A Favorite Snack As Of Late

by Courtney on June 28, 2012

It appears as if SOMEbody must have used up all of their energy this morning


This was the site I came home to after finishing up a shift at the gym this morning. I had quite a few chuckles to myself because he just looked so darn cute, funny and comfy, all at the same time.


Are all of my non-cat-loving friends out there sick of seeing him yet today? Winking smile

While I was at work this morning, I had a little bit of time to spare so I hopped on an elliptical for an easy 30 minutes while watching Top Gun in the cardio cinema. Good, classic movie…I have no problem working out with a little pre-crazy Tom Cruise in my sights.

Once I got home, I put together one of my favorite mid-morning snacks as of late.


Pairing a banana SOYJOY bar with a little bit of peanut butter is where it’s at.


I haven’t tried the peanut butter with any other flavors besides banana, but I think the strawberry would go pretty fantastic with some Nutella. Just sayin’.

FYI: From now until July 15, 2012, SOYJOY is offering a free shipping coupon code for the SOYJOY e-store! The code: SUMMERJOY.

A couple hours later, after working on some client programs, I took a break to make some lunch.


A buffalo chicken wrap made with avocado, lettuce, tomato, and mustard, all on a LaTortilla Factory whole wheat wrap. On the side, I also threw together a random mix of leftover corn and sugar snap peas that I found in the fridge.


Definitely a delicious meal.


Now it’s about time to get back to work…is the day flying by for anyone else? Yikes!

Yumm banana and PB is such a perfect combo…well, actually anything with PB is pretty darn close to perfect! Also, I have never been a huge cat person but after reading your blog regularly I have been seriously thinking about getting a kitten when I move into my apartment for senior year! My roommate is totally down and I feel like it is the perfect pet for our living situation :)

That wrap looks delish! I haven’t quite found my “wrapping groove” yet. Often when I try to make my own wraps at home I just don’t like them! I never know quite what I do wrong.

Your lunch looks delicious! So filling and healthy. Anything with avocado, is a favorite in my book.

Never thought of dipping a bar in peanut butter! I love bars crumbled and sprinkled over some Greek yogurt though. :) An Iced Oatmeal Cookie Clif KidZ Bar over some vanilla Greek yogurt and fruit tastes like dessert!

I think Cody is the most adorable cat ever…unfortunately I am very allergic to cats. I love looking at the pics you post of him. He does get himself into some very “funny” positions.

I noticed you have Jif Peanut Butter, usually you have Skippy, do you like both brands or was there a “couldn’t pass up sale on Jif”?


5 Courtney June 28, 2012 at 2:30 pm

Haha, you’re so right! I almost always buy Skippy but my store hasn’t been carrying it for the past few weeks! Jay and I actually decided that I think we’ve been converted…we’re both totally loving the Jif!


6 Sana June 28, 2012 at 2:23 pm

Your wraps always look so perfect, mine are usually sloppy and messy!

That is my absolute favorite kind of peanut butter!


8 Khushboo June 28, 2012 at 2:28 pm

Peanut butter & banana is such a winning combo! I think you need to add in a layer of Nutella next time…take it to the next level ;)

I am a HUGE cat person and am so glad that you post pictures of Cody because since I’m away from home (college) I never get to see my cats so Cody is my cat fix!! :)

I don’t mind looking at cats, as long as it is through the computer :-)! I am HIGHLY allergic to them so I kind of want to run when I see them in person. Kind of sad too cause I think kittens are the cutest little things….

Usually I can’t stand bananas (unless it’s banana bread), but my taste buds totally change once some peanut butter is thrown on top!! Yummy snack! :)

My cat sleeps just like that. He’s fallen asleep in chairs before, tried to roll over like than and rolled right off the chair! He’s quite the character.
