Healthify Me

Pushing forward with my making my own meals has been going great.  From breakfasts to dinners to snacks, I have been pretty successful at creating foods that I enjoy, are simple, and are not prepackaged!  I can successfully say that from Monday to Friday, I successfully made all of my meals, even if it was just a salad.  No Clif Bars.  No frozen pizza. Lots of fruits and veggies.

Here are some of the things I have been making:

Banana “Ice Cream” – I have seen this all over the blog-o-sphere, but I am just now getting around to making it.  Fairly freaking simple.  Freeze a banana (after first peeling it) and use a blender or food processor to process it until it is the consistency of ice cream.  You can add all sorts of mix-ins.  I added a spoonful of peanut butter and then topped it with chocolate.  Other things that would be perfect: cocoa powder, cinnamon, chocolate chips, fruit, vanilla extract.  Ahhh, the possibilities are endless.  And this is coming from someone who doesn’t like bananas…  One banana makes a pretty good portion.  ❤

I know I didn’t really make this one, but I did make the roasted chickpeas on top! The cinnamon from the chick peas and the peanut butter/rice cake combo is amazing.  Love it!

Big salad with some of my lentil crumbles in there!

Organic puffed rice with Chobani Champions orange vanilla and some candied pecans.  I wonder who sent me these amazing pecans Winking smile?!

Taco bar for Travis and I.  And some potatoes on the side! He had chicken and I had some lentil “meat”.  (Notice a pattern? I’ve pretty much used it on everything this week haha.)

Oh ya, and how could I forget?! Yesterday was my roommate Anna’s birthday as well as my other roommate’s boyfriend, Joe! Alyssa made some celebratory slutty brownies.  Which are to die for.

All in all…great food and a great week of eats! Smile

    I just have to chime in and say how proud I am of you! That is so amazing that you can make such drastic diet changes in such a short amount of time– especially with your busy schedule and the convenience of Clif Bars & such. And I LOVE your idea of the chickpeas on a rice cake!! Keep up the great work 🙂

    And by the way, I’ve never heard of slutty brownies, but HAHAHAHAHAH!

  4. You have been enjoying such great eats lately Nikki, I am so proud of you for your choices! Even the brownies (love the name btw!) it’s all about moderation and balance!! I need to try roasted chick peas still!

  5. It’s definitely a challenge to make everything & not resort to pre-made/pre-packaged foods!

    I NEED to try the banana ice cream & OMG that brownie looks amazing!

  6. Lovin’ the healthy eats….so fresh! I am a huge lentil lover, I have them in my lunch almost everyday, for sure my favorite grain!!
