Happy Friday!
The long weekend is ahead of us.
What are your plans?
I hope the traffic on cape cod won't be too bad. Ha, who am I kidding?
Anyone coming to the Cape?
They say kind of crappy weather Sat & Sun, but Monday is looking good.
Don't forget the Cape just got their own Whole Foods Market!
I was stuck in traffic on the Sagamore Bridge, and able to snap this photo of the cape cod canal.
Bonk Breakers are really good.
I love the almond butter & honey and the peanut butter-chocolate chip.
A very filling protein bar without all the junk and fillers.
Veggies & cream cheese the lazy way.
Is that true?
Veggie rolls with bread & butter pickles, really tasty. No really!
My favorite smoothie: blackberries, banana, protein powder, milk or almond milk.
My other bad addiction: strawberry shortcake made with pound cake and fresh whipped cream.
Found at Whole Foods. Don't buy it, you'll get hooked.  Their pound cake is INSANELY good.

  1. LOVE Bonk Breaker bars.

    Have a fabulous Memorial Day weekend, Dawn!

  2. I may need to visit Whole Foods to find that strawberry shortcake LOL! Have a great weekend!

  3. hahah- no traffic at the cape on the weekend? Does that ever happen? The Bonk Breakers look delicious. Checking out the digestive habits and PB croutons!

  4. Your smoothie looks so vibrant. I love smoothies but don't typically use blackberries because of the seeds. Are the seeds noticeable in the smoothie? Also what protein powder do you use? I know I need more protein on my diet.

  5. Hope you had a great weekend! I live near the gulf coast of Florida and this ime of year with only two lanes heading to the coast and away from the coast can be a long drive in traffic.


  6. I really think my right palm is itching!


I love your comments!
