The smoothie idea this week went really well. I actually feel like I have a bit more energy. Probably from the vitamins & stuff. I have been adding Mila into them. If you need a refresher on Mila, read this. All the fiber I have been consuming, even in liquid form & my belly is one hot mess. I think that means I need to drink more water. I do drink it all day long, but I guess it isn't enough.
I went to the store today to get some more smoothie supplies & a couple other ingredients for a little recipe I found on Pinterest. Are you familiar with Pinterest? It's my new addiction. I love it. You can find all sorts of things on there. I happened to find some delicious recipes, healthy & unhealthy alike. If you'd like to follow me on Pinterest, you can get me here.
Have I ever mentioned my love for Quinoa? I just adore it. I'm going to say that it will be an acquired taste for some. I happen to like it a lot. I also happen to have posted one, if not two quinoa recipes. If you need a refresher or would like to know what quinoa is read this. I haven't tried any sweet quinoa recipes, only savory. Today, on Pinterest I ran across this recipe for Cheesy Quinoa Bites.
I was intrigued. I had mostly everything & the ingredients I needed were but mere pennies!!! Go me! I didn't want to spare the expense of buying Parmesan cheese, plus I didn't want too much salt. So I got Cabot Extra SuperDeeDuper Sharp white cheddar cheese. I'm sure that isn't the exact name, but it is Cabot brand. I substituted that instead. So I whipped me up a batch & yes, I do have a mini muffin pan!!! I made sure to have a tester bite when they came out of the oven. They needed salt. Go figure. I also tried them with a dash of fat free ranch dressing & a dash of hot sauce. The hot sauce was perfect & saves some calories too. So I packed some up with some liberal dashes of hot sauce. Score 2 points for me!!
I'm still looking for part time work. I'm very stressed over it. At least I attempting to make better food choices, right? That's a good thing :)
Hopefully you will check me out on Pinterest & maybe you will try the recipe I suggested or something else I've posted!
