Some of my Favorites

Lately there have been some foods, snacks or desserts that I have just loved and am found to be eating them over and over again because, not only are they easy, but healthy. I wanted to share some with you that I can't get enough of and hopefully you enjoy them as much as I do.

Spaghetti Squash
-cut in half, poke holes in the top with fork, put in oven for 30-40 mins. serve with butter and Parmesan cheese and s&p. I can't even tell you how much this has saved me from eating too many carbs such as pasta or rice as a side dish.

Warm Choco
-just one cup of skim milk with 2 tbsp. of Nestle's Fat Free Choco. Only 4 grams of carbs for every 2 tbsp. (i sometimes even use this as a snack, but in most cases when I'm having a sweet tooth-cures it every time)

-activia yogurt with 1/3 c. of raw oatmeal, and sometimes I add about 3-4 cut up almonds.

Whole Wheat
-I find myself eating this probably more than I should. One piece of Whole Wheat bread with peanut butter and half of a cut up banana all on the slice.

Herbal Tea
-Now that the weather is changing, whenever your craving something hot to drink, I highly recommend some Pomegranate Pizzaz Herbal Tea.

Spinach and Mushrooms
-Whenever I can't think of a side dish to go with my dinner, or of a way to get my vegetables into my day, I always without fail resort to putting Spinach into a pan with Olive Oil and cut up mushrooms and just let it simmer. I always put Oregano and Parsley with S&P.

Fruit and Cottege Cheese
-I count this one as a dessert because it's just as good. One cup of Cottege Cheese with Yogurt (non fat), cut up almonds and your pick of fruit. I usually use blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries (frozen bags) or banana's. Always satisfies me every time!
