A Full Day of Eating #2

I thought it was about time I did another full day of eating post.  You can check out the first one I did by clicking here.

I don’t eat the same things every day, but I do eat a lot of the same foods a lot of days, if that makes sense.  For instance, I have a yogurt, premier protein & PB Fit shake and a quest bar pretty much every day.  But my lunch, dinner and most snacks vary from day to day.

Hiking Yellowstone Backcountry to Union Falls and Scout Pool

I am a leader for an all girls Venturing Crew for the BSA (Boy Scouts of America). Yes it is a group of girl boy scouts.  These girls are absolutely amazing!  Some of the things they do would blow your mind.  They can join the crew when they are 14 years old and as soon as my oldest daughter Jayde turned 14, she wanted to join. In fact, she knew long before she was 14 that she wanted to be a part of this.  I joined as a leader about a year ago and while I can’t make it to every activity, I have had the opportunity to do some amazing things with them!

Every year they do a week long High Adventure and being a leader/parent, I got the privilege to go.  Let me start off by saying, I am not a camper.  I HATE camping.  There are few things I hate as much as camping, but the things we do for our kids.  So it was a week long, Monday-Saturday camping trip…sleeping in a tent, bugs everywhere, stinky outhouses, freezing cold camping.  UGH!

Quest Protein Bar Review

I will admit it, when I first tried Quest Bars I literally could not stand them!  I gagged the second they touched my lips.  I tried to heat them up, put some pb2 on them or just straight choke them down. Everyone constantly raved about them and I just didn’t see what all the fuss was about.   I am a big believer in the fact that if you don’t like something (a specific food, exercise etc..) if you continue to do it, you’ll eventually like it….. or at least not hate it as much. I have always had a hard time hitting my fiber goal so in an attempt to get more fiber into my diet, I looked around to see what I could eat to help with my fiber.  Alas, I found out that Quest Bars have 14-16g of  fiber each and knew I needed to give them another chance.  A friend told me that the s’more ones were great so I decided to start there and give it a shot.

I don’t know about you but I absolutely LOVE this time of year!  I live for fall and everything that goes with it which means #pumpkineverything (yes, I know hashtags don’t work on blogs 🙂 ) But seriously, the cooler weather, the holidays right around the corner, the kids back in school…awwww….it’s a dream!

Today I want to tell you about my favorite pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.  If you read my post about how to make easy french toast you know that my recipes require 5 things, 1-It’s easy, 2- It’s delicious, 3- It’s not weird, 4-It’s normal food that I can buy from the store and 5- It’s convenient.  These cookies definitely fit all of these requirements.

These are hands down the easiest and most delicious pumpkin chocolate chip cookies you will ever try!  I love making these in the fall and stock up on the ingredients so I never run out. AND they are only 78 calories per cookie!  You seriously cannot beat that!

Healthy Eating Tips

Eating healthy doesn’t have to be hard.  It does take preparation but once you get that down, it super easy.  For the most part, I eat basically the same things every day and that makes my life easy!  I know what I need and what I like and it simplifies it.  I am such a convenience person, so if it’s not easy, I won’t do it.  So trust me, if I can make this work for me, so can you!  And to help you even more, I’ve put together a list of some healthy eating tips that you can start incorporating into your daily life to make it a little easier.
