flashback friday: oh, wendover.

by Janetha on March 12, 2010

in meals,moves

hi love pies! it is friday!! yahoo, finally. SO.. let’s see.. this post is going to be ultra random and speedy because:

  1. none of my food was photogenic today so i don’t want to elaborate on it much
  2. there is some flash-backing to be done after the daily business
  3. i am leaving for wendover in an hour, more on that in a minute

so, let’s hop to it!

today i was wondering about my macro intake ratios (that is carbs/protein/fat grams to those of you who don’t know) so you will see the stats under every meal i’ve eaten today.

breakfast!

this was pretty boring but delicious none the less~

IMG_7597

1 egg+3 egg whites & 1 la tortilla factory high fiber tortilla & heinz reduced sugar ketchup.

IMG_7598

208 calories, 21g carbs, 26g protein, 7.5g fat

lunch!

another not-so-pretty meal, but again, delicious.

IMG_7600

355 calories, 30g carbs, 44.5g protein, 8g fat

part one was 1/2 cup cottage cheese+sprinkle of ranch seasoning+3 chicken tenders (diced)

IMG_7606

and part two aka lunch dessert was 1 cranbran vitatop + smear of mighty maple peanut butter.

IMG_7605

YUM.

HIIT!

today was a quickie!

whole foods run!

IMG_7607

let’s talk about this stuff! some new finds, some old friends, some usual suspects…

  • shredded spoonfuls! my favorite cereal that i have not eaten since december.. yep. i quit the cereal for awhile and now that i am eating it again~ shredded spoonfuls was bound to find it’s way into my shopping cart eventually ;)
  • toasted nuts & cranberry luna bars. no idea why the two bars are in totally different packaging? but they were on sale for a buck. holler.
  • citrus kombucha. favorite flavor!
  • voskos greek yog. on sale 3 for $5!
  • oikos greek yog. fave brand.
  • wallaby plain yog. new-to-me yogurt.
  • stonyfield farms plain yog. another new-to-me yogurt. i usually buy greek yogurts but i am trying to branch out because regular yogurt is cheeeeeap.
  • LUNA PROTEIN BARS! at long last~ the search is over.

IMG_7608

  • tera’s whey protein powder. in vanilla & blueberry. can’t wait to try them~ my girl raved about this brand!

IMG_7609

  • nayonaise. i have been looking for a mayo alternative but everything i have come across has had horrible stats.

IMG_7612

check out the stats:

IMG_7613

awesome. fat free, 10 calories a serving.

i will let you know how all the new products are once i try them!

snack!

IMG_7614

3/4 cup oikos, 1/2 scoop BSN cinnamon roll protein powder, 3/4 cup shredded spoonfuls, 1 TB naturally more

IMG_7617

367 cals, 38g carbs, 35g protein, 8.5g fat

macros today so far! (mind you: i still have dinner, dessert, and drinking on the agenda)

  • 931 calories
  • 89g carbs
  • 106g protein
  • 24g fat
  • carb/protein/fat ratio of 35% / 41% / 24%

observations? since i am aiming for a 40/40/20 ratio, i should cut back on the nut butter (to one time a day instead of multiple times a day) and i think that things will balance out perfectly.

i am checking up on my ratios today because i haven’t in quite some time and i think the carbs and fat ratios have been higher than they used to be, and i just need to keep things in check.

weekend plans!

  • wendover with the ladies tonight
  • costco/sunflower market/whole foods/regular grocery store tomorrow
  • lower body workout either saturday or sunday (and the other day will be a rest day)
  • alice in wonderland saturday night
  • snowboarding sunday morning
  • looking at a house sunday afternoon
  • meal planning & prepping sunday night
  • hopefully blogging somewhere in there!

how was that for speed blogging??

smoothie staches!

yes, i still love to see your smoothie staches!

here we have monica from run, eat, repeat and i totally pirated the photo off her blog ;)

and the youngest smoothie stache recruit~ my bestie katie’s little boy, noah!! isn’t he SO cute?! he just turned 2 the other day :)

flashback friday!!

like i said, the ladies and i are going to wendover tonight.  those of you from utah know exactly what that is.  but most of you probably don’t~ consider yourselves lucky ;)

wendover is the most ghetto version of vegas.. but it is super, duper close to the SLC (just over the border into nevada) and although it is a complete sh!thole (pardon my french, it is the only way to describe it), it is a lot of fun to go there with a bunch of girl friends, rent a suite, hang out and pretend like we know how to gamble.  gambling is illegal in utah~ so there is some sort of novelty to going to a casino for a night.

the last time we all went to wendover was february 2008, the last time my norwegian friend, tonje, was in town.  no words to explain this flashback.. 100% photos. enjoy!

