Saturday Snapshots — Munchies Edition

We’ve been eating a lot of tasty treats since I hid the scale. Funny how that works, eh? :) Just kidding! I don’t even mean diving headfirst into the ice cream, I just mean I’ve been cooking again without weighing and measuring, and boy has my brain enjoyed it.

Here are some of the good eats you may have seen this week via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram (hollywouldifshecould):

Tuesday we did a little experiment in my house called “Will He Eat It: Salmon Edition.” You see, Garrett doesn’t really love cooked fish. He had a bad fish stick incident as a child and to this day cooked fish kind of skeeves him. But he loves sushi. So weird, right? So I’m always on the prowl trying to find cooked fish he will tolerate. Well guess what — he loves Salmon Burgers from Costco! Thanks for the suggestion, Internet. It was your brilliant minds that made me try them. I mixed up a mayo free version of this, plopped it on top and called it dinner.

Wednesday it was Sausage & Peppers!
This is literally a 20 minute meal and I love to throw it together on nights that we go to the gym. We were supposed to have it for lunch on Wednesday, but I ended up skipping lunch that day and Garrett had to work, so we stole it for dinner instead of making a more Chicken Stir Fry. It’s just your fave sausage browned up nice and crispy, tossed with sauteed peppers and onions. Then cook up something green on the side (zucchini was our green of choice that night.) It comes together so quick it makes Rachael Ray’s head spin.

I worked out on Thursday morning at 5 am, took a quick shower and headed off to work only to realize I had forgotten my breakfast. Sad Friggin Panda, let me tell you. And then my phone buzzed and it was a text from my friend and workout buddy Cole who works in the building next door to mine:

And I came back to my desk with a couple of these babies and they were as good as they look!


She doesn’t have a strict recipe, but lucky for you I know a gal who can hook you up with a good Paleo Blueberry Crumble Muffin Recipe.

Before I wrap this up, it’s Confession Time: I really need to stop buying string cheese because it is too damn easy going down. Hold me to it, would ya internet?

String Cheese: I wish I knew how to quit you....

It’s my favorite thing to have Post Workout — something about its saltiness is just PERFECT. Garrett’s favorite Post Workout Treat got a makeover this week too with the new Unsweetened Coconut Almond Milk I found at the grocery store.


It was a nice switch up from just the Unsweetened Vanilla, and I highly recommend it! We’ve already purchased two more containers. That boy can really put down the protein shakes.

Anyway, that’s all the the fare I photographed this week. And wouldn’t you know it, now I’m hungry.

    Those salmon burgers-do they taste fishy? I am not a fan of fish that tastes like fish 😉 We eat lots of grilled salmon that my husband catches-but it would be nice to have a quick salmon burger sometime.

      You know, I’m not a fan of fishy fish either — it’s a consequence of the fact that I didn’t even *try* fish until I was 23 years old. Can you even believe that? So since I’ve only started eating fish in the last decade, I’m not really EXTREME about it. :) Anyway, I didn’t find them fishy to eat at all, and Garrett ATE them, so that’s a real testament! What I loved about them was that they are wild salmon, the burgers are gluten free, and you cook them straight from frozen. I mean for a prepackaged food, you can’t beat it. I’m just glad it tasted good. I bought them from Costco, they were these: (but I feel like the price listed there is WAY MORE than I paid for them…)

    Thanks Holly, I will look for them at Costco. The funny thing is I am in Alaska, and have tons of salmon in the freezer, but would like the ease of these.

    I have made at least three versions of salmon burgers and whereas I love them all, I just can’t get the man on board. No idea why when they are DELISH.

    OMG! That is the Exact Same Dill Dip I’ve been making for years! I love that stuff – and it’s the only thing I’ve ever seen the Beau Monde seasoning in! It is wonderful with Wheat Thins (but I don’t think you eat those). :)

      It’s probably a dip that came on the back of a box of crackers or something! :) My mom always made it and she has quite a few recipes in her repertoire that are off the back of boxes. As for Beau Monde…between the two of us we should be able to put our heads together and find another use the for the stuff!!! :)

    Where did you find the coconut almond milk? My usual grocery doesn’t carry it. :-/

    I think I’ve thrown the B/S (ha)on some vegetables when roasting before – I don’t remember the flavor really sticking out though cuz I’ll usually use a variety of things! I’ll have to try it again!





What I’m Pinning

  • Delicious tender chicken meatballs, smothered in sauce and cheese, and baked until bubbly hot. This new twist on an Italian classic is easy to make and will quickly become a family favorite! I prepare a lot of recipes. Many make it to the blog, some make it to the garbage, and some find a special …
  • Tortoiseshell Balayage Lob | Say farewell to foils—forever. Some personal realizations occur when sitting under a red-tinted hood of heat and wearing enough foils to make contact with an alien mothership. Sure, you can get six weeks of color before growing roots plant you back in that salon chair; but you can also end up with brassy zebra stripes that bring back memories of ultra-glossy Lip Smackers and frosted cream eye shadow.
