Peanut Butter and Chocolate Fage

Today's afternoon snack was sweet in more than one way! In my Fage, I mixed peanut butter chips and milk chocolate chips!


What a treat! It sort of tasted like a Reeses Pieces sundae-- it just needed hot fudge and peanut butter sauce!


Lunch was Coconut-Ginger-Amazing-Carrots...


and a half pita filled with deli ham and hummus.


Best.carrots.ever.


A coconut truffle for dessert... I've been on a serious coconut kick lately!


Tonight

I decided to go to Augusten Burroughs's event tonight. Mal is meeting me downtown at 5:00, so hopefully, we'll be able to attend. I'll be sure to report back tonight!

Cinco de Mayo Party Weekend

Mal and I were invited to three different Cinco de Mayo parties tomorrow night. We're going to try to hit two of them, but I really don't like to spread myself too thin with friends on nights like these. I hate feeling rushed, and I'm never able to enjoy myself... plus I'm not a fan of superficial conversations with friends. I'd much rather spend some time talking and catching up. Anyway, I don't like to show up empty-handed to friends' parties/events-- do you guys have any recommendations for fun, "healthy" party food? I'm thinking about bringing Bethenny Frankel's Skinny Girls Margaritas as a cocktail. They sound so delicious and they are low-cal! Any other ideas for party snacks are very much welcome... as well as easy costume ideas! :)

Happy Friday! TGIF!

So glad that you'll be going to that event at the library tonight after all!

You just made me want to go buy pb cups from vendo... but due to the fact the trail mix attacked again today, I will hold myself back... maybe...

I have no party ideas, sorry! But I hate being rushed around when I'm supposed to be having fun - it takes the fun out of it!!

Just stumbled onto your blog this week from EatLikeMe. I must say I love it! I love that you actually EAT! Not only that, you eat when you are hungry, and you give in to your sweet tooth in such a balanced way. As someone trying to get back to normalized eating habits, your blog is a true inspiration to eat healthy and balanced without being bored out of my mind or wanting to chew my arm off!

YAY Augusten Burroughs! Have fun :)

Do you sweeten the yogurt at all before you put the chips in?

Thank you for being so real and down to earth...its very refreshing. :)

Just thought I'd let you know I appreciate your great blog and healthy balance of food and life in general. :)

Monica,

No sweetener today-- the chips were plenty sweet for me!

chocolate and peanut butter always work well together—yummy.

I love my Fage! What a great idea to put PB and chocolate chips in it! I usually drizzle in some honey, but chocolate is soooo much better.

Those carrots look delicious too!
