New foods

Hey all,
Recently, I have been trying to get better at planning and menu ideas and I thought I would share a few of them with you today!

First, Skinny baked potato soup from SkinnyTaste. This soup doesnt taste quite like a loaded baked potato, but it is really yummy and if you are craving something creamy/hearty this is the way to go! The texture of it is creamy, but its more from the thick and hearty texture of the potatoes and cauliflower.

The soup, you can see its creamy but doesnt have cream!

Here is my next go to recipe, Taco soup. I'm sure you have seen this one floating around the blogosphere, its pretty popular! That's probably because it is delicious and a small serving is so filling! Plus, this whole recipe is super cheap because it calls for a lot of canned goods, I usually buy 2 of everything so I can make two batches! This also makes tons of leftovers so its great for grab and go meals! Oh, that pink can is one of my favorite kinds of champagne- in fact this exact picture is most likely going to be my dinner this friday!

The next "skinned up" food I made recently is Mac and Cheese, I know healthy mac and cheese doesn't exist. Now don't get me wrong I wouldn't eat this daily, or even weekly but if you are having craving (Thanks a lot periods) this is a pretty decent option as long as you use wise portion control. Even though its not a perfectly healthy or clean meal I found that it curbs cravings without a crapton of calories! Sorry, I didn't take pictures of this the one night I made it because I was Hangry. 

That's it for new recipes this week, I will try to do some more fun experiments after I go do my shopping this week. Now, for some fun news when I get to 30 followers I will do a giveaway! I'm thinking of doing a few of my favorite things, or maybe something running related! If you don't officially follow now is the time because I am 2 followers away from that! Happy Wednesday!
