I Will Not Be Afraid…

..of the Peanut Butter Scare!

It’s everywhere now! Anything and everything that contains peanut butter is being recalled. So not fair!

I may or may not have ignored the Peanut Butter Cookie Larabar recall and had one as a snack today.

What can I say, this one is my fave and I refused to let it go to waste. 8 Hours later and I’m still feeling good, I’ll let you know if that changes. :)

Lunch today was an exciting combination of left overs.

From Tuesday night I had the left over Sauteed Kale & Apples and the Autumn Harvest Orzo. I also added some Black Beans for protein.

With the left over eats I had this Gigantic Pear.

This baby was huge and I almost didn’t finish it, but no fruit is too big for me. :)

I made it through the afternoon again with no snack! I’m starting to get the hang of this. I discovered I still really need the morning sack, but my afternoon one can be forgotten. For now at least.

However, I did start making dinner at 5:30 again. Oh well. I don’t mind early dinners though, I enjoy eating no matter what time of day it is.

You have been seeing a lot of the Olive Oil & Rosemary Foccacia in my meals this week. The bread is so fresh I am trying to eat it up before it goes bad. No one like to see bread go to waste. I think I have been creative with my incorporation of the bread in my meals.

Tonight I made Pizza Toast.

I topped a slice of the focaccia with Pizza Sauce and Fat Free Mozz Cheese. I the placed the Pizza Toast under the broiler for 5 minutes. It was AMAZING! The flavorful bread brought so much depth to the over all pizza flavor. I loved it!

With the Pizza Toast I had a serving of roasted veggies.

My roasted veggies included Acorn Squash, Eggplant, Broccoli and Brussel Sprouts. I coated them with EVOO, Salt, Pepper, Cumin & Oregano then baked in the oven at 420 for 20 minutes. Yum! I made extra veggies to complete my quick lunch for tomorrow.

For dessert I finished off the last 1/3 of this Dark Chocolate Bar.

It feels good knowing I got three servings of dessert out of this chocolate bar. I love making good things last :)
