Heyyyy, Macaroon-ah.

*which is obviously being sing to the tune of Macarena, but I digress.*

Good afternoon bloggies!  How is Tuesday treating you?!

My breakfast this morning got started last night, as I took a lonely and almost empty jar of Trader Joe’s Almond Butter…

And added an arsenal of goodies to create some pretty bangin’ Overnight Oats In A Jar.

Star ingredient being of course chocolate themed:

The oats consisted of:

  • 1/2 Cup Oats
  • 1 Cup Almond Milk
  • 1 TBSP Polaner Peach Jam
  • 2 TBSP Chocolate Goji Lovin’ ;-)
  • Dollop -o- Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Diced Red Pear
  • 2 TBSP Chia Seeds

Tucked those bad boys in and kissed them goodnight.

Through the magic of blog world (mind blowing, isn’t it?!) I fast forward to the morning, and the oats that were waiting to be shoveled into my face:

Nothin’ like some oat goodness on the road.

Waste not want not…do I know how to clean a jar of nut butter, or what?!?!

Breakfast, check.

Headed for my KidFit class which was hilarious.  We played “Musical Chairs” with the volume turned up.  They had to do jumping jacks/crazy dances as they jogged around the chairs.  It was high-larious.

Headed right to the YMCA after KidFit to sub a STEP class.  Considering I have no idea how to teach Step, they were subjected to weights/cardio/spin.  It was a very random, yet magnificent combo which produced massive groans/sweat.  Love it!  Also got to escape to Targizzle briefly with this cutie:

We “Y”……do you?!?!

Once it was finally time to briefly visit the casa, I was inspired by Ashlei to attempt a second round at my macaroons.  Last time I made them they were a bit dry, so I moistened it up a bit by adding an extra egg white, some Almond Milk, and RAW HONEY to the mixture.  This Raw Honey is seriously YAH-mazing.

Put those babies in the oven…

And ta-daaaaa!

I am being good, and taking them to work to have everyone taste test!  There may have been a couple that didn’t make it to the container.  They….um…..fell on the floor???  Yes, that’s it….they totally fell on the floor.  ;-)

Lunch was pretty epic too.  Consisted of left over Thai (veggie fried rice) and steamed broccoli goodness, all heated up:

It Wok’d my world.  (ba dum chiiiiiii)

Now it’s time for work!

Random Tyler fact:

I have been jamming this joint DOWN all day today belting this song out at the top of my lungs:

So my question is:

What is your favorite song/thing to do/sing when you are home alone?!?

PS…….want free chocolate?  Thought so.  Click here.
