Holy cow its 100 degrees here in NYC today, not pleasant to go outside in by any means. It goes without saying I’ll be running and working out inside today and enjoying the air conditioner. I seriously have to move somewhere cooler, I’m just not into this heat! I’m probably going to be running today, not sure of my distance yet, and doing a lower body workout. Then its a nice trip to Bed Bath and Beyond aka my favorite store ever. I have to control myself when I go there because they sell such fun items!

In keeping with the love today, and because this post is sort of random, I wanted to share two new food finds with you. The first is from grocery store heaven: Trader Joe’s. The other day I decided to try something new when I went shopping: Honey Sesame Almonds. OH.MY.GOD these are AMAZING. I haven’t stopped eating them since I got them, they are filling and tasty in so many ways. The sesame seeds give a nice flavor! Try these!
Another item I found recently is NuGo bars, which basically taste like flavored rice crispy treats.. but with healthy ingredients and protein. I had the Chocolate Banana flavor, which was different. I would have preferred a vanilla flavor or nut flavor a bit more but I did enjoy this. What I really like about it are the stats: 190 calories, 2.5 g of fat, 17g of protein. I’m still on a mission to try a whole ton of granola-type bars. I’ll update as I find more
Any other giveaways do you know about?
