Happy Friday!

Unfortunately, I’m still sick, but I plan to get a lot more rest today.  Truth be told, it is very difficult for me to sit still.  Even when I watch television, I’m usually also doing something else, such as blogging, reading, or organizing (it’s an addiction).

However, I was mostly good yesterday and allowed myself to rest up.  Fingers crossed that I am able to sit still long enough today to do the same!

I’m hoping to feel much better by tomorrow afternoon because my mother-in-law is throwing me a baby shower.  I’ll obviously give you a full recap on Monday.  :)

Given the fact that I’ve been sick, I have not been too hungry, but even so, I do have some healthy foods to share with you from the past week.


Healthy eats from the week

Green smoothie

Pumpkin oatmeal

Tofu pan-fried in a little sesame oil with raw honey and sesame seeds served over a salad

Tofu wrap with cantaloupe

IHOP Simple & Fit spinach, mushroom, and tomato omelet with fruit

Organic butternut squash soup and wrap

Sauteed chicken breasts with creamy chive sauce

Crock pot buffalo chicken

Salad with romaine, red peppers, cucumber, red onion, baby beets, and corn kernels

Oatmeal with cinnamon and strawberries

Splurge of the week Since I didn’t have a major splurge this week, this will have to do…

Starbucks pumpkin spice latte with soy milk (most likely the first of many this season)

The recipe for sauteed chicken breasts with creamy chive sauce was from Eating Well, and it was incredibly delicious!  It tasted rich- even though it was healthy.    Rather than using sour cream, I substituted plain Greek yogurt, but that was the only change I made to the recipe.

Oh and that is Michael’s plate in the photo above.  I’m still on bad terms with broccoli. ;)

What was the healthiest food you ate this week?  Any fun splurges?  I need to have a good splurge next week. It’s been too long!

Have a great day!

  1. Pumpkin oatmeal sounds amazing! It’s terrible but as soon as the weather starts changing I crave pumpkin EVERYTHING. I’m like a pumpkin monster or something!

    • Definitely try pumpkin in your oatmeal! It looks weird, but it is really creamy and tastes so good, especially with lots of cinnamon. I’m a pumpkin monster too. :)