What a fun flashback!!

I just bought goat milk yogurt, and it is quite interesting! Almost a “cheesy” type flavour… can’t decide if I love it or hate it!

No big plans this weekend… the boyf and I may go to a St. Patty’s day parade, but all the excitement that is going on in my life occurred this week!

Fun pictures!

Tomorrow I am helping my husband with a video shoot for a toddler music. There will be 23 toddlers there. TWENTY THREEEEEE!!!!!! Sunday Deb and I are going to meet at the beach to do a kettlebell workout and have….you guessed it….SMOOTHIES!!!!!! I’m super excited!

Have a great weekend friend!

ksgoodeats March 12, 2010 at 7:03 pm

I’ve heard such good things about that Terra Whey protein powder – you’ve got to fill a bloggie in when you try it! I hope you like the Luna Proteins. My favorite it cookie dough! Good luck looking at the house! I think that looking at houses sounds like so fun. Maybe I’m weird but I LOVE seeing other houses!

Hahah “Wendover” – the 12 year old boy inside of me laughed at the name! Looks like a fun time!

mom March 12, 2010 at 7:05 pm

Have fun and be careful!! Love the photos of your last hurrah in Wendover :)
xoxo

bre March 12, 2010 at 7:24 pm

Hey JAB!!! Sweet goods. Yogurts galore. Mmmm

I don’t have any whole foods that close to me saldy! I think the last new thing I tried were vita tops believe it or not! And I adore them!!!

Tonight I have plans to watch some arrested development and lots of sleep ;) then tomorrow I am going to get my nails done, pick up my new glasses! And c.l.e.a.n. Sunday is about going to be all about relaxing.

Yours sounds action packed!! Never been gambling I think I would like it too much ;)

kbwood March 12, 2010 at 8:11 pm

the ugliest food usually tastes the best!
YOU WILL LOVE THE COOKIE DOUGH LUNA! i LOVED it!!!
have an AWESOME WEEKEND SUGA!

caronae March 12, 2010 at 8:29 pm

Wendover sounds fun! have an awesome time. I need to cut back to one nut butter serving a day too. Thanks for sharing your ratios! My latest new product is chobani champions. It’s tasty but too thin.

Have an awesome weekend!

Jessica @ How Sweet It Is March 12, 2010 at 8:44 pm

New to me – some white bean hummus from TJ’s. Until now I have hated hummus, but this made me love it!

Allie (Live Laugh Eat) March 12, 2010 at 9:03 pm

I was just thinking I need to give Kombucha another shot. Perhaps I should get citrus? Hooray for Luna Protein Bars! I like cookie dough the best. I secretly love the protein-y texture that some dislike.

julie March 12, 2010 at 9:17 pm

dude nayonaise is SO good! it’s perf for everything you would use mayo for :) enjoy it lovely lady! mmm can you take me food shopping with you and to that market that you’re going to also?

i’m hittin up costco tomorrow with deej :) maybe i’ll see you there?

Jamie (BeautyandtheBeef) March 12, 2010 at 9:39 pm

The latest new to me product was a Zing bar, it was OK, I think a different flavor than the one I bought would have been better.

I want to catch Alice in Wonderland this weekend too…I always put off seeing movies and then don’t wind up seeing them! I don’t want this to happen because I really want to see this in 3D!

naturalnonsense March 12, 2010 at 9:59 pm

Mmm Shredded Spoonfuls are my new obsession! A bowl somehow makes its way into my tummy pretty much every night now. Haha – I love all your different brands of yogurt! That’s exactly what I do. I have my favorites of plain and flavored all made by different brands. A new to me product that is rockin my world is a bag of frozen cherries I bought last week. May seem simple but I’ve never just eaten plain cherries. SO much better than the artificial cherry flavor in candy and junk. Have an awesome weekend!

Stef @ moretolifethanlettuce March 12, 2010 at 10:02 pm

aww noah! i’m a huge fan of luna proteins, esp the cookie dough flava. my latest new purchase was green rice. i think it has bamboo extract in it. got it from the bulk bins at WF, curious to see what it taste like!

Andrea@WellnessNotes March 12, 2010 at 10:25 pm

Have fun! The flashback pics are awesome! Looks like lots of fun!

I recently picked up some protein powders that I haven’t tried yet. Not quite sure what I’m waiting for…

Oh, BTW, I’m totally addicted to your cottage cheese/gabanzo been mix! Eat it almost every day now!

Have a great weekend!

Ashley March 12, 2010 at 10:27 pm

New to me product?

Tile :)

SO and I will be retiling our bathroom floor. This should be good!

