roasted veggies...

My favorite topping on salads is roasted veggies. Every Sunday I go to the local farmers market and buy a bunch of veggies and roast them. Then I stick them in the fridge and top on my salads...

strawberry pancakes (low carb!)

2 ingredients (well, minus the toppings)

- one scoop protein powder (I used strawberry dymatize)
- 3/4 cup egg beaters

Directions: blend and cook in pan like pancakes.

Makes a ton of them!

I topped mine with cinnamon and sugar free maple syrup.

Chocolate oatmeal and yogurt

This is the easiest "recipe." Basically I added in hershey's cocoa powder to yogurt and oatmeal to make it more chocolate.

For chocolate yogurt, mix in splenda and hershey's unsweetened cocoa powder.

I cooked the oatmeal as I normally do and then mixed in the cocoa powder.

Turkey and FF Cheese Omelette

What to do with leftovers?

Make a turkey and fat free cheese omelette!

- one cup egg whites
- 2 slices fat free cheese
- turkey

Directions: Cook egg whites in pan. One cooked on one side, add in turkey and pieces of cheese. Flip. One cooked, put on a plate and top with other slice of cheese.

Back again....

Hi Guys,
I am back again... after another short blogging break. Things have been busy with work. I felt like I have been living out of a suitcase the past 4 months. My job has been going great, I am finally happy again... woo hoo :)

These days I have been eating out of convenience... I have been eating a lot more low fat, higher carb and protein... and I miss my peanut butter!

Turkey and fat free cheese on 100 calorie bagel thins (I love these!)

Still obsessed with rice cakes topped with "protein spread..." (Protein powder mixed with a bit of water)

My new favorite on the go snack.... plain greek yogurt mixed with oatmeal, cinnamon and splenda.

Hopefully, things die down so I can continue blogging... because I missed it :)
