Road Trip Goodies

Happy weekend everybody! I hope it’s been a good one so far.

I’ve had a great Saturday with good friends. Remember how I said I was going to share with you what I made for Kyle and the boys on his road trip? Well here it is:


Healthified Chocolate Chip Cookies

3/4 Cup Sugar or 2 tbs or agave syrup

3/4 Cup packed brown sugar

1/2 Cup butter, softened

1/2 Cup canola oil

1 Tsp vanilla

1 Egg

2 Cups whole wheat flour

1 Tsp baking soda

1/4 Tsp salt

3/4 Cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

1. Heat oven 375 degrees. In large bowl , beat sugars, butter, oil, vanilla, and egg with electric mixer on low. Beat in flour, baking soda and salt until well blended , stir in chocolate.


2. On greased cookie sheet , drop dough by rounded tablespoon about 2 inches apart.


3. Bake 7 to 9 min or until very light golden brown.


I saved a few for me and sent the rest with Kyle. He said they were a big hit!

This morning I decided to just have a smoothie because I had plans to go out to eat for lunch and dinner with friends.

I had a strawberry electrolyte smoothie!


Frozen strawberries + Coconut water + Coconut vanilla milk + almond butter + Kale



Lunch was spent with my friend Lacey!


We went to Somethings Brewing in Conway. This brought back so many memories from college. The meal was so good but ended having just a little too much sugar. They brought out my meal but never brought out Lacey’s meal. We waited and waited and she finally decided to remind them. They apologized and said it was coming out. They ended up giving her meal to her for free and brought out a huge piece of orange yummy goodness cake ( I made this name up. I don’t know what it was called )! Oh my, this was so good! I had just a few bites but it was so rich.


I had a chicken salad sandwich on whole wheat bread with a side of chili. The chili ended up be huge!


I also ordered a strawberry mocha! It was soooo good but soooo sweet.


Tonight I had dinner with another friend. We went to The House! I always loving going to this place. I ordered something different. I got the Spinach and Chevre Salad.  It had baby spinach, sliced strawberries, marinated onions, almond crusted chevre, croutons, and fresh raspberry-red wine vinaigrette. Yum! It was a great light dinner since I had such a large lunch.
