A Few Food Favorites!


I went to the gym this morning and when I got home I was STARVING and my normal morning Peach Activia yogurt was not going to do it!  I bought some frozen fruit last time I went to the grocery to make smoothies so that is just what I fixed.  It was DELICIOUS.

Do you remember the hand mixer infomercials? I used to be amazed when this infomercial came on and how they made whipped cream straight from milk with just this mixer.  Of course I was about 6 when this came out and have always wanted one.  Well my dreams came true! When Dave and I moved in together he brought his hand mixer!! 20 years later I am just as excited about the hand mixer.  It makes amazing smoothies with  NO mess!!

Strawberry, Mango, Pineapple Smoothie

1 cup Skim Organic Milk

1 cup low calorie Orange Juice (I like Tropicana's Trop50) 50% less calories and sugar

1 cup of Light Peach Activia Yogurt

1 cup frozen fruit ( I love mango, pineapple and strawberry)
Optional- scoop of protein powder

Blend together!


It is pretty filling as well!

Tonight Dave and I went to look at a few houses and came accross a cute little Italian place off HWY 100 in Nashville.  It was called Bria Bistro Italiano.  It was very good!  I had the flatbread with garlic, asparagus and prosiutto and Dave had the lasagna.  His was really good but I only allowed myself one bite.  The flatbread I ordered was pretty small but just enough that it didnt ruin my workout this morning!  I would reccommend this place for a weeknight dinner out.  Everyone was very polite that worked there and their specials sounded AMAZING!  I will certainly go back again!

More wedding talk tomorrow!
