This morning I had this delicious breakfast:
Fall 2009 008

Almond butter and about a teaspoon of honey mixed in it.  All on a 100 calorie Arnold whole wheat sandwich thin.  They are a new try for me and they get an A+.  So far, they are awesome toasted and the almond butter +honey just made them AMAZINNNNG!

Then I had a long day at work.  Then I came home and made this quick dinner.  I found it on the hungry-girl website Hungry Girl and she made this “Frito Burrito.”  I had the ingredients so I gave it a shot.

Here is how mine went down:
One tortilla (TJ’s whole wheat)

1/3 cup veggie chili (I used Health Valley from Whole Foods-it has less sodium)

2 tablespoons TJ’s light mexican blend cheese

8 TJ’s organic corn chips

Heat tortilla in microwave for 10 seconds, then add chili (I preheated my chili per can directions), cheese and fritos.  Either fold into a wrap or burrito. I didn’t want to crush the fritos so I made a wrap.  After folding, heat in the microwave for 30 seconds.

Then I got this awesome package in the mail today!  The kind people at Food Should Taste Good sent me samples (okay, full size bags) of natural tortilla chips.  I received Lime, Chocolate, Yellow Corn, and Potato and Chive.  Can’t wait to review these!

Happy Halloween everyone!   With today being  Halloween and my love for everything pumpkin, I decided to make a pumpkin smoothie.

The recipe:

1 1/4 cup unsweetened TJ’s soymilk

1/4 cup organic canned pumpkin (do not use pumpkin pie filling)

1 container (6oz) of Stonyfield Pumpkin Pie yogurt

 (I had one left and I figured it would taste better mixed with other things)

1 tablespoon agave nectar

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

a splash (maybe a tablespoon?) of fat free vanilla coffee creamer

4-5 icecubes

It is very very pumpkin-y.  Which I love.  The husband wasn’t a fan, but that is just because  he is jealous of pumpkin and I’s relationship 😉
