A wet run and you need to try this bread….

It is official, I have found my new favorite bread.  My MIL made us toast this morning before our run and I can’t get over how delicious this stuff is.  It is about 80 calories a slice with 3 grams of fiber and 3 grams of protein.  So good, especially when slathered with butter and strawberry jam.  The only bad thing about the bread….it is from Trader Joe’s.  Wherever we end up moving for the fall BETTER have a TJ’s.  That is actually the second thing we are looking for when it comes to where Billy goes to law school, the first being good running trails.

We set out on our run this morning and even though it looks kind of cold, it wasn’t.  It was perfect outside and the rain actually felt really good.  I was jealous of this dogs rain coat.

I did 4 miles around the lake and then ran the 3 miles (straight downhill) back home with Billy.  When we got back my MIL was doing 30 Day Shred so of course I had to do it too.  I still can’t get over how Jillian can make me so sore after just 20 minutes.

Goodness my MIL is such a good example.  Next thing she was doing was making a smoothie with broccoli, asparagus, celery, protein powder, ice and berries.  She usually adds in spinach or kale but was out of it this morning.  She offered me some but the thought of broccoli still makes me want to die a little.

We are off for a fun day of shopping, eating and movie watching.  Hope you are having an amazing Friday and see you soon.

A sneak peak into the top and most important shelf of my in-laws freezer.  Billy, I PROMISE I married you for you and not just because your family is absolutely perfect:

It’s as though they read my blog or something and know that I have lost my love for chocolate and switched over to all things caramel and vanilla.

We are going to make a stop at Trader Joe’s, tell me what I NEED to get!

Your IL’s are the best!!
My TJ staples are:
British multi grain English muffins..a must!
Red pepper or Cilantro/japeno hummus
pizza dough
Honey wheat pretzel sticks (which I think you already get!)
honey/sesame seed covered almonds
their brand of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
hmmm..I know there is more, but I’m blanking!

They have a honey flaxseed version of that bread at our Costco! We buy 8 loaves at a time and freeze it. Even the kids love it!

KENDRA…you just saved my life. I had no idea Costco had it, can’t wait to buy it at home now!

We actually have the Multi-grain with Omega-3 version at our Costco (CO). It’s hidden in the bread section, 2 loaves for 6.99 :-)

yep, our costco in san diego has a sprouted alpine valley bread, not sure if there are more options.

Ha, sounds like pretty sweet in-laws.
I LOVE TJ’s…they make these chocolate covered almonds dusted with turbinado sugar and sea salt, they ARE SO GOOD.

I am OBSESSED with those sea salt almonds – that’s what prompts me to go to TJ’s when I’m out!

=O That SHELF.

I currently live far, far away from a TJ’s but where I used to live and where I’m soon moving to have them — thank goodness! I love to grab the chocolate covered edamame and the chocolate covered pomegranate arils. Trust me on this. I also love their frozen appetizers and prepared foods, but that would be hard to take back on the plane :)

Cookie Butter! It’s great in oatmeal, by the spoonful, or with your finger! :)

I kept staring at that shelf of ice-cream wishing it was mine. Still staring.

COME OVER and have some with me:)

Wow! That ice cream sounds AMAZING! Right now in my freezer I have ribs for a cookout this weekend – my Dad and Grandma are driving out to see us for a few days, and barbequed ribs sound SO good. Can’t wait! My plan right now for tonight is to clean my house for my company and take care of my little girl because she seems to not be feeling well. I hate it when she’s sick, but she is such a cuddle-bug when she doesn’t feel good. I love her cuddles :) No TJ’s near me, but if they have Aussie Pies (in the freezer section at Whole Foods) get them. They are so delicious!! I’ve tried the Thai flavor – it was vegan – the box of them were gone in about 2.3 seconds.

Ribs are the absolute best and that is so fun that your Dad and Gma are coming out:) Hope your little girl gets better asap!

1. I LOVE their peanut butter stuffed (salted) pretzels and also their applesauce that has chunks in it! There are rumors that one is moving to Austin, but I’m not trying to get my hopes up.

2. Honestly, I just want to sleep. I’ve been spending waay too much time at work this week. Maybe I’ll branch out and play a board game with the bf? If I’m feeling motivated…

3. I don’t think I have one of those!

4. The best thing in my freezer is tilapia fillets. Is that sad? I love those. :)

Reply

I hope that they go to Austin for you!!! I need that applesauce asap! Tilapia is incredible!

Here’s a picture so you can find the jar more easily!

At the TJs I’ve gone to, they always try to hide it on a bottom shelf.

IF a long-awaited paycheck arrives, we’re going to see 21 Jump Street!! Jonah Hilllllll (think I’m supposed to be saying Channing Taaaaatum but who cares Jonah Hillllll).

If not, The Duellists at home. Men with swords. Win/win.

My dog is also jealous of that raincoat.

I think my comments have been going into cyberspace but one of these times it will go through :)… anyway, I 100% support your law school search criteria — who cares about the school itself? TJ’s and running trails are far more important. ;)

Reply

YAY!! Finally, comment is there! I swear it’s been happening for like two weeks now!

Friday night plans include making homemade pizza to fuel for tomorrow’s long run. Best thing in my freezer-Ben and Jerry’s Phish Food Frozen Yogurt. Hands down. (I hear that is great long run fuel too!)

Reply

They have that same bread at Costco! Or, at least at my Costco in Phoenix

Reply

You must get TJ’s cat cookies! They are amazing!!

Reply

You are so right…I am pretty sure those are the best things that TJ’s has!
