Mama Mia!

Well, I had a whole post yesterday, but being the genius that I am, I didn’t save it before I tried to publish it and my sucky internet froze up whilst I was trying to publish and I lost the whole post!  I’ll try to recap real quick- it won’t be as good as the post I lost, but I’ll give it a go.

I’ll just post pictures and give comments on the pics instead of commentating the whole day.

A quick trip to the grocery…

Did you know that Dr Kracker’s are made right here in Dallas?!  I had no idea!  I don’t usually buy them because they are really expensive, but when I found that out I had to get some.  The pumpkin seed cheddar doesn’t disappoint!  Very tasty!  And pretty filling for a kracker!  I’m going to have to arrange a visit of some sort since they’re right here next to me!

I gave the amazing grass another go (last time I tried it, it upset my tummy.  I got a sample pack again to try it again and it was all good this time so I went back to get a tub of it.)  The chocolate flavor is so good!  I mix it with vanilla almond milk and it tastes just like chocolate milk, not “green” at all.




This was my last Ez 4:9 tortilla. Crying

In my quesadilla was black beans, cheddar, onions, bell pepper.  Toppins included salsa, big dollop of greek yogurt, and jalapenos!  SOOOO good and I just LOVE how filling those Ez 4:9 tortillas are!


This was supposed to be dessert, but it was NOT BUENO!  I only had about 3 bites and I chunked it.  This is the only SO Delicious product I’ve ever tried that I didn’t like.  Oh well, there was bound to be something, lol.


Consumed this on my way to workout with my trainer.  I haven’t worked out like that in weeks, my arms are so sore I can barely lift them!



When I got home from the gym it was PIZZA TIME!  I think this was the best one to date!!

I used this recipe for the dough (it’s the only one I use now.  I’ve searched the world over for a great healthy pizza crust recipe and this is it!  So hearty, but light at the same time, and crispy too!)

Toppings included mozzarella, turkey pepperoni, caramelized onions, and bell peppers. YUM!



I also made a great salad!  With toasted almonds, dried cranberries, feta, and light raspberry vinaigrette!

My plate!




While the pizza dough was rising, I worked on some blueberry muffins.  I’ve been meaning to make these for days and I finally got around to it.  Here’s the recipe.  I get so many great recipes and ideas from this blog, it’s my favorite!  Mine weren’t as pretty as hers, but they are MIGHTY tasty! Mine turned out a little darker because I used organic sucanat instead of cane sugar, and sucanat is about the same color as brown sugar.  They still tasted fabulous though.  Next time I might try it with some regular old cane sugar.  I don’t usually keep it in the house though…





dang quesadilla

well, my plans today aren’t going quite according to schedule, but at least I’m getting some stuff done!  I missed spin class this morning because I overslept- oops!  Then I remembered that I had an appt with my trainer tonight so I figured it was okay, then my trainer texted me to let me know that she was going to have to reschedule.  Blast!  I’ve got so much to do now, that I don’t know when or if I’ll be able to fit anything in!

Here’s what’s on my todo list today…

  • load and unload dishwasher
  • sweep and mop kitchen
  • vacuum living room and hallway
  • drag out the carpet cleaner and clean LR carpet and rug in kitchen
  • blog
  • grocery store run
  • make picnic items for concert at the gardens tomorrow
  • clean up kitchen after this cooking/baking marathon (I’m a messy cook!)
  • make bed
  • LAUNDRY  (why does this always get pushed to the back of the list?!)

When I got up for breakfast I was feeling yogurty!

  • about 1/2 cup-ish greek yogurt
  • drizzle of agave nectar
  • couple of handfuls Kashi Honey Sunshine cereal
  • tiny sprinkle of mymix granola
  • big handful of strawberries
  • coffee!



Then I did some web searching for a place for us to stay when we trek to New Orleans next month.  I think I found a place, I’m pretty psyched!  Then onto chores, which I’m still working on.

Then lunch time!

this is just my favorite thing ever to make and it is SO insanely filling!  It’s almost 3:00 now and I’m STILL full!

Here’s what was going on with my little quesadilla today…

  • ez 4:9 tortilla
  • black beans (bout 1/2 cup)
  • sprinkle of sharp cheddar
  • baby sweet peppers


These little peppers are fab!  They taste just like bell peppers except a bit of a sweeter taste.

Then I cooked up my dang quesadilla and topped it with some chopped yellow cherry tomatoes and some red onion.  Then a big spoonful of salsa and greek yogurt on the side!



I’ve gotten to where I just buy a giganto tub of greek yogurt at Costco once a month and use it not only as yogurt but also as a substitute for sour cream.  It doesn’t make sense for me to buy sour cream when I don’t really use it that often and greek yogurt tastes just like sour cream to me. (which is probably why I have to sweeten it with some agave if I’m going to eat it plain.  Me no likey plain greek yogurt!).

Now I’m just procrastinating- back to chores!!
