What I Ate Last Week: pumpkin Greek yogurt, no bake almond joy cookies and more

I meant to post this last week, but here are the foods I tried October 21-25.

This bowl of hot oats from Love Grown Granola was pretty good. It tasted healthy and really filled me up. I keep finding that I can't really eat a lot in the morning and tend to do better with bringing a small snack to work to eat at around 10 a.m. 

I am in love with these tortillas from Trader Joe's!

I have been craving vegetarian refried beans lately, so I put them on the chia seed tortillas with a handful of spinach and some hot sauce on top. Tortilla + beans = a complete protein, so that's a score for this vegetarian!

I made Tina from Carrots N' Cake's No-Bake Almond Joy cookies and they are so addictive and tasty!

Craig went up north to help his parents close down their cabin and he brought me home a Caramel Apple. Yum!

I have to force myself to eat bananas vs. just blending them into a smoothie. I put banana slices on a Pumpkin Spice english muffin with peanut butter. It was a filling and tasty breakfast.

The other thing I am addicted to lately is hard boiled eggs. I kept putting them on top of spinach for lunch all week. I tried Trader Joe's pumpkin greek yogurt and it was just ok. I wouldn't buy it again. I'd just add some canned pumpkin and spices to plain greek yogurt instead.

I finally purchased a little bottle of Frank's Red Hot sauce to keep at my desk at work. I actually like putting it on top of the eggs as a salad dressing. I know, it's a bit strange.

What foods have you been loving lately? I definitely go through periods where I am addicted to certain things, but my staples lately have been hard-boiled eggs, spinach and I never go a day without eating yogurt of some type (greek or non-greek).


  1. I wasn't a fan of that yogurt either, I was so excited and then it was a big let down! I have been drowning all of my foods in hot sauce and salsa lately, I can't get enough spice.


  2. Awww, I was all ready to go out and buy some of that yogurt! But right now I seem to have a constant open container of pumpkin so I really could make my own...
