NEW KIND Bars

Bars, bars, bars. They are the perfect little snack on the go or 3pm pick-me-up. I eat one almost every day on my way to the gym. It holds me over until din din.

I recently got the opportunity to try two brand new flavors of KIND bars: Caramel Almond & Sea Salt and Dark Chocolate Mocha Almond.

I feel like the company has been reading my mind or something. They knew exactly what flavors I would mix together if I had to pick some new creations to eat. (Oh hey, if you are listening… add some peanut butter too. :P )

KIND Bars

This means KIND now has 8 flavors that contain 5g of sugar or less and nothing artificial. Each bar is also crafted from a foundation of whole almonds.

Caramel Almond & Sea Salt

The Caramel Almond & Sea Salt tastes like dessert. The bar is a blend of savory sea salt and sweet caramel drizzled over almonds.

Dark Chocolate Mocha Almond

The Dark Chocolate Mocha Almond is made with dark roast coffee and whole almonds blended with honey and drizzled in dark chocolate. It definitely tasted like dark chocolate! Yum!

Both of these flavors go perfect with a nice warm cup of coffee. Wonderful snack for work!

Now tell me

What flavor would you pick to eat first? If you could create any flavor what would it include?

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Today I am liking up with Tina from Fuel Your Future with Tina(<—Follow her blog! Seriously, she is awesome!) for Meatless Monday!

A couple of weeks ago I made Egg Avocado Salad and LOVED IT! So I wanted to share the recipe with you a little bit further in depth (I mean hello it only has 5 ingredients! So easy!).

Servings: 3
Time: 20 minutes

ingredients

Ingredients

  • 2 Full Hard Boiled Eggs
  • 2 Whites Only Hard Boiled Eggs
  • Half a Medium Size Avocado
  • 2 Tablespoons of Plain Greek Yogurt
  • Salt
  • Pepper


    egg salad

    Directions

    1. Use whatever method you like to hard boil 4 eggs. I put the eggs in a pot, covered them with water, put the pot on the stove on high, waited until it boiled and then turned off the stove and let it sit there for 15 minutes. I poured the water out when it was finished and put cold water on top and stuck them in the fridge.
    2. Peel the eggs.
    3. Dice the 2 full eggs and 2 egg whites (discard the yolks).
    4. Dice half of an avocado.

    Wedding Friday: After Ceremony Pictures

    by Danielle @ Itsaharleyyylife on July 25, 2014

    After our ceremony it was time for more pictures. By this time I was pretty much pictured out but I knew that I wanted these memories to look back on one day, so I sucked it up.

    While everyone was eating appetizers during the cocktail hour.

    Eric and I ran off to get pictures. We wanted so many of them that we actually got more pictures taken after dinner (really all night).

    Note: If I would have to change one thing it might be the whole pictures thing. I don’t really know how I would’ve changed it though. I didn’t want to see Eric before the wedding but pictures after the ceremony took a lot of time when I really wanted to just spend time with everyone.

    Here are some of the beautiful pictures we took:

    Never felt so in love than on this day.

    I know we like to kiss.

    I love how the wind just took my veil during this picture haha.

    We took some group pictures:

    We had the best wedding party in the world.

    Rain boots were a must considering it rained everyday before our wedding (even during our rehearsal). Thank goodness things held off for this day.

    Yellow shoes and yellow/grey golf socks were a must. I love this photo.

    In our cocktail area we had a DIY photo booth set up (I got two frames from the rental place) and won the props from The Event Crashers blog. We had a lot of fun with them.

    Full Group Pictures

    This was taken in the cocktail hour area, which was also a beautiful Japanese Garden.

    Family Pictures

    We took more family pictures this time as husband and wife. This one is my favorite though:

    That background is just stunning.

    You can see more of the group photos here.
