Sunday Pamper: Food Edition

Hey guys,

So I woke up today with a hangover, and I didn’t even drink last night. I don’t know if this happens to other people, but every once in a while i’ll feel really crappy due to poor eating habits. I have a serious sweet tooth, and I also hate cooking. If I don’t go to Terry’s for dinner I usually end up eating out or eating something bad.

After sleeping most of the morning, I decided I should go to the grocery store and stock up on some healthier options. I also decided to set some goals: cut down on products with added sugar, eat more veggies, drink more water. I went to Fresh Market and Publix, and this is what i picked up:

Kefir is really yummy and tastes very similar to yogurt. It contains probiotics which are good for digestive health. It does have more added sugar than I wanted, but I haven’t been able to find a plain one. This one is a smoothie consistency, so you can mix it with berries or put it over cereal/granola.

Suzie’s Think Healthy Thin Cakes – These are really yummy with almond butter on them. They have a good crunch and 2 or 3 are the perfect snack size.

I’ve always been scared of quinoa because it seemed really difficult to make. This was my first time making it, and it ended up being soooo easy. Overall it’s a lot like rice in taste and consistency. I added yellow squash, edamame, and onions.

I probably drink way too much tea, but I just can’t stop. This one is great for nighttime because it’s caffeine free, and it has a really fresh/soothing flavor.  I find that tea is a good replacement for dessert or a late night snack. It’s sweet even without adding sugar.
