In the SCA there is an awesome mushroom pie/quiche that i often make for events. It keeps well and is a good way to eat a fast meal. I decided to modify it a bit and make little breakfast bites that are easy to grab and take in the car. I made these a few weeks ago and finally decided to write them up. Here we go!
A little olive oil (for cooking the mushrooms)
1 (10 oz) package baby spinach (instead of the normal parsley – to make it healthier)
1 cup shredded cheese of your choice (I use mozzarella and parmasean split in half)
1 (8 oz package) mini-bella mushrooms, chopped
Salt and Pepper, to taste
Preheat the oven to 375F
Heat a little oil in a large skillet. Saute the mushrooms until they are soft, about 5-6 minutes.
add spinach and cook until it is just wilted, 2-3 minutes. Set aside
In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs until combined. Add the cooked mushrooms, spinach, and cheeses to the eggs. Mix well. Season to taste.
Divide evenly among the 12 muffin cups.
Bake for about 20-23 minutes, or until it’s well set and a tester/toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
keep in a covered tightly Tupperware in fridge and grab one on the go every morning!
1/2 green, 1/2 red, 1/2 tsp each 🙂
Or as i prefer to call them, tiny cabbages!! These are delicious, long as you don’t overcook them 🙂

How can Tuna Salad be healthy you may ask? Well, easy! THis is my favorite kind of tuna salad. It is a meal in and of itself. Pardon the picture, it is prior to addition of lovely red onions to make the food appealing and colorful lol
1 can of tuna
1 cup of brown rice, cooked
1 tablespoon red onions chopped
1 hard boiled egg
2 egg yolks
Put egg yolks into the blender and blend, slowly dripping in olive oil until the mixture is mayonnaise consistency. That’s cause it is mayonnaise lol!
Cook the rice. Combine rice, tuna, onion in a bowl. Crush the hard egg with a fork and also mix it in. Now add the mayo until tuna salad consistency and salt to taste.

It is a brand new year. I know i survived all the food, did you? There were cookies and cakes and pot lucks and brunches and well… yeah. There were things 😀
But that was yesterday. Today there was a workout, 6 miles walked, a reasonably healthy amount of food, and a lot of tea.
With a brand new year, come all sorts of resolutions, and plans. The sorts that we mean to do but never really accomplish for longer then a few days right? Well, no. We can do it. Together.
Join me, contact me on the side link right over there! you know you want to and indeed, can 🙂

As we prep for the holidays, veggies come up. And sometimes, we have not learned form our predecessors how exactly one stir-fries a cabbage. Or what ever else it is. So, here is a little cheat sheet i found.
I’ve often wondered why sometimes I just crave something and I don’t even know what. It’s the weirdest feeling, to crave something and not know what that something is.
The issue of course is that I would then go through the house and eat stuff just to find what I wanted. It’s how candy and chips and snacks got consumed all the time.
When I started drinking Shakeology I though I would eat less junk because I would be full. And that is true. However I mostly don’t have those cravings anymore because I am getting all my vitamins and minerals that way.
No more cravings for this girl!
It is a simple tool no? Well it is a lifesaver. When i get home from work at 6pm and i need meals for the next several days i can turn to this handy devise and it will save me.
Last night i did just that. put everything in and walked away. at 12:30 it was done. portioned out and into the fridge and to bed with me. World saved and no muss no fuss. Or rather, no mess because i use these little guys. Saves me all that cleanup too!
