No, I am not in Vermont.
But, I did receive a foodie pen pal package from Vermont, more specifically, from Christa over at Livin’ a Little Life! Christa is a WW leader and a runner – this is a match made in heaven folks.
I told her I wanted something local, and boy did she deliver! I don’t think it gets any more local than maple syrup! Can’t wait to bust that out on some pancakes.
I’m also super excited about the salad dressing – planning on adding that to my Super
Power Greens soon!
I have already put the dark chocolate bar and the syrup to good use, by making The Fitnessista’s Amazeballs.
I slightly modified the recipe: into a food processor I put 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder, 1 tbs of almond butter, 1 tbs of fig butter, 2 tbs of shredded coconut, 1 tbs of syrup, and 1/2 of the chocolate bar, ran the processor for about 1 minute, then rounded into 4 balls.
Oh my. I planned on saving these for my pre-workout fuel in the morning, but there was no way that was happening. I ate two as soon as they came out of the food processor and two before I went to bed. Sigh.
I won’t make these again unless I have 12 points to spend. Hehehe.
To see the Kansas City care package that I sent, head over to My Indulge.

So happy that parfaits are back in my life.
Lunch was leftovers from the night before. The hash needed a little more flavor, so I added some mustard and rooster love.
Dan and I ended up at a new-to-us restaurant Fresh Grill. They won us over with the picture of the salad and their outdoor seating.
The menu looked awesome and I could not decide on what to order. I finally went with the half salad half sandwich combo.
The food was great. I plan on returning soon – maybe for their breakfast or their yogurt bar.