Loved the flashback photos today! I bet your a blasty to hang with!

jqlee March 12, 2010 at 10:54 pm

if you can find it, try the wallaby in maple flavor. it’s sooo good!

i’ve been meaning to try that nayonaise too. let us know how it is!

Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) March 12, 2010 at 11:14 pm

hottie alert…always with you and your friends….where the hell was i and why wasnt i invited??!! xoxo

i have those lunas! i found them on sale at my WF’s for a buck each after months of never finding them, they are on a huge mark down and i snagged the cookie dough which i am loving! i was so-so on the PB and the cherry not my thing so didnt buy it.

LMK what you think of the cookie dough!

Lindsay March 13, 2010 at 5:08 am

I think I’m the only one that doesn’t really like the new Luna bars. They are too sweet for me. But its probably a good thing I don’t have another bar addiction, haha. Eats look good to me, I LOVE ranch and cottage cheese. Great combo!

Jenna March 13, 2010 at 7:26 am

Have a great weekend!! What’s wendover? Ha

sheeatssheruns March 13, 2010 at 7:32 am

La Tortilla Factory Tortillas + Vitatops = LOOOOVE! Well…not together…but, maybe…

Amy

inmytummy March 13, 2010 at 9:56 am

I really like that Luna Protein bar in Cookie Dough flavor. The last new thing that I bought was a box of Luna Minis. I don’t know if that counts as new but I hadn’t had these flavors in a mini-version before!

Michelle March 13, 2010 at 10:18 am

Super fun pics!!!

I love the cookie dough Lunas too! So good! I haven’t tried the other two flavors yet but I am sure they are delish. Looking forward to seeing your review :-)

Have a great weekend!

Sweet Cheeks March 13, 2010 at 10:32 am

MAYO! I used to be a mayo freak. I can’t wait to hear if that stuff is any good!

P.S. read my new post…I posted about needing some vacation help and was wondering about where you stayed when you were on your vacation and if you would recommend the place you stayed at? I would appreciate it!! Thanks! :)

Jessica (jesslikesithot) March 13, 2010 at 12:17 pm

Whoahhh that faux mayo sounds legittt–i mean, if you’re in the mayo mood you might as well PILE that sh!t on with this stuff, hahahah!!!

And oooh the protein luna bars–everyone’s been obsessed lately! Need to find those. And some Kombucha to make the tum satisfied, haven’t had one in a while!! Seriously, if they were like a buck….i’d have one erreeeday!

I also need to bring shredded spoonfuls back into my life. I gotta go through my barb’s shredded OATS (like quaker oatmeal squares) first though, since I have a box of that, granola and 365 honey crunches of oats back at school already!! hahaha i’m a cereal faaareaaak.

LOVE YOU AND THE SELF-TIMER CAMERA POSING SESH!!! Those are the BEST. So hilarious! Off to relaxxx then hit up tj’s for groceries!

lowandbhold March 13, 2010 at 1:01 pm

Haha, that place sounds fun. I love Vegas.

1. I just tried Kefir for the first time and it’s delish.
2. Dinner with my Dad last night. Ran an 8K this morning. Lunch with the madre tomorrow. The rest of the weekend will probably be low key. Perfect.

I heart you! Have a wonderful weekend dear.

lindsayruns March 13, 2010 at 3:14 pm

new to me? I bought sunglasses a few minutes ago, that counts right? ;) I have a huge list for when I am in a civilization that has healthy stores…but until then I stick to the usual.
10K this morning, chilling tonight, don’t know tomorrow. Enjoy your gambling!

Gabriela (froyolover) March 13, 2010 at 5:15 pm

Gotta love Whole Foods! Haha ;)
Lovely pics, girl!
Enjoy your weekend :)

BroccoliHut March 13, 2010 at 5:51 pm

Love that Nayonaise–I use it for all my tofu salads:)

simplyshaka March 13, 2010 at 6:04 pm

Ghetto version of Vegas LOL–love it. I’ve never even heard of Wendover!

I finally bought some Kombucha today and am looking forward to trying it! I’ve never heard of Nayonaise-looks interesting and 10 calories?? Count me in!

glidingcalm March 13, 2010 at 10:16 pm

love the wf haul!!

i love your CC and chicken and ranch idea! that sounds tasty!!

paijery March 13, 2010 at 11:15 pm

sooo jealous of your whole foods run!
new to me product was vita coco coconut water and pineapple. didn’t like it at all though :(
hope you are having a great weekend!

Ildie March 14, 2010 at 6:14 am

HAHAHA, those pictures are hilarious!

Last new to me product purchase was Better N’ Peanut Butter. I’s been a week and I’m officially addicted. 50 calories and 1g fat per tablespoon. SOLD!

I have a baby shower to go to later today. Busy busy!

