More Foodie ABC’s

Hi bloggies!!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend, I know I did Smile  I went to my cousin’s bridal shower (pictures will be up later), saw X-Men:First Class [If you haven’t seen it, watch it!!], and got to eat s’mores for the first time.

And now I’ll indulge you in the second half of my foodie survey

L is for Lunch, what was yours today?

I haven’t had lunch yet but I will tell you about my lunch from yesterday. I had a pasta salad with feta cheese and chicken covered in light Italian dressing. It was delicious.

M: is for Microwave, what is your favorite microwave meal/snack?

I love making Ashley’s oat cake in the microwave

Easy, fast, and super delicious!

N: is for nutrients, do you like carbs, fats, or proteins best?

This is an easy one. I’m a fats lover all the way!

Give me the peanut butter please

Cinnamon raisin swirl=

O: is for Oil, what kind do you like to use?

I always use extra virgin olive oil for cooking.

P: is for Protein, how do you gets yours?

I get in a lot of protein. Whether it’s in the form of chicken, cottage cheese, greek yogurt, or my delicious fro-yo!

Who wouldn’t like to eat this for protein? Winking smile

Q: is for Quaker, how do you like your oats?

This is an easy one. I love my oats hot, cold, and every way in between.


R: is for Roasting, what is your favorite thing to roast?

Veggies! And lots of them. I love roasting up asparagus or potatoes

S: is for Sandwich, what’s your favorite kind?

When it comes to sammies, I’m pretty boring. I either do a classic turkey and cheese combo or I do a spin off of breakfast and do an egg, cheese, and sausage sammie.

T: is for Travel, how do you handle eating while traveling?

It all depends on where I’m going but usually I tend to indulge. How often to do you get to travel? When I went on my last cruise I did choose the more calorie friendly options but I had my ice cream and my decadent tropical drinks Winking smile

The bf and I at Key West (May 2010)

U: is for Unique, what is one of your weirdest food combos?

All of my food combos are weird in one way or another. One time I was eating a waffle sandwich with ham and cheese covered in syrup and my friends thought I was disgusting….Don’t they sell this stuff at like Dunkin Donuts?? I didn’t think I was that weird…

V: is for Vitamins, what kind do you take?

I take Centrum chewables Smile

W: is for Wasabi, yay or nay?

Omg I love me some wasabi. Yay all the way!!

X: is for Xtra special, what food holds a special place in your heart?

I definitely have a soft spot for oreos could anyone not??!

Y: is for Yogurt, you can only afford 1 cup, what kind do you purchase?…

Eek this one is hard because I love yogurt! I’m going to say Dannon Light and Fit. ❤ the stuff

Z: is for Zero guilt, what food can you enjoy over and over without any guilt?

If I plan on overindulging then any food that I eat I consider to be guilt free. I love to make fro-yo at home because I can control what goes into it so it’s never “guilty” but sometimes you need the naughty toppings.

Love Menchies

There you have it! My full survey. Now tell me…

What special food holds a spot in your heart?

ABC’s of Food!

Happy Friday!! Hope everyone is having a wonderful day so far. I’m having quite the writer’s block so I decided to do a survey that has been going around the blog world. Smile

Let’s get started peeps!

A: is for Apple, what’s your favorite variety?

I’m not really into apples, I gotta be honest. I know you all love your apples dipped in peanut butter but I’m not really a fan. If I had to choose I would pick Golden Delicious.

B: is for Bread, regardless of nutrition, calories, or whole grains what is your favorite type to have a nice big piece of?

I love bread. I went a long time without eating it when I use to think that carbs=evil. Glad I know better now. There’s just something about cinnamon raisin bread that owns my heart.

C: is for Cereal what is your favorite kind currently (just one!)

Wow this is a tough one. I love all kinds of cereal but as of recently I’ve been pretty addicted to Cheerios. Not just any kind of cheerios…Chocolate Cheerios! Today I had Cinnamon Burst for the first time and I fell in love.

I will never give up cereal

D: is for Doughnuts, you might not currently be eating them but what kind do you fancy?

When it comes to sweet treats I’m like a 7 year old. I want it covered with vanilla frosting and sprinkles galore!

Btw today is National Donut Day, so hit up your Dunkin Donuts for a free donut with the purchase of a drink. Nommm

E: is for Eggs, how would you like yours prepared?

I’m a big lover of eggs over easy.

Especially in a sammie!! Nomomom

F: is for Fat Free, what is your favorite fat free product?

Hmm I use to live off the fat free goods back in the day. Now I say bring me the peanut butter!! But there are some fat free foods I fancy. I love fat free refried beans in burritos and yummy veggies.

G: is for Groceries, where do you purchase yours at?

I wish I had a Trader Joes by me but I don’t. I shop at Publix, Winn Dixie, and the occasional Wally World (Walmart).

I also like Costco when I’m running low on nut butters and need to stock up!

H: is for Hot Beverages, what is your favorite hot drink?

This is an easy one. Coffee!!! I love it. Must have my daily cup in the morning to get my motor running.

I hate to say I’m addicted but I kind of am lol

I’m all about the french vanilla roast. Yumm!

I: is for Ice Cream, pick a favorite flavor and add a fun topping.

Since most of you know about my obsession with all things oreo related it’s no suprise my favorite ice cream is Cookies and Cream!

Add a topping?…Oreos, duh!!

J: is for Jams or Jellies, do you eat them, and if so what kind and flavor?

Of course I eat them! My favorite is apricot, especially over my warm oats.

K: is for Kashi, name your favorite Kashi product?

I love Kashi cereals, so much healthier than all those processed brands. My favorites are Berry Crisp and Honey Sunshine.

