Healthy No-Bake Peanut Butter Oat Bars. Someone recommended these on Instagram and I am eager to try them (probably with Almond Butter).

Since I am using up all the zucchini my co-worker keeps bringing in, I want to try this whole wheat chocolate zucchini bundt cake next.

Share a good link with me in the comments!

  1. Those pb oat bars look really easy and good – and they are GF! I might have to try those. Maybe Paul would like them and that would give us another easy breakfast for him. I also loved that grid of salad dressings. I pretty much always make my salad dressing but I make the same combo over and over and over again.

    Phones are totally the new cigarette. So ridiculously addicting. I’ve been trying to use the screen time function on the iPhone to limit my use, though, and that has helped. But there is still room for improvement!

  2. Those 5 words is a neat approach to that. Could help diffuse a lot of worries too! Im saving the PB oat bars too. YUM! Have an amazing week!!!

  3. The Attention Diet is a great read! And I love the salad dressing chart, we like making homemade dressing so that would be a good one to keep around the kitchen!

  4. Thanks for sharing. I should really look more at that Gmail Pro Tip. I don’t use Gmail for everything, but it’s on my resumes, etc.


  5. “Get renter’s insurance” has been on my to-do list for at least a year, no joke. I’m not even really sure why I haven’t yet, as I’ve been in my apartment for about 5 years! I guess it was because of one of the reasons listed, that I “didn’t have enough (expensive) stuff for renter’s insurance.” I definitely didn’t know that it covered things like hotel expenses in case of an emergency though, and that alone would make it worth it to me. So yeah, I’m going to get it right now! Thanks for sharing :)

  6. These are awesome links!! Thank you for sharing—there are a few on here I’ll have to bookmark for later. Like women buying a house together (YES!) and curious about renters insurance. And yes to phones being the new cigarette 🙄😩

  7. You always have the best links and I end up in a wormhole of reading! HAHA!
