Wow, so apparently most of you are Mac fans. I should have guessed I think it’s been my stubbornness that has prevented me from going the Mac route, but I’m feeling daring so I think I’ll be making a purchase this weekend!
This past week I’ve consumed quite a few new eats. And I’m dedicating this What I Ate Wednesday to just that!
The stats are really amazing – 16g of protein in only 160 cals or less! And they offer a ton of flavors. I’ve tried the PB-chocolate and cinn-pecan so far. The verdict? Good (not outstanding). If it wasn’t for the fabulous protein-to-calorie ratio, I would not be that impressed. If they were $1.50 or less and I could buy them locally, I would definitely keep them as snack/small meal on the go, but they aren’t sold in northern CA yet. I will keep my eyes peeled.
Another bar floating around the internet? Gnu fiber bars. Several bloggers highlighted their fabulous deal of $7.95 for a 5-bar sampler pack with free shipping. For that steal, I had to get some. Besides, I couldn’t pass up trying their tasty-sounding flavors:
I’ve tried the blueberry cobbler and blondie and really enjoyed both. They taste very natural, are pretty chewy, and all that fiber has some staying power. I’d highly recommend.
So last weekend, I mentioned Zach and I went on date night (woohoo!). We wanted to go to Palo Alto and were in the mood for some spice, so we tried a new (to us) restaurant, Thaiphoon, where we were able to snag a table outdoors.
Both our meals and the app were good but…
… we left hungry! Seriously, are we that big of piggies? We ordered the vegetarian spring rolls, kung pao chicken, and thai basil tofu. We easily finished our plates with no leftovers – which is a rarity for eating Thai food.
Soooo, we did what any normal couple does and walked across the street to a new(er) wine bar called Gravity, where I promptly had a flight of sparkling wines.
I absolutely want to come back to this place – faboosh!
No date night is complete without froyo:
I’m pretty sure Zach tilted his cup that way so you wouldn’t realize he got the LARGE cup. We both agreed that this was one of the more mediocre froyo experiences. We’ve been here several times before and this time the froyo tasted really icy and the toppings were lacking. Sigh. Oh well.
What’s your favorite Thai food dish?
Have you tried Gnu or Simply bars? Thoughts?
