WIAW [Healthified Eats]

06/29/2011 at 8:08 am 74 comments

Hi loves! Ok so how crazy is it that Friday makes the first day in July?! I still have no clue where June went! The good thing about today though is that it’s Wednesday Smile So link up with Jenn over at Peas and Crayons and have your own WIAW party.

Peas and Crayons

A great day for me always begins with breakfast. An oats kind of breakfast to be exact.

Chocolate nanner oats topped with granola, reeses peanut butter chips, and cinnamon raisin pb. Yum!!

For lunch I had a pizza craving! I used a flat out to make a yummy turkey pepperoni pizza.

Why order out when you can make a healthified version?  Winking smile

When it came to dinner I had yet a different fast food craving. A cheeseburger and fries were calling my name.

I used a frozen veggie burger that I had in my fridge, topped it with cheddar cheese and made some delicious sweet tatter fries. I don’t know about you but ketchup is my favorite condiment! I eat it with everything Smile My homemade healthified burger was a total win. 

With all my great nutritious meals I figured dessert should be a bit more sinful…

Oreo cupcakes anyone?! My aunt brought these and they just looked so cute I couldn’t resist. Plus the oreos were calling my name. Winking smile

There you have it! All my great meals for the day.

What’s your favorite guilty pleasure turned healthy?

    I LLOVE making my own pizza… I feel like I am enjoying it without any guilt.. less grease, fat.. use whole wheat dough.. and I am in control of everything tha tgoes on it!!

    I also like to healthify thinks like chicken parmesean.. using whole wheat bread crumbs and baking the chiken.. or no bread crumbs at all!! Much healtheir then getting it at a restaurant!

    Those cupcakes.. look amazing!

  • 2. Colleen @ The Lunchbox Diaries  |  06/29/2011 at 8:23 am

    Of course the cupcakes catch my attention the most! 🙂 I loveeee fries, so I make healthy ones like you did! Then I can eat a hefty portion and not feel terrible.

  • 3. Amanda @ Running with Spoons  |  06/29/2011 at 8:25 am

    I’ve totally done the healthified version of pizza and burgers and fries! Both are great (pizza is my fave) but you’re right… when it comes to dessert, there’s no messing around… go big or go home 😀

  • 4. Kaila @healthyhelperblog!  |  06/29/2011 at 8:31 am

    OREO cupcakes!?!?!? Love in a muffin tin right there….recipe please!?!?!?!

  • 5. Cassie  |  06/29/2011 at 8:38 am

    Chocolate milkshakes…and I want that healthy pizza 🙂

  • 6. Tara  |  06/29/2011 at 8:43 am

    Reeses pb chips on oatmeal?! Love it!!! That sounds sooo good.

    I love healthy baked goods! I love being able to have a cookie for breakfast, but since it’s loaded with whole grains, healthy fats, and not too much sugar it’s totally reasonable!

  • 7. In Sweetness and In Health  |  06/29/2011 at 9:03 am

    Oh wow, those cupcakes look amazing! Just found your blog- yay! 🙂

  • 8. Jessica @ Stylish Stealthy and Healthy  |  06/29/2011 at 9:05 am

    I can’t believe it’s almost July either, crazy! On another note, I have those plates 😉

  • 9. Tiff  |  06/29/2011 at 9:14 am

    I’m not usually one to make healthy pizza, but I have cheese, sauce, and flatout wraps at home right now. I think I see healthified pizza in my future!

  • 10. Lisa @ Healthy Diaries  |  06/29/2011 at 10:33 am

    Look at you healthifying your meals! You go girl! Everything looks so delcious!! Especially those oreo cupcakes!

    Keep up the posts! I’ve been missing you lately! 😉

  • 11. Shanna, like Banana  |  06/29/2011 at 10:54 am

    Ooo that’s tough…I healthify Mexi a bit because I love it so much, but don’t need the crazy amounts of cheese or grease.

  • 12. runningtothekitchen  |  06/29/2011 at 11:26 am

    Oh man, that cupcake looks killer!

  • 13. allieksmith  |  06/29/2011 at 11:30 am

    Mmm the dessert looks awesome! My favorite food to turn healthy is pizza 🙂

  • 14. Parita @ myinnershakti  |  06/29/2011 at 11:42 am

    I love healthified mac n’ cheese! Your burger and fries are calling my name!

  • 15. lindsay  |  06/29/2011 at 11:43 am

    OREOS!!! milks favorite cookie! thats a good wednesday!

  • 16. Peanut Butter Bandit  |  06/29/2011 at 11:54 am

    I also eat ketchup with EVERYTHING! I will actually have a 1/3 c. serving of ketchup for ONE side of fries. I’m gross, I know. 😉

  • 17. Sarah @ The Smart Kitchen  |  06/29/2011 at 11:54 am

    It has been SO long since I made Oreo cupcakes. Thanks for giving me so many cravings in this post….I think I’d attack the cheeseburger first. 🙂

  • 18. april  |  06/29/2011 at 11:56 am

    OOo those cupcakes are calling my name! I love to healthify things.. especially desserts!

