DSC_0332The nice people at Country Choice Organic sent me some coupons to try a few of their products.  I picked up my three choices at Whole Foods today:

  • Soft Baked Double Fudge Brownie cookies
  • Old Fashioned Oats
  • Vanilla Wafers

Country Choice Organic is such a great company (feel free to send me stuff anytime) 😉 .  I love buying products that are made mainly with organic ingredients.  It’s better for the planet and your body. 

I got this from the Country Choice website and it gives you something to think about when it comes to what you are doing for yourself and your environment:

TOP 10 ENVIRONMENTAL REASONS TO BUY ORGANIC FOOD

1.Organic agriculture does not use persistent chemicals that pollute groundwater, a primary source of our drinking water.

2.Songbirds and other wildlife are not harmed by organic farming methods.

3.Organic farmers keep the topsoil on the fields, not eroding into our waterways.

4.Unique varieties of crops and livestock are more likely to be raised organically, helping to maintain a diverse gene pool for our food products.

5.Watersheds being farmed by organic farmers stay much cleaner and fish stocks healthier and more plentiful.

6.Organic farming produces a very healthy topsoil, rich with biological matter.

7.Rainwater is cleaner since persistent chemicals do not get absorbed into the atmosphere.

8.Organic farming builds and nurtures the earth so we can grow our food on the same fields indefinitely.

9.A wide variety of wild animal and plant species thrive on organic farms, supporting continued biodiversity on our planet.

10.Recent studies show that organic farming methods are evolving to the point that they produce equivalent yields to conventional farming.

I tried the vanilla wafers today.  I bought some yogurt from Whole Foods as well and used it as a dip!

Friday funday

I got my hair colored all over today, not just halo highlights like the usual.  It is darker for the fall and I love it.  I went to Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s and got some good deals.  They have this coupon flyer called “The Whole Deal” and it has lots of good coupons in it.  I have fun new things to try! I really stuck to the coupons, because Whole Foods can get pricey if you don’t watch it. 

We went to Kanki Japanese Steakhouse where they had a steak special for $9.99 and its usually at least $16.  It was delicious.  We then walked around the mall a bit and went to Barnes and Noble. I didn’t have my eye on anything, but the husband got the new Dan Brown book.  We both got something from Starbucks.  I got a skinny pumpkin spice latte meaning fat free milk and no whipped topping.  I didn’t even miss it.  Why not cut calories where you can?  I need to do this more!!

Zoey decided to sit by the tub while I put up laundry.  She is just too cute!

I made some peanut butter cookies.  I substituted white wheat flour for regular while, light butter for regular, organic brown sugar for dark brown sugar…

They are delicious!  Here is the original recipe that I modified: http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder.dyn?action=displayRecipe&recipe_id=1924647

I got impatient for dinner so I didn’t let them cool enough and a few cracked. Oh well, still delicious!

Before: I just woke up, sorry the pic is a little blurry!DSC_0117DSC_0135

This is after.  I was hot and put my hair up.  It is definately darker, but I really like it!  I am off to watch tv/fall asleep while doing so. 

Tomorrow is supposed to rain during the football game.  I really do not want to do anything tomorrow, but sleep.  Oh well, I’ll make it.

Excited to try new food items! Have a good night!
