Need More Veggies!

I'm not going to lie. I love fruit! I tend to gravitate towards foods that are sweet, and fruit is no exception. For me, it's easier to get in more fruit servings than vegetable servings. There's a really interesting article on fruits and vegetables here. According to the article, it is recommended to get between five and thirteen servings of fruits and vegetables a day, which roughly equates to 2½ to 6½ cups per day. I know I eat a lot of fruit in my day, but not this much! (I also think that this recommendation is way on the high side!)

Anyway....after analyzing my daily food intake, I decided that it's time to up the vegetables. This decision came just in time. One of my co-workers has an abundance of tomatoes, and she asked if I could use some. I am never one to turn down food (and free food, to boot!), so I accepted. She came into work the next day with this monstrosity:


Holy tomatoes, Batman!

I should add that this was after I gave some away to other co-workers who saw my loot and were jealous. I've already dug into this supply and can't wait to eat more!

I also asked the husband to cook up some asparagus for this week's side dish, and he happily complied.


Shortly after this picture, my camera decided it was time to break. The little button that switches between play mode, record mode and view mode popped off. I immediately went on a search for a new camera and found a Nikon that has its own food picture setting! How cool is that?

Thankfully, my new camera and my old camera use the same memory card, so I was able to salvage all of my pictures. I am once again a happy girl.

Question of the Day:
What is your favorite fruit or vegetable?

I love bananas like nobody's business. They are just the right combination of sweet and satisfying!

Until next time!

It Tastes Better When Someone Else Makes It

Two weeks ago, a member of Weight Watchers brought in some food for everyone to taste. Typically, this is not allowed (yay for corporate rules), so we saved his taste testing for after the meeting.

The member had made eggplant stew with Moroccan curry couscous. Don't get me wrong, I love eggplant parmesan, but eggplant stew? It didn't sound appealing. I decided to taste it anyway, and I was surprised. It was slightly spicy (from the couscous) and was extremely flavorful. I copied down his recipe he found on fatsecret, and put it on my menu plan for this week.

I should have known when I couldn't find the Moroccan curry couscous that I wasn't supposed to make it. But, I decided to go with the flow, and use the plain couscous I had in the house.

When I made the recipe, I noticed how bland it looked. I added a few more spices than the recipe recommended but came up with it looking like this.




Hmm....doesn't look to tasty, but what the heck, I'll try it anyway.
Continuing to boil in the pot.
My entire box of couscous. I love the stuff, but forgot how much it actually makes!
The end result? It was just okay. It was pretty bland despite the fact that I used many more seasonings than the recipe called for. It didn't taste at all like the sample I had a week ago. Why do things always taste better when someone else makes it?
Oh well, at least I can say I tried it!
As for the chicken last night, it was really good! Not too garlicky at all! I will be buying this marinade again, but not for a little while. I have plenty leftover.
Question of the Day:
What do you do when your meal is a dud? Do you eat it anyway or make something new?
I try to suck it up and eat it. I don't like to waste food, but then again, I don't like to eat terrible tasting food either!
Have a great weekend!
Until next time!

A New Kind of Chicken

I can't tell you how happy I am that it's Thursday. With the start of classes this week, work has been insane! Thankfully there's only one more day until the weekend starts! Even though it'll be a busy weekend, especially with a bridal shower and a birthday party in the same day, I'm looking forward to some rest.

So I may or may not have a tiny obsession with chicken. There are so many different ways to prepare it, but I usually stick to the same methods. I saw a marinade at Aldi's (I promise to do a post about that store very soon) and couldn't resist buying it.

My one problem with marinades is that I can't justify spending a few dollars on them if they don't taste good. I'm always leery of the taste. I've found that the descriptions on the bottles usually sound awesome, but the taste is disappointing. When I saw this for $0.99, I knew I had to try it.



I love herbs. I love garlic. Hopefully I'll love the marinade!


I have to admit that this looks like Italian dressing poured over the chicken. My mom used to make chicken that way when I was younger, and I was not a fan. Sorry mom!

