Good morning… I’ve got a busy day ahead of me which is why I’m blogging at 8:45am! Last night I couldn’t fall asleep and of course I got hungry so I made a little midnight snackwhich I like to call “fake out nachos”… Take 2 corn tortillas and put them in the toaster oven until they crisp up, I like mine REAL crispy so they resemble a tortilla chip. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of reduced-fat Mexican style cheese over tortillas and melt in the micro for about 20 seconds. Top with salsa and enjoy!
Fake-Out Nachos = 200 calorie midnight snack
I can’t take the credit for this dish… I got this idea from Jessica’s Blog. Per usual, I put my own twist on this awesome recipe. Thanks J!
Since I’m currently unemployed, I decided to spoil the crap out of myself and make a gourmet meal of pecan crusted salmon with smashed sweet potatoes.
Instead of using an egg wash, I brushed the salmon with this sweet and sticky BBQ sauce (you can get this at whole foods).
My friend Siera and her fiance LOVE this sauce and pretty much eat it plain with a spoon.
The Sweet Potatoes:
Take 1-2 sweet potatoes (depending on size), peel and cut into 1 inch piecesCook in boiling salted water for about 20 minutes or until fork tender
Mash em’ baby!
I used 1 1/2 packets of truvia, 2 tbsp of butter (the real deal), and cinnamon
Have a great day!
