WIAW #15: LaraBars & A GIVEAWAY!




Happy 50th WIAW to Jenn from Peas & Crayons! 
This is super exciting! 

This week, I say farewell to Christmas break and hello once again to Xavier University. Although school doesn't start up again until Monday, I'm moving back into the dorm tomorrow to prepare the hall for my residents. So, it is bittersweet. No more lounging around and being lazy for me! 

Also new: I've finally decided just to give up with labeling how I eat. So, I'm just going to eat what I want, whenever I want to. Mostly healthy foods and vegetarian, but I want to eat whatever. As long as I'm not overeating and eating a ton of crap, I'll be happy and still healthy. Labels kill me! I just wanna eat! :) Now let's look at what I ate this week! 

Lemon Soy Yogurt with Uncle Sam's Strawberry Cereal

Inspired Food's Stevia sweetened cake mixes, in chocolate and vanilla. Reviews to come soon.

Green beans with bbq sauce. Weird? I don't think so! 

Homemade biscuits

Homemade chocolate truffles

Unphotographed: salad and soup from Panera, chocolate crinkle cookies, apples, lots of hummus, PF Changs, and veggie stir fry! Yummy! 

Also, in honor of this momentous WIAW birthday, I will be hosting a giveaway! There will be THREE lucky winners! Here are what the three prize packs will contain: 

1. 2 bags of Chocolate Fantasy's dark chocolate hot cocoa mix, 2 Cinnamon Roll LaraBars, 2 Tropical Fruit Tarts LaraBars
2. 2 bags of Chocolate Fantasy's dark chocolate hot cocoa mix, 2 Cinnamon Roll LaraBars, 2 Tropical Fruit Tarts LaraBars
3. 1 Inspired Foods Chocolate Cake Mix, 2 Cinnamon Roll LaraBars, 2 Tropical Fruit Tarts LaraBars

Why? Simply because I have a surplus of LaraBars. And other fruit and nut bars. I got an entire box of the Tropical Fruit Tart flavor on sale for 49 cents each! And they don't expire until May! And I won two entire boxes of the newly retired Cinnamon Roll flavor by singing a song about Cinnamon Roll Larabars! So... I have a LOT that I probably won't eat all of right away. As for the stevia sweetened hot cocoa and cake mixes, I was sent those in the mail by Inspired Foods/Chocolate Fantasy to giveaway! 

How to enter? Simply leave a comment on the post telling me what your favorite thing about WIAW is/how you got involved with WIAW! If you have no clue what the heck I'm talking about, just tell me why you want to win! I will choose the winner next Wednesday on the next WIAW! Good luck everyone!

Much love,

  9. All of your eats look and sound delicious. My boyfriend made homemade biscuits this week, too! I am starting school Monday and definitely not looking forward to it :-( I became aware of WIAW through reading other blogs, when just a month ago I began my own blog, I posted my first WIAW on my second day of blogging! I like WIAW because it gives exposure of healthy diets from around the world and gives me ideas on what I can eat next ;-)

  16. I like that I get to see what other people eat too since it motivates me (well, sometimes!) to be less lazy in my own attempts at cooking! Winning some Larabars would be rad too since I've heard so much about them but have still never had even one...

  25. I just like seeing how other people eat on a regular basis. What one posts as recipes is not usually indicative of everyday eating.

    Also, WIAW is awesome because I get to see what new and creative ideas others have as I get bored with food so easily- I love finding new foods to tingle my tastebuds!
