Good ol' favorites.

I'm in the middle of Biggest Loser, so I'm gonna just bust this out as quick as I can!


Leftover sweet/spicy chicken tacos w/ guacamole and strawberries on the side.


Some chocolate stick wafer thing with Irish cream in the middle. My boss gave it to me yesterday, but I saved it for today since I knew my time of the month was around the corner and my sweet tooth would be in full effect. It was alright. Light quick chocolate fix.

Afternoon snack:

Some berry-flavored Amazing Grass Green Superfood mixed with water.

1/4 cup fat-free cottage cheese warmed with 2 tsp. of cinnamon-vanilla sunflower butter. Sounds weird I know, but it was good and definitely hit the spot when I started to hit that afternoon wall. Nice balance of protein and healthy fats, thanks to the added flax and hemp seeds in the sunflower butter.


I've been talking about making an old fashioned tuna casserole for about a month now and tonight, I finally busted it out!

Pretty simple.
  • 4 servings of cooked No Yolks noodles
  • 2 cans of chunk light tuna
  • 1 can of 98% fat-free cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 bag of frozen mixed veggies 
I mixed the tuna with the soup in a bowl and added about 1/4 can of water. Seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic & onion powder, grated parmesan cheese and parsley flakes.

In a big glass baking dish, I stirred together the noodles, tuna/soup mixture and mixed veggies (cooked the veggies separately in the microwave).

I then sprinkled on about 2 tbsp. of plain bread crumbs and a little more onion powder. Baked in the oven at about 375 for 10 minutes or so, until I noticed a little crisp on some of the noodles on top.

Cooked some broccoli with a little light butter and served on the side. Dee-lish! Doug was starving by the time it was done and I was definitely in the mood for some warm comfort food, so this hit the spot. Leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

Jello snack with some Reddi-Whip on top. I just wanted something light and sweet.

And not pictured are 2 more teaspoons of sunflower butter. That's all for tonight!

Those strawberries look so fresh and delish. I need to seek some out.

I haven't had tuna noodle casserole in years. It's such a great comfort food.

It IS a great comfort food. And this one was so easy to make too!
