Tea Time

Are you a tea drinker?

When it comes to liquids, I’m pretty much just a water and alcohol drinker.

This morning, however I was feeling pretty sleepy so I decided to try a little caffeine.

I used black tea that one of my best friends brought back from England, so I made sure to hold out my pinky out in between sips. 😉

Jumping topics a bit, here are two ways to eat comfort foods healthily:

Mac n Cheese with veggies
Mac n Cheese with mixed veggies

The mac n cheese has whole grain pasta with cauliflower, almond milk, hot sauce, salts and peppers, and of course, cheddar cheese.

No butter. No oil. No white pasta.

I had Tostitos chips with grated cheddar cheese served along side caramelized onions and my veggie mix (spinach, carrots and corn).

Who says your childhood favorites aren’t healthy? 😀

And on a more grownup level, I made a big pot of quinoa and veggies for the week.

As a kid I would have run from this delicious mix!

The additions were corn, black beans, onion, soy sauce, peanut Thai sauce, salt, pepper, and garlic. I was out of broccoli and other greens so I decided to use arugula and random other lettuce leaves to pump up the health factor.

Have a Thankful Tuesday!
