This morning I switched up my pre-workout snack a bit.  I usually go with a slice of toasted Ezekiel bread with hummus spread on top.  Over the weekend, I was on the hunt for another toast spread to switch it up from my daily dose of hummus.  In particular, I was looking for something sweeter–like a jam!  As with all my packaged food shopping, I was determined to find a product with a short ingredient list and no weirdo, unpronounceable ingredients.  After searching high and low, I found a winner–Bonnie’s Jams.  Although it’s not “perfect”, it’s the best I could find so far.


You can see the ingredients are simple:  raspberries, sugar, lemon juice.  Although they do add sugar, their website claims they seek to use less than 1/2 the sugar of commercial jams.  And the flavor was delicious!  Bravo, Bonnie.

After the gym, I had my standard protein shake…


…followed by the LAST portion of my black and red bean soup for lunch.  Finally!


Before my afternoon workout, I was still feeling pretty hungry, so I snacked on a leftover slice of spinach Florentine flatbread from Fridays as well as a coconut date roll.



I was absolutely ravenous after my step class and just wanted to go crazy on some food, soooo we went to a pizza buffet.  🙂  whoopsie!


I ended the day with a delicious bowl of “overnight” oats.
