into snacks because I wanted to knock out a Target shopping trip. So I went to work with a purse full of goodies that included fruit, a Sun Warrior protein smoothie and a Pure bar. Yes, there’s two cell phones in there – the joy of being on call. And I pretty much always have fruit in my purse and piled on my desk at work.
Around 11 AM, I was ready for lunch #1 that included the Pure Organic Chocolate Brownie bar.
I selected it at Trader Joe’s because it’s raw vegan and had less calories than a Larabar and looked even more like a dessert bar.
Well, it isn’t much bigger than a fig bar – no wonder it had less calories! And it disappeared fast, too fast since I was hungry. The texture was very much like a raw chocolate brownie, cake or dough ball – ground nuts and dates. It was good and had a nice, chocolaty flavor – but nothing too exciting.
Though the bar was small, it did satisfy me for awhile, so this wouldn’t be a bad choice if you need to quick and satisfying snack.
I got into a bit of trouble in the clothing clearance section at Target, 50 and 75% off signs were just too tempting and the spring-like weather today had me craving lighter clothes. So I scored a cute dress, cami top and a light sweater for about $20, not bad.
And these cute vegan flats on sale since my old ones were barely wearable.
Neither hubby or I were in the mood to cook dinner, so we stepped out to a local Thai place for dinner where I tried a new tofu curry dish that was wonderful. The curry coconut sauce was perfect and the tofu firm and cooked to a nice texture to absorb the flavors. Thai seems to be a go to place for us since there always seems to be great vegan options for me.
When we got home, we were feeling pretty tired from the week and plunked down in front of the TV with a lap buddy to watch a Trailer Park Boys movie.
If you’ve never seen the Trailer Park Boys TV show, I highly recommend it even though it’s a guilty pleasure. Hubby and I discovered the show a few years ago and have been keeping up with it and the movies that have been spun off since. It’s a wild ride following a trailer park community and all the craziness like a reality show and your can rent or buy the seasons on DVD now.
