Just watched this documentary earlier this week. LIFE. CHANGING.
If you have Netflix, I recommend you watch this documentary immediately.
Essentially, the documentary is about how the food being sold to us in grocery stores are basically setting us up for failure. There are a lot of different categories that they jump into, all are very eye-opening.
I can tell you right now, I have never thrown a Coke Zero away faster in my life then while I was watching Hungry for Change.

Alright. I know, I know. I have been pretty MIA for the last week or so, and for that I apologize. This seems to be somewhat of a habit lately, huh? Again… oops! Sorry.
Let me explain. I have just had 5 wonderful days away from work. My job decided to be AWESOME and gave us 4th of July off AND the Thursday and Friday after that off too. ALSO the time between Christmas and New Years as well. Man, gotta love it here. However, I have been SLACKING off big time these last few days. I have been alluding to it in my last couple posts, and I am not proud. This morning though, I am back on track (so far) with my melon and banana breakfast medley.
So, because I am completely narcissistic, let’s talk about my weekend!!
(Caution, this is the LONGEST blog post on the planet. Seriously, it’s obnoxious)
Today, I am going to showcase yet ANOTHER recipe from Skinnytaste.com
That girl seriously knows what she is doing. It’s crazy. This week, I decided to set myself up for success by finding a breakfast thing I could make for my mornings. Because I like bread so much, I (not surprisingly) chose these chocolate chip buttermilk scones.
This is what it looks like on her website:
And here is what it looks like in REAL life. Mmmmmmmmm…..
They are about 200 calories a piece (or 5+ per scone) AND you get to eat chocolate and bread. Just wonderful.

It’s the common struggle. Working a desk job, no doubt, can easily turn into a very unhealthy life. You are trapped in an office for 8-9 hours or more a day, with lots of stress and very little movement. And once you are out of your corporate cage, you have lots of other things to do, which a lot of times takes away from setting up our lives to be healthier ones.
(there are at least 5… 6 if you count the picture of my dog, named R2)
I know from personal experience how difficult it is to work in an office. Many times there are cake and candy and other unhealthy meals and snacks that can throw you off. Read more
The first post in my “favorite foods” and I picked a good one to start with.
First off though, let me start by saying that this is in no way a recipe blog. I get my oh-so-delicious recipes off the interwebs just like everyone else. However, I will direct you and recommend delicious recipes, and give 100% full credit to the person that created said delicousness.
Now that that is out of the way, let’s get on with it.
Vegetables got ya down? Need a little something sweet? Maybe a little…. cheesecake? (oh, i went there). Well, no need to fear! Gina from Skinnytaste.com is here to save ALL of our lives.
Let me introduce to you, my best friend, the Red, White and Blueberry Cheesecake Cupcakes:

Work with a lot of people who enjoy office snacks, but don’t enjoy gaining weight? Perfect! Make them this little gem. She uses vanilla greek yogurt and low-fat cream cheese, and it literally tastes just like cheesecake. Make a batch of these, and you have an 80 calorie dessert for the whole week! (Or for a day if your me….)
