Exercise/ Fitness/ Lunch

Burrito Baby

Mmmm I’m so much happier with Mexican food in my belly :). This morning I had a great 2 mile run on the treadmill and then headed over to St.Pete to meet Ryan for lunch (and bring him his gym bag. lol). On the way, I snacked on a new snack that came in the mail for me to try!


This packet was only 110 calories and was very, very tasty! The almonds and peanuts had an all natural berry glaze on them and there were little pieces of dried berries in the packet as well. It was the perfect snack when you don’t want something large because you are about to eat but still need something after exercise. Also, these are perfect for traveling!

At Burrito Boarder I ordered the same thing I always do–it never lets me down!


My bowl consisted of:

  • black beans
  • grilled fish
  • hot sauce
  • hot peppers
  • lettuce
  • guacamole
  • cilantro
  • onions
  • black bean and corn salsa


You really don’t even need the cheese—its just so good as is! Of course Ryan and I shared a basket of their chips, which are the best chips ever. So hot and perfectly salty!


To drink, I had an organic iced jasmine green tea


Its STILL rainy outside and I love it! I have some herbal tea, my big soft socks on, and am wrapped under a blanket with Dexter. I love my sunshine but the occasional rainy day makes me happy (just not when we are having a garage sale!).

    I love Sahale Snacks! I highly recommend the Valdosta Pecans; they are pecans with black pepper, orange zest and dried cranberries. So delish! Sweet and spicy…

    I love Sahale nuts–they’re are so good, with many creative flavors in the mix. They have a nice selection of flavors too.

    That burrito dish looks amazing with all of that guacomole smothering the dish :D. Mmmm blue corn chips!

    Nothing like being cozy on a rainy day 🙂

    Ooooh, I love the idea of those almonds. I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled for them.
    Funny, when I stopped putting cheese on everything, I noticed I didn’t really miss it!! Although, I do appreciate the bite of sharp cheddar or goat cheese sometimes 😉

    I’ve been seeing those nuts at the market but haven’t been brave enough to try. The combos seemed odd to me. Think I’ll give them a shot.

    Loving the colorful chips- talk about an eye-pleasing dish!

    That package of almonds/peanuts reminds me of this new trail mix of sorts I saw at Trader Joe’s- Peanut Butter and Jelly mix, which the same idea of almonds and peanuts with a berry jam-like coating. 🙂

    I’m glad one of us is enjoying the rain. I’m stuck in the house w/ 3 kids and I’m all out of ideas to entertain. lol, I’m ready to play outside again. There is a place called Roco’s Taco’s near me that is to die for. After looking at your pictures I’m so craving some mexican food now.

    I’m loving the looks of those berry covered nuts. Sounds like the perfect before-workout snack.

    It’s raining down here as well, my dear. Luckily I got my butt in gear and worked out and made it home when it was just sprinkling. Whew!

    Your almond pb&j snacks sound fantastic. It’s like the best combination of goodness in one snack. Sounds like you had a great day. How nice of you to take Ryan’s bag. I guess that’s what good wife’s do. 🙂 Have a great day!

    Huge tex-mex salads are the best! I just made one for din and it was so spicy and delicious but I couldn’t even finish it. Ugh, it’s tastes so good but they are so filling.

    Hope everything is going spectacular with your new job. Congratulations by the way!

    PS- Is it too late to order one of your cookbooks?
