For You Flintstones Fans... (and WIAW #66)

Before we get to the WIAW part of this post, let's talk Flintstones.

I was quite the Flintstones fan when I was younger and I'm super disappointed that they aren't on TV anymore (are they?)!

Since they clearly got into the holiday spirit, too (see above), today's giveaway in the 25 Days of Giveaways is for all of you hard-core Flintstone fans out there.

I'm looking at you, paleo people.

I'm not paleo (I don't get it) but I figure that if you're paleo you'd probably get on great with the Flintstone families - y'all could have Christmas dinner together!

Anyway, even if you're not paleo, this paleo-friendly giveaway looks so yummy that you'll want to get 
in on it anyway.

6 Grain free/almond flour granola bars

Today's giveaway is of a box of Primal Momma Grain-Free Almond Flour Granola Bars

Whether you're paleo, gluten-free, low-carb, vegan, (insert your diet here), or you just see food and eat it, these untraditional granola bars fit in your diet!

The only one they don't fit into is the SAD diet. They're too healthy for that. 

But they look so yummy that SADers would probably abandon ship to get their hands on these.


6 Grain free/almond flour granola bars

I haven't tried these yet (though it looks like I should order some soon - are those chocolate chips in there? And dried berries? And shredded coconut? All baked into an almond flour based bar, with just honey as a sweetener and no refined sugars? Why yes, that's so!) and sadly for me, I can't enter my own giveaway. 

But you guys can!

This giveaway is open to all of my US readers (sorry international folks - but I am running some international giveaways!). You have until December 12 to enter, so spread the love and share this giveaway with your friends & family! Sharing is part of the spirit of the holidays :)

Okay, now it's WIAW time.

Peas and Crayons

As always, here's a random assortment of some of the foods I've been enjoying lately! They're not all from one day, nor do they accurately depict what I eat in one day. I'm a college student, so obviously lots of sandwiches are consumed. 

And then there's my ice cream habit :) And all the bars that I love! Anyway, here are some of my food pics.


We'll start with this, since I have some form of yogurt-granola-fruit-nut butter parfait at least once a day, if not more.

What?! They're delicious!


As are microwave cakes. And I love tea!


Sprouted nuts are just amaaaaaaaazing. As is caramel with cacao nibs = new addiction.


Peanut butter cups and roasted kabocha will never get old. I had the other peanut butter cup while taking this photo, because it took forever - the batteries died when I turned on my camera, so I had to change the batteries. So annoying.

Wow, did I just complain about having to change batteries? New levels of laziness have been reached, folks. Please excuse me.

I have a good excuse:


Hundreds and hundreds of pages of reading a night (sadly, not all fun novels, like in the pic above - but a girl has to take a break sometime)!


Best enjoyed with roasted kabocha, milk chocolate, and a Betty Lou's Fruit bar. YUM :)

I also tried a new-to-me dairy brand!

Cabot Cheese is a northeastern farm family coop that's been making hard and soft cheeses, yogurts, whipped cream, and more dairy delights for the past 90 years. I'd been craving cottage cheese lately (does that happen to anyone else? Cottage cheese is one of those foods that I don't eat regularly, but I'll occasionally really, really want some cottage cheese with peanut butter and granola. It's just the perfect late night study snack. So I gave Cabot Vermont-Style Cottage Cheese a try!



 It comes in regular and no fat varieties, but my local store was all out of regular and only had two of these left on the shelf. I'll take that as a good sign that they were almost all sold out?

Or maybe my grocery store just needs to do better stocking. :P


This cottage cheese has nice size curds and a nice creamy white color. Sometimes nonfat cottage cheese can be a little water, but this one was creamy and great - no watery layer at all.

The flavor was also quite good. I tend to prefer my cottage cheese on the saltier side, since I like pairing it with sweet granola. This wasn't a very salty cottage cheese. But the good thing about that (other than it being a solid option for people watching their sodium intake) is that you can always add a little sprinkle of salt.


It's a great base for lots of yummy creations :)


Cottage cheese + peanut butter + cacao nibs + honey + crunchy stuff = match made in heaven.

Did you watch the Flintstones?

Do you prefer the Flintstones or the Jetsons?

What's your favorite kind of book?

  1. I definitely watched the Flintstones a lot growing up. Actually, up until a few years ago I was still taking their gummy chewables.... Hey! They tasted like candy :D

    I prefer the Flintstones just because we rarely watched the Jetsons. The Grungies were so cute though!

    My favorite kind of book is fiction. I actually like Young Adult/teen fiction still because a lot of "adult" books just seem to be smut. Lol. I also like reading some classics, and sometimes non-fiction.

  3. Hmm, I can't say I had a favourite kind of book. Actually, I like reading one serious and one light-hearted book interchangeably, depending on my mood on the very day. Right now one of the books I'm reading "The fault in our stars" by John Green which is a seriously good read.
