Nutty, Clustery Giveaway!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I have a new giveaway for you all, but first let me catch up on some food quickly. Here's some of what I've been eating lately. Breakfast today was a lovely bowl of oat bran:

-oat bran
-ground flax
-Naturally More PB
-Almond Butter
-Cottage Cheese

With coffee:

I always seem to have plenty of breakfast pictures for you all and today is no exception. Here is yesterday's breakfast:

A mushroom and spinach omelet with salsa and a piece of ww toast with almond butter.

**I woke up craving mushrooms, so that's what I made. Who craves mushrooms other than me? Seriously! What's the strangest thing you crave regularly or have craved recently? Other than those mushrooms, my regular craves are broccoli, red peppers, chocolate, peanut butter, and oat bran.**

Yesterday I went back to my doctor because my finger infection is NOT going away!! I have started a third course of antibiotics (but a different kind this time--a nastier antibiotic!) and that's one of the reasons I've been eating a lot of yogurt. I've also been taking a probiotic supplement because three courses of antibiotics are really rough on your body! I m really hoping that this new antibiotic clears it up!

Back to breakfast from Monday morning, which was a bowl of cereal:

This was a base of frozen strawberries, with two kind of cereal, plain yogurt and peanut butter.

Later that day I snacked on a yogurt with more cereal and an apple with peanut butter.

And going back all the way to Sunday was another great bowl of oat bran:

-cottage cheese
-almond butter :)

And for lunch I made a "real" meal of an Indian spiced sausage from Whole Foods (I have one more of these that will probably get eaten later today!) as well as sauteed veggies and spaghetti squash topped with hummus. And some red wine! Woo!

On Sunday morning I played with my church and in the afternoon I played an awesome show with a local rock band which was so much fun!

At some point for dinner I had some sauteed veggies with almond butter on them. Don't knock it 'til you try it! This is so good!

And another apple, yes with MORE almond butter.

  1. Thanks for the link sweetie! Those nature valley nutty clusters look great! I think I had something similar this summer on a boating trip but they were a different brand and they were fab! I bet my hubby and little one would love those. Plus its always fun to win stuff, always!! haha


  2. I don't know if I can enter as I'm in the UK, but I wanted to comment anyway. Amazing meals, especially the omelette. I often wake up craving eggs, I once went through a phase of craving cucmber in every sandwich and salad and now I hardly ever eat it.


  3. I'd like to try it because I am a huge fan of nuts and clusters so these look great!

  4. Those nutty clusters look yummy! Good on oatmeal perhaps?

    I follow your blog!


  5. i love trying new products! count me in~

  6. i want to try it because i used to eat this peanut/nutty candy in taiwan al the time and i miss it!

  7. I would like to try these products for the simple fact that the name Nut Clusters sounds dirty and makes me want to say "that's what she said". Is that inappropriate or is it a good enough reason? Haha

  8. Would love to try there. Nuts are great snack.

  10. Ooh! Thank you for the giveaway! I would love to win, because I LOVE all things almond: almond butter, almond paste, almond granola, plain almonds, roasted almonds, spiced almonds, almond cookies, almond milk ... the list goes on.
