Milk and Cookies {GIVEAWAY}

by Lauren on July 9, 2012

Hi everyone!

How was your Monday?  Mine was BUSY and interesting at the same time.  I had a full day of work on my plate and spent the entire day out of the office so now I’m feeling a little all over the place.


I’m not sure if I mentioned this yet but we recently discovered that Toly has developed a dairy allergy.  For the past year, he has been having stomach issues mid morning.  It was only on weekdays and it would happen around the same time every day at work.  For the past 25 years, the boy has eaten the exact same breakfast M-F, cereal with milk and a bagel with cream cheese.

It didn’t take me long to figure out that it was probably the milk that was causing his trouble.  I suggested he eliminated it for a week entirely to see how he felt and low and behold, he felt perfectly fine without milk.  So guess what, he is now enjoying almond milk on his cereal and chocolate almond butter on his bagels.  Look at what I’ve done!

And even better, I convinced him this past weekend to start eating yogurt bowls for breakfast.  He is now a complete breakfast convert!

This morning  saw reminisce of yogurt, berries and granola in the sink.  I’m not sure if his looked quite as good as mine but he’s on the right track.

As I mentioned, I was out all day which included a lunch meeting over sushi.  I didn’t take a picture but my spicy tuna roll was perfect.

Dinner tonight was based off this post I saw this morning.


Grilled peaches are just about the best thing you possibly put into a salad.  Trust me on this.  Oh and grilled eggplant, yeah it’s unreal.  What else went into this salad you ask?  Let’s see, homegrown cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, purple cabbage, feta cheese and balsamic.  Rather unbelievable really.

As I was cleaning up dinner tonight, I spotted two very dirty bananas that are begging to be turned into some kind of delicious baked good!

Quick, I need ideas!

Not like I need more delicious baked goods in my life because I’ve been working my way through the unbelievably awesome cookies that I was recently sent from Almondina.

I had the pleasure of meeting the wonderful people from Almondina at the Fancy Food Show a few weeks ago where they allowed me to sample their cookies.  I have always been a fan of biscotti and these remind me very much of a crunchy sweet biscuit. I absolutely love that they are filled with so much character and flavor.

Just check out all of these exclusive flavors!

Chocolate Cherry






So far, I’ve worked my way through the Original and the Cinnaroma but I’m about to crack open the Choconut pretty soon.  They are a perfect afternoon treat and with no added fat, no cholesterol, and around 35 calories per cookie, you have no excuse to feel bad about eating a cookie.

So I’m sure you are all dying to try these right?  Well, fortunately, Almondina is going to give one reader a sample of ALL of the flavors I mentioned above. 

To Enter: 

First, visit the Almondina Facebook page and like them.

Then head over to my Facebook page and leave a comment on the giveaway post there letting me know you did so.

I will choose a winner on Thursday, July 12th.

I hope you all had a wonderful start to your week!

Question: If you have a significant other, do they eat similar to you?
