I love trying new foods

Instead of listing everything that I have ate the last three days, here are some snapshots of some new things I have tried and some old items that I continue to love.

Stove top oats with yummy berries -

After wanting to try these every time I pass them, I went and bought these after a 5 mile run the other day. I had been craving tortilla chips for weeks, and these really hit the spot. Yes Food Should Taste Good, and these surely did!

I can't get enough of Chobani with granola or cereal. While on the topic of greek yogurt, go here if you want a chance to win free coupons for Oikos.

My Honest Foods order came from Amazon. I had tried the Blueberry Granola Planks before but never any of their other products. I did sample half of one of the Farmer's Trail Mix Bars before my workout yesterday and loved it. These products are wonderful and another lawyer blogger is giving some away! If you aren't lucky enough to win some, Amazon is still offering the buy 2 get 1 free deal that I used to purchase these three items.

I found this at the store and had to buy it. It tasted like a peanut butter z-bar, but maybe a little better. I love finding new Clif products!! My dream job may just be working for this company.

Since I am trying to save money and not go to Starbucks anymore (although we are stockholders, so I should convince my husband that is a good enough reason for me to continue my habit), I have been enjoying homemade lattes. These are much better when my own Barista makes them (aka - my husband), but I am learning.

Meloncauliflower's, another blogger that is a healthy lawyer, is giving away some Barney Butter. While you are at her blog, read about the lengths she will go to for this amazing nut butter.
Have a great Easter weekend.

Are their bars just as good?

Where do you buy your Chobani yogurt? I also live in Pittsburgh, but I haven't been able to find it!!

Hi there! Just stopped by your blog - the name got my attention. I'm nearly finished with law school and am relieved to see there are some healthy lawyers out there. The ones I see look mostly overweight and stressed out!

Your berry oats look wonderful!

Hey Lauren - I actually buy it at the Sam's club at Mt. Nebo Point (north hills) by a case of 12. It only has the fruity kinds (peach, blueberry, strawberry). At Sam's it is only $12, so $1 each!! So find someone with a Sam's card if you don't have one, it is an awesome deal. I have also seen it once at Penn Mac in the strip by individual cups.

I love the name of that line "food should taste good" ! That's a good enough reason to go out and buy some right?? :)
