There were Krispy Kremes in my house and true to my word I didn't have one! There are STILL Krispy Kremes in my house. But I ain't bitin'.
For breakast I did take a photo of one Krispy Kreme to show that for almost 200 calories I could have had ONE of these...
(doesn't that look greasy?)
Or for a few more calories had...
I chose the latter. More fulfilling and nutritious!! I had some coffee with it.
Then for a snack I did a fun project with the kids and made healthy "Heart Tarts". They are made with Pepperidge Farm whole-wheat deli flats, some light cream cheese and some sugar-free jam. You use a heart cookie cutter to cut a heart in the top piece of bread. (I got this recipe from a great cookbook for kids that has easy recipes).
I had a healthy sandwich with some not-so-healthy Trader Joe's mac & cheese, but I only had a quarter cup of it. It was fulfilling.
I had a healthy smoothie we made with the girls that had fresh strawberries, greek yogurt, a touch of honey and some orange juice and ice chips. I also had just half of a heart cookie.
(couldn't figure out how to rotate it without photoshop)
Some Trader Joe's sushi and my husband and I split some green curry and jasmine rice. I also had a Blue Moon beer, it just goes really well with sushi! (I had eaten one piece of sushi before I took the picture).
p.s. I didn't realize how many calories were in the beer, - 171!! That's nuts. I barely ever drink beer and I don't think I'll have another for a LONG time!
Me with my girls decorating for Valentine's Day today.
p.s.s. I know we use paper plates too much. I do care about the environment...my hubby is our dishwasher and right now with the baby and our toddler it's just easier sometimes to go with paper. But we are trying to change :)
