Tuesday recap: new brownie love

July 20th, 2010 · 17 Comments · breakfast, random favorites

11.5 hours at work today. I’m keeping it short and SWEET. Yes sweet, because I have a new sweet love – a chocolate chip brownie Larabar. Have you seen these guys with little cute dots on the package? I wasn’t in the market for a new bar but couldn’t resist these when I saw them at Whole Foods yesterday. So glad I did because these things are the bomb. Seriously. If you’ve tried Larabar’s jocolat line and wasn’t impressed, try this one. It did not taste like dates or bitter chocolate but really did taste like a sweet moist brownie with real chocolate chips in it. So sinful yet good for you?! That was definitely the highlight of my day. How was yours?

Except for a brownie there were other eats too, of course! :)

I got this in Montreal :)


… but I’m not a fan. It tastes like hemp seeds which I find bitter :(

Can you guess what I got as a gift in the mail yesterday? That’s some exciting stuff.

PS – I made it to bootcamp today and rocked it again. I’m back to my old self at the gym. I love intense workouts. :mrgreen:

All right, I was actually going to go back to the office but I am beat so hopefully I can make up for it tomorrow. 2 more days of madness!!! The last night may be an all nighter, though. eek 😳

    Oh, I haven’t seen that flavor before! How exciting. I love Lara Bars but I must admit, I prefer bars containing chocolate and/or peanut butter…sometimes both ;).

    Those look like Barney Butter packets!

    OMG I’m so jealous!! I’ve been keeping my eye out for the new flavors for weeks!!!!! Must try more WF’s locations :)

    Awesome that you feel back to your old self!

    I am totally on the hunt for those new Larabars. The only new flavor I’ve been able to get my hands on is the Carrot Cake, which I LOVE! I think I’m “back on” Larabars after a long break. These new flavors sound promising!

    Dinner looks good! Is that fish? What kind? I am trying to eat more fish lately…

    Laura – it’s a sesame bagel with Weight Watchers cheese wedge, lox, tomato and greens – it was yummy :)

  • #15 - Rachael

    I can’t say I miss the 10, 11, 12 hour days of my old job – you’re a better person than I for getting through them!
    Any suggestions for Montreal? We’re headed up there on tour next week, and it’s been ten years since I visited to check out McGill….I think things might have changed a little :)
