Mini grocery stop- TIP: purchase produce in smaller portions!

image

Lately I’ve been noticing that I don’t seem to be eating all of the fruit and veggies that I purchase before they go bad.

So, to switch things up (and save a bit of money since I’m on a college girl budget) last week I didn’t buy as much produce as I usually would.

My plan totally worked, I actually ran out of fruit and veggies early- and not even a single strawberry went to waste!

The downside however, is I had to make another mini-trip to the store today to stock up on what I ran out of.

I secretly love grocery shopping so I didn’t mind 🙂

Try this out guys! Save money by buying produce in smaller portions.

Raspberry Waffle Protein Mini-Breakfast

20130724_214013

In a mad dash out the door this morning on the way to my hair appointment, I threw together this delicious waffle raspberry combo! I was so thankful that I made extra protein waffles last week and froze them!

Having some extra pre-prepared meals on hand definitely comes in handy with a busy schedule. If it wasn’t for my excess of protein waffles, I would have only had a fruit smoothie for breakfast.

My metabolism is too high to survive off of a fruit smoothie for more then a couple hours, so this protein waffle was really a life saver!

Lately I’ve gotten myself into a fabulous flatbread frenzy! After tasting my first flatbread a few weeks ago, I just can’t seem to get enough of them. I LOVE letting my healthy creative mind wonder. Coming up with flatbread toppings is almost as fun as eating the flatbread… almost.

I decided to experiment with spices this week. Oregano, black pepper, Cayenne Pepper and garlic powder seemed like a delicious place to start.

Those spices balanced out with grilled Sun-dried tomatoes, Red peppers, Zucchini slices, garlic coves and Mozzarella cheese ended up being the absolute perfect masterpiece.

3 Ingredient High-Protein Hazelnut Crepes!

One of the reasons I LOVE these crepes, is because they’re PACKED with protein and only have 3 ingredients. I love knowing exactly what I’m putting into my body, so making my own breakfast is always a joy. No artificial sweeteners or preservatives in here, that’s for sure 🙂

Classy Cornbread

I’m calling this beauty “classy cornbread” because of the adorable pink flowers I tossed in. My boyfriend Bryan picked them for me, I just couldn’t resist 🙂

Plus, I’m really into food-ography lately so it was perfect!

Seriously, so delicious! Bryan and I made cornbread for my best friend and I’s “Southern Style Hangout” yesterday. It was a big hit, and an awesome snack.

How To Make a Green Smoothie! Vegetarians, this is especially for you :)

green

I really need to start making more green smoothies!

I’ve got the morning fruit smoothie routine down to a science, but I’m having a hard time getting some green veggies in there. Definitely going to use this on this morning’s smoothie. Being a life-long vegetarian, I need all the green veggies I can get.

Not to mention, I just got some AWESOME green tea lemonade from a health food store by my house that I can’t WAIT to try. It’ll be a perfect addition to a green smoothie.

I’ll post the recipe that I come up with later today 🙂
