Aside from peanut butter, another food I cannot seem to control myself around is granola (and cereal… and cookies… and ice cream…).
Fortunately Galaxy Granola uses applesauce instead of oil when baking the granola, eliminating a lot of unnecessary fat and keeping the calorie content of the granola lower than many others. The best part? It’s still 100 percent delicious!
After dinner last night I dug into each bag. I just had to try them all, right? 😉
My favorite was the Vanilla Almond, but the Not Sweet Vanilla flavor was a close second.
I incorporated the latter into my breakfast this morning, topping a bowl of thawed frozen strawberries and Greek yogurt with the crunchy goodness.
I think this granola would make a great base in a trail mix with nuts, chocolate chips and dried fruit. Yum!
Today’s workout was one of my “hop around” workouts that I do when I’m not feelin’ anything in particular.
- 15 min. stair master
- 10 min. adaptive motion trainer
- 25 min. elliptical
It was good… not great… but it made me sweat and that’s what counts, right?
My walk with Sadie after the gym was drizzly, and Sadie stopped to shake off the wetness every other minute.
(These pictures are from last night’s trip to the dog park, but I didn’t want to overwhelm last night’s post with the billions of Sadie pictures I took. 🙂 )
Despite the rain, we managed to have a decent walk, but it was cut a little short due to the inclement weather. We followed up the walk with several rounds of indoor fetch. Fortunately nothing was broken in the process.
Even though I still have a snack to eat in between now and lunch, I am anxiously awaiting lunchtime so I can dig into dinner leftovers!
Are you a leftovers lover or a leftovers hater?
I’m a leftovers lover fo’ sho’!
