Since I didn’t get to share my weekend with you due to computer technical difficulties, I thought why not give you a peek in on the grocery loot I picked up Sunday. Swanky boyfriend and I are now living together (!!!), so we have started grocery shopping together as well. We did a bigger shop this weekend to get some staples along with meals for the week.
- Green Peppers
- Blueberries (frozen)
- Banana chips (splurge!)
- Snow peas
- Whole wheat bread
- Coffemate (the boy’s)
- Light Italian dressing (the boy’s)
- Vegetable Broth
There is no better feeling than having lots of delicious and healthy foods at home!! I was so excited to get in the kitchen!
After getting back from the grocery store, I got started on some low fat whole wheat blueberry muffins from Prevention RD to enjoy for the week. Even though I know I should sit down for a nice breakfast in the morning, with this new job, something quick is what’s working for now.
These muffins fit the bill.
Low Fat Blueberry Muffins (from Prevention RD)
- 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 2 cups 100% whole wheat pastry flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups blueberries
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
Preheat oven to 325 F. Combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Mix well.
In a medium bowl, mix eggs, melted butter, vanilla and applesauce.
Apple sauce is a great replacement for sugar, fyi.
Add to the flour mixture and stir until just blended.
Gently fold in blueberries.
Gently is key since I broke a few of the berries..oops!
Scoop batter into 12 muffin tins and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Allow to cool for 10 minutes and enjoy!
These were very good! Now be sure to keep in mind, they are definitely healthy tasting muffins.
My batter seemed to be very thick, but the muffins still turned out very nice and soft.
One muffin is around 150 calories making it the perfect addition to a breakfast or by themselves as snack.
I am looking forward to grabbing these along with fruit for breakfast during the week. Breakfast made easy!
The week is moving along pretty good. Trying to do my best with healthy eating and exercise with a new schedule. You know me and my love of a planned out schedule.
What are your grocery store staples? What is your favorite quick breakfast?