I haven't gotten a chance to taste it yet, but tonight's the big night. When the husband opened the bottle, there was an intense garlic smell. I guess I should also serve some mints with dinner. haha.

Question of the Day:
What is your favorite way to make chicken?

I'll eat chicken almost any way, but I love to make chicken parmesan and chicken cutlet. So tasty!

Until next time!

Pretty in Peach

Truthfully, I prefer to bake rather than cook. Don't get me wrong, I love making dinners for the hubby and I, but there's something about baking that is appealing. Maybe it's the aromas, the finishing product being something sweet, or the remembrance of holidays. Or.....maybe it's because I don't bake as often as I cook.

On Saturday I had my mom, brother and girlfriend over to the house for dinner. I'm almost always at my mom's house at some point during the weekend, but she's rarely at my house. She has some oddity about popping over for a visit that makes her feel uncomfortable. She likes to be invited over the house instead of telling me when she wants to come over, so I invited her to come over this weekend. I wonder if it's a generational thing.

I wanted to bake something special for dessert. I have my standard go-to's, like rice krispie treats or cookies, but I wanted to do something different this time. When I was at the BBQ a few weeks ago, someone brought a peach cake that looked outstanding. There were layers of peaches in the middle of the cake and on top. It looked so pretty that I decided to give it a try.

I baked the cake in the traditional diet coke method from Weight Watchers. Wherever I can cut calories without compromising taste, I will. You can get the recipe for the diet coke cake here.



Picked this up at Aldi's for $0.85. It was very tasty!


The ingredients on the oven



All mixed and ready to be baked
Cooling time!

I iced the first layer with fat free cool whip and added some canned peaches. The next time I do this, I would probably press the peaches into the cake so that the top layer lays nice and flat. It was a bit of a rocky road icing the rest of the cake!


The finished product.
I realize that I should havetaken a picture of the inside of the cake, which turned out beautiful. I was too busy eating it to think about photography.
Question of the Day;
Do you prefer to bake or to cook?

Until next time!

New Casserole, New Love

Hello and happy Tuesday!

Is it just me, or are these weeks flying by? I cannot believe we are almost at the end of August. Seriously, where did the time go?

As you know, I have a sincere love of casseroles. They make my life so much easier! Since I've been trying to make new meals (and I think Gina will beat me if I make the BBQ chicken one more time), I saw a recipe that I've had bookmarked for awhile but haven't tried yet. I present to you Layered Fiesta Casserole.

Of course, I had to make some modifications. I remember when I first started cooking how I had to have every ingredient on the recipe list. I've calmed down since then, and have started adding my own twist to the recipes. In this one, for example, I used one giant pepper instead of a red one and a green one. Also, instead of using the 12 corn tortillas, I cut a six pack of Aldi's Flatout-type tortillas, and it worked perfectly. I couldn't find any 2% shredded cheddar cheese, so I went with 2% mozzarella.

While I was making the dish, I couldn't get over how pretty it looked in the skillet. Either I have just lost my mind by calling food pretty, or else I'm onto something. You be the judge.




See? Look how many colors!





Layering the tortillas, meat and veggie mixture


Out of the oven. I have to work on lighting for my pictures, but I think I'm getting better.

The husband and I ate this last night with a side salad. It was very filling, and the husband appreciated the ground turkey and tortilla combination. I think it reminded him of a taco.

Question of the Day:

What do you serve as a side dish with your meals? Are you usually a salad person, potato person or veggie person?

In the winter, I'm usually a frozen veggies kind of gal. In the summer, it's been mostly salad. Yum!

Until next time!

Pizza on the Brain

If there's one thing that I love almost as much as my grandmom's homemade green spaghetti, it's pizza. Although I'm not terribly particular about where I get it from, one thing's for sure-it has to be piping hot and very cheesy. If it doesn't have a lot of grease dripping off of it, that's definitely a plus!

Admittedly, I haven't had takeout pizza in over a year. Why? Well, simple! I make it myself. The best part is that I don't miss the greasy, overly cheesy and calorie-laden pizza at all. I much prefer knowing what goes into my pizza, and honestly, I think it tastes better because I know what's in it.

