I’ve been having a BLAST with my self-initiated #DailyYogurt challenge. Every day I try to come up with a fun tasty way to top plain old yogurt using whatever I have in the house. It’s been teaching to me think beyond the grab-able processed snack and find more whole options when I’m hungry.
I made the switch from flavored yogurt cups to tubs of non-fat plain yogurt slowly over the past few years and I LOVE it. Read the rest of this post »»
I was rummaging through the fridge looking for something to eat for lunch when I came across the end of my Chinese 5 Spice Pork Loin. At first was thinking of just cubing it to top a salad, but I just wasn’t in the mood for a salad. I wanted something else. Something ‘sandwichy.’

I’ll be preaching it to my dying day: Food that’s fun, takes just a little time to prep, and look pretty is always more satisfying. Always!I made this as a quick snack today and posted it on Instagram. (I try to keep an accurate food journal there although not everything makes it when my battery dies or I forget my phone.)
