As a girl on a new health kick, I've been trying to find ways to get more servings of fruits in my daily diet. I bought some Activia yogurt and just could not get myself to eat it everyday. Don't get me wrong, it is quite good, but I am just not a yogurt girl. So after a little bit of experimenting, I found a way to get a full serving of the yogurt, plus servings of both strawberries and bananas! And the result was absolutely delicious!! To me it tasted just like Jamba Juice.
Here is the recipe for Strawberry Banana Activia Smoothie:
Ingredients (for 2 servings):
10 Frozen Strawberries (wash and de-stem before you freeze!)
2 Strawberry Activia Yogurts
A splash of milk
BLEND IT ALL TOGETHER! It's that simple!
|Ingredients ready to go!|
|Blender before milk and yogurt are added!|
|Blended up and ready to drink!|

So, on one of my earlier posts, Online Shopping on a Budget, I list tons of shops and sites that have clothing and accessories that are similar to the style of Forever 21. Since I'm sure we all love Forever 21, but are kind of sick of it, I thought the list would be useful! However, one of the comments I got brought up a good point. Where are the plus size clothes?? Some of the sites on the list do have plus size clothing, but just browsing through to find it is a pain in the neck (especially if you find cute stuff that doesn't come in your size). So here is a different list of cute plus size sites like Forever 21. Let me know if you have any additions to the list!

Enjoy and please let me know more so I can add them to the list!

While I was trying to get my craftiness flowing, I decided to keep this project simple (so I knew I couldn't mess up!) Actually, that's a little bit of a lie. I did mess up a bit on the full martini glass decorating so I'm just posting the bottom!! :)
All you need is two colored paint pens and a cheap wine or martini glass and voila!

I was just craving a nice, somewhat healthy, easy, BUT different lunch. Turkey sandwiches are getting old, and so instead I put together a combination of a tomato avocado salad and a grilled cheese. The verdict: Deliciously bright and awesome for a simple yet decadent lunch!
2 pieces of whole wheat bread
1/2 of an avocado
Tomatoes of your choice (I used Cherubs)
2 slices cheese of your choice (I used muenster)
Onion salt (or regular salt)
|Wash your tomatoes before you cut them in smaller pieces!|
|Chopped tomatoes and the avocados ready to dice!|
|An easy way to dice avocados: Cut while in the skin and flip inside out!|
|Toss tomatoes and avocado in a bowl and add cilantro and onion salt (or regular salt) to taste.|
|Add a few squirts of lime juice!|
|Butter one side of each slice of bread--make sure not to rip the bread when spreading!|
|Melt butter over medium heat in a frying pan.|
|Place bread in frying pan, butter side down!|
|Place one piece of cheese on each slice of bread.|
|Add your tomato/avocado mixture to one side.|
|With a spatula, flip the bread with cheese only onto the top of the sandwich.|
|Let each side brown to your liking! Be careful when flipping not to lose too much of the tomato/avocado salad!|
|Ready to serve! And more importantly, READY TO EAT!|
