Chocolate Covered Garlic

Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous Saturday night - I know I did. After letting the salad beast food baby die down, I headed to Ormond Wine Co for a relaxing night of wine. I wanted to cut down on alcohol consumption because I've found that I gain weight easily when I overindulge on alcohol, but I figured wine is fine because it's heart healthy and I like drinking it too much to stop completely. So, my plan was to just have a glass or two and then switch to water. Mission completed!

I started with an "array of reds" flight. They were pretty generous with the pours because it took me a while to finish.

My favorite was the L de Lyeth Zinfandel; I ended up ordering a full glass.

Now, forget about the wine for a moment, and focus on this beauty:

Be still, my heart. A whole roasted bulb of garlic with the sweetest balsamic reduction I've ever had. It was served with a generous amount of bread and crostini. I demolished about 75% of the garlic.

Much to my dismay, I was really "feeling it" after the flight + glass of wine, so I switched to water. I'm not sure why it went to my head so fast, but I definitely enjoyed the wine and knew my limits.

Due to ending my night garlicky and not sweetly, I created a nice (healthy) indulgent breakfast.

Frosted breakfast cookie with 1/2 cup oats, 1 tbsp sunbutter, 1/2 scoop rice protein, 1/8 cup almond milk, vanilla, and chocolate chips, topped with banana soft serve and more chips. Once again, be still, my heart.
