Savoring September one bite at a time..

Hello September~! It's been a lonely summer on this blog~! In the past months a lot has happened.. I got engaged~! As well as slimmed down a few sizes. Since I have been busy wedding planning and spending time with my fiance I have minimal time in the kitchen. I've stopped making smoothies and started snacking on whole fruit and other easy snacks.

Here's two of my favorite hunger busters:

Cottage cheese with sliced avocado on top, sprinkle with pepper~! enjoy.
Cinnamon raisin english muffin with cream cheese and honey~! mmm sweet.

I'm a big advocate of eating fat and protein together in meals. I try to eat meat once a day and eat small meals when I get hungry (about every 3 hours.) I have a huge sweet tooth so I try to eat fruit and add honey to dishes to help me from binging on desserts~! I can't wait to share some delicious things to eat in the next few weeks up until my wedding. ;-)

A sweet treat to start the day..

Well it's been awhile since I last posted.. Don't worry I have eaten in the past few months.  I just haven't had the time to post anything delicious! So to start making up for that, I am starting this year's posts with a sweet breakfast surprise.

~ 1 serving per recipe

If you are just making a single serving I would opt for the microwave method.  Combine the first four ingredients in a large bowl and zap it (as my Grandma says) for 3 minutes.  Let it cool in the microwave for 1-2 minutes before removing.  Then top with the ground flaxseed, brown sugar, strawberries and last but not least some delicious strawberries! Mmm you will be surprised at how much this tastes like dessert.  If you use vanilla bean in the whipped cream it makes all the difference! Enjoy~ ;-)
