So I talked a bit in my oatmeal blog about getting obsessed with pumpkin pie oatmeal to the point where now I’ll consider eating it and think “ugh, not again!” I try not to just eat the same thing every day, but I tend to find a meal combin... Read more
Peanut Butter and Jam Oatmeal
Friday, February 12, 2010      8 comments

I am pretty new to eating oatmeal in general. I always hated how "soggy" it was. But I discovered that I just have to make sure I don't add too much liquid and then I can make it nice and chewy. My favorite topping for the longest time was ca... Read more
Pizza - I tried Amy's Spinach Pizza

I love pizza. No seriously, I LOVE pizza. I have tried various “diet” pizzas, but the list of ingredients is longer than some short stories! So I tried an all-natural pizza for dinner tonight and was thoroughly impressed. I bought an Amy... Read more

I have been trying out different wraps and I picked up these Kangaroo Pita Pockets. While not completely clean they have only one preservative instead of the 10+ that are in my favorite flatbread. I had one for lunch yesterday and I had it... Read more
Quinoa
Monday, February 08, 2010      3 comments

Quinoa! Ever since trying the double broccoli quinoa* at New Seasons, Aubrey and I have made it a fixture in our kitchen. It is just SO good! Although this last time we had it, I think we made it too far in advance. The first time we made it... Read more
Sparkiversary

Three years ago today, I joined this crazy little website called Sparkpeople. I set out with a general resolution to "lose weight", and I was amazed at how quickly it came off at first. I learned that I was eating twice, (sometimes three t... Read more

This weekend at New Seasons they had various dips, chips, and other Super Bowl type snacks to taste. I love the tastings there because I can try new things without having to DO anything! I tried carrot juice today. It tastes like it sounds it wi... Read more

With such a horrible morning I didn't have high hopes for today. But then Aubrey and I decided to take a trek out and about and walked all over the mall after FINALLY trying the raw food at Blossoming Lotus. We got a live wrap and a live fa... Read more
Pictures of Food/Experiments
Wednesday, February 03, 2010      8 comments

I decided to take some pictures of some of my experiments. We finally had black bean/veggie burger success! A burger press really helped, as well as chilling them to give them time to take shape. And no burning it this time! ... Read more
Cooking at Home
Thursday, January 21, 2010      8 comments

My husband (Aubrey) and I very rarely go out to eat anymore. It just tastes so much better at home and I know exactly what I'm eating. That is, except for those random things in my condiments and store-bought sauces : soy lechiten, modified... Read more

Feeling Rather Annoyed
Friday, July 24, 2009      5 comments

So while I've still been enjoying my strength training, I had been trying to lose some more of this fat. I got back down to my lowest weight ever of 147. Still a few pounds into the "overweight" range. When I was concentrating more on my ... Read more

Sunday, May 24, 2009      3 comments

So I haven't typed anything in a really long time. I'm not always good about typing up what's new in my life! But we went to the beach this weekend and I was so glad with how much fun we had! My husband and I stayed in an awesome room. R... Read more
