I’m A Chef! Sorta…

August 26, 2011

I am very excited because I finally have my own “recipe” to share with you! (other than smoothies). It’s Homemade Fruit on the Bottom Yogurt! I tried it out last night with blueberries, and today I’ll show you how to do it with strawberries! I rarely buy fruit on the bottom yogurt because it always has way more calories and sugar than plain yogurt (duh…). But I LOVE mixing in the fruit! So I made my own with fresh berries!

Homemade Fruit on the Bottom Yogurt
serves 1
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 packet sweetener (I prefer Truvia)
Berries or fruit of choice (only a small handful necessary)

Start with some sliced up strawberries (or any berry or fruit of your choice).

Then, microwave the berries for about 30 seconds. Mash them as best you can with a fork or the back of a spoon. Add a packet (or less) of truvia (or another sweetener), mix it up, and the microwave it again for about 15 seconds.

At this point, you can either put the fruit in the fridge or freezer to cool it off. I, however, have been eating it warm, because it tastes more like dessert that way! Whatever the temperature, add 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (or yogurt of choice) and DIG IN!!!

I love mixing it in slowly and getting the big pieces of fruit, and the sweetener added to it gives the fruit juice a more syrupy texture. So good! Ok, so this is a really simple recipe. But it’s the first one I’ve completely made up! I hope you enjoy it!

I also had some blueberry oatmeal for breakfast! 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/4 cup water, handful of blueberries. Microwave for 3 min!

So my goal this weekend is to get control over my life!!! For me, that means tackling my to-do list! I started out this morning with a little coupon cutting…

I considered cutting out the Old Spice coupon… a friend at summer camp used to use Old Spice because it smelled good! Alas, I did not… too risky. I’ll stick to my dove. 

And then I made up my giant to-do list! Please note this doesn’t even include working out or blogging… But don’t worry, some of the things on there are fun! Like going to the farmers market, or watching my Netflix DVD! Gotta return that since I’m switching to only instant streaming… stupid Netflix.

I decided the most important task to start with was cleaning Neville’s fishbowl! In his bowl are a bunch of little plastic purple rocks. I always had just rinsed them off and tossed them back in… Until today I realized how dirty they were! Look at the difference between a dirty one, and one I just cleaned!

So yes, I spent 20 min cleaning each and every rock. Neville better love me. But he was very happy about his clean bowl!

Now it’s time to tackle more of my list, and workout with my trainer at 11am!

Do you prefer getting your chores done during the week and completely relaxing on the weekend, or are you like me and save them all for the weekend?!

    Your to-do list looks exactly like one I would make! I love having fun during the week and then tackling my to-do list on the weekends though if you go out of town one weekend and it can really throw things off.
