Friday is here my friends and it feels gooood. I’m working til 12 then I have another wedding filled weekend!! One of my best friends is getting married and I’m in the wedding so its sure to be a busy one.

If you are a fan of Fashion Fitness Foodie’s facebook page you would’ve saw a status I posted about 3 weeks ago that read “When I hit 50,000 page views I’m going to do a giveaway!” Well, I hit 50,000 about a week and a half ago but am a huge slacker or what I like to call “really busy” so it had been put off til today.

Oh, Oh, Oh…It’s Magic

Happy Friday girls (and guys)! The weekend is here, the weather is warm (50 degrees means windows down) and I’ve got lots to accomplish! My weekend should be anything but relaxing…but such is life!

This morning I wanted to test out my first Chobani so I reached in the fridge with my eyes closed and out came a Honey Flavor.

all of my pictures of shadows today…not sure why!

I knew I wanted to do something more than just eat yogurt out of the container so I went on their website and found a recipe for Honey Scented Blueberry Muffins. I changed around a few things to make them even healthier than they already were and they came out fantastic! No oil, eggs, or added sugar which is always a plus! I tallied up the stats for you, but only because it’s Friday and I’m in a good mood πŸ™‚

Calories – Serving size 1 muffin: 104 calories, 0 grams of fat, 22 grams of carbs, 4 grams of fiber and 3.5 grams of protein

I’ve always loved muffins but after seeing the stats for them at a chain breakfast drive-thru *coughDunkinDonutscough* (470 calories, 17 g of fat, 73 grams of carbs, 38 sugars) I’ve decided that I will no longer be ordering one of those… I’m just as satisfied with my color changing muffins! OK, I’m sure you’re all hoping I shut-up now and show you my magic muffins…so here you go πŸ™‚

Magic Blueberry Muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 C whole-wheat pastry flour, plus 1 Tbsp flour reserved
  • 1/2 C whole wheat flour
  • 6 tsp NuNaturals Stevia Fiber Baking Blend
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp iodized salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp + 2 tbsp warm water EnerG Egg Replacer
  • 3 Tbsp Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 1 tsp real vanilla extract
  • 1 C Honey 0% Chobani Greek Yogurt
  • 1 C blueberries, frozen
  • 1/2 C Unsweetened Almond Milk

Directions

Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat oven to 375Β°F. In a small bowl add Ener-G and warm water and set to side. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, Stevia, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon.

In another bowl, whisk together egg mix, applesauce, vanilla and Chobani.

In a small bowl toss the blueberries with reserved flour until lightly coated, add to egg mixture.

are you tired of my winnie the pooh spoon yet?

Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture, using a spatula fold ingredients together just until dry ingredients are moistened. Be careful to not over mix the batter, as it will cause the batter to be slightly stiff and not smooth.

Purple Batter!

Violety-Gray batter?

Line muffin pans with paper muffin cups, spray lightly with non-stick spray. Fill muffin cups half way and place in oven.

BLUE batter!

Bake at 375Β°F for 12-20 minutes until a toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean.

Green Muffins!?

Excuse the 100 year old muffin pan.

It’s a green monster muffin!

Serve with a dollop of Chobani Honey Greek Yogurt or The Bees Knees Peanut Butter.

These were so good I decided to have one for breakfast and one for dinner πŸ™‚ I love living solo but I now have 10 blueberry muffins and 3/4 of a banana bread loaf in my freezer because I bake faster than I can eat (well really but not really). Anyone wanna come over for breakfast? πŸ˜‰

Call me crazy but I wanted to try another Chobani flavor for a snack today… I grabbed the Black Cherry and did a little taste test. I used half a container of the Black Cherry Chobani and half of a homemade protein granola bar. This particular one had fruit on the bottom so I did a quick mix before scooping it into a separate bowl. 3 words – Smooth and Creamy. To be honest, I’m not even a cherry kind of girl and I really enjoyed this! I think adding the granola was kind of like having a dessert – Cherry Cobbler maybe? Healthy pie… I might be on to something here!

Lunch was a can of tuna, a green apple and a handful of raisins mixed and placed in lettuce cups. I’m finally out of bib lettuce – The container lasted me 2 weeks! Every timeΒ I make tuna at work the cat rubs against me until I share. I never knew cats were table beggers!

Gym consisted of 30 minutes on the arc trainer (SO HARD for me!?) and 10 on the stairmaster plus 10 minutes of abs when I got home. I hate doing abs at the gym because there is never enough room so I stick with my on demand videos.

Time for my favorite FRIDAY!

3 of my favorite YouTube videos I’ve seen this week… If you are looking for a good laugh definitely check these out!

Funniest video I’ve seen in a while!

The obvious… Such a joke. Yeah, I’m on a drug – It’s called CHARLIE SHEEN!

This has some dirty words so beware…

I’ll just be organizing/cleaning tonight and staring at this appliance waiting for it to magically fix itself… 😦

RIP Ice Cream Maker

Zumba and Body Pump or Spin and Body Pump tomorrow morning?? Decisions, decisions…

Questions: Do you have any good recipes that include Greek Yogurt? If so link them! What are your weekend plans?

PS: I get a lot of random searches that lead people to my blog but today I had one that said “Hot teenage girl runs out of gas in the middle of nowhere” UM WHAT!?
