WIAW: Chocolate Peppermint Stick Luna Bar

Around this time of year, I’m on the hunt for a few key food items: Starbucks Christmas Blend coffee, green and red Christmas themed M&Ms, Christmas tree shaped Reese Cups and this.

Yum! This may be the best flavor yet. It’s pretty seasonal, of course, but definitely worth the arsenic.

Now, on to WIAW.


I wanted some whole wheat pasta, but I didn’t have any marinara. Luckily, I always keep canned tomatoes in my pantry, so I topped my pasta with that and 1 cup of steamed spinach. So filling and much better than marinara sauce. For a snack, I had a VitaTop with a cup of coffee and a big ol’ banana. This is a flippin’ power snack, my friends. Finally, for breakfast, I had one of my happy omelets, completed with a whole wheat English muffin. Yum!

Well, that’s all the food ogling I can stand for one day.

My Healthy Tip of the Day brought to you by lifehack.org: When you’ve got time – at your desk, driving the car, cooking food – do some deep breathing. Inhale and count up to 5 seconds, hold it for a few seconds, and release slowly. Exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide is one of the best things we can do for our blood and cells.
