Friday (Food) Favorites

Hi everyone! Excited it is friday? I am! I wanted to share some of my food favorites today! Lots of yummy snack ideas for you πŸ™‚ so I hope you like them as much as I do! I also hope you have a great Friday! I am getting a mani/pedi with my mom this afternoon before going to babysit for the night.

Target Trail Mix: I have been eating this for years but the Dark Chocolate EspressoΒ is the best, I always have to talk myself out of buying it because it does not last long! Calls for 9 servings, I add cashews to the mix and it still only lasts me 5-6 days and that is only letting myself have it in the morning because of the espresso beans. πŸ™‚ so yummy. Good thing it isn’t as expensive as Fresh Market trail mix or else I would need another intervention!

Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans: yeah kinda the same as above except I buy extra espresso beans too and add more to the mix. I just find there isn’t enough of them in the mix for my liking. I have been eating these for months they are awesome. A little chocolate and caffeine/coffee beans before a workout? sounds perfect to me. I usually grab a handful of these on the way out the door.

Cashew Butter: I think this is my all time favorite nut butter. Maybe since cashews are my favorites nuts too? The Trader Joe’s brand is my favorite so far. I tried another kind, my cousin got me a jar for Christmas, and it just is not as good and costs $4 more! Trader Joe’s #forthewin

 

confession- this is not even all the nut butters we have right now... not all are open either for the record

Guacamole: or just avocados in general. I love them so much! I rarely bought them at school because they are so darn expensive but since I have been home I have eaten so many! I love that the Whole Food’s in Annapolis almost always has fresh made guac and samples too! The WF guac in New Orleans was always a little brown :/

King Cake! Yupp, I decided to order one from New Orleans, overnight mail- only option. I figured I paid to ship one to Shane twice, why not order one for myself πŸ™‚ I mean I even carried one on the plane last year when going to NYC in January. They are SO worth it. No matter where I am I will continue to celebrate Carnival season!

So those are my favorites right now, excluding the ‘normal’ stuff. We all know we eat fruits and vegetables basically everyday. I love blueberries and seafood… you know that by now? So these are the special stuff πŸ™‚ Hope you enjoyed them!

Who else loves Whole Foods guacamole?? I think it is the best!

or anyone else buy the target trail mix?? the cashew caramel is a close second and I have been able to hold out on buying the cinnamon roll mix they have now.

  1. Target trail mix gets me every time! I have been buying the raw mixed nuts lately, I like to roast them and make different kinds in trail mixes and others I make some yummy nut butters out of it! So so good and so so cheap!
