My 28th birthday was this past Tuesday and I decided to create a nice lil' treat for myself before starting the day. I present to you, Black Forest Birthday Breakfast:
In a bowl, I combined:
- 1/2 cup 0% Fage yogurt
- Splenda (or sweetener of choice)
- 1/3 cup No Sugar Added Cherry Pie Filling
- 1 Deep Chocolate Vitatop, warmed in the microwave
- Mash everything together and enjoy.
Dessert for breakfast! So, so good (and under 200 calories). Thanks to the large amount of left over pie filling, I repeated this combo for breakfast this morning and will probably have it again tomorrow. And the next day. And the next day... Why? Because I'm Team Cake.
Side note: I'm really glad Costco started selling Vitatops- MUCH more affordable this way. Another budget-friendly option is to buy the mix on Amazon and make your own!
Now, time to switch gears from sweet to spicy. A few weeks ago, I came across a Ready Set Eat recipe for Buffalo Chicken Chili. Doug made his version, all nice and pur-dy:
Garnished with bleu cheese and celery greens. We used white beans instead of black; the creamier texture of the white beans just seemed to be a better fit. Our version also used chicken breasts (instead of thighs), carrots, onions, extra tomatoes, extra wing sauce, chicken broth and reduced-fat bleu cheese. If you're craving chicken wings, but still want to keep things healthy, you really can't go wrong with this dish! Tofu could be used as well, for a great meatless option.
