Elli Quark is definitely high on the list of snacks for me when I can find them. Elli Quark Red Velvet tastes just like a red velvet cake, but in super healthy quark form. If you’ve never tried quark before, check out my review.
One of my favorite rolls is called the Naruto Roll. Ordering a sushi roll “naruto style” means the roll is wrapped in thin slices of cucumber instead of rice. I special ordered mine with tuna, crab and salmon sans the avocado. I also had a side order of seaweed salad and some hot and sour soup!
My afternoon snack was a sample sized Fit Joy Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar that I had picked up at Vitamin Shoppe. I definitely didn’t get much peanut butter flavor in my bar. The flavor was mainly chocolate with a very slight hint of peanut butter. If you try this bar and feel differently, let me know!
Dinner was broiled maple glazed salmon with wild rice and sauteed green beans. I had some fresh herbs on hand that paired beautifully with both the salmon and wild rice!
That’s it for this week’s roundup! See you back here on Friday!
