Do you guys ever attach hashtags to your thoughts? Lately I feel like I’ve been ending a lot of mine with #winningatlife.

Last week I started doing diet assessments and food recalls for patients at the diabetes clinic, and after my first go at it, my preceptor turned to me and said “You totally nailed that”. #winningatlife

Over the weekend I ran 3 miles at a decent pace and only took two 30 second walking breaks. #winningatlife

One of the nurses complimented my outfit when I wore my new yellow Banana Republic pencil skirt last week. #winningatlife

I made OMG-so-delicious chocolate chip soy nut butter Larabars, a nut free copycat version of the chocolate chip PB Larabar flavour. #winningatlife

I made these bars using Enjoy Life‘s new dark chocolate morsels, which I was sent by the company to review. You know what’s awesome about these chocolate chips? They have two ingredients: unsweetened chocolate and cane sugar. That’s it! The other great thing about these is that like all their products, they are nut, gluten, soy, and dairy free. With so many friends and family members with special diets and/or allergies, these will be perfect for all my holiday baking.

Thank you to Enjoy Life for sending me this product to review. Even though I was sent the chocolate chips free of charge, I was not otherwise compensated and all opinions are my own.

    And seriously, I think in hashtags all the time! But since I’ve been #undertheweather for the last couple of days, barely moving around like a #lazybum, my latest hashtag would be #bratdiet. Ha! Let’s just hope I get my energy up for my #birthday this weekend so I can #eatallthethings! ;)

  18. Just made these this week when the Princess had a snow day. Wonderful taste and lunchbox approved.
