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.
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!

I heard this quote and thought it was SO appropriate for my health blog!
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 🙂
What can I say, I’ve created the PERFECT appetizer!
This slightly spicy, low-cal dish is great for parties, lunches or just a quick snack on a summer day. I had a bunch of squashes and zucchini left over from our “southern party” last weekend, so I threw them together and created Grilled Zucchini and Summer Squash Stacks!
To put a fun little spin on it, I sauteed the veggies in Balsamic Vinaigrette instead of oil and it came out GREAT.
Enjoy this fabulous low-cal snack!
This delicious mouthful of healthy Fitspiration will absolutely take your breath away. I brought this baby to a party this weekend and all my friends LOVED it!
It’s easy, healthy and BEAUTIFUL (if I do say so myself… and I do!)
Did I mention it was cheap too? My fridge is almost always filled with fruit (since I make fruit smoothies every morning), so I used all the left-over fruits I had in there, and created this flowerful beauty!
My boyfriend brought in some lovely flowers from my front garden, so I threw those in for some extra color too.
I really love that this is such an impressive looking salad that took such little effort to throw together for a party. Keep it in mind for your next hang out!
P.s Oh my gosh you guys, aren’t my food-ography pictures getting so much better??!? I’ve been practicing with different lightning techniques with my camera and it’s been making SUCH a big difference.
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.
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 🙂
This incredible italian style lunch began with and INCREDIBLE tomato pesto I found at the farmers market last weekend.
A precious little old Italian man had his own booth set up, and I spent a good 20 mins talking to him about all the natural ingredients in his various flavors of pestos.
After trying 2 (more like 7) differeny flavors on his sample french bread slices, I fell passionately in love with his fresh tomato basil pesto. I couldn’t wait to get home to slap some of it on a sandwich!
Thus, the creation of this Italian style San Diego lunch 🙂
I loved it cold, with a bowl of my delicious tomato-basil soup. (See my tomato basil soup post for the recipe)
Perfect lunch to perk up a gloomy day!
