Happy Hump Day, everybody!
Who doesn't love a short week?
I hope your Memorial Day and weekend were smashing! Ours was pretty solid. McNugget successfully traversed to Shreveport for an overnight excursion to celebrate his Aunt JuJu graduating from PT school (WHOOP WHOOP JUJU!). With that adventure victoriously under our belt, we're taking things to the next level tomorrow: McNutt+airplane+mommy.
Yup. We're off to the motherland of biscuits and Dolly Parton and Rocky Top.
Knoxville, here we come!
With that said, my weekly Wal-Mart visit entailed making sure my baby daddy has all the staples to sustain him, though I know a few visits to Whataburger and Waffle House will occur in my absence.
Nonetheless, here's some goodies I stumbled upon while pursuing the wonderful world of Wal-Mart this week. Enjoy, y'all!
1. Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Quest Bars
WHAT: Cookie-flavored protein bar
WHERE: Nutrition/protein bar section near vitamins
WHY: Gluten-free, soy-free, high protein, low sugar, low carb; great snack on the go or perfect way to satisfy a sweet tooth craving.
2. Great Value Omega-3 Trail Mix
WHAT: Trail mix
WHERE: Nut and popcorn aisle
WHY: Loaded with healthy fats, fiber, protein, and dandy vitamins and minerals, this trail mix it a great snack on the go.
3. Starborough Sauvignon Blanc
WHAT: Crisp, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc
WHERE: Wine aisle
WHY: Fabulous summer wine choice for under $10. Give it a try, and if you don't like it you can send it to me.
4. Organic Cacao Powder
WHAT: Organic cacao (not cocoa) powder
WHERE: Baking aisle with other healthy baking items like coconut flour
WHY: Simliar in taste to cocoa powder, this chocolately powder is lessprocessed, allowing it to retain far more of the nutrients of the cacao bean. It's great in smoothies or my chocolate avocado mousse.
5. Live Root Beer Kombucha
WHAT: Root beer-flavored probiotic drink
WHERE: Refrigerated juice section in the produce aisle
WHY: An organic, raw, low calorie, low sugar, probiotic-loaded alternative to soda...this stuff is GOOD, y'all!
Like always, if you stumble upon any of these goodies or other paleo yummies you think I'd enjoy, snap a pic and tag me on Instagram (michelle.mcnutt) or Facebook (Michelle McNutt or the Healthy Happy Texan page). Have a FABULOUS day and be well!
