The New Kashi Ad
Hi again!! Your additions to my list about the best things about spring were so great! The next one on my own list was sundresses, but listing five seemed better than six. But flip flops and BBQs and flowers..all so wonderful.
This Wednesday morning would have normally meant Bikram, but having to be at work early meant that wasn’t possible. Instead I went to the gym for some treadmill intervals and an arm workout. I started by running 4 miles looking like this:
- 9 minute warm up at 6.6mph
- 1 minute intervals from 8.0 up to 9.0 with 1 minute recovery in between at 6.7mph
- ~ .25 mile cool down at 6.6mph
Then I stretched and did a few circuits with arm weights. I am getting addicted to strength training. Seeing muscles pop out in your arms is so fun:)
This is a new dress that I got at the J.Crew outlet while in Hilton Head last month. It’s a little bit bag-ish without the belt, but belt-and-go dresses are my favorite!
And of course I wore a sweater with it so I wouldn’t freeze my toosh off. It pains me to cover up those cute sleeves though.
I used up the last of my pumpkin in some overnight oats topped with 1/2 banana and pecan butter this morning. Good thing too since breakfast at my work meetings today was bacon and waffles as opposed to yesterday’s oatmeal.
I was supposed to have lunch with a buddy from work, but things got confused so I ended up just getting Panera on my own. Check out these cute centerpieces they have on the tables now! Bread bowl vases:)
But somehow even though I had my camera out for that picture, I forgot to take a picture of my meal until it looked like this:
Oops! It was their Thai Chicken Salad, no chicken and no wonton strips. Whole grain baguette on the side. I finished that by the way.
And back at the office I had an apple and then some snap peas and hummus as a snack.
I’d been planning a kind of random dinner all day. I wanted a Green Monster in a bowl and a baked sweet potato for some carbs. Not exactly typical dinner fare, but it works! I made my chocolate vanilla Green Monster and topped my baked sweet potato with lots of cinnamon. A handful of unpictured multigrain Wheat Thins finished off the meal.
Have you guys seen the new ads that Kashi is running? I found this one in Whole Living Magazine.
On the right it lists a whole bunch of common ingredients in packaged foods, explains what they are, and classifies them as “good” or “bad” (Or in their world, things they’d use and things they wouldn’t).
I definitely learned something from it! Sometimes there are weird sounding ingredients that are actually just a derivative of a natural food and aren’t all that bad for you. But usually I think any time I see a weird word it’s automatically bad. I think this ad is pretty cool! Not your average food advertisement, but I’m all for educating people and getting them to pay more attention to ingredient lists.
- What do you think about this ad? Do you think people will actually pay attention to it?
Have a great night!!
