Foodie Day - Trying New Things!

Sunday, February 10, 2013

Yesterday, Nicole and I went to the grocery store for just a couple things and we decided to throw caution to the wind and pick up a few of those healthier choices emoticon foods that we have been wanting to try but just never did.

It is so easy for me to SAY that I want to try something, but to put the money into actually buying it and worrying if I just wasted my money on something I will hate is a whole other story. Can you relate?

Well, this morning, I took the plunge. I had a breakfast that I have never had before! First of all, I rarely eat a good breakfast, if at all. I just get so busy that it doesn't happen. I also never eat yogurt. I just don't like the aftertaste of yogurt and it isn't something that I can usually stomach.

Well... today, all of that changed! I had GREEK yogurt. Chobani bite - Coffee with Dark Chocolate Chips.

It comes in a 4-pack and have 100 calories per container. I was hesitant to buy it since I wasn't sure if I would like the flavor, texture... or anything about it.

Luckily, I liked it!

Then, for dinner, we decided to make spaghetti. We always make separate noodles for the kids, but we had not decided what to make for the adults. We used our usually ground turkey to replace the ground beef. I added some no-salt-added diced tomatoes into the sauce for extra veggie power.

Then, I was rummaging around the cupboards and uncovered some noodles pasta that I completely forgot that I bought quinoa pasta a while ago. I never had the nerve to make it.

I have never tried quinoa, even though I have heard great reviews and I know how great it is for me.

Well, I made up these noodles tonight and they were an absolute hit! They are a little bit more earthy than the regular spaghetti noodles, but not as dense as whole wheat pasta (which I only eat because I should, not because I like it)


I recommend both the quinoa pasta AND the chobani coffee greek yogurt (if you like coffee).

I am going to try the caramel and pineapple flavor tomorrow for breakfast. Anyone try that one? What are your favorite greek yogurt flavors?
