Return of the Sweet

by Courtney on December 21, 2011

Can I just say that I am so glad you guys are loving Giveaway Week?!? I’m loving reading all of your comments on how you’re going to incorporate protein powder, commit to fit in 2012, and chow down on chia seeds. So much fun…and there’s still two days left! WOOT!

With all the giveaway talk this week, I haven’t gotten much of a chance to fill ya’ll in on the food end of things, so let me show ya some of the goodies I packed up for today.

Today marked the return of the sweet tuna salad! I’m tellin’ you guys…this stuff is good. REAL good; and it’s the best when scooped up with Wheat Thins. So much better than on a sandwich, IMO. You know, you’ll probably never guess what else I put in today’s batch…

Chia seeds! :)

Okay, maybe you would have guessed. I mean, we have been talking about them quite a bit today and all. Couldn’t taste ‘em at all, but I loved knowing I had some extra nutrients up in there.

I also snacked on a super messy, but super juicy and delicious pear,

and – check this out – a new flavor of Larabar… Cappuccino!

The nice peeps over at Larabar sent me a box of these earlier in the week to sample, as it’s going to be one of the new flavors that they’re launching in 2012. Be on the lookout folks, this flavor was pretty darn fantastic!

Oh boy…good news! Looks like I’m gettin’ out of work a little early tonight. Maybe I’ll get a chance to watch the American Horror Story season finale?? That show is just ca-raaaaazy!

Question for the Evening:

Sweet tuna salad – what do you think? Would you try it? ;)

the Cappuccino LaraBar looks amazing! So jealous you had one and cannot wait to try! I beat it would taste great paired with a great cup of coffee for a midday pick-me-up!

I’m not a big fan of tuna, therefore I probably wouldn’t try it.

I’m not a fan of tuna (unless it’s grilled tuna steaks) – but I would probably try it if it was offered to me.

i think i’d totally be a fan of sweet tuna salad! i’ve never made it before, but i think it sounds delicious. it makes me think of a cranberry-chicken salad i’ve had before that is on the sweeter side.

cappucino larabar?! sounds amazing. i need to find them!

yum..that tuna salad looks delicious! I’m glad to hear you cant really taste chia seeds. reminds me of throwing spinach into a smoothie..can’t taste it, but you feel good knowing it’s there! it just me, or does that pear look awfully bumpy? haha..i bet it tasted great though!


6 Lena @Fit on the Rocks December 21, 2011 at 8:59 pm

I haven’t tried, but I’d give it a shot. I love tuna, salad, and tuna salad haha. Cappuccino Lara Bars?! Do they have any caffeine in them? That would be win-win.

Oh goodness! I need to try this new larabar flavor!!! I love cappuccino flavored anything :)


8 Colleen @ Jimmy Choos on the Treadmill December 21, 2011 at 9:23 pm

I’m sometimes allergic to tuna fish (I know, it’s really weird!), so I would have to be feeling extremely adventurous. The Larabar on the other hand…I’d try that right away!


9 Kristin @ FoodFash December 21, 2011 at 9:31 pm

You know… I roasted a squash today and stuffed it with tuna salad to mimic one of my favorite restaurant lunches. They usually do some kind of fruit and nut chicken salad and I wondered how a sweeter tuna salad would taste. I’ll have to experiment!

I love sweet tuna salad! I make my chicken salad pretty much the same exact way! I do cranberries, celery, apple, onion, celery salt and pepper.

I don’t like fish, but I think I’d like this recipe with chicken instead! And I love me me some Wheat Thins :)


14 Elizabeth @TheBareMidriff December 21, 2011 at 11:48 pm

I would absolutely try it! I know this sounds gross to some people, but my dad used to fix us tuna fish sandwiches with cinnamon-raisin bread and iceberg lettuce. So I totally get the sweet-savory tuna combo!

Wow cappuccino – flavored Larabars sounds great…I’m imagining it to be like a coffee walnut cake? Or is that too much wishful thinking ;)!

I don’t like tuna, but I would try sweet chicken salad :). I’ve mixed my chicken salad with plain Greek yogurt, dried cranberries and chopped pecans (or walnuts) before, and it’s really good!

I would love to try Chia seeds :) I think they seem so easy to incorporate in anything, really – but for starters, I’m thinking morning oats would be a great meal to try them in!

PS – the capp flavored Larabars sound AMAZING!


22 Hope December 22, 2011 at 8:11 am

I’d be willing to try it. I don’t remember the last time I had tuna salad.

Those Larabars sound delicious! :)