I don’t eat cereal alone Winking smile

There you have the first half of my survey! Smile

So tell me what’s your favorite cereal? What about ice cream? (Hard to pick just 1!!)

Battle Of The Oats


dancing stick figures
Hope everyone is partying it up because it is Friday!! 😀 I just wanted to say thank you for all the positive feedback I got from my last post. It’s nice to know I’m not the only indecisive one out there. It’s such a terrible trait that I have which I’m definitely trying to work on everyday. You guys are such an inspiration, love you all! 😀

In case you wondering the recipe for my cheesecake froyo I posted it here (let me know if you make it!)

I started off the day with a fantastic workout consisting of:

  • Leg presses: 5 reps with 220 lbs
  • Push ups: 15
  • Step ups: 8 reps with 20 lb dumbbells in each hand
  • Lat pulldowns
  • Hyperextensions
  • Cable Crunches
  • Wood Choppers

I love my weight lifting days, gives me so much energy throughout the day.

After I got my muscles pumping I was ready to give them some major fuel 😉

Breakfast was as follows:

Chocolate Nanner Oats

I made them stove top today 😉

In the mix: 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup water, cocoa powder, cinnamon, 9g chia seeds,1/4 nanner

Topped with: 1/4 nanner, peanuts, cinnamon raisin pb, apricot jam, and organic bunny graham crackers!!



As soon as I saw these I knew they had to be in my possession. They were so yummy! And only 130 calories for 30 grams. Perfect finish to my oats 🙂





Lunch was a simple but delicious Egg McMuffin 😉 Watch out McDonalds!!


If you were wondering about the title of my post it was because of these oats that I made the other day

My fabulous pumpkin pie oats

Mmmm yummm 😀

Battle of the oats!

  • Which do you prefer? Pumpkin oats or Banana?

(Nanners will always be my number 1 choice ;))

Oats, Sammies, and Froyo

Happy Saturday bloggies!!!

Hope all of you are having a most wonderful Saturday, unlike me who had to wake up at 7 for an 8:30am class 😦 The professor didn’t get there till 9 because of an accident on the highway. After class which was 11:20, I drove my butt to Miami Beach to visit the Apple Store once again….And it was packed, once again…I had made an appointment for 12:40 and ended up getting there an hour earlier figuring they could squeeze me in early, I was wrong. I waited till my actual appointment time. Gahh I hate waiting especially when they hardly helped me with my phone issues.

Well no more sappy stories, on to the eats!

This was breakfast from Thursday


Oaties 🙂

My favorite combo: chocolate nanner oats,

with peanuts, graham crackers, chia seeds, chocolate morsels, and cinnamon swirl pb on top.

A breakfast like this guarantees an awesome day 🙂

Yesterday turned out to be a great night. I went to my boyfriend’s sisters house (who is practically my sister) for dinner. She made delicious chicken sammies for us, and let’s just say I was not disappointed. They were so simple to make that I wondered why in the world haven’t I made these before!!

They were huge!!! I really thought I was eating out, they tasted spectacular. I need to make these asap. I learned her trick was deglazing the pan, I’ve never done that before and it made a huge difference in the flavor.

If you think dinner is the star of this post, wait until you see dessert! We went to Menchies for some serious fro-yo

All these were mine…Lol kidding! Mine was the one on the Right. Can you say amazing?! Omg I was in froyo heaven 😀



I had a mixture of yogurt: Cookies & Cream/ Cheesecake ( I couldn’t pick one), with strawberries, chocolate syrup, peanut butter syrup, peanut butter morsels, oreo chunks, white chocolate chips, and sprinkles. Yes I know I went a little overboard lol Let’s just say it was a cheat and call it a day 😉

Perfect way to end a great Friday night with friends, or should I say family.

Have a fabulous Saturday everyone!

  • What’s your favorite fro-yo place? Do you overload the toppings like me?

Ch Ch Ch Chiaaaa

Post my title anywhere other than on a food blog and this is what people think of …

Us foodies know better 😉

Not only was it a beautiful day in Miami

But I was even more excited because I recently purchased Chia Seeds off Amazon and they arrived yesterday to my house!! I’ve never had chia seeds in my oats and after seeing so many bloggers use them to spruce up their overnight oatmeal I knew they had to be in my possession. Luckily my thoughtful boyfriend had given me an almost empty nut butter jar so I knew exactly how to put it to good use  😉

Last night I made my mixture and this morning I woke up to this

Let me just say that chia seeds really do make a difference in texture. Last time I made them I used Fage which really helps to thicken the oats but when I ran out I noticed that regular yogurt really doesn’t work the same. It has a more liquid texture which I wasn’t too fond of.

In my overnight mix I used:

30 grams of oats, 1/4 cup chocolate silk milk, 2.65 ounces of Dannon Light & Fit, 9g chia seeds, 1/2 banana, cinnamon, and about 15g of Naturally More pb that was in the jar.

This morning I topped it with half a pack of 100 calories shortbread cookies, 10 g of Cinnamon Oat Crunch cereal, some bloobs, and 1/2 T chocolate morsels.

Amazing? Yes, yes it was 🙂 And very filling! I really didn’t notice the difference from when I used my greek yogurt but in regards to regular yogurt it made a big difference, so if you are using plain ol yogurt then go for the chia!!

Lunch was simple, nothing crazy 😉

I am loving these 100 calorie Thomas English Muffins! I put a turkey patty and some deli meat inside for a perfect sammie 😀

I keep thinking its Saturday for some reason because I’m just relaxing with the boyfriend studying about to start studying the upper limbs of the body.

TGIF everyone!!

Decided to get a little creative with my lovey dovey text messages 😀

Any plans for tonight?
