Goodies June Box

Breakfast

I had overnight oats for the first time in a long time this morning!

001

They might not look the best, but they taste delicious!

Last night, I mixed up:

  • 1/4 cup Quaker oats
  • Strawberry Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup almond milk

I let it sit in the fridge overnight, and this morning I topped it with blueberries.

Today’s Workout

  • BodyPump – 60 minutes

I haven’t been following my half marathon training program lately. I haven’t been able to run in the mornings because it’s been really rainy and storming a lot here lately. I’ve also been sore, and just not in the mood to run.

I think I will go for a long run this weekend, and then pick up the training program next week. Hopefully the weather will cooperate.

Goodies Box

The other day, I got my June Goodies Box in the mail.

The Goodies Box is a monthly box that I subscribe too. It’s shipped out towards the middle of each month and costs $7 a month. I haven’t mentioned it in awhile so I though it’d be fun to show you what I got this month.

1. Lay’s Stax in Que Rico Adobadas. I love love love the Orginal Lays Stax chips. I usually don’t buy them because I will eat the whole can, but I wasn’t a fan on the Que Rico flavor. I didn’t like them at all, but the rest of my family did.

2. Smoosh squeeze pack in strawberry, blueberry, and banana. Fortified with superfoods chia and acerola. I haven’t tried it yet, but these squeeze packs always remind of my niece’s baby food. Still, it sounds good.

3. Roasted Seaweed Snacks – Hmmmm… I’m not quite sure what to think about these. I haven’t tried them yet, but I’m not opposed to eating them although eating seaweed doesn’t sound too appealing. I’ve never had kale chips either, but I wonder if they’re similar?

4. Dream Water – I have had Dream Water a couple of times and really like it. I don’t know if it actually works or if it’s just power of suggestion, but I felt like I actually slept good after drinking it.

5. Pringles Stix cheese flavored. I do not like cheese flavored products. I don’t like Cheese-Its, Cheese Nips, or Goldfish, so I didn’t try these. I do think they’d be a great snack for kids. Jaden tried them and spit them out everywhere.

Apparently, he’s not a fan. Jacob refused to try them. The only one that liked them was my niece. She gets the whole bag.

6. Highland All Butter Shortbread – Butter and Shortbread? What’s not to love?

So, there you go, that’s June’s Goodies Box!

  • What snack would you most like to try from the Goodies Box?
  • Have you ever had seaweed? Thoughts?
  • Ever get into a running “funk” when you just didn’t feel like running?

  1. I would want to do the Dream water!

    I had seaweed once in a bag from Trader Joes… did not like it. I do like Kale Chips though.

    Running funk, every morning when I see the time still says 4:XX and it is time to run. What makes me run on a rough day? I want to be able to eat a good amount without guilt lol And if I don’t run, everyone that I walk into asks how my run was then I have to be like i didn’t run because ummm

  2. I actually really like seaweed. It’s definitely a strange food but pretty good!

  3. You might be surprised by the seaweed snacks. I wasn’t sure about them the first time I bought them, but now I’m addicted and have to buy the bulk packets at Mitsuwa!

  4. I think different kinds of healthy granola bars would be good. I always like trying new kinds, but hate when you buy a full box of ones I’m not a huge fan of. I have used seaweed in sushi, but nothing other than that. I have heard it’s good even in salads.

  5. I think you’ll like the seaweed snack. At first, I really wasn’t sure what to take of the flavor & texture, but after trying them a couple times, I’ve developed quite a love for them :) They are great crumbled in salads.

    looks like you got some cool items to try out
