Pretty quiet afternoon/evening. 

After picking FH up from work I was ready for an afternoon pick-me-up.  I grabbed a couple of my Valentine’s peanut butter cups


Um…confession…I sorta ate the rest of the tube.  Seven of those little buggers.  Ah well!

While deciding what to make for dinner I decided to bust open these Snapea Crisps that Krista sent me…


Curious little munchies.  Reasonable ingredient list.  A bit high on fat and calories considering they are essentially baked peas…


But tasty!  in an odd sort of way.  I think they are puffed or popped somewhat like a popchip. I dunno. 


Dinner was a bit weird…but it was one of those stand in front of the open fridge and stare kind of days.  I just couldn’t figure out what I wanted.  Not really hungry for a meal, but in need of more than puffed peas!

I decided veggies were the way to go and grabbed a variety for roasting.  Broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and cabbage.

Roughly chopped and tossed with EVOO, balsamic, maple syrup and s&p. Roasted in a 425 degree oven for 25 minutes (stirred part way through).


With five minutes left I sprinkled on some navy beans we had in the fridge…maybe 1/2 cup or so…


It was actually pretty yummy!  Got in a couple of veggie servings, some protein, and have a dish of leftovers.  Nice.


While sipping Rooibos tea I decided to add to the already fairly snackerific day and opened up the box of Kashi Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Cookies

Soooooo deeeeeelish!  Soft, chewy, hearty, chocolately, oatmealy goodness!  nom.  :)  A little small for the 130 calories per cookie, but as long as I don’t sit down with the whole box, I can handle it.

Ohhh, I think that’s a challenge!

Oh I so hope we get those cookies in Canada!

Jaime: There are actually three flavors. The Healthy Trails is also very good. Maybe you will see them in Canada soon. Hope so. It's kind of hard to eat only 1....
