Day with Mom!

Hey everyone!

So, as you can see I bought a new theme! This one is called Pretty Young Thing and I absolutely love it because its super girly and fun!

Anyways, I woke up this morning from the most awful sleep I’ve had in a long time. The winds were so strong last night that they were shaking my balcony doors constantly! I hardly got any sleep! Hopefully the winds will be tamer tonight!


On the bright side, Alana made a delicious breakfast this morning. In the mix? All of my favorite things!

Oats with dried fruit (cherries, raisins, and apricots), cinnamon, milk, a touch of brown sugar, a chopped apple,and toasted pecans! What better way to start off the day? 🙂

After breakfast, I showered and got ready to go shopping with my mom. We went to a new store that opened while I was at school and then we stopped at Trader Joe’s to buy some cookie butter that Allie raves about!

We were disappointed to hear that they were all out for a month! 😦

I’m checking 2 other locations tomorrow! HA!


We got home and we were all starving so I quickly made my homemade soup! So healthy and perfect for the cold weather!

Tofu Shirataki Vegetable Soup

makes 5 servings


  • 2 bags of Tofu Shirataki Noodles
  • 4 cups of low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 2 large carrots
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1/2 cup of sliced mushrooms
  • pepper for taste
  • cooked chicken or turkey cut into chunks


  1. Drain the noodles and set aside to dry.
  2. Bring chicken broth to a boil.
  3. Add chopped veggies and let cook for about 5 minutes.
  4. Add in the noodles and chicken or turkey meat.
  5. Season with pepper to taste and serve!

Sadly, I didn’t get to fit in any exercise today but I’m glad I’ve been exercising more than I did while I was at school!

I’m off to see my best friend and catch up on college life! We’re going out to Indian later, so I’ll be back with another post 🙂

But until then, here are some eats from the past few days that you may enjoy.

Failed attempt at a salad from AEPhi. But still satisfying!

In the mix: romaine lettuce, beets, broccoli, mushrooms, carrots, green beans, dried fruit, cashews, feta, and parmesan cheese.

Nana’s Swedish Meatballs over whole wheat Ezekiel Sprouted Grain Pasta. Sprinkled with parmesan and shredded cheddar!

Turkey, cheese, lettuce, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and whole grain mustard spread on squaw bread! DELISHHHH!

And in case anyone is wondering about my Recipe Page, I’m working on it! I promise!

See you all tonight with a dinner post! xo




Homemade Turkey Chili + leftovers for lunch!

Okay… last night’s dinner was absolutely DELICIOUS.

Homemade Turkey Chili with cornbread muffins and broccoli.

Chili + cornbread = LOVE.

Alana & I made it ourselves! Twins have special powers in the kitchen 🙂

It was so good that I had to have the leftovers for lunch today.


I tossed the chili and noodles together in pan, and it was just like chili mac! (I sprinkled some cheddar cheese on top as well)

I don’t know if you all have tried House Foods Tofu Shirataki Noodles, but they are a great alternative to regular pasta because they only have 20 calories per serving! I definitely like my whole wheat pasta better, but these are good too.

They come in a package with lime water and smell a little strange, but you can’t beat pasta for 20 calories!

The texture is a little different, but just TRY them, and trust me, they’ll grow on you.

Plus, they’re low-carb, gluten-free, and vegan!


Pure YUM.

After lunch, I went out to do some more shopping since I didn’t buy anything last time!

I got a tie dye blouse, a lace skirt, and a sparkly pink notebook. Everything I bought was 50% off! YES!


I got home from shopping and found that my dad cooked tonight!

Grilled kabobs with chicken, red peppers, pineapple  and mushrooms 🙂

I also had some white jasmine rice on the side. This is weird, I know, but I love my rice sprinkled with cumin! It’s definitely one of my favorite spices.

After dinner, I watched a new series on Food Network called Tough Cookies. CAUTION TO ANYONE WHO LIKES COOKIES EVEN A LITTLE BIT: Your mouth will be watering as you watch this show!

I wanted some dessert so I grabbed a chocolate pudding from the fridge and enjoyed it along with a few of Barbara’s Snackimals animal cookies.

The snickerdoodle flavor is my fave 🙂

Now I’m off to watch Teen Mom with Alana!  Chili Recipe coming soon!
