QT with My Family

I mixed some frozen berries and granola into my vanilla yogurt.  I think vanilla is my favorite flavor of regular yogurt.  It may not really contain less sugar, but to me, it tastes less sugary.  Just creamy and delicious! Down to the wire…  I made it over to the Museum of Science on the final [...]

Flogging Molly

I took a nap after running and woke up HUNGRY.  Cheese tortellini was the easiest and fastest thing to make.  Topped with olive oil and a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese. Jared and I went to the House of Blues because we had tickets to see Flogging Molly!  The HoB has a cool vibe; I loved [...]

Going the Distance

We were supposed to end the Vegetarian Challenge by cooking a tofu meal at home… Instead we ended up having dinner at Picco with a group of friends.  For the last meal of my Vegetarian Challenge, I had red wine and a few slices of the Neapolitan pizza. My friends are awesome! We stayed at [...]

Vegetarian Challege Day #5

As promised, more Laughing Cow cheese. I have a few more sugary yogurts to consume before I can buy Greek yogurt and the plain stuff.  I added some granola and at this for lunch. Gym time!  I ran 3 miles this afternoon.  Each time I run on the treadmill, my pace needs to be 9:15 [...]

Nicaragua Segovia coffee

I made some “berry” yummy oats with the last of my bag of stove top oats: 1 cup of water 1/2 cup of oatmeal 1 tablespoon of blueberry flax seed 1 tablespoon of brown sugar 1 cup of frozen mixed berries sprinkle of dark chocolate chips I also completed by taste test of my last [...]

Vegetarian Challenge Day #4

Yay, it seems like lots of you are hooked on Laughing Cow cheese.  I had yet another wedge today.  I ate half of these Triscuits and saved the rest for tomorrow.  Gives me a reason to have more cheese. It was good to get something in my stomach before Body Pump! It was a really [...]

Switch It, Change It

Rearrange it!  I had a very similar breakfast yesterday, but today’s had a slight twist.  I used strawberry yogurt instead of vanilla.  After posting the article about surprisingly sugary foods, I took a peek at the yogurt info.  24 grams of sugar, yikes!  I’m not monitoring my sugar intake so I ate it anyway.  But [...]

Locke Monster

I felt like the Locke Monster on Lost.  I swear some other creature had taken over my body because I couldn’t stop snacking.  That’s really not like me!  It nibble throughout the workday, but I’m usually not too bad. I enjoyed a cup of Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride tea and some almond clusters.  Multiply this [...]

Surprisingly Sugary Foods

It’s the third day of my Vegetarian Challenge! I made a delicious yogurt bowl for breakfast this morning.  I started with a base of vanilla yogurt and added 1/2 of a banana, vanilla granola, and a spoonful of peanut butter.  I loved eating it, and Miles loved licking my spoon when I was done. I [...]

Black Bean Burgers

I started to snack on TJ’s pomegranate Greek yogurt, but I only got a few bites in.  Not a fan; didn’t like the taste.  I’m a Chobani girl at heart. I made my own version of black bean burgers.  My burgers contained: 1 can of Cuban style black beans 1/4 cup of onions 1/4 cup [...]
