Food for thought...


So I started thinking about food and eating habits last night.  I was thinking about how I would not sit down and eat half a pint of ice cream in front of a crowd of people, but have no problem sitting at home on the sofa and doing so.  I have to admit I have been going through one of those periods of not eating as healthy as I should, and it let me to think about if the world "knew" (like if I Instagramed everything I ate every day for a week or month) would I eat as poorly as I do some days.  So, in my hope to get healthy again this summer, so I am actually prepared for the upcoming bike and running races I am going to pull out some healthier fruit based recipes over the few weeks.  I am going to start to try and think about whether I would eat XYZ if I had to Instagram it first or would I maybe pick up a summer peach instead.  For the meantime though I leave you with the last time I went healthy baking for a month back in February 2013.  I think I need to make some of the cinnamon raisin muesli asap to kick start this attempt at healthy eating.  It is such a great alternative to oatmeal during the hot summer, and is jam packed with flavor and texture.


I know, I know its not apple season, but bundt cake is just good anytime.  I feel like bundt cakes are just Southern.  That might also be, because they always seemed to pop up at church potlucks growing up.  This one though is a healthier twist on a traditional bundt cake and is loaded with apples...cinnamon apple bundt cake.



I know, I know it June and who really wants lasagna in June?  But it is also race season which means carbo-loading and there is nothing wrong with having some extra veggies too.  This spinach mushroom lasagna is only 293 calories per serving!


And cookies are just good any time of the year.  These are cookies that you can't just eat one though.  The sweet potato, cranberry, pecan cookies are soft and chewy with just a little crunch from the pecans.  

Now what should I make next?
