Breakfast Same

I eat the same thing EVERY SINGLE MORNING. I do not change it at all.

-2 Scoops of Fat Free Plain Greek Yogurt

-1 light squirt of Honey

-1/4 Cup Trader Joe’s Low Fat Granola Cereal with Almonds (It is shockingly better for you than any other granola AND it tastes amazing!)

Thats it!

Ok I lie, there have been an occasion that instead of Honey I add diced fresh strawberries, but I rarely have them.

It’s actually weird because I use to HATE Greek Yogurt, a bunch. Now I love it! I have also never really been a big fan of eating the same thing all the time, but the more I try to focus on food as fuel, the less I care about taste and stuff.

Anyways its a good breakfast.

It’s also light enough that I can work out 20 minutes after I eat with no heartburn or too full feeling. And it keeps me full until 1 o’clock or so (I usually eat at 8am).

Oh and if you are wondering what kind of Yogurt I use. The BEST is the Fage Total 0% from Costco. Its like $5 for the big tub, most grocery stores charge $5 for the medium size tub.  I go through about 1 tub every 7 or 8 days. It’s also super thick so it’s not all liquidy and gross like most yogurt. I’m a big fan.

Alright now I need to way Mr. Gaunt up and go workout!

 

TJ Breakfast

TRADER JOES:

-Fat Free Vanilla Greek Yogurt

-Low Fat Vanilla Almond Granola

-Strawberries

-Organic Honey

Mr. Gaunt and I walked to The Farmers Market and got BreadFarm Samish River Potato Bread, and walked back home (3.2 Miles). It was super windy, but felt great to get some exercise in. Then we drove down to Seattle to go wedding dress shopping for my friend Mallory, and lastly Ikea. Mr. Gaunt bought an entertainment center because our old one we had to leave with the house. All in all a lovely day.

Veggie Calzones

I went a few weeks ago to Olympia to hang out with my BFF Mallory and her Fiance Aaron.  Aaron jokingly said I could only stay if I cooked for them…lol. Mallory is Vegetarian, so I did what I always do and FoodGawker’ed  “vegetarian” looking for something new and exciting, that’s when I saw it, Vegetarian Calzones….Holla! This was super exciting!

My recipe was very roughly based off this recipe. However, I’m not really a “make your own dough” kinda girl, so we headed to the magical land of Trader Joe’s. We didn’t have Trader Joe’s in Colorado, so I’m very excited to add them to my weekly shopping, as I hear nothing but good things. We got everything for this meal there, including Whole Wheat pizza dough.

INGREDIENTS:

-Fat Free Ricotta Cheese

-Low Fat mozzarella

-Red Pepper

-Onion

-Garlic

-Basil (fresh)

-Italian ToFurky Sausage

-2 packages of Whole Wheat Pizza Dough

 

DIRECTIONS:

-Let the dough sit out for 20 minutes, as the package says to do so.

-Chop onions, garlic, peppers, and Sausage

-Saute vegetables in olive oil, add sausage and Saute that too.

-Meanwhile mix the Ricotta and the Mozzarella and Chopped fresh Basil into a large mixing bowl.

-When the veggies and Sausage are cooked, mix them into the cheese bowl (its fine if they are still a bit hot).

-Set aside the “insides” and separate the dough into 4 balls, roll out with a little flour into ovals. Put a big scoop of the “inside” mixture int he center of the dough, fold over and crimp. Bake based on your dough’s instructions. We also added little bowls of marinara for dipping.
