A healthy and divine dessert

Since Craig and I were both off of work today, we just kind of approached the day in a leisurely fashion.

I listened in on a Institute for Integrative Nutrition webinar which promoted the program and answered questions from the audience. It was informative and well thought out. I am just not sure I want to spend that kind of money on another degree (even though I need to spend it on some type of program in order to make a career change).


Lunch was a big salad, as you may already know if you entered my OXO giveaway! Keep the entries coming and thanks for your responses so far. Love reading about everyone's favorite salad combinations.


Since it's that time of the month, I can't get enough chocolate today. I had a couple of pieces of this for dessert. I gave my mom a bar for her b-day yesterday and she enjoyed it too.


After lunch, we went to Batteries Plus to get my car battery tested (they do it for free there, whether or not you buy a battery). We found the store to be busy with customers and friendly sales people to help them. I did need a new battery within the next year, so I bit the bullet and bought a new one. They installed it there and the installation was totally free and quick. I ended up getting a pretty good deal on with a coupon I printed off the web, so I was happy. My car started up much more nicely once it had a new battery to power it with! I know this has nothing to do with healthy living, but I thought I would just give a nice little review on our positive experience at Batteries Plus. :)

Then it was time to watch the storms come in. We got pounded a bit this afternoon, but nothing like the flooding they're experiencing north of us.


Dinner tonight was our favorite pizza from Trader Joe's.


And my dessert was INSANELY FANTASTIC. I won some Orange, Lemon and Vanilla stevia drops from NuNaturals through Clare's blog. I got the idea for my dessert from her giveaway post. I just combined some Fage plain greek yogurt, a few lemon stevia drops and strawberries. I haven't been this crazy happy with a dessert in a long time and it's super healthy to boot! I kept saying "mmmm" every time I took a bite! I can't wait to make this again.


Time for a walk outside! It's the perfect time of night. It's cooling off and the birds are all chirping so happily. Aaah, I love spring.


  1. so glad you loved it!! my treat tonight was greek yogurt, cocoa powder, and vanilla nunaturals!

  2. I don't mind stevia and I bet the flavorings were great. I like to put stevia in plain yogurt too.
