let's talk food

Recently I have had three crazy food cravings.  (No it's not because of that "p word" reason that might jump into your mind.  Not us.  Not right now.) I just love food.  Always have.  I think I've found some new foods I like recently because, although we eat pretty healthy at home, we're trying to branch out and eat even healthier.

Let's start with one food that I have never been able to stand.  Yogurt.  It's one of those things I have tried randomly throughout my life thinking, oh maybe I will like it this time.  I tried every flavor and every brand.  However, recently I tried Yoplait YoPlus yogurt.  One word--"yum".  I love this stuff and am stocking up on it when it's on sale (which good ol' Wally World often has it cheapo for a 4-pack).  Every flavor I have tried has been so yummy.  (Yoplait's new Greek yogurt is great too.)

The second food is one I've always been just okay with...green peppers.  Recently I've found a love for them raw.  Dip them in ranch dressing and you've got a great snack!

Third recent food that stocks our refrigerator is feta cheese.  This stuff is wonderful on just about anything...cold pasta salads, warm and light pastas, salads, etc.

So let me introduce you to my current favorite at-home salad that usually graces my plate's presence at least a couple times a week:


romaine lettuce
green peppers
pepper and sea salt croutons
feta cheese crumbles
Ken's lite Northern Italian with Basil & Romano dressing

Just a nice little change to a normal salad.  What are your favorite salad toppings? I would love to hear more ideas!  Or maybe you've found a new "love" for a food recently...would love to hear about it, too!

Sidenote--I am super excited today because I won Lindsey's TOMS shoes giveaway!! What an awesome giveaway that I am so grateful to win! You can read more about TOMS on my post barefoot. to understand my excitement!

Pin It!


  1. A. Totally jealous that you won the give away. And b. I have tons of yoplait coupons from my dad I'd be happy to share.

  2. I LOVE feta cheese! It is so delish! You should buy some pita's and make a sandwich with lettuce, meat if you like, feta and dressing. Yummm!
    Congrats on the giveaway...I've been thinking about some Toms!

  3. i'm so jealous that you won the tom's giveaway! only in a nice way, though. ; ) congrats!

    your salad sounds delish! last night i made a new salad that i now adore and what to eat for every meal. it had a lemon poppyseed dressing (trust me, it tastes better than it sounds!), candied pecans (i guess those are not so healthy!), and dried fruit (cranberries, apricots, strawberries). mmmm!

    i tried yoplus and got a mouthful of a big green piece of thick hard mold. needless to say, i threw the rest out and haven't tried it since. i'm glad to know it really is actually good! : )
