*In an awful Italian accent* Say hello to my little friend:

Trader Joe's Plain Goat Milk Yogurt

Really, Trader Joe would be my bestie, but I don’t have any pictures of him, so this yogurt will substitute as my little friend. Think it’s intimidating? It’s not really. In fact, it’s very similar to cow’s milk.

Goat's Milk Nutrition

See? The nutrition is pretty much the same as a low fat plain cow’s milk yogurt. The only difference is that the flavor is much tangier and, as Avery has taught us, closer to human’s milk explaining the greater toleration for it. If you’re lactose intolerant, you must try goat milk; what’s there to lose? Well, OK, you might still not be able to tolerate it and gas up the place. But you also might be able to and find a new food. But before I got to open this up, the UPS man came.

Naturally Nutty Nut Butters

He never comes after dinner, or knocks on our door(and really intimidatingly); Montana tried barking and sounding tough but it kind of sounded like we were drowning a cat. Anyway, our order from Naturally Nutty came in! I placed this order shortly after Christmas with some gift money and my dad and I both ordered so we could save on shipping. I got something old(the butter toffee), something new(the chocolate cherry), and Katie from the company threw in an unreleased one for me to sample and review! It’s vanilla cinnamon almond butter and it’s all organic! Thanks, Katie, I can’t wait to give it a try(especially since the vanilla almond butter itself is unreal)! OK–back to my little friend:

Goat Milk Yogurt With Gluten Free Peanut Butter And Chocolate Brownie

I swear there was goat milk under that. I still have some gluten free chocolate brownies from New Years in the fridge. Oops. At least they’re still delicious 😀 That one might have been cut a little big, because it kept giving and giving, but it was so good! Also good was Modern Family last night; I had to break from Idol to watch it and it was soooo worth it. Afterwards, I was really boring:

Pumpkin Oatmeal With Nutritional Yeast And Smart Balance Peanut Butter

2 nights in a row and no shame–it’s good. And it’s giving me such ideas for an original recipe; should I get in the kitchen this afternoon? Maybe… I have to say, this bowl was a lot more than I thought it’d be and made me feel a bit sick after eating it all. Or maybe that was just because I had the thought “Hey, the nutritional yeast kind of looks like dandruff” half way through. It’s disgusting, but doesn’t it? I should stop talking before I convince you out of eating it.

This morning I did the same workout as yesterday, which was great! When i did this my first week on vacation just once, it put me out of exercise for a few days; clearly it’s been building strength and endurance. Yesterday I didn’t need anything as a workout snack but today I felt famished half-way through.

Cookie Dough Luna Protein

I’m reusing this photo from a few days ago, only because it looks so good! And it was 🙂 I should just buy a case of these protein bars and maybe save 60 cents that way. Today’s workout got me sweating! But sweat is good; embrace the sweat 🙂 It means you’re doing it right. Obviously, a quick shower was in order before breakfast.

Pumpkin Oatmeal With Honey-Maple Peanut Butter

Goat Milk Yogurt With Raspberry Preserves

My little friend returned! But first I had some pumpkin oatmeal with protein honey maple peanut butter for some delicious and healthy fats. And then along that I had raspberry jam over goat milk; these two flavors were entirely meant for each other, like peanut butter and jelly. I do sweeten the goat milk yogurt a tad with vanilla stevia but not so much so as to lose the tanginess.

I tivoed a good couple of hours worth of shows last night, so I guess I know what I’ll be doing next. But first 2 awesome bloggers are having giveaway. Happy 1 year anniversary to Brandi! And win some Chia seeds(how exotic) from Avery.

I am so jealous that you have access to a Trader Joes! UGH…I wish they would come to Austin!!

Hey website reccomendation for you (you probably already know about it) http://www.veganessentials.com. This website is awesome. I got my husband some kickin’ flip flops made from old tires! Pretty cool!

everything looks awesome! Im so totally curious about goats yogurt. Im gonna have to swing by the TJs and scope that out! I love naturally nutty too!! I think my fav has got to be the vanilla almond. I know to know what you think about it. Also I havent tried the cherry chocolate yet so I hope you review it=) Great eats too! Have a wonderful day!

That’s the yogurt I use 🙂

I try to eat more goat milk dairy then cows dairy (goats cheese, goat yogurt etc). It’s better in so many ways!

That Naturally Nutty looks delicious!

so jelly in the belly of the naturally nutty order!!

the pumpkin oatmeal looks very pumpkin-y! graet color! thanks for the review on the yogurt!

Sigh. How I miss Trader Joes. 😦

That creamy yogurt + raspberries looks divine!

Goats yogurt?? Totally intrigued. And that nutbutter had me drooling. I’d like to eat a jar for dinner please.

i’m wary of goat’s milk, but since you make such a convincing case for it maybe i’ll have to try it

Those Luna protein bars are just rediculous, aren’t they?! I can’t wait to try the other flavors as well because the cookie dough was too good to be true.

I’m very intrigued by the nutritional yeast topped oats! Sounds interesting!!

Oh Naturally Nutty. As soon as I have a job I am going to go crazy ordering things from their website 🙂

Barney butter samples are already gone! Boo!

now i have to go watch that movie. … or at least youtube that clip haha!! pumpkin oatmeal with honey maple pb? sounds like something i should look into 🙂

OMG The slew of Naturally Nutty Nut Butters you have…wow. Food envy!

The Cookie Dough luna. I can only find PB here. Not that that’s a bad thing 🙂 but of course i love cookie dough!!!!!!!

And the raspberry preserves? LICK!

Thx for the contest shout out too 🙂

Ever since I won a contest and got to try one of the naturally nutty butters I’ve want to try all the rest of them…but so much $$$$. this is when i wish i were a millionaire…so i could buy all the pb i wanted. oh to wish…

and i wish i had TJ’s in FL…i would totally try that…wonder if you could strain it to make it more like greek yogurt, and to remove the lactose for those that have problems with it! again, I can only wish…

It was a sad sad day when I finished up my naturally nutty vanilla almond butter stash. The new flav sounds divine! Katie is such a gem 🙂
