I’ve never wanted a deep fryer, it’s one small appliance that I know my kitchen and my body could do without. However, I will admit that from time to time I crave crispy fries with my Sweet n’ Spicy Turkey Burger or perfect hash browns with my poached eggs on the weekend; I just don’t want the grease and pain in my chest after. That’s where the T-fal Actifry comes in.
Today I say goodbye to my early – mid twenties and I’m feeling a little bittersweet. I’m usually pretty excited about birthdays, but this time around there was a little bit of dread.
The past week and a bit has been hot, really hot. It was too hot to cook and the heat was affecting my little guy’s appetite. These Cherry Popsicles were a no fail, he loved them (I’ve made a few batches since this) and I loved the fact that he wasn’t consuming any fake ingredients and refined sugar.
My son loves frozen treats. Whether it’s ice cream, freezes or popsicles he is always asking for a treat and I find myself saying no too often. I made Pineapple Popsicles with my new Zoku, and now my son can help himself whenever he wants.
Everyday I log onto Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and (my favorite social media platform) Instagram, and everyday I see stunningly beautiful women on my newsfeed. It can be a little intimidating at times, and I tend to do the unhealthy thing and compare myself to others.
I have been seeing a lot of mug cake recipes floating around Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook. The idea is great, a single serve “mug of cake”, however a lot of the recipes are higher in calories then a regular slice of cake! I’m really into protein mug cakes, they keep you full and don’t have the added calories that flour based ones have.
I do my best to live each day the healthiest I can. For the most part I exercise daily, I do my best to mentally live well and I watch my nutrition. With that being said, I’m not perfect: I like to watch TV while I eat, I tend to over do it with snacks, and I let my stress take over far too often. Right now, I am making fresh swaps with the Subway Commit To Fit Pledge.
I’m really enjoying the 21 Day Fix workouts, it’s something I’m planning on continuing even when I’m finished round two of The Fix. I searched the web and found some of the workouts that you can take with you for an “anywhere workout”.
