I was at school today and needed a healthy snack that wasn’t going to cost me an arm and a leg. I found these Cinnamon Tortilla Chips and they were really good. I really liked them. They are put out by Food that Should Taste Good. I recommend that you pick up a bag if you see them!
This is what I dug in to the other night for dinner. There is spinach, carrots, bell peppers, almonds, cucumber, mushrooms and tomatoes. I love salads! It is a great way to get vegetables in for the day. If you are looking for ways to add vegetables in to your diet or more of them have a salad with lunch and/or dinner.
And for dessert I had some dates with cream cheese and walnuts!! OH SO GOOD!
Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would be buying parsnips AND eating them.
Never had a parsnip growing up, but recently I had a cooking class and we made parsnips. I was brave and tried it and guess what? I liked it! This must be a sure sign of getting old! hehehe
Needless to say I found parsnips at Trader Joes and was brave (again) to buy them. I had them the other night and are super easy to make….you cut them up and steam them. To top them off I added some butter and salt. They sort of resemble the taste of a carrot, but don’t… sort of hard to explain what they taste like, but I think if you like carrots you will like parsnips. I have a feeling this is going to be the year I try a bunch of new foods! 🙂
I also thought the bag was great. It states that it is biodegradable. How awesome is that!?
Here are a few pictures:
I love tea and for Christmas I got a mini tea pot where I can brew tea leaves. I love it! Can’t start the day with out it!
I made a cream cheese wrap with spinach, mushrooms and salsa on a Trader Joe’s whole wheat tortilla. I have to say the salsa total made the wrap. It is nice to try new a combination for lunch instead of the same old boring sandwich. Hopefully I have inspired you to create your own wrap 🙂
Ever try the stuff they are making at Trader Joe’s? Well the other day I walked in there and they were making polenta pizza. I had never had polenta until the other day. The polenta pizza consisted of polenta (obviously), bruschetta and white kidney beans. I have to say it was SO good I bought all the stuff to make it myself!
Makes for a great appetizer or in my case a meal 🙂
