Southwestern Sweet Potato Balls with Yogurt Crema

November 11, 2012

Crispy panko-coated sweet potato balls bursting with the flavors of the Southwest and paired with a zesty yogurt crema sauce for dipping. I know it might be a bit early to be posting about Thanksgiving leftovers, but you may find yourselves making these well before Thanksgiving. I was trying to come up with an idea […]

Wholesome eats, less treats

August 4, 2010

Just popping in for a midweek post! After some weekend indulgences, it’s time to pay the piper . . . Breakfast is my usual — I’m so glad I switched back to the light english muffins.  Now the cheese doesn’t run off the bread, but instead melts nicely into the nooks and crannies.  This is […]

Strong start!

July 12, 2010

I love it when Monday goes well — it seems to set the tone for the week. Breakfast was a no-brainer: It makes things so much easier when I have a go-to to-go breakfast! I made sure lunch was tasty so I wouldn’t be tempted to go out: These are actually lunch and afternoon snack […]

Bento, deconstructed

March 29, 2010

Thanks again everyone for your supportive words the other day, they were a great comfort to me.  I think I’m in one of those funks and whining about my weight is the easiest thing to dump it on.  It’s a constant struggle and I’m tired of fighting it.  Anyway, I’m sure I’ll talk about it […]

Pick your own title Thursday

February 25, 2010

I can’t do it, I have title-writer’s block.  Considering this is my second post in the same day, I can cut myself some slack. This week I’ve been struggling with getting up to exercise in the morning.  It’s not like I have to leave the house to work-out, all I’m doing is stumbling downstairs to […]

Must be Monday . . .

February 22, 2010

Because I wish it was still the weekend!  🙂 We had the most gorgeous weather this weekend and I took full advantage of it — my legs are making me pay today!  I already wrote about how I attempted a Couch to 5K workout on Saturday.  Yesterday my legs were in agony but I couldn’t […]

Yummy eats

January 26, 2010

I hope  I didn’t offend anybody yesterday when I was talking about my “cupcakes” yesterday!  🙂 Day 2 of getting up early to work out!  I did a different Walk Away the Pounds dvd (don’t ask how many I have) and then tried one of the workouts from the Biggest Loser – Cardio Max dvd.  […]

Spice’s Bites: Jan. 2, 2010

January 2, 2010

I know I don’t do these daily food posts a lot, but I want to try to do them more often.  Knowing people are going to see and judge what I eat can be a good munchie-deterrent.  Plus the visual aspect of food journaling makes a bigger impact than just logging it online. My biggest […]

Lazy leftovers

November 8, 2009

I’m loving these lazy Sundays! Even though we’re trying to eat what we already have at home, I really did need to pick up some stuff at the store today.  I did pretty well about not going crazy and not stockpiling like I usually do.  A few treats did find their way into the cart.  […]

Rice made nice

October 4, 2009

I’m making this quick because I had a LONG day today. I had to actually come into the office today. On a Sunday. And I worked yesterday too. But I’m so glad I did or else I would have been really behind on Monday, with the October 15th deadline looming. Anyway, I was very tired […]
