WIAW, Product Review, and Recipe!

It’s that time of the week again!  Well actually its really the only time that I ever really blog, need to work on that.  Anyways my WIAW is as follows…..


Pumpkin Granola (Recipe at end of post)


Chicken salad made with greek yogurt along with  lettuce, carrots, and cherry tomatoes thrown into the mix.  


Another veggie burger with baked green beans and ketchup for dipping.

Product Review

The wonderful people at ZonePerfect sent me their new Sweet and Salty Cashew Pretzel bar to try.   I was super excited to give it a  taste, because I have seen so many people always purchase there bars and talk about how much they love them.  My overall review of their new Sweet and Salty Cashew Pretzel is that it is delicious!  It has that salty taste from the cashews but with a hint of sweetness.  Along with its great taste, it also provides 10 grams of protein!

I would definitely consider buying it at the store if I saw it on the shelves!  Thanks ZonePerfect!

Pumpkin Granola Recipe!


1 cup Rolled Oats

3 T Pumpkin Butter (I used the one from Trader Joe’s) 

Preheat oven to 325.

Spray a pan with cooking spray.

Combine rolled oats and pumpkin butter in a bowl and mix well.

Place mixture on pan and bake for 15-20 mins, turning over after 10 min (or as needed).

Eat and enjoy!!!
