Chakra Hiking

My mom and I planned to go hiking up Mt. Doug this morning. We wanted to switch up our Sunday morning run because next weekend is the Times Colonist 10km race. Hiking will hopefully give our muscles that extra boost to push harder through the race and challenge our previous times.

I thought this was a good time to try out 'The Chakra Bar' I bought yesterday.

Nutrition Facts are based on 1/2 the bar. Probably not the best for someone looking to lose weight, but otherwise its a great breakfast or meal on the go.

Though the picture doesn't do it justice, the spirulina made it a beautiful green color. It tasted really good, medium sweetless and an oaty flavor.

The hike was fairly easy, and you couldn't ask for better weather. Felt so nice sitting on the rocks and looking out into the ocean.

Had some more split pea soup for lunch.

It was pretty thick today, but delicious as usual.

Cut up some pineapple for dinner... then may have went for seconds :P

Eek i'm so sleepy. Felt like a lazy sunday. Hopefully there's something good on tv tonight. Have a great evening little squirrel readers !!!

what is in that little bar that makes it so high in cal?! You most likely burned it all of hiking anyways!!!!!

It's cool to see your bar translated into french....that is it right?? i am so used to spanish (not a fan of spanish - doesn't help it was forced down my throat in high school and I'm in Texas...that's all I see hahaha)

@ Alex:
i think it could be the almond butter that makes it high cal? .. weird. and yea we're bilingual french/english here. good job for noticing!!

I understood most of the French, took it in high school and some in college. Helps that Spanish is my first language.

That view is stunning.

Hope you had a good weekend!

I love how you and your mom go running and hiking together. What wonderful bonding time! The weather seemed perfect for your hike, too.

There's really nothing like a lazy Sunday :) Glad you enjoyed it!

Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog post <3

Such a beautiful hike! I get so envious of people from BC at times, I almost did my undergrad at UBC or U Vic but in the end I went to the opposite side of the country at Dal. Its also beautiful there..but I've never been to BC and would still really love to go.

I tried that chakra bar once and really liked it. I love the natural ingredients list.
