I seem to be in a Blueberry Bliss lately. It’s great to have a favorite food with so many healthy benefits! I have read that blueberries are super high in antioxidants, a great brain food, great for your eye sight, great for our cardiovascular system, and you can freeze them without losing any of their health benefits!
Some of the fresh blueberries that I have had lately have been super plump and juicy!
One of my favorite things in my freezer right now is my gigantic bag of frozen blueberries!
I have discovered that if I put one cup of frozen blueberries along with 1 packet of sweetener (I’m currently loving the raw stevia) in a bowl in the microwave for about 2 minutes, it makes a great topping for my oatmeal, my pancakes or my french toast! No need for any butter or syrup with the sweetness that these berries provide!
Breakfast yesterday was soooo good!
Fresh Blueberries all alone….
Fresh Blueberries on top of some Nut Butter Toast or English Muffin!
Frozen Blueberries in the microwave, then as a topping for my Oatmeal!
Mixed in with other berries…..
As a “To Go” snack!
Did I mention Fresh Blueberries alone??
Frozen Blueberries blended in my smoothie made with Almond Milk…. or Coconut Milk??
Here are yesterday’s eats…….
French Toast with Warm Blueberry Topping
Quinoa, Grilled Chicken, Grilled Zucchini
This was Mike’s dinner leftovers from the night before. I used the last of the grilled chicken I had in the freezer for his dinner, while I had the last of the veggie burgers for my dinner. After this meal, I did pick up a few things at the store! 🙂
1 C. Coconut Milk, 1 Frozen Banana
1 T. PB2, 1 Raw Stevia Packet
One Un-Pictured Banana
I bought two banana’s along with a few other things at the grocery store yesterday afternoon.
Mini Turkey Burger Quesadilla
Un-Pictured Mini Cheese Quesadilla
I haven’t had any tortilla’s in the house, that weren’t Gluten Free, for a long time! These are 1 PointsPlus. I went to the grocery store for a few things and I was STARVING!!!
Dinner was odd, but I was so hungry at 5:00 and we don’t usually eat until about 7:00. I found one last turkey burger in the freezer, so I heated it up, then cut it in half, and made a baby quesadilla burger with a little provolone cheese. I added a few carrots, and thought I would eat a small dinner later with Mike.
Still really hungry and loving the crispy tortilla I’d just eaten, I put a little cheese in one more tortilla and made a mini cheese quesadilla, but failed to take a picture of it.
By the time Mike got home, (after 7:30) I wasn’t super hungry, so I made this fruit bowl with some fresh raspberries, blackberries and the other banana that I bought yesterday! While I didn’t eat all of my points for the day, I’m certain that I consumed plenty of calories.
