I’m thrilled to share that I will be participating in #FebPhotoADay, a challenge I came across on – did you guess it? – Pinterest the other day, and have been excited for ever since. Here is what I’ll be documenting over the next 29 days.
Today was reserved for my view. Though it’s a bit overcast, I still love looking out during the work day.
I’ll be sharing these photos on Twitter, too. Let me know if you’d like to join in!
This week I’ve been indulging in some rather fantastic food. It all started with a bowl of Cheerios.
Not just any Cheerios. Multi Grain Peanut Butter Cheerios. If you’re a peanut butter lover like me, then these are just as good as they sound and look on the outside of the box.
My lunch of choice for this week comes courtesy of a California quinoa salad that I picked up on sale in the prepared foods section of Whole Foods (click here for coupon while it’s available). This salad is made with red quinoa, edamame, cilantro, coconut, mango, almonds, red bell pepper, raisins and onions. I combine it with chicken sausage for even more protein. YUM.
Dinner has been a variety of different soups and mix-ins, including this lentil with sliced turkey. I topped it with a little Parmesan cheese for good measure. And because everything tastes better with cheese.
But what I’m really excited to share with you today involves strawberries and Greek yogurt.
I am hooked. Another successful Pinterest find. The instructions are simple:
- Remove tops from strawberries.
- Dip strawberries in Greek yogurt.
- Freeze for 3-4 hours.
- Remove from freezer and thaw slightly.
I’m no expert in the art of dipping fruit, that’s for sure, but they turned out pretty good!
Once I removed the strawberries from the freezer and allowed them to thaw, I sliced them in half.
What do you think? They don’t quite compare to this original photo, but a good first effort.
I topped a few of the strawberries with almond butter for an extra treat. Let me know if you give these a try. They aren’t chocolate-covered strawberries by any means, but they are a fun and healthy way to snack on fruit and yogurt!
Are you on Pinterest yet?
If so, what do you think? I’m finding so many incredible ideas that it may easily overtake Google as my search engine of choice for inspiration. I also love what you can learn from it.
