Instant SYTYCD

I woke up this morning to find my mom making my brother a milkshake for breakfast (LOVE HER!) so that she could use up some of the stuff in our freezer...aka Blue Bell Cookies & Cream. (Check out our crammed freezer here! There is only 1 Holey Donuts Box Left! Saaad!)
Well, after seeing that, I was intrigued to make one myself. There was no IceCream or FroYo left, so I scrounged around in the pantry and found Instant Vanilla Pudding. Score! I put ABOUT:
  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 2T Vanilla Instant Pudding (perhaps a bit more?! Just add it to the right consistency)
  • 1T Chocolate Carnation Instant Breakfast
  • Lots of Crushed Ice

WOWZERS! It was soooooo good! Although, it was only 9AM. To avoid a sugar crash (and to give myself something to look forward to when my inevitable sweet tooth takes over), I put the creamy creation in a tupperware dish and stuck it in the freezer (yep, I found room! haha). This WILL BE a repeat event......mark my word.


I then got ready for work, etc and before I knew it, it was 10:30 and I had to eat lunch. That's right. I have to leave around 11:15 for work, so lunch comes early. Anyways, I hadn't had tuna salad in a while, so I whipped up a batch with loads of honey mustard and a bit of Miracle Whip.
The Grilled Sammie consisted of:
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • All Natural Swiss
  • 1/2 batch of tuna salad (made with one can)

Alongside, I had a ripe peach!

I then headed to work (11:30-5), which was much better today! Plus, it was payday, so what more could you ask for!?

Alot of you have been saying that you don't know how I resist eating the whole store. Well, let me preface this by saying that I do eat a few chocolate chips or M&M's that may fall out of the dispenser as I am cleaning from time to time, but not much more than that. ALSO, after cleaning froyo off of walls, floors, etc; eating it right then and there is not the first thing on your mind. However, I have had a few bites here and there. Don't get me wrong, I love froyo as much as I love cereal (and that speaks volumes); but as I'm wiping it off the floor, it's not too appealing in the moment! haha

Anyways, after work, I rushed home to make dinner and relax before SPINNNNNNNNNNNNNNING!, which by the way, was GRRReat tonight! I love my instructor! She involves us in the class and really makes you work!

Beforehand, I ate the remainder of my Cheesecake Factory Salad spritzed with Wishbone Honey Mustard Buzz Salad Spritzers. Alongside I had some hummus, carrots and a slice of leftover brown bread from the Cheesecake Factory (YUM!). It was delightful.
HOWEVER, my sweet tooth could NOT wait any longer and I had to dive into my creation from this morning. I didn't take another picture because it was in a tupperware container (not very photogenic); but after a slight thaw in the micro, it was just as creamy as ever! :D
I actually wished it was raining today....haha...there was no free cool down after spinning! Then again, the drive home was much quicker! I was craving some carbs when I got home and knew the perfect thing...........A Holey Donut! I had already dug my fork into the doughy creation and remembered to take a picture last minute! It was so delicious and I almost couldn't wait! ;)

In other news, I WON SOMETHING ELSE! I am loving this! I now get to try Chia Seeds thanks to Heather! Any good recipes?! I know that I want to try her Chia Protein Oats! Speaking of giveaways, Check out this fabulous one from Healthy On the Run!! :D
I just had some more carrots and HUMMUS! SERIOUSLY, why has noone informed me just how fabulous this combo is?! I can't get enough. I have Laughing Cow in my fridge that I haven't touched for days. Wait, really?! Let me check. Yep. Wow, that's wierd!
Oh and I just dug into the Tortilla chips for a little munch during SYTYCD! Does anyone else follow this show?! No? What about Next Food Network Star!? It starts this Sunday and I am SOO EXCITED!


I ALMOST FORGOT!!! I WINNER OF THE HOLEY DONUTS GIVEAWAY (after much deliberation by my friend Alexa because they were ALL so catchy!) IS ...........

Ruthie at Learning to Revolve. She said...

My Jingle:

Fluffed and puffed and full of flavor

Holey Donuts are something you can savor!

Easy, peezy, lemon squeezy

Make a choice and open the freezy.

Zap it and before you know

Get ready to taste that gooey dough.

Grab a fork or use your fingers

The thought of waiting never lingers.

So what, you ask, am I trying to say?!

Have a sinless Holey Donut and brighten your day!

Congrats!! Email your address to nutritiousisdelicious (@) yahoo.com and I'll hook you up! :D


  1. Ooh I love your milkshake creation! That looks awesome! I'm glad you had such a good spinning class. Having a great instructor can make all the difference :D

    Love the holey donut! Seriously, if I don't win these things soon I will have to break down and buy them. My resolve is definitely cracking!

    Have a great night!

  2. that grilled sandwich looks great!

  3. I use margarine, but it's Smart Balance! This margarine is enriched with Omega-3 fatty acids and it's trans fat free :)

  4. Thanks for the shoutout girl! I am soo jealous of those holey donuts.. I might have to crack and buy some online ;)

  5. OMG! OMG! OMG! I have NEVER won anything and I am literally freaking out right now! AHHHHHHH SO EXCITING! haha Thank you sooooooooo much for picking me! This is the best news I've gotten all week! :) Weeeeeeeee! I'll be sure to send my address!

    p.s. I loveee fro yo too! :)

  6. What an indulgent breakfast smoothie!! I bet that was downright refreshing. Vanilla pudding, mmm. How could you go wrong?? :)

    I can totally see how froyo would be less appealing if you're dealing with it in THAT sort of way every day. But all the same, sneaking toppings sounds yum!

  7. Good point about the fro-yo. I wouldn't want to eat it after cleaning it off the floor either. Awesome pudding breakfast creation!

  8. Smoothie sounds heavenly! I worked at Starbucks and yeah...once you have seen stuff dropped all over the floor, etc it's NOT as appealing to eat/drink it. ;)

    have a fabulous friday and a GREAT weekend!

  9. That smoothie (or milkshake?) looks delicious! Either way, I'm sure it tasted FABBB! Yummy eats all around. YAY for spinning! I am so jealous of your chia winning skills haha. Cannot wait to see what you do with them!!
    <3 jess

  10. You think hummus and carrots are good? Try hummus with mushrooms - DELISH!! I love your pudding creation!

    Working with food is one easy way to kill any appeal to it! I hear ya on that one!!

  11. Your instant pudding creation looks great! And so does that Holey Donut, mmm. <3

  12. Everything looks great!

    Your freezer looks like mine! haha I am trying to put a dent in it too.

    Have a great Friday!

  13. brown bread from cheesecake factory is the BEST. their salads are amazing as well. i basically just love that place in general.

    good idea about the milkshake! that sounds so good right now!

  14. mmm grilled sammie look amazinggggg


  15. dude SOOO glad you discovered the hummus carrot combo. i know what you mean about losing the love when you are wiping crap off the walls/floor, hellloooo former jamba juice employee here! haha. glad you are enjoying those FAMOUS holey donuts to the bitter end!

  16. Thank you so much for all your spinning help! I feel a lot more prepared for my next class :) I need someone so enthusiastic about spinning to keep me going!

    I know what you mean about the fro yo. I used to work at a chocolate store in high school. I definitely ate it occasionally but it lot its appeal after awhile. That is over now though, still love chocolate and fro yo- I'm actually eating some right now haha.

  17. Lunch looks great! And that holey donut looks amazing!