  • 19. chrysta  |  06/29/2011 at 12:10 pm

    ooooo yum!! I love healthifying foods! Makes them even yummier!

  • 20. Andrea @ Vegvacious  |  06/29/2011 at 12:40 pm

    Your eats rock this week – you’ve included all my faves!! I think I need to come over and eat with you 😉

  • 21. Cara @ ChicMeetsHealthy  |  06/29/2011 at 1:11 pm

    i had a cupcake today too!! yum, they all look amazing – esp that flatbread pizza!!!

  • 22. Jenny  |  06/29/2011 at 1:33 pm

    as an avid lover of all things sweet, I just can’t settle for “healthified” versions. Things like “carrot cake oatmeal” or “strawberry cheesecake breakfast bake” are awesome in their own right, but if I want cheesecake, it better be full fat cream cheese and plain old granulated sugar!

  • 23. pumpedforpumpkin  |  06/29/2011 at 1:53 pm

    yum yum yum! I love healthified pizza it’s probably my favorite thing to make! Those cupcakes also look awesome.
    my guilty pleasure turned healthy is my pumpkin pie I make for the holidays!

  • 24. mexigarian  |  06/29/2011 at 1:55 pm

    How do you get your pizza to look so good? Last several times I made pizza it’s always been charred to crisp. :\ I love making my olive, cheese and spinach pizza and everything turns a crunchy black lol.

  • 25. Lisa (The Novice Nosher)  |  06/29/2011 at 1:58 pm

    I totally would not have turned down one of those oreo cupcakes!

    Love that you did healthier versions of “bad” foods! I feel like homemade pizza and burgers are tasty, but it’s so much more satisfying knowing you’re saving yourself some calories.

  • 26. Allison @ PickyEatingRD  |  06/29/2011 at 2:11 pm

    Ketchup is my abs fav condiment as well! In fact, I pretty much use it with everything!!

  • 27. cinnamonalicious  |  06/29/2011 at 2:34 pm

    Ahh I lOVE healthifying pizza and fries!! even more satisfying and delicious! 🙂

  • 28. peasandcrayons  |  06/29/2011 at 2:35 pm

    you’re an oreo fiend =) i want one!!!!

    ketchup is one of my favs too but i heart it paired with yellow mustard on random things! lol

    happy wiaw!

  • 29. owlmazing  |  06/29/2011 at 2:38 pm

    haha the cheese on your burger was really confusing me for a minute “what…is…that?!?!” <–me. I thought it looked like a square of jello haha! Yummy eats though, I love homemade pizza! It's da bomb! And i could totally go for 1…or 3…or those cupcakes 😛

  • 30. Mary @ Bites and Bliss  |  06/29/2011 at 3:01 pm

    Ahhh oreo cupcakes!! Those remind me of oreo cream pie my brother and I used to DEMOLISH together. So good!

  • 31. Anastasia  |  06/29/2011 at 3:04 pm

    I love sweet potato fries and I put ketchup on *everything* too. My favorite thing to put it on is brussels sprouts which grosses everyone out haha!

  • 32. Meri  |  06/29/2011 at 4:02 pm

    My “healthy” junk food is clif bars. They are 99% candy to me, but have a lot of protein and fiber on the plus side 🙂
    You are kiling me with those oreo cupcakes… I have never had one and I think its due time!

  • 33. Lauren  |  06/29/2011 at 4:32 pm

    Good for you, Jenny! Why order out when you can make your own version and it will be 100X healthier. And if you ask me, it usually tastes a hell of a lot better! Glad you let yourself induldge still, though 🙂 Lately I’ve been eating way too much already made coffee cake, so I’m making my own tomorrow. Homemade jam and all!

  • 34. Jessica @ Dishin' About Nutrition  |  06/29/2011 at 4:55 pm

    Those cupcakes look good but my sinful treat of choice would be cheesecake, it’s sooooo awesome!

  • 35. mealsformiles  |  06/29/2011 at 6:20 pm

    sweet potato fries + ketchup = winning. that’s one of my favorite healthified foods too!

  • 36. Tessa @ Amazing Asset  |  06/29/2011 at 6:47 pm

    Those cupcakes look so cute and must have tasted perfect! Learning to make your meals healthier while still satisfying yourself is the key to a balanced life. I think it’s great you found some substitutions to accommodate your cravings!
    I love sweet potato fries too… actually anythign that involves sweet potatoes 🙂

  • 37. stephsnacks  |  06/29/2011 at 7:01 pm

    oreo cupcakes… count me in!

