Sweet Potato Biscuits

Thanks for all of the well wishes on the job yesterday πŸ™‚ Day 1 was VERY long but extremely productive. I trained for most of the day and then did a lot of the things on my own! For those of you who asked I took a Sales and Event Manager position within walking distance of our apartment. The walk is about .7 miles so i”ll be getting a little added exercise to my daily routine!

Yesterday’s meals were rather boring – Since I worked til almost 9pm I ate lunch and dinner at work (and it’s free, score!)

Breakfast: Special K Vanilla Almond – I know this isn’t new but it’s my new favorite! SO delicious

Lunch: Mixed Greens with goat cheese, candied almonds, dried cranberries, sliced pears and grilled chicken

Dinner: Romaine w/ red onion, cucumbers, tomatoes and grilled chicken with buffalo sauce

Get used to these red bowls because I have a feeling we’ll be seeing a lot of them.

Yesterday I promised the recipe for sweet potato biscuits so here it is.

Sweet Potato Biscuits


  • 1 lb of sweet potatoes (peeled, cubed and boiled)
  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 1/2 cups of bisquick biscuit mix
  • Add all ingredients to 1 bowl

  • Beat with a mixer

  • Flour workspace

  • Roll out dough and place cup over top to make a circle

  • Bake in oven at 375 degrees on a greased baking sheet for 18 minutes

  • Serve warm with fresh butter
These are perfect for a BBQ meal, a sunday dinner feast or a combination of the two πŸ™‚
I have off today for the long hours I put in yesterday but might stop in later to check on my emails…Off to my happy place!!

QUESTIONS: Do you usually pack a lunch or get something while you’re at work??

Everybody loves a freebie

Happy Friday everyone! I have a sweet (pun, ha) deal for you guys today but first I have some good news! Remember those goals I posted yesterday!? Well I tackled the biggest one on the list! I am now officially employed πŸ™‚ Wahoo. It can be extremely stressful searching for a job, re-writing cover letters and filling out endless applications but I am happy to say it’s all over! I start Monday so today is really my last day of freedom. Maybe my boyfriend will want to celebrate and take me to see Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj in Atlantic City tomorrow night??

I’ll be pleading for this when he gets home from work today. It’s worth a shot? πŸ™‚

Yesterday I received a package from Activia. The poor fed-ex delivery man was super confused as he handed the box over because it was addressed to Fashion Fitness Foodie. After I signed, he asked – “so are you fashion?”. I’m really still not sure if he was joking.

I opened the package to see two yogurts inside.

French and Greek Yogurts – Yum! I decided I would have the Greek Yogurt after spin class.

1 container of activia dannon greek yogurt with 1/2 of a banana and some love grown granola.

This yogurt is so thick and creamy it almost reminded me of a mousse! We all know I love my dessert so this gets my stamp of approval.
