Yep, not a recipe, not a recap...
Hello everyone! I hope everyone's week is off to a fantastic start! :D
So I wanted to show you all a new favorite combo that I've eaten non-stop over the last few days. After seeing Alexandra
mix protein powder and/or nut butter with cottage cheese or Greek yogurt, I knew it would make an appearance in one of my future meals. Little did I know it would take over
all my future meals for the next few days! "A 'healthy diet' should consist of a variety of different foods," is something I've always heard. Oops. Variety? That word wasn't really a part of my vocabulary over the last few days as I happily munched on numerous yogurt/cottage cheese combinations piled onto a toasted english muffin. But a healthy diet is also eating what you crave, so it's all good, right? Right
? Anywho, healthy or not, I couldn't stop eating it! I didn't take a picture of every one, but here's a few:
Cottage cheese mixed with almond butter and cinnamon (I also mixed AB and cinnamon with Greek yogurt a lot).
Pesto mixed with Greek yogurt (and Photobooth saves the day again!).
Terra's Whey blueberry protein powder mixed with Greek yogurt.
And a close up of the fries:
Those would be Katie's Butter(nut) Me Up Fries
and, of course, her dressing.
(You didn't think I could actually do a post without one of Katie's recipes did you? ;) Now I strongly dislike regular ole' fries, but sweet potatoes fries are a different story and so are these fries! The little matchsticks of butternut squash above cooked to perfection were little bites of heaven in my mouth. I even saved them for last, which, if you know me, means it was my favorite thing on my plate. Even above the yogurt mixture on english muffin. Now that's
When all my cottage cheese, Greek yogurt, and english muffins disappeared, I had resort to some of my other favorites, one being Tempah!
Grilled tempah with sweet and spicy mustard, a mix of steamed veggies, and puffins in almond milk.
You may be wondering why I've never blogged about tempah before if it's one of my favorites. The truth is, I don't get tempah very often. Why? My stomach and tempah are enemies. Every time I eat it, it turns my stomach upside down. But every once in a while, the discomfort is worth the taste. ;)
Another favorite? Panera's Greek salad with the whole grain baguette:
Last night's dinner. I also had some (un-pictured) peanut butter stuffed dates for dessert.
Grrr, I don't like it when they put the dressing on the side! This may sound gross, but I like my lettuce leaves limp from being soaked in dressing. I know a salad is supposed to have crisp lettuce leaves, but I just don't like it that way.
Of course, Panera's Greek salad tastes nothing like a real Greek salad, but it's still delicious in its own way! Nom nom :)
Is there a food or food combination that you liked so much you ate it non-stop?
Have a great day everyone!
