Well Alexa and I were planning on trying pilates tomorrow night, but I have to work the late shift, so we are going on Tuesday morning!
Any Pilates Gu-Ru's out there?!
So this is not a post of all of my eats today...rather some of my more interesting eats...

First...PB Yogurt (it's been too long) with frozen banana chunks. Go. Make. This. Now.

Mix about 1/2 c. Yogurt (I use FF Vanilla Stonyfield Farm) with ~1T PB (Mine was crunchy this time) and stir in ~half of a frozen banana (I cut my bananas into small chunks before freezing and then microwave them for about 6 seconds so that I can seperate them).

After mixing, the bananas act as a type of gelatin/whatnot and it's so creamy & cool.....Oh man! :D
For "Brunch", I made a frittata of sorts....I sauteed the following veggies:
  • Portabellos
  • Red Peppers
  • Carrots
  • Onion
  • Shredded Broccoli Stems (this is an ingenious way to use the bulky stems..and sneak veggies into your diet!)
  • TOOOOONS of Chili Powder :D

When verything looked just right, I turned down the heat and poured in 1egg + 1 egg white (beaten together). Once it looked fairly set, I placed it under the broiler until it look fully cooked.

Then I cut it up and plated...Let's get a closer look at this goodness! SOOO Good! And such a fun way to mix things up!

After work, I dove into this little guy..err gal... ;)

Penny's Low Fat Desserts Almond Poppy Seed Muffin Top
There is a light lemon essence in the midst of a perfectly subtle sweetness. However, the first thing you will notice is that each bite is...very, very dense, almost like a sweet dough; which I actually thoroughly enjoyed! The abundance of poppy seeds adds a slight element of crunch, but the delightfully dense textural experience overwhelms.
I enjoyed every. single. bite.
And finished it off with a scoop of Breyers FREE Vanilla Ice Cream! MMM baby! :D
Look at what came in the mail today...it is from Anthro! They have the cutest stuff! They sent me a 15% off coupon because (I just wrote b/c...your not in 10th grade anymore, Emily!) my birthday is this month (July 16th!) and it came in a cute little sewing pouch!

Next Food Network Star is on tonight and my mom and I are sooooo READY!

    Loved the frittata, very festive and colorful. I love chili powder too. Sometimes I put cayenne in my ice cream!

    Yeah for pilates. I Just do the videos, I figure I should get used to it before doing it with tons of other people!

  15. I've always wondered, do you really get a strong peanut butter flavor when you mix it in yogurt? It seems like it would get swept away

  16. Mmm that frittata looks yumm-ay! I love the big chunks of veggies! Have a great day!
