Snacks and Leftovers re-imagined
I love sweet things and they are a tricky business when you are trying to be healthy. One of my tips to eating sweets is to pair it with a glass of hot tea or coffee because that is going to help you fill up so that the small amount of dessert doesn't make you sad and try and sneak in more. I skipped my pre workout snack yesterday and my dinner was low enough I could add in a small dessert! SO I had half of an english muffin toasted with a little peanut butter and a tbsp of chocolate chips. Microwave once you put your chips on so they are melty. I freeze my chocolate to keep it fresh (and to eat it frozen cause its so good that way!) so I put mine in for 30 seconds. This with a hot cup of coffee was 100 calories well spent! The Picky Eater. I didn't actually read the recipe MY BAD but I did see that it clearly was broth with white beans and kale and that sounded like awesome. I have not had kale yet so I am pretty excited. My version tonight has tomato and turkey meatballs!(leftover from the filling for my cabbage last night) First of all I chopped and onion and cooked it in my soup pot with 1 tsp olive oil. Then I added the chopped kale just to wilt it a little more and make it taste better than just straight boiled. I do this with all veggies for soup.