The first time I made my own homemade dough, I was really proud of my results. Even though I loved the recipe, I wanted to try something knew.

If at all possible, I found another very easy, very tasty (and pretty low calorie) recipe for pizza dough. The only modification I made was that I used all whole wheat dough instead of the all purpose flour. Thanks so much for the recipe, Jenna!

The best part about this recipe is that you can freeze half of the dough. Two pizzas for the work of one? Yes, please! No lie, I have been making this pizza once a week. The husband and I both love it, and it works for the weekends.



This is not the best looking dough, but it was right out of the freezer.

Out of the oven

Cheesy-ness!!
Question of the Day:
What is your favorite pizza topping?
When I was younger, I loved pepperoni on my pizza. Now, I'm more of a cheese kinda girl.
Enjoy the rest of your day!
Until next time!

Made from the Best Stuff on Earth

You may be thinking that I'm talking about Snapple, but in fact, I'm talking about this:



I love almond butter like nobody's business. I could eat an entire jar in two days, no lie. It has a slightly sweeter taste than regular peanut butter and has a less gritty texture. The problem is that I don't find it in supermarkets very much, and when I do, it's $6.00-$7.00 a jar. While I do realize that Trader Joe's carries this amazing goodness for less money, I can't remember if they have the Mara Natha brand or not. Plus, it doesn't make sense for me to go out of my way for one jar of almond butter. Although after tasting it again this weekend for the first time in a long time, I may have to reconsider.

How did I come across this amazing jar this week? Well, let me tell you! I had to make a crazy impromptu stop at Acme this week for some bran muffins. The husband was really craving some, and the three stores I went to all had blueberry and chocolate chip. Really? You're a grocery store!! More options, please!! Me, being the food obsessor that I am, decided that I was going on a mission to find the boy some muffins. I mean seriously, how hard is it to find bran muffins?

I guess I should mention that any time I go to a new supermarket, one of the first aisles I hit is the peanut butter aisle. I'm always searching for the yummy goodness that is almond butter. I was completely surprised when I saw that Acme carried it. Even better? They actually had bran muffins-double score!!

I can't get over how amazing almond butter is, and yet it's hard for me to exactly describe it's taste. It's something that you must try for yourself. Even though this is the creamy version, I prefer the chunky. There's something about chunks of almonds in the nut butter that makes me happy.

I keep telling the husband that we should get a food processor so that I can make my own nut butter, but he hasn't gone for it yet. But hey, a girl can dream, right?

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend! My mom, brother and his girlfriend are coming over to the house for dinner tomorrow. I'm hoping to replicate a peach cake that I saw at a BBQ a few weeks ago. We'll see how that goes!

Question of the Day:
What is your favorite kind of nut butter?

Until next time!

Workout Music

Here we are - almost at the end of the week! This week practically flew by for me. I don't know about you, but I can't remember time passing by so quickly when I was in school. I thought grade school lasted FOREVER!! The older I get, the faster time flies!

I know I usually blog about food, but today I decided to talk about exercise. From a personal standpoint, I find I function better if I work out in the mornings. This has worked for me for two reasons:

1. It gets my exercise out of the way before I really start my day

2. It's awesome to walk into a gym and not have to wait for a machine

The cons? I don't particularly enjoy getting up at 4:20 to go to the gym. Once I get past the exhausted feeling, I'm usually good to go. It definitely helps getting a solid night's rest the night before.

While at the gym, I try to split my time between cardio and weights. Weights are a new thing for me, but I am incorporating them more and more, and I am actually finding it enjoyable!

One of the major motivators for me to work out is music. I created a few playlists on iTunes, but after hearing them over and over, it gets boring! While perusing other blogs, I found out that Jillian Michaels does a weekly podcast on KFI radio. Nothing beats free advice from Jillian! Plus, her podcasts are over an hour long, and I find them so darn interesting! It is very distracting for me when I'm working out, which is such a good thing. I can tune into what she's saying and tune out the timer on the cardio machine.

The bad news? Jillian recently gave up doing the radio show. With that being said, there are podcasts available from January through mid-July, so that's a ton of hours and good advice to listen to! Interested in downloading it? Here are the instructions.

