I’ve never been a big beef jerky person, but I had been wanting to try this since Hungry Girl has recommended it several times. I finally had my first taste because Hungry Girl gave away free samples on her book tour – yay! I liked it so much that I bought the assortment pack so we could try all the flavors. Seriously, this stuff is amazing. We liked every single flavor. We have our favorites …

Panera Broth Bowls

In Food Finds by Tanya7 Comments

Have you tried the new Broth Bowls from Panera yet? What are you waiting for? ¬†They are seriously delicious, super filling, and made with the best ingredients. ¬†The bowls are Asian inspired and contain an umami soy-miso broth. ¬†The “soy-miso” part had me concerned because I’m not a huge fan of miso soup, but they taste nothing like miso soup. ¬†I enjoy them so much that I’ve ordered one the past three times I’ve been …

Smart Ones Oatmeal

In Food Finds by Tanya2 Comments

If you’re pressed for time, the Smart Ones Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal is a great alternative to fast food! With 5g of fiber and 5g of protein, this is a choice you can feel good about. The package includes two individual servings of oatmeal. I will admit that when I ate this a couple days ago, I chose to eat both packages at once for 9 points+. I am used to my pumpkin pie oatmeal and …

Breakfast under $1

In Food Finds by TanyaLeave a Comment

I am SO excited to share this with you! ¬†A few weeks ago I was looking for new ideas on Pinterest and came across this post from The Yummy Life about Refrigerator Oatmeal. ¬†A few months ago I probably would have been turned off by this recipe because I used to think oatmeal had to be hot. ¬†I admit that the idea of cold oatmeal kinda creeped me out at first. ¬†However, I was brave …

Dressing Downer

In Food Finds by TanyaLeave a Comment

Seriously, what is the deal with salad dressings? ¬†Who came up with the idea to take fresh, healthy vegetables and coat them in fat sauce? ¬†And we (as a culture) get so used to it, that we don’t even realize it. ¬†We think we are eating healthy because we ordered salad instead of a burger. ¬†Often times, the burger may have been fewer calories. ¬†Now that’s just crazy. ¬†I had a perfect example of this …

Frisco Melt

In Food Finds by TanyaLeave a Comment

Why, yes, I can have a Frisco Melt for dinner and still stay within my weekly points. I opted for a salad instead of fries, and it was yummy!! ¬†Some days I might feel like “oh, poor me, I had to get the salad….” but I didn’t HAVE to. ¬†I CHOSE to get the salad so that I could indulge on the sandwich and not go over my points budget for the week. ¬†It’s not …

What is your most creative way to serve fruits and veggies?

I am super excited! ¬†Today I ordered a Yonanas machine! ¬†Yonanas turns frozen fruit and other flavorings into a delicious, healthy soft-serve treat. The unit combines frozen bananas and any additional fruit and many other add ins. ¬†It¬†churns the ingredients to produce a treat with the texture of frozen yogurt or soft-serve ice cream, but without the additional fat, sugar, or preservatives. I love the idea of making a dessert out of nothing but fruit. …
