You know when you eat something that is deliciously amazing and then realize that it was made with incredibly dirt nasty ingredients and you get sick to your stomach?
I lived that moment today when I snacked on a granola bar before working out. I wasn’t all too hungry but I wanted something small with staying power to get me through my workout before lunch.
I reached for the Cascadian Farm organic Chocolate Chip Chewy Granola Bar that Jen grabbed for me this past weekend and went to town.
The first bite and I was in love! It should be renamed to the Incredible Chewy Granola Bar, since that’s exactly what it was. There were so many chocolate chips jammed into the sample sized bar! Pure heaven.
Then I turned the bar over on accident and was disgusted.
Look at all that dried syrup, oil and sugar just screaming for attention.
Now I know why it was stuck in the wrapper and then stuck to my hand.
So I had a little fun in mocking how unhealthy the granola bar is.
Before I saw the bottom of the bar, I had convinced myself upon the first bite that I’d be buying a box of these. Now, I don’t think that’ll be happening. Just because a product is labeled “organic” does not by any means consider it healthy.
It was sooooo good though! Almost as good as that fro-yo. 😉
My afternoon run left me feeling amazing. The 2 miles flew by and the only time I had to stop was to wipe the sweat out of my eyes, off my forehead, cheeks, and mouth. Ladies and gentlemen, I sweat pretty.
I finished my run with 15 minutes on the vertical elliptical before heading back to shower and enjoy my garbage scramble. I haven’t enjoyed one of those lovely scrambles in an earth shattering few days so it enjoyed a nice welcome back fiesta!
My weekend has begun! Since I’ll have a busy weekend, I switched today and tomorrows P90X workouts and just completed Plank X.
Check out that P90X sweat. Ya baby!!
Time to go do laundry, hit the mall to grab some suspenders and glasses for this weekend, and pack my little heart away!