I guess this leads me to the question of the day:

Question of the Day:

What do you listen to when you work out?

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Until next time!

A New Take on an Old Favorite

I am definitely a "cook once eat all work week" type of girl. After a long day at work, it's much easier to throw something in the microwave and make a salad than it is for me to make something from scratch. The way I cook is to typically make one type of casserole dish that will last for three meals, and figure out something to make on the other two days. My mainstay casserole dish is usually baked ziti. It's quick, it's easy, and I can't get enough of pasta and cheese!

This week, I wanted to do something different. With the husband working on house projects, I decided to take the time to twist my old go-to baked ziti recipe.

I guess I would call this Pasta with a Twist.

Ingredients:

1 box of whole wheat rotini
1/2 bag (or so) of frozen peas, defrosted
1/2 pound lean turkey
1 cup (plus a little extra) of part skim mozzarella cheese
1 jar of your favorite marinara sauce

Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Cook the turkey in a skillet. Add the peas and cook until peas are defrosted
3. While turkey is browning, cook and drain the rotini
4. Combine the pasta, peas and turkey in a bowl
5. Add the marinara sauce and stir to combine
5. Place mixture into a 9x13 pan
6. Top with cheese
7. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted
8. Enjoy!

I remembered to take pictures of the process-yay!


I realize this may not look that appetizing, but wait until it's all finished before you judge!



Getting ready to go into the oven



All done!



I love melted cheese. It makes me smile!

Question of the Day:
When you cook, are you the type to follow a recipe word for word or do you whip up something on your own?

For me, I'm a recipe card girl about 99% of the time. While I don't have to follow a recipe exactly how it's written, I like to have a guide to go by!

Until next time!

Crustless Quiche!

After having an extremely slow summer during work, things have finally picked up. For those of you who didn't know, I work at a college as an administrative assistant for ten professors. It can get pretty crazy pretty fast. Yesterday was Orientation, so needless to say, today I am positively swamped. I definitely needed a break from all of the work to make a blog post though! Updating the blog is the perfect way to destress!

I have wanted to make a quiche ever since I realized how easy they were to throw together. My mom uses Pillsbury Pie Crust, but I was cheap and didn't want to buy one just for this recipe. I decided to make mine crustless, and it came out perfectly!

My quiche consisted of:

4 eggs
5 egg whites
leftover ham, chopped
about a cup or so of frozen veggies, defrosted
1 cup of part skim mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup of fat free milk
Spices!!! I used oregano, basil and garlic powder, but feel free to use whatever you want!

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Layer the ham and veggies on the bottom of a 9 inch pie plate
3. Sprinkle on the cheese
4. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs and milk together; add spices
5. Pour over ham, veggie and cheese mixture
6. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes, or until the eggs set
7. Enjoy!



Right out of the oven


Close up

This was a great way for me to use up some eggs and frozen veggies that have been around the kitchen for awhile. Something that I love about this recipe is that the combinations are endless. You could make the quiche with just veggies, throw in some chicken....get creative! It was a simple meal, and one that I will definitely be making again!

Question of the Day:
What is your easiest recipe?

Until next time!

A Different Kind of Ravioli

Happy Monday! (Or not so happy, depending on how you look at the start of the school/work week!)

I've been craving something different. Something with pasta, cheese and gravy (or, as some non-Italians call it, sauce). I decided to make fried ravioli's. I have never had them before, but after much discussion with Gina, I knew that I had to try them.

This recipe was so simple, but it did take some prep work. I let this bag defrost in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.


After they were mostly thawed out, I dipped them in one egg white (until I realized that I needed way more than that! I ended up using another whole egg to finish breading the bag) and then into breadcrumbs.

Even though I LOVE fried food, I don't eat it often. In order to cut back on some of the fat, I tried to use cooking spray. This didn't turn out as well as I hoped, so I kept adding small amounts of olive oil. I was shocked at how much oil the ravioli's needed to fry. The ironic thing was that they weren't greasy at all, but they still required more oil than I would have imagined to get that nice, crispy texture that we all know and love.



