Happy Labour Day!

Glo bars have a sexy new backside ;)

All of the glo bars are going to have the full nutritional information, in addition to the ingredients, on the back label.

I also updated the nutritional info for Endure, Zen, Harmony, and Refresh Glo Bars! Check it out here.

Eric and I were in desperate need of groceries so we made a special trip to Costco and Whole Foods!

Here is what I got at Whole Foods:

The frozen fruit is divine!!! I can’t wait to throw a few pieces into my green monsters. Very quick and easy, no prep required.

Oh and look what I found in the backseat! We forgot to bring in our new S+P and Zester from our trip to William Ashley’s last week.

Almost as soon as I got home, I made the most delicious green monster.

I lightly microwaved some dandelion, black kale, and regular kale in water for about 2 minutes.

I also added a new Acai smoothie pak!

Nutritional info:

IMG_3963

I had a little nibble of the frozen puree and I was a bit surprised that it wasn’t naturally sweet. The GM definitely needed some banana. I used 1/2 a banana, 1/2 c almond milk, 1/2 cup water, and chia seeds.

It doesn’t get much healthier than this!

Yum, yum, yum.

~~~~~~

Stay tuned for the first of two chia seed contests this week! :)

Well, I’m off to do some labour! I’m going to finish my labels, nutrition info, new Glo Bar experiments, and baking a big order up! So much for a day off! I have one mean boss… ;)

Enjoy your Labour Day! Is anyone doing anything fun?

PS- Operation cat bed is NOT going smoothly!

The beans are Mung (or moong)! They’re great for making veggie burger patties because they have a hearty “meaty” flavour.

Let me know how that zester works…I’m in the market for one!

Mmmmmm, I loves me some banana chips. I made some chocolate coconut banana energy bars with mine and they were awesome!
You’re so lucky you have access to a whole foods, I wish they would open one in Alberta.
I stocked up on the maple syrup and frozen fruit when I went to costco last weekend as well.

I love the feeling of having a recently stocked kitchen! I need to get myself a Cosco membership….since I moved, I now have access to one!

My step moms cat sleeps in a box top as well. Funny.

I just bought some Dandelion today to try in my Green Monsters. I put myself on a 30 day GM Challenge. I’m going on Day 8, and loving it!

Hi Angela! Came across your blog recently, and it’s great, LOVE IT! Your Sketchie cracks me up – our dogs do the same type of thing (instead of a box lid, it’s a laundry basket in our house!)

Put the cat bed down inside a box, no top, but with sides on it…about the same size as the bed but with maybe 6 ” sides… He will feel protected… Right now it’s flat.. Cats like “sides”….

Every time you post new photos of sketchie sitting BESIDE the bed, a little part of me laughs harder . . . sorry for your misfortune Angela but it is too funny for words

my labour day – one half cleaning and organizing, one half picnic . . . and probably some bbq burgers for dinner

OMG your Costco sells Mary’s crackers?!?! That’s awesome! I’ve been wanting to try pumpkin seed butter – I love pumpkin butter, but haven’t tried the seed version.

I hope you’re enjoying your holiday dear!
