Fruit and Yogurt

5 Apr


How can you not love fruit and yogurt? It’s the perfect meal. I decided to live on the edge and have something else besides a hummus wrap for lunch. We have a couple of containers of Brown Cow Vanilla Yogurt (the BEST yogurt in the world) and thought this would be perfect. This was also a great post-run recovery meal, which I felt like I earned it since I shaved a whole minute off my mile!

3/4 cup Brown Cow Vanilla Yogurt
4 strawberries, quartered
1 handful of blueberries
1 handful of blackberries
1 small handful of sliced almonds

Poached Eggs with Roasted Asparagus and Thyme-Garlic Potatoes

28 Mar


We had brinner again last night. Although, this seemed more like a schnazzy dinner to me. I had something else planned but had an epiphany while running, and rearranged my dinner plan to make this. Luckily, it did not disappoint! I could have eaten the entire pan of potatoes!

Poached-Eggs-Roasted-Asparagus-Thyme-Garlic Potatoes-Front

5 yukon gold potatoes, washed and cubed
1 tbsp fresh thyme
3 cloves garlic, mashed (I used a garlic press)
12 asparagus spears, bottoms trimmed
4 eggs
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp butter
salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 350o. Place the asparagus in a baking dish, drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and toss to coat. Roast in the oven until tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. Combine the cubed potatoes, 2 tbsp olive oil, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper in a large bowl and combine until the potatoes are coated with oil and spices.
  3. Heat the butter in a large pan over medium heat, add the potatoes and cook until golden brown on all sides.
  4. Add the eggs to an egg poacher and cook until the eggs are just tender.

As always, enjoy!

I start every morning off with some version of a green smoothies. They are filling, nutritious and I feel like I’m doing something really good for myself. The beauty of smoothies is that there you have a lot of freedom to do what you want with them. You can use fresh or frozen fruit and different fruit combinations. Honestly, with all the amazing fruit flavors you would never suspect that there is tofu in this shake.

  1. Place all the ingredients, except the steeped green tea and chia seeds into a blender