  • 38. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)  |  06/29/2011 at 7:14 pm

    Those cupcakes look insane! Cupcakes are definitely my favorite dessert. I’m looking for a way to healthify them 🙂

  • 39. katshealthcorner  |  06/29/2011 at 8:12 pm

    Those cupcakes look AMAZING! 😀 Anything with Chocolate and Peanut Butter for me! 🙂 Your Aunt is one amazing person!

  • 40. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin  |  06/29/2011 at 8:36 pm

    I love making healthified pizza on pitas! But now you’ve just given me a huge craving for sweet potato fries. I haven’t had them in so long!

  • 41. Chels  |  06/29/2011 at 8:50 pm

    I make the same exact pizza using flat out bread…I love flat out bread, they are perfect for everything!

  • 42. Ma Ma Megan  |  06/29/2011 at 8:59 pm

    I prefer healthified pizza’s and veggie burgers and all that – to me, the real thing is not appealing to me.
    but you are right about dessert. Don’t mess with it! 🙂

  • 43. Jenny @ Fitness Health and Food  |  06/29/2011 at 9:37 pm

    Jen your eats always make me drool! I would usually say the cupcakes looked yummiest but that cheesy pizza looks AMAZING! 🙂

  • 44. BrittFit  |  06/29/2011 at 9:44 pm

    omg I need those cupacakes girl! haha ummmmm guilty pleasure..peanut butter……in EXCESS!!

  • 45. Gina  |  06/29/2011 at 10:54 pm

    Reeses peanut butter chips and peanut butter atop your oats?! Swoon! You know how to make a bowl of oats, girl! I need to try a bowl one day 😉

  • 46. Ana Monteiro  |  06/30/2011 at 12:05 am

    Oreos just call us, don’t they? It’s so hard to resist!! Those cupcakes look amazing!!! (i have a serious case of cupcake obsession. haha)

    xoxo, Ana
    @ My (Newly)Wed Life

  • 47. Grace  |  06/30/2011 at 12:06 am

    Yum! All your foods looks wonderful! I can never resist oreos either=/

  • 48. Allison (Allison's Delicious Life)  |  06/30/2011 at 1:32 am

    I love how you gave in to all your cravings but healthified them! That pizza looks so legit 🙂 I also love a good veggie burger and fries.

  • 49. Brittany (A Healthy Slice of Life)  |  06/30/2011 at 8:58 am

    Oreo cupcakes?! Sign this prego up! YUM!

  • 50. Kelly @ Laughter, Strength, and Food  |  06/30/2011 at 9:53 am

    O.M.G. Those oreo cupcakes look amazing!

  • 51. Hollie @ Lolzthatswim(andRun)  |  06/30/2011 at 10:18 am

    My pancakes have really turned into a healthier form of pancakes which is why I have them nearly every morning. 50 grams of protein and carbs and fiber plus calcium so my bones don’t break. Perfect in my life.

  • 52. ThE DiVa DiSh  |  06/30/2011 at 10:20 am

    You always make the best oats! So delicious looking! And yummy cupcakes! Oreos are your fav!! 🙂

  • 53. Lauri (RedHeadRecipes.com)  |  06/30/2011 at 12:34 pm

    I’ve seen those ‘Flat Out’ breads and thought about buying them… Your pizza looks yummy so I might have to give ’em a go!

    My guilty pleasure is definitely french fries! And I will take ’em anyway they come–> ‘healthified’ or not 🙂

  • 54. Katie  |  06/30/2011 at 1:19 pm

    Hi love!!!!!

    Favorite healthified guilty pleasure… probably butternut squash fries! YUM!

  • 56. Caroline  |  06/30/2011 at 2:45 pm

    I have NO idea where June went either, it’s creeping me out. Time really does fly. That pizza looks heavenly right now. I’d kill for a slice! Oh, and those Oreo cookies aren’t half bad either. 😉

  • 59. sprint2thetable  |  06/30/2011 at 4:25 pm

    Ohhh… your eats look so good! My fav guilty pleasure turned healthy… I don’t know if it counts, but when I make my banana chia pudding and heat it in the morning I sweat it tastes like banana pudding. And that makes me happy.

  • 60. Carlyn  |  06/30/2011 at 4:27 pm

    That pizza looks so good! I love turkey pepperoni…
    I never buy fast food because I know I can always healthify it! Your post is a prime example (:

  • 61. Ellie@fitforthesoul  |  06/30/2011 at 4:55 pm

    whoa there! the cupcakes look so delicious! I’m not a fan of oreos, except for the actual black cookie part, and this looks really good. 🙂 So I see someone’s been in the kitchen more lately huhhh? I remember you once mentioned you don’t really bake if I’m not incorrect? 😛

  • 62. Sweet Cheeks  |  06/30/2011 at 5:15 pm

    Dang, those look totally sinful yet they are completely healthy! I LOVE IT!!!

  • 63. Alexa @ Simple Eats  |  06/30/2011 at 5:29 pm

    To my fellow Oreo lover, those cupcakes look SO good! I’m jealous! I love healthified fries!
