Yummy Things Day :)

So we’ve all heard/had yogurt, granola, and fruit. I mean, McDonald’s made that famous. But check out my new treat that is not only nutritious (with some splurges) but DELICIOUS!!! It’s certainly more calories than a snack, so make it a mini-meal (rounded out with leftover roasted veggies on the side). Strange combo, I know. But so so good!

 

– 5.3 oz Dannon plain Greek non-fat yogurt (80 cal)

– 2 Tbs. sweetened coconut flakes (70 cal)

– 1/4 C Heartland Granola cereal (120 cal)

– 1/2 oz ghiradelli dark chocolate chips (80 cal)

Total: 350   (YUMMM!!!!!)

 

 

 

Next in line… corn, pepper, and black bean salad. This recipe is modified from The New American Plate cookbook. In my quest for improving my nutrient-rich diet, this cookbook is perfect. It’s totally focused on a plant-based (with meat on the side) diet very high in vitamins and minerals. Check out this dinner! (this picture seriously doesn’t do it justice)

This picture doesn't do it justice...Recipe:

bag of frozen corn, thawed

can of black beans, drained and rinsed

1-2 green peppers, diced

1/2 C quinoa dry (place in saucepan with 1 C water. bring to boil. reduce heat to medium and cover. cook for 13 minutes.)

pico de gallo (or other salsa)

1/2 rotisserie chicken

salt and pepper to taste

1/4 C cilantro, chopped

Mix in a bowl. Serve with tostitos baked scoops and sprinkle some low-fat cheese on top. Serve either hot or cold. Enjoy!!!

 

Happy eating!

  1. Mmmm, love these!! Especially the salad. I love quinoa and maybe my kids would go for it in this (rather than the yummy breakfasts I make with it, ah well). Thanks!!