I put the hubby in charge of the frying so that I could get some pictures.


Here's the first batch out of the skillet.

I heated up some gravy and served it on the side. It was delicious and a nice treat!

Question of the Day:
What's one food that you love but don't eat often?

Until next time!

In a Mexican Kind of Mood

Happy Friday!! We've finally made it to the end of the week!

I don't know what's gotten into me lately, but I've been in a Mexican mood this week. First, it was the chimichangas, and now it's bean burritos. I made these for my lunch this week and they are extremely filling and very tasty!

The recipe is courtesy of Weight Watchers and can be found here.


Cooking the veggies on the stove


All on the wrap


Rolled up and ready to eat

The husband and I reached an agreement about cooking on the weekends. Since he has so many house projects to do and doesn't enjoy cooking (while I am the EXACT opposite), we decided that I would do the cooking for the week on Sunday and he would work on the house. YAY for me! While I truly appreciate his help in the kitchen, I am very excited about having free time in the kitchen. It definitely gives me more time to try new recipes, which could only be a good thing!

Question of the Day:

What's your favorite ethnic cuisine?

For me, it's a toss up between Italian and Chinese!

Hope you all enjoy your weekend!

Until next time!

Why Yes, Yoga IS Yummy!

Yoga is something I've dabbled in, but never fully committed to. I can remember taking a yoga class at my local gym a few years ago, but when the instructor left, so did I. When I began my weight loss journey, I mainly did lots of cardio. Yoga was something that was put on the back burner until recently.

I've been visiting Polly's blog for quite some time. She seems likes such a positive, uplifting person, and I truly enjoy her outlook on life. For those of you that are familiar with her blog, you'll know that she teaches yoga. She also has a DVD for those of you who are interested in purchasing it. Until I can scrounge enough money for the DVD (the budget it tight these days), I will resort to her online collection of yoga videos. Each video is around ten minutes long. On Tuesday night, I tackled Yoga for Digestion and Yoga for Yummy Abs. I came away with the feeling that yoga is yummy, but it is also hard work!

I am so thankful for her videos. They are perfect for a quick, relaxing and refreshing workout. Thanks for all you do Polly!

Question of the Day:
What's your favorite form of exercise?

Until next time!

Chimichangas!

Can you believe it? Three consecutive blog posts-that HAS to be some kind of record for me. I don't know whether it's because I've been reading other blogs more often or what, but I've felt compelled to blog more.....and I kind of like it. This blog is providing an outlet for me, and it's been nice!

It's time for one of the new recipes I promised to you last week. I have to apologize in advance for the lack of appetizing pictures in this post. I need to get better at taking food pictures a.s.a.p. Ideas, anyone? Trust me though, it was very good!

I tend to be a mess in the kitchen when trying new recipes. It's like I've forgotten where my brain is! When I was making this recipe, I almost forgot to take a picture of it. If you notice, most of the pan is empty in the picture below. Oops!

Without further ado, I present to you Baked Turkey and Jack Cheese Chimichangas. If you follow that link, you will find the recipe and a much tastier-looking picture. I did make some changes. For starters, I can NEVER find reduced fat Monterey Jack cheese. I've looked everywhere with no luck. I ended up using part skim mozzarella cheese. I also didn't add any scallions, but did sneak in some onions.


The refried bean, turkey, onion and salsa mixture


All wrapped up and ready to go into the oven.

All in all, it was a very tasty meal. I topped mine with some fat free sour cream and salsa. It was a little bit spicy, but I'm a huge fan of spicy food, so it didn't bother me at all.

The husband asked if we could have these more often. I'd be a fool to say no!

Question of the day:
What's your favorite go-to recipe?

Mind Hunger vs. Body Hunger

I have been dabbling with intuitive eating. I think this method of approaching eating makes so much sense, provided I actively pay attention to my hunger and fullness cues. I had used intuitive eating in the past to defend my addiction to peanut butter and chocolate chips, but I'm ready for being honest this time around.

I am working towards getting rid of the "food guilt" I feel after over-indulging, and I think this will help. In my opinion, food guilt is not good for anyone! I'm learning that one cookie, one piece of cake, one anything is not going to throw my healthy choices down the tube, so long as it's in moderation.

