Foodie Friday

I wanted to make a post showing some of the things I've been eating. I've cleaned up my eating a lot in this past month. Lately, I've been craving chicken caesar salads, and I made a strawberry banana smoothie with unsweetened vanilla almond milk tonight that was so good! Too bad I didn't get a picture of it though. I'll be making it again tomorrow I'm sure.

Last weekend I made a taco soup in the Crock-Pot.

This was so good. I adapted it from The Frugal Girls recipe. I used chicken breasts instead of ground beef and no salt added canned foods. I got 7 one cup servings out of the pot. I only have one more jar as I have eaten one every day this week (I ate one cup on Sunday also). 

I found a yogurt that I love also, Oikos Greek Triple Zero Strawberry. I add in granola I found at Target and it makes an awesome afternoon snack. 

(My granola is almost gone!)

Another snack I've been enjoying is carrot chips and a Greek yogurt Ranch dressing that I saw on Christina's blog Love Yourself Healthy. You wouldn't even know this is made from Greek yogurt. It is yummy!

Finally, my simple chicken Caesar salad. I found some Jack Daniels chicken strips that are delicious. I had this as a side salad for dinner Wednesday and Thursday for lunch. 

Just a sampling of what I've been eating this week. Still making good choices!


  1. I'm so glad you like the dressing! Isn't it great?!? I also tried a dip by the same brand (called "Opa-dipidy" or something like that); I got the cucumber dill dip, and oh my gosh it's literally one of the best veggie dips I've ever had. I found it in the same place as the dressing. It's no longer torturous to eat healthy dips with veggies!

    1. I saw that one too, but didn't know how it would taste. Thanks for the recommendation. I'll pick some up today to eat with my peppers and broccoli!
