I Can’t Pass Those Bars

I’ll never be a lawyer, so I don’t have to worry about passing this bar.

And it will be a while until I can get into this kind of bar. But there’s another kind that if I were a cowboy I’d say I just can’t quit…

Chocolate bars, of course! This bar from Alter-Eco was another one I the Easter Bunny grabbed or my basket; it was on a recommendation from a friend, and since I hadn’t yet found a dark chocolate mint bar I liked I thought it was worth the shot…

Good choice, Mr. Bunny! This bar in a matter of minutes became one of my favorites. I don’t know where to start; the flavor was perfectly minty; the raw sugar added an amazing subtle crunch to it. It was just perfection! I had to review this one here, if only to remind myself one day of how much I loved it.

I also had(while watching The Biggest Loser, no less), a bowl of oatmeal. Since oats are all about the toppings, I picked out two winners here between Justin’s Chocolate Almond Butter and Crofter’s Europe Superfruit Spread

Suuuh-weet. I forgot how good warm jam on oatmeal can be; it doesn’t sound appetizing, but it’s yum! And the sweetness of both of these spreads was unreal. I guess you can never go wrong with 2 good things.

You would think sleeping in would be a good thing, too; but I’ve never felt more behind than this morning 😦 It’s almost 10, and I haven’t run, gotten all the work done for today or tomorrow, and am just now finishing off this breakfast.

On a simple oatmeal/oatbran blend I added a scoop of Mighty Maple. What was much more interesting was the pomegranate yogurt topped with Nuts About Granola‘s Ambrosia granola. The flavors of this unique “granola of the Gods” are pomegranate, mango, and walnut. I loved the flavors from mango and cinnamon, which really made these feel both earthy and godly. It was also great to read how a lot of the ingredients were local to the company; touches like that are so inspiring.

What time do you wake up? And when do you run? And how does it all fit together? I’m very curious, clearly. There are only so many hours in the day, unfortunately, and today mine will not be spent in the kitchen, but luckily I have enough leftovers/fast foods to make that not an issue