What is most interesting to me about intuitive eating is discovering the difference between mind hunger and body hunger. I think I eat mostly because in my mind, I think I'm hungry. What I'm realizing is that I'm bored, stressed, or tired. When my body is hungry, my tummy growls, and I can tell that my body needs something in its system.

It's fascinating to see when I want to eat versus when I should eat. You know what else? Sometimes my body craves sweets, but most often, my body wants more natural foods. I think I'm going to like this journey.

Question of the Day:
What are your thoughts about intuitive eating? Have you ever tried it?

Until next time!

Using What's On Hand

Happy Monday!


On Sunday, the husband and I were invited to a last minute BBQ. The host asked if I could bring a dessert, and I was more than happy to comply. My go-to dessert has ALWAYS been Rice Krispie Treats with mini chocolate chips. Rice Krispie Treats require little effort but always taste delicious. Plus, they are a big hit every time.


Unfortunately, I was out of marshmellows. With all of the rain yesterday, there was no way in heck I was venturing outside. I decided to raid my pantry and make what I had on hand. Turns out I had all of the ingredients for Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies, with no recipe. I get leery of making cookies with pure whole wheat flour. I tried to make some over the Christmas holiday, but they ended up harder than I would have liked.


After a quick trip to Google, I found out that Betty Crocker had a recipe . I tweaked it a little by cutting out 1/2 stick of butter, substituting mini chocolate chips for regular and using Splenda instead of sugar. I also made them using a rounded teaspoon, not a rounded tablespoon.

I was very pleased with the results.
I thought this little guy looked cute on the baking sheet.
All plated up and ready to go.


I ended up switching from this plate to a bigger one. There was no way I was going to make it to the BBQ without dropping it, so I decided it had to go!


Many people at the party commented that they were delicious. I thought they weren't too bad myself, but I am partial to anything with chocolate in it!


Like I promised last week, I have two new recipes I tried out for this week. I'm pretty excited to share them with you. I hope they taste as good as they look!


Until next time!

Millions of Peaches, Peaches for Me

Last week I mentioned that I was on a stay-cation with the husband. We took many day trips to round out the week. One of the most memorable (besides the Billy Joel/Elton John concert) was a trip to Linvilla Orchards. The husband and I typically go there during October to pick out our favorite pumpkin, but we usually stay away during the summer. I can remember participating in a "pick your own" fruit/veggies when I was little, so when the opportunity presented itself, I knew I'd be on board. Thankfully, the husband was too!
The first foods we picked were peppers, zucchini and yellow squash. I couldn't believe how prickly some of the plants were!

The husband picking a green pepper

The zucchini!
After about 15-20 minutes of walking the fields, we decided to hop on a hayride to pick some peaches. It's the husband's favorite fruit, so I knew we hit the jackpot when we saw tons of trees that looked like this.




Of course I had to get a shot of me picking a peach.

All in all, it was a fantastic and fun day. There's something about "pick your own" that's so enjoyable. I love fresh fruits and veggies, and this was a great opportunity to see exactly where they were coming from. I love local farms! If you are looking for something to do and know of a farm where they have "pick your own", you should definitely try it out!


This is what we came home with. Check out the size of those peppers-they are huge!

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week. I've got some new recipes that I'm trying for dinner and lunch next week. I can't wait to share them with you!

Just for good measure, I figured I'd throw in a picture from the Elton John/Billy Joel conert.



Until next time!

Banana Soft Serve

Hello everyone!


Last week I was on a staycation. Sorry for being MIA. Even though I got to relax with the husband and take some really great day trips, I still had to keep up with my class work, and thus, I had no time to blog.
While I was away, I made this amazing concoction that really did change my life.
I froze this little guy.....
and turned him into this amazing thing
Banana soft serve.
Since I don't have a food processor, I used my Oster Blender, and it worked just fine. I couldn't believe that this was just a banana. It was delicious!
I hope you are all enjoying your day. It's so sunny and beautiful. I wish I wasn't stuck here at work!
Until next time!
