I saw a recipe for chocolate peanut butter cookies and a craving was born!
I honored my desire for chocolate and peanut butter with a healthy breakfast wrap featuring peanut butter and cottage cheese mixed with sweetener and lots of cocoa powder.
(Sorry for the cruddy picture. My camera is crabby today.)
This wrap was d-to-the-e-to-the-l-i-c-i-o-u-s (can you tell I was listening to the Black Eyed Peas this morning?). If you’re cottage cheese averse, try adding a little sweetener and some cinnamon or cocoa powder to the curds. It totally changes the flavor.
Side note: I think the word “curd” might be in the top five of my list of disgusting words. (Other top contenders include slop and panties.)
Pump it Up!
BodyPump was awesome this morning. I feel like I’m getting some of my strength back from my week off of weight training over Thanksgiving. My biceps and hamstrings were a-burnin’ today! I rounded out my workout with 25 minutes of light cardio on the elliptical with Food Network magazine.
The December issue features 50 (yes 50!) recipes for Christmas cookies! I can’t wait to make some. I’m going to a Christmas cookie exchange on Dec. 20 and am already excited!
Are you making any cookies for the holidays? What’s your favorite kind?
In case you missed it, click here for my Examiner article featuring low calorie Christmas cookies including the oatmeal, chocolate chip and pecan cookies pictured below.
How adorable are these foodie t-shirts?
I love simple t’s like these. A good gift idea for a foodie friend or a vegetarian perhaps???
Ryan the Food Pho-tog
This morning Ryan’s mom emailed me two pictures my photograph-savvy fiance snapped over Thanksgiving.
He’s quite the picture-taker, huh?
Also, is it just me or does that holiday sangria look freakin’ fantastic!? I could go for a glass right now… too bad it’s not even noon. 😉
Hope you’re all having a great Friday so far. Yay for weekend-eve! 😀
