New Treats and Eats

Hello! This middle of the week came fast, even though today was pretty slow. Today was a long day filled with a meeting and I was pretty stressed when I walked out of work. I made it to the gym pretty quick, but it took me 20 minutes to find a spot. I was all ready to leave when I made one more loop around the block and found a pretty awesome spot. I knew I needed to stay because I was so stressed and frustrated, so I changed quick and did 40 minutes on the elliptical. I came home and did 10 minutes of yoga-ish stretching on the floor and then got to cooking dinner.  

This post is from last nights baking/cooking extravaganza. Danny wanted some chocolate chip cookies so I made the batter a couple hours before when I got home from work and let it sit for a couple of hours (even though the recipe says 24 hours, I was lazy wanted to be done with baking for the week. 

This time I used Ghiradelli 60% Cacao chips because that all I had. We rolled them into balls before we baked them.


So good, and worth it for a treat every once in awhile.

Yesterday I went to the food store because I needed some more vegetables. I decided to stop at a food store near my school, in Flushing. It is a pretty new store and looked nice from the outside so I went for it. It was HUGE on the inside with every type of fruit and vege imaginable. It was pretty cheap also and I walked out spending $12! 

On the left is a bag of baby bok choy and that HUGE carrot was only .89! Also they had bags of frozen edamame out of the pods for $.99. I was pretty excited!

I also received a present (that I paid for) in the mail. I needed more goji berries so I decided to get it from and also got maca and chia seeds. I put a tsp of maca in my yogurt this morning and the first couple of bites tasted a little funky, but after it mixed in it tasted better. The chia seeds are still sitting unopened. Anyone have any suggestions on what to do with them??

The last thing I did yesterday was make dinner, which was pizza. I added about 1/8 cup flax seeds to the dough and it really gave it a nutty flavor. I put veges on 1/4 and cheese on 3/4 to make everyone happy (and by everyone I mean Danny and myself...)

One of my favorite dinners...quick and easy.

Hope everyone has a great rest of the night. I'm finishing up the Biggest Loser from last night and then watching Modern Family. Yes...fav night of the week.

That pizza looks great - loving the flax seed idea!

At first I just saw the pics nd thought you got all those veggies AND the chia seeds, goji berries, and maca powder for $12...almost turned green with envy! haha. I've been dying to try chia seeds and will probably have to order them off amazon too. Unfortunately nowhere local carries them around here :(

I know a lot of people add them to oatmeal - I guess it doesn't change taste too much but gives it a neat texture. Worth a shot!
