Portion Shocker!
Thursday, February 25, 2010      7 comments

You would think that I have been doing this long enough that things wouldn't surprise me. And yet, they still do! So today I indulged in a bit of light ice cream. I'm trying to get away from it, but my magic bullet blade was completely di... Read more
Pumpkin Banana Muffins
Thursday, February 25, 2010      2 comments

Okay, first clean-eating muffin experiment! I have been playing around with some recipes so I can find some that are as filling as a VitaMuffin. I have made many tasty ones, before I was even worried about eating clean, but none of those stuck... Read more
It's Peanut Butter and Jelly Time!
Tuesday, February 23, 2010      8 comments

So today for lunch I ate a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I haven't eaten it like this in a LONG time. I love the flavor combination, but it has never been filling to me. But today, I decided to give it a try again. I used all-natura... Read more

So Aubrey and I are taking a little bit of a break in trying new recipes. We’re just eating some of the usual suspects lately. Our cleaned up recipes and a few unclean ones as we use up some of our old food. My favorite quick snack recent... Read more
My Most “Unclean” Meal
Sunday, February 21, 2010      9 comments

One of the meals that I am slowly trying to get away from is also the easiest meal for me to make! Zap some dogs, zap some beans, plop some salad on a plate. Done! The meal literally takes about five minutes from start to eating. So what is ... Read more
Growing Herbs at Home
Sunday, February 21, 2010      2 comments

Aubrey and I haven't made any new recipes lately, but we did start growing some herbs at home. We have had this kit to grow herbs for....I have absolutely no idea. More than a year? Quite awhile. It just kept sitting on a bookshelf just begg... Read more
Banana "Ice Cream"
Thursday, February 18, 2010      5 comments

It is amazing how I can look up some recipes and make them the exact same day, while other recipes I will put in my “try it” pile and it is days, weeks, or even a month before I give them a try. The recipe I tried today was one of those tha... Read more
Traveling and Eating
Wednesday, February 17, 2010      5 comments

Recently my husband and I went on a road trip to visit his mom. I knew we would be on the road for most of the day and I had no clue what I was going to eat. In the past, we would have stopped by a drive-thru, eaten out with his mom once we go... Read more

I know I have already typed a blog about this dish, but I thought I would add some pictures of the process. We had it again recently (because it’s YUMMY) and I snagged some photos. So far, this is the only recipe I have had ever had quinoa... Read more
Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

The funniest thing happened after I talked about not wanting pumpkin pie oatmeal for awhile. All I could think about this morning was eating some pumpkin pie oatmeal!! So I took some pictures of the process. The first thing I wanted was s... Read more
Kashi Cereal and Chobani Greek Yogurt
Saturday, February 13, 2010      2 comments

So I talked a bit in my oatmeal blog about getting obsessed with pumpkin pie oatmeal to the point where now I’ll consider eating it and think “ugh, not again!” I try not to just eat the same thing every day, but I tend to find a meal combin... Read more
Peanut Butter and Jam Oatmeal
Friday, February 12, 2010      8 comments

I am pretty new to eating oatmeal in general. I always hated how "soggy" it was. But I discovered that I just have to make sure I don't add too much liquid and then I can make it nice and chewy. My favorite topping for the longest time was ca... Read more
Pizza - I tried Amy's Spinach Pizza
Wednesday, February 10, 2010      6 comments

I love pizza. No seriously, I LOVE pizza. I have tried various “diet” pizzas, but the list of ingredients is longer than some short stories! So I tried an all-natural pizza for dinner tonight and was thoroughly impressed. I bought an Amy... Read more
Pita Pockets
Tuesday, February 09, 2010      4 comments

I have been trying out different wraps and I picked up these Kangaroo Pita Pockets. While not completely clean they have only one preservative instead of the 10+ that are in my favorite flatbread. I had one for lunch yesterday and I had it... Read more

Quinoa! Ever since trying the double broccoli quinoa* at New Seasons, Aubrey and I have made it a fixture in our kitchen. It is just SO good! Although this last time we had it, I think we made it too far in advance. The first time we made it... Read more
