I’ve been whipping up a lot of things in the kitchen these days. A lot of easy things.

So obviously, I’m going to show you what I’ve been up to!

Breakfast: Baked

I had so much fun with the Samoa Granola, that I made a cookie dough granola recipe that turned out even better than I imagined. (It’s also low in calories, fat, and sugar… so come back Friday for the recipe!)

I had a banana smoothie (in a bowl, because it’s more fun that way) topped with freshly baked granola for breakfast.

Lunch: Roasted

Ok, the Kashi meal wasn’t roasted. Just popped in the microwave.

It was pretty good… for a microwave dinner (although Kashi meals tend to be expensive… so I feel they should be held to a higher standard…)

I hate it with a side of roasted broccoli, leftover from the night before. I literally just sprayed it with olive oil, added salt & italian seasonings, and roasted until tender. Easy? Yes.

Dinner: Grilled

I re-made a meal that Alexa and I tested out during her visit. Fancy pants grilled cheese.

Fancy Pants Grilled Cheese

  • 2 slices whole wheat bread
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 avocado, sliced thin
  • Ketchup + Siracha for dipping

I just grilled it on my george foreman grill, but it would work just as well in a frying pan. Served with a side of carrots and hummus!

What have you been baking, roasting, or grilling?
