Simple recipe alert!
I wanted a recipe to make where I had all ingredients on hand. I almost always have canned tuna, dry pasta, cheese, and frozen vegetables so I made something that contained all of those plus a couple extra goodies.
Enter the classic: Tuna Noodle Casserole! I kept some of the basics, but added my own twist on this simple recipe.
Broccoli and Tuna Noodle Casserole:
- 1 package of whole wheat pasta cooked
- 1 package frozen chopped broccoli, cooked (I cooked in the microwave for 5 minutes)
- 1 can tuna (5oz can)
- 1 can mushrooms, drained
- 1 can cream of mushroom soup
- About 1-1.5 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
- About 1 cup crushed potato chips (or crackers, bread crumbs, whatever you like for added crunch!)
- Salt and pepper to taste
Place all ingredients (minus cheese and chips) in a baking dish and mix well. Top with shredded cheese and bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees. Take out and top with crushed chips and bake an additional 5 minutes.
I really enjoyed this meal! Hot, creamy and delicious! What’s not to love about a dish with chips on it? 😉
Mmm, this was a winner! It was especially great to take for work as left overs. I love a simple recipe and I really love a simple lunch to pack for work! It’s a win win!
Change is Good
This morning I woke up with quite the dilemma: We were out of milk!
I almost always have cereal for breakfast. I love it so much! It’s quick to make and is always delicious. And for me, it keeps me full for a good amount of time (maybe because I always eat a ginormous amount and not the recommended servings size 😉 )
So instead, I decided to change it up and have something else. Change is good! I had a tub of 2% Fage Greek Yogurt in the fridge, so I decided to make a yogurt bowl with a plethora of toppings.
My yogurt bowl included:
- 2% Fage Greek Yogurt
- 1 banana
- 2 kinds of Kashi Cereal: Kashi Flakes and Golden Goodness
- About 1 tbsp real maple syrup (to flavor the yogurt)
- About 1 tbsp peanut butter (Skippy brand Natural with honey)
Along with my yogurt bowl I had some hot coffee with low fat half and half.
I have to say this breakfast was pretty good! I loved the variety of flavors and textures and it kept me full for a good 4 hours until lunch, just like my cereal typically does.
Today’s topic is to discuss my beliefs. Another biggie! Without getting to into things (I want to keep my blog primarily health and fitness related and not too, too personal), I will give you the basics of what I personally believe.
I’ll stem off of what I feel about religion. I am more spiritual in nature and do not follow a specific religion. I do believe in a God and a higher power that is so beautiful and true that it would be inconceivable to compare to anything that is available to us on Earth.
I believe that living this life on Earth is just a part of a greater whole. I think we are here to learn, grow and develop as spiritual beings. I believe we are here to love and spread the word of love.
I think that when we die that it’s actually a celebration. I think living on Earth is tough and difficult (as it should be…we are here to learn and the only way to learn is to experience things, good and bad) and that when we do pass to the other side it should be celebrated. Life goes on.
I’ll end it at that 🙂 Have a great weekend everyone!!!
