Do you guys use Picnik for your photo editing?

I’m so sad that they’re shutting down on Thursday.  Looks like I’m going to have to find a new editing program.

What photo editing software do you guys use?

Anyway, back to business…these breakfast burritos are awesome!  And they’re healthy.  If I could eat them every day, I would.  Sadly, I live in the dorms and I have a meal plan so I have to eat in the university cafeteria for meals.

If you don’t have a meal plan at a dorm, then you should eat these every day for breakfast.

Directions:

  1. Cook the sausage until browned.
  2. Add in the egg.
  3. Use a spatula to mix the egg and sausage until the egg is cooked.
  4. Microwave tortilla for 10 seconds.
  5. Spread the cheddar wedge on the tortilla, layer spinach, and egg & sausage mixture on top.
  6. Fold and eat!

EatStrong {Veggie & Egg Quinoa}

 
I was fortunate enough to be able to sample EatStrong’s new Trail Mix and Energy Bar. 

The Energy Bar is basically a huge bar of peanut butter with a nice crunch to it and “chocolate chips” (organic cocoa) liberally incorporated throughout, but still only has the average 230 calories most energy .  I didn’t know what to expect when I opened it because the color is a bit off-putting… but the taste is so good!  And it kept me full for a few hours. 

The snack mix includes cashews, flax, sunflower seeds, walnuts, pistachios, almonds, and organic cocoa drops.  The bag has the perfect amount to satisfy and is full of fiber, vitamins, and minerals.  The chocolate drops were obviously my favorite, but the rest was good, too.  The snack mix is a little more calorie dense, but only by a little bit at 260.  It also kept me full for quite a while.

I was pretty impressed with the products and the simple ingredient list.  It’s convenient and delicious.  Try it out!!

I figured I’d keep with the healthy topic and give a healthy recipe today because I do actually try to eat well aside from all the baking I do.
