Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I did a lot of running around – shopping and a make-up trial at the Dior counter with one of my bridesmaids (loved their airbrush foundation, but I’m too poor that), spin class, strength training, lots of muching on my low cal peanut butter cookie bites, and a second wedding shower.
This post is a random recap from this weekend – more food focused posts to come later in the week! 😉
Pre-spin class fuel: light wheat toast topped with cocoa bliss (free sample from Artisana) and banana slices. With a bite out of it, of course. I swear it will be my trademark.
Remember how I told you guys about the free yogurt coupon? I picked mine up early last week but finally got around to eating it after a workout.
At 190 calories (and 29 grams of sugar), this is not a yogurt I would buy on a regular basis. Some of those 29 grams come from the natural milk sugar (lactose) in the product, but the third and fourth ingredients on the label are also responsible. It tasted okay but was not as thick as the greek yogurts I typically enjoy. As an RD I can appreciate the active cultures, but many yogurts (not just Activia) contain them.

If you haven’t grabbed your freebie yet, get to the store today – it’s your last chance!
Thanks to the generous people at Dannon for the opportunity to try the product. Has anyone tried the French variety?
Speaking of generosity, my wonderful neighbors all pitched in and threw Adam and I a second shower (you can read about the one hosted by my bridesmaids here). They all contributed to purchase this for our new home:
Next summer will be filled with grilled eats for sure! It’s one of the largest grills I’ve ever seen. They picked it based on a bunch of research and the fact that the one burner is separated – perfect for making sure my veggies don’t co-mingle with whatever meat I might be preparing! 😉
We are so blessed to have such wonderful friends and family – 19 days until we’re husband and wife!
