Just a few tributes to a few things today.
First of all to my Dell laptop for making it really easy to pop my key back in place.
To Frog’s Club One, their awesome play care, a great treadmill, my Mizuno running shoes, Access Hollywood and the 70’s Show for getting me through my 10 miler yesterday. (I only wanted to stop about 5 times. It was a rough one.)
To Costco for their double carts and the big bathroom stall that conveniently fits the cart.
(I’m not sure if they were more excited about the cart thing or the samples they were about to consume. I’m also not sure which was more of a workout yesterday- my treadmill run or the Costco shopping trip.)
To my trusty highlander that has just enough space in the back to stack $300 worth of groceries around my BOB.
Oh, no thanks guys. I got this. You just stay there and let those samples digest.
To great priced ginormous sized products.
Um yeah, nice typo Kristin. Vitaops? Duh.

For some goodies I received in the mail recently.
A little fun package from Nuun Hydration. They didn’t want me for their relay team, but they sent me some fun samples, water bottles, stickers and a cool tattoo.
My highly anticipated Love Grown Foods LOVE drop. This particular drop had a super cute notepad in the box for their bloggers.
(They must have known I needed a new notebook to write my to do lists that never seem to get done.)
To this new unsweetened vanilla flavor Silk Pure Almond milk that only has 35 calories (and was cheap at Target).
To Fitmixer for their amino mix I’ve used a couple times this past week before my workouts (and a shout out to my friend Janetha sent it to me for winning her Adventurous April contest).
And yes, everything is better in that Starbucks travel cup.
To Clif Bar and Company and their MOJO bars. I love them. LOVE them. It’s not easy to find a dairy free bar with a decent amount of protein and these are fabulous. They average about 200 calories and 8 grams of protein.
And to All Star Health for the best prices ever on protein bars and such.
(Disclaimer- I have an associate account with All Star Health. However to this day I have made $0, yes $0 from it. I really do just love that they have the best prices, $5.95 flat rate shipping costs and really fast shipping.)
And well, since I’m going to try to not talk food at all in tomorrow’s post I’ll mention some eats from yesterday in this tribute post.
My random tuna lunch I came up with in about 30 seconds after the exhausting Costco trip.
These two things with a little Trader Joe’s Everyday Seasoning, crushed red pepper and spinach in a Flatout.
These easy spicy enchiladas (minus the spinach) I made for STUFT Daddy for dinner (trying to be a good wife you know).
And of course I had to put this new BBQ sauce to use. I bought it for the price (around $9), the fact that it has 35 calories per serving (most BBQ sauces have 60 or so and are full of sugar) and because the jar is just cool.
(Don’t mind me in my pajamas.)
I used it for my broccoli slaw BBQ bake.
How weird that I burned it. Hmm….
The crispiness didn’t bother me too much alongside my cheese less sandwich and some Costco rotisserie chicken.
Dessert. Um, yeah. Check this out.
In the jar:
a spoonful (or two) of almond butter
a Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Vitatop
30 calorie Dark Chocolate Frosting
this ice cream (yes again)
a sprinkle from Trader Joe’s Sugar, Chocolate and Coffee Bean Grinder
It was heaven in a jar (and enjoyed while watching Bethenny).
This last tribute is to you.
Yes YOU and my beloved PB2.
I can’t believe it took me this long (48 hours or so) to figure this out. Obviously I’m obsessed with this frosting, but yesterday morning I had the idea to sub in some PB2 for my favorite cocoa powder.
This is three ingredients, around 60 calories (depending on the specific milk and sugar free syrup you use) and a pretty substantial serving size.
Low Calorie Peanut Butter Frosting
2 tablespoons PB2 (12 grams)
1 tablespoon sugar free maple syrup
1 tablespoon milk of choice (I used unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze)
Mix ingredients together.
Top anything and everything.
Tell me you love me.
Phew. Long post. Too much food talk.
But, this frosting recipe was too good to not include on here, right?
Happy Thursday friends.
Have any products worth a tribute?
