Healthy Eats

I have always been sort of into healthy food... balanced with a hearty taste for pizza, hoagies, and fast food.  In the last couple of years I have gotten more and more into healthy foods and aside from dinner my meals and snacks are almost always healthy (ish...) Here are some of my favorite things that are in regular rotation, almost daily.

My go-to on the go snack.  Only 2 grams of sugar and carbs and 100 calories!  I try to keep one in my purse at all times.

Crack popcorn.  A few large handfuls of this fulfill my salt craving with minimal calories and fat.

This is hands down the best hummus I have ever heard.  However, I can never find it anywhere.  Moral of the story:  if you see it, buy it in bulk and fill your belly with deliciousness!

I love carbs.  I need carbs.  My post-baby body disagrees with me on this.  We compromise with Ezekial bread.  It's healthy and sprout based and pretty tasty to eat!  Most mornings I eat a piece of this toasted with low fat cream cheese and an egg or natural peanut butter and a banana.

I love quinoa.  It has taken the place of rice and some pasta in our house.  It is great as a side dish or to mix with veggies and a protein (ground turkey) as a main dish.  It feels you up and keeps you full!  

Oh hey there, how did this slip in here.... this is not the healthiest thing in the world but it is a mommy requirement some days!

What do you eat/recommend that is tasty and healthy?

p.s. please not that I indulged in some left over birthday cake while writing this post.  Oops!


  1. Have you tried the Skinny Girl wines/drinks? I was skeptical at first, but bought some for a party and it was pretty good, and a lot less calories!


    1. I have tried the wines and the drinks! I like the marg and the white cranberry cosmo the best! The wines are pretty tasty for "diet" wine! I'm glad you like too! Cheers to lighter drinking! xo

  2. I love Ezekiel bread and that hummus looks incredible!

    1. Get your hands on some of that hummus stat! I promise you won't regret it!
