Hunting for Health

Discovering how to improve my health day by day and hoping people can learn from my experiences

COSTCO and Chocolate February 28, 2010

So we finally went to Costco to buy the usual, broccoli, Pellegrino, spinach, some kind of protein for dinner tonight and stirfries throughout the week, and Larabars.  I forgot how crazy it gets on Saturday, but there were ohh so many samples to keep me distracted from the crowd 🙂  I was also thinking about buying another Jillian Michaels DVD because I love her No More Trouble Zones workout, but there were none to be found, sadly. 

I also went to the Pilates of death class today, formally known as Pilates core fusion.  I have a love/hate relationship with this class because it is hard and I am always in pain and barely make it through the whole hour.  I had not been for two weeks, so it really kicked my booty!  I was talking to the instructor for tips to get stronger before her next class since my missing it for two weeks really made me weaker, and she said come more often!  haha I really like her and will make sure to go to her Tuesday and Saturday class this week!

Yesterday I made Averie’s (of Love Veggies and Yoga) Raw Vegan Coconut Oil Chocolate and loved it!  I changed her recipe just a little:

1 T Coconut oil (melted with the Agave)

1 T Agave Nectar (Instead of her 1.5T)

1/2 t vanilla extract

2 T Cocoa powder

I added in a drop of mint extract with one batch and it was good as well! Peanut butter would also be good in this recipe.

Tonight we are grilling pork tenderloin for dinner.  I did a marinade of miso dressing with Sriracha, should be good!  We are also broiling some brussle sprouts with some cayenne, onion powder, salt and pepper and making a spinach salad with miso dressing and some mushrooms.  We will see how everything turns out!

Have a great Saturday night!

xoxo Erin

  1. Brussels, Costco, and chocolate…sounds like a typical Saturday for me. 😉 Dinner looks like it turned out great. The miso marinade sounded yummy!

  2. Oh I am so glad you made it and thanks for telling me you did! I can see where a little mint extract would be heavenly…kinda like an Andes Coconut Mint 🙂 remember those things, andes mints? maybe I am dating myself LOL

      I do remember Andes mints, they were my sister’s fav candy when we were little; it did end up tasting very much like them! It was pretty good, I highly suggest adding in the mint! All of your desserts sound so good I do not know which one to try next
