Nothing Creative to Write Here.

First, a little housekeeping:

Gina, the Fitnessista, is doing a great giveaway!  You should check it out!!

Next on the agenda…food, glorious food!

Here is a collage of eats from the past few days:




Amazing cranberry apple butter oats from yesterday with a few tweaks:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • pinch of sea salt
  • dash of vanilla extract
  • craisins (phenom.)
  • mashed banana
  • cranberry apple butter
  • topped with almond butter

Mastered.  Perfection!


I believe this was a yogurt bowl with vanilla chobani, pumpkin flax granola, H2H and PB Puffins.


Truth be told, I have no idea what this mix was.  It was some oats, raisins, probably more of the usual suspects and then topped with unsweetened applesauce.


This was a tasty bowl that began the cranberry apple butter revolution. 

  • 1/3 cup oatbran
  • 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • pumpkin pie spice
  • vanilla
  • mashed banana

Topped with plain Chobani and cranberry apple butter


A simple bowl of PB puffins and almond milk.


…have included a LOT of this:


SOUP!  I’m obsessed this fall.  This is my homemade pasta e fagioli from the other night.  Delish.


Vegan black bean soup from TJ’s.  DELISH!

Copy of grapefruit

Side of grapefruit.


Hummus and veggies in a whole wheat pita


with an apple


and some pretzels.


I only have two photographed.  I was eating out a lot while Hubbers was away.


Spinach, chicken, mushroom quesadillas were on the menu last night.  I LOVE these.  You can find the recipe here.  I saw them on “Healthy Appetite” with Ellie Krieger on FoodNetwork a year or so ago and have made them several times.  They never disappoint.


I also had Panera the other night after picking Hubbers up from the airport.  I had a classic cafe salad and garden vegetable soup with whole grain baguette on the side.


 hugeappleappleinsideThis weekend, I had a “Colossal” Honey crisp apple.  It took me a good 15 minutes to eat.  Dang.

Had to try that one right away.  The verdict?  Out of this world!!

P1020845 P1020846 We all know how this one turned out!



I’m back on the bandwagon!  I went to a hot yoga class on Monday.  It rocked my socks (or lack thereof) off!  I sweat like a beast and definitely felt it the next day.  I can’t wait to go back!

I ran a 5K on the treadmill on Tuesday:  27:30.

I ran 2.0 miles Wednesday:  18:30.

I am really missing the Nike+.  I need a new one ASAP!!

Make it a great Thursday!  The weekend’s almost here!
