Tasty Tuesday

My weekend finds this week were all food related.  I had a hungry weekend or I just made a trip to Trader Joe's.  Hmmm.

I will start with the healthiest eats from this weekend, a Green Monster smoothie.

I originally heard about these from Caitlin over at Healthy Tipping Point...she makes them all the time.  Her recipe came from this site: Green Monster Movement and my recipe is an adaptation of some of the recipes I read.

Green Monster:
  • 1 banana
  • 1 Tbsp Justin's chocolate hazelnut butter
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 7 ice cubes
Throw all the ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth.  Enjoy!

Don't let the color fool you, it is very tasty.  Try it...you won't be sorry.

I mentioned in yesterday's post that the husband and I hit Trader Joe's on Sunday for some super bowl snacks.  We found some very yummy new things.


My pick...these tiny pizzas.  They are delicious.  I added green olives to mine, but they were good without them too.  The serving size is 3 of the little pizzas for160 calories.  Yum.


The husband's pick...mini chicken tacos.  Also very good, but not as low in calories.  I served them with fat free Greek yogurt (great sour cream substitute) and salsa.

We also picked up some spinach and kale Greek yogurt dip and mini pita crackers.  It was a tasty game day.

What kinds of football snacks did you enjoy this weekend?

I did pick up one not edible item at TJ's.

Have a wonderful day!


  1. I wish we had a Trader Joe's in our area :( We actually roasted two chickens that we picked at on game day. Plus, some chips and dip, which is not something we have very often.

  2. I've never been to a Trader Joe's. We don't have such shopping anywhere near us. I would like a Whole Foods. I'm not sure I could get past the green of the drink, but I'll bet it is good! Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog. Have a great week!


Thank you for stopping by! Your comments make my day and I do my very best to respond to each and every one of them.
