Healthier Me.

Lately, I've been trying to eat a little better. I have become obsessed with some things because of this...

Almond Milk. I think soy milk tastes okay, but Almond milk is sooo much better! I'm a big fan of Almond Breeze's Light Almond Coconut milk. I eat it with my cereal and I have been making super yummy (and low calorie) smoothies with it!

Chobani. I wasn't a fan of Greek Yogurt until I tried Chobani fruit on the bottom Greek yogurt. The fruit seriously makes this yogurt to die for. They have so many flavors - your typical blueberry(my fave), strawberry, raspberry, pineapple, and cherry. But then they have some crazy flavors - blood orange, passion fruit, pomegranate, and lemon. I cannot recommend this yogurt enough!

Mini Sweet Peppers. Everyone at work has been bringing these in with their lunches and I decided to be a copycat and buy some myself. They are a really good and healthy snack. I love them!

Low Fat Cottage Cheese. I have always liked cottage cheese, but now I throw in a handful of grape tomatoes and it makes my cottage cheese 10x better. My husband thinks I am weird, but I don't care, it's delicious.

Egg Salad. I found a low calorie recipe and I have been eating so much egg salad! I can't usually get through a dozen eggs before the expiration date, but since I found this recipe, I've been going through 1/2 dozen a week! I serve this on my new favorite bread (Sara Lee 45 calorie per slice) and this sandwich is only 4 points on Weight Watchers.

Pirates Booty. Best snack that tastes like it should be bad for you, but isn't. This little gem can be found in the organic section and can be pricey, but I have a friend who buys it for me at the commissary every week. It's puffed corn & rice and tastes like popcorn. Yum!

Low Fat String Cheese. Need I say more? It's cheese.

Anyway, I'm not really trying to lose weight, but I have lost 5lbs since trying to be healthier. I still enjoy my processed foods and I definitely and not healthy 24/7, but I really am trying to eat more fruits. I eat a lot of veggies, but I am not a fruit person. Hope everyone is doing well!