Tamizn March 14, 2010 at 9:32 am

Great new products I love dairy free mayo! I’m loving the buckwheat groats I bought they have transformed my protein bars! x

Kelly March 14, 2010 at 12:02 pm

Oh can’t wait to see what you think of that “mayonnaise”

Michele | aka Raw Juice Girl March 14, 2010 at 12:43 pm

LOVE Kombucha! I think Strawberry Serenity is my favorite so far. :-D

Favorite new-to-me product I’ve tried recently? Hmmm…. I think I’d have to say Nuttzo! YUM-O!

No weekend plans for me. I’m just staying inside (it’s rainy and cold out there! LOL) and getting caught up on some blog (and other) work.

Have a fantabulous weekend!!

Kristie March 14, 2010 at 2:26 pm

Wendover sounds pretty dang fantastic to me, night of girlishness and gambling, can’t go wrong with that.

So excited you bought nayonnaise, lets hear how it is! I’ve thought about it before… but never quite got to the stage of actual consideration of purchase.. but with those stats?! if you say it’s good then it’s on my grocery list.

I want Luna proteeeeins. Stupid Canada!
My last new to me product would have to be…. Coconut butter! At first I was like what the heck is the deal with this stuff but now I kinda dig it!

My weekend has involved work, sushi, brief/awkward/boring bar trip, dollar store browsing (loveee em), and unproductivity. It’s been good :)

Hope the weekend has been fab missy!

Naomi (onefitfoodie) March 14, 2010 at 3:50 pm

umm I JUST spoke about shredded spoonfuls on my blog bc it is mym new favorite!! it tastes exactly like LIFE and it is amazing, life changing at that :) i love all the combinations of your food because you always make them savory n swee which is perfect and what more could a girl ask for!!!

citrus kombucha is high up there on my flavor list, I also love trilogy and gingerberry! currently I have a cosmic cranberry which is great but its no gingerberrry!!

I tried the SO DELICIOUS mini ice cream sandwiches and they got my stamp of approval they were really so delicious!!

Lara (Thinspired) March 14, 2010 at 9:23 pm

Love seeing your Whole Foods purchases…definitely please let us know how the new products are, especially the protein powder and the nayonaise! I’ve seen that protein powder before and just love the packaging!

1. Morningstar Garden Veggie burger patties…love ’em!
2. Went home for the weekend…it was fabulous :)

Danielle March 14, 2010 at 9:32 pm

What fun flashbacks! Have a great trip :)

Erica March 15, 2010 at 4:40 am

Hi girl! I’ve been meaning to email you! We had a fabulous time in Jamaica. Coming back was too hard :) I don’t think your foods look boring at all. Especially that breakfast. I’m totally having eggs tonight for brinner after seeing that. I just picked up a luna protein bar at WFs yesterday too- I’m excited to try it. Hope you had a fun weekend! For the weekend, we did our taxes….which was very unpleasant and relaxed!

Paige @ Running Around Normal March 15, 2010 at 7:18 am

Nice WF haulage! Love the new goods :D
Super cute pictures. Me and my girls do the self-timer and strike a pose pics all the time LOL so cheesey :D
Hope you had a fab weekend!

Taysa (Water, Butter and Wine) March 15, 2010 at 9:38 am

Oh man, I wish I had read this before I went to Whole Foods yesterday. I was just looking at Tera’s Whey and wondering if it was good. Bourbon Vanilla was the flavor of my favorite chai at my favorite chai cafe in Seattle — can’t wait for your review!

Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) March 15, 2010 at 2:21 pm

I’ve never heard of Wendover before! I hope you had a great time! I love Vegas, it’s always a fun time so if Wendover is anything like that I’m sure you’ll have fun.

I love Wallaby yogurt. They have an awesome pineapple flavor.

Megan (The Runner's Kitchen) March 15, 2010 at 2:55 pm

Love flashback Fridays :-) I’m so jealous that you found Voskos greek yogurt. I have coupons for FREE containers, but my Whole Foods stopped carrying it. Boo.

eatolive March 15, 2010 at 5:36 pm

yum. are those protein lunas good??? i havent been able to find any here but really want to try them :)

love your flashback fridays lovepie!

Deb (SmoothieGirlEatsToo) March 19, 2010 at 7:14 pm

I can’t tell who’s who in that picture of you and the viking?? You look like on of those siamese twins with the same body and different heads!! Hah! Fun girls weekend though. Perhaps a drop of alcohol was consumed? ;-)

I keep forgetting to tell you my fave energy bar (sorry it was back a few posts) is Peppermint chocolate Luna (or something like that) sheer bliss.

Weekend plans- guess I’m only a week behind now! :-) As you know I did Kettlebells with my new friend Jenn and yes you can totes take credit for the love affair- THANK YOU!
