Okay, so I am not the best at getting greens in my diet. (I know I’m not alone. ahem, people!) And, I like spinach alright in salads and stuff, but I can NEVER eat the whole bag of spinach from the store before it goes bad. It goes bad so fast! So… a little while back I had a bag of spinach in my fridge that was going bad. I didn’t know what to do to use it and I HATE to waste. BAM! I came up with this ingenious idea! I puree’d the spinach in my food processor with a little bit of water until it became a green paste (yeah, its creepy looking).
Then, I put the green goop in an ice cube tray and froze it. The next morning, I had Spinach Cubes!! I got the spinach cubes out of the tray and put them in a plastic ziploc bag and stuck them back in the freezer. Easy, instant, serving size spinach! I throw a couple cubes into my smoothies now and I can’t taste the difference, but I know I’m getting some green goodness!

Sometimes it’s hard finding time to make a good breakfast in the morning. This is one of my staples because it is healthy, filling, and pretty quick to make!
I love it so much that I sometimes make it for a quick lunch, as well. (not on the same days that I had it for breakfast, though. haha!)
Another great thing, is that it is a portable breakfast (as long as it isn’t runny in the middle). So you can grab and take it in the car on the way to work. Continue reading
my awesome candy house! must eat all the SUGARS!
Well, December was a crazy month. (food-wise.) I could not stop eating Christmas goodies! I gave some away and I even resorted to throwing some away after Christmas, because I was so sick of having no self control around the stuff!
It’s shameful because I was even having a hard time controlling myself around candies that usually don’t tempt me so much. (hard candies, saltwater taffy, skittles, suckers, etc. I’m generally a chocolate girl)
I told my husband to “hide” a bunch of the candy in his car, so that I wouldn’t eat it. Well, the very next night I was out in his car scrounging for sugar. He is not a very good hider, so it didn’t take much for me to find them. (in the trunk. good try, honey! )
