I have made this for myself as an evening sweet treat for weeks now!
It started out as a “microwave cobbler in a mug,” but when I broke the handle off my microwave and could no longer open it, I transitioned over to my oven.
I removed as much sugar as I could, so this treat is only 315 calories!

Not gonna lie: Shakeology tastes kind of nasty at first sip.
But then again, most shake-like supplements taste that way to me.
But you find ways to doctor the mix to make it tastier. Continue reading “Shakeology review and recipe”
This came about from an original 21 Day Fix-approved recipe for Eggroll in a Bowl.
I accidentally bought broccoli slaw instead of coleslaw mix the first time I made it, and I ended up liking it so much, I decided to use broccoli slaw from then on!
It’s my go-to warm bowl of protein and veggies. I make a batch for the week and then I’m good to go.

I love steel cut oatmeal anyway, so this wasn’t much of a challenge…
My cholesterol levels are starting to creep up, and I wondered why.
I went on an oatmeal wave a few years back, when my cholesterol levels were at their lowest, so I think it’s time to get back on it again.
It’s really easy to make a batch on Sunday that you can use through the week!

Healthy microwave popcorn is the best thing I can eat when I’m craving crunchy and salty. It’s got fiber, good fats from olive oil, and low-sodium salty goodness from Flavor God Everything Seasoning.
I use my Nordic Ware Microwave Popcorn Popper and good ol’ Orville Redenbacher to make a bowl that’s fast, easy, and chemical free.
Don’t ever buy those microwave popcorn bags again!

A well made breakfast burrito is one of the great pleasures of life.
And yet, the older I get, the harder it is to incorporate these little beauties into a healthy diet.
Especially since I track everything I eat with MyFitnessPal, and am keenly aware of where every calorie comes from. Six days out of seven, I log 1,300 to 1,600 calories (depending how much I exercise that day).
Then every Sunday, I enjoy myself one glorious CHEAT DAY.
I started to permit myself breakfast burritos only on cheat days. Because damn, these are usually calorie monstrosities, easily tipping the counter at over 500 calories.
(Omigod, I remember the old breakfast burritos I used to eat, at Burrito Factory in San Jose, bursting at the seams with refried beans, potatoes, fatty bacon, and sour cream. I would estimate that those burritos were easily over 800 calories. Maybe even 1,000!)
Here’s a lighter version, when you only need a little taste, without being weighed down by the whole
