As much as I enjoy weekends full of barbecues, treats, and other fun eats, it definitely puts me a little on the sluggish side. It’s amazing how much of a difference I feel when I don’t get my typical veggie/fruit/healthy protein intake.
Knowing in advance that tonight’s dinner is going to be similar to this weekend’s eats (more on that tonight 😉 ) I wanted to get in lots of the good stuff at lunch!
I started things off with a delicious roasted veggie salad!
I topped some romaine lettuce with grape tomatoes, and a big serving of the roasted veggies that I cooked up yesterday. LOVE having them all ready to go!
I also added in a raspberry flavored Chobani, which I must say is right up there at the top of my favorites list! This flavor was totally YUMMY all by itself (I usually like some “mix-ins” in my yogurt…aka, “yogurt messes”) 🙂
I rounded things out with a new flavor of my Livin’ Spoonful Crackers: Coconut Curry!
Ok, so I’m not gonna lie…I’m a little bit of a wimp when it comes to any sort of spicy food. Yup, mild salsa can sometimes leave me pining for a a big glass of water. So when I tried this flavor on its own, it definitely had my grabbing for my water bottle! However, when I crushed them up and mixed them into my veggie salad, it was a whole other story! That was delish! 😉
Ok, so has anyone seen the “blast from the past” trend that’s making its way back???

Who remembers Jellies?!?! 😉
My gosh, how I loved my jellies back in elementary school. I longed for them, just HAD to have them! I can remember my favorite pair was dark blue with sparkles. I wore them with everything – dresses, mesh shorts, jeans, pajamas, you name it! Oh yes, I was rockin’ the style! I guess as the years passed, I had just forgotten about the jelly…but now they’re back and they’re all over!
Tons of stores and designers are now jumping on the bandwagon, creating their own unique styles with a wide range of price tags…
Gap – $12.50
Even Louis Vuitton has joined the trend…coming in with a hefty $340 price tag!! Can you imagine?!?!
As for me, I’m not sure I’ll be jumping back on the recreated “Jelly” bandwagon. While I adored them when I was 10, I’d say my styles have changed a bit from then.
But what do YOU think about the jelly shoes?
Are they a “Do” or a “DON’T”??? 🙂
