What I Ate Wednesday {filling up my fridge}

fridgeThis Wednesday I reported my day of eats from B to D – Breakfast to Drinks. And you got a quick glance into my fridge, after I finally filled it up again. Also we had a good little discussion on working out twice a day – what to do if you really crave a run, but know you have a cardio class later that day?

Favorite Eats

No Bake Almond (Peanut) Fudge Bars – Running With Spoons

fudge protein bars

I made a batch of Amandas protein bars yesterday. It was the perfect opportunity to get rid of some of the nearly tasteless peanut butter I purchased recently. Luckily Jay had vanilla whey protein at home and I got 1/3 a cup of it. Then the project nearly failed since no grocery store I went to had rice crispy cereal. I used multigrain crisps instead, which are bigger but just as crunchy and it worked out fine. If you haven’t tried making a similar recipe yet – try this. So quick and easy, it’s a keeper.
