Trader Joe’s Curried Harvest Grains

This recipe is super easy and quick to make. It’s one of those side dishes that even my four year old loved. Ready for how easy this is? Here we go:

  • 1 1/4 cup (half package) of Trader Joe’s Harvest Grain Blend
  • 1/4 cup Trader Joe’s Thai Yellow (or red) Curry Sauce
  • 1 1/2 cup water

Add curry sauce to water and bring to a boil. Then, add the harvest grains and bring back to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer covered for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and serve immediately. I put mine over a few sprigs of fresh arugula for garnish. Enjoy!

Found a New Blog: Recipes

I found a new blog that I like (Rachel Schultz). It’s full of great recipes. She had me at “roasted strawberry & chocolate brie grilled cheese.” This one looks delish too. So delish that I’ll be giving in a whirl this weekend. Thank you, Rachel. (Click the link below for the recipe). Let me know if you try it and how it turns out.

My Fit Foods – Here we go!

My brothers rave about My Fit Foods. They live in Austin and swear it helps you maintain healthy eating habits. So, Ryan and I popped into our nearest store and checked it out. We drank the Kool-Aid and now we are hooked. We aren’t going to do their 21 day challenge (hello … $600 – $700) but instead we are buying their lunches and dinners for 21 days and making our breakfast and snacks at home.

So far, so great! I’ve lost 2lbs in 4 days and we both feel so much lighter. 90% of their products are gluten-free and all of it is healthy and fresh (never frozen). I sound like I work for them or something … I’m just really happy that it’s working and we’re feeling better.

Right now we’re using it like a grocery store – picking out our foods every three days and bringing it home. I’m eating the ‘small’ portions and Ryan is eating the ‘medium’. You heat up the food for about 1 to 2 minutes and it’s already seasoned and spiced up for you – and it is truly is delicious. The best part? It’s been a huge time saver in the kitchen.

Ryan and I are done with our self-made ‘challenge’ on January 16 (his birthday). I’ll send you  more honest feedback along the way and yes – two days into this challenge I was starving! But, I’m doing better now.
