I have a bad habit of completely neglecting most of the food that’s in my freezer.
Since I regularly use the English muffins, bagels and frozen fruit that I store in the freezer, most of the other food inevitably gets pushed to the back where I completely forget about it.
Yesterday as I grabbed the big bag of frozen strawberries to make myself a smoothie for an afternoon snack, I caught a glimpse of an orange cranberry Barookie!
A few months ago, the kind people from EONI sent me several Barookies to sample and I put them directly into the freezer since they were frozen when they arrived.
Yesterday I pulled the orange cranberry Barookie out of the abyss that is my freezer and let it thaw overnight so by 10 a.m. today, I had a delicious morning snack!
Barookies are all-natural energy bars and taste like a cross between a super thick granola bar and a cookie. They were quite filling and I headed out to a lunchtime Taste of Ocala committee meeting feeling quite satisfied.
The meeting lasted about two hours and as I was leaving, a fellow committee member suggested stopping for frozen yogurt afterward and I happily agreed.
I call this my chocolate peanut butter bomb!
I filled my cup with chocolate and peanut butter frozen yogurt and topped it with a myriad of peanut butter and chocolate-flavored toppings.
The view from underneath the whipped cream…
Unappetizing photo, but it tasted great!
When I arrived back home, I wasn’t really in the mood to throw together a plated lunch and my appetite wasn’t exactly raging.
I decided to make myself a simple smoothie and called it lunch.
Into the blender went:
- 1 1/2 frozen banana
- 1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1 cup milk
Vegetables are on the menu for tonight’s dinner!
