Errand Day and A "Cookie"

happy hump day! today was a day for errands for little man and i. i really wanted us to get out and go on a walk too, but the rain. won't. stop. boooooo! so after getting soaking wet while we were out and about, we spent the afternoon in.

breakfast was one of my tasty green smoothies. the blueberry banana smoothie, which i absolutely love. i was skeptical at first, blueberries and peanut butter....who does that? but it works. trust me. if you haven't tried it, just. do. it.

the little guy and i were out and about going to costco, the post office, pharmacy, you get the idea. and then my mid morning snack was also a winner!!! i made apple "cookies" with apple slices, almond butter and topped them with a little granola for some extra crunch and they were awesome. if any of you guys have little ones out there and want to give them a healthy "cookie" i highly recommend this snack. i posted the "recipe" if you can call it that below :)

Lunch was leftover pasta and chickpea soup from Eat. Live. Run. This soup is great and it's easy to blend up and give to little man for lunch as well. I ended up blending about half the soup because it made so much and freezing it for Lincon's meals. You can find the recipe here.

My afternoon snack was more of my favorite Boom Chicka Pop White Cheddar Popcorn. While husband was here, he saw me snacking on it, and he was all "you really like that popcorn don't you" and i was like, "what is it that obvious?" needless to say i eat this stuff a lot. ;0p

After putting the little guy down, i ended up eating leftover curry that was not so tasty, and then snuck in a few thin mint girl scout cookies. both went undocumented.

not too bad of a day, my calories ended up coming in at 1,650.

Apple "Cookies"
Serves 1-2 (depending on how little your kiddo is)

1 apple
nut butter of your choice

Slice the apple into "cookies." spread the nut butter of your choice on top and sprinkle with granola.

Other great topping options would be chocolate chips, coconut, peanut butter chips.
